Blaze Of Glory: The Beginning Of The End

nostalgic.jpg(Ed. note: Tomorrow’s my last day, and after almost a year of low-brow one-liners and overly porous “opinion” rants, I got nothin’ left. So I’m going to spend the rest of my time lazily piling on the MP3s. Some of these are tracks I never got around to putting up in the first place, while others are tunes that went up back when we had about seven readers.)

ARTIST J Church
ALBUM Nostalgic For Nothing, a 1995 rarities and singles compilation
BACKGROUND Of all the pop-punk-whatever bands that I burned through in the ’90s, J Church holds up the best: Lance Hahn’s one-liners and observations only get funnier as you get older, and despite parlaying a half-dozen or so power chords into hundreds of songs, he never lost the quality vs. quantity battle. Some proof:

J Church – Panama [MP3, link expired]
J Church – Ivy League College [MP3, link expired]
J Church [MySpace]

    fucking awful. glad tomorrow is your last day.

    I’d say Cheap Shot’s having a tough morning. While I would not have picked these two tracks at 1-2, this is a great album.

    I vote “Nostalgic for Nothing” and “UFO’s Will Crash” as my 1-2 off of this album. Try to avoid the “Planet Earth” cover, though. It’s terrible.

    First Avail and now J Church? Weird. Are you my college radio show circa 1996?

  • pjohn

    seriously. its getting creepy for me too.

    of course my show would have gone a few records back and opened up with “facist radio”, but whatever
