I do love them though. But i'd prefer say Polvo.

See, Polvo have always struck me as the kind of shit that SY fans (who largely have shit for ears) listen to, shitly.

yeah well it's kind of true really.
i do like their STYLE though and the interweaving guitars.
Well i just love all their albums actually, even was heavily into the -mostly hated - "Shapes". Own the nice sexy wax, it's really very sexy.
At this point, i want to quote Batreleaser : "Whatevz"

I think Polvo were brilliant at times, I like how they managed to make something so well structured and melodic out of discordance. In a way, they're like a less interesting, more modern, SY-influenced Magic Band. For true melodic, twisted noise rock genius though, they're definitely no TFUL # 282...

They're catchy, they're weird, they've got some hard-rocking moments, and they don't really sound like anyone else. That makes them unique and special to a lot of people. There are very few original bands that combine those elements that we all love so much. So they get attention.

I like all their LPs and EPs, though only a few of them keep my interest when I listen to them. The others hold my interest for a song or two and then kind of go into background music.

I was really big on them for the past year and a half, but my interest has kind of waned a bit and other bands have moved ahead of them.

I realize in the 90s quirky indie bands were a dime-a-dozen. Quirky indie was the garage rock of the time. Someday someone will make a comp called Grains filled with Polvo, Archers of Loaf, Pavement, Pixies, Breeders, Guided By Voices, Built to Spill, Superchunk, etc. And 50 years from now, someone will try their damnedest to find that 7" of Web in Front in some flea market.

Still, there were a few garage rock bands that are worth listening to more than just their hits, and I'd say the same thing about those 90s bands, and I'd include Polvo in that group.

Eeviac and Spectrum of an Infinite Scale are the two albums that got me into Man or Astro-man? Really the first stuff of theirs I was exposed to. So it's got a special place in my heart, though I love everything.

1999:

The only dead tie. Simply can't choose between Boredoms - Vision Creation Newsun and MF Doom - Operation Doomsday (close second Blur - 13)

2000:

Radiohead - Kid A (close seconds were Boris - Flood and Deltron 3030)

2001:

Endless Summer - Fennesz (close seconds Jay-Z - Blueprint, Radiohead - Amnesiac and Fugazi - The Argument)

2002:

Sonic Youth - Murray Street (close seconds Beck - Sea Change and Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot)

2003:

King Geedorah - Take Me To Your Leader

2004:

Wilco - A Ghost Is Born (close seconds Madvillainy and Arcade Fire - Funeral)

2005:

Kanye West - Late Registration

2006:

J Dilla - Donuts (although if we're talking best new release, there's no question that the answer is the Table Of The Elements John Cale - New York in the 60s box set, although as the title clearly demonstrates, that doesn't really count)

2007:

Jay-Z - American Gangster (close seconds Omar Souleyman - Highway to Hassake and Deerhunter Cryptograms)

2008:

TV On The Radio - Dear Science (close seconds Atlas Sound - Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel and Birchville Cat Motel - Gunpowder Temple of Heaven)

2009:

DOOM - Born Like this

This was harder than I expected actually. It also drove home a few key points, namely that hip-hop really dominated my tastes this decade, perhaps more than was expected, and that in contrast their really wasn't nearly as much avant-garde or noisey stuff that I truly loved this time around as their would be in other time periods. I guess because this was the decade when my musical consciousness was really formed, I just have a lot more affinity with it's popular stuff than I do for other decades. Oh, and that the last 10 years were all about the Doom love for me...

You know, I always thought that about Blonde Redhead, gave them a number of listens and never got into them and even disliked them, but then one day a while back I randomly decided to listen to their first record and was extremely impressed. Since then I've slowly been buying their stuff and enjoying it.

Polvo just kickass, plain and simple. Can never get enough of them!

Great list, fucking Bohren & Der Club of Gore and Secret Chiefs 3, whoo!

(didn't really get into that Have a Nice Life record though it certainly was ambitious, wasn't it?)

Oh yes, it certainly was. I really wish that I had bought the CD from them when the chance was still there, to get that book or whatever that followed that seemed to be very ambitious.

Anyway, I love the sound and the ideas of the record. The mix of post-punk, shoegaze and noise maybe isn't very original in itself, but the way they managed to do it and to create something so dark and gloomy, I love it! The ending track Earthmover is orgasmic.

Oh, don't get me wrong, there's songs on it I absolutely love but the record as a whole is just too much for me, haha. They already have a new one, I think.
