Oh man, stack any single one of Maiden's like first five albums against PJ's whole friggin' catalog, musically Maiden will just stomp those sissy boys into the fuckin ground. PJ may be nice guys, good politics, etc., but they're like room-temp dishwater, they just sit there. Kick back w/ Number of the Beast on headphones, you'll feel like you've just been double-teamed by two Latina chicks, you'll be HIGH, man.

As for PJ, I love thier music. I'm not judging them on thier politics or how they got together, just the music. I can connect with it and have a release that few bands give me. Not that anybody really cares what I think about them.

shaun126Send shaun126 a message :   to each his own man, one of the reasons I like them so much is the way they dealt with the media. Most bands that make it do whatever it takes to get out there, I.E. videos on MTV and interviews. After Ten PJ stopped all that shit because they were tired of all the hype. That in my book is fucking cool.   2002-08-04 14:37:39

'jeremy' I think it was.
Imean I assume they are all competent musicians, but they have a weird 'media vibe' that turns me off.
I cant explain it..they to me are associated with bands like RHCP and Smashing Pumpkins which I personally find distastful.

Or the fact that Jeff and Stone had played together for years...youre from seattle you know that. It also overlooks the fact that Stone was trying to get Jack Irons to play drums, he couldnt do it, but gave the demo to Ed who he knew in San Diego. Basically it seems like youre saying none of this is true. Jack wasnt even in the band and thats how he says it went down. Why would he lie?   2002-08-04 12:34:57
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   saun -
the story i heard from insiders is that is EXACTLY the way the band was put together - by the label. a real "here's yer new singer, see if he fits" scenario. eddie was a so-cal dude with a string of failed bands and contracts behind him and mlb was tricked into recording before the non-compete was exhausted. they were all stuck in big debt (everything is recoupable when it comes to majors - quater mill for mlb in recording debt alone, i guess). they were pretty stuck. but they were pretty much guaranteed success with the music promo machine gearing up behind them. they were lucky it all meshed so well and that they were all a great fit. but they were never a 'roots grunge' band. they were a hard rock band put together by the label to cash in. sorry, that's the story as i know it from being in seattle working behind the senes. just business, always the right thing to do. nothing personal, ya know.

shaun126Send shaun126 a message :   I think to say The label "put them together" isnt really true. Yes they owed money to the label. But its not as though the band were all strangers like the fucking monkees. The label didnt find Ed and say this is your new singer, go write some songs. Im sure you know exactly how everyone got together so I wont bother retelling the story. The bottom line is Sony paid off MLB's debt to the previous record company in order to sign PJ, thats that.   2002-08-04 10:45:50
Steve HSend Steve H a message :   art is right, pearl jam are really the corporate left overs from the seattle early 90's "grunge" scene, they've been milked and packaged and sold but thats cool, if you like them then great,it doesn't bother me,it bothers some people; being a huge corporate band an all that,nirvana were bigger than pearl jam and i loved em, zeppelin are bigger NOW than pearl jam and i love em; if ur good ur good. we just have different tastes shaun, you're moved by pearl jam and i wouldn't take that away from you, they don't do anything for me tho. and like u say, not liking someones voice is a good enough reason for not liking a band, thats very true, its as true as not liking a band because u think they're lame or make pussy music or whatever, just an example dude, each to their own.   2002-08-04 10:42:34
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   the history of pj is a bit more corporate than the rest of seattle. they were put together by their label to pay off the debts incurred with their earlier bands. then the record promotion machine went into action to capitalize on the 'grunge' phenom and they cashed in. since then guilt has been their main artistic motivation it seems. folks in seattle all like the guys individually (generally) but most people from back then don't give a rats ass about the band. they were never seen as much more than a coprorate construct.
one sad story is that '10' was at the top of the charts for almost six months before they managed to pay off the motherlovebone debt.
corporations (and their accountants and lawyers) are evil motherfuckers, ya know?

shaun126Send shaun126 a message :   Pearl jam were NEVER posing as a heavy metal or grunge band, it just so happens they came from seattle at the wrong time, so thats what they were labeled. from day one they were true to what they loved and were influenced by, the stones..the who...neil young...and thats pretty much the style they have always played. Just rock music. Im not trying to convert anyone to be a pearl jam fan. You dont have to like a band just because they have talent. I know Zepplin is talented as hell. I'm not a fan mostly because I cant stand Plant's voice. And thats what makes rock cool. Pick your favorite. Choose sides. Beatles fan or Stones fan?Metallica fan or Megadeth fan? Nsync fan or Backstreet fan? Ok not so much the latter, but you get my point. To say something you dont like "just sucks", or is "pussy music", is IGNORANT.   2002-08-04 10:14:47
Steve HSend Steve H a message :   shaun, who cares what i think about pearl jam?! to me they are a rock band that don't rock, they're a little bit pretentious and vedders vocals a little too operatic. sure they have their moments but you're obviously having difficulty inseeing why other people don't like em. shit man, i work in a record shop and the kids come in and buy their limp biscuit and corn and systemofadown and seem completely oblivious to the zeppelin thats on the speakers, i don't geddit either, its the same with u and pearl jam. we all like stuff and you think, how could anyone not like this?! its called having different tastes. the beatles i wouldn't say did pussy music, okay ompared to napalm death its pussy music but the beatles weren't posing as a heavy metal or grunge band, they just wrote great songs that you love.   2002-08-04 07:09:43
seripopSend seripop a message :   art i was simply going with what u said when ya said they had a hard time getting hired cuz they are a pj ghetto of course the design would be as good with anyother band name. just for me, rock posters are about music as much as design. if i hate the band, it don't really mater how great the design is, i still feel like a chump havin' it on my wall. hey i dig mainstream stuff. most of the metal i like ain't exactlly indie. i simply think that ANY artist who works pretty exclusively doing rock posters and record sleeves for a particular band that isn't very respected MIGHT have a hard time getting other bands who want em to work for em cuz they don't wanna be associated with a aestetic that is popularly known as being that of a certain band. did that make sense? cuz i'm not the smartest.. but whatever. i like ames. i think they do great shit and i'd love to see em do work for other bands.. maybe it'll happen, maybe not, either way it's none of my beeswax- i'd just like to have one of their posters on my wall without feeing embarassed. and by pussy music i mean not heavy. i'm ALOT younger than most of u. the first pearl jam record came out when i was in seventh grade, wearing skin tight jeans, feathered dyed black waist lenght hair and listening to METAL 24/7. i had no inkling of indie music at the time, i just didn't like "pussy" music.. latter as i got older and my tastes matured, i never dug em. foud the guy's voice irratating as all fuck and found the music bland and overproduced. give me maiden any day. and last time i checked , maiden weren't indie.   2002-08-04 00:00:22
MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   The Ames posters are amazing. I have never ever liked PJ. I just don't like the music. I think one of the reasons is that they got tagged with the label grunge and I never saw them as grunge. Tad, Mudhoney,Screaming Trees and pre Nevermind Nirvana are what I consider grunge. By the time the world knew what grunge was...well, it wasn't grunge anymore. In my opinion anyway. I kind of fallowed the Seattle thing from way before the crazy trends started.   2002-08-03 23:38:03
Bradley W. ZimmermanSend Bradley W. Zimmerman a message :   see, i'd have no problem doing a pj poster. in fact, i'd feel kinda honored (after getting my cash) - i have no problem with their politics (particularly after the Ticketmaster thing).
in fact, after picking up one of the "official bootlegs" they released last year, i'd even say i like them now. they fill a certain void in 'American' music.
(cue Chloe and Harry punchline)
PJ is a punchline now. so was Blue Oyster Cult for about 10 or so years there. so were Nirvana. whatever.
there's more important things in the world than indie cred. when you start taking it seriously, you become a cliche. often a penniless one at that.
as for this poster, i think it's one of the weaker ones they've done. political statments always benefit from a bit of subtlety.
of course, i'm sure someone here will chime in with "so it fits the band perfectly, then!" ;-)

There's just something I can't get into.

it also cut off the bottom half where i said that to think that they are suffering because of their association with pearl jam isn't seem correct, and that they are doing just fine.
at least i think that's what i wrote. i wonder why it cut off the first part and the last part?

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   i can sort of identify with their sitution because so many people have 'accused' me of creating 'grunge design' (i just happened to be in seattle when the exploitation took place. my creative work was exploited like the music or anything else was). so, when you 'accuse' them of shaping the pearl jam look, i disagree. i see a bunch of talented guys doing cool (put pointless) images that get the name 'peral jam' slapped on them as an excuse to make them in the first place. they would be just as good if they said 'sonic youth   2002-08-03 22:44:17

shaun126Send shaun126 a message :   If you dont like the way a guys voice sounds thats cool. Or if you dont think a particular guitar player is very talented thats cool also. To say a band like PJ makes "pussy music", pretty much means you are unfamilar with the bulk of their catalog. And if thats your choice which is ok. Just dont make genralizations becuase you heard a couple songs, or a couple albums and you didnt like what you heard.   2002-08-03 22:16:05

seripopSend seripop a message :   hey i don't begrudge ames for working for pearl jam at all. i love thier work and familly is familly and a buck is a buck. however you can not deny that they are now considered the pearl jam guys for better or wors. and if they are having a hard time attracting clients because of it it must be for worst. face it most corporate bands would think what they do is "weird" and most big indies don't want thier stuff having the same look as a pearl jam poster. it's not their fault fault the band they did most of their work for is pretty much universally hated. and no i can't admit i ever liked em cuz i never did. and at 13 it wasn't a matter of "street cred" it was simply cuz i thought they were pussy music. and i don't feel i deried them at all i feel it's a sad truth that no one wants to associated with the designers who moulded the look of pearl jam.   2002-08-03 21:34:17
Steve HSend Steve H a message :   point taken, no one can deny that they're good, i wouldn't knock em for doing anyone to tell you the truth. i suppose i wouldn't do certain bands but thats just me, its weird how i could turn my back on some bands because of the credibility factor but i really don't hold anything against other artists doing something i wouldn't. its when they become greedy and stuffing their faces with more and more cake and selling their alreadt fat butts to ANYBODY just for more money and cake that bothers me slightly.   2002-08-03 21:22:29

my comments i guess are meant to be directed more at those self-righteous dreamers who think they can only be cool and somehow get rich. and people who attack the ames boys seem to be sorta like that.
i watched the ames develope in seattle and they srated out being the envy of all us starving artists up there because they immediately went into the very top band in the scene. but when they proved their worth, we all developed a respect for them, not just as 'artists', but as people. so, to read all of these silly derisive remarks about them just becuase pj is unpopular now, well it just seems lame, ya know? the posters still stand, pj or no pj. phish or no phish. that's my point.

actually, i've touched pj. i did a poster for them through the ames bros. the pay was so-so (none of that thousand you mention. nobdy pays a thou for a poster anymore). phish approached me, too, except i said no - but not because i hate the band (which i do), but because they wanted to screw me (i won't go into deatials, but it was one of the worst offers i've ever been made. right up there with swatch). people who only do work for hip cool bands they like will suffer the indignity of starvation. trust me on this. i've done just that for over 25 years, and i've gotten for it is a lotta smart ass wise cracks form people on this site.
the reason i'm not going to flatstock is because i'm too broke. i can't even afford rent this month. that's also why i'm selling my personal stash of posters on ebay right now.
this is what 'indie cred' buys you. whole lotta nuttin'. you get all this respect and you're still a fool.
ames did the correct thing. so what if a bunch of other poster artists don't like pj's music? i mean really, who cars what we think?

Steve HSend Steve H a message :   Ames weren't wrong to turn pearl jam down, i mean,they aren't great,i don't like em either but they aren't as evil as some one like n sync or something, at least they started out poor and worked for a bit. but like you say, ames have got lumped with them now because no one else wants to do them, which is a shame because they do shit hot posters but they're all for a band that no one else will touch, because of indie ideals. there's selling out as in doing a poster for a band u dont like for a few thousand or whatever and theres selling out when u don't need a few extra thousand, theres a difference.   2002-08-03 20:54:30

chloe, imagine you're starting out in this stuff and a cousin of yours, let's call him eddie, comes up to you and sez, i want you and your friends to do all my posters for my band and i want to pay you well and that way keep it all in the family. now, imagine they're (at that moment) the biggest, most popular band in the world (be honest, you all liked them at first. no-one is innocent when it comes to pop music. we all fall for it over and over. today's nobel hero is tomorrow's putz.) now, let's be honest, you would say no? what about your 'indie cred'? what about your personal taste? what about your family ties? what about that fact they'll hire somebody else you compete with if they don't hire you?
this is the situation ames found themselves in, and they chose the correct path. so, you don't approve of their music anymore, and who does, really? did they make the wrong choice?
the only problem they've got now is to start over attracting newer clients, but with one of the fucking strongest portfolios on this whole site. isn't that a shame!

truth is they've done lotsa work for a whole buttload of other clients, but the pj stuff has sorta ruined their 'indie cred' on the hipster circuit, ya know? whatya do? the guy's yer damn brother, and he's helped you get some real dough, and at the same time gets you so pigeonholed that everybody makes fun of you.

pearl jam has great posters (even if they don't deserve them) because they hire amesbros to do them, and they're very good. the sad thing is that nobody else will hire them. that's because seattle really really sux. and nobody outside of a few designer snobs and the people of gigposters know them from adam. you see, quality has nothing to do with commercial success. honest.
