UNWOUND
« on: July 12, 2022, 09:58:11 AM »
post punk/post hardcore/etc gods from the 90's Unwound are getting back together for some reunion shows throughout the US early next year. It probably won't be the same without Vern but I never thought I'd get the chance to see them live. I will most definitely be coppin a ticket!

@tonitonne did you get tix?

@Deputy Wendell I was surprised there wasn't already a thread either! both those tracks are great. for your entertainment is such a bangin' ender. I wasn't familiar with that first instrumental track. I have jumped around a lot on their releases and didn't listen to them in correct order. I think I started with Repetition then moved to Leaves, then backtracked to Plastic Ideas and the future of what. Still have a lot to dig into which makes me stoked because my appreciation of them has only grown

@frank they're having the bassist from Karp join which is pretty rad. You gotta try to make it to one of the shows !

Big Unwound fan, bummed that the odds of me making it to one of those shows is slim to none. I'd be interested to see if this leads to any new music. Those Numero reissues undoubtedly introduced them to a wave of new people.

Another huge Unwound fan here. I saw their farewell tour and figured that'd be the last time I'd ever see them. Looking forward to seeing them again next year. I've "seen" them a few times (one time at the Fireside where they didn't set up on stage so I didn't see shit but the crowd) and on that last tour they were a 5 piece if memory serves. David Stone Scott handled the second guitar and keyboards. It's been really gratifying watching their profile grow over the last few years. I was worried they'd be sorta forgotten. RIP Vern

If you guys had to pick a favorite album what would you say? I'd probably go with Fake Train.

Fuck repetition is so good. Definitely my other fave.

As far as faves go, I go back and forth between Repetition & New Plastic Ideas; both heavily sessioned.
Was very stoked on the idea of going to see them this go round, but canít justify the cost; major bummer.

I love all the more raw albums too but I'm a big fan of when they started to stretch out and fool around with their arrangements and brought in different instruments. Consequently, Challenge for a Civilized Society is probably my favorite. My friend called it Beatlesesque at the time and now I can't unhear it. I also really like Leaves but it is a bit of a abrupt direction change and I wasn't surprised that fan reaction to it wasn't too hot when it came out.

Anybody get tickets for any of the LA shows? It felt weird dropping a bill to see them but I guess I missed out on general admission tickets yesterday so I had to buy a ticket in the pit. They deserve the money anyway.

@jakeumms I got tickets for the first LA date. Yeah, regarding the price it definitely feels weird dropping money like that but when I think about how much I've enjoyed they're tunes it sits fine with me hah

funny, other than maybe the Cocteau Twins, i don't know if there is another band who has me so often thinking when listening to albums--and even if this is a fleeting emotion--that this might be my favorite song ever...does that make sense? case in point

in re the conversation about trying to pick a favorite album--and i know this is an ever-changing thing--but i am definitely in the throes of a Fake Train episode this past couple of weeks...have had a lot going on emotionally and with family, and this album is doing it for me in a serious way throughout

also, hard to play "Kantina" (above) and not follow right into...

Leaves Turn Inside You was always my jam, but isnít that a big departure from their emo/hardcore shit? I like that shit too but my first unwound experience was LTIY
