According to Wikipedia, Mingus’ first album as bandleader was released in 1949, which corresponds nicely to his unreal 1959 output of Blues & Roots, Mingus Ah Um, and Mingus Dynasty.
How about they call the band “One of These Things is Not Like the Other”?
And when is the Megadeath/John Cale collabo dropping!
Where are all the chicks at, man?
One man’s box of Bjork tuning forks is another man’s box of Rammstein dildos.
Well of course he was on the show! Don’t you remember that part of Don’t Look Back?!?
Reporter: Bob! If you could sign an album cover for any type of TV actor, what type would that be?
Dylan: Well, if they have a pawn broker TV star, named after Chumley the Walrus, and he approached me in Las Vegas, I figure I’d sign that record. *enigmatic smile*
So many shows, so far away from the states. And though Jarvis is certainly a slippery little noodle, after seeing him live after that first solo album, I must say Steve Mackey has actually aged a little better. He’s a straight-up fox, for real.
Now let’s talk logistics: is Russell Senior up in this? Could that be the reason they’re so light on post-Different Class material?
Well, with the rapture happening on Saturday, I suppose it’s possible that it comes out in June, or September, or whenever the eternal consciousness of Yaweh emits the CYHSY-particular soundwaves into our ethereal spheres.
yah their version of Rock Band sucked, dood.
Fun Fact: the people on the cover are actually deep in prayer about an upcoming shirts v skins basketball game.
I’m too curious: what constitutes a Pynchon tattoo? Is it just text? Or an image?
Full disclosure: I’ve only read Gravity’s Rainbow and The Crying of Lot 49, so your answer will likely be over my head.
Very sad, and surprising given that all the news from the TVOTR camp was fairly positive about his condition.
Whatever happened to listening to Prince to get laid?! Sadly, though, it does seem that all of my posters of Prince in his underwear hanging around my bedroom seem to mostly turn girls off. Not sure why.
So which of the Johns is the Johnny that will not be kept down? Or maybe they’re referring to their collective John-ness?
way out in Seattle
young Kurt Cobain
snuck out into the garden
put a bullet in his brain
snakes in the grass beneath our feet
rain in the clouds above
some moments last forever
and some flare out with love.
I like Nirvana. Sometimes I wish that I liked a current band as much as I liked Nirvana in 1994, but oh well. So it goes.
Ah, god, that voice can soothe even the worst of times. Help us, Bill Callahan, help us get through this surprise cold snap at the end of March.
Only one band per day on the Festival Republic Stage? That must be the loneliest stage in the entire world. Or, they are giving those bands a nice 8 hour set to finally try out the Jazz Odd-Eye-See they’ve been dreaming of.
Still can’t get enough of that tune-yards song. And the Wrens tune is an astonishing treat. Thanks!
My one word would be “bad.”
But in the Micheal Jackson, Bad Seeds, flirtatious “oooooh, you’re bad” sense! The best bad that can be!
Oooooh I like it! Always getting higher until the end when she finally admits it, that’s an interesting way to keep a simple and repetitive melody intriguing.
It’s the Battle of Britpop Round 2, Rumble of the Mumblers! In one corner wearing the blue, red and white Union Jack trunks we’ve got Liam the Dre-am, the Mancunian Mauler, bringing brawn and bawdy brawling all while slouching in a stance not fit for a fighter but also not to be taken lightly! And in the other corner wearing the Stanley Donwood designed brown, white, red, burgundy, and sickly yellow trunks we’ve got Thom the Professor, the Oxford Ox, whose scintillating smarts will sack any sucker sorry enough to step into the ring with him!
One night only! Glastonbury 2011!
A video on MTV means selling out? Not a chance! They’re just getting a good spot in line to be on the new Beavis & Butthead reboot!
I’m definitely old enough to know that tune, sadly. And though it made me angry as well, I seem to recall it being a monster hit and the whole world falling in love with it, line dancing to it so long that they lost all geometric perspective and found themselves suddenly in a world of achy breaky cubism.
Maybe it was that he brought line dancing into the living rooms of America? Which trend Beck thankfully put to bed in the Where It’s At video. All praise be to Beck.
Just one question, maybe all you Billy Ray fans out there can help clear this one up: what exactly did Billy Ray Cyrus do to piss the whole world off?
This is all before enabling Hannah Montana, of course, because I know exactly what BRC has done to piss the world off lately.
So you have no room for Back That Azz Up in your life? Bummer.
No, see, the challenge is getting the marble to descend the steps without falling off the edge. And also the marble needs to simultaneously ascend and descend at the same time, that’s also a little bit of a challenge.
