Jay Reatard would beat the LIVING SH!T out of all of you if he were alive to read this.
Rest in peace Jay, you left behind some fantastic music. I hope you’re up there still jammin out looking down on us poor sods who can’t get over the controversy and unfairness of dying young. “don’t get me started?that’s just retarded?” You’re songs were all gold.
He kinda looks like Mick Jagger in that shot.
This guy RULES. I realize there will be posts following this saying otherwise, but for a manic musician he’s the most brutally honest heart on his sleeve guy out there. Just sayin’.
they are really great. that’s all i have to say! i am looking forward to this release…especially since it’s on vinyl.
will this have anything to do with the novel by john updike? or is the title just a rip off? ps i suggest reading the novel. that may be time better spent. that’s just me though and my damned opinion again
exactly. wtf ever.
nonetheless, mr. reatard may still have a point.
i’m now going to follow him on twitter for more future outbursts. those are always fun.
Allow me then to clarify my opinion (note: opinion) in Proper English Words: I think Sigur Ros sucks. I heard them open for Bjork who sings beautifully in Icelandic, but really, this band? *yawn* OK…next!
*usually by a man on lexington ave in nyc who has pirated copies of cds for sale on top of a piece of cardboard.*
Help! I’m watching 2 Sigor Ros Videos at once! It’s twice as annoying. They’re only appealing to me if 1. I suddenly understand Icelandic 2. wish to levitate 3. have a hangover and must have music on.
i love her still for this fact: SHE MAKES ME FEEL SANE. seriously. I’m not as crazy as she is! phew. She has guts
lucky. i’d play kazoo if i could get a chance to be on stage with frank. oh well. and none of those kids will ever wonder what ever happened to pong.
HA woah…that image…haven’t been that disturbed since aphex twin’s come to daddy…but yeah…eh
potpourri of art rock!
david, thank you for letting me take your seat on the subway when you got off the 6 train that one afternoon during fashion week. sorry i kept staring at you. i do that to most people anyway…
he rules. he’s on top of the scene. he’s got the time and talent to be hipper than i ever will be. i’m sure his ipod’s music library is better than mine.
i’m still unclear as to why Trent would pick out Prince or Rivers Cuomo to pick on
billy corgan is now updating his manifesto…expected to exceed 32 pages … with an index
I had a mishap at the record store blinded by my possibilities and bought the Black Lips on vinyl INSTEAD of the Black Keys…too late…i opened it…and being vinyl it was already not returnable…and yeah…they are lazy, sloppy and they sound stupid drunkstonedwhatever half the time. I was embarrassed for my roommate when i cranked it up. OH WELLLL
Yeah, I’m so bored. Really. I’M BORED WITH THIS BAND.
I KEEP MISSing (oops) this stuff…i need to watch more late night tv i guess
This is dumb. I want to know what is *really* going on between these guys. Too much creative judgement here…The only way we can get to the point is if we ask a deaf person who needs subtitles if the movies have any cred. Done.
lookin like a cult leader there, billy…i want my money back from your show at constitution hall last november, also, please…
Green Day’s music is kinda like Bubbalicious…tasty for a minute or two then you want to spit it out…
ooooh weird, i just started listening to them today for the first time in ages…thanks for new stuff
I just don’t envision Morrissey referring to himself as “The Mozzer” to begin with…funny, but, twitter = such a damned waste of time about useless random thoughts nobody really cares about most of the time anyway?
Kind of like my post. Sigh.
he’s my hero
Agreed. I can’t wait! I haven’t seen them since………..’92?
