nah production is where it’s at. im sure going to a dylan,beatles,stones, show was great and all but with all the rock mythology you rarely hear how you couldnt hear anything cause of all the girls screaming,the crappy primtive PA or that they only played for 25 minutes. Ultimately in 50 years people are going to love the beatles because of thier studio recordings. It should be noted that while alot of groups are great live they never capture that in the studio(MC5,kiss,fred neil),. in a studio recording all the tiny flaws in ones playing become apparent which otherwise would be ignored due to the visceral nature of live performance. there will allways be luddites like the folkies who bashed dylan for playing his OWN material on (gasp!) phony electric instruments. To quote duke ellington ” if it sounds good it is good”and to create a heirarchy which devalues such based on arbitrary judgments of authenticity seems a self serving endorsement of mediocrity.
there is no moral center in pop music. artistic integrity is a middle class privilige anyway.
yeah but he doesnt have anything to do with the production. who is doing it for peso btw?
i hope i can be one of her mistakes
damn divorce really fucks up things for the kid if its before they leave for college.
i cant stand his post mod songwriter bullshit. he’s a producer. no shame in being a producer.
I just find it strange that a supposed fan of The Strokes would endorse a web site that refered to Julian Casablancas as a 3rd rate Lou Reed.
I’m sure your steve winwood cover will make you the next big canadian thing. However, you better learn to be pretty unoffensive fast. For a variety of arbitrary reasons they wont hesitate to question your authenticity to undermine your actual music.
I find it hilarious that people have forgotten all the shit pitchfork gave the strokes( for being handsome, for being rich,for having an image, having influences) only to a few years later suggest that the blatant musical appropriation and calculated classist image of vampire week were totally “punk rock” and iconoclast.
I wouldnt worry though. You obviously know how to kiss the right asses.
+because thats the only way i can explain all the shit that comes out your mouth whenever someone has a different opinion than you : p
