looking forward to them digging into the craft of songwriting, but also not expecting it

Pretty weird to see 100 Gecs get embraced by hipsters after like 30 years of message board posters calling John Zorn and Mr. Bungle insufferable neckbeard music

The Mandymoorian (Whiney G. Weingarten), Thursday, 5 December 2019 23:06 (nine months ago) link

I think ringtone is genuinely a well written song. Catchy, and it switches up in the second half before it returns to the start. But yeah, a lot of the album is noise with jokes on top. Which is great as well.

my only disappointment with coming out as trans was finding out that trans people in real life listen to the same sort of music everyone else listens to; we're not really some sort of tastemaker cultural elite. eventually other people will cotton on to the fact that we're not actually "cool" but until them i guess we can snow them by talking about 100 gecs

Agnes Motörhead (rushomancy), Friday, 6 December 2019 14:23 (nine months ago) link

whiney some of us have actually been waiting almost thirty years for someone to mr bungle all the great music that came out after mr bungle just let us have this one okay

based grandpa (noz), Saturday, 7 December 2019 06:45 (nine months ago) link

I just keep going back to this album again and again, which isn't something I expected after my initial listen. Definitely up there as far as album of the year goes.

(I also listened to Mr. Bungle a lot in the 90s)

In gecs-adjacent news, Dog Show Records just put out this track and along with the music video it’s taken up the better part of my media consumption over the past 24 hrs:

i got late to this album and i don't think i want to listen to it much ever again but it's a real good time if you go into it with the right attitude!
also, "money machine" is kind of all-time great somehow

you need to visit the top 77 singles, lots of naysaying there.

If I knew what the fuck they were trying to do I might have a go at dissing them, that or I would be a fan I guess.

What's fresh about chipmunk vocals in 2019 ? This is for people who had not yet heard of PC Music, back in 2014.
Novelty and stupid jokes are immune to criticism, so it's not on you if you don't have the patience to go through more than ten seconds of that shit.

Y u hate fun

silby, Tuesday, 28 April 2020 13:33 (four months ago) link

as is often the case the best angle we have here is from d-40 about pure surface. there are other things that you might call totally superficial that don't have the same resonance or particular affect, just as there are many types of shitposting. gecs have a distinct attitude behind them that is v different to melodramatic kitsch old stuff like mr bungle or whatever. it's not parody, it's not quite pastiche. there is a welcoming cuteness and personability that help make gecs infectious, but also a blankness. they're not aiming for any sort of transcendence, they're not referring to anything other than referencing itself, it's pure empty gesture, like when maggie nelson says "the most I want to do is show you the end of my index finger. its muteness". there's an acceptance and glory in the total lack of transcendence, a ritualistic embrace of uselessness

could say they are doomer fun. not nihilistic necessarily (altho never listen to anyone who uses nihilist pejoratively), or stupid necessarily, so much as irrationalist. high nonsense. which makes them traditional rock and roll as outlined by meltzer.

The Cognitive Peasant (ogmor), Tuesday, 28 April 2020 14:28 (four months ago) link

why is everyone suddenly talking about them

Well, yeah.

post-ween imo. something extremely, aggressively non-specific about the emptiness. beyond pastiche, not so much playing with particular signifiers as totally burnt out on cycling through them. standing atop the mashed-up goo, everything smells like shit. lowest-common-denominator meaninglessness to the point of total fluidity.

the square garden set is the definitive document imo, better than the album

The Cognitive Peasant (ogmor), Tuesday, 28 April 2020 15:58 (four months ago) link

Were there visuals for square garden or was it audio only? Is Youtube best place to look or is there a full video on Twitch?

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Tuesday, 28 April 2020 16:24 (four months ago) link

there was a minecraft world, the twitch streams I've seen are full of chat, there are some vids on youtube that give you the idea

loathe to google why everyone is gecsplaining right now

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Tuesday, 28 April 2020 16:50 (four months ago) link

for the record my earlier post wasn't meant as some kind of sharp meta-dismissal of 100 gecs themselves, more a dismissal of the idea that there would be any value or purpose in any of us dismissing them.

100 gecs don't exactly invite critical discourse. what the hell am i supposed to say? i don't get it? who cares if i get it? they're not doing it for my benefit. i'm trans, sure, but i'm also a bougie middle-aged white lady. if they want my opinion, they'll ask.

but i have no idea why they would _want_ my opinion, quite honestly. it's not like uninformed critical opinions from clueless people are in short supply right now. the one thing i do get from being trans is that i am frequently the recipient of exactly those sort of judgements on my lived experience from people whose opinions are simply irrelevant. 100 gecs' music is their expression of their lived experience, and the least i can do is respect that. i support whatever it is they are doing, and i hope it brings them joy and that it brings the people who have some faint inkling of what the hell they are up to joy.

Kate (rushomancy), Tuesday, 28 April 2020 16:53 (four months ago) link
