    Too bad, I’d love it if they put out Niandra Ladies

  2. Marley says:

    No offense to John but I don’t care about any other solo album apart from Niandra Ladies. -.-

    I really like Untitled #11, Your Pussy’s Glued To A Building On Fire and Your Smile Is A Rifle which are the only tracks I’ve heard that I like. Unfortunately it isn’t available on iTunes but that new Lefr Leftr album (which I don’t like at all) is.

  3. Del says:

    Agreed the one I really want is Niandra Lades.

    I never understood the love for Niandra Lades, I know he was in terrible shape at the time but the album sounds horrible, particularly his voice.

  5. Martin says:

    I love the raw emotion john exhibits on niandra lades and smiles from the street you hold. That lo-fi sound is so amazing. I wish more artists would release lo-fi records. Overproduced albums kinda lose a little bit of that magic, at least for me.

  6. bon3z says:

    John has some genious music… Niandra Lades…. just trash

  7. MacKeena says:

    Niandra Lades… is one of the most shocking/WTF/fantastic records of the last 30 years.

    I really loved his last album, PBX, very experimental but amazing as always.

  8. Paul Kneitz says:

    I like a lot of John’s albums – The Will to Death, PBX, etc. – but none of them are as expressive or emotional as Niandra Ladies.

  9. bon3z says:

    then maybe im a stupid asshole. Will try niandra once more

  10. hecht7 says:

    you have to keep in mind that john was 18 when he wrote these masterpieces on niandra lades…if you don’t appreciate the vocals (although i love the vocals.. you can feel the pain), at least admire the guitar work…it’s amazing
