  1. Well aren't we investigative! ;) thanks. That makes sense.
  2. I don't like picking favorite lyrics... danimal, your very right about picking yup hidden meanings each listening... but I'm not sure that is the direct intent of Matt's music. When Matt wrote it, it had a meaning to him... the words he chooses are often to cryptic to clearly identify exactly want he was thinking about. Each time you listen to a song, you interpret what he meant based on your current feelings and experiences. The best thing about Matt's music is that it always has some meaning, not like the rest of the watered down auditory diarrhea that currently dominates the music
  3. Underdogs went Platinum Beautiful Midnight sold close to 25000 copies. Google is your friend. Peace
  4. Cool, I'll try to tape it, capture it on my PC and upload it to my school web account (they give me a ton of space). Then I'll post a link. That is if I'm not to busy. Peace
  5. The coolest song I ever hear live was a version of 21st Century Living he did on his last tour. I was cool 'cause he changed up the rant to reflect current world events. Peace
  6. NP I want to add them as artwork in my iTunes collection anyway. Peace
  7. I dunno if the art is different. Here are some pics: I also love the look of the CD it's self: "INSERT INTO PLAYER, FEEL THE GLOW OF COMMERCE" Peace
  8. I think Matt is a good writer for the guitar (note that all of the tracks past intermezzo on loser anthems are written and played by Matt) as for his technical skill playing the guitar. I've watched the empty road making video... and I can't argue with his skill... sure he is not the most skilled guitarist on the planet, but he's good. I wish I was as good as Matt ;) Peace
  9. I think I'll pick up the vinyl of Avalanche... even though I don't have a working phonograph. Peace
  10. I hear exactly what you mean... But It's not so much an issue of the timing between the kick and bass, as it is that the kick seems to disappear. It's a cool musical effect... and the song is still cool. Peace
  11. Oh boy, this is going to get ugly... I think at this point it's not even worth arguing any more. I think that it's brutal that people throw stuff at performers. But I also find it offensive when people stand around at concerts like their waiting for the john. It's ok to get into the music, it's ok for the people around you to get into the music. You have to learn to control yourself though. From what I've heard, I believe that the crowd didn't intend on smashing Matt in the face with the mic. The barrier was inappropriate (I've never been to a show that didn't have a barrier
  12. I'm not going to flame you. I think that your right. If Matt doesn't allow the music element to grow through the input of other musical elements, then his music does pose the risk of becoming stale. Now at least both of us will get flamed. Peace
  13. That fits within the time frame of time I wasn't following the band (or matt) Peace
  14. intermezzo: m. good vs m. trolly "you can't get back, you got to look... how you suppost'a pick up chicks if you've got to look at what your doing" lol Peace
  15. Must keep posting, must get new song
  16. I think that it's a little unreasonable that the crowd surged during weapon. I live in Saskatoon (the 2nd major city in Saskatchewan, north of Regina) and I remember when Matt said he would never play there again after he got the shoe thrown at him (I think it was a shoe, but the object is not important). That was during Apparitions, and I though that who ever threw it was some kind of idiot. I still think what Matt said then is still true, had it happened during Load Me Up, or Hello Time Bomb it wouldn't have been as bad. Hope the show tonight goes well for him, I know he'll prob
  17. I feel like I should be burned to have to ask this question, but when did Matt get married. (since we lost runningforhome.net I haven't kept up on Matt, till now) Peace
  18. digi packs are cool, and they aren't as wasteful as plastic cases (less harmful chemicals used in creation). Plus you get the digi pack art. Peace
  19. Quick recap, just a refection on Matt being the driving force of MGB: LOTGA: Matthew Good except: 'alabama motel room' (good/lloyd/browne) Raygun: Matthew Good except: 'generation x-wing' (good/genn) & 'alabama motel room', see above Underdogs: words by good, music by good/genn except: 'the inescapable us' and 'prime time deliverance' (all Matt) 'rico' (good/browne/lloyd/genn) Beautiful Midnight: words by good, music by good/genn except: 'load me up' (good/genn/browne/priske) 'flashdance II' (good/genn) Loser Anthems: no info The Audio of Being: no info.
  20. That is a tough question to answer... Both MGB and Matt's solo work have there merits. *shrug* dunno.
  21. ToadMan


    I would love a DVD that has all of the videos (in high quality... screw this 320 x 240 $hit). On the road and live stuff would be cool too. There are a ton of features done on Matt (and MGB) that would be cool to include. Peace
  22. So someone else still remembers Geoff Lloyd... Any body know what he is up to now? Did anybody else notice that there are similarities between the style in LOTGA, and Avalanche? I though they had similar modes (it's also similar to some of his demo stuff). And with WLR&RR the difference between it and Avalanche is similar to the difference between LOTGA and Underdogs... Just some food for thought. I'm not saying that the albums are the same, I am just noting I felt the style was similar (please don't flame the crap out of me ;) ). Peace
  23. wow... I wish I had a copy of Lo-Fi... I almost got one once... but I was just too slow. ;) oh well, life goes on. Peace
  24. It's slipped to #3 on Amazon, but that's still pretty good. I have to make an off topic comment: Crusader I just saw that your last played is Red Dwarf - Tongue Tied. Red Dwarf kicks ass!!!! (go BBC) B) Peace
  25. I never believed Dave to be a terrible, I understand that he's a perfectionist. I have seen Dave live, and his guitar playing still kicks ass. As an individual artist Matt's music has taken a different direction. One of the strong elements of a Band over Individual production is that the finial product has multiple creative influences. I not sure how much or your stories I buy... I would be interesting to hear what the other ex-band members have to say about the break up. Peace
