I've only ever heard Rock Lobster and Love Shack.

Do these guys have any other great songs worth checking out?

thread reminds me to check that mid-2000s-ish album they put out as a direct response to how good Get Ready by New Order was

surely that one's got at least a coupla bangerz

Since Elph likes post-punk so much he should check out post-grunge. I'm sure he'd love Nickelback and Creed

This is prolly my fav. but they've got a sneaky back catalog from their early days that is eye opening.


I got a best hits CD from them recently and forgot how much they rocked. It's always good to know you don't have to play through a Diesel at 120dbs and have a cliche'd angry singer to get the desired effect:

How bout the blue's on the guitarist? And the leet move taking out the middle strings on his guitar. Very alternative in a time the term wasn't even used back then for stuff like that.

Roam is pretty bad ass. Try to not let this tune squat in your head for hours on end.

a guilty pleasure hidden gem of the 80's...and what's not to love for a song about Counterfeiting.

I used to say "Chinese Noodles" over and over in my head trying to get it just the way she said it...honestly that is some kind of English perfection there, the way she says that. It sort of epitomises everything that is beautiful about the English language to me, somehow.

World's gone loco. There's a deep state civil war going on that's about to go hot in the streets. It's time for the B-52's:

Apparently, "Love Shack" was a 20 to 30 minute jam they'd do to warm up at rehearsals, before a producer heard it and convinced them to turn the best bits into the song we now know and love

Wonder if there are any recordings of the original jam in existence, circulation, etc
