“How many books have been written about fucking Animal Collective?” demands former Beatles bassist
Keep it up
I like that pic of Macca.
I mean I know they have a song called 'the story of yo la tengo' but I bet the actual story of yo la tengo is boring as piss. They're sitting at home with their slippers on while Sir Paul is off his face and kicking the shit out of some twat in a bar or something
Gimme a "urbomong"
But I'm beginning to think not.
you are amazing
If it is, its the post of the year.
You are without doubt a massive, massive idiot.
I love you! You make my life worth living.
I just can't believe how stupid you are. Like, actual disbelief.
... is that you didn't realise it was a joke. :D
like: ATP, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr. etc
Lampooning Vampire Weekend, The Stokes and Macca is a bit prosaic
'yeah, i mean...it's good...it is good. but could you make it a bit more...''indie''...bit less mainstream y'know?'
It isn't particularly funny. They're easy targets.
But yeah lets have some Belouis Some, Throbbing Gristle and Boris bashing next week yeah? kthxbyenow
I love you.
“We’re just not cool anymore, that’s what it is. I remember when you could buy fucking Beatles yoghurt.” explains the cheerful tunesmith “Yoghurt! Can you imagine? ‘Monoliths and Dimensions’ might be a fucking defining work of symphonic drone metal or some shit, but it’s never going to be commemorated in a variety of fruity fucking flavours is it?”
Hey, maybe you ought let me hear the transcript before we print th-- Oh, the hell with it. Let's run it!
In support of his claims Sir Paul produced a copy of ‘Revolution in the Head’ the Beatles biography by Ian MacDonald, in which several passages praising McCartney’s musical abilities have been underlined and given annotations such as ‘that’s right’ and ‘yes’.
dude has a fucksight more talent in his little finger than any band/artist to have emerged in the last ten years.
Just thought I'd chip in unasked with my two cents.
Plus, to be fair, he doesn't really have more talent in his little finger. If Paul McCartney's little finger was chopped off and set down on a stool in a recording studio, it wouldn't have been able to come up with White Blood Cells.
Beck > Beatles. YEAH.
... somebody took this seriously. Haha.

Did someone hear write it?
If so, congratulations.
Animal Collective are stupid, and boring and other profound critical assessments that I totally came up with myself.
his comments on the actual blog. First he posts as above then about five hours later 'Fuck you' - presumably when he realised his mistake.
I'd almost forgotten about this...
"Turbomong" is my new insult of choice.
