30) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Poster Children-'Flower Plower'
I found the Poster Children on their second record because of Pixies. Well, really because Steve Albini was the engineer for the Pixies album 'Surfer Rosa'. Starting in 1990, I was on the hunt to find music engineered by Albini, and it was with the song "If You See Kay" in 1991 from their second record is where I found Poster Children. Not too long after, I found this album from their catalog which had four songs also engineered by Albini. The band would soon become one of my all-time favorites, and release over ten records worth of material to their credit. Over 30 years later, they still make blistering music, and have entergetic live preformances. I saw them just last year for the 11th time, and that's not including the PC side projects Salaryman and Thoughts Detecting Machines. One of the most pioneering modern rock bands ever. They had blogs before they were called blogs. They had podcasts before they were called podcasts. Way back in 1998, I had to look up what an MP3 was when I saw on their website that they were giving away a free MP3 download of a song. Modern art indeed. Also while loads of people were listening to Nirvana's second record in 1992, I was also listening to Nirvana, but mostly I was listening to what Nirvana was listening to; and that was music engineered by Albini. I would like to give a thanks to Rick, Rose, Jim, and Matt for their longtime support of Music For Listeners. "Maybe I'm George Seurat speaking French and painting dots." - Michael - MFL
