Shudder to Think - Get Your Goat (1992)


My favorite record by one of the all-time great post-hardcore bands. Angular, deceivingly melodic guitars, constantly shifting time signatures, and high-pitched, sweetly idiosyncratic, slightly unhinged vocals. Extremely underrated band.

Track listing:
1. Love Catastrophe
2. Shake Your Halo Down
3. White Page
4. Goat
5. Pebbles
6. Baby Drop
7. The Hair Pillow
8. She Swears He-Harem
9. Rain Covered Cat
10. Funny

Dip a cloth in a bowl of blood, lean your horses hide with it
Stick a fish in a tattoo gun, watch what color ink comes out

  1. I can't help but associate this band with Beavis & Butt-Head, since my introduction to them was the boys' commentary on "Hit Liquor" where they primarily talk about Don Henley and necrophilia. Thanks for putting this one up, haven't heard it yet.
