I'm a CoD fan too. I'm pretty excited about those remasters but wish there was going to be a vinyl release. I was into some of the Celldweller stuff as well. Were you ever into Klank? As I recall Klayton had some connection there as well.

Was this meant to be released already? Release dates are such moving targets.

All feelings about Bizkit aside, I think it's great that these folks did this. Kudos to them for having some fun.

Ugh. A shame indeed. One of my favorite local joints. One of the only places getting "new Nashville" right.

April 13, 2016 on William Tyler – “Gone Clear”
You absolutely could come up with different genre descriptions for all those bands, and there are already. It doesn't seem unlikely to me at all that someone who digs Wilco would have no interest in Of Montreal, so they are, in fact, helpful. It's lame to be dogmatic about such things, but they exist for a good reason.

Nearly the whole video was shot in Nashville . The shots of the concrete ruins that he's standing in hold lots of weight in particular given the idea behind the project - that's what's left of Starwood Amphitheater out in the dilapidated suburb of Antioch, an old-school rock venue where once used to could catch the likes of Skynyrd or Sabbath (Ozzfest) or what-have-you. The good old days.

Forgive me for being a pedant, but the Hag was in attendance at Johnny's San Quentin show, not Folsom.

"It seemed too ridiculous to be weird"? I don't if this was a typo or what, but this is my new favorite phrase. Will be using liberally.

Seeing the classic GBV lineup live three times during their recent run was a freaking blast each time, but the albums always left me a bit cold. I was bummed the classic lineup called it quits again, semi-excited that none other than Bobby Bare Jr was announced as the new lineup's bass player, and now...well, this song is killer. I don't know what to feel anymore. GBV IS DEAD. LONG LIVE GBV.

March 10, 2016 on Guided By Voices – “My Zodiac Companion”
One example - there was an episode of his podcast titled "Obama Is A Foreign Born Muslim!!!" which got deleted shortly after the Bataclan attack. Also, he's an outspoken Trump supporter. Maybe "bashing" was a strong word, but we might be splitting hairs. His views are pretty thinly veiled.

March 10, 2016 on Eagles Of Death Metal Frontman Suggests Bataclan Security Was In On Paris Attack
That said, yes...definitely cutting him some slack given what he's been through, and especially on this particular point as it's entirely plausible. But I don't think it behooves anyone to overlook the crap this guy has spewed for years now.

He was known for saying shit like this prior to the attacks though. He's a conspiracy theorist nutjob. He got a free pass from most people for making kick ass rock n roll, but he's long been a gun-slinging, Muslim-bashing, conspiracy-perpetuating, drug-and-sex-crazed yet Bible-thumping neocon. It's bizarre.

I see four things I really want: Emmylou Harris - "Wrecking Ball" (first time on vinyl) Deftones - "B-Sides & Rarities" (first time on vinyl) Jay Reatard - "Blood Visions" (10th Anniversary Edition, includes a bonus 7") GWAR - "Scumdogs Of The Universe" (reissue) I don't feel any consumerist weirdness about any of these choices because I'd happily go buy any of them at any time if they weren't released on RSD. In fact, the first two I've been wanting on vinyl for a while.
