They were one of the main reasons why my friends and I took the trip to Chicago for the T&G anniversary. The first song alone (She Said) made the trip worthwhile.

Mary had a little drug problem is at moments my favorite song of all time.

I apologize for asking this in the Scratch Acid thread, but if anyone knows what guitar/model of guitar Duane Denison used for Goat and Liar, I would appreciate if someone could fill me in.

I always wanted to know what stuff (guitars/amps/effects) Brett Bradford was using in Scratch Acid. I like his guitar tone a lot. I've seen a Les Paul during the original timeperiod in pictures, saw a Strat for the reunion stuff, some class of head and I think a Marshall cabinet during the original time in pictures, and have heard a flanger on at least some songs ("She Said" comes to mind), but other than that, I'm blank. How'd he get it?

Oh, and again: This band was awesome.

This was the band that turned me on to punk rock. Before I heard Scratch Acid, I was still into music but not interested in making it.

Within about a week or so of hearing them I was playing bass in a band - the first time I played an instrument was the first day of band practice. They had a pretty big impact on my life.

Really wish I could have caught this band at T&G25. "Owner's Lament" in particular will just kill you. Beautiful.

Airtight case for reunion shows. Just incredible.

A real favorite. All the parts in this band worked so well together. Muscular, precise drumming. Loose, manically noisy guitar w/pronounced surf, rockabilly, and metal influences. Memorable walking basslines and grooves. Off-the-wall singer wailing something simultaneously horrible and funny.

Why yes, it's a bit derivative of PiL and the Birthday Party. But so's your mother. The first mini-LP is just flawless. A really perfect document, I reach for it more often than any Jesus Lizard vinyl (which I also like very much). It's infinitely more reckless sounding and full of tension.

The other two releases have their highs and low (Berserker being the better of the two) but man, that first one just nails it. Wish I were old enough to have seen this band live. Missed them by a couple of years.

Brett Bradford=huge guitar influence for me.

Not crap, no waffles b/c even the lesser material is interesting.

"Owner's Lament" was my first introduction to Scratch Acid, in 1985 I think. Earlier that year a friend had persuaded me to start tuning into the University of Alberta radio station, CJSR, which is where I heard the song. Still, after many years, my favorite Scratch Acid composition.

Yeah, last time I listened to The Greatest Gift I realised my favourite Scratch Acid moments are the ones with strings. So pretty and so strange.

Also ever since getting into the U-Men, I don't think they sound like the Birthday Party as much as I used to.

Although Yow ads another dimension to that band, the guitar playing in that band is the thing that does it for me too. You can realize that if you can maybe get your hands/ears on early pre Yow demos. That guitar is THERE!

The Greatest Gift has one of the best intros that I have ever heard. It has that surf vibe that I can't stop shaking my head to it.

And the U-Men! Of course! It was on the very same radio show that played "Owners Lament" that I heard "Clubs" for the first time. Probably like 3 songs apart from each other. I had taped that particular broadcast and listened to it for months, which is why I can remember this from 25 years ago and not what my last credit card purchase was.

That sounds like one amazing radio show. The U-Men were a great, great band. I wonder if they have a poll...
