Two Girls, One Cup ain't shit. Pardon the pun. Back in my day, we had Goatse (the real one, mind ye, not yer pansy-ass ASCII art), Tubgirl, and Harlequin Fetus going around like AIDS in Africa. Ya'll whippersnappers wouldn'a made it a day, y'hear? NOT A DAY!

I might as well recommend summat. Hmm. Haw. Hmm. Meh. I recommend Daydream Nation by Sonic Youth. Buy it, for it is quite full of pure, undiluted WIN. While you're at it, see if you can find Confusion is Sex, just to test your mettle.

As I said, they're one of the originals. Once they started playing music instead of experimental noise, they influenced pretty much every single Alternative band that came after them, and quite a few Metal and Hard Rock bands, too.

I recommend Y: The Last Man. Read it, for it is awesome in my head.

I have to second the Sonic Youth suggestion. I still listen to Goo on a regular basis. Sure, it's only an EP, but a damn good one. A really, really good one.

My friend, EPs are absolutely wonderful. However, as much as I hate to be anal about it, Goo was, in fact, a full studio album. Still, their EPs were no slouch either. Kill Yr. Idols and TV Shit kicked ass.

I stand corrected. Either way, I'm gonna put me headphones in for the drive home (am/fm only in my truck) and listen to Disappearer at a dangerous volume, and on repeat. If I had to choose one Sonic Youth song, that would be it. This opinion may change without warning, but often changes back into this one.

OMFSM, I'm shocked I didn't think of Disappearer. A great track, even it's not my favorite. That honor goes to Death Valley '69. It's a great song, and it has Lydia Lunch, which just adds to it's awesomeness.

FBC's FIVE SECOND MUSIC NERD GLOSSARY(tm):

Death Valley '69 - Absolutely killer track from Bad Moon Rising, Sonic Youth's second full album. Quite heavy, and like the rest of that album, quite dark and chaotic. Very, Very good.

Goo - Sonic Youth's sixth full album, and their most famous album. It was considered a minor success in the industry. It was a far more accessible album than those that came before it, and served as their breakthrough into the mainstream. It's a good album, but I prefer their less mainstream, earlier stuff.

Disappearer - Track 7 from Goo. A very good song. http://jp.youtube.com/watch?v=MySZtE3F-4Y

Lydia Lunch - One of the major figures in the "No Wave" art movement, she was the vocalist for Teenage Jesus & The Jerks. Known for screaming. A lot.

EP - A short album, with maybe eight tracks on the longest of them, and usually less than a half an hour in length. They're usually released by an unsigned band, as a demo tape or to sell at concerts before they make it huge. Some bands release EPs even after getting signed. EPs can also be used by a band to work out what songs are worthy of release on a full album.

Kill Yr Idols & TV Shit - Two EPs by Sonic Youth. Kill Yr Idols was released after their first album, Confusion is Sex. Very, very abrasive, just like that album, and had a few of the kinks worked out. TV Shit was a collaboration between Sonic Youth and Yamantaka Eye, the vocalist of The Boredoms, a Japanese noise rock band. Again, very abrasive.

And since you probably never heard of it:

No Wave: Artistic, musical, and cultural movement from the late 70's and early 80's. Popped up in the East Village, in New York City. In essence, it represented a total rejection of traditional values. Where as the other counter-culture movement of the time, Punk, basically was a bunch of amateurish classic rock bands who played faster than usually and had snotty lyrics, No Wave musicians demonstrated virtually no classical musical elements, and were just dicking around to see what cool new things they could do with a guitar. Vocals would be screamed or babbled nonsense. Lyrics, when there were lyrics (bands would often just babble), would be intentionally nasty or disgusting. The whole point was to turn music on it's ear.

No Wave is an interesting genre just because it's so abrasive that 95% of people can't stand to hear it. Yet there is a small number, such as myself, who love it.

Thar. You learned something today.

Having given Goo another thorough work over on the way home, I ran up the three flights of stairs to my apartment (eighteen-pack of beer in one hand, smokes in the other), and jumped on a big pile of one of my other very favorite "pre-alternative" icons, a little band named Hüsker Dü. Then I listened to some Sugar. Then some of Bob Mould's solo stuff. And the whole time I wrote (well, half wrote, half copied 'n' pasted from earlier versions) a new start to a bit of text I've been keeping myself company with for a while.

The point - Check out Hüsker Dü, Sugar, and things done by Bob Mould in general. Damn good stuff, if you're into that sort of thing.

Husker Du kicks ass. Haven't heard Sugar but I'll check them out.

Yes. Yes, I do. They are far from my favorite, though.

Listening to Copper Blue as I type this, singing along, and tapping foot. Damn good album that I may or may not be seeding in FLAC as I type.
