Superb. I wish we talked about them more on BCB, I've tried to start threads on them in the past but only Skope was a fan. Some highlights...





Amazing production..




And my favourite..

Loved 'em then. Went off 'em for ages but back on board now.

I think Nevermind is a great Rock record. In Utero is a bit too angsty these days but some of it is ferociously good

I love this footage, particularly the Denmark Street scenes.

This is an amazing track. I love the way it starts as this smooth, sophisticated euro-ballad before launching into the blaring chorus.

I love that abrasive solo towards the end.

Ditto. I thought I was past my loving a band phase, but I totally bought into them and love everything they did.

The last band I truly loved.

After that I was too old to really care about the angsty musings of twenty-somethings.

I can only listen to Bleach and parts of Incesticide now.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

They were the real thing, and they should never have become as popular as they did. That stuff is too REAL for most little kids to handle.
