Toliet & Bowels is a good example, i know for a fact he thinks the Hot Rock is one his top 50 all time albums (also one where Corin little less "oppressive" i suppose) yet loses him in the follow up All Hand on the Bad One, although i am not sure his opinion on One Beat or the Woods
I've never understood why anyone would either love or hate them. I saw them so many times at shows and parties in Oly when they were one of many bands on the bill and I always thought they were o.k., but nothing special. I honestly think both Excuse 17 and Heavens to Betsy were significantly better bands. When suddenly S-K were being tromped around as the saviors of rock, it was so patently ridiculous. Even so, they were never really horrible, just incredibly overrated.
