thanks for clarifying this memory for me! Carl’s line about that riff being played at sporting events brought up a vague memory, but now i absolutely remember the Blue Jackets skating out to it, and yes, it did always rule!

Billy’s next project is a covers record. potential tracklist:

When You’re Strange
Lover Lover Lover
Strange Fruit
Lovers in a Dangerous Time

i want to hear the CHVRCHES cover of Run2me, please.

disagree on Run2me! i just listened to it at quite a loud volume and it made me happy. but then i like the things it’s referencing.

totally agree on the “strange lovers” meme that permeates the record. i totally get Michael’s point about how they could be placeholder lyrics. lorem ipsum.

agree. i’m listening now and Tommy is throwing a lot of the same punches as Jimmy used to, but he’s got that Tommy Lee hard-rock swagger to Jimmy’s jazz chops.

just listened to the stream. if someone had told me 20 years ago that Billy would make a Cars/Cheap Trick record with the drummer from Motley Crüe, i would have told them they were insane. but somehow, in 2014, it works.

we must be listening to different streams then, because i got at least three 30-second amex commercials inserted between songs.

little known fact: Lars’ mom runs sound for The Late Late Show.

i love Anton Corbijn’s work in general, and have always admired his concert film work for DM – clean, simple shots; a great sense of space and scale; and he always keeps his cuts mellow and returns to the wide shot so your eyes don’t get lost. DM always has some of the most unique and arresting video design incorporated into their live shows and this contortionists-shot-from-below thing is amazing. i’m assuming that is also Anton’s work, but i’m not sure…
