Seaweed - Kid Candy ep
Label: Sub Pop
Digging through some cds this evening looking for music to load onto the ole ipod I came across this little gem I had completely forgotten about. Not that I'd forgotten Seaweed, I had merely forgotten this three song "promo" that I no doubt ended up with from WUOG radio station in Athens, Georgia. Seaweed actually stays in fairly routine rotation around these parts, especially the "Weak" album, which is my personal favorite, and every time it plays I lecture my children on (among other things) Seaweed's superiority to Jawbreaker, and how I can't understand the appeal of Jawbreaker when there are such better bands out there, i.e. Seaweed. They don't seem to really "get it" yet, they're more into Usher and Katy Perry, not so much the Seaweeds of the world.
Fun Fact: Instead of loading Seaweed onto my ipod I ended up putting Pantera "Far Beyond Driven" instead. Weird? No. I listened to it whilst exercising tonight it it slayed! Hail Dimebag!
