Find Me On:
HEY! They’ve changed the picture and yet the caption…. still perfect!
“I could go to the Rolling Stone office and fucking shit on top of a boiled egg, right” a perfect caption for that picture
So they’re either naive, ignorant, brainwashed by Sony or all three. Never has the name Cults seemed so appropriate.
(I should add that as it happens I’ve been quite enjoying their new album)
So have you listened to The Dreaming yet?
You know if you haven’t heard The Dreaming you can just say. Nobody will think less of you. Well nobody will think less of you than they do right now.
So you’ve got to release your album in the way they say albums are released? Good to see they care about the music (For those who don’t know, Kevin is right about the name coming from a phone company it is now sponsored by Barclaycard so classy stuff all about the music)
The part that actually always annoys me most and rarely seems to get mentioned is the fact that it costs money to enter. The press surrounding it constantly refers to it in a way that insinuates that this is the awards committee’s/judge’s/whatever’s definitive list of what they think are the best 12 albums of the year when in actual fact it’s just their list of 12 albums from people who released albums in the way they dictated and then paid for the pleasure of consideration. Hell, come to think of it, the press attention around it makes most people think the artists and/or their labels/management/whatever don’t even have to put themselves up for it in the first place.
So if I know my political analysis, a mashup-coalition of the other five songs would be better than Get Lucky? I NEED to hear that
This was my reaction. So much so that two-thirds of the way through it I looked and discovered that, as far as I can tell, it is the second longest Pixies track.
Except, of course, it’s hard not to suspect who the cause of the legal problems might be….
I imagine the sheer difficulties involved in casting a band as dull as Starsailor explains why they are avoiding depicting his last production work…
Has anybody else seen this: http://www.tinnitus.org.uk/taw2013
Coincidence or is Kevin Shields just trolling British Tinnitus Association by putting this out this week?
a day which also remarkably appears to coincide with day of boring narrow minded kids making ageist comments like “old fart” to dismiss anyone who doesn’t fit in with their idea of what music should be on gum… also… GET OFF MY LAWN!!!
I take it when Dave offered to sing Paul just said “Get back to where you once belonged”. I’ll get my coat…
So I guess we’re just going to ignore J Tillman’s first 7 albums?
Seriously folks, there’s still a month left!!! Any one of these people could have a sudden December boost. How can this list possibly be considered in anyway accurate?
Jherek Bischoff – Composed…. not that anybody else seems to have listened to it…
HEY HOLD ON A SECOND ON THAT BEST ALBUM DECISION PEOPLE!!! Remember the year isn’t over until Kevin Shields says it is….
So is that artwork designed to dupe fans of death metal christmas songs?
Radiohead, Soundgarden, Pavement… I suspect tomorrow’s acoustic set is will reveal that this start up is just an excuse for Billy to add coffee to his hate rant list
WHERE’S PETE BEST?
This from the attention seeker who couldn’t sell records under his own name so he has to use his old band name.
Yeah that’s true. For some reason in my head I was equating sheet music with notated music. In fairness, it’s hardly my fault that the ancient world was so attached to rock or stone tablets. I guess that was probably the fault of the RIAA of the times who likely objected to the move to papyrus… “Tablet copying is killing music”.
It’s quite funny that we can describe publishing music in the manner that it has been released for the vast majority of the few thousand years of music history as “unusual”.
As Androids are never truly “born” can they really have a nationality?
There’s a shop I go into every morning on my way to work and I swear that they’ve been playing this every other day over the last month along with “Sing It Back” by Moloko. Not sure if it’s just terribly small playlists on local Scottish radio stations or just that they have a tape they can’t get out the machine but it’s like the summer of ’99 all over again and I can’t deny that it has been consistently bringing a smile to my face for the brief moments before I realise I’m on my way to work…
