rhino box set: "left of the dial"

Postby nobodygirl » Tue Dec 07, 2004 3:14 pm

(Alternate thread title: Someone please buy me this for Kwanzaa, y'all!)
The reference to "Ana Ng" in another thread is what made me think of this. For reals. My only problem with it is that a) "Left Of The Dial" does not actually seem to be included on it and b) now I have "Left Of The Dial" in my head and have no access to it at the moment. Rgh.

Nice selection of 80's alt pop/rock. Could have used some Husker Du and the aforementioned Mats, and maybe some Robyn Hitchcock.

Still, pretty good - any 80's comp that includes Prefab Sprout is ok by me!

Wow, that list of tracks is the soundtrack to my adolensence, and a nice sample of my forever lost cassette tape collection.

Here's a question for you all, how many of the bands listed on that track list can you name as groups you've seen perform live? Let's see how old school you folks are! Solo members of these bands don't count, and you can't count "reunion shows", like this year's Pixies tour. Back in the day shows only!!

my list:

Billy Bragg
Butthole Surfers
Cocteau Twins
Suicidal Tendencies
Campervan Beethovan
Janes Addiction
Siouxie And the Banshees
The The
PIL
The Church
Love and Rockets
Psychedelic Furs
They Might Be Giants
The Sugarcubes
Meat Puppets
OMD
Ministry
The Pretenders
Dinosaur Jr
Wall of Voodoo
Husker Du
New Order
Depeche Mode
The Jesus and Mary Chain
The Cure
REM

Holy crap, do you have a trust fund or is this an accumulation? I don't know whether it's my poverty or my relative, dewy youth but I think the only one I can claim is REM. And when I saw them they were teetering on the precipice of their current incarnation, Sad Old Men Who Play Stadiums.

No, they sounded terrible on that tour. Between that and New Adventures in Hi-Fi, I was kind off R.E.M. after that. Which is sad, because Monster was almost as important to me as Achtung Baby (at least at the time).
