Superchunk - Tossing Seeds (Singles 89-91)


Label: Merge
Year: 1992

For those that keep up with this blog (hi Mom!), you may have previously been aware that I take things of North Carolinian origin quite seriously. Bordering on unnecessarily serious. Reckless even.
You may have also been previously aware that in my frequent (also unnecessary, and reckless) compulsion to rank the musical output of the Tarheel State, Superchunk gets left out of the top echelon of bands, the rarefied air I keep reserved for many of their contemporaries (hearts to you, Archers of Loaf, Raymond Brake, Polvo, Small, Pipe, Erectus Monotone, and on and on).
You are paying attention? Right? Mom?
So, what is it about Superchunk that they are can't quite crack the illustrious bowels of my personal favorites? Are they bad?
No. Of course not (and my bowels are pretty great too..if you're curious). Superchunk, had they lived in some other college town, anywhere else, would have been "the best band in town" (except maybe in Madison, WI, or Athens, GA, or Austin, TX, or...), and they would find themselves rubbing elbows with the Top Ten bands of that particular town's nerdy-ass bloggers list. They were a good band. They played fun, amped up, punky pop songs (please note: not pop-punk, but punky pop...there is a real distinction with actual consequences). Their shows were fun, and loud, and energetic.They were a good band.
And I want to give them their due, here. Which is why I offer up an anthology of some of their first records, conveniently collected for easier consumption, including the "hit", 'Slack Motherfucker'. Which incidentally, is a legit "hit".

Hail NC indie rock.

Dr Williams,his medicine was extremely helpful to me. I have had tinnitus for 7 years now , and my doctor told me to have a tinnitus sugary . I am so glad I have found Dr Williams medicine (as I was surfing the net for a solution and saw a recommendation for it on a women's health forum early this year). I have felt so empowered by the knowledge you have given me and I quickly self diagnosed the individual cause of my tinnitus and armed with your clear instructions, I was finally able to beat this monster, in less than 4 weeks of using dr Williams medication. 9 weeks before the tinnitus surgery was due, I asked for a scan and it was clear that my tinnitus were gone,you can also email him on drwilliams098675@gmail.com for help.

Thank you, thank you , thank you. dr williams "

CURE TO TINNITUS WITHOUT SIDE EFFECT: I was diagnosed with tinnitus and ears watts. My tinnitus hurt so bad that I was usually in bed for about 8 hours and soreness killers (even prescription strength) don't stop the loudness (except to knock me out) even if I take triple the dosage. Every night that come to pass it always louder and louder and all the doctors would do is monitor it, prescribe me countless pain control pills and pain medication with no positive result. until recently I contacted a Doctor who put an end to this problem. If you are having problem with tinnitus or any ears problem contact Dr. William for advice and possible solution without any side effect (drwilliams098675@gmail.com)
