@10:50

No lie, Sponge was booked to play at my college six or seven years ago by a music productions class. When the day of the show came, so few tickets were sold that they advertised it to now be free, and all you had to do was pick up the tickets from the box office. The show was canceled because no one wanted to see them for free.

Wow that's really sad. I have a vivid memory of my brother singing one of their songs in the dude's voice. We were in the car with my family. It was funny because he was like 5 years old.

gin blossoms are playing 2 nights in the Philippines. for true

Posted by Anonymous | November 1, 2010 1:44 PM

Gin Blossoms actually just released a new album titled, "No Chocolate Cake." Unfortunately it pales in comparison to their platinum-selling, seminal debut, "New Miserable Experience," which boasted MTV smash hits such as "Hey Jealousy" "Found Out About You" and "Allison Road."

I always thought he was saying Hey Chelsea!

Posted by Anonymous | November 1, 2010 2:27 PM

"no chocolate cake"... i bet there's an amusing anecdote to go along with that title! and by "amusing" i mean "extremely boring"

Posted by Anonymous | November 1, 2010 2:38 PM

Yeah take a look at the record cover if you get a chance. Looks like a ZZ Top album.

That cover is a damn shame...embarrassing.

I like how this turned into a Gin Blossoms discussion, shows that some of the people on here are actually nostalgic for underrated 90's alt-rock.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2010 9:34 AM

Gin Blossoms, Del Amitri, Toad The Wet Sprocket, Spin Doctors and Better Than Ezra were all great 90's acts with a pretty decent back catelog. I have seen them all in there hey day and the shows were enjoyable and are better than most of the bands that have started recently.

del amitri hahahahahaha

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2010 9:52 AM

Del Amitri have been making records since 83 fool...laugh all you want...they have released about 7 albums...

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2010 10:15 AM

hootie and the blowfish have been around since 86 and have release five albums. i suppose two albums later and in three years you could say the same thing

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2010 10:30 AM

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2010 1:13 PM

Dude...I have no problem with you stating your opinon on the music but I don't think it is constructive if you have not listened to the music. Many people on here make inane comments without any knowledge of the music and that is the frustrating part.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2010 1:24 PM

ok i agree, and to be honest i had the cassingle of "roll with me" when i was 11. so when i read Del Amitri i thought of that cassingle and laughed/wrote "del amitri hahahaha" you should also know that my cassingle collection consisted of eric clapton's "change the world", big audio dynamite's, "rush" (which I still think is awesome) and probably a U2 tape or something. yeah, if that gives you any indication as to what i was listening to when i was 11, there ya go. always assumed Del Amitri was a flash in the pan, but if you say differently, perhaps i'll look into their catalog.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2010 1:33 PM

I saw Del Amitri in 1996...it was by accident..I went to see the opening band Jackopierce and stuck around because my bus wasn't leaving for an hour or so. I was blown away by their live show. After the show I then bought most of their catelog. Their self titled album and Change Everything are great pop albums. Their greatest hits album is worth picking up if nothing else..
happy listening.

A country without a proper education is a country doomed to poverty. Education is the key to a lasting development for a company. Without education, society is falling apart and can not evolve. So great care should be taken to the level of education and investment for education. Since they depend on our future and our children.
