Save your time, you most definitely should not be excited. Linsanity >>> Codeine.

I liked them better before they changed their name from Robitussin.

Nope, you're just a sucker.

They were painfully boring and uninspired 15 years ago, what's changed?

Funny how many second rate to completely horrendous hipster bands of the last 10 years stole moves from this band. Yet the hipsters shit on them proving they have no clue.

That reminds me, I'm due for my fix of codeine anyway. Thanks for the reminder, BV!

WHO?

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2012 3:52 PM

Hank, exactly what "moves" did anyone current steal from this band? They were hardly innovative or worthy of mimic.

I don't get why people consistently feel the need to add worthless comments illustrating how clueless they are when it comes to shit they don't like, or haven't even heard. Get a clue or better yet, fuck off.

I remember them, heard them, lived and listened to music when there were around. Codeine JUST WASN'T ANY BIG DEAL. They were kind of boring, and didn't make anything interesting.
I feel the need to clarify the reality that just because a band re-forms after 15 or 20 years doesn't mean that they were anything important to begin with.

Thank you 5:12 and 6:23 for contributing with logical and relevant comments. Totally agree with 5:12, these comment sections have turned into a gathering of clueless, juvenile morons! Fucking dirtbag fuckwads!

6:23 - They clearly weren't your thing, but that doesn't mean that other people didn't like them and continue to like them. You may not see them as "important", but they're playing atp at the request of Mogwai, who were clearly influenced by them. I for one will be happy to see them again.

Why no Pittsburgh date?

8:21 - at least 6:23 knows who the fuck they are/were. Are you seriously going to scrutinize one of the only legitimately opinionated comments in this thread?

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2012 9:52 PM

9:52 - Yes, because it's the only negative opinion in this thread worth scrutinizing. Great, he knows who they are, all he dose is add a slightly more well informed negative comment to the thread. He stated his opinion, I disagreed so I stated mine. All you did was criticize me without adding anything of any value to the thread.

You still haven't told us what "moves" any contemporary bands have "stolen" from Codeine.

Posted by Anonymous | February 22, 2012 12:06 AM

Codeine absolutely WAS innovative, though "interesting" is subjective. There was no one else making such glacially paced music at the time, and I can't think of anyone who's actually done anything quite like it since, either. Powerful, heavy, and noisy without being sausage doom, quiet and melodic without being wimpy indie... it remains its own thing. Discuss.

Lets hear your record...(6:23)....

bedhead, the new year, jesu, etc were all influenced by codeine...
