Yeah, the name is awful. Way to not care, geniuses.
I think they have both benefited. The Hebronix album and the new Yuck stuff I have heard is better than Yuck’s debut.
Boy, is this article reaching or what? I have not “done away with the notion that the performer on stage must be the immediate source of the music we’re hearing in the room.” Speak for yourself.
Alright, I’m sold. Prediction: Like the new POND album, this one will be great but be rated in the 5-6 range by Pitchfork (probably Ian Cohen) because they still don’t have anyone there who appreciates psych rock.
Drake is clearly out of the loop. He needs to read more TMZ.
I had no idea that he made delicious gourmet chocolate.
I would think he is referring to his penchant for melding punk and blues. No, he isn’t the first to do that either, but after the Gun Club, I don’t think there is anyone who did as much with and for that idea as the White Stripes. It was an idea that I feel kind of fell by the wayside for a long time. The White Stripes found a way to put their own personal stamp on that idea and make it seem new and exciting. There were bands obviously inspired by them who found some success in the wake of White Blood Cells. Jack White has verbally or otherwise promoted a number of those bands that were trying to carve out their own identity within that genre. I rejected the Black Keys from the get-go because I always thought their songs just sounded like a watered-down White Stripes. Maybe that’s how Jack feels, or maybe they actually did swipe melodies. I would be interested to know if the latter is the case. I could sit here and go through the Black Keys’ catalog and find out myself, but ugh, I don’t really feel like it.
That might make for a great reality show: EXTREME Fathers!
Wow, that Greg Ginn has certainly become a man of sterling principles. I guess this newfound righteousness means he’ll finally be getting around to paying Husker Du that mountain of album royalties.
Ah, The Onion beat me to it:
