Depends what you want.


My personal favorite KMFDM albums are Angst, Nihil, and Xtort, which all came out one after the other.
So I'd say KMFDM circa '93 - '96 is peak KMFDM. I like them when they're angrier and guitar-driven like Ministry lol, but the songs with the funky soul hooks never fail to put a smile on my face either.

I remember that song “Stray Bullet” and some others from the late-‘90s.

How it is that two fuckin' members of the fuckin' band can be both key fuckin' members of The Drones and former fuckin' members of The Drones I cannot fuckin' fathom. Great fuckin' review, though. Fuck you!

Tropical Fuck Storm: A Laughing Death in Meatspace (Tropical Fuck Storm/Mistletone) Crucially, this reboot of vocalist-lyricist-guitarist Gareth Liddiard's Perth-spawned, Melbourne-based, Canberra-averse Drones, who earned grunge-retro renown in their politically dysfunctional land without ever breaking Stateside, leans on three women: guitarist-keyboardist Erica Dunn, drummer Lauren Hammel, and former Drones bassist Fiona Kitschin, without whose shading and amplification the frontman's sociohistorical ravings might evoke a woke Nick Cave flexing his baritone. Although Socrates' hemlock meets Jesus' crucifixion and "The Future of History" details Gary Kasparov's 1997 defeat by a computer, the history part is seldom head-on. But whether the subject is family of assholes in legal trouble they deserve or plywood houses that should be armor-plated, Liddiard's songs are more sociopolitically situated than less verbose types generally manage, plus there's a Trump number where an Oompa Loompa brandishes drones and nukes. "The down side is that we're all about to get royally fucked / And the upside is we're all about to get screwed," he concludes. In most rock, this kind of dark joke comes off cheap if not stupid. Tropical Fuck Storm know how to scare you with them. A MINUS

Today I listened to Can's Tago Mago to and from work. This CD has been in my car for a long time. Also, I put my daughter to sleep to Yo La Tengo's And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out.

the new Barbra Streisand single is quite amazing lyrically. It's still a shit song musically, but wow. Didn't know she had the guts to do this

Yeah, the guts it must take for a Hollywood icon to release an anti-Trump song.

from wikipedia:

Mothra arrives just when Godzilla reaches her egg and engages Godzilla in battle. Briefly, she seems to be winning, even spraying Godzilla with a poisonous powder, though this is ineffective. Despite giving her all, Godzilla hits her with his atomic breath, and Mothra collapses and dies from exhaustion.

but notice how the dotard is unable to focus, because this is what follows:

Fortunately, Godzilla loses interest in the egg and proceeds with his rampage.

lmao

Yo S, you're off the hook: I can't call you TINY anymore. You can thank Miss Stormy, who made it Trump's new official nickname.
