Good Luck is a more accessible Big D album than Strictly Rude, though I like Strictly Rude quite a bit.

The Best of 3rd Wave TV, an out of print VHS that has a lot of awesome bands, and starts out with some vintage Reel Big Fish.

My least (all relative of course) favorite might be Mephisto's Cafe

That's actually my favorite song on the album, the "don't crack" part after the trombone solo reminds me a lot of the "waited for the phone" part in point/counterpoint.

Worst tracks on the album have to be Watch it Crash and Forty Days. This does not mean they're bad songs, though.

Good Luck is such a loving good album

It's certainly my favorite Big D album, but the album doesn't really compare to any of my favorite Ska albums in general. There's a lot of good tracks to skank to like 5 Kids Down, Dirt Lip, and Learning to Listen, so I'll give Good Luck that much.

Looks like Laura Stevenson and the Cans, who were great tonight, and The Swaggerin' Growlers, who I've never heard of.

You were at the Covington show? The trumpet player was absolutely shitfaced after they played due to the drinking game in effect and my friend had to help her to the bathroom.

Is it normal for BTMI! to play "So Let's Go Nowhere" by ASOB because I loving flipped out when they did.

gently caress the mellophone, sounds nothing like the horn and takes a totally different technique to play.

As far as I know, the dates in April are part of a small little stint in the US. The band plans on doing a full-blown US tour later in the year.

If the album were originals we wouldn't see a release until 2011 at least, if Somewhere in the Between is any indicator.

Although I don't like to admit it, I like Vampire Weekend and that cover is alright though the vocals could be livelier.

I only think Hello Rockview is alright compared to Losing Streak.

Losing Streak has a lot of really great songs but Hello Rockview is awesome from start to finish.

That's interesting, because I feel that way too, just reverse the albums. All the instruments on Hello Rockview sound really weird too, especially the clangy guitar during the clean parts.

The Reel Big Fish cover was actually a pretty straightforward cover of this version that Op Ivy recorded.

Gangsters by The Specials is a reworked cover of Al Capone by Prince Buster. Guns of Navarone is a Skatalites cover, too.

It's really cool seeing them play 30 years later and they still sound great, but I'm still not sure how I feel about them getting back together without Jerry Dammers. It's kinda like the Dead Kennedys touring without Jello Biafra.

Well okay, I guess it's not as bad as that, but they're still going around playing someone else's songs.

I'm sorry to have to break it to this thread but BTMI is pretty awful.


Suicide Machines didn't even start being really good until they recorded A Match and Some Gasoline, when their lyrics actually started carrying some meaning. The songwriting on Album Minus Band is superb from the beginning.

We just had this discussion a few pages ago and Losing Steak is the best album because it doesn't sound like the instruments were filtered through a tin can. I think Losing Streak works better as a whole album with an overarching theme, whereas Hello Rockview sounds like a collection of songs.

Bomb the Music Industry just announced the dates for their summer tour the other day, it's on their tumblr page. I'll definitely be going to the Cleveland date.

I'm wondering if I can ever wash this without all the paint coming off.

On the other hand, a shirt I got last year almost completely faded when I washed it the first time, so it's pretty much done by feel if you can wash it.

The Cleveland show was a lot of fun though. The turnout was way bigger than when I saw them in Covington last year and everyone seemed generally more into all of the music.

The set, to my memory, went something like this:

Congratulations John
Saddr Weirdr
Slumlord
Pizza Claus
Freebird
All Ages Shows/Big Ending/The First Time I Met Sanawon
Fresh Attitude, Young Body
25
Side Projects
Sort of Like Being Pumped
I Don't Love You Anymore

I know I'm missing at least one song here, so feel free to correct me.

It's a two hour drive one way for me to see a ska show anymore.

Tell me about it, I've gotten used to having to drive 3 hours to Cleveland anytime I want to see a decent band play, except for the one time BTMI! played in my hometown (Dayton) about 2 years ago. I'm going to have to drive to Detroit to see Godspeed You! Black Emperor in March, so I hope it'll be worth it.

Sublime with Rome and 311 must have realized they were splitting their fan base, because they decided to tour together this summer.

I saw a flyer for that tour at my school in Ohio and thought, 'That is the dream show for dudebros.'

I don't know, Jeff played Savers during his last iPod tour and I was pretty stoked on it. I'm going to reserve judgement 'til the full thing comes out.
