how on earth????

Post by Canucker » Sat Jun 09, 2012 1:16 pm

how on earth did these guys ever get signed? Everything I've read about them made them out to be a complete mess. Musically sure its all there but if a band like this came out today nobody would touch em.....but thats just getting into a "today everything sucks and is so calculated" convo.

They got signed the same way Mudhoney got signed...they had a following and someone in the industry "got it" and was like "we gotta sign these guys". That's what I think anyway.

I like em...I just can't picture a time when one business guy says "this is what we're gonna go ahead with" and then the powers that be at his company allow it. Must have been a hectic day at the office and people didn't read what they were approving.

I always thunk that "Pepper" just a complete rehash of Beck's "Loser".

Hahaha, I was just thinking that the other day, and never realized before how they sounded similar.

Who was in My Room Last Night? is a great song. It's even much better than the rock music of today.

You wanna know how they got signed?

They are hail and live in Austin. Over there it's the weirder the better.
