I searched and the only topic for this band was a "want to get" thread. So, here goes. what do you all think of this band? I gotta say I really enjoyed the first cd. Dogs gave me the needed sound of those classic D2 albums. I also have the live cd and at one point in time I had the live VHS. man, do I wish I still had that. It was very low budget filming but still worth having. what are your fav songs? Missing you is one that sticks out a lot as well as See The Light.

Two very good studio albums, with Ted still at his vocal prime. I did own the live album, but really couldn't find a reason to justify keeping it, so it went. Like any live album of a good band it was decent, but I'd never bother spinning it after the first time.

 

Essential tracks for me are:

 

(From 'Dogs'):

 

'Think of U'

'Life and Times'

'Missing You'

'Mrs. Frankenstein'

'Don't Mean Shit'

 

And 'Believe in your heart' would be next in line.

 

(From 'Disappearing Inc.'):

 

'Lately'

'Anisha'

 

And the valid reworkings of the songs on the debut.

 

A few of their songs - sadly a lot of the best ones from 'Dogs' - did drag on pointlessly towards the end, but there was really some great stuff on the two discs. In all honesty, they probably could have waited and just recorded the one full disc of great songs, editing stuff like 'Life and times' and 'Don't mean shit' to just feature the actual songs without the bullshit, but they're 2 CDs well worth having anyway.

I like both studio albums, and the live album is worth having for the studio track, See the light, which is one of my fave songs by them.

Off of Dogs I'd certainly pick my faves as Think of you & Believe in your heart. And from DI I'd go with Missing you (prefer this version) & Man alive.

 

I dont think there are any bad songs on their albums, but those were certainly the standouts for me.

 

Have to say, I always used to laugh at the cover of the live album as the tank was running over the monkey from the cover of Screw it, which was certainly Ted giving a big FU to D2 at the time.

You forgot Man Alive,The Only Ones, Shell Shocked and The Song. Great album and the production is way above the debut which sounded like shit but had awesome songs. Great band...would have loved to heard more from them.

man, the lyrics "hindsight can be 20/20. looking back it all seems so clear" has been stuck in my head all day. I thought it was a Danger Danger song so I was trying to go through them and thought, maybe it is Bone Machine. finally I found it. those 2 lines were all that I could think of as lyrics, so those 2 lines drove me crazy today.

I just grabbed a mint copy of Dogs from Amazon for like $7. Dis. Inc goes for decent money these days but I found a good copy on Amamzon for $16...unfortunately the seller has not shipped and doesn't reply to emails so I suppose I will start over. Wish I still had my Japan Press from years back :(

My dissapearing Inc is in good condition except for when Ted signed it last year he drew a plane flying into each of the twin towers and I about shit when he did it. I don't plan on ever selling it and I guees it's one of a kind. It also says "To Wes, oops my ESP strikes again". I'm assuming he must of got shit for having those falling down on the cover 5 years before it actually happened.

I think its on Wikipedia, it points out that the album cover was eerily prophetic.

It may have even been why the album got deleted.

 

Not as bad as the Dream Theater live scenes from NY disc that had them on fire and I think that one came out the day of or a week before 9/11.

Of course the all time classic has to be Lynyrd Skynyrd - Street survivors.

Nothing to do with the twin towers, but certainly eerily prophetic for them.

I remember that, funny as hell when he did that!

 

I just picked up the live Bone Machine cd yesterday on Amazon. I had some credit card points built up so it ended up costing me $1.30 total.

It's awesome how they allow you to use those points on there. :party421:

How do you do it? I should have a fuckload of 'em.

The Amazon points? I have the Chase Amazon card and up until a couple weeks ago the only way you could redeem them was to go thru the credit card company. But suddenly Amazon now has the points listed and when you are checking out there should be an option to use your points when you are choosing payment method.

 

It's nice because at work when we need to order printer ink or other office supplies I just put it on my Amazon card, the boss cuts me a check when it arrives and I keep the points. :beerbang:

    • I don't know how "firefighters" are defined or utilized in Australia vs. here in the USA, but presumably they are included because as first responders they may be called upon to rescue or render medical attention to people, and you wouldn't want the first responders to be giving Covid to them, or worse having a situation where either the recipient is forced into a position of declining medical assistance or the firefighters reluctant to render it. I actually agree with the mandatory vaccination policy in this case. 
    • In case anyone might have forgotten what a fucken dump Australia is right now, in a country that was ravaged by bushfires two years ago, volunteer firefighters are now required to be vaccinated to be able to provide their service. Many will not, so in an occupation where we were flying in firefighters from the US and Canada etc. at the peak of our issues to help out, we are standing volunteers down because they won't get vaccinated. Because christ almighty knows, that the last thing we want is for firefighters to be giving the fires they fight covid-19.  https://thewest.com.au/news/coronavirus/volunteer-fire-and-rescue-service-members-included-in-mandatory-vaccination-mandate-c-4564212 That story only covers WA, but I saw an interview today with a guy from NSW and as far as I understand it's a country-wide requirement?  I honestly just don't have the words to describe my thoughts on matters like this. Are we actually the dumbest fucking country on planet earth, or is shit like this happening in other countries?  Imagine honestly trying to excuse actions like this if we had fires like we did a couple of years ago and able-bodied, willing and experienced firefighters were sitting at home watching houses burn on TV because their stupid fucking cunt government thought that forcing a pointless needle into their arm was more important than the work these people do. Unbe-fucking-lievable.  
    • Here's my ability to read and interpret information. You say that you no longer teach your kids to respect police. You seem open in your statement "Fuck the pigs" You may say that in front of them. If you don't I'm sure they will pick up on it. Kids learn from their parents. I'm happy with my interpretation. It's sad that people can generalise so vigorously. I would put forward that a MASSIVE percentage of cops are good, if not great cops. we're looking at only a very few cops here who overstep and gain a lot of press. I know 3 people who have applied for the force. One got in, one didn't, one is in the process now. Their requirements are extremely high, and not adhering to just one part of the process 100% equals a fail. In the case of the person who didn't get in, she got through all the psych, fitness, etc, but didn't come across as confident enough in a phone interview, so that was it. Cops are legends.
    • New song 'Power Of Will'.    
    • Ok Cody, It was 41 vs 330. It's now 63 vs 335, so we're making ground, but you need to fire up and make some contributions. It's your thread and that's what you're hanging by at the moment with the big guy.
    • George W Bush's Grandfather (Aleister) got it. Charlie didn't get it, but his heart was in the right place.       
    • A little sumthin sumthin from the coolest band east of the Rockies.    Show them some well deserved lovin' fellas!   FuZZrd thanks readers w/an advance download of “Pins & Needles” from their debut LP Near Life Experience being released globally December 10, 2021. From Steve Karas (w/slight edits): FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 3, 2021 FuZZrd's debut studio album: Near Life Experience available December 10, 2021 Download “PINS & NEEDLES” Here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/ Album teaser video: https://bit.ly/FuZZrdAlbumTeaser Pre-order: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com/ Upcoming live show at Minneapolis’ The Southern Theatre December 11, 2021 –  https://southerntheater.org/ Minneapolis, MN – FuZZrd would like to share their gratitude to the sites readers and presents a free download of the song “Pins & Needles” in advance of the band’s debut studio album Near Life Experience which is being released on December 10, 2021. To access the free download or preview the song, click here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/.   FuZZrd guitarist and vocalist Brett Petrusek shares, “Pins and Needles is a personal favorite. It's a song about loss and the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that can often ensue. If you've ever felt so wound up that your skin is crawling you may relate. For me, it's sonically intriguing, it's mysterious and the chorus hits just right. It's wickedly fun to play on guitar, too!" The debut album can be pre-ordered at a discounted price here: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com. The band will perform the day following release day alongside Johnny O' Neil (of Dare Force fame) and up and comers, The Issue at The Southern Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. Tickets for the appearance can be purchased by visiting https://southerntheater.org/. Petrusek reflects, “I'm so very proud of what we have accomplished this past year. It's gratifying to see and hear Near Life Experience in its completed form. It's a powerhouse and definitely fits in the category of ‘album I've always wanted to make’. The chemistry with our producer Jeremy Tappero continued to flourish and we all grew as musicians. I love the songs and sound we've created. It's fresh, and new, and noticeably doesn't chase trends. It stays true to its heavy rock roots. It's so awesome to be a part of FuZZrd coming to life, playing live shows, and sharing our music. The whole of what we have created is truly rewarding. I'm totally grateful to have this group." Bassist and background vocalist Robert Berg states, “Substance of structure. A collection of songs that in my view captures what's truly important for fans of multigenerational hard rock. I love the upfront guitars and inspired solos. There's a maturity in the vocal melodies that catapults the meaningful lyrical content. It was inspiring to witness. Every member brought what was necessary; when necessary. I believe we just barely dipped our toes into what's possible with our current guitar duo's musical chemistry. Special, special, special thanks to Producer Jeremy Tappero. I tell him all the time that my favorite moments in life are sitting in the chair next to him and laying it down. He's a true mentor who seemingly always knows what's right for the band. Brett is quite forward thinking and never short of ideas. FuZZrd will build on the experience and continue to make the rock pound." Guitarist and background vocalist Eric Fairchild offers, “Discovering the chemistry and camaraderie of FuZZrd has been the highlight of a truly chaotic year and a half. Being able to connect and collaborate on new music has been so fulfilling. I’m really proud of the work we’ve put in, and the album that has emerged as a result. The songs on Near Life Experience have been able to capture so many feelings that have been otherwise difficult to express. Plus, it’s always fun to tear it up on the guitar! I’m thrilled to get these songs in front of audiences, and continue to build on what we’ve started." Drummer Scott Savage adds, "I could not be happier with the new record; and it could not have happened without everyone’s dedication and hard work. It’s so gratifying to have this finished product and be able to share with everyone! I’m so proud of my band mates and what we have accomplished. We are definitely fired up about what the future holds for us!" For more information contact: Steve Karas SKH Music -  skaras@skhmusic.com
