Together they were Here Is Jan - Latterman - .We Are Still Alive (Vinyl and lemon, rose and thorn. In the process, they fused hardcore punk and hippie pop, basically inventing the 90's. It all started innocuously enough, with the live album Land Speed Record not giving away too much of what was to come. There was no indication at all that the hardcore thrash band behind such ditties as "Punch Drunk" and "Let's Go Die" would produce the bitter, heartfelt classic "Everything Falls Apart.
Goodmorning recorded Metal Circuswhich was meant to be an LP but due to shortages in the recording budget and power outages in the studio, ended up being a long EP. It consisted mostly of Mould's hateful rantings, but Hart's two contributions were the best songs on the release.
Other than Hart's songs, Metal Circus showcased for the first time Mould's molten lava guitar, a Flying V played at treblydistorted levels to give the effect of both melodicism and meltdown. It sounds unlike any other guitar tone I've ever heard, and it's on full display on what some consider their zenith, the sprawling Zen Arcade.
An ambitious concept album that went from conception to creation in less than four days and featured the story of a disillusioned runaway trying to find solace in cults and drugs before giving up and going home. It's an emotional gun in the mouth and a work of art that leaves most of its contemporaries in miles of dust. They had spent so many months occupying the same house, jamming hours a day while Hart dropped acid every 24 hours and they all gobbled speed that they had formed this cracked- windshield rapport that allowed the most minuscule of idea to blossom into fully formed songs that modern day hacks are still copping and dudes like me are still boggled by years later.

While I'm going to leave off here there's gotta be some story to tell laterjust trust me that even more awesome music is to Here Is Jan - Latterman - .We Are Still Alive (Vinyl.

This little diversion was inspired by finding out that there's a good chance they'll be releasing the footage from the Ramones new year's eve show in Aficionados of da brudders will know that this was released as the record It's Aliveaka my single favorite record of all time.
Lord knows how I haven't worn the grooves out of that thing I've played it so damn much. It's everything I love most about rock 'n' roll - fast tempos, chainsaw guitars, catchy pop melodies, four-on-the-floor drumming, and stoopid lyrics written by smart, funny yahoos. To me, It's Alivewhich features selections from their classic first three albums played at blitzkrieg tempos, is the gold standard for rock music. It's the culmination of everything great about rock music up until that point, i.
