L7 “Best of the Slash Years” 2000/2019 reissue, limited edition on green vinyl. This comp of hard-rocking, grungy punk/alt-metal songs pulls tracks from L7′s three albums on Slash Records: Bricks are Heavy (’92, produced by Butch Vig), Hungry for Stink (’94) and The Beauty Process: Triple Platinum (’97). It starts out with one of the greatest riot grrrl anthems ever, “Pretend We’re Dead,” from Bricks are Heavy which went to #8 on the US Modern Rock Tracks chart in ‘92 and hit #21 on the UK singles chart. Also from Bricks are Heavy are “Mr. Integrity,” “Monster” and “Everglade.”  I love Hungry for Stink and pulled from that LP are “Andres” (#20 US Alternative Songs chart and #34 UK singles chart), one of my favorites “Fuel My Fire” as well as “Freak Magnet” and “Can I Run.” I’m not as familiar with The Beauty Process – I’m not sure we have it in our collection – but the tracks from that album are almost as brutal, a tad more melodic than L7′s earlier work and also a bit heavy on the drinking theme: “Bad Things,” “Off the Wagon,” “Moonshine” and “Bitter Wine” (OK, “Moonshine” isn’t actually about the contraband liquor but the titles’ trajectory does work nicely for a boozing narrative).

Time to metal.
My first high school sweetheart was pretty hippy dippy. One time she hired the services of a clairvoyant, a “real” one.. He told me I would grow out of this heavy metal.  He’s probably dead now, and wrong.
Dead wrong.

Dinosaur Jr.

  • Bug (1988)
  • Farm (2009)

Added a few essentials to my Dinosaur Jr. stacks.  Much like the Melvins, any project which includes J. Mascis is consistently good.  Whether with Dino Jr., Witch or SweetApple, there are no real lulls in the catalog.  On the label side of things, I’m grateful that labels like Jagjaguwar exist.  They have nailed the art of providing a nice sounding, well pressed and solidly packaged vinyl lp, at a very reasonable price point.  From a quality vs. cost perspective, they hit the sweet spot.  
Now to work on that Witch catalog…
