Is Chris really the only dude between him and Todd that writes songs about Veganism? I mean, I know everyone in the band is vegan, I just am struggling to think of a Todd or John K. song that has to do with not eating animals.

I know Todd has said his piece on why he thinks eating animals is sloppy in the liner notes for Supporting Caste.

Fuck, I might just listen to their last four albums tonight.

I saw them live in the mid-nineties and picked up a copy of Less Talk, More Rock at the merch table. It's been one of my go-to records when I want to sing-along to something in the car ever since.

Not crap.

Todd at the end of that video. Guy is so 110%. That ugly bass and MAD magazine T-shirt and gym shorts. The greatest.

Funny, this almost fits me to a tee.

Propagandhi basically changed my life. I don't listen to them as much as I'd like to anymore, to be honest, but they always kick my ass when I do.

Sounds like they're not seeking a new full member so much as a new touring guitarist? It would be fun if they got a real hesher.

hey people! well, the day we have been in denial about for years has finally arrived and starting this September (2015), our beloved Beaver won’t be able to join us on the road to melt faces with his 6 string stack attack anymore. it is a sad reality, but let’s turn these frowns upside down and whip this into an exciting opportunity! Do you play guitar? Are you familiar with our music? Have you felt like you’ve been living in a dingbat-clown-idiot society since you were a little kid and always hoped your real parents from Rigel 7 would come rescue you? Well, then get at us ASAP! Women are strongly encouraged to apply!

Thank God it's only for a tour. I'd really miss Beave.

I missed them last time they were in Brisbane, man, I was crushed! I mean, there was no way I could see them, being 16 at the time. Man, I've never wanted to be older so hard.

I've come to the conclusion, after many years of Propagandhi in my ears, that Today's Empires... is definitely the best Propagandhi album. I love all their music, but TETA just slams, drives, grinds, kills harder than any of the other albums. The solo at the end of "Purina" is probably the greatest solo I have ever heard! And "Mate Ka Moris Ukun Rasik An" is the best album opener I've heard. And jesus, "New Homes For Idle Hands" slays, as does "Ladies' Night", "Fuck the Border"...

"Iteration" is also face-meltingly good.

FUCK I LOVE THIS BAND

My brother loves TETA and it's 100% his favorite as well! I'm more into Potemkin City Limits as my all time favorite, but that's only by a bee's dick. They're all perfect and great in their own way.

I just fucking LOVE PCL for it's rawer qualities. Still a three piece at the time, nice but less-flattering recording style, Jesus H. Chris' vocals/lyrics hit me 100% (they always do, just this time around more than others), and the songs are the best batch of tunes I have heard the boys write up to that point.

I'd like to repeat that I can barely choose which one is best. It's too close, but for me it's PCL.

PCL was actually the first one I bought! I think I'd rate it, maybe below TETA by a bee's dick as well. The songs are fucking amazing. I feel Todd's songs are a tad weaker on this one, which is probably the only thing bringing it down. It's an odd album, but I love it. TETA just rocks that little bit harder imo.

Dude, all of their shit is amazing. Even the ham-fisted attempt with How To Clean Everything. I mean, they've actually gotten better! How many other bands have gotten better as they went on?

You, me, and Steve V. should eventually get together and start an obviously Propagandhi-inspired band.

"New Homes For Idle Hands" is probably my favorite track off of TETA haha

I'm still really into I-Spy and am kind of obsessed with Todd's vocals/lyrics in both I-Spy and Propagandhi.

Not only have I read it, I've read it about 5 times!

Steve V. wrote:Potemkin is my favorite with TETA close behind it. It was odd reading that PCL was the album which almost broke the band up. One thing about that record is I can't see three dudes pulling many of those songs off live. That record seemed cooked (to perfection) in the studio, whereas TETA was a bit more raw and road-tested. I think the despair of PCL is what draws me to it the most. It's a really dark record, completely cynical.

Todd's songs are never weak if considered simply as singular songs, but sometimes, on a record, they are too abrupt. There's always one Todd song on every record since he's made with Propagandhi that sticks out a bit sorely. On TETA, it was "New Homes for Idle Hands," PCL: Superbowl Patriot, Supporting Caste: This is Your Life, Failed States: Hadron Collision. All of those songs are excellent, but in the context of the records that contain them, they affect the whole. Not necessarily in a bad way, especially to someone who loves everything Propagandhi does, but maybe to some people.

Then there is the one-two punch on PCL of "Bringer" and "Cut into the Earth." Those songs are masterpieces.


I would say that "Ordinary People Do Fucked Up Things" sticks out more than "New Homes". It sounds like a different band, like a grindcore group or something.

It took a while for "Bringer" and "Cut" to grow on me, which is probably why I think PCL took a while. As I said, it was the first Propagandhi album I bought, I'd never heard it before. I listened to How To Clean Everything a couple of times before, and it was like a different band.

Supporting Caste was my favourite for a while, and I suppose all the songs are still great, but I think TETA just rocks the hardest. Even with that horrible tone, it's just the most brilliant collection of songs.

I actually really started to appreciate "Bringer" after seeing this live vid, where Chris sings and it's in E flat.

Very true.

Tim from Tym Guitars (or James from Violent Soho, who worked there, I don't remember) said Propagandhi might have played Tym Guitars, but they didn't, which was quite sad, as I could have gone.

Next time Propagandhi comes here, I'll be 18 at least. Unless they come before May 12, which would very much piss me off.
