    When I have more time, I will give my 10 favorite albums, but two I haven't seen mentioned are

    Alice in Chains-Dirt. Dark grunge that come out in a dark time of my life. The opening Lyrics and guitar of "Angry Chair" can still chill my skin

    Live-Throwing Cooper. "I Alone" most accurately reflects my views on religion at that time, and for a great majority of my life.

    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Was this the band that did the song that is used as the theme for King of the Hill?

    I love that album. "Mekong" is on almost all of my spotify playlists.

    Billy Corgan is such an interesting character. He almost seems like a megalomaniac who thinks everyone is persecuting him. Most musical geniuses are control freaks with the music, but he seemed to want to control stuff beyond the music. The stuff that Pajo and Lenchantin said happened during the Zwan project is crazy.

    He does come off that way, but I don't think that's it. I think what it really is is that he's straight up clinical O.C.D. If he's OCD he's going back into the studio at night to re-record parts they already recorded, etc... a hyper vigilant person can drive those around him nuts.

    OH hell yes. You mean this?



    Was there more than one movie? Btw, I want to shoot the breakdown groove that begins around the 6 minute mark directly into my veins.

    How has no one mentioned D'Angelo - Brown Sugar?

    Also great call on DJ Shadow Endtroducing.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    Interesting. I could see that. HE seems to have a recognition of his problems. This interview was post Zwan. I wonder if he has made amends with anyone in that band since.

    Yes.

    They now function as Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers. They have been a successful recording and touring band ever since The Refreshments broke up. Some of their albums are also stellar. I recommend starting with Americano. The Peacemakers mine the southwest theme a bit more and do a music festival in Rocky Point every year. I went once and it was a blast.

    No, that's the one; my buddy had it on a VHS tape he got off a UHF channel late one Saturday night. Regarding the musical morphonics...I experienced it too, and I feel something similar about 10 seconds after "Polythene Pam" gives way to "She Came in through the Bathroom Window," on Abbey Road, and in "Hummer" when the song changes right after the best Pumpkins line ever, "Life's a bummer, when you're a hummer." There's just something that you feel that takes away all that angst and hurt and like the Offspring said, "soothes even the savage beast."

    There's also something there in Steppenwolf when "Magic Carpet Ride" comes back from the extended solo.

    I don't think so. He recently had a kid and that seemed to really jar him out of the naval gazing; he called up and made amends with James and D'arcy from SP. Baby steps.

    I listened to the Matt Sweeney appearance on the Marc Maron WTF podcast. He said that Billy woke up one day and decided he hated him (and they had been friends since pre-SP success). So there is weird stuff going on in Billy's head obviously.

    I also heard Billy's version from right after zwan broke up where he said he got fed up with band members bringing coke on tour to Europe, sleeping with each other, being immoral, sending his girlfriend shitty texts from his blackberry as a joke, etc. I thought that was a weird line of critique since he's besties with Marilyn Manson. It's too bad-- the early days of zwan were pretty exciting b/c of the music coming out at the live shows and the promise of all kinds of weird tangential albums coming out because of the talented weirdos involved.

    The Pink Floyd 1970 to 1973 era is by far my favorite. I like the quirkiness of Syd Barrett. Its very childlike psychedelia. I also love WYWH and Animals, but Water's destroys the band quickly afterwards. A Waters-less PF isn't much better.

    I love the live stuff from bootlegs during the early 70s. A lot of this is now available with the Early Years compilations released last year. Although not on any other compilation, this is one of my favorite live PF performances:



    Btw, there isn't an ounce of integrity left from the original subject on this thread.

    I mean can you blame the band members from wanting to sleep with Paz?

    Nope. And Black Francis doesn't seem to mind her at all, either.

    Interesting. I don't disagree that all of those are good, but those are definitely unique picks for the best of the best.
