power pop * punk * emo * indie rock * shoegazer
A bold statement, but, damn, they were great to watch live that year. Nice pick for this week!
Indeed. But I've always hated that album cover because it sort of presented them as a boy band, and I think they kind of felt the same after the fact, esp. as that genre was quickly marketed to high school kids. Remember, folks, just because you're trying to be ironic doesn't mean people will pick up on the joke.
Oh God, I hope not. But the bar was pretty low that year.
Yep, I also went to a few really fun STD shows around 99. Thanks for this!
Disagree, best album of 1999 was The New Parade by the Sheila Divine
Yeah, I gotta give 'em credit, they did a good job not trying to go teen emo, touring with Grandaddy, Fire Theft, Rocket From The Crypt--seems like they saw the dangers up ahead. of course it didn't help them when they did try the major label route, but it is what it is, ya know?
