"Didn't we deserve a look at you..." is particulalry fantastic and with the shorter punchier songs like Copper etc it just edges it for me. I have to admit that I don't actually own At Action Park and I also thought that their last record was quite weak.

Seeing them everyday at the ATP they curated was awesome though - easily the best thing every day. Marvellous!
I was at that ATP, as was Nim Chimpsky. Marvellous indeed.

Yeah, Excellent Italian Greyhound is not up to scratch IMO. Even strong songs like "The End Of Radio" don't seem to come off well. Get At Action Park though, and the early singles are a must.

I think The Cold Vein would get the nod as my favourite hip-hop record I own (and there are woefully few of them..) over King Geedorah but they're both great records. I'd like to have put something by Missy Elliott in but her records are always a little inconsistent for my liking.

I feel as if my list is a bit 'white' and male centred - shame on me... a distinct lack of anything jazzy or global too. Too many records so little time and money!

I shall try and track down some more Shellac as well. And, Alastair, I was very excited about your inclusion of 'Gun' by John Cale in the 'songs you've had on for the last ten times...or whatever it's called' thread I love that album. Only very recently taken the plunge into his solo back catalogue - Ship of Fools is my particular favourite song. Beautiful!

Glad nobody is voicing that they think my list sucks!

Cheers!

Agreed. One thing I didn't get about this album is the running order. 'The End Of Radio' should so obviously be the last song on the album. The clue's in the title boys.

Apologies for wandering off topic, but I just found the other day the sample that and a Tra La La is made from, it's from a recording of one of John Cage's String Quartets :o

I started work on a top 100 list the other day and only managed to get to about 60 before starting to go mad. Contrary to popular opinion, I put Excellent Italian Greyhound on it.

Hmm, very interesting. I always assumed it was just one of his own compositions - wsn't there a short 'un-tweaked' version on a Bitstreams compilation once or am I mistaken?

And I think you should post your 60 favourite records - sounds like it'll be interesting if you're including Excellent Italian Greyhound...!

What mister Warburton said!
I found it ages ago while first starting to nose around in noisy things. I will never forget that day.
My visiting friends looked genuinely scared.

But uhm.. the drumming on some of the first albums by the non-typo bandname is uhm... and the beards? I'll shut up now.

nice to read the love for shellac

get At Action Park indeed - as a whole I think that's still the strongest album, but it's a hard pick, since both terraform & 1000 hurts have incredible songs too. one way or the other, there should be a shellac album on my 10 desert island album list. in retrospect italian greyhound is a weak album, but I enjoyed it tremendously when it came out.
also, as a lyricist, albini is smashing.

a couple of the songs off of that are up there with my all-time favorites... the title track and "your pussy is glued to a building on fire" and the first song is pretty brutal too. i think i heard he's re-releasing that and niandra lades finally.

Pardon the dumb question [I'm behind on current stuff], but is Shellac anything like Rapeman or Scratch Acid?

More like Rapeman than Scratch Acid (funnily enough). More space than Rapeman though (not difficult).

In regards to Shellac, At Action Park is easily the best IMO. But actually the best music that band ever created was the first two 7"s that came out before that album, especially Doris/Wingwalker.

Wow, Gul 3! I was just talking about them elsewhere, comparing the quieter sections of a Happy Apple concert I just saw to what they do. Truncated, reductive, discrete, but soulful. Though I do like both Gul 3 albums, I think I prefer Singlar actually.

cool list!
