what with all the talk of "guero" and "one foot in the grave" lately, i'm reminded what a really friggin' great album "stereopathetic soul manure" is...

(while i was lookin up whether "soul manure" was one word or two, i came across this review on allmusic.com
...his sense of songcraft is inaudible. Essentially, the record was both a palate cleanser, one designed to scare away the "Loser" fans, and a bid for indie credibility, since the music on Stereopathetic is equally as uncompromising and as unlistenable as Sonic Youth or their many imitators at their most extreme.
-Stephen Thomas Erlewine

unlistenable? sure there's some harsh/odd bits, especially some of the live/field recording stuff, but i'll throw "rowboat", "crystal clear (beer)", and "puttin' it down" up against near any beck tune...
