Matthew Good Band – Loser Anthems B-Sides And Rarities EP

I am a simple man. I see b-sides and rarities on an EP from a band I like, it’s an instant purchase! Of course, this disc is 17 years old and I wasn’t aware it existed, but that’s probably beside the point, right? Sure!

This release was limited to 35,000 copies. Mine here is #18,870.

Some fun trivia I learned online: the songs Flashdance II, and My Life As A Circus Clown, were demos from the album Beautiful Midnight. Also, the Japanese characters on the front cover translate as “Are you high now, crazy kids!?” Fun!

What I heard, in listening to this, was some awesome Matthew Good Band songs. And if you like them, you’ll like this. There’s even an appearance by Holly McNarland and, I’m not gonna lie, these two vocalists go well together! After the intermezzo, the recording quality changes into a more live sounding, better quality and more immediate sound. I loved those last few tracks.

Hit It Or Quit It? Hit!

Tracks: Flashdance II / The Man From Harold Wood / My Life As A Circus Clown / Intermezzo: M. Good V M. Trolley / Flight Recorder From Viking 7 / Life Beyond The Minimum Safe Distance / The Fine Art Of Falling Apart
