View Full Version : Buddyhead Best and Worst of 2002

Great article I especially liked this bit in the worst of 2002:

Honorable Mention: Any record put out by any band from Sweden
Has anybody else had it with all the hugely mediocre Swedish bands jabbering on and on about revolutions, their clothes, and how they are changing rock n' roll? Every one of them has the same pre-recorded robotic shtick, and it's beyond irritating. What they forgot to tell you is that they get paid by the Swedish government to be in bands that rape and pillage the back catalogs of popular and obscure bands from the 50's and 60's. Yeah, a bunch of hockey loving, incestuous dipshits ripping off James Brown who have seen about as many black people in their sheltered little snow day lives as we've seen green men from Mars. Their culture is so wanna-be American, they've completely stolen Canada's thunder. Australia is pissed too. And there's no end in sight, cos instead of having to struggle in poverty for years to pay their dues like bands in the rest of the world, these crackers are out of the gates in hordes before you can blink with half of guitar center in their plush vans, and into our country trying to tell us what time it is. So shut the fuck up, and stuff some more meatballs into that lard ass with the mustache's mouth so he'll be too preoccupied gorging himself to subject us to his face on our TV's ever again

Sweden is cool. Buddyhead, like, sucks.

I kind of like the way they have such a militant attitude to what's good and what sucks, even if I often don't agree with them. It's hillarious sometimes.

Should we adopt that as our official Counterglow review policy? Or for LWP4!

I thought that was your policy, but without the humour? :D

I own four of their "worst albums" and intend to purchase another three of them... :)

You mean, "the humour".

i don't necessarily agree with it all (or indeed any of it) but they have a great attitude

They blow their credibility by lauding Tom Petty and Coldplay.

Then they partially redeem themselves with that Vines review.

yes, i was particularly thinking of the vines review :D

Does anyone own more of their "worst albums" than I do?

Yes, if you count "any record put out by any band from Sweden".

Laz, they laud Coldplay in an accurate way though:

Coldplay - A Rush Of Blood To The Head
Yeah, we like Coldplay, so what? Being into Coldplay is like banging that fat chick next door, or having an uncle that doesn't like minorities... it's just not something you go out of your way to publicize.
