Blonde Redhead are a band I've meant to check out but never really have aside from a couple of compilation tracks - what's the best LP to start with?

I've started with misery is a butterfly, but better choice would be melody of certain.

I had to vote twice: La Mia Vita Violenta and Misery Is A Butterfly. I couldn't choose between them. BRH are one of the best bands out there today. Every release is a winner.

You'll love La Mia Vita Violenta. 23 isn't the best, but it's a logical and creative step in the direction they've been progressing.

Misery Is a Butterfly for me. Aside from that one, Melody, and Fake, I don't care for them all too much.

23 is hypnotic, it really is. I must say it's 1,000 times better live. You wouldn't think that they'd translate well live, but they do, and how. Spring and By Summer Fall and Falling Man were AMAZING live.

Falling Man took me by surpirse. He doesn't sing it the same way like th album, but it was still awesome. Spring and by Summer fall and SW are friggin' awesome. My favorite live song (from what I've heard) is Melody of a certain Three.....and 23 heh.

I'm trying to remember if they played Equus or not, because that would be mine. I unfortunately didn't write down the setlist and very little media was recovered from the show....by very little I mean one photo.

I listen to the self-titled almost every day, it's a good wake up album... and La Mia Vita Violenta is one of my favorites too.
ive loved redhead for along time also. my first disc was a gift from a friend( melody of lemons ). he turned me on when that came out.years ago. i must of played it out for a month.now being familiar with all their work i wasnt to keen on 23 either. 2 or 3 songs maybe, plus i had a poor time at the show.

They played that song live, but...it didn't sound too good. I think they messed up a few times actually.

I just picked up the Melodie Citronique and Secret Society of Butterflies EPs real cheap from the local record store.

'Tons Confession' is SUCH a pretty song. I'm shocked I am only just hearing it for the first time. It's a crime that it wasn't included on the Misery album, but instead cast off as a B-side.

2 Months later...

When the hell are they gonna put out something new? I have heard NOTHING about them writing or recording new material since all the commotion of the 23 release died down. I realize Amedeo is an anal perfectionist and Kazu is crazy.... but come on!


PS I think Kazu is lovely and talented.... she just comes off as batty in interviews.
