Music Jar – week 46

Each week, inspired by A Beautiful Mess, I take the name of a band or artist from a pickle jar and listen to that band for the week. This time around, it’s California pop-ska-rock tromboners, No Doubt.

What I Knew Before
No Doubt were, without doubt, a band who were around when I was coming of age, and absorbing all of the music of the time. I think I learnt to play Don’t Speak on guitar. I only ever knew the hits and, of course, I really appreciated Gwen’s crop tops.

What I Know Now
No Doubt were around for an impressive thirty years and are currently on hiatus. They have more past members than any other band I’ve had the pleasure of listening to this year – thirteen.
I listened through each of their albums, from 1992’s No Doubt all the way through to 2012’s Push and Shove and I just didn’t really feel a lot for it beyond the nostalgia of the hits. Maybe that says more about me than it does about them.

Favourite song(s):
All the cliches; Don’t Speak, Just A Girl, Underneath It All

Favourite album:
Return of Saturn
