Got a CD in the mail by The Break and Repair Method. Quick research (read: a visit to the band's MySpace page) reveals this is a side project of Matchbox 20 guitarist Paul Doucette (dude, give up your day gig and put all your eggs in this basket!) featuring a wide array of friends who lend their talents to various songs. Reading the names is like reading a Who's Who of mid-90s MTV videos - Tracy Bonham ("Mother Mother"), Nina Gordon (ex-Veruca Salt, "Seether"), David Levita (Alanis Morrisette), Roger Manning (Jellyfish, Beck), Rusty Anderson (Paul McCartney), Jeff Russo (Tonic, "If You Could Only See the Way"), Ryan Macmillan (The Push Stars), and Matt Beck (Dog's Eye View). And, did I mention that Doucette is married to Moon Unit Zappa?

All these names got me thinking of the one-hit wonders of the '90s, particularly the mid-90s (of which many of these performers were members of).

Remember this song? (Dig - "Believe")



Or this one? (New Radicals - "Get What You Give")



Or this one? (Marcy Playground - "Sex and Candy")



I know fans of these bands will argue that they were more than one-hit wonders the same way I'll argue that Blind Melon and Veruca Salt were more than one-hit wonders, but to the average music consumer, these bands are known for one hit, and one hit only.

On your mark ... get set ... post videos!

Universal Music Group strikes again! "Embedding not allowed". BOO. The videos I had up there have been replaced with videos NOT owned by Universal Music Group.

WOW! I don't think I ever saw this one. I LOVE(d) WAX. Their big hit though was "California" with the dude running down the street in slow motion on fire.

Saw them touring for the first record at Stache's after they were recommended by Bob Forrest of Thelonious Monster. If I'm not mistaken, Feversmile opened under a fake name. I think there were 11 people at the show. Have you ever heard Joe Sib's post-Wax band 22 Jacks? Love them too.

As immaturity may be a result of certain chemical imbalances
so may the friggin' skatenigs, flick the trigger on the sucker
squealing studs of puddness,
they sing stuck in a rut in pig pog land
they share rigs with grave diggers,
worry about death when its done come and gone,
you buy their records and they'll piss on your momma's best collectables.
they beat their rancid meat and expect you to pay the check
they ream the beef of bad backstage girls
redundant in new wave black
up the butt, snuck, stuck, mucked-up, sucked
I'd eat baboon bowel before I'd bite on their juvenile, penile pole projections
they casually, smashingly refer to as "my dick"
Infected, rejected, afflicted, mal-addicted, boa constrictive
if immaturity is a indeed a certain result of chemical imbalances,then these guys are on a permanent, Ammaco overload.
Crawling through maggot breath, yeehaaaaaw
boys with latex toys,
if buttholes were peepshows then the Nigs are the window to the soul
of this fucking ridiculous world
Banality's got nothin' on these boys
enough to sign royalty checks,
the forged signitaure
the toilet swipe,
the mega-acid smile
the glitch in the universal way


yeah...
a real boss abortion to brag about at your next barbeque.



skatenigs-chemical imbalance

what i really miss is the triple thrash threat.

entombed : stranger aeons


godflesh : mothra


sepultura : dead embryonic cells


carcass : incarnated solvent abuse


corrosion of conformity : vote with a bullet


napalm death : suffer the children


jawbox : savory


shudder to think : x-french tee shirt
[myspace-video]http://myspacetv.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=30567637[/myspace-video]
i remember being impressed by how the whole song was like one chord
