Bands that are better than slint: rodan, June of 44, shipping news, Indian summer
Obviously not an exhaustive list
In the category of being a reference to use for scoring indie points, yes.
So not the Smashing Pumpkins, glad we’ve settled that.
(Seriously though, thanks for the names, I think I’ve only heard June of 44 off that list).
The slint like bands that are better than slint tangent thread
Though i kinda get your point I wouldn’t categorise skint as emo like these bands
out of those probably only indian summer are emo?
Saint Billy (<-this is a joke)
reckon d’arcy should join pavement
Given emo seems to have 3 waves and they are all different who knows?
yeah but I don’t think any of those bands, except indian summer, would fit into any wave of emo
Full blown yes, but they all have elements of it
“God, what a mess/ On the ladder of success”
One of the great opening lines.
Out on tour with one quarter of the core nineties line up of Smashing Pumpkins
Yeah, its a banger. Love the ending & the fucked SNL performance
Today in smashing pumpkins history debut album Gish was released on this day in 1991
I am twenty-seven as you are twenty-nine
Can’t believe it’s been Gish month for 19 years.
Just want to say the new Stephen Malkmus is actually pretty good, I think I might like it more than all post-Crooked Rain Crooked Rain Pavement (not sure yet). The Future Embrace and Ogilala are better though. I still think that if Billy released it, it would be called total shit.
