I could never and still can't figure out why so many people like(d) them. AWFUL

No, but I did see the Long Beach Dub All Stars @ the Warped tour the year they were on it. Huge contact high.

they were the biggest band in the world in the South Bay circa 1996. it was terrible. actually come to think of it, they might still be the biggest band in the South Bay to this day.

i gotta give them credit for being the only mainstream alt-rock band to ever claim The Minutemen as an influence who actually sound like The Minutemen. that's about all i'll give them credit for, though.

Like all my alt-leaning friends totally fucked with this band for a hot minute in 1995-1997, and now they are 100% OFF LIMITS. WTF happened?

never liked this band, never bought any of their albums, but i find them hard to hate

tempted to lead a revival of this band, partly because i can still sing the self-titled album from start to finish from memory

nice guys, had fun drinking with them at a totally failed show attended by 14 people before date rape became a hit. lead singer was a terrible fuck-up, but a genuinely nice guy that would prob be really annoyed by the way he/they have been marketed to the frat boy set posthumously.

Huh? I never heard much minutemen or sublime but whuh? present songs as evidence for comparison please.

it's more audible on the guitar/bass/drums stuff on the albums than the more hip hop/ska influenced radio hits but it's super audible at times.

I owned every legit Sublime release in the 1990s plus several cd-rs of bootleg material, including a full tape of Raleigh Theodore Sakers rants (as excerpted on Robbin' The Hood).

Do Primus claim the Minutemen as an influence? (Not saying they necessarily sound like them, but I can imagine them sounding at least as much like them sometimes as Sublime do sometimes.)

xhuxk, Monday, 4 May 2009 19:42 (5 years ago) Permalink

I was the biggest Primus stan from 1993-1999 and I've never heard them mention it.

Whiney G. Weingarten, Monday, 4 May 2009 19:42 (5 years ago) Permalink

geographically speaking, i'd imagine that any punk band from Long Beach at that time would be at least aware, if not really into, the minutemen.

i'm not good w/ song titles but there are some where Nowell is totally doing some D. Boon-style blurting and abrupt soloing and the rhythm section does little tempo changes.

do they sound more like minutemen than red hot chili peppers?

Philip Nunez, Monday, 4 May 2009 19:47 (5 years ago) Permalink

point isn't that Sublime sounded totally like the Minutemen 24/7, just that they showed the influence more overtly than, say, anyone else who was talking them up in the mid-90s or appearing on Ball Hog Or Tugboat?

xpost - yes they do

cumlord millionaire (some dude), Monday, 4 May 2009 19:48 (5 years ago) Permalink

don't think i bought any. my brother did and i would steal his all the time tho. tbh i think their singles are all pretty awful (save 'doin time') but esp. on the first album it's some pretty decent ska. i never listen to them but i don't hate hate 'em. i pretty much have no interest in hearing the s/t ever again tho

That's really funny. I enjoy a ton of '80s SST and indie/punk stuff but actually have never liked/enjoyed the Minutemen. Why? Back in college, I played Double Nickels and for some reason it reminded me of Sublime et al.

Maybe I wasn't far off base, if I'm not the only one to notice...

I did a music video for "Needle and the Damage Done" to a montage of drug use and overdose scenes from various movies. It started with pot and beer scenes from Dazed and Confused and then escalated uncomfortably. I tagged on the long shot of Jim Morrison's grave from the end of The Doors at the end.

Still partial to this opening salvo. I was so disappointed to pick up the CD version and find that "Get Out" had been completely removed.

I bet I could make a decent Sublime playlist, and I'm kinda jonesing for one with this thread being bumped, but I didn't save any of their CDs.
