school me...all ive heard is Daydream Nation........and that Carpenters cover (not really their song though)
First Watch this....
I'll be back with the one but I gotta do some stuff real quick. This thread is gonna be great!
Yeah , thats from the Album "Dirty". Yesterday , this kid at work ask me what would be the best one to get and I told him that Dirty was the best to start with.
Daydream Nation is great , I owned that and listened to it on Vinyl for many many years. Its just an opus, the way they set it up. That shit with elimination jr and kissability and the other 2 tracks all being one tracks is genius.
There is another video that I wanna up but not just yet. It shows how they can melt any song in with another. They know their songs so well that they can slip into them at any given time. Whats dope about that is that they have to switch guitars real quick cuz a lot of their songs are written on specific guitars. One song goes to one guitar and so forth.
I thought about it how its funny that they released an album called "Dirty" and then the next Album was called "washing machine". Washing Machine has my favorite track on it though - The Diamond Sea. I dont care whatever version , its all good.
Look for a soundtrack for a movie called "Suburbia". It had Giavoni Ribisi in it. ITs from the late or mid ninties. Its chalked with at least 4 sonic youth GEMS.
Thurston Moore's solo work is really great. There are 2 albums and a rumored 3rd between those 2 but I never have been able to find it. I have the other 2.
Kim did a project called Free Kitten and they literally dubbed it "Noise ROck". Its okay , I got that too. Used to have the vinyl of that too.
Best 3 SY albums to me at this point are
Honorable mention to Confusion is Sex. I used to dare ppl to sit through Confusion is Sex. Its got a cover of "I wanna be your Dog" on it. Actually the album is called "Confusion is Sex/kill ur idols"
Trust me when I say I could go on and on about this band.
They had all their guitars stolen in the late nineties....
I'll be back with some glitz!
sister is def one of if not their best album and great to start with
Gotta love a band with Chuck D featuring.....
fuck, please like, just listen to the track...
Hits Of Sunshine (For Allen Ginsberg).
Than listen to obviously
Day Dream Nation
and whatever other shit.
Confusion Is Sex.
it's they're most idosyncratic and before all their lyrics became cliches.
it's their best work; less indie, more noisy.
Could I get a list of their albums from first to most recent?..and could someone tell me which is their best?
