Ended up kinda listening to a lot today because there was nothing else to do:
- Exile In Guyville
. I just really like this album, not a lot else I can think of to say right now.
The Sex Pistols
- Nevermind The Bollocks
. Suddenly got the urge to listen to this because I heard a local band cover "Anarchy In The UK" (badly). I think this was technically my first 70's punk album - I got into The Ramones
first, but only had a Greatest Hits Album
, so it doesn't fully count. Anyway, now they're not really near my favorites in the genre, but this is a fun album to listen to nevertheless.
The Better Beatles - Mercy Beat
. So, in 1981, four teenagers from Nebraska who were into Post-Punk
decided to record a bunch of minimalist, deconstructed Beatles covers using bass, drums, vocals, and a cheap monophonic synth. Two of these covers got released as a single before they broke up, John Peel played said single a few times, and years later interest in them somehow spread around the internet enough for someone to track them down and get all their original recordings out as a 27 minute "album". Better Than It Sounds
, at least if you're into things like The Residents
. They're probably obscure enough to warrant a sample track, so here
The Beach Boys
- Pet Sounds
. Actually, sort of by mistake - it was in my Paul's Boutique
case, and the discs themselves look identical if you're not reading the text, so I popped it in the computer, realized I had the wrong CD, then decided I was in fact long overdue for another Pet Sounds
