I hate this record because now I can hardly stand the sound of the older ones.

Same here, it made me listen to almost everything I have (lives and 7" rips included), but I find it difficult to deal with the sound of older things up until 1000hurts (too much "reverb" even there ) .

actually, i like how each album is produced, the sound itself is part of the charm in each case.

the only one that needs anything is at action park, which needs to be remastered as the volume is too low for it.

Yeah, I still love all of them deep in my heart, actually, and probably this is just a temporary mental block due to the love for EIG's sound... I hope so.

I have their first couple of singles and I wanted to digitize them so I can listen to them other places than home. Do any of you know how I might be able to do this? I have audio editing software on my computer by the way. Is there some place I could get digital versions of those songs?

Would you call me an idiot if I admitted I knew nothing of Shellac until about 2 weeks ago? I don't have the new one, but I picked up At Action Park on vinyl. Touch & Go did such a nice job with this thing, from the package to the vinyl to the mastering. Oh, and the band's pretty good, too.

dude, my editor is a huge big black fan and yesterday, i blew his mind when i told him steve albini formed a band after that and that he's still playing in a band.

How does the new one compare to At Action Park?

damn if they did an at action park reissue.. jesus.

i remember getting at action park.. i was playing in RUINHORSE, so this was 6 years ago.. we were basically a big black/sonic youth tribute band... and i remember reading a little about rapeman and thinking it sounded amazing but then hearing about shellac.. so i downloaded "idea of north" on napster or winmx or whatever it was back then.. and was like "holy shit i love this!" and then found at action park at a skate shop a few weeks later... couldn't believe it was in there, not like the cd selection was huge or anything... it was all like skate punk bands, bones brigade and all that shit but there was the lil' cardboard cd that said SHELLAC. AT ACTION PARK. and i was like "fuck it it's $10 i'll take a chance."

and i remember listening to it like 3 or 4 times.. i wasn't familiar with "math rock" or anything like that at the time (though calling shellac "math rock" can be considered questionable, for the sake of this story let's leave that term in here), so i was mostly just amazed how different this sounded than anything i'd ever heard before.. yeah, it was still screamin' geeky steve albini, but this seemed so much more.. refined. and i was wondering why not every song sounded like idea of north, haha.. then i realized that every song was actually really really different. and all were important and powerful in their own weird way.

it sounded like nothing i'd ever heard. and honestly, i can't think of many bands i've heard since then that sound like shellac. you'll hear minimalist power trios with math parts, but.. shellac just really have it going on when it comes to inventive song structures and making the discordant seem normal. they're not as complex or as noisey as they are usually thought to be, they're just really really smart, tight, and unique. if only all bands could be like that.

then, i bought terraform and downloaded all the singles and then i got a chance to see them a few months later at rhinos in bloomington.. i bought 1000 hurts on vinyl and got the cd with it. and then there was no shellac activity (except some live shows but none around here!) for years... and this album dropped and .. i haven't listened to it as much as i would like to but it's still amazing.

and i totally agree.. at action park sounds fantastic, the volume's just too low. i don't see any problem with the way any of their records sound, though i'm going to have to give a nod to terraform as the one that sounds the best.

Yes, apparently they did just reissue At Action Park on vinyl. Mine's a brand new copy. And yeah, it weighs if not a ton then at least like as much as stoneware dinner plate.

I like Shellac on Action, though I'd still give the edge to Big Black's Songs about the F-word-gerund.

Funny I never liked songs about fin. It always seemed to me that it was Big Black trying to act and be like Big Black on that record instead of just being Big Black. I liked Atomizer and Racer X much better.

i remember when i bought songs about fucking... my mom was with me, and i didn't want to say the name of the album to the dude behind the counter.. this was forever ago.. i was a sophomore in high school i guess... i say fuck all the time around my mom now but fuck.. anyway, i went "yeah i want to order a big black cd... i can't pronounce the title..." and he looked through the list and he went, "oh, songs about... humping?" i was like, "Yeah!" it was lame.
