Further - Sometimes Chimes 2LP

From my previous post:

"Speaking of wilfully obscure, California's Further proffers the paradigm case. If you're a fan of skronky, sloppy indie rock a la early Dinosaur Jr, Sebadoh, and Pavement, well then this may be your Golden Grimes ticket to Glory. The shortish story is that members of Further started off in Shadowland who released two dismal "alternative" albums on Geffen. Disenfranchised with their experience on a major, Brent and Darren Rademaker formed Further, who released four albums and handfuls of singles (as evidenced by their discography) of liberatingly unrestricted indie rock. Rarely critics darlings, Further were often chided for sounding like the bands listed above, thus spawning the excellently tongue-in-cheek song "Furtherdoh Jr-Q" provided below. After the band broke up in the late 90s, Brent joined Beachwood Sparks and Darren joined The Tyde. Sometimes Chimes is a double LP released on Christmas Records in 1993. It is out of print and fetches a pretty penny on eBay. There are 27 songs here, clocking in at 1.3 hours, and by my count, it's 20 songs too long (though it's an admirable excess as it is). So I've handpicked a fine EP's worth of True Indie Rock songs. For more background on the band, check out this and that."

This round you can check out the admirability of the excess.

Top stuff!

I was gibbering about this last time when you done the 'last requests' posts the 2nd time around.

Now I can find out what those 2 mystery songs are 14/15 years after hearing them on the John Peel show (I never caught the titles for the tracks!).

Many thanks for this, as I noticed 'Amazon' were selling this for something like '£40/£50, (which is just too much, really...).


P.S:-(I have Further's 'Distance' DBL 7", 'Supergriptape' & 'Grimes Golden' on CD if yer intersted)?

Hmmm. 60 bucks BIN price on ebay. 80-100 bucks on Amazon. Maybe it's time I dug up my copy out and sold it. I was never too fond of it anyways.
