whale - we care / all disco dance must end in broken bones / singles and rarities

we care released in 1995
all disco dance must end in broken bone released in 1998

i remember seeing the band's video for the song "hobo humpin' slobo babe" on 120 minutes back in the day

and i was hooked

it was their singer cia was her lollipop...and her braces

but...if it was the boys wearing tin foil shorts that did it for you...hey man...i'm not here to judge

and i remember scouring music stores for this album...and at the time all i could come up with was a cassingle for the song "hobo humpin' slobo babe" (remember those?)...and i kept bugging employees at the local music store about the album...and finally they got it (a year later) copy...and they held it for me just in case someone else picked it up (which i highly doubt would've happened...this was a little too out there for the kids in said town)

the only way i could describe this is a more upbeat sounding portishead with some punk rock bjork thrown in...but from sweden

and if you're looking for some bass to make that trunk's all here (provided by trip hop fella tricky)...just listen to "electricity" and "tryzasnice"

and yeah...this is a little different than anything else put on this blog...but dammit...she's cute and you will listen to her!

and you know...seeing as how i'm a nice guy...i'm going to give you their other album as well...because need them both

don't just do

these were the only two full lengths that were released in america (they'd released multiple albums back in the homeland under the name southern whale cult)

on all disco dance must end in broken bones they tone it down just a little...they've still got the portishead thing going on...but they're also massively attacking the pixies garbage (see what i did there?)

and if anything...they were friends with steve albini...that's gotta mean something...right?

we care

all disco dance must end in broken bone

and seeing as how well this band was remembered by most of you...i'm gonna toss some singles and such on the table

and this...find out:

I can't even BEGIN to tell you how long a search I have been on for both of these albums. I could not find them in any stores, no one has this band on the internet for D/L. You are a God! Thanks, ipecac! I had these albums back in the day, and one of my scanless room-mates stole them. You have made my day!!!!

roomates do that

eat the last of the cheese...put the empty milk carton back in the refrigerator...pee on your pillow..."borrow" all of your good albums...

and i know exactly what you'd find a snuff movie before you'd find these

Not to pop your bubble, but these are the only Whale albums.

Southern Whale Cult is somebody else.
