Classics like Alice and chains, Soundgarden,Janes Addiction
Mewski_: OOOWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! Rock music now kinda all sound the same! Except the Exceptions of course.
savagehenry: all great bands, ive seen them all many many times(sometimes playin the same gig) but i must say seeing janes addiction for the Nothings Shocking tour in NYC(1989/90, i think maybe at Webster Hall?) was one of the best shows ive ever seen, Perry could still sing, and dave navarro was at his best, just explosive shit, i saw on tv recently that Voddoo Lounge tour reunion they did, just pathetic, i had to turn it off half way through, so lame, it was like watching a cover band do janes addiction, night and day!
Mewski_: Bummer Savage..I know Perry is touring again but don't know about Jane's Addiction tho..they Lost their Mojo apparently but I can still listen to their cd and be WOW, they RoCk!!! lol
savagehenry: oh, you are bringing me back! such a great album, everything they did after siamese dream was shit (in my opinion). in sept 1991(i think?) i went to go see the Chili Peppers concert at Roseland Ballroom in new york city, they were touring with Blood Sugar Sy% Magik album and the opening acts were two almost totally unknown bands at the time one was the Smashing Pumkings(Gish tour) who i had heard of at the time and the other was Pearl Jam(Ten tour) who nobody had heard of really, it was one band after the other all trying to out-do the last act! what a fckin show!
syluslad: check out kerbdog, irish grunge band, they were there in the 90s. well ahead of their time
Mewski_: By the way Nirvana came from Punk , the Pixies to be exact. Sonic Youth is their own sound.
Drummer_Man: Kurt Cobain got the idea from his girlfriends perfume or something called teen spirit. He wrote on the wall (name of his gf) smells like teen spirit.
Mewski_: yeah the name but the idea grunge was adopted from bands like the pixies. the style of starting off in a more somber note then BANG! then Loud!
Here you go:
