that's some rat tail.
No definitely Coal Chamber. I think I was just reading Kerrang or Metal Hammer at the time and assumed all the bands were British because the newspaper was. I don't even remember Cold!I think you might be confusing them with Cold, who definitely fit more of a post-grunge alt-rock pigeonhole, but were possibly discovered by fellow Floridian Fred Durst... both bands were in Metal Hammer and Kerrang! around the same time. Would say Coal Chamber probably slide more neatly into a nu-metal hole, but Cold... well, they're just like a better version of Bush, aren't they?
Same genre as Counting Crows, Tragically Hip etc... adult rock? MOR. Music for the tragic hip replacement...rock made for the weak of joints.i know shag all about them; blind melon are just alternative rather than grunge?
Foetus did it first with the four letter album titles:Cold, Bush... I suppose the Jesus Lizard are to blame for all these four letter word band names in the 90s with album titles like Shot, Head, Down, Liar, Goat, Club and so on... Rossdale likes to cite Jesus Lizard as an influence, eh,, yeah mate,
Anyway, moving on, their two songs were fairly big novelty hits, and rightly so, but I make the case that the POTUSA debut had the best guitar tones (or Guitbass and Basitar tones I guess) out of the entire decade
Too late for this thread's timeline but what do you lot make of Audioslave?
I've some mates a few years younger than me and the Audioslave debut to them is their 14-15 years old "this changed my life and showed me what rock can do" album, but at the time I thought it was embarrassing corporate rock by people with too much money. Even the indie NME sponsored-by-shockwaves scene of Strokes et al was more interesting, but maybe it's time to give them a fair listen?
Tom Morello was a guest on a radio show called "The First Time", where musicians talk about the first gig they went to, first album they bought etc.audioslave are beyond rescue; I say this as a dyed-in-the-wool defender of the glorious legacies of both soundgarden and RATM
but I remember someone on thumped telling a story years ago about some friend of theirs who had used the name audioslave back in the 90s, and basically they got a nice pile of money to abandon the name and let the supergroup use it instead
(and, as a more-or-less unrelated thought: in a post-BLM woke america, I really don’t think the name audioslave would actually get used today)
Have you ever been in a band? tbf he was saying bands who make it to a certain level of success should watch ST once in a while.Re: the RATM Spinal Tap thing - what is wrong with Americans??
Unless he's trying to pull one over on seanc...
yep, it was. I saw The Strokes at the Olympia around the time This Is It (Is This It? Is It This? - the Spinal Tap smell the glove inspired album with Last Night) and they were really good. Way better than their album and anything I’ve heard since.Even the indie NME sponsored-by-shockwaves scene of Strokes et al was more interesting,
