Great writeup! I ran into these guys in the parking lot of the Echoplex when they played with Boris on Friday. Missed the set, sadly… Here’s that Mogwai cover, in its shrill, clipped-vocal majesty http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GyIggA4b5w
The way I understand it, Carney was a cool kid in high school, Auerbach a nerd. The irony being them teaming up to do Rubber Factory, a cool revivalist record in its own right. Seeing Carney act like this, though, reminds of his roots, as a cool kid. Cool kids are generally like these PR masterminds, good at making fun of different people, creating mini campaigns if you will, that demean their target. Seems like Carney’s just being a popular kid who’s donned cooler glasses and pseudo-thriftstore designer threads. And now he has Twitter, and the world to entertain, instead of prom, a flyer and his high school student body. Oh well.
I think all these girls are pretty great. In retrospect, my guess is this will be the Alanis Morissette of the hybrid underground/mainstream “indie” scene.
This is what’s been missing in my life. Thank you.
