Only heard bits and pieces of some of this stuff. A lot of it sounds interesting and I probably should take note of a bunch of it for future reference.
I remember liking Blank Generation but it was slower than I expected from what I remember too.
I remember liking the loud trashy brash sound of that Heartbreakers album.
I like that hard in your face hardcore punk occasionally. I remember TSOL ruling as far as that goes.
The Damned I've always been meaning to hear for years. Are they on the same order as The Clash? Not even sure what exactly they sound like and people don't mention them all THAT much, yet they are pretty legendary as far as I know.
Pere Ubu is super interesting and seems pretty unique so I gotta hear those first few albums too. And Rocket From The Tombs which no one ever mentions either! Isn't that totally one of the first punk bands of all time?
I like the sound of that first Raincoats album quite a bit. I first heard of them from Kurt Cobain praising that album so much and I can see why he loved it. Its one of those cool sounding albums that I only go back to once in awhile. Guess I need to hear that 2nd album.
That "Only You" song I just discovered a bit over 10 years ago and it is a great one. The album sounds cool. Kinda like finding albums with some weird bizarre experimental piece put on it for no apparant reason.
Guided By Voices have a ton of great songs but they're a band I jump to different various songs from different albums. "Teenage FBI" is totally one of the best songs ever.
