Hurtsmile - Retrogrenade

Recommended Posts

I guess that song is okay-ish, kind of. But why are they still together and recording? The debut was terrible and this is sadly just a project that needed to vanish quietly. That said, no ill feelings towards the guys and good luck to them. I hope this album is a lot better than the debut, though I'm not sure I'll listen to find out. This song does sound better than anything I recall off the debut, though.

To be honest, I didn't even listen to it. Most people trashed it so bad, I didn't bother.

If you liked Extreme's last album (I loved it) then you won't mind it at all.

Really? Then I should give it a try.

I say Extreme's last is much better than Hurtsmile

It is better for sure, but they don't sound that much different. I wish Extreme would quit fucking around and put out a new cd. Not to mention all their demo's from before they got signed are out there. I'd love to have a mastered version of those.

And how are we playing this? Are we acknowledging that Extreme's last album was the equivalent of dying via method of crushed testicles, or are we pretending it was okay? Because for me, it was terrible beyond horrors, and yes, Hurtsmile was even worse. Very ugly situation all round.

Their last studio album ranks in the top 2 or 3 for me. I actually only disliked maybe one track.

Yeah, don't mind me too much. I like Extreme's first two albums, though neither of them reside in my collection as I sold both of them. So even in their prime they didn't really do that much for me. Everything since, though, has been a f*cking nightmare for me. To suggest that 'III' might be the best post 'Porno' disc they ever recorded... wow.I just hope they don't use that as a compliment. ;)

Divided opinions. Personally thought both the debut Hurtsmile and last Extreme were pretty equal, so would look forward to either releasing new material in this case Hurtsmile wins. Kinda recognize the aquired taste clause but gets my vote.

 

Can't wait!

Of fuck, that is dreadful. I think I will, without hesitation, take Russ' word on this one and not even think about giving it ear time. Seriously, that is soooooo bad.

    • Brilliant album...oh how I pine for a follow up 
    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!

    • One day to the show. Acoustic in a venue that looks like somebodies oversized front room.  Really should be a great night.
