I was thinking “even if one person…” so thank you.

August 28, 2015 on Justin Bieber’s New Single “What Do You Mean” Is Really Great

Just yesterday we had the entire catalogue of Richard Thompson rated and put out on the table – one of the greatest musicians of the modern era – with little fanfare from the usual Streogum readers – now we have a Bieber/Skrillex joint and the page lights up like it was a Smiths reunion. Just sayin’…

i meant “Henry…” being hands down even an album that RT doesn’t even like i gather – forgetting that, not to list it.

August 27, 2015 on Richard Thompson Albums From Worst To Best

When i saw this list come up in my newsfeed I actually squealed with joy and oured myself a beer to get stuck in – My favorite webzine counting down one of my favorite catalogues.

part of me was totally deflated though as I reeeeally prefer Electric and Dream Attic to any of his solo stuff without Linda – but with a catalogue as cramazing as RT’s and fanhood so feverent, you’re gonna have issues with whatever goes on, and like you said pretty much: there ain’t no bad RT albums….EXCEPT Henry The Human Fly – did we just forget that one? i mean – i would make me feel better to have that dead last rather that You, Me, Us. Is this an oopsie?

I’ll take this all day long over MOST Foo Fighters tunes.

It just seems like Kurt is th new Hendrix now. Actually, Hendrix never put out a stand-up set.

He’s definitely trying to shag her and we all know it.

August 6, 2015 on Ryan Adams Is Covering Taylor Swift’s 1989 In The Style Of The Smiths

I might be late to the commetns here, but for such an important article, this was a little long winded and hard to read (over the photos) due to the new layout – frustratingly I skimmed over most of it after I got your point.

also- yes, I’m in bands, I’m a vinyl collector too, (always have been) and the vinyl thng is wearing me out and making it impossible for smaller artists to press their shit and very frustrating to see stuff like the FROZEN SOUNDTRACK and re-pressings of other shite clogging up the presses and racks. no one needs that on vinyl. I’d rather have a mis-pressing of SKM – Benji that I never play.

Nice photos – also, cold hard proof that Napoleon Dynamite’s brother is on keys in Alt-j

I don’t like him and yet I have 3 of his records. That is simply genius.

May 25, 2015 on Jack White Explains Why He Doesn’t Talk To Meg, Doesn’t Like Touring Or NYC In Latest Q&A

“Once you start writing about the road, it’s time to get off the road”. I love Kozelek – but unless he sings another verse about my town, (he did in UK Blues) I’m tired of hearing his tour diary.

Are people talking through this? we wait 50 years for a show and you can’t shut up for an hour?

Was just thinking about how a screen with changeable art would work in my house – then I thought about a party scenario where some drunk girl just wants to show you her pictures from her gap year in Spain…ugh…

I wonder if Nick Offermann has re-instated his gig – we need to know what Ron Swanson is doing about this malarkey.

Has no-one brought up that Ed Sheeran song that sounds EXACTLY like “Let’s Get It On” yet? I mean…..

March 14, 2015 on Marvin Gaye’s Family Thinks Pharrell Ripped Them Off On “Happy,” Too

Kind of a precident for that I think would be John Fogerty’s publishers suing him over him sounding too much like himself in the 80’s. I can’t recall the specifics but apparently he ripped off “Run Through The Jungle” (His own Creedence track) with one of his solo songs. He was sued by CCR’s publishing/label and had to pay restitution and wasn’t allowed to perform CCR songs for like 15 years!

Somehow this is much more ironic knowing that Ryan is most likely sober. whish I was there.

PS – Norwegian air is on strike – affecting lots of people trying to get to CPH this week.
