The weird thing is The Monitor never really grabbed me, but I really like Local Business. Go figure.

The problem is a lot of people view that $200 per month internet/cable expense as their admission fee to a buffet of “free” entertainment. Too bad, you know, zero of that money goes to the artists. Spotify isn’t a perfect (or even a particularly good) solution for musicians, but it’s at least a semi-legit way to consume music that gives people less of an excuse to engage in out-and-out piracy.

In this particular case involving Kevin, that may be true, but he does have a bit of a track record of being needlessly combative with other bands. The man enjoys talking shit. I’m sure Ted Leo’s manager was alluding to a specific incident that resulted in a punches between Ted and Bob/Nate Farley.

Yeah, that was pretty ridiculous. It seems like, of all the band members, Kevin is the one who’s had the spottiest relationship with Bob over the years, so this doesn’t surprise me too much. I feel kind of bad for him because he was so sweet to me and my girlfriend after a GBV show last year.

I love Bob (avatar acknowledged), but yeah, he can really be a dick when he wants to be. Must be the high school jock in him.

Wait, so this means I was a sophomore in college 10 years ago? Ugh.

Hmm, hate to say it, but I’m not seeing an awful lot to get excited over. The 2013 In Utero mix and that Nilsson collection might be nice to have.

What’s the “black on black” …Like Clockwork? Is it just different artwork? How many damn editions of that album are they going to put out?

If he threw in an original copy of Propeller, that opening bid would seem a little less insane.

Agreed. In the past few years, I’ve gotten to see a bunch of bands that I thought I’d never get to see live: Pavement, Guided By Voices, The Jesus Lizard, The Pixies, Sebadoh… the list goes on. And you know what? They all sounded GREAT. I could care less if it was just a paycheck to them.

Also, did Pavement ever explicitly claim that the reunion wasn’t about money? I don’t think they ever pretended that it wasn’t.

Agreed. Really enjoying these.
