Anyway, sonic youth and the melvins are two bands that I've actually wanted to get into for a while now, but have been intimidated by the massive size of their discographies, so I'm glad to see 'em on here! I definitely will check out houdini, eggnog, bullhead, lysol, honkey, and the maggot....
as for Sonic Youth, I dig all the songs you posted, especially schizophrenia... the only album I've listened to by them is Daydream nation, which I heard a couple months ago; I wasn't terribly
impressed, but I thought the "trilogy" at the end was amazing
ALSO: do you like KEN mode? I think you'd like them based on shallow, north dakota and kittens (very cool bands)
Wow, thanks for the kind words. I didn't think anyone liked the old concert reviews but I'll see if I can dig up a few more for you.
With Sonic Youth I'd suggest checking out Goo first. Daydream Nation is good but I think they have better. Just remember what I said that for every good song on their albums there's usually a fucked up, skippable song. And for the Melvins I'd suggest Houdini.
KEN mode is opening for Today is the Day next month I think, so if I get to go I hope to make it there in time for them. Did they just release a new album that has some Lovcraftian looking octopus on the cover or something?
