more 90s tunes

Posted in Music News, Music Videos, Song Of The Day on December 15th, 2016 by corpo

I saw Babes In Toyland in Minneapolis at Lolla Palooza in 1993. It was awesome. They are from Minneapolis, so it was pretty epic to see a somewhat smaller band get so much love on the big stage.

The most famous of the girl grunge bands. L7 rules. Their next album Bricks Are Heavy was huge and a great excuse to play loud annoying grunge music when girls were around.

Tad was not my favorite, a little to rough for me, but this mellower song of theirs is great.

Time to get a little later in the 90s when slacker music ruled the world. Archers opening for Weezer (original blue album tour) was one of the best shows I’ve seen.

To find new music I used to record MTV’s 120 minutes every Sunday night. On Monday I would go through the show and hope to find new bands I liked. This video came on once and I immediately went to the record store to buy it. Treepeople is one of my all time favorite bands and at the top of my list for bands I wish I had seen live.

Pavement Ist rad. This band was huge. Everyone enjoyed Pavement. As a side note, they are way better live now then they were back in the day.

I wanted to pick a different Superchunk song, but the fact is this song is one of the greatest songs ever made.

Nirvana is of course the quintessential 90s band. And for good reason, they absolutely ruled. My brother paid $35 for the Hormoaning cd and we popped it in on the way up to Minneapolis to go look at new snowboards. We were so blown away by this song that we started moshing in the car. Ha. Oh to be young again.

If you make it through this song please let me know.

Okay, gotta end it with the greatest band of all time. This song was released in the 80s, but still played throughout the 90s. This band basically changed my life and turned me into who I am. They are still my favorite. I love how su

SEBADOH / Quasi at the Larimer Lounge, Denver Feb 15, 2011

Posted in Concert Reviews on February 17th, 2011 by corpo

One night after seeing a show filled with under 20 year old hipsters I found myself going to see Sebadoh – a 90s indie rock icon.  The crew was Ric, Brian, Maria, John, Zach and I and the place was filled with other aging indie rock nerds.  Quasi opened and they were awesome.  I enjoyed them more when the singer would play guitar, but they were good when he was on piano too.  Well, what’s left of the piano after he kicked it a bunch on the last song.Sebadoh was spectacular.  Click the photo above to go to Reverb magazine for more cool photos and big words describing how radical the show was.  On top of playing great musically they also proved that they are still socially awkward when interacting with the crowd.  Especially Jason.  That guy is crazy.  I love it!  Anyways it looks like they’re basically playing the same setlist every night and I found this one from Seattle’s show:

  • 1 Intro
  • 2 On Fire
  • 3 Dreams
  • 4 Too Pure
  • 5 Soul and Fire
  • 6 Sister
  • 7 Shit Soup
  • 8 Mind Reader
  • 9 Got It
  • 10 I Love To Fight
  • 11 Drag Down
  • 12 Magnets Coil
  • 13 Ocean
  • 14 Skull
  • 15 Rebound
  • 16 License to Confuse
  • 17 Drama Mine
  • 18 Nothing Like You
  • 19 Crystal Gypsy
  • 20 Careful
  • 21 Beauty of the Ride
  • 22 Not a Friend
  • 23 Together or Alone
  • 24 Forced Love
  • 25 Sixteen
  • 26 Give Up
  • 27 Junk Bonds
  • 28 New Worship
  • 29 Brand New Love
  • 30 Worst Thing
  • 31 Not Too Amused
  • 32 Willing to Wait

John gets the nerd award having successfully guessed the first song and was able to name the most tunes after hearing only the first note of the song.  Brian and Maria left early.  Ric almost puked in my car.  Zach used to make fun of me for liking indie rock instead of just punk rock.  They were charging $20 for a one color t-shirt and Lou was proud of it.  Some dork got called out for the first Dinosaur Jr request of the tour (and no it wasn’t me come on I know they wouldn’t be able to play it good anyways ha). All in all a fun night and they must have played good because I’ve been listening to Sebadoh ever since.Looks like there is lots of youtube clips of the show.
