A bit raw and predictable around the edges, but an upbeat debut album with clear rock sensibilities and strong potential for the future (The Colour & the Shape, anyone?) from almost-Heartbreaker Dave Grohl…
Foo Fighters’ There is Nothing Left to Lose (1999) – MAYBE NOT
Foo Fighters' "There is Nothing Left to Lose" (1999)
(November 2, 1999)
Although this album somehow managed to rake in better reviews than The Colour and the Shape (1997), these songs — for all their potential and positive aspects — generally fall flat (i.e. “Learn to Fly” is wonderfully catchy but irritatingly repetitive; the outstanding “Generator” is marred by perhaps the most annoying guitar effect on record).
Laptop Sessions Historian UpdateOn the day 6 years after he recorded this song, Jeff has reuploaded it to his Youtube channel and it is now available for your viewing pleasure or displeasure (hopefully pleasure). Enjoy!
Welcome, for the first time in 6 weeks, to Thumpin’ Thursday! That’s right, after a brief hiatus for an awesome acoustic cover song by Mike, I am back for my regularly scheduled Thursday video. I’ve got a short but awesome one for you today.
One of my favorite albums in my teenage years was the album “Foo Fighters” by the band of the same name. At the time, I listened to this album countless times. I can probably play most of the songs on the album and the lyrics are easy to recall. The song I have chosen is “Big Me”, which was a single from the album. You may recall the music video (yeah, like MTV plays music videos anymore – they used too) is a spoof of old Mentos’ commercials. I’m sure you can find it on Youtube on countless users’ channels.
I usually don’t record short songs, but my next video will be a slightly longer song, and could be a new band as well! You’ll have to wait and see.
Come back tomorrow for Friday’s edition, where Jim will wow us again.
