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 berg...it 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)..one 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 funk...it'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 frankly...you need them both
don't argue...you 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?
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 now...watch this...find out:
