The website's called and there's NO Joe's Garage thread??? :rolleyes:

Of the 28 FZ albums that I've listened to so far, JG is my favorite. Every song is GREAT obviously and Mr. Ike Willis shines like a star on it from start to finish (I'm an Ike fan for life now because of JG). JG also gets my vote as the funniest FZ album I've listened to so far (the parts where he breaks character as The Central Scrutinizer and starts laughing never fail to make me laugh too). All that and "Watermelon In Easter Hay". What more could you ask for?

I can't tell ya how central this record is for me and to me! It has a funny way of paralelling my life in little vignettes. Not continous, just now and then, here and there.

-- Yeah.

:-D I eagerly wait the next part.

I think Joe's Garage was the first real album I bought (after 'Strictly Commercial'). It's extremely accessible to anyone I reckon. But some of the music is unbelievably complex, especially the bass playing and drumming. I think I got this one first because I was already a big fan of Vinnie.

You know that second verse in 'Keep It Greasy'? First time I heard that my head spun around, and i considered myself pretty good with time signatures and transcribing drum parts. But I had absolutely NO IDEA. Then one day I actually tried to figure out what was going on and I succeeded! It's fast and in 21/16 and i transcribed Vinnie's part and learnt how to play it. Now I play it whenever I want to impress people. In fact, I'm playing it in my head right now! :drums:
