McLusky - Mcluskyism

Label: Too Pure
Year: 2006

Here is a nice neat package of Mclusky music for you, conveniently organized into three volumes: A Sides, B Sides, and...uh...C Sides. Obviously, the A Sides are the "hits" (as they were), so that's probably the place to start for the uninitiated, and if further guidance is required, then I would direct you to "Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues" as a good jumping off point. It's one of those "perfect songs" that you are always bummed ends when it ends. The B Sides will of course, get into your "deeper cuts" from the band's catalog, and those range from hardcore blister to lo-fi indie rock to catchy post punk to scratchy noise rock, most all delivered successfully, if not as immediately digestible as those "hits" from the first disc. The C Sides are previously unreleased, alternate takes, or live versions of songs from the other two discs which are fun for fans, but probably superfluous for people with lives outside of Mclusky listening parties (even though the song "Reformed Arsonist Seeks Child Bride" is worth the price of admission itself).
Feel free to indulge if you're into: Nirvana, Shellac, Pixies, Qui, Sebadoh, Wire, Rapeman, and bad attitudes.

Thanks Gray,

Can't believe I'd never listened to these before.
Any band with a track called Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues deserves to be investigated further & I'm glad I did.
