No, I just have The Birth and Death of the Day as an individual track and two of their older albums.

Can you tell me more about these two? I expect to quite enjoy TWDY, but how does it rate compared to the Young Mountain EP? And would the Sigur Ros album be worth my while if I thought the lead single was pretty crap and would have stopped listening to it on their website before it even finished if it weren't for that music video?

Just for that, I consider them legends of Kiwi music. Plus, any song with the line "you're all waiting for 1984 but we all know it's already here" is a winner in my books, no matter how much it sounds like it was recorded in somebody's bathroom by a severely hungover bunch of anarcho-punks.

And , you're talking to the guy who can tell you the precise date and location of every Hawkmoon 269 performance. I, uh, think that says it all.

Personally, I don't consider myself a collector too much. Vinyl's of no use to me, though I love my copies of the One Tree Hill single. I'm more a fan who just wants to hear the music any way possible, i.e. by downloading MP3s. So many of these acts have split up and the musicians disappeared that I don't feel too bad that I simply can't find this stuff to buy at a reasonable price. Hell, I actually once got contacted by the drummer from This Will Kill That and he sent me the band's EP because he just loves that somebody out there cares to hear the music all these years later. He doesn't want money for it, and even if he did, he's lost contact with the lead singer, whose last known location was somewhere in Japan with a J-Rock band ...
Green Day got banned from a TV show in Australia, can't remember which (damn my memory!), for an impromptu performance of "The Grouch", a song of theirs that says "fuck" every other line and the censors couldn't keep up.

<--Vinyl whore. (I really should use that as a screen name somewhere.) I have a stereo that can burn CDs from vinyl, so I can turn them into MP3's if I want to.

That's a cool story but J-rock makes me go A friend of mine's a Japanophile and tries to get me to listen to Miyagi and stuff. No, thank you.

Oh, okay.

This was my first real Explosions album and my second fave behind The Earth Is a Cold Dead Place - I'd recommend getting the whole album.

I greatly preferred This Will Destroy You's EP to this. That release was able to build atmosphere and give you a badass track or two, while the self-titled album only has that atmosphere, but no real payoff. It's frustrating, because I enjoy that band and think they have talent, so yeah. I'd still check it out for your own opinion.

Sigur Ros' album was an easy first listen and I quite enjoyed it. I haven't revisited it since and don't even know which their lead single was, to tell the truth. It didn't grab me as much as their previous albums (all of them except the shitfest of Von), but it still didn't disappoint me. I know El-Mel isn't a fan of theirs, are you?

LM and anybody else who cares, this is the song Wheatfields by The Weeds. Comparatively good mixing compared to the live track, comparatively shit mixing compared to everything else. Listen and realise why this is the only studio release from this proto-supergroup of Kiwi music stars before they all played in the bands that made them awesome (I'd say famous, but ... they weren't).

It's been on my list, just haven't been all that interested in post-rock as of late.

Second re-listen: Demon Days.

Problems:

1. The hiss is louder than the music.

2. The noise is louder than the music.

3. The music isn't that great.

The flow* of the first couple of tracks of this album is surprisingly good. And Kids with Guns is a killer track.

*WTF?

Nowadays, Aussie TV's got nice, lax censorship laws. After 9pm, you can say anything you like, and I'm not sure whether it's after 9 or 10pm, you can show pretty much anything you like too. At 9:05pm, The Chaser once broadcast a series of proposed Aussie tourism slogans, including "fuck, Australia's fucking great, so where the fuck are you, motherfucker?", completely uncensored.

I'm just not too into physical media of any kind, really. Vinyl, cassettes, CDs, they're all useless to me. I just file them and let them gather dust while I listen to the MP3s. So what's the point, you know? I already have shitloads of books taking up too much space.

Hah, yeah, somebody once tried to introduce me to J-Rock and J-Pop and I pretty much ran the other way after a few songs. I find it hilarious that a guy from a Kiwi noise rock band has ended up in that scene.

Since we're rating albums: Foxboro Hot Tubs: 1/2 out of 5. So many things wrong with it, I dont' know where to begin.
