I'm curious. They sold a lot of records, to someone.

I'll admit... there was. What was it, eh, 1994?

They played the first festival I ever went to, as a little pokkeherrie. Much later I bought that album from the sales racks, but I don't think I ever even played it once.

I might add, the one I got was second hand, so wouldn't even count in the sales figures.


I like how you phrased that question in the thread title.

Yes, I was into them when that record Black Love came out, I listenend to some of their other records and thought they were crap though, then some years later i came back to Black Love and wondered what I ever liked it for in the first place

i listened to this song so many times i can't tell what i think of it anymore

No, that was the point when I began to realize that Sub Pop could do wrong.

I remember a few years ago buying one of their cds for 49 cents because I had heard that they were good and I'll always take a gamble with such a small amount if I have it. I listened to it, but I thought it was quite boring. I don't think it must have been one of their better albums, but I didn't really care for investing any more money in them. The cd had a picture of an astronaut in Earth's orbit, but didn't have the band's name or the name of the album. I think it may have been called 1967, but I don't really remember.

I'm not sure I've ever especially liked Afghan Whigs, but I like a few of their songs. This one comes in for a particular amount of love from me:

Close, it's 1965, their last album.

There was a moment when I first consciously heard of the Afghan Whigs, and that was right now.

Will I regret it? Time (as well as YouTube, Wikipedia, and iTunes) will tell.

Gentleman has some fucking amazing songs on it, especially the one with the singer from Scrawl. Also, "Be Sweet" is a masterpiece. Not really my kind of band but they're not bad.
