If I wanted to get a Super Furry Animals record, and I like that song Into the Night, is that the one I should start with?

If you shout.

All good stuff. Been a fan of "nuggets" since the CD era began.

I can tell you that Dave Allan is more "fuzz guitar" than "surf" guitar. The pop music scene changed overnight with the Beatles. The first casualty was surf music. RIP 1960 - 1964. But the popularity of the Beatles spawned thousands of "garage" bands and as the decade progressed and effects and pedals created for the guitar and drugs entering the scene, the music evolved as well. Garage branched out into fuzz, heavy metal and psychedelic. But still was rooted in blues and folk; Hendrix, Cream and the Byrds being good examples.

It's primitive but authentic, simple yet great. In short, everything modern pop music isn't.

I want to stress what I originally said, re: Allan--"surf inclinations." I know what you mean, though, and that's a bit part of what I love about him! He has these clean, lick-y parts which either alternate with, or are themselves drenched in, heavy fuzz. Awesome. Do you have Devil's Rumble, that gigantic compilation of his best work?

Well, it's on Hey Venus!. The only other song of theirs which features Turkish instrumentation is on their most recent release, Dark Days/Light Years. The song is called "The Very Best of Neil Diamond." You could start with either of those two or any of the others or Songbook, their singles compilation. They have never released even a decent record--only good and great (and sometimes perfect) ones. You can't go wrong, as they are easily the most consistent band since The Beatles.

Since I'm in the psych thread, I guess I'll suggest the new one, Dark Days/Light Years. It veers the closest to psychedelic territory, though on some songs quite a bit moreso than on others. It also veers dangerously close to being too good to believe.

You're god damn fucking right, it was a big fucking mountain. Amazing record, yeah. Nary a sour note on the whole thing, as far as I could tell. And fairly psychedelic, too! Score.

Only a few days until I finally see Roky Erickson (for the second time, no less!), on Halloween! Going to be baller, let me tell you.

This...holy fuck. This compilation is just...outrageously, audaciously great. Incredibly eclectic, too. The last track, by some Scandinavian (I think...?) band called Baby Grandmothers, is called "Somebody Keeps Calling My Name." It just melted my fucking brain. JESUS F.
