I personally think They Want My Soul is fucking amazing. It’s just as good as GaGaGaGaGa or Gimme Fiction.

‘you know honesty is my jam’ . . .

I dunno: Lamby’s aggression seems totally understandable to me.

I’ll never forget seeing Greenday when I was a kid and watching BJA jump in the crowd and fight a bunch of goons that were feeling this girl up against her will. He must have been hit in the head like 10 times, but he still, dragged the girl to safety, jumped back on stage, counted off, and absolutely ripped through Burnout. Dude has my unqualified respect ever since. It’s shitty no one let them decide what they wanted to do.

Oh man, was that ever funny. I read some interview where someone from Pitchfork was saying they regretted doing that or whatever. Pitchfork definitely lost something when they made the decision to tighten up the ship (remember the Kid A review, the perfect album from Trail of the Dead, the guy who made up a fake story about The Beastie Boys (who also wrote that Kid A review!!!)? Now it’s all “Pitchfork reduces Can’s whole career into a shitty 5 min video.” And they have seriously talented writers on staff. It’s reminds you not to complain too much when Stereogum links to a Spin article because they also publish incredible longform pieces on Ted Leo. And, if we’re being honest, who doesn’t want to know what the guy from Smashmouth is up to if only to finally decide once and for all if he’s really Guy Fieri. Or the clown from ICP. And not for nothing, but there have been articles published about both bands recently on this site. Just sayin’.

Hey fam.

I’ve been going through some shit lately. Bad shit. Mental health kind of shit.

Haven’t been online much. Haven’t commented on sg much. Wasn’t able to help RJ on L&H2 much. Generally not able to do much.

But I’m doing better. I love y’all. Thanks for being you. Keep being you. Take care of y’allselves. Love your people. Love each other.

Drink up and be good.

I’d have aggression and biting issues too if I had to live with them for 4 years. Even peeing in my own mouth might not seems like a bad option at that point.

At this point Radiohead is just becoming a scapegoat. Good on Yorke for sticking to his guns.

And honestly, fuck Ken Loach. You can keep spewing shit about having to choose sides, yet not even once has a requested one of his films being pulled out of cinemas in Israel. “I, Daniel Blake” has been showing here for months. I guess when it’s your own film earning money here suddenly there’s more then black and white to this. Fuck off mate

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

Score:-10 | Jul 11th

it is time for people to admit AND LOUDLY COMMUNICATE the simple fact that many, many people hide their anti-semitism behind the bullshit lie that they are simply anti-semitic. And worst of all are the many self-hating Jews who have no appreciation for the fact that their ability to be safe and successful in the modern world is tied directly to the existence of a strong and independent Israel. Roger waters is the worst kind of bigot; he wont even be honest about it.

As far as I know, Thom Yorke is a vegan. As far as I’m concerned, vegans have the moral high ground on just about everybody. Factory farming and the cruelties animals endure is as bad as any holocaust or occupation.

Memo to Andy: Your butthurt over a prominent music biz guy having different politics than you is not a music story. Save the wailing for Thought Catalog.

God forbid he stray off the leftist reservation. Scott Adams is actually brilliant and makes a lot of good points, on a daily basis. BTW, “Petty Misogyny”, what is that?

I’d never heard this album before today. I started reading and felt compelled to listen along as I fell deeper into the story. What an absolutely treat. Thanks for this!
