(Okay, Caravan is prog, so I’m lying there, but otherwise, this is fairly accurate.)

Death Cab For Cutie, We Have the Facts and We’re Voting Yes

Liars, They Threw Us in a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top

Two Dollar Guitar, Weak Beats & Lame-Ass Rhymes

Caravan, If I Could Do it All Over Again, I’d Do it All Over You

Butthole Surfers, Widowermaker! EP (actually, I could fill this list with nothing but Buttholes records)

Magnetophone, I Guess Sometimes I Need to Be Reminded of How Much You Love Me

Spacemen 3, Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To

Big Black, The Rich Man’s Eight Track Tape

Pussy Galore, Dial M for Motherfucker

Dead Milkmen, Bucky Fellini

    I think the Big Black album Songs About Fucking would have made a much more to-the-point entry to the list. Rich Man’s 8-Track isn’t even an album.

  • Billy No Mates

    “Trouble Over Bridgwater” (Half Man Half Biscuit)

  • This fear of prog… Everyone needs a little 11/8 mellotron excess in their lives. But Caravan’s “If I Could Do it All Over Again, I’d Do it All Over You” is from their earlier days when they still had plenty of quaint rural psychedelic charm and bombastic organ riffage was kept in check.

    N, I agree about this overreaction against “prog” – you must pick and choose like anything else, but there is much greatness to be found amongst the bombast. I think you hit the nail on the head that the presence of phychedelia is a leavening agent, hadn’t quite thought of it that way before.

    Caravan has several albums I like and one I love: “Blind Dog at St. Dunstans” (or something close to that). “If I Had to Do It” isn’t even their best title – that’s “Cunning Stunts”
