Hello friends! It’s yer ol’ da’ Severed799 today in the host seat this week! Very excited to be hosting one of these I must say…
Love’s seminal classic Forever Changes slots right in the middle in a celebratory thread for all-round good guy @Funkhouser
After much internal debate, I ended up picking the album @JohnM predicted I would, partly due to @anon50098204 's completely valid reasoning that it would be nice to do a thread on a band who haven’t (and won’t, beyond me hijacking the Fugazi thread for a bit that time) and also as @Murder suggested, I’m really interested to find out what people’s reactions to this is going to be and the opportunity to share a massively underrated record with you all was too good to pass up. While I’m sure Either/Or, Madvillainy, Cosmogramma and The Midnight Organ Fight would have all been great entries, I’m fairly certain they’ll all get their day in this wonderful thread series (I aslo got the tip-off from the big man about the last one so didn’t want to conflict schedules!) Also, tbqfh, it wouldn’t really be a fair reflection of my brand if I didn’t choose some big epic post-hardcore record so really Unwound won the real quiz vs Fugazi and Fucked Up. Also the weather was atrocious this morning and I’ve barely slept, which is pretty much the perfect mood for this album
So here we go, happy listening and how good is Unwound’s swan song Leaves Turn Inside You really?
