Reading note 1: I'm saying that things aren't sexy after they're [for the sake of argument] '18' years old. See also: wine, whiskey.
Reading note 2: I actually came to prefer Ecstasy and Wine after a housemate pointed out that they're actually quite good at jangly indie songs and all the pedal frippery was just appealing to wankers.
Reading note 3: I should probably also say that the point that Porky and I agree on is that people talk about things that excite them in such a boring way. Have some fucking teenager in thee or admit that you are Jools 'Jools fucking Holland' (fucking) Holland.
I admit my posts from this thread do make me cringe when I read them over.
I guess I just really ... Ah. Shit. I really like the band (Jesus) and it would-um-suck if it sucked?
I hate myself right now.
Anyway, I'm truly excited about this, and It's probably not going to physically/perceptually possible for me to dislike it. But I am also nervous in a way that is really quite embarrassing for someone my age. I am not sure why.
By the way, I think I listen to the EPs more than either album. I have nothing against any era of mbv, but i prefer their "jangle pop" side as well.
