Happy 6000th post!
This probably won’t be as popular as my last appreciation thread, but I just wanted to see if there were many other S-K fans out there and have a place to worship their brilliance.
I came in at One Beat thanks to a flat mate and was lucky enough to see them play live at The Corner not long after. I actually stuck with that album for a few years until I got curious about their back catalogue, from there I’ve gathered every recording of theirs…which isn’t too hard, there’s not a massive amount, but some of the earlier recordings are getting hard to pin down.
There’s plenty of rumours about a reformation and they’ve joined others on stage recently, so I’ve got my fingers crossed for a new album.
Vocalist/guitarist Carrie Brownstein is one of the creators/actors of Portlandia.
Fun fact: their first album was recorded in Melbourne.
