Duuuuuuuuuuuuude. For some reason, that cover makes me intolerably happy.
awesome, I really hope it's as good as beyond was, maybe even a little bit better.
That has really cheered me up although I have no idea why.
If only J wasn't such a control freak. Imagine having Lou Barlow in the band and not wanting to collaborate more with him. I find it amazing.
lou had a few songs on the last album, he does his own bass bits how much more could they collaborate? and J always wanted Lou to contribute more songs the first time round.
I spoke to Lou about this at ATP last year, I told him You're Living All Over Me was my favourite album, then drunkenly apologised because "I guess J Mascis wrote most of that album", and he explained that he wrote all his own bass parts, and he was very proud of the album himself. I think it's certainly true that he has as much input as he likes!
if you believe Our Band Could Be Your Life, it was only with Bug that J took total control.
what a cover, lets hope the music contained within is on par with the sleeve
