Boo Radleys reference?


That's why I like you, Gary B!
I always thought they were head-and-shoulders above the rest of the so-called Brit Pop bands that sold so many records here in the States.
What was your take on them?


I missed them in their early shoegazey days, and only got into them with the Wake Up Boo! single. Loved the Wake Up LP (and still do) but my favourite is still C'mon Kids - what a great record.

I tell you, if you have never heard it you should seek out the Eggman LP "First Fruits" (Eggman being the singer in the BRs). 90s psych-pop I'd say. Very Scouse!

Re: Martin, Doom! It's Seven O'Clock...

Yeah, I'm with you on "C'mon Kids"; what a great album! I also love "Wake Up!", and the earlier "Giant Steps" (where they really seemed to find their voice). And you're right, that Eggman record was pretty good, I'll have to dig that back out of the pile.
Boo main-man Martin Carr did some records under the "Brave Captain" alias, and just recently released a solo album which is getting some good reviews.

Boo Radleys were a great band. So underrated. Stereolab remixed this eponymous track that was on their massive Wake Up album. It's a great tune as well, quite dreamy and experimental and pisses all over the album's title track's all too obvious commercialism.

How about this tune? You gotta love the My Bloody Valentine meets the Beatles moment at about 5 minutes in.
Does anyone have any weed I can borrow?

I luv that. Thanks. I've heard that beatlesgue sound. Was it Sgt. Pepr, Magi Myst Tr or Yellow Sub? This Boo Radley's tune reminds me of Oasis a lot. How about a Champagne Supervova to help get through untill CC2?

The only album I own (I think...a lot of my stuff is in storage at my parents', so sometimes I lose track of my collection) of theirs is Wake Up, and I remember liking it quite a bit. Maybe I should dive deeper into their output...

You can go either way. I prefer the later stuff (C'Mon Kids especially), but most people like the earlier stuff better. The fairly recent 2CD Best Of (Find The Way Out) might be a good place to go.

Re: Martin, Doom! It's Seven O'Clock...

I was lucky enough to catch the Boo's at the new 9:30 Club back around 1997. When they finished playing C'Mon Kids, I thought I would never regain my hearing (the Who's got nothing on them). I think the only louder wall of noise I ever witnessed was a MBV show at the old 9:30 Club that they finished out with about 20 minutes of the most heavenly noise ever made. When we got outside after the show, my buddy turned to me and said, "What just happened in there?".
