Ah fuck, might as well chime in with some more thoughts:
Also, I personally think Truman's Water are amazing... what albums did you hear, PORK? Because they have a few albums of just improv shit. I think they're a really strong band though their songs blend together a bit and they always suffered from kinda crappy production. But they're really good, almost in a Trout Mask Replica-meets-Polvo kind of way. Which is ridiculous to say -- until you hear their cover of HAIR PIE.

I'm confused by the Pavement hatred though I guess I don't really mind it. They're not a mind blowing band or anything, but they are the kings of great melodies.

Also, Animal Collective? ... they're decent.

I bought ''Of Thick Tum'' when it came out at the time and I was really expecting a bomb of a record, and sadly it wasn't as devastating as what I had in mind from what I had read about it. Same with ''Spasm Smash XXXOXOX OX''. The experience with both these records didn't make me want to investigate them further, both live and on record.

Similar thing, and roughly around the same time, I've had with Polvo, hence I often think of these two bands as being similar, even though they are not.


ps: I thought that this thread was about giving personal accounts of whatever disappointing experience you've had with the music of a certain band, not the sort of thread that you get on football forums where you are called a wanker if you don't support someone else's team. Geeks.

There's not many bands that I dismiss as a whole. There are many whose entire output may not always be up to the standards that I expect from them, still, if there's something by them that I like, I just like it and that's it. I never reject a band's record purely on aesthetical grounds 'cause that's boring, it's cheating and ultimately counterproductive.

I didn't write that Truman's Water are a band of no merit, I wrote that that I was disappointed with their music upon hearing it for the first time. That's a differnet thing from childish bickering.

Do you mean you 've been disappointed by Polvo's records ?


Yeah, this thread is about your disappointing experiments with music. But you know, people always want to prove their opinion is the best way to think....

I saw Nebula (headlining with Electric Wizard as support) at the Garage around the time of the Wizard's "Dopethrone" album. I'd heard good things about Nebula, but after 10 minutes of their dull Deputy Dawg-style boogie-riffing bollocks, I made a sharp exit to the nearest pub. Disappointing in the max, they were - at least the Wizard ruled that night.

I think you've got to be a pretty big fan to see them live, I've heard they suck for average fans but real die hard fans get a kick out of it.
