The first album, Foo Fighters, I was just so afraid of anyone understanding anything I had to say – but I had no choice for this record. For The Colour and the Shape, producer Gil Norton made it clear that he wasn’t going to be satisfied with a bunch of nonsense lyrics. He wouldn’t let me have dinner until I’d written some lyrics, said Grohl of Norton. Every time I wrote a bad line I’d get 40 lashes. Though the band tracked 14 songs at Bear Creek, very little from those sessions would ultimately make it onto The Colour and the Shape. 6. Everlong began life as a Sonic Youth rip-off. With its ringing, sustained chords and earnestly romantic lyrics – long rumored to be about Louise Post of Veruca Salt, whom Grohl was briefly involved with following the breakup of his first marriage – Everlong remains one of Foo Fighters’ most beloved tracks.
Dave Grohl wrote and recorded the entire album himself, apart from a guest guitar spot by Greg Dulli, with the assistance of producer Barrett Jones at Robert Lang Studios in Seattle, Washington, in 1994. He claimed that he recorded the album just for fun, describing it as a cathartic experience to recover from the death of Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain.

Foo Fighters were formed in 1995 by former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl. Unfortunately the bands musical quality stopped rising after the Foo’s second official release The Colour And The Shape. After that album there seemed to be a slight decline in the quality of the bands music. Although they haven’t been able to top their second release yet, I myself till have high hope for the future. The Colour And The Shape is sort of a gloomy, depressing album. Many tracks seem to deal with relationship problems and etc. Based on that you probably won’t want to listen to this album everyday, unless your life is extremely depressing.
It's pretty cool to see the instrumental tracks for TCATS. However, there is no archive for any. MOGG tracks from the album. Does Nick happen to have them? 196 Views.
As for this new band, 1997’s The Colour and the Shape was the first Foo Fighters group album, as the 1995 self-titled debut carried the band name but was mainly a solo effort by Grohl. This album also contains tunes which are a bit more introspective than the material on the debut. After the success of that debut album, Grohl assembled a proper band which included guitarist Pat Smear formally of The Germs, bassist Nate Mendel from Sunny Day Real Estate, and drummer William Goldsmith, who let Grohl move out from behind the drums during the live performances.
