Good Old Stupidity

I had this on twelve inch. I gave it away in a pile of records I was just "giving away." Good records. I didn't want them taking up space. This was before I decided to start buying records again.

That was stupid.

Velocity Girl - Crazy Town. eBay. Used.

I'm often hesitant to check out bands with names like Such and Such and The Such. It's stupid. There's no real logic to it. And I'm glad I sometimes take a chance so I find things like this.

Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs - I Watch You/Be Nice. iTunes.

I thought this double seven inch was a pretty good eBay find. I'm not sure if it was available domestically. For some reason I think it might have been a European release.

Velocity Girl - I Can't Stop Smiling and Labrador. eBay. Used.

I purchased this after reading a blurb. Sometimes blurbs lead me to the best things.

It reminds me a lot of Wavves. Which might be for some, not for others. Hopefully it's for you, the reader.

Wild Smiles - Sweet Sixteen/Tangled Hair. iTunes.

It's been twenty years or so and I still don't really know what I think about Urge Overkill.

Urge Overkill - Now That's the Barclords. eBay. Used.

When I first read about this band, I thought I'd like it more than I do.

It feels like Travis-lite. Coldplay-lite. I don't know. Something I might have been way more stoked on circa 1999.

Kodaline - High Hopes. iTunes.

I might have posted this before? Who cares. Good record. Great band.

Unrest - Cath Carroll. Long In the Tooth. Used.

I went to see Cold World at what I believe was the Philadelphia Dance Company space on Preston Street. The Mongoloids played. I was hooked.

The Mongoloids - Mongo Life. Six Feet Under Records Webstore. New.

Seek Them

As you know, they continue to be near the top of my "Britpop's Underrated" list.

The Boo Radleys - From the Bench at Belvidere. Used.

Changes In Attitude

I was never the biggest fan of The Beta Band, so I'm not sure what possessed me to check out this single.

But I really enjoy it.

So much so that perhaps I should reanalyze my position on The Beta Band.

Steve Mason - Oh My Lord. iTunes.

Nineties Times Two

Double dose of some West Coast nineties awesomeness.

Struggle/Undertow. Mike. Used.
