These are album covers by a band called National Skyline. The albums? Not very good. The cover art? Dude, in 2002 this shit looked like it was downloaded from God’s Yahoo! photos album. If you had this shit on vinyl, you could probably get girls to sleep with you just by showing it to them. Actually playing it would just get girls to sleep. You’re welcome, I just saved you three hours.
If you’re old enough or emo enough to remember “Stars” by Hum then get me drunk sometime and I can probably talk about the Champaign-Urbana space rock scene for days. Everyone always says that the Smashing Pumpkins were into My Bloody Valentine and stuff and that’s why Siamese Dream rules so much but that’s a lie that Billy Corgan made up after someone told him it was cool to tell people you like My Bloody Valentine. He was really just ripping off the Poster Children.
Otherwise just cop that new Boris. It’s really good and no one will tell you this but it sounds just like Hum half the time. I know it’s cooler to say it sounds like Merzbow or Doom Metal or something but I have listened to all kinds of Merzbow and Doom Metal and I am telling you it sounds like Hum a lot more than it sounds like that.
Here’s a track. It’s way long so I had to zShare it. I also don’t know what the proper title of it is because I don’t speak Japanese. If you know any Japanese people maybe you can ask them what it is. I used to do that with stuff all the time and it was never a problem because all the Japanese people I’ve met have been super nice.
