My band Truck Stop Love played with Hagfish in I believe the show was in Eau Claire, WI. It was a Great Show.
Check us out sometime. Our drummer was Eric Melin who would later go on to be in Ultimate Fakebook. Thanks for the posting!
I used to have Buick Men on cassette and it vanished somewhere over time. The best I could get was the Happiness promo, which is nice, but not as nice as the entire CD. I would have to repectfully disagree about their rerecordings being better. While the sound and editing is perhaps better on a technical level, I almost always prefer the original recording of any band.
It's hard to describe, but the music just sounds more raw and passionate to me. I personally Aquarium - Hagfish - Buick Men that it's because they were still regular guys trying to make it, rather than having a big Foolish Boy (Zetandel Chill Out Remix) - Various - Armada Lounge Volume 7 deal.
An example of this is the Nixons local album Halo which they rerecorded most of into Foma. To me the renditions of Sister and Wire don't sound nearly as passionate. Post a Comment. Monday, February 25, Hagfish - Buick Men Worth s music scene. A dapper, Brooks Brothers-donning quartet, who's relentless Ramones cum Descendent's punk-pop made an already fertile period for rock and roll that much more stimulating.
Their often debaucheristic songs were all-surge, power-chord melees that you'd swear could induce whiplash, if only metaphorically. Buick Men was the first of Hagfish's trifecta of proper albums. Released independently on the Dallas based Dragon Street Records in '93, It contained 19 blistering numbers, without a single one exceeding the three- minute mark.
This cd would soon become the rarest and most coveted of all Hagfish releases, due in part to the modest national following they would garner via their second album Rocks Your Lame Ass.
Rock's was in fact Hagfish's first and only Aquarium - Hagfish - Buick Men label offering. Roughly half of Buick Men's songs were rerecorded for this album, and were improved substantially I might add. The Terrace - Greg Howe - Five even better album, self-titled followed in on the esteemed Honest Dons label.
The group is Aquarium - Hagfish - Buick Men defunct, but a handful of posthumous cds have been released. A "relapse" reunion album was supposed to surface in '04, but alas, bupkis.
It's collectiblity may have diminished, but it's scarceness hasn't. Posted by spavid at PM. Newer Post Older Post Home. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom. Best of the Blogosphere.
