Oh no, horrible memories of unsuitable women!

d-u-d-d DUD!

Johnny Fever (johnny fever), Saturday, 12 June 2004 03:48 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

I like select tracks like "Healthy Body, Sick Mind" and "Sound System," but they could never sustain my interest for too long. Also, dud for all the crappy bands they inspired.

Wonderful memories of unsuitable punker girls!

I barely remember what they sounded like, but the album on Lookout mostly bored me to death. "Unity" and "Sound System" were pretty good, as was the first Suicide Machines album, where they just ripped off the good parts of OpIvy.

one of the better ska classics, but who listens to any ska after 1983 who isn't in a ska band that will soon kick out their horn players to go all punky?

My 13 year-old mind thought this was the greatest thing it had ever heard.

Debito (Debito), Saturday, 12 June 2004 08:53 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

yeah, I reckon roger and debito are otm. I haven't listened to that album since I was in high school, but man, that was really the shit back then. Now I guess it'd be more nostalgia than anything else.

Same here, but some of their songs still rock.
Search: Knowledge, Soundsystem, Missionary, Here We Go Again, Artificial Life
Destroy: that fucking song about jumping in bushes, I can't remember what its called. (just remembered: Hedgecore. Destroy Hedgecore.)

They did have lots of dumb songs, inspired horrible bands, and losers wear their t-shirt, but damned if I don't still have a soft spot for them.

They're great for what they were. I say classic (I'm not gonna judge a band for their shit imitators).

latebloomer (latebloomer), Saturday, 12 June 2004 18:51 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

if this band continues to sound good after 16 you probably took a serious wrong turn somewhere

Surely Jon's recent R'lyeh name-change implies a fondness for Call of Cthulhu? GURPS freaks me the fuck out. Also Op Ivy > The Clash.

I remember going to SMASH in D.C. and buying a Specials t-shirt, a Bosstones t-shirt, and an Operation Ivy t-shirt. Then I bought some ox-blood docs.

Does any of this mean anything to a 13 year-old today?

Debito (Debito), Sunday, 13 June 2004 01:03 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

actually it was save ferris who created it in a lab while collaborating with goldfinger. the first few tries looked like the aborted ripley clones from alien resurrection.

classic.

I have been listening to Op Ivy lately which is something I haven't done since H.S. when I pretty much listened to them every single morning on the bus for my entire senior year. I think it still holds up for what it was and it's good spring/summer listening. <3

EN Save-A-Ken BB (ENBB), Saturday, 4 April 2009 01:49 (ten years ago) Permalink

i like op ivy, but man o man, i was irritated in high school by the neverending parade of op ivy t-shirts. in mid-90s southern california they were standard issue. that and bad religion t-shirts. not sure if the people who wore them even owned the albums.

tylerw, Saturday, 4 April 2009 01:53 (ten years ago) Permalink

hahaha. First band shirt I ever bought and yeah, that was in the mid-90s but on LI. In my girls catholic HS though I was the only one.

EN Save-A-Ken BB (ENBB), Saturday, 4 April 2009 01:56 (ten years ago) Permalink

yeah i think it was a weird regional phenomenon ... like at some point kids graduated from offspring/green day shirts to op ivy and bad religion. and then maybe pennywise/NOFX. and then sublime/bob marley.

classic, but the moment Brad Nowell heard them and went "y'know, I think I can do this too", Tim Armstrong shoulda sent him in a pane of glass into outer space

this album is great tho ive been revisiting it lately & surprisingly still so great

Neanderthal, Sunday, 7 August 2011 16:45 (seven years ago) Permalink

Classic, and I agree with the folks upthread saying they fit almost perfectly when you're in your mid-teens. Prone to digging out the odd song during fits of nostalgia still.
