    One word, 'Awesome'.

    From the EPs to Matthew Good's solo album, it all just completely fucking owns.

    Where's the rest of the MGB crew on OT? :squint:

    i don't have all of his albums (Ray Gun being one of them)

    he (and his band) are definately one of my favourite bands. i'm so sad they broke up.

    I find that his solo album was not as good as his older stuff.
    stuff like Beautiful Midnight and Underdogs are what i really enjoy.

    I'm also proud they're Canadian!! you Americans got the Americanized Beautiful Midnight, and have to 'import' their CD's :fawk:

    I didn't like Avalanche at first either, but the more I listened to it, the more it sucked me in.

    I think Avalanche is just as good as any of the MGB stuff, and reminds me a lot of what MGB was like in the early part of the band's life.

    I've proudly imported all their albums. :bigthumb:

    wow...eriatarka is core.

    what's the Special Edition of Avalanche include??
    do you have the MGB soccer jersey? those are pretty neat.
    plus you need Matt's book. that seems to be the only missing piece.

    It's just the booklet that is different. I took these pics, but my host cuts them off for some reason.:wtc:
    This covered the booklet:

    The booklet doesn't have the normal paper you usually find. The whole package was very nice.

    No, I don't have an MGB jersey. I've been looking for one, but no one wants to sell their's. Matt actually has some new ones made with all the proceeds from it going to Amnesty International.
    I forgot to mention his book. I have that along with Black Market Surgery.

    Anyways, his new album should be out in a few months and I'm expecting a DVD to come with it. The album is being recorded live off the floor which should be great.

    I'll take a supersize of death with a coke.

    edit: Did you manage to get all the demos I sent you a while back? My host killed all my accounts including the one with the demos hosted.

    the first song i heard from them, and the one that got me hooked was 'Load Me Up' from 'Beautiful Midnight'.

    i bought the album and at first i didnt like it, but after a few listens, i loved it.

    i would suggest that you sample it. cause i don't know how to describe their music. Apparitions, Load Me Up, Strange Days, The Future is X-Rated are just some of my favourites.

    Yes, they do kick ass. I lost my CD of Audio of Being though, FUCK!

    Someone needs to make a torrent of all the B-sides.

    These are the only b-sides that I can think of that haven't been officially released. Universal wasn't too happy that they got leaked which makes you wonder if they're planning on releasing a greatest hits cd that would include pony boy and all together.

    Pony boy is so good. I wonder why it was cut.
