  1. “I think you should shut the fuck up and play more music.”
    Consolidated !!! The dog’s bollocks. Fab album. I actually have some Consolidated postcards somewhere… For the ‘Dropped’ album methinks… Nice guys, great music, deserved more success and recognition. They even had Barbara Kruger artwork for one of their albums ferrrchirssssakes!

  2. Completely agree that 9.99 is Vega’s best and glad that you didn’t let Mrs Robinson detract you from including It’s a shame about Ray. So many great songs on that LP.

    1. Ack…is it all mean to suggest that every subsequent Lemonheads album should have been called ‘It’s A Shame About Evan’? Because that’s how it feels sometimes – a songwriter of such obvious fuzzy talent, who headed off down some slacker rock cul-de-sac of his own making.

      1. Perhaps mean but very true. He came off the rails a bit after Hatfield let the band and the quality became spotty, kind of like Richard Ashcroft without Nick McCabe.

  3. Quite pleased you included Wish after all. Though not the easiest to listen to in one sitting, it still contains several of my favorite Cure tracks and you’ll find me 9 times out of 10 choosing it over its shinier siblings. Nice mention of Julian Cope and Curve also!
