he just defined “wingin’ it”.
I will part with a month’s wages to see Hall & Oates and Slowdive in the same field. I’m sure there is a ‘what if…? kinda brainwave beginning for a collaboration as well somewhere?
it’s a better theory than a guitar player who has a KFC bucket for a head.
did anyone else notice that LOOP is back together too?
I agree. I’m a huge fan of both, and yet i still get more excited at the prospect of seeing Slowdive in my lifetime. they were always one of those bands that i loved and would passionately turn friends on to them. It may even be my fault that there are so many weak Slowdive revivalist bands around, especially where i live in Scandinavia. I have never heard or used the term “shoe gaze” so much as in 2013, and i can’t even remember hearing the term in the 90′s the first time. I really hope they continue with the Mojave 3 vein of a more organic approach, rather than dragging out all the effects and retro gear like the younger bands, Halstead is really an amazing songwriter and proves time and time again that fact both with the Mojave 3 records and with his solo work, As far as Halstead/Goswell’s work together: i really prefer the first Mojave 3 record to Pygmalion, and although it’s kind of a folky affair, it’s still more “shoegazey” than most of the revivalist stuff out there today. I would like to see a Stereogum feature on the bands around Slowdive, Mojave three, True Widow and their solo projects!!
i guess you’re waiting for that Oasis reunion then matey?
two words: Mojave 3.
she is just such a frigging muppet.
that’s what i thought! why did he not even like the albums?
the phantom album is “Swords”. and it is pretty cool.
a fucking men.
…and i finished the list. horrible flowery writing just slating every morrissey album. shame on you.
you guys have lost the plot seriously. I’m writing this only after seeing “ringleaders” at dead last. fuck.
putting a pizza ON the record player would still be better than Lulu.
This is actually not the worst thing i have ever heard, AND – it made me mad hungry for some Pappa John’s. I think “Cheese Days” is my song of the week. Not only for the pizza or Velvets Snobs out there.
This is the coolest thing that PJ has ever done. ever.
I don’t think anything can top the original live recording of “American Skin” from the live in NYC album. Bruce didn’t sing that one that much after 9-11.
Yup. that was pretty much my bible. I even bought it on tape, which had a Sonic youth track on it instead of the Nirvana track, which I still call “Verse Chorus Verse”
and the world keeps turning.
Such a wonderful song, it really took me somewhere. I hope the world gets More Koz.
what the actual fuck???
well thom, we are just going to have to illegally download the SHIT out of your solo albums. I don’t know how else to get them on my computer, which sadly, is how i listen to most of my music. (your music).
“mother and child reunion” lovely track!
arrrrrrgh. i don’t even LIKE u2 (in theory) but this list is just all fucked up wrong.
this is about a million times better than the shite they were doing with Paul Mcartney.
