I like Fozzy! Their second and third albums are ace. First one is questionable. Anyway it's irrelevant cos I already have tickets for Kiss.

I really liked Farm. All their albums since their comeback have been grand actually. Heaps of shredding and riffs.

I'm possibly more excited about Built To Spill.

Me too. I hope I can make it, though I may miss it due to my own endeavours. I've seen Dinosaur Jr. twice and it's not a massively rewarding experience unless you love just hearing J Mascis drowning out his bandmates with his 11 guitar amps.

Built to Spill, however. :up:

I saw Dinosaur Jr round about the time of 'Green Mind' on the Rollercoaster tour with the Jesus and Mary Chain, Blur and My Bloody Valentine and it has to be said I thought they were pish...it didn't help that the bass amp blew so J. Mascis played guitar solos to fill in time for fucking eons.

I avoided them after that until I heard 'Where You Been', I couldn't believe it was the same band...I kind of remain happy to listen to the albums rather than see them live though, I've seen them live on telly as well and they were a bit ropey...

Ah, Rollercoaster. A legendary tour. Too skint to go myself.

Heard all about You Made Me Realise though.

Yeah 15 minutes of the same distorted chord was a bit dull TBH. In fact MBV were the 3rd best band that night, the Mary Chain being 1st and Blur 2nd. Even if Blur did have a backing film of someone having a jobby in reverse.

Ha ha, I heard about that too.

I see MBV weren't any better in their heyday then - walked out the Barra's a couple of years ago as I thought they were rubbish. Playing was poor and mix was terrible. Was roundly castigated by many for not "feeling it" or "not getting it".

For the record, I love both albums. Just think they don't cut the mustard live.

I do like the albums, 'Loveless' more so than 'Isn't Anything', but I've always thought they were a bit overrated. Other bands took their formula for guitar effects and did a far better job of actually coming up with some tunes....

I did exactly the same and feel exactly the same way. I was bitterly disappointed with the show at Barrowlands. I walked out after about 5 songs. It sounded like sonic rape. Then I was patronised for "not getting it".
