Years ago, I remember vouching for these dudes as one of my favorite bands, and people would stare at me like I had seventeen heads. I don't regret it: they really deserve more record sales and plays than they get!
I still love Rotting Pinata like I did in '95 & listen to it regularly, & I can't say the same for all of my mid-90s cds. I also don't understand why this awesome album has been neglected & often found cheap in used cd bins over the years... & is still vastly underplayed from the looks of it on here :-/ *sigh*

I don't know how you can call them a noise group now when they aren't even noise rock but simply just hard rock/post-grunge instead of grunge/alternative. Anyway, I like both incarnations as well. "Higher 1 & 2", "Wax Ecstatic" and "Flop" are my current favorites.
I saw Sponge recently in Austin and reviewed the show for my website. A friend of mine got some great photos of everything as well. Check it out: http://www.redrivernoise.com/2010/10/concert-review-sponge-at-red-eyed-fly.html
The most underrated alternative/grunge of HISTORY. It's a shame this guys weren't more famous... they have all, songs, voice, scene... good albums. Just a MAJOR problem with record labels... a shame they're not as maybe Alice In Chaians these days.
when i saw them at a club in 1995, it was "Rotting Pinata" that caused an annoying mosher to squash my toe... it was bruised & bleeding & everything, & i was limping for a few days. haha... good times tho, Sponge really put on a show!!! 1 of the more memorable 90s bands that i saw... Ned's Atomic Dustbin & Letters to Cleo were on the same tour. Ned's was also just as memorable!!! they just don't make bands like that anymore :-P
