    Wow!!! Funny you guys mention how fucking loud they are. I saw them in 94 at a small club in Seattle and my ears were ringing for three days!  I've been using cotton balls or ear plugs at shows ever since.
    A cool thing about that show..  while we are waiting in line to get in,  Dave A. drops J. off right at the front fucking door and he just walks on in.. pretty cool.  The club was DV8 if anyone remembers that one?

    That's awesome. 

    We got to the venue really early last week. Before and after sound check (which was very loud), J was just walking around the place. It was pretty cool. 

    He seems pretty down to earth.

    Nice! ^^^

    This is a crappy photo from Grand Rapids last week:

    It was right before sound check and that wall of amps and cabinets behind J is the reason people have ringing ears for days after their shows.

    He also has a Fender Twin Reverb in front of him,  near head level, pointed at his face. I never noticed it before that show. 

    It's a good thing he wears earplugs.

    It doesn’t really matter as they’re all good albums, but maybe start with Bug and work forward..

    Where You Been,  Hand It Over and Farm are all great front to back. 

    I'd start with those as they are the most accessible, IMO. The early stuff was really ugly. It's awesome but it turned a few of my friends off of them.

    Hand it Over and Farm.  Yes and yes. 

    I think the BBC Sessions are pretty accessible as well even though J's screechy feedback on track one tends to make me jam down the volume most of the time.

    Agreed also that  I wouldn't start with the first/self titled or Living All Over Me but, despite a few that get passes quite often for me, both have some really great, crazy insanely creative songs on them.

    If I had to list an all-time favorite, I'm with Rob:  Farm.
