I can rarely get past the first couple tracks on the s/t. :(

AMANITA
LAPSED
SET AND SETTING

I guess this was my Bardo Pond era, got to be one of those three (though I might take either Hash Jar Tempo above any of these), but I'll admit I haven't heard all the others. So this poll is going to be helpful to let me know which need going back to.

Exactly the same as 'a passing spacecadet' really, haven't heard anything from Ticket Crystals on. Voting confidently for Lapsed, what a beast!

La descente infernale (Le Bateau Ivre), Sunday, 13 February 2011 23:59 (six years ago) Permalink

Kinda wish I could vote for a live-in-concert option...

Ned Raggett, Monday, 14 February 2011 00:01 (six years ago) Permalink

if they could capture on record what they do on stage, that would be my pick too. isobel (and her flute) works better for me in person, for sure, riding that sound they build

reggie (qualmsley), Monday, 14 February 2011 00:18 (six years ago) Permalink

They haven't toured the West coast in forever, considering I got into them big-time circa Dilate and still have never seen them.

My fav era starts with Set up till On The Ellipse, I've kept up with the main albums as much as I can, but they've have felt very hit/miss for me. I like Circuit VIII a LOT, though, since it's very much from the Set/Lapsed era psycho-crunch.

Amanita will likely always be my favorite Bardo Pond album. It was in the right place at the right time.

Trip Maker, Monday, 14 February 2011 03:02 (six years ago) Permalink

Hey that's pretty much what I was going to say! But Amen 29:15 deserves some respect for being monumental.

stately wang manner (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Monday, 14 February 2011 03:09 (six years ago) Permalink

This is impossible.
I love this band so so so so much. I've seen them live maybe a half-dozen times. I love them. I haven't even heard all of these records due to my format prejudice, but i have never heard a bad record by this band.

BIG LAUGHING JYM

I have literally never seen a copy of this. Reissue time.

stately wang manner (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Monday, 14 February 2011 03:18 (six years ago) Permalink

It was the first Bardo album I owned! Pretty lowfi iirc.

adam, Monday, 14 February 2011 04:53 (six years ago) Permalink

I have BLJ. (It's OOP? Explains why there's a new copy going for $50 on Amazon (used for $9 though).) Except for "Dragonfly," not much memorable on it.

I'd vote for the "LSD POND" thing they did with LSD March if I could.

ryan, Sunday, 20 February 2011 00:20 (six years ago) Permalink

not going to vote because I haven't heard many of these, but Ticket Crystals was what stuck with me. the only one I still play with any regularity. haven't been able to get into the s/t either.

rockapads, Sunday, 20 February 2011 02:32 (six years ago) Permalink

Leaving aside the early cassettes, I've heard ALL but 2-4 of these. (Also own LSD Pond, and a fistful of side/affiliated projects.)

Asparagus Peee (Leee), Sunday, 20 February 2011 02:45 (six years ago) Permalink

oh man just saw this poll

gotta go dilate as hearing "two planes" as my first bardo pond tune just totally did my head in, instant fan for life. agree the hash jar tempo and lsd pond releases are worthy & missing. likewise w/ the tom carter collaborative live thing. used to have the prairie dog flesh, vapour theories, 500mg stuff too but then sold it. i think i had like 25+ bardo things on my shelf. went a bit overboard there for a while!

Makes sense to go overboard with Bardo, hah. You got me beat, too: I only have 19 Bardo-related things on my shelf.

There's no Cypher Documents either, and that's straight up real Bardo. :(

if music be the fuiud of love then piss off (Drugs A. Money), Tuesday, 22 February 2011 23:48 (six years ago) Permalink

i did. i don't know their catalogue real well—a couple-few of the late-90s ones that i heard then (ok) or revisited in recent years (to better effect), recent ones like 'peri' that i enjoyed a lot, and the new one. they've always struck me as pretty awesome when they're awesome and not-quite-heavy-or-messed-up-enough when not, a little inconsistent at what i was getting from them, but lately they've been more satisfying to me and the new one seemed to really hit a zone even on the kinds of songs i would have been impatient with in the past.

i think it's partly a drums and bass thing—have they sorted out their rhythm section a little better now?

j., Wednesday, 23 February 2011 02:46 (six years ago) Permalink

sounds like i rly need to hear the new one!

And as you might figure from the name, it's a collab with AMT, which, unless I'm mistaken, is the first time they've collabed?
