or What Goes On

Severian 07.27.2017 08:38 PM

Bah!

It's obviously "Sister Ray" or "White Light/White Heat" or "Heroin" or fucking gobs of other tracks. Weirdo.

Severian 07.27.2017 08:39 PM

"Sweet Jane" (obvious I know, but also kickass)
"The Gift"
"Rock n Roll"

Bah!

Rock N Roll

Their entire discography is one long awesome song.

Severian 07.28.2017 10:10 AM

Yeah, but I think "Sister Ray" is their defining moment.

I do agree that everything from all four of the true VU albums, and everything from "VU" is pretty goddamn perfect. But "Sister Ray" is their, "You thought you knew the truth of rock, but you don't know shit" song.

And if you can't make it all the way through "Sister Ray," then you are a pussy.

This theory is disproven by "I'm Sticking With You."
Does "Squeeze" count?

:eek:

"I'm Sticking With You" is essential!!!!!


Th'Fuck?!!

Not only that, but that song sungle-handedly gave birth to the White Strpes... a band that, I maintain, was fucking solid.

I really hope you're not being a jerkass, because there is nothing not genius about that lyric or any element of "Sister Ray." :mad:

noisereductions 07.28.2017 11:14 AM

um... "I'm Sticking With You" is awesome!

I don't know if Squeeze "counts" in the statement that I made. But I do like that album a lot as its own thing.

Savage Clone 07.28.2017 11:25 AM

I'm sticking with you also gave birth to a lot of cutesy infantilized twee garbage that we see all over the place as well. Though I suppose Olympia Washington is equally to blame. It's not like they don't have their fair share of Clunkers in general though. Everybody does when they put out a decent amount of albums. The murder mystery song is pretty tedious if you ask me.

Rob Instigator 07.28.2017 11:34 AM

lots of tediousness in VU catalog.

The Murder Mystery is great.

They only put out 4 albums (Squeeze does not count, of course). No skippable tracks in my mind.

Olympia, Washington? You're blaming Oly for cutesy twee? The hell? Oly also gave birth to Unwound, and a veritable fuckton of other decent hands and artists.

Do you just not like Beat Happening?
