If I was at a Barbecue, and there was no meat, I'd be like "Hey Goober, where's the meat?
retracing that period eh. what next? "we thought we'd investigate what can be done with a pop video"..
of humour failure if there was a joke?
its too early for this shit, sorry.
pumpkins fan at all, but most of the reviews come across as a corgan biography post-pumpkins, rather than a record review..
slightly interesting that this review (and the one on pitchfork) both singled out the album's lack of "lightness" or orchestration...i thought these were reasons the pumpkins were derided the first time around? we all know the score with billy corgan, but i dont think an entire review should be dedicated to his prick-like tendencies. they should be noted sure, but the album, actually, isnt that bad.
may i ask?
And Kill em All is moy foyve
built to spill. another tremendous album to add to the list.
and yes, they have been signed to Geffen for years now, but really, it leaves a slightly bitter taste in the mouth (boom boom). Like stated above, this isnt just another band and this is not just another company. You only have to watch The Year That Punk Broke to see the nature of the reversal in attitude. I dont understand the view that "oh everyone does this now so its ok" - its still worthy of discussion and criticism
you dont have to
that I dont value the lives of those who would listen to hadouken?
When I realised that five pounds couldnt buy me anything to eat
and i like dead meadow. props to mindy on the catch.
blew me away
The new stuff really isnt up to much, but dear lord can they knock out the hits.
in the slightest.
as I've always loved their early output, thank fucking god.
Breeders - Happiness is a Warm Gun
Galaxie 500 - Ceremony/Listen the Snow is Falling/Dont Let Our Youth go to Waste
Neil Young - All Along the Watchtower
is his name. The 's' was just added by everyone else
worst genre ever?
speaks the truth
problem with trying to posit any type of indie continuum, or music continuum for that matter, is that the best bands of any period nearly always get overlooked during their lifetime. The progression of music is always charted after whatever waves or leaps forward have been made. Therefore, it wont be surprising for people to talk of this period in the years to come as being incredibly healthy musically despite the shit thats around at the moment. If we were to take what was on the radio in the 80s or the 90s as what was really going on in music at that period we'd always say it was shit, because the mainstream and great music have only ever coincided with each other at rare points in the last forty years. That whole slew of bands mentioned in the article are all the music industry's attempts to try and control and predict the way music "should" be going, and such contrived measures really add up to nothing in the long term. Of course there will be a few who will get to see some amazing bands produce some amazing music at the peak of their powers, but our appreciation only ever seems to gain elevation retrospectively.
theres too many of them
is much much better than drums not dead. their best tracks are the ones that unfold, less concise.
its a shame that even needs to be said
i am actually there.
to read it.
all pop music is shit.
will be good. i can feel it in my bones.
i own lars' stick.
but they constantly whip out that cheesy shit with the hand-clapping kid. god that was annoying.
and put walked around listening to galaxie 500 (spec. listen the snow is falling) at about 6 this morning. rather nice.
assimilation of "transgender" into these issues a bit odd
if thats your opinion then why is this a story?
and nice, but the execution seems a little off to me
but elan vital well received? I thought it was panned
thats just loverly
