V/A - Pyloric Waves
I'mma be honest y'all, this record ain't all good. There are GOOD parts, but there some steaming piles of dogshit you gotta avoid first. I am sharing it here for two reasons:
1. As a proud son of the tarheel state, the fucking REAL Carolina, not that "South Carolina" bullshit, I am obligated to have owned and committed to memory this record.
2. There are a couple real gems hidden in the bowels of this monster, so if you're adventurous enough, you will be rewarded.
Robert Delany - ok, not a band...sue me.
Well Nigh Forgotten - yikes, these dudes were terrible, I remember walking out of a bunch of their shitty shows.
Picasso Trigger - a great band, although not greatly represented here.
Blue-Green Gods - no bueno
Matt Malloy- huh?
Slowchange Madagascar - cruddy college rock, back when that meant you were resigned to the college town ghetto scene.
Polvo - now we're getting somewhere...excellent as usual.
Geezer Lake - such a good band that nobody outside of Greensboro, NC ever heard of. Not their best song, but good.
Orifice - nice, weird, droning good stuff. I can't remember who or what these dudes were, but me likes.
Vanilla Trainwreck - they tried real hard to be a big alternative rock band, but instead they were a small sucky no-name band.
Toxic Popsicle - despite the idiotic name, no, they are not a third rate mid-80's thrash band...worse...an alterna-funk band.
Boil - would have been way better with decent production, and the elimination of the funky drums
Shiny Beast - fucking godhead! this band should have been huge, and I mean that for real.
Camper Van Chadbourne - fucking tedious.
Eighthundred - shoegazing Smashing Pumpkins?
Superchunk - never heard of 'em.
Erectus Monotone - a better band than this song would lead you to believe...believe me.
Bicycle Face - they used to play a lot of shows, but somehow I never saw them. I consider myself lucky.
