I'll get the ball rolling...

Top two for me would be Monster Magnet's Spine of God and Jimi Hendrix's Radio One. Either album played from track one is a gauranteed fire up. YEEAAARH!!! :D

I gave The Bronx's first album a good thrashing in the car on the way down to Bells this year. But I don't think the other Swellnet guys liked it quite as much as I do. Great pre-surf music though!

I'm finding Mozart's opera highlights very relaxing and conducive to getting loose in a crowd or busting the fins out at a solo beachie.
Also Grizzly Bear Yellow House.

Not that I use such language myself but I would have thought Neil Young's 1990 F*!#in'up would be a tune some at Swellnet would listen to regularly, because they certainly do. Especially certain Victorian reporters ... talking about talkin up 1 foot cross shore peelers. Now that leads me to Neil's 1994 tune Piece of Crap or his 1995 Scenery with Pearl Jam.

No no no Paula, Neil Young won't do. If you want to blow off your frustrations you need something with a little more anger. Perhaps Fucking Hostile by Pantera would help. Ah shit there's goes that language again...
