Animal Collective Listening Party or Scene from Trainspotting?

January 14th, 2009 by Conor Lastowka · 42 Comments

While checking out this recap of a London listening party for Animal Collective’s latest, “Merriweather Post Pavilion”, I was struck that some of the pictures looked a touch familiar.  So I prepared this game, entitled “Animal Collective Listening Party or Scene from Trainspotting?” All the pics have various forms of ecstasy occurring on a filthy floor with substances scattered about, but was the bliss brought on by Brothersport or sweet, sweet smack?  See how many YOU can correctly identify!

Note: I like the band a lot, the new record is great, I’m going to go see them next week, one of my fondest memories of 2008 revolved around “For Reverend Green”, etc. Please don’t invoke Godwin’s law on me.

1.passed out

2. passed out with one beer

3. passed out happy

4. passed out with stella

5. passed out looking nice

6. passed out lots of beers

7. passed out with spoon

8. guys and garbage can

9. passed out filthy floor

10. thom yorke guy

11. smoking cig

12. baby on wall

Answer Key:  All even numbers were at the listening party, all odds were from Trainspotting.  Number 12 was an unfortunate case of what can happen to you if you stare at the MPP cover art for too long.

    To tell you the truth, I have never seen Trainspotting nor have I been to a Animal Collective listening party…So I would not be able to tell the difference between the two even if I tried to.

    #2 on first glance looks like Warren Ellis, but he went on record last week as saying he wasn’t too impressed with the latest album….

    Could you or some please tell me from what that abomination of an image was spawned? I need to share in its utter disturbing appearance with my family and friends.

    #2- Remember kids: just because you have one too many Guinnesses doesn’t mean you can’t be polite about it.

    #3- Haha, they always just miss those pillows.

    #8 and #9 are too close too call

    #10- Music never tasted so good to this guy.
    And #9 and #10 both deserve the Rare Vertical Moment awards

    #12- Drugs are bad, mmkay?

  • 11 TJ Prostitute on Jan 14, 2009 at 9:53 pm

    Sorry, #10 and #11 are the rare vertical moments, wouldn’t want to deny Mr. McGregor after he went to all the trouble of lighting that cigarette

    “…but was the bliss brought on by Brothersport or sweet, sweet smack?”

    My Answer: Both!

    What do I win?

    I’d say 4Chan, but it’s way too … nice.

    Debauchery tends to trend the same in any context, listening party or heroin hideout, not to be confused with the Honeycomb Hideout. By the bye, has anyone seen a creepy baby crawling on a ceiling? I know I put it somewhere…
