Listen to this band, tell me your thoughts!

Post by tromatizer on Fri Feb 10, 2012 6:11 pm

Yay! I have an internet connection! Now that I can finally browse the forum on a screen larger than 3 inches, I've noticed that there is a severe lack of posts in this music section. Shiney seems to keep it going, so I'm going to throw a challenge out there: what do ya'll think about The Paper Chase? Those who know me, they know I'm always talking about John Congleton and this band, but they are kind of obscure so I want to see if 1) any of ya'll know of them and 2) if not, will you check them out and let me know what you think? For the uninitiated, they are an avante garde band which employs jazz-esque (but only in the free-style sense) electric guitar, samples from old vinyl to horror movies, and the unique lyrics of producer John Congleton, who has worked with pretty much everyone in every genre of music imaginable. The band was recently "shut down", and Congleton has started a new one called The Nighty Nite, which is basically The Paper Chase minus everyone but drummer, but is equally awesome. Here are some links to some decent songs, if you have never heard them before. If you like what you hear, definitely start with their first album (Young Bodies Heal Quickly) and work your way through. Each album has a loose narrative, but the entire body of work also forms a narrative of it's own.

So, do you love it? Do you hate it? Do you wish to disembowl your best friend and forever bury these sounds inside? I want to start throwing some obscure bands I enjoy out there for you guys to digest (or purge), and this seems like a good starting point, given the Paper Chase's sprawling body of work!

We went over PAPER CHASE a while back. We even used a video/song of theirs as a flash challenge prompt.

You know how I feel about 'em, Chris....

I should probably just cross-post here everything I post at other music forums.

Not a fan of Paper Chase.

You only missed it by nearly 2 years. It was the prompt back in June/July 2010.
