Stoner Kings were pretty awful, if I remember correctly.

What was that supergroup one off album with 5 guitarists on it? "Sunrise on the sufferbus"? Something like that, the album was called? Buhler? I never cared for it; listened to it once, collected some dust, and eventually sold it back to the Princeton Record Exchange, where I'm pretty sure I bought it.

Anyone remember that? Was I missing something? Didn't it have Monster Magnet's original guitarist in it, among others? It was like a Jersey collective. They just all got together and said fuck it let's write an album.

Sunrise on the Sufferbus was Masters of Reality. Maybe Bugs on the Bluefish? Wasn't that the NJ supergroup of stoner rock legends in the making?

Every Fu Manchu album ever. Every monster magnet album ever.


In particular though....would have to be Robot Lords of Tokyo S/T. Could never stand that band.

Bugs in the Bluefish was the Jersey supergroup one off thing. Had some okay moments, but was generally panned. I think I got it as a freebie in a couple of different ATH orders.

I thought Nebula's Apollo was pretty weak.

Debate ended. This is easily the worst thing to come out of that little blip where people thought there might be a bandwagon worth hopping onto.

Sea of Green were almost humorous in their level of suck. They sucked in ways yet discovered by mankind.

Agreed on Sea of Green. For me it marked a turning point.
Ha ha, I think I still have it.

The album with all the guitarists was Gallery Mites - Bugs on a Bluefish. Yeah, that was pretty lame considering the talent present (including a guest spot from John Garcia). Much eaker than the Jersey Devils - Scene Killer that it was supposed to be an improvement on.

Sea of Green may just take the cake on this front though. Having a really tough time thinking of something worse. Sasquatch is one band that everyone seems to love which I just can't seem to get into. They just come across as bland to me.

Ha, I've got sea of green and the gallery of mites. Reminders that you shouldn't believe every review you read.

I actually got the Gallery of Mites thing as a freebie. I believe I still own it but I don't remember much about it; good or bad.

I've never heard Sea of Green but, correct me if I'm wrong, wasn't there a fairly big shitstorm at sr.com due to them? If the album is that bad, it almost makes me want to seek it out to witness the spectacle. Almost.

Yeah, I remember. Rob Wrong reviewed their album. Said something along the lines of "You know how some things just taste like chicken? This is the same deal." The review as a whole said the album was neither good nor bad - it just was (pretty much like what most reviews said). Sea of Green guy took offense, brought up the fact that Rob loved their previous demo, butt hurt commenced. The two got at it, then Sea of Green guy tried to hack the site, ban hammer came down, and the thread disappeared.

I'm pretty sure Southard hates the Gallery of Mites record, to the point where he was pissed that it was even released.

Gallery of Mites - Bugs on the Bluefish is one of my favourite records but I'm a big Ribeye Brothers fan and really dig Tim Cronin's laid back alcoholic garage rock vocals.

I'm pretty sure its only that one song with 5 guitarists on it and the rest of the album just sounds like Ribeye Brothers crossed with the Stooges

I don't know how you can fuck with a song like this:



All you motherfuckers got X's for eyes

I just listened to 'Time to Fly' and that is a perfect description. Nothing of substance, but nothing that offends. just some guitars, and singing and drumming. in one ear, out the other.

There are worse albums out there, but doubtful that any leave less of an impression.

Heh, when was that? I must have missed it. One of my favorite shitstorms on SR.com was the Nebula/ Totimoshi tour versus clueless promoter, something along the lines of that nearly no one turned up for a gig and he blamed Nebula, then couldn't pay them (or was it that they didn't make the gig?). I think that Eddie chimed in saying that they'd had van breakdowns and it was either that they'd made the gig despite hardship and got shit on, OR they didn't make it and the promoter got pissed. But the funny thing was that the promoter made this huge deal out of it by creating a thread about it, and I guess that the Nebula guys got wind of it and tried to talk some sense with the guy on the forums.

Anyone else remember this to give better details?

Agreed. I didn't hear that album, but if the rest of it is like that track, i'd probably be sold--that's some serious Stooges "1969/ No Fun" action right there.
