Chubby Checker absolutely deserves to be in the hall. He may have beat the twist until it was limp and bloody (Twistin Round the Globe), but he practically invented novelty dance music, had 5 records in the top 12 at one point, has some great over looked early records, and was a hell of a performer. I saw him once at a County Fair and everyone, EVERYONE, in the audience was dancing 5 years to 80. Not many performers can do that.
I am absolutely loving this album, definitely one of my favorites of the year. I’ve agreed with all the positive reviews and features but no one has mentioned how unbelievably great the drums sound on this record. Definitely what pulls it together for me.
Man, if Jack White isn’t cool anymore with the stereogum commentari who is?
Motley Crue is on classic rock radio, Friends is on Nick at Nite, and there are Black Flag cover bands you can pay to see. That’s it. I’m old.
Everyone here seems to really be hating on the Flaming Lips recently. I thought we all knew this was a pop band. They have created a career on a hit pop song and they’ve play with Justin Timberlake. They have a hugely entertaining live show that caters to an extremely diverse audience. They made a god damn christmas movie. I still love the Flaming Lips. But ya know we should all bow at the alter of Coldplay and be pissed that Wayne Coyne and company want to make pop albums, cover albums, and bad ass experimental stuff. Jack White can have 35 easter eggs on his new record, Wu Tang can sell one album for a bazillion dollars, god forbid the Flaming Lips want to release albums in gummy skulls. I guess haters gonna hate.
Absolutely love this album and definitely the Liars album I go back to most. Listening to it while laying in bed staring at palm trees on a glaring LA summer day is one of my favorite music experiences.
