Hit Or Shit J&MC Version

Postby Still Baron » 25 Jan 2020, 23:47

This was a single from 1992's Honey's Dead. Both are very . . . 1992.
I could go either way, really.

There were quite a few of these plasticised sounding noise-singles around...Ultra Vivid Scene, Spacemen, Jesus Jones.... I was underwhelmed by Honey's Dead at the time of release but now I tolerate it a whole lot more.

Its bobbins, of course, but I like it. We saw them on that tour and I can remember it being one of the loudest gigs I had been to at that point, including MBV.

I saw them with MBV at that time (their Rollercoaster package tour thing, also including Dinosaur Jr and Blur).

It was certainly fucking load. I remember Japanese girls (there seemed to be a lot of them about in those days at those sorts of events) running for the exits ears covered. Although that might have been for MBV's infamous Apocalypse interlude rather than the J&MC.

being a bit of a gear nerd I was very impressed by WIlliam Reed's variable tremolo pedal - it really cut through.


Blur were shit of course.

I haven't heard this tune in a long time and I reckon it's great. You can hear a definte MBV influence there with hindsight.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

Perfectly acceptable background noise for edgy dance clubs in 1992, I suppose.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

I always think of them as a lightweight Suicide.

Having said that, I really like them. I can't listen to a whole album but, one song at a time, I find them quite exciting and poppy.

Mind you, it could have been almost any other of there songs and I think I'd have had the same reaction.
Bugger off.
