looking at the above picture of the two of them, you'd never know they were on drugs.

i remember when albini was tapped to produce the album. everyone was like "uh oh, so long nevermind". everyone thought they were going to go for the throat. they did, but it wasn't a big black album, which was what everyone also thought was going to happen.

lemme break down the video for you: it's actually a pretty typical day in canada and is basically what happens all the time up there. even david bowie.

welcome to the alternative/indie music world, where this has happened ad nauseum since time began (the early/mid-80's). it's rinse/repeat for some people: 1. band puts out incredible first or first and second albums. buzz begins. 2. band puts out third album, by this time mainstream success and hype are bubbling out of the pot. 3. band, who has already been on a evolving trajectory with trying new sounds, actually strays away from making the usual, by numbers approach (which would have been met with just as much scorn from the peanut gallery, i assure you) 4. people who were into them since the beginning (which they will tell you this several times while blasting their new stuff) become hostile and hate new sound/fans/album rinse/repeat. the only band i've seen escape this is radiohead, and i don't know how the hell they did it.

do yourself a favor: put some headphones on, and play head down. that should erase all butt rock thoughts from your head.

1: slaves and bulldozers 2: beyond the wheel 3: searching with my good eye closed 4: gun 5: head down 6: nothing to say 7: 4th of july 8: jesus christ pose 9: mind riot 10: room a thousand years wide hon mention: their cover of devo's "girl u want" is fucking amazing. but in all honesty, unless slaves and bulldozers is on that list i can't take it seriously. and nothing from ultramega ok? no beyond the wheel? that song is like a fucking wrecking ball.

oh, and the irony of the sheep metaphor on the front of a shirt being sold at forever 21 on the front didn't get by me.

if you don't give a fuck about t-shirts, then why did you license minor threat shirts through forever 21 for $30? that's your solution to bootlegged t-shirts, of all things to get pissed about? after decades of this? jesus, i guess sooner or later they all need the money.

a loss. plain and simple. most people know his songs and they don't know they do. they know after midnight by eric clapton, but they don't know the slow, sexy heat that was the original by this man. i can't tell you how many hot nights in the south i've put on troubadour, or okie, or any of his albums and just existed. because that's what his music let you do: exist. it was so simple, and laid back, and perfect. jj cale is a weird portion of music: he's the guy that other people got famous for doing his songs, and they don't know he exists for the most part. AND HE LOVED IT THAT WAY. he never made it his ambition to be mega famous or rich. he just loved playing his songs. he's even more velvet underground than the velvet underground. those that listened to him were already in famous bands, and they all flocked to him to see what he was doing. this is a loss. i'll never forget the first time i heard him. it was halloween night in charleston, s.c., many many years ago. his sly voice came up over his music, an instantly i was hooked. he was heartbroken, a heartbreaker, sexy, lost, found, and every thing in between. this really hit me. i've been a huge fan of jj's. if you've never heard his version of after midnight, if you only know the eric clapton version, listen to his. it's hot, full of sweat, and slooooow. it's what it's like after midnight. his input in the 70's is virtually flawless. from naturally on into shades, there's not one clunker. not one. and it all sounds so effortless. because it was for him. his talent did us a service. good night, mr. cale.
