In fact, you know what I'm going to do? Time to do a running diary of The Weeds' Wheatfields EP!

Vampire Weekend is done. I'd give the record a 6 1/2 or so. There's nothing offensively bad on the album, but hardly anything that I'll come back to. "Bryn" is an exception; even though the main riff sounds like "A-Punk" slowed down, it's the only track I would deem great.

Do you not give a fuck about the Oxford Comma?

It's probably the only song I'll listen to from that album.

I give it a 2.0 and a "enjoy vanishing into obscurity within two years".

First up by The Weeds is the song Wheatfields. Distant bassline ... roughish guitar ... need to turn up the volume to hear this properly. Vocals at a poor levels.

And now a bunch of them are singing at once and it's just not mixed well enough for the harmonies to work. The guy who sings the verses is at a different level to the others. Then it builds up the chorus over and over again, trying I think to be either manic or anthemic but it's just confused and some guy's scream near the end brings some lulz. Can't believe how many legends of Kiwi music are involved in making this. Bit of a poorly executed mess but it's listenable and possibly even catchy.

That line about chapstick makes me want to collectively destroy the entire band.

And then Trouble by The Weeds. The high pitched noise oddly enough didn't seem to be there. Maybe I played it through shit speakers last time or something. But oh god, the levels are all over the place. Different instruments coming in just fucks with the sound. Some are fuzzy. The vocals are often incoherent. And it barely seems like a properly thought-out song anyway.

Nobody should buy this. And luckily, nobody will, because there were probably only 200 pressings in history and some random Kiwis have them and you'll never find them.

Well, that was the quickest running diary anybody's done.

Heh, sure. I also have some early eighties Kiwi DIY anarcho-punk that is just ... fucking odd. I'm tempted to use a track in one DI installment just to mindfuck people.
A mental mindfuck can be nice

I love obscure music, especially when it's one of those niches that hardly anybody knows about. Like Lookout! Records stuff. I'm a collector. I hope to have everything they put out one day. I have a copy of the first album they ever released. Lookout! Records # 0001, The Lookouts!...fuck me, I've forgotten ... (not the actual LP name. I can't believe I can't remember). Lookout! records was founded by the founding member of The Lookouts! (get it?) Lawrence Livermore, even less experienced on the guitar than Bono, and sings about as well as...uhm I think even Adam Clayton sings better than Lawrence, tbh. But I have everything The Lookouts! ever released.

I should apply this encyclopaedic knowledge* to something useful.

*Knowledge: Originally written and performed by the founding members of Operation Ivy and recorded on their debut LP. Was covered by Sweet Children (later Green Day) on their 39/Smooth album and has since become a live staple in which the band invites audience members to play while the band sings. Usually results in Tre kicking bad drummers out from behind his drums.

I really should use my powers for good instead of evil.

Hey LM, mind if I send you Wheatfields by The Weeds? You know your music shit, and I'd just love to see your reaction to the mixing on this song.
