>>54401662 Weird thing I like both versions equally. The original works as a sort of high pitched balled with everything very tight and focused. But the live version is such a fucking chaotic experience.
>>54402707 Yeah thats some fucking extreme shit. The weird thing is there shows usually werent this crazy. Look at any other gig and none of them had as crazy an audience as this. The ones in CBGBs were always very relaxed and the audience would joke with them.
>>54403003 Ehh bulldozer was really just them ironing out the sound they wanted. Texas and Cables are good but every song on there is performed much better live. Lungs is weird cause its more cabaret voltaire and post punkish than the noise rock they would later make. Steelworker is fucking undeniable though.
>>54403083 yeah that's the thing though steelworker would be better live too and the lyrics aren't hard enough yet, there's something there but it's not quite fully formed I dunno though steve reverts to his edgy nerd persona later on though too, that line about fucking someone's girlfriend in Bad Penny is pretty cringeworthy and there's that stuff at the end of the rapeman album >You let me shave your pussy >I let you paint my dick most of his sex writing is so sad and naive it's kind of cute
>>54403186 Honestly I thought the bad penny monologue was supposed to really cringey and strange. I always felt he was trying to play it for laughs. That being said yeah rapemans lyrics are kinda cringey. I think he was kinda lyrically at a crossroads on rapemen with some tracks being more big black (Budd) and some being more shellac (superpussy). Shellac seems to have much more of a sense of humor about itself lyrically.
>>54403186 I always tought that Steve lyrics are just there to set the mood he wants for the song. I think the best thing that happened to Big Black was the arrive of Riley. Pezzati was good don't get me wrong, but that bastard of Dave was just perfect for them.
>>54403322 I don't even mind the earnest shellac stuff, the confessional tracks on 1000 hurts are not really my thing but at least they're honest. it's not that the big black stuff isn't funny enough for me, it's that sometimes he's trying to be something he's not. you sure about the budd/superpussy thing? I see them almost exactly opposite, the downtempo thing is more shellac >>54403483 yeah it's formative but it's not all there yet
>>54403678 Yeah I really didnt like like Pezzatis bass tone. its way to fucking springy and nothing like the all out smash Riley had. Anyway have you checked out Arsenal Durangos band after Big Black its pretty fucking good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qkmhcme_bEU
>>54403756 Im speaking lyrically. Sonically I agree with you but Budds lyrics are more in line with Big Blacks penchant for realistic violent acts where as superpussy lyrically fits in more with shellacs absurdity.
>>54403678 >>54403804 pezzati played on the racer x intro didn't he? I'm terrible at figuring out which guitar is playing but I'll give it another whirl sometime. any late-era tracks where it's prominent come to mind to give me a start?
