SP-404/Casio/guitar pedals on a table music is like no-comply variation skating. Ya it's cute but don't over do it.

Big fax.
I invented 3 tricks on LSD between 1992-1996. Mike Mo got the credit like way way later I think.

Heard about The Growlers many years ago. Mostly whenever people talked bad about them. Just started listening to their catalog on shuffle. Love this band

Same with Lou Barlow's side/solo projects.

This is funny. No comply skating is still way cooler though.

as long as ISPY is one of them, I’m down with that!

Edit: Also, I feel like your statement is true for most smaller music “scenes” no? Like I could literally replace the word “hardcore” with say “emo” or “power violence” and it would still be true in most cases or sub-genres.

I do not disagree.

I can’t hang, personally. There are a smattering of classics (Bad Brains, Minor Threat, maybe a bit of Disrupt), but by and large it does nothing for me.

But yes, I-Soy is on my list, and I’m trying to get my sis to dig the CD out for me (stored at her place) and bring it when we have a family reunion later on this year. She’s religious, so I’m dreading the convo.

“Yeah, it’s called um, Perversity is Spreading. Yeah. PerVERSity. It’s got a pic of Pope John Paul on it. No, it’s not Christian Rock. It’s got a bunch of colored kids shitting on his head. Yes. Shitting. Feces. On the Pope’ face. Yeah. I know. It’s a joke. Edgy humor.
Listen, can you look for it and bring it?”

Grimes's Visions is the most important record of the last 20 years. That's not unpopular though I think pitchfork said it.
Also not exactly music but that one guy from $alem has influenced fashion the most in the last decade

They’re like Disney channel doing a supposed hardcore band.
agreed they remind me of brockhampton or something

Yeah recommend some of his side stuff to check out?

I like D Jr. alright, but they never really clicked with me the way they seem to have with a lot of other skaters

i disagree wholeheartedly with everyone in here regarding Lou Barlow (especially) and/or any of J Mascis' "side jawns"--nothing compares to the body of music created by Dinosaur Jr

i definitely dig Sebadoh, but it's not even close

@Deputy Wendell I definitely get that.

I still love the first few DJ albums a ton, and some tracks off later albums + some solo J mascis.

Sebadoh just clicked really hard at one point in my life and I went down that barlow rabbit hole super deep and ended up loving the sloppy lofi endearing quality they have. I have grown to love the old eric gaffney tracks and a lot of the j lowenstein stuff. plus loobie writes some excellent lyrics imo

Living All Over Me (and to a degree, Bug) are godhead, but Sebadoh is by far a better band and Lou is a better songwriter (I am still a big fan of anything J. Mascis does).

Did anyone watch the Dino Jr documentary on apple?  It was entertaining but strange.... it seemed like J. Mascis had a hand in making it because it never mentions his notoriously asshole-ish behavior and makes Lou Barlow out to be the real problem of the band.
