Superchunk


#1

#2

Hell yes.
Hoping for some uk & Ireland shows.


#3

I own both On the Mouth and Foolish on CD and have never listened to either, though I have been assured that I will love Superchunk. Probably should get around to listening to them.


#4

I love Superchunk


#5

Your recommendation is all I need Ruffdawg.


#6

I think they’re one of those bands who have lots of good songs but not consistently solid albums. The exception being No Pocky for Kitty which is bloody great. I have never seen them but would very much like to.


#7

Really like majesty shredding too


#8

Probably best to start with these 3:
Tossing Seeds (early singles comp)
No Pocky For Kitty
Majesty Shredding


#9

Good


Really good


#10

Oh, and great fun live too.


#11

I absolutely loved Majesty Shredding when that came out (how was that 7 years ago?), but haven’t listened to anything else they released. Will probably give this new one a go.


#12

Love that singles comp

<3


#13

I feel this. I’ve actually listened to a fair bit of Superchunk, but never properly listened to them, if you know what I mean? I know that I like them but just can’t be bothered listening to their albums all the way through for some reason.

Slack Motherfucker

Majesty Shredding’s really good, also really liked I Hate Music. Of the early ones I’ve only heard No Pocky For Kitty (good) and Here’s Where The Strings Come In (patchy). Saw them at Primavera a few years ago and they were wonderful.

The Mac McCaughan solo record was really nice too actually.

(in case you thought I was just being mean)


#17

He also recorded under the name Portastatic in the 90’s. The first album is very good but I haven’t heard any of the others. He was part of the initial line-up of Seam too and played on their first album Headsparks (which is ace).


#18

Not sure how easy it is to get hold of these days, but their self-titled first album is absolutely fantastic. After that it’s probably ‘On The Mouth’ for me. ‘No Pocky for Kitty’ is good, but they’re all three-minute punk songs and their better albums were much more than that.


#19

Fucking hell though, being 17 and hearing Superchunk’s first album. Might have to go off and listen to it now.


#20

They are probably my two favourite LPs by Superchunk - if you don’t like these you probably can leave the rest…they are great though so hope you find something
