    "no background singers. . . they couldn't help me anyway."

    —WARNING: HERESY-FILLED STATEMENTS TO FOLLOW—

    fuck sonic youth.

    fuck dinosaur, jr.

    fuck fugazi.

    fuck the butthole surfers.

    fuck any stupid boring indie band from the 80s that you think is cool.

    slovenly was not only inifnitely cooler, they could play any of those poseurs off the stage in a matter of minutes.

    "we shoot for the moon" is their definitive statement and easily one of the best records ever made. if anyone truly wants to look for a distinctly american answer to joy division, i got yr americana unknown pleasures right here, joe. isolated atmospheres, oddly resonant esoteric lyrics and a penchant for downright beautiful melodies. and a dual guitar strike that is nothing short of perfection. side one of this album is simply cinematic, building to the incomparable highlight of "a warm night / hellectro." imagine television, but actually punk and every song is as tuneful as 'marquee moon' or 'little johnny jewel' but with really complex harmonic aspects.

    there are so many worse records you could listen to, but not many that are better.

    also they cover neil young a good year or two before that was even considered okay, not to mention cool.
