that’s actually not that much for somebody living in a big city, with a real job. also how do you afford living with that little income? that’s like $2 an hour if you work full time.
you have to pay for email if you have a vanity URL like Zooey@ZooeyDeschanel.com or something like that. But it seems like that would be a business expense not a personal expense
not sure why i feel like arguing this…BUT…I do
other bands that released stuff on Vagrant in that time period: Alkaline Trio, Face to Face, and MF Rocket from the Crypt. Not to mention that crapshow Dashboard Confessionals.
is it me or does my chemical romance dude look like James Iha and Billy Corgan morphed?
big A little a like the Crass song?
agreed 100% i’m still not sure why they aren’t bigger than they are. If bands like Fucked Up and Pissed Jeans get love from the indie rock crowd, why can’t The Bronx?
yikes. for a guy who wrote one of the biggest songs of the decade that was in like 30 commercials and 17 movie soundtracks, and a girl who starred in a movie with will ferrel, you’d think they could afford that stuff on their own.
this video makes me want to never go to San Francisco, ever, ever again.
agreed 100% though I think Fun Fun Fun Fest may be a bit too rock and roll for your average Vampire Weekend or Animal Collective fan.
I disagree. I think there are bands that are by definition not as interesting or fun to listen to or rocking as other bands. Sure, it may be subjective, but its still the fucking truth.
it takes a strong (and clueless person) to anoint the killers as any more talented (or less annoying) than 30 seconds to mars.
the bartender is Brett from Bad Religion. I know I’m the only person on this site who would notice or care, by the way, but Bad Religion are pretty legendary and older than most of you at that.
please don’t compare Vivian Girls to No Age. Or please listen to more music so you know what you’re talking about. Thanks.
Jawbreaker played pop punk. Dirtbombs play garage punk. fugazi and husker du were more post-hardcore than post-punk. sonic youth was the closest thing to post punk. replacements were pretty much a college rock band with punk roots.
the operative word here is “punk” and all of those bands have a huge part in punk rock’s history.
i love how it says “no punk” and then the first band i read is The Dirtbombs and then Jawbreaker, Fugazi, Husker Du, The Replacements, and Sonic Youth all crack the top 30.
read my comment again. would you be surprised if he was a pretentious dick?
i’ve never met thom yorke. he could be very nice. and i like radiohead for the most part.
but would it be any surprise if he was a huge asshole? you spend 15 years having every review and interviewer kissing your ass and praising your genius while making a lot of money and selling out arenas and festivals the whole time and try not being a little bit of a pretentious dick.
how did this comment get so many negative votes? is this really that important?
the nike thing was ridiculous considering the company, but not as ridiculous considering it was for a skateboarding event but the forever 21 thing is ridiculous on all sides.
anyone try the hot sauce? (http://www.epicurious.com/articlesguides/blogs/editor/2007/12/great-minds-mus.html)
why be a blue collar NJ band when you can be a blue collar East Bay band?
also. this song is boring. and i don’t hate this band.
these guys are great. glad to see some quality challenging indie rock on stereogum.
right. except for the DIY music scene was basically born out of Los Angeles.
you’d have to know something about music to understand this, though.
you must be from some shit flyover state. LA bands suck?
also don’t forget Bedouin Soundclash.
i have absolutely no desire to see this tour, but it seems like the peeps in No Doubt hand picked all of the support and its a pretty solid lineup for an arena rock tour.
