RE: Breakup Music | from electro gooseMar 26 2005 - 18:24

Jeeeesus, pantsy, ya nailed it. Thank fuck. That's just saved me a thousand in shrinks fees.
But, in turn, surely the same question has to be hurled at you, for are you not guilty of the same? Huh?
Now you cured me, I can help.
I have a wet sponge and a charged electrode with your name on it. Strap yerself in and let's go!

RE: Breakup Music | from Pantsy McDoodlesMar 26 2005 - 13:12

Question: is electro goose a small-membered keyboard warrior with a severe case of Joe Pesci syndrome whose self esteem is so frighteningly low that the only thing that can temporarily make him feel okay is by hurling insults at a person he does not even know, if only to momentarily replace his crippling feeling of self-loathing by a fleeting moment of a (pseudo) power-complex?

RE: Breakup Music | from electro gooseMar 26 2005 - 07:22

Question: Is Codreaneu a pedantic dickwad?

"World should remember that religion Islam is a religion of Peace Security, Fraternity and Love. We Muslims are not concerned with any sort of Terrorism; Terrorists are only using the name of Islam."

Question: Was Mohammad a Muslim?

i appreciate your help though.

RE: Breakup Music | from ckMar 30 2004 - 19:40

Check out Magnus Sveningson's solo disc, Righteous Boy. He's The Cardigan's bass player. It's great, too. Darker than you might expect. Nina has a solo disc as well. Sounds a lot like Aimee Mann.

RE: Breakup Music | from RossMar 30 2004 - 12:34

Neither did I. I just happened to come across the CD last spring. You wouldn't believe it was them if you heard it. Scandinavian hurtin' songs.

RE: Breakup Music | from cMar 30 2004 - 12:21

I had no idea the Cardigans were still around.

RE: Breakup Music | from stemsMar 30 2004 - 06:54

Teenage Wildlife. David Bowie. It's on Scary Monsters.

RE: Breakup Music | from RossMar 30 2004 - 06:34

I'm not sure if anyone heard last year's Cardigan's release "Long Gone Before Daylight", but the whole thing is a break-up album. I believe that Nina Persson went through a break-up during or before recording the album...

Anyway, its super well done, and pretty freaking devastating.

RE: Breakup Music | from susan331Mar 29 2004 - 22:27

Deaner: The psyche is in surprisingly hardy shape, believe it or not. Nice of you to ask. Part of me's perturbed at being reduced to a notch on another bedpost. But a bigger part says fuck him and the blowup doll he rode in on.

The Radar Bros, who we saw at the Caucus in Austin on 3/18, are on Merge Records here in the Yoo Ess: http://www.mergerecords.com. (Very nice people, the Merge folks, and generous with the drink tickets too.) Their latest is called ...And the Surrounding Mountains, if you don't have it already. It came out last summer I think.

Mplaster: My resident Dr. Feelgood is the biggest Ween fan on the planet, and I've been exposed to more of them than I ever imagined. Right now The Mollusk is the one I'm most attached to. How can you not love a song called "Waving My Dick In the Wind"?

NoMeansNapster: Thanks, but I have a Mac. :-(

How's your psyche susie?
When did you see the radars? Any idea what they are up to these days?

RE: Breakup Music | from susan331Mar 25 2004 - 12:49

Unfortunately no-- I didn't see half the things I'd wanted (Big Star, The Posies, Mission of Burma, Brian Jonestown Massacre, the Bloodshot showcase). It's very hard since there's so much going on in such a short period of time.

We did see Radar Bros, TV on the Radio (much better live than on that first EP), CocoRosie (yecch), American Music Club (they were amazing-- I spoke to Mark and he says they have about 18 songs now for a new album), some Japanese bluegrass band whose name I can't recall right now, Now It's Overhead, Bettie Serveert, I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness, Glenn Tilbrook, IQU, Robyn Hitchcock (he talked at length about "micro-pets" like gerbils, rats and bats small enough to fit into a cigarette packet and covered "Stayin' Alive"), The Rosebuds, The Cynics, and I think that's it. Summer Hymns, Paper Lions and a whole mess of Athens bands played our shindig on Saturday afternoon, and they were cool too.

I wish Napster was still extant in its original state so I could download and sample everyone's recommendations. Dammit, dammit!

RE: Breakup Music | from brianMar 24 2004 - 12:41

Susan, did you get a chance to see Centro-Matic/South San Gabriel/Will Johnson in Austin?

RE: Breakup Music | from susan331Mar 24 2004 - 12:35

Definitely. We live in a very couple-centric (and breeder-centric) society. It's pretty gross, especially when you consider how unutterably dysfunctional most relationships are. And the more I think about who and what I was prior to that relationship, the more I'm looking forward to getting back to that.

Last week in TX I met Simon Raymonde (yes, I had to struggle to keep from pissing my pants) and he told me he was in the midst of splitting from his wife of 24 years. So I'm not feeling quite so alone now.

RE: Breakup Music | from WilliamMar 24 2004 - 00:55

Being by yourself is cool. Too much is made of being in a relationship. I enjoy both though obviously the transition can be a bitch.

Ha! Thanks, Yngwie (or "Wangy" as we used to call you...)

Frusciante is a good guitar player, yes. But I have heard some of his solo stuff and as for the SONGS, they are generic and lifeless.

Hendrix was a guitar master who could pen great songs and sometimes great lyrics. Frusciante is a guitar wank who tries to write songs as vehicles for endless guitar grandstanding. How dull.

RE: Breakup Music | from Yngwie MalmsteenMar 21 2004 - 15:33

RE: Breakup Music | from adamMar 21 2004 - 14:18

ron's right. Frusciante is an amazinf guitarist. One of the best of all time.

RE: Breakup Music | from ronMar 20 2004 - 09:16

RE: Breakup Music | from ale xniedtMar 18 2004 - 23:59

pretty stoned right now and sure makes some funny reading. especialy when you're all nice and apologetic to michel about being rude and then start dissing a band he likes a whole bunch. susan, a choir and orchestra is performed passion of the christ soundtack on leno, that bastard. the lead vocalist sucks, out of tune. seriously depressing stuff, it'll give you the lift you're looking for. not really, but whatever. peace everybeody....... : )

RE: Breakup Music | from michelMar 18 2004 - 14:36

hey m2, there's lyrics????????
WOW! I never heard through all the noise!
and I obviously need to check my Chinese to English dictionary to understand Ding A Ling Dang My Dang Along Ding Dong too as i'm sure there lies a hidden wisdom inside.

Maybe i meant smt (something) like when enough is enough already -AFTER all the good sobbing- you need to get out of a mood instead of drowning in it. You think 'it's so true' by Spain would be comforting? c'mon! (come on)

anyhow if it makes Susan any HAPPIER here's my modest and supposively unnessecary recommendation for getting sloppy and sobby over.

1. Codeine - promise of love
2. l'Altra - lips move on top of quiet
3. Lambchop - flick

if you weren't on the other side of the river Susan i would have offered you some K's (not kilometers) of the finest gettable from NL (Holland) to go with it. Just to show my good intentions...

RE: Breakup Music | from Seth HowardMar 18 2004 - 09:02

I've listened to that record many times. I think it's well done but it really doesn't grab me. Same with Pink Floyd for that matter.

There's a reason there's a lot of music in the world. People like different things.

RE: Breakup Music | from ronMar 18 2004 - 06:09

seth howard: if RHCP do nothing for you, i suggest another listen. no one with any musical knowledge can deny the absolute genius of BloodSugarSexMagik. but maybe they're like... i don't know... like Pink Floyd used to be for me. i used to hate them. but then one day i just heard them in a different way. one day it just clicked. and then the genius of that band was sort of revealed to me. i think if you push aside some of the association of a band like RHCP, i.e., the "jock rock" association, you might like them. or at the very least recognize how amazing they are as a band.

Jawbreaker's album "Dear You". I'm quite taken back that it has not been suggested yet. Listened to it for 9 months straight post breaking up from an engagement situation. You have to use the entire record though... Trust me, it works.

"Ding A Ling Dang My Dang Along Ding Dong."

yeah, i'm sure that'll fix her right up.

i think the fact that susan posted this thread to begin with makes the point that she obviously is

RE: Breakup Music | from michelMar 17 2004 - 13:26

Susan after all the good sobbing you can try the loooovely song 'jesus built my hot rod' by ministry to get your ass back on track - i'm sure you know it, you just have to think of it right? provided you play it loud as hell ofcourse and scream along to get it all out of your system, you'll be back on your feet in 4 mnts time ready to kick ass again thinking what it was you shed tears about.
maybe not, worth a try though.

The Red Hots are inescapable. Too many jock rock jockeys for that. Though their music does nothing for me, I did have occasion once to talk with Flea and Anthony Kiedis and they really were extremely nice guys.

I will back up the Pixies though. I still like them!

Also thought of another pretty swell sombre album for sad times: Big Star's 3rd Album (aka Sister Lovers)- only half the record is really that good, but that half is REALLY THAT GOOD...to echo the person who recommended Chris Bell's stuff.

Velvet Underground's 3rd self titled album is pretty hard to beat too.

Jesus I am old.

RE: Breakup Music | from Seth HowardMar 16 2004 - 14:49

I dated a girl who totally ruined the Pixies for me. She worshipped them. I don't hate the Pixies, but after her I have definitely had my fill. Same with Modest Mouse (a different relationship).

Maybe you'll never have to listen to the Red Hot Chili Peppers against your will again! Somehow I doubt it though.

RE: Breakup Music | from susan331Mar 16 2004 - 13:22

ck: I don't think he was trying to change me, so to speak. I think it just illustrates that we were and are very different people. At the end of the day he didn't think we were compatible-- I'm a writer, he's an engineer-- and he didn't see us lasting. So that was that. I'm flying out of state later on tonight, so I've a convenient escape. (On that note, if any of you happen to be in or around the Austin metro area, I'll be rockin' out with my cock out.)

Ron: Appreciate your concern. But my wonderful friends have already stepped up to the plate with donations of Ativan and good wine crafted right here in the glorious Central Valley. But the Pharmeceutical Donation Program is still in effect. And we're working on making donations tax-deductible, so stay tuned.

Seth: I really don't have much music that reminds me of him, largely because most of his music was CRAP! He's departing Susanland as a fan of Clinic, Johnny Cash, Interpol, BRMC, JSBX, Dismemberment Plan and Red House Painters, but most of the shit he's into I can't stand. Jane's Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fishbone. The Pixies were his favorite, as he went to U-Mass. Words cannot describe the intensity with which I hate the Pixies. They've given me some of the worst headaches I've ever had in my life!

Brian: I do own Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space. It's one of those rare albums that truly was a life-changing experience for me. And it's gotten me through many a difficult time. I have Pure Phase on right now, actually. I've had Kirsty MacColl's Titanic Days. She made that album during her divorce from Steve Lillywhite, so it's appropriate for me in a time of loss and pain.

RE: Breakup Music | from chrisMar 16 2004 - 13:18

try Catherine Wheel -Chrome or Girls and Boys; I also like a number of Smiths songs for breakups- "I know it's over" or "There is a light..." come to mind...and New Order-Ruined in a day, Regret, 1963, et al...

RE: Breakup Music | from Alex NiedtMar 16 2004 - 13:02

Adam - Once the guy who is supposedly releasing my CD creates it, I guess. Which probably means never.

RE: Breakup Music | from adamMar 16 2004 - 12:30

Hey Alex and Micah... back online. No idea what happened. When can I expect alexniedt.com/org.net?

RE: Breakup Music | from stemsMar 16 2004 - 07:55

Just wanna second mplaster's great suggestion of Talk Talk's "Spirit of Eden" album.

Both it and the followup (their last album, "Laughingstock") are essential.

There is simply no other music quite like it.

RE: Breakup Music | from ronMar 16 2004 - 06:10

i would strongly advise NOT taking any kind of drug that someone from the list mails to you... or anyone mails to you for that matter. (and i'm sure you were joking, but it's the social worker coming out in me). as for breakup tunes, counting crows is always a good one... recovering the satellites. i once saw a CC show with a girl i loved and it just gives me a kick in the face when i hear it now.

RE: Breakup Music | from cMar 16 2004 - 05:25

Alex - give "Hillside" another spin!

And I want to clarify what I said about SWS - I LOVE those records, I've been a fan since the Pyewackit e.p. was released, and my favorite is "Please Sennd Help", a true masterpiece... but I remember playing that over and over again after a breakup in late '01, and it was just too much - brought me too far down.

And I have to say that for catharsis, you can't beat early Swans - if you're ANGRY about a breakup, or someone has done you wrong, I recommend "Cop" or "Public castration is a good idea" at very high volumes.

RE: Breakup Music | from ckMar 16 2004 - 04:38

Neil Young's "After the Goldrush."

By the way, "He was an alterboy for 10 years" contains an interesting typo. Could it be he was trying to change you?

Hang in there. I'm old enough to know it does get better, then worse, then better...

P.S. Don't limit yourself to music. Rent mindless comedies; read absorbing books. I'd be glad to make some recommendations on these fronts if you're interested.

RE: Breakup Music | from susan331Mar 15 2004 - 23:15

Bloodless: I just might have to check out your stuff sometime. How can I?

Mplaster: I do have Heaven of Las Vegas. I was so into the Cocteau Twins in high school, it wasn't even funny.

Seth: Ain't it the truth?! I firmly believe that most if not all of the solutions to life's ills can be found in one's music library.

Brian: I'm a recovering Catholic.
He was an alterboy for 10 years.
But that wasn't what caused the breakup, but it was an issue
that was a pain in my ass a few times.

The local college radio station's been playing the Fall, Billy Bragg, the Phones, the Feelies, Let's Active, Wire, early Giant Sand and Kate Bush tonight, which has been nice.

RE: Breakup Music | from mplasterMar 15 2004 - 22:48

i'd say even more than my own stuff, stay away from Swans at all costs.

as for maybe something to more-or-less be comforting (possibly even uplifting) a few come to mind. Talk Talk's "Spirit of Eden," anyone who doesn't have this album needs to get it. period.

William Ackerman's "Conferring with the Moon" is a perfect blend of gentle-sadness/nostalgic and happy-calm/carefree, albeit a slighty 'adult-contemp' instrumental album. definately his best, though...

Tears for Fears' "Seeds of Love." seriously. there are few albums as well arranged and written in the 80's pop vein as this one. if you can get past the hugely orchestral and just-barely too-hyper "Sowing the Seeds of Love" song - which we've all heard - there are some seriously nice, deep album tracks in there as well.

also try David Sylvian's "Secrets of the Beehive" or Cocteau Twins' "Heaven or Las Vegas."
....two albums so well crafted you cant help but feel alright.


and if all else fails, get Ween's "Pure Guava" and call it a night.


RE: Breakup Music | from brianMar 15 2004 - 22:12

Susan, completely right. the only other female i've known to really listen to music at bad times listened to Ani Difranco and is the one who turned me on to her songs. i really like her too. i think she actually writes some songs that can be from either male or female perspective. the song 32 FLAVORS for example is good. the double live cd LIVING IN CLIP has played quite often for me and my other friend.

RE: Breakup Music | from bloodlessMar 15 2004 - 21:44

hmm...i'd recommend "miss america" by mary margaret o'hara and select bits of chris bell's "i am the cosmos" (some of it's too pseudo-religious for my taste). or, for something more amorphous, "selected ambient works vol. ii" by aphex twin.

"song to the siren" by tim buckley contains one of the most beautifully miserable-sounding vocal performances i've ever heard, but the album it's drawn from ("starsailor") is an acquired taste, to put it mildly. it's also next-to-impossible to track down, short of spending a ridiculous amount of money on ebay. which is exactly what i did, because i am insane.

in the wake of a breakup, i tend to gravitate toward my own music--particularly that which was recorded during times of emotional agony. i guess that's kind of self-indulgent, but it's some of the only stuff i relate to on a visceral, "that's exactly what i'm feeling!" level.

for listening-while-under-the-influence-of-pharmaceuticals, big star's "third/sister lovers" might work. to that end, alex chilton's solo deconstruction of "can't seem to make you mine" is pleasantly psychotic.

there's also some suitable music by david sylvian, john cale, jane siberry, and i could go on and on...but really, i have no idea what i'm talking about. sorry to go on for so long...

RE: Breakup Music | from susan331Mar 15 2004 - 21:11

Brian-- You know, I really think you're onto something with the idea that turning to one's music collection in times of strife (especially that which stems from heartbreak) is an exclusively male phenomenon. If women do turn to music, which I don't see very often, they listen to really sappy shit like Jewel. Most of the time they go shopping and bitch to their girlfriends. It's an alternate (and completely different) way of coping.

Stems: I do find myself attaching to specific tracks as opposed to wallowing in entire albums.

XTC's "Dear God" is playing on my local college-radio station, which is totally funny as the subject matter was an issue that did pop up more than a few times in the relationship I'm getting out of. Kinda funny...

RE: Breakup Music | from AshMar 15 2004 - 20:43

I'm sorry to hear your postion.
I myself would not listen to any slow moody tunes for a while.
My advise would be to get that rocking soul alive again with some more uplifting sounds.ie(THE OWLS,TABLE,SWERVEDRIVER etc.)

RE: Breakup Music | from brianMar 15 2004 - 19:02

susan, sorry to hear about things. the break up music question is a good topic. though it is interesting that only the males have replied, because some of the music suggested, and that i will, is possibly more from our perspective. i'm curious about from the female side.

RE: Breakup Music | from stemsMar 15 2004 - 17:31

Palace Bros.- "Arise Therefore"

Galxie 500 - some tracks off "On Fire"

I really think of individual SONGS more than albums for this purpose.

Sorry

Two Cents Plus Tax | from Seth HowardMar 15 2004 - 16:57

Damn. That's one of my all time favorite albums.

RE: Breakup Music | from greenMar 15 2004 - 15:47

Versus "two cents plust tax" helped me out once.

RE: Breakup Music | from AndrewMar 15 2004 - 15:07

Come on Codreanu. How can you possibly have a break up albums list without 'Hope Was'? It defines break up album. Soulwhirling's 'Please Sennd Help' is a great break up album, and probably won't make you want to kill yourself. I've always liked 'Disintegration' by The Cure.

RE: Breakup Music | from Alex NiedtMar 15 2004 - 14:21

Yeah, looks like Adam forgot to pay his fee. ; )

RE: Breakup Music | from micahMar 15 2004 - 13:59

p.s. ten year drought's website seems to be down?

RE: Breakup Music | from micahMar 15 2004 - 13:55

mojave 3-spoon and rafter
lanterna-elm street
codeine-the white birch (may fall into the self-pity category though)
low-i could live in hope (probably the better choice)

you may already have these, of course. and it should be noted i don't know what i'm talking about.


RE: Breakup Music | from CodreanuMar 15 2004 - 13:41

there goes Alex with his obligatory SWS plug, enough already.

As far as good breakup tunes, I highly suggest Motorhead, b-52s and Corey Hart.

Oops, Wilson Phillips - HOOOOOOOOOOOOO-OLLD ONNNNNNNNNN, for one more day, things'll go yer way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

RE: Breakup Music | from jMar 15 2004 - 13:35

Afghan Whigs

RE: Breakup Music | from Seth HowardMar 15 2004 - 13:14

Slowdive's "Pygmalion" and "Just For A Day" got me through a few.

I think C is right though. Stay away from the self-pitying stuff. Pull out the records you've had forever that mean something to YOU(and that don't remind you too much of you-know-who).

Luckily, music is always there for us. Hang in there.

RE: Breakup Music | from Alex NiedtMar 15 2004 - 12:41

c, I have that Arnold CD. I've only listened to it once though, and really didn't like it at all. I guess another listen is in order.

RE: Breakup Music | from cMar 15 2004 - 12:25

Stay away from SoulWhirlingSomewhere - it'll make you want to kill yourself.

One incredible album that got me through a tortuous breakup is "Hillside" by an English trio Arnold - you can find the cd in any local used bin (it was released on Sony back in '98, and the band was dropped almost immediately) -it's low-key, melodic, and very warm... and it's like a heartbreak salve. And no one's ever heard it except for me. I've never heard another album quite like it. Please please please find this CD!!! It WILL make you feel better.

Along those lines, there's "Past Imperfect Present Tense" by Erik Sanko (of Skeleton Key) - fractured little lullabies... highly recommended.

"Alas" also was very helpful to me, but you know about that record already.

These records are great because they're soaked in heartbreak and pain, but don't sink into self-pity like much of SWS, AMC, and RHP.

gimme | from susan331Mar 15 2004 - 11:53

All right kids. I know we've been here before. And right now, I am where so many of you have been before. So hit me with appropriate breakup music. I'm surprisingly well-equipped this time around (Spiritualized, RHP, Scott Walker, Azusa Plane, Stars of the Lid, Lisa Germano) but can always use more.
