youthful merit

Plenty of great CVB songs, but this one's up there in the clouds.



I think Doug Martsch listened to this song over and over while working up Perfect From Now On. Greg Lisher deserves influence credit for that album even though he didn't play on it.

CVB played this song 20 years later, it lacks some bite, Lowery's no longer invigorated by absurdist sarcasm and sounds like he's smoked a few cigarettes and drank a few 750s of whiskey, but really it isn't bad at all:
