did you guys know that when the surfs up 7" came out I didnt know "girl don't tell me" was a beach boys cover

i listened to that shit constantly that year and rode super hard for vivian girls, i was still naive enough to be shocked when i showed up to the venue on the sf stop of their first fucking tour and there werent any tickets for sale at the door

like hey bro maybe you dont remember me posting their demo on my blog six months ago but i'm pretty sure that makes me a big wheel down at the cracker factory

i was going to shows here back when spazzy vaguely math-y noiserock bands were still the big thing in this town you smug bastard

in early/mid 2010 the babies were one of the opening acts for the first ever white fence show (in a basement in chinatown) and after they played the hit i got bored and walked away from their set

i ran into an equally disinterested dude i knew from when i worked at the record store who heard i was broke and offered me some temp work at an office that turned into my inexplicable 3 year stint of working a lucrative sf startup job i wasnt at all qualified for

i was a 21 year old virgin and i had all the time in the world, there is literally no chance i hadnt been drinking 4 loko, and life is but a dream

thats what vivian girls means to me.

This was the time when everyone realized you didnt need to write songs. Just pick an aesthetic sound based off a post punk band and make 38 minute albums where all songs sound the same

Glitter is one of my favourite songs of that ilk. it isn't much in the way of strong songwriting, but it's just a vibey guitar tone that throws up all sorts of memories and imagery. that and Vox Celeste by Deerhunter.

I recently saw No Age play at this tiny venue where you walk in and the bar is immediately to your right, and the stage is straight to your left. probably had about 10 paying customers there if that. no idea who had the balls to book a band who peaked ten years ago play two shows in my type of town, but there you go. spoke to em afterwards for a good 25 minutes about Colin Greenwood and how Letterman is a prick. bought Everything In Between on vinyl, in some nice big book, and Dean wrote all this stuff about veganism in it. there ya go.

yeah they didn't have the best songwriting but definitely some good "vibey" moments. i remember this rich art kid who i used to skate with was all over those no age shirts. he wrote graffiti but his dad picked him up in a bmw from the skatepark. he was pretty cool at the end of the day though

seemed like a "hipster era" item or something circa 2006

i find it funny that women (who are now one of the only bands that have grown in appreciation after putting out their first album in 2008) had a lower score than that no age album from the same period on the old fork

fucking hell. they clued in on the good parts of that whole aesthetic in one album but actually threw in the songs.

Yeah printing those t-shirts was the best thing the band ever did. it got them a heap of attention. real 2009-2010 zeitgeist tokens like streetstyle snappers, Carles posts, and being ripped off by Forever 21 all got regular outings and press for the old No Age rainbow tee/No Age the band.

Maybe Health('s first 2 albums) don't quite fit here, but their shirts defs had that micro-cultural moment too
