bosstones appreeeesh

so a friend of mine informs me that the mighty mighty bosstones had one hit in the late 90s with "the impression that i get" (which, if he's right, then you all vaguely know it as "knock on wood" ), and aside from that, no one outside of massachusetts gives a rat's ass about the band.

i really couldn't care less if that's the truth. being one of those whackjobs from massachusetts myself, i still freaking love the band.

appreciate with me. come on.

i was going to make this a "hope i never lose my wallet" appreciation thread, but i figured that would go over less well.

haters, keep listening to fleet foxes or whatever is cool now.

Yeah, that's more or less the only song I know off the top of my head. I remember greatly liking their performance of it on SNL back in the '90's though, didn't they have some guy in the band who would just stand on stage and dance the entire time?

that's the second time one of you clowns has come into my thread and said something to that affect. it's going to get old very soon.




yeah, they've got the guy, the bosstone, ben carr, whose sole job it is to dance like a motherfucker. how is that not an awesome job? dude must have had a cardiovascular system of steel back when they were touring regularly.

the hometown throwdown (several shows over several nights in boston. there's a couple out of town as well--rhode island and connecticut) started last night. kickass show.

You let me know the exact moment having a dissenting opinion to yours gets old, ok? Thanks.

if there was substance to your post, we wouldn't have this conversation. "i'll pass," "i'd rather not,"--that's not a discussion. that's just some bored indie snob dangling bait in front of me to try and start a fight. it's weak. but i guess there's a reason you've built up your post count the way you have.

Um. Are sure that I'm an indie snob? Really? Me????

Wow. You don't have a clue about what you're talking about, do you?

I have so many embarrassing songs in my Ipod that it'll make your head spin (Air Supply, Survivor and New Edition are in there for fuck's sake!). Let's not cast aspersions when you do not even know me, ok?

I just hate the band, and a thread about it telling me to apreesh (who talks like that?) it is an invitation to disagree. If you think that I can possibly get drawn into a discussion about why this band is a joke to me, you're mistaken. I dislike their music, I always disliked their schtick, it's as simple as that. If you like them, that's awesome and I'll not question it for a second, but just because I do not should not become a means for you to take a wild swing, and miss, about how my tastes run.

Not a big fan (not a ska fan in general), but I always liked that song "Where'd You Go" - I think it's on the Clueless soundtrack.

I was a ska fan in the early 90's. The shows were just fun and no one including the bands or so it seemed, were taking any of it too seriously. That's what was so great about it.

I wore my plaid converse to a number of Bosstones shows. I think one of the shows I went to was actually in a barn somewhere in Santa Barbara. Someday I Suppose was probably my favorite song.

Gosh I've not heard any mention of the bosstones in a very long time. I have a pair of the plaid converse too! I've got their cd around here somewhere. I loved that Impression that I get song! Good memories when I hear that song.
