"I was listening to Eccsame the Photon Band again (I've never stopped) this time really loud. It really hasn't aged at all. It could have come out yesterday. I was thinking of giving it a C or D thread just to see if anyone also felt that it was really special or at least very unique. Thoughts?"

Hi evan,I remember commenting under an YouTube video of Radiotricity,saying that turn up the volume to the highest you can take and be overwhelmed with it...I don't remember exactly how I said it and the video is now gone...I now feel that my phrases are really cliche and sentimental..

Does anybody have the resources for these unreleased songs:give a little distance,lire,imagination... etc?This site names many,but the songs are all unavailable.(or is it just my phone's problem?)
I see upthread but I don't have access to any of them😔

Hey Nancy,

You might like this, 'Send In The Subs' an unofficial CDR of unreleased tunes, much-discussed upthread.

Thanks,Maresn3st,but send in the sub doesn't have the songs I talked about. I also wanna get the information on some untitled tracks from the only 1994 live show on YouTube,like what their names are.. :)

Hi Nancy! I forgot I made that post. I still feel that way! In a perfect world it would be looked back on as something way ahead of its time. It has since been reissued and despite my 2014 wishes it did not generate the mass revaluation I was hoping for. Maybe if it got a "Best New Reissue" treatment on Pitchfork or something. The existing cult remains. Oh, I did somehow get some friends to indulge it. That was a win, as our tastes are mostly growing further apart.

Thanks for bringing it up. Love talking about one of my favorite records of all time.

Eccsame might be the most underrated Lilys record, at times it's my favorite as well.

It's the only one that's really hard to describe and sounds the least of its time. All the others can be mostly boiled down to a short description because they are straightforward exercises regardless of how you rate them. The shoegaze one, the indie rock circa 94 one, Eccsame The Photon Band, the Kinks-y rebirth, the REALLY Kinks-y one, the indie rock circa 03 one, the poor man's Spoon one. Guess you could say "the space rock one" or something but it'll be the hardest to prepare a new listener for with that kind of simple label.

Funny, I've been listening to Eccsame (again) and Better Can't Make Your Life Better (for the first time) recently, both incredible. Can hardly believe the same person made them both, so close together. I was definitely having those "ahead of their time" feelings, too. Would they be considered a major band if they'd arrived 5-10 years later? Well, they were major.

A Brief History... and The 3-Way were both reissued last month, the former with some extra '94 era tracks, plus one never released called "G. Cobalt Franklin." Maybe that's one of the unnamed songs? I'll check it out later.

That song was previously one of the instrumentals on Send In The Subs along with the others that were instrumentals of the 4 songs from the Aspera Ad Astra split. With that, I think there is still one instrumental left on Subs that doesn't have vocals tied to it elsewhere.

Haha, to me it's the "Talk Talk/David Sylvian/Japan" album.

That one instrumental left on send in the subs,I fight my urges to listen to it cause I wanna experience the otherworldly feel that I fail to describe when it was paired with vocals.

Do you guys know lilys fansite has an YouTube account?

one of its videos

^^^That was a good tour. It was The Beachwood Sparks full band backing Kurt (which at that point in time shared a couple common members).

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 11 March 2021 16:32 (one month ago) link

omg,I did not know that. I'd love to see live videos at this point in time. I find myself liking these band members' projects as well,beachwood sparks,the photon band...I remember once I was listening to a compilation and the only two songs I liked belonged to Beachwood Sparks which I only find out later was in connection with lilys.

Photon Band is very underrated! I like them

Evan, Friday, 12 March 2021 19:32 (one month ago) link

I need to revisit Beachwood Sparks... I have always been a HUGE Further fan, massive- but mostly for the California sun warped Dinosaur Jr tape vibes unique to that stuff in particular.

Evan, Friday, 12 March 2021 22:02 (one month ago) link

I love the photon band very much!It's my favorite side band.
