Hearing Roddy Bottum sing "You kiss me like a man, boy" n the summer of 1996 did as much to coax out my closeted queerness as Roxy, Bowie, and Reed did. A perfect album.

one of my very favorite bands. i was always a what is not to love guy and haven't listened to this one in years. butch is probably the one i like most in the context of the album, but i would never have heard of these guys if not for you're one getting a *very* occasional spin on alt rock radio in '96.

we polled seasick and no one* came
we polled and polled it just the same
if there's no votes then there's no poll
if there's no stream then there's no shoal

*an exaggeration. Thanks voters! Still, guess I'll wait til ILM's all revved up on the new album before polling What is Not to Love (adolescent me's fave). Speaking of: https://imperialteen.bandcamp.com/album/now-we-are-timeless -- out in 8 days, and I only learned of it by searching "Imperial Teen." Where's the coverage?

i will have a really tough time picking a favorite from what is not to love.

I just totally missed this. (Great appropriation of "You're One"!) I would have voted for "You're One" too. "Pig Latin" would be a close second--I've got all their albums, and that's probably one of my five favorite songs by them.
