May 23, 2017 on Paul McCartney Pays Tribute To Roger Moore
This is so sad. I listened to both Badmotorfinger and Superunknown last night and was just blown away by how great they still sound and in some cases, better than I remember. While that run of songs on Superunknown from the title track to The Day I Tried to Live is such an epic stretch of great tune after great tune (interrupted by the lesser Kickstand), Slaves and Bulldozers will destroy all - it is a lumbering beast. However, the most upset I got was listening to Seasons off the Singles soundtrack, holy shit, that song seems sad now.

April 18, 2017 on Watch Korn Debut Their New 12-Year-Old Bassist
I hate to say it I was a teenage metal head in the eighties who owned both Justice for all and extreme tapes. My big jam was Gary Moore. Anyhow, even I was snobby enough to know that most of the hair metal was rubbish compared to Metallica etc but just having loud guitars was enough sometimes. However, even at my worst I wouldn't have listened to half these songs. It was actually Faith No More and Jane's Addiction (both considered metal at the time) which were my gateway into the Pixies and a whole new world of music opened up. Fun anecdote: on a school trip, a friend of mine asked the bus driver to put on some music. He gave him a copy of Master of Puppets and as soon as the main riff of Battery kicked in the bus driver ejected it and threw it out the window. Australian bus drivers in the 80's were not ready for Metallica...

Legion is incredible and agree on the music. When they busted out Feist's undiscovered first a couple of episodes ago it was beyond perfect.

March 23, 2017 on Justin Vernon Responds To Report About Brad Pitt’s Sad Bon Iver Listening Sessions
You're probably right but I'd speculate being married to Brody Dalle would be a factor. Being married to an outspoken feminist and immigrant to the US (sure, her story is different but I'm sure it resonates) and the extremism of Trump's view would test Homme's conservatism. I think anyone in the public eye would want to have their views known = we can see how this is going and if you're famous, you want to be on the right side of history when people look back at this appalling fucking mess.

So I guess the inauguration will consist of a flying drum kit, fireworks, dancing strippers and Vince doing his most regal version of Girls, girls, girls.

As a life long fan to Bob Mould, this write up made me smile. Hard to believe the intensity he brings to every single show but he always shows up giving everything he can to these songs and the audience.

September 9, 2016 on We Have Reached Peak Vinyl
I haaaaaate the Black Eyed Peas (sorry, I just do) but I also remember when they were a credible alt hip hop act pre-Fergie. It seems weird now but they played just before NIN at a festival in the 2000s I was at and everyone loved that song about Saturday. Were they any good on those early albums (ie not the suckage we know and hate) or is that just a false memory?

This really is a mystery. I saw Mudvayne because they were playing on the stage next to At the Drive In at a Big Day Out. So while I was waiting for ATDI, I got to witness them in full flight - I like some metal but they were pretty rubbish from memory. Then ATDI came out and played for 15 minutes or so before someone threw a shoe at Cedric and they left the stage in a huff = (it was a great performance but they really fucking hated Australian audiences: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbWjkOhW5m8). Disappointing but I did get shake Joe Strummer's hand that day so not a total write off...
