Emo’s a dirty word? Man, you need to hit up anything The World Is A Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid to Die, Dads, Joyce Manor, Joie De Vivre, anything that Topshelf Records has put out, so many excellent bands that you could lump together as emo!

Excellent choices, the best thing about Big Star is that it barely matters what order you rank them in, it’s knowing that one band could produce such an incredible breadth of music in the space of three albums that’s astonishing.

June 6, 2012 on Kanye West – “Mercy” Video (Feat. Big Sean, Pusha T & 2 Chainz)

I’d say Gorillaz are the best thing he’s done. Patchy as fuck sure, but those first two albums encapsulate exactly what it was like in the head of a british music fan who yearned for more than Post-Strokes garage, shitty Libertines rip-offs and turgid chart Grime between 2001-2007
