ha me too, was about to write something snotty about how any label would be lucky to have that many great bands over the course of a decade.

lol, sorry, they're all great! but so are the leaving trains, meat pups, opal, etc. figure they're probably going in stages, according to demand.

which Saccharine Trust album should I listen to first?

They're a band of two halves - the first two (PaganIcons, Surviving You Always) are arty hardcore, the latter with a different and jazzier rhythm section. It's my favourite. The later ones (Worldbroken, We Became Snakes) are more jazz fusion style, the former being an improv live album. Still good (and a precursor to Universal Congress Of) but a different beast.

Am giving We Became Snakes a go, it's pretty unlike most other SST stuff I've heard, with the possible exception of the jazzier end of the Minutemen.

Not surprising, since Mike Watt produced that one!

A Human Certainty from Paganicons is the obvious 'hit', i reckon. great guitar sounds.

Saccharine Trust's "Surviving You Always" is the great lost SST record, lost becuz as noted above it never was issued on cd and the label let it go out of print. The smartest decision I ever made was when I bought the whole ST collection sight-unheard in one fell swoope from my local record store. If you can find it, listen to this one first.

They are probably my favorite SST band and that's saying something. I love all four (and the live reocrd) for different reasons. Still at too, the album from 2001, "The Great One is Dead" is awesome and equally the level of their other records.

1 year passes...

Just got email saying that Wienerworld are rereleasing a bunch of prime SST stuff (Husker Du, Flag, Brains) on vinyl. Weird. Pretty sure that the bands involved won't see any money from this...

media conglomerates are pedaling the same product (stevie), Tuesday, 28 May 2013 13:31 (10 months ago) Permalink

That's especially weird since Husker Du & Black Flag have hardly ever been out of print on SST vinyl... in fact I just bought Flip Your Wig brand new a few weeks ago

Yeah I just looked at their website and they are just selling SST records.

Wienerworld?

Just looked at the SST website to see what vinyl they're selling and both Negativland SST albums are still in print. Are they big sellers or something? Slightly surprised me because most of the rest of the stuff was Black Flag, Huskers, firehose, Minutemen, Saint Vitus, Soundgarden etc and not much of the quirky less well-known stuff.

I don't know what Wienerworld is, but it makes me think of the Austrian/German fast-food chain, Wienerwald

I'd never heard of Wienerworld before either. I just have amazing powers of google.

I would think Escape From Noise would be a super good perennial for them.

My copy of the Incredible String Band movie "Be Glad for the Song has no Ending" is a Wienerworld DVD.

It's just an awful name. The denizens of Wienerworld have very good taste, but they have to tell people they work at Wienerworld.

I just went to their website and
1) lol nice logo

I was pretty fond of the Kira/Mike Watt bass duo album Dos (criminally unmentioned this thread).

A less muso Hugo Largo, more or less.

Listening to fIREHOSE for the first time in a million years. I got a bit fed up with their albums somewhere along the way, but Ragin' Full On is so good. Obviously they were always going to be underpowered in comparison to D Boon's stun guitar attack, but there's so many moments where everything meshes so beautifully that, in the context of this record at least, I couldn't really give a hoot.
