Hail has 2+2=5 and Go To Sleep, the rest sorta sucks though.

I like Paranoid Android and one or two other tracks from OK Computer, but as an album I find it very unfulfilling.

T Rex - their hippy stuff can be fairly painful at times, but the Glam ROCK stuff is Power Win all the way, baby.

sarram - some of it IS good, but the Tolkien nonsense makes me want to knaw my hands off. And as the late, great John Waters said, he did have a bit of a Larry the Lamb voice then.

The Stone Roses?!?

Prior to their first album they were pretty awful. Saying that they were only ever really 'awesome' on that first album and the 'Fools Gold' EP.

The Boys Next Door/Birthday Party - the first Boys Next Door LP ("Door Door"), is pretty blah (save the awesome "Shivers"), but all else that followed was godlike...

I'd have to agree with you there, the early singles that I've heard are disposable at best. Though for me Second Coming is their best stuff, its more... dancey, 'Begging You' being one of the best dance tracks I can think of.

i'm not sure if pulp were mentioned. but they were terrible at the beginning and then released three amazing albums.

yeah, "2+2=5" is the best song off "hail to the thief" and is an actual good song. the rest of the album is pretty bad to terrible.

I actually like most of the Beach Boys early shit over the later stuff. Though Pet sounds is my favorite, the smile/smilie smile shit is my least favorite. I know smile is supposed to be amazing but most of it just doesn't deliver.

Finally, ironically, heroes and villains is one of my favs. But their early shit? they were a solid band, way more solid than later.

Early beatles was solid too, nothing like a bunch of drunk brits on a shit load of uppers. They didn't start awful, or mediocre...the hamburg days were their best and they road that wave until they stopped playing shows. Then they got awesome again. fuck u if you don't love strawberry fields.




I would also say the black lips, tho that's kind of unfair. They've been a band for 8 years so when they first started, doing traditional, kind of boring punk, they were mediocre....but then tapped into the psychedlia and shock rock with their second album.

hmmm....

This is kind of a tough thread tho.

I think the Stones sucked until the early 70s material.


I would say Silverchair was pretty bad, looking back. I liked their single when it came out...in 4th grade haha.

I stopped listening to them for years, until diorama came out, and I liked that alot. I think they became very good as a band, but really overproduced the hell out of their records...making me dislike them alittle. That could just be their labels call tho...silly australians.

The dissociatives are pretty cool.

Whatever, most of you probably hate me now after this post. go listen to norwegian black metal and cut yrself!!!!!!

well, some of that is rad too actually

i thought that door door had some good songs (other than the awesome shivers)
but its nowhere near the b-day party.
are you familiar with the israeli band the witches 90's duet with cave singing shivers? its pretty good.
they were a pretty decent band as well. one of israel's cult punk bands' who disbanded when their singer died in a car crash

I can't really think of any band... :/

hail to the thief is my fav. kid a and amnesiac are great. ok computer is good. the rest of the albums might take a week until i get bored of them, except for 'permanent daylight' out of 'my iron lung ep' which is... brilliant.

That's a better version than Cave's, if you're asking me. And there's a (lesbian) friend of mine who used to go out with an (Israeli) girl who looks just like the blonde girl in the video. Popular look, or brushes with fame?

could be. they were popular in the mid 90s. so shes probably in her 40s now...
im pretty sure that all three members are gay though, so the chances are good
