Maybe subconsciously I've been trying to convince myself this week that the '90's didn't suck for music -- with some obvious exceptions, of course. I've been surprised to see that much of this week's grabs from the stacks have been mid-90's releases much to my chagrin. I really loathed THEN and STILL despise much of that college/alternative rock that permeated the 90's. (REM - I'm looking right at f'n YOU.) But there were highlights -- the releases from Jellyfish, Suede, Supergrass, Crowded House, Grant Lee Buffalo come to mind, as does yea - Nirvana and reluctantly Oasis. This Grays release, '94's "Ro Sham Bo," brings together Jason Falkner from Jellyfish and LA studio whiz Jon Brion into one hell of a pop group -- produced by Jack Joseph Puig who engineered the two Jellyfish releases (among many others) and who was also behind the board for yesterday's Fabulon LP. Nice stuff here for your Friday...
The Grays - Same Thing (Mp3)
The Grays - Not Long For This World (Mp3)
The Grays - Nothing Between Us (Mp3)
The Grays - No One Can Hurt Me (Mp3)
The Grays - Spooky (Mp3)
And speaking of the '90's -- who did I leave off that quick list? Who merits inclusion to debunk TVD's "The '90's Sucked" ethos?
