Favorite Thing! Fabulous choice, one of the great guitar performances.

Thanks, yeah the guitar's great, and so is "Bar nothing!!"

And I love the part where he goes "[unintelligible]" around 1:32.

Was in Minneapolis last month and saw the house where they're all on the roof and other Mats sites.

You would say that, G. Outside your general comfort zone, your views on some "harder" types of music are narrower than your teenage stovepipe pants.

He hates it when people say things like that, but I remain convinced that he had a nasty experience with a guitar amp some time around 1983 and has ever since refused to listen to anything louder than Supergrass.

Anything louder than an ironic bossa-nova Supergrass tribute act, actually. ;)

Punk wasn't needed in 1986. It was backward looking and reactionary. And was dismissed as such.
Let's be honest if half the frat boy mid 80s US punk that is being extolled on here had been released by GBH or Anti Nowhere League a few years before then you lot wouldn't be interested in it.

I'm with G. He's much more clear-eyed than most of you when it comes to this stuff.

I’m fascinated to learn about this frat boy punk from the 80s!
