Fair enough. Anyway, it's the only one I like. I bought My War but absolutely hated it. I'm gonna put it on now though, just to see if I feel any different about it.

OK. I managed three songs and had to turn it off. I felt like I was back in detention.

It really isn't worth bothering with anything post-Damaged.

OK. I gave them a fair go but can't say I'm into them at all really. Like Pookie says, Damaged is the one for me and that's it.

ehhh...gonna have to go with process of weeding out. it at least has a unique feel to it i can get into from time to time. But only as background music to furious painting or something.

When I was a teenager I only went as far as Slip It In and My War, now that I'm older I love My War and beyond far more than the early stuff. Giventhe poll options I'd pick My War easily as it's my favorite Flag album, but the rest are all fantastic. I think Slip It In could be a contender, matter of fact I was debating getting a SECOND Black Flag tattoo of the nun on the cover recently..... For me the early records are great but they don't hold to me the essence of what BF were all about, gritty, dirty hippies sittin in a van, blasting Skynyrd and then Rollins performing ina little pair of gym shorts and fighting people in someones garage. The Live 84 album is up there for me too.

Oddly I've been playing the I Can See You 12" lately, I know its not one of their best but those songs stick in my head, think I'd have to go with My War too just for the B side tracks, didn't Greg play the bass on this album too?.

Yes he did. Well done. Your Google finger is working just fine.

I'd only heard the Everything Went Black comp in my angry young man days, pleasantly surprised by Process of Weeding Out's jazz/improv/hardcore sylistic expansion upon hearing it last year in my exhausted and distracted days, some other late albums are cool too. Gonna watch that Dave Markey tour doc at some point...

1982 demos are the best release overall. That and "PROCESS OF WEEDING OUT" or whatever are just great. Ginn is an amazing guitarist and relentlessly creative.

GET IN THE VAN is a great book, if a bit silly at times. Rollins is a madman. I love his spoken word stuff and his books and his show but he was technically my least favorite singer of the Flag.

It took me a while to come around to this band because it sounds so different than what I was expecting. They're surprisingly fucked-up, a far cry from the typical "hardcore" and "punk" bands they were lumped in with, in most cases. I love shit like FAMILY MAN even though it seems most people hate it. I like them at their weirdest.

But yeah, Ginn's riffing is always topnotch, some of the best riffs ever written.

Also, gotta give an award for the band with the best album covers of all time. Raymond Pettibonn did most of em right?

edit: Oh, I already said "82 Demos" 3 years ago. Go get that thing! the 2 guitar attack is incredible.
