    Obvious choice, but still a classic. So much energy that never made it to their studio work.

    I had a feeling you would be on board with this development. I am less pleased, but the announcement of the band continuing without him and touring the US (among other countries) is encouraging.

    i imagine they just came to the realization that him being across the country just wasn't working out... excited for the tour.

    Yeah, his moving to Portland had a noticeable impact on the band's momentum. I've always liked the interplay between his guitar-playing and the synth work by the other two - to me, it's become the band's most distinctive element - but anything that theoretically frees them to go in further new directions has to at least be perceived as a potential benefit.

    Holy shit! I had always wondered who did this song, and having never really listened to The Sonics before I just looked them up on Spotify and just stumbled upon it. Fuck yeah. I love this song.

    5/01 - Sleater-Kinney - Palladium
    5/03 - Lightning Bolt/Liturgy - Echoplex
    5/05 - Thee Oh Sees - The Smell
    5/08 - The Acid - El Rey (?)
    5/14 - Melody's Echo Chamber - Roxy (?)

    Link Wray did it first. And it was banned for obscenity. Still probably the only instrumental to win that distinction.

    Alright. Three things.

    1. That song is not by the Sonics but by Link Wray, who is responsible for some of the greatest instrumental rock of the 60s and fuck it some of the purest rock of all time.



    2. The Sonics are fucking awesome, even if they aren't responsible for "Rumble." Some of the rawest, most deranged and durable garage rock of all time.



    3. I'm not sure if I pity you or am jealous of you for all the stuff you missed as a teenager.

    Look people, if you've made it this far being a rock fan without hearing the entirety of the first Nuggets box set, stop whatever nonsense you're doing and get on that. Once you've absorbed that into your system, you can join back in the conversation about music things. Aside from the Beatles, it's the Rosetta Stone for all 3 minute pop songs with guitars made in the past 40 years or so.

    Scripture. Truly, truly scripture. You even get to hear Ted Nugent before he was vocally insane. And so much great early psych.

    I wish there was a similar collection for 50s early rock stuff. So many of those 50s singles are just astoundingly great (Link Wray being a prime example.)

    Nuggets is pretty incredible. You will also be surprised by how many songs you know.

    I've got this, Bryan. A low bit rate rip, but not exactly the highest fidelity stuff in the first place. I'll group it later.

    Slight subject change:

    I fucking love The Pogues. Rum, Sodomy & the Lash is so great. Irish music in general embodies so much of what I enjoy about music; especially the communal aspects. It makes me happy to be alive.

    That's the other one I was thinking of. For some reason, I thought it was called Shake Rattle & Roll so I couldn't find it online. /coolstorybro

    YES. That is far and away the best the Pogues album, although Peace and Love is nearly as great. But they pick up on the vibrancy of Irish music so perfectly on Rum. The Sick Bed of Cuchulainn inspired me to read the Cuchulainn epics, and he was a fascinating legend. Still not as exciting as that song though.

    I was listening to Yoko by Beulah today and even though it's been something I've heard countless times before over the span of a decade, I was blown away by the songwriting and emotional impact of these songs. Also the whole story of how it was their last record and they essentially knew it before release (hence the album title) kind of boggles my mind.

    Anyone ever listen to these dudes?

    A song from that album just came up on shuffle tonight, really good stuff. I haven't listened to them hardly at all before, but they're on the to-do list.

    Yoko is their best release. Everything they did was great though, but Yoko holds extra weight, based on what Paul mentioned there.

    And Chris, recognize the schooling on the previous page. It's some good shit.

    Freeleech that stuff while the tokens are available.

    And for all of you, check out Jeffrey Lee Pierce - Ramblin' Jeffrey Lee and Cypress Grove with Willie Lee. It's the best delta blues album ever done by white guys from LA. The version of Pony Blues just shreds.

    Unrelated, but New York Dolls and the Stooges are the best bands to do anything to, basically.

    In a way, yes. I've been re-downloading stuff I have at low bitrates and that prompted me to listen to the Dolls for the first time in awhile and they embody everything I love about punk and feel kind of got lost when hardcore and crust and stuff came around. Takes me back to when I was 15 years old and how fresh and exciting all that shit was. As for the Stooges, I maintain that Funhouse is the single best rock & roll album of all time, if you want to talk about the very fucking essence of what rock is and should be. There are albums that are more adventurous, that pushed further, that took the rock song into more unexpected places, but none that caught the pure primal raw power (including that album) anywhere close to as perfectly as Funhouse.

    Also, anyone who hasn't heard The Monks - Black Monk Time, please stop wasting your life.

    Yes! That first album is perfect. And I totally feel the same about the Stooges.

    You turned me on to The Monks record from another thread, such a gem right there as well.

    I'll have to give the New York Dolls another go-around, as they never clicked for me. It was the same with MC5 when I was younger though, and now I love them, so it may be time.

    And Funhouse is perfection.
