Growing up a huge devotee of shoegaze, my big brother turned me on to these guys back in the day - shoot, it was 90 or 91. they're less muscular than ride or MBV, less frantically creative than the boo radleys. but they had their finger on the melodic pulse of a pop tune, and got as many spins around my house as all those other bands because of that. his vocals add a bit of melodrama to the shoegaze formula - sometimes it's irritating, but i don't think it takes a lot of imagination to picture a mop-headed 16 year old moping along with this on the way to a high school party. "Baby's Angry" is really just a collection of prior singles. Standout tracks: "Painting Pictures" and "Drowning Inside"



Then came this second album - "Cold Water Flat" - released 1993. It took the pre-existing formula and pushed it forward with a wide variety of supplemental instruments, all really tastefully done, adding to the drama of the vocals and really well-written music. Again, it's not perfect, but i STILL play this one all the time. as someone who writes music on my own, this one has influenced me as much as anything i've ever listened to (and that's not hyperbole). It does it all - up tempo, down tempo, folky, blistering rock - and does it all well. The 3 song ending is saccharine as hell, but a great way to go out. Standout tracks: "Shakesdown", "Crimson", "I wear Your Chain", "Medicine Smile", "Wave". really, all of 'em.

Crazy coincidence: I got a problem-solver, and his name is Revolver.

So then... you're just trolling me right?

And... Jesus said that? Really?


But then again, I'm just trolling you, because I'm hilariously unfunny. What?



Wait for it... wait for it...


That should do it.

Quite the opposite, in fact. Making a little sly joke, and of course once again it upsets people (for some unknown reason) enough to comment on it. Again.

That's just, like, how I saw it though, if someone wants to point out that I was wrong, feel free, I could very well be.
Oh no, I have hated them since the first time I heard them. I didn't even realize there was a time when they weren't well known.

The fact that you think any of this is sad.

I really don't even know how to respond to that. Why, why so hostile?

Unless it's 2005 and you're making Menudo jokes about Broken Social Scene, then it's all acceptable.

 
I've grown to hate them as well.
