PlantweedSend Plantweed a message :   I still listen to them, something I can't say about Rapeman. I've only heard an album and a couple singles by Shellac, didn't grab me. What's their best record? Probably better live. Personally I'd rather read an interview or have dinner w/ Albini than listen to his music, he's an articulate fucker.
Big Black...I still wish I could make out the lyrics to "Tiny, King of the Jews."

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   big black was one of the heaviest, nastiest, loudest, scariest, most wonderful bands of the 80's. and that's saying something.

PlantweedSend Plantweed a message :   This was 87, I believe a video exists.
Albini's subsequent bands were never as good.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   this was big black's infamous final show at the (antique) georgetown steamplant in seattle. when was that? 90? it was held inside the steamplant itself with all of the ancient copper boilers (it's a national historic building) with the most incredibly loud sharp echoing acoustics ever heard by man. combine that with big black's final earsplitting efforts (even smashed their equipment) and i'll bet a third of seattle's hipster squad went deaf. it was amazing.
i think larry reid or dennis white did this poster (probabl;y larry reid, but thta's rocket typesetting on it, so that's why i think dennis may have had something to do with it). the image is obviously lifted directly from and old black cat firecracker poster. there was a stash of those posters at an old junk store in pioneer square and every hipster worth their salt had one hanging on their wall. so, this became an iconic image to use for an iconic show/episode.
local Kulture.

ToothSend Tooth a message :   larry reid, yes, thanks.
- a "friend" convinced me to work for him the night of this show.. (I stupidly said yes before i knew why), he kept saying it was really really important that he have the night off, I peeled this off a pole on the walk home.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   this was designed by larry reid. he did a lot of nw punk stuff.
this was big black's final show. it was held in an fully restored antique steam plant that was a national historical sight. the sound echoed off polished brass boilers and pipes and brick walls and it split your eardrums like nothing i've ever heard. at the end they smashed their gear, and that was the end of big black. awesome scary show.
