Saw GBV in New Orleans in about 2000. Great show.
Man when I hear a GBV song, I will think, finally, the first time I've ever heard a GBV song. The only reason I know they exist is because of BBTF.
I threw a no hitter in high school a couple of times. Until the 2nd inning or so.
Man cannot live by classic rock along. Well, should not, anyway.
45 songs... just ridiculous.
Of course I've lived in Arizona for 10 years and just discovered the Gin Blossoms a month ago, so odds are my musical range is far too narrow.
So that's what, about an hour and ten minutes?
GBV is my all time favorite band ... to poop on.
it takes a tremendous songwriter to keep recycling the same tired riffs, most of which were stolen from other, better bands.
but the best bands were -- as is pretty much always the case -- completely off the radar ... the Nervous, International Language, the Out Crowd, etc. etc. etc.
I think gef's argument is almost 100% accurate, but he didn't pick the right bands to make the argument.
How can you hate a band whose music you've never actually heard?
Oh, but Redd Kross is probably impossibly mainstream for gef. I don't know if you guys are on the same wavelength.
Three bands, that you were friends with, that combined to release about five songs total ... these were probably not the best bands of that time and place.
There's no way this is a true. The best bands generally rise to the top.
just in case it wasn't clear (as may well have been the case), that I was talking about bands in local scenes
That was a good period for music in the Valley
