I don’t think MK or SKM will be invited to play any more festivals… and that’ll be a good thing for him (not his scene) and for every other unfortunate band who is booked at the same time. I own nearly everything he has put out… and while I somehow love some assholes in music, I find myself sharing the sentiment of yesterday’s essay… the constant bitching in both song and life are really wearing me down.
At least when Oasis were at their bratty best, it felt more fun. He must be doing something right, if you look at the most commented stories, they are 4/5 Sun Kil Moon stories.
I give the War on Drugs credit for not engaging.
“Carry Us All”
Future ISLANDS (on an island!)
Look out Rick Astley…
Hands down favorite.
This would be a good podcast.
Is that Eric Bachman (Archers of Loaf, Crooked Fingers) on guitar??
Wait a tic… is this list by Timothy Bracy, as in Mendoza Line Timothy Bracy? I loved your band. Lets be friends.
We Have the Facts and We’re Voting Yes
Mumford & Sons didn’t appear out of nowhere. I feel like people here are giving them shit, as if they were created & stylized out of a major label test-tube. Anybody can read a wikipedia page to get an idea of where they came from… try it!
Its also not a terrible thing when a band hits with a mainstream record that isn’t quite awful. I can’t say I’m a Killers fan, but that first record was pop music that nobody should be ashamed to listen to. I’d equate the first Mumford & Sons record to that – a big hit that is quality enough that you shouldn’t discourage a musically-taste challenged friend from embracing. It could open new doors…
