and guitars are a great way to deal with ex-girlfriend problems. always has been.

Punk is, by my definition, more often the latter than the former. When I think of punk, true punk, I think of Half Japanese, Beat Happening, Sonic Youth, Spacemen 3, the Fall, Ramones, Stooges, and the Birthday Party. All bands that it would be unfair to call " angry," since they made music that channeled so many emotions other than anger and frustration.

That said, I also think of tons of pissed off bands, who were defined by their pissedoffedness (Minor Threat, Albini/Big Black, Nirvana, Dead Kennedys). most of those bands were more frustrated than angry, or they were angry about social issues. Anger is definitely part of the deal, but it's not a prerequisite for punk. Emotion, however, and an absolute refusal to inhibit the expression of your emotions, no matter how chaotic, silly, or retarded it makes you look/sound... That is an absolute necessity.

Those bands up there did anger, sure. But they also did whatever the fuck else they were feeling. Punk is more artistic by design than angry, from my perspective. I think it's a broader genre than the stereotypes would suggest.

Gutter punks are pretty angry and violent. Though the angry ones tend to be the alcoholic ones, who are usually pretty good people. It's the smack and speed fiend gutter punks who will surprise you with how quickly they can get a sharp object into your leg and start throwing blows.
And these are the 39-40 year old "GP" I'm talking about. The 20-30 are probably absolute fucking bastards, and I hope I never encounter anyone under the age of 20 who I would call, or who calls himself (because really, what's worse than that, you know?) "gutter punk." I don't think I would be able to handle it.

You know, that is a true statement. In my teens and early 20s as a punk, we used to get into way too many brawls. That is in part, a significant reason why a joined up with a bunch of Rastafari folks, after spending several years getting into street fights hanging out with punks and getting fucking shot at hanging out with gangsters (yeah, I made a lot of poor decisions in my younger days), a lifestyle around peace, harmony, and brotherly love with your neighbors was very centering. Its made me an entirely different person, and I haven't had to get in a fight or almost stab somebody in at least seven years!

Quote:

That summarizes my best friend Mikey D and like 10 other people I used to hang out with. Me and Mike were in a crust band together. Mike was a fucking brawler, and a miserable drunk. but he remains one of the best people I've ever known, guy has serious heart. He settled down, sort of, just last year after having his first son. We were thinking, finally! Yeah, gutter punks will get you into some shit, but it is what it is, great music and as you said, drunk aside generally good people.

to me, boring is something like Adele.

then again, over the years i've seen pretty much every artist getting called "boring" here, including SY themselves.

name one artist who isn't boring. YOU CAN'T.

chocolate ladyland, sweet jesus the top two are good. FF not really what I wanted from them but having followed them for so long it's a development which is wholly welcome. armed courage is just another fucking classic from a band who are certainly among the greatest of all time at this point. since I last paid out halcyon digest on here it's gained a bit of respect in my eyes (mainly because monomania is perhaps the worst album I've ever heard in my life, seriously), not because of its songs but rather a renewed like for its atmosphere, that feeling it perpetuates. still not a patch on microcastle/weird era, much less cryptograms and fluorescent grey.

 

brilliant when you're absolutely and utterly fucking miserable. stone island is also fantastic, can't even begin to think about how I should digest these records given the history of hype (RIP my lovers, the last visionaries of pop)

Armed Courage is seriously the best Dead C album I have heard. Better than H7R, better than The White House, better than all of them.

I was comparing In Ute with Bleach and Nevermind, two propulsively listenable albums. In Utes is like a dirge I don;t wanna hear. Mudhoney does dirges better than In Utero in their sleep.

Probably. Yeah. But Nirvana made better songs and better albums, and were a better band with a better name, a better overall and better lyrics and more unique sound than Mudhoney will ever be capable of creating.

I fucking love Mudhoney, but comparing them to Nirvana really just isn't fair. It's like saying Zorro could beat up Batman. Mudhoney did a lot of amazing things, and I don't think the true magnitude of their greatness has even been realized yet. But come on, man. Nirvana has them beat.

In Utero is NOT a dirge, it is more noise (Radio Friendly Unit Shifter) and feedback (Francis Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle, Serve of the Servants, tourette's) than Nevermind or Bleach were. In that regard, you'd think the Sonic Youth community would love it even more!! I think In Utero better reflects a Nirvana live stageshow than Nevermind does..

I quite liked the singles that came out before this LP but this is better.
