Comments from sarahpaol

it is known that Kim Fowley raped Jackie Fox of The Runaways, maybe most famously in Cherie Currie’s memoir, Neon Angel. but Currie wrote as if it was a groupie and not Jackie Fox.

its not the fault of Cherie or Joan because they did not speak out against it or try to stop it. rape is the fault of the rapist and no one else. Kim Fowley is a rapist and a monster and his coverage in places like Pitchfork, the praise he received in NYT Obit, and in Rolling Stone as an “icon”, “Svengali”, and “legend” say nothing about assault, young girls, or rape. the press covers what they want to cover.

i say, cover the story straight. give us the facts about his life. we are still covering up for men in death. if he was a songwriter, producer, *and* rapist, why not say it? also consider how far he spreads and his work with Ariel Pink. influence matters.

Carl, what you’ve written here is a perfect, absolutely perfect, dissection of the White Stripes. i’ve encountered MANY people who write them off (read: haters) who don’t understand the simplicity and the concept of the band. you hit the nail on the head and let the cat out of the bag, over and over. everything about this is aces. it’s fucking magic.

this list is pretty much singles, for the most part (and all excellent ones at that) which i am annoyed by and still not surprised by. my favorite due to Jack’s ability to rhyme words, use syllables, have breath control and just the fucking riff is “Girl, You Have No Faith in Medicine” – probably the most underrated White Stripes song of all time.

that and “Blue Orchid” should be on here because it kicks fucking ass.

Rape Me and Dumb are among my all time favorite Nirvana tracks. Cobain’s writing is so honest and this band just, rocks so fucking hard. i love Bleach a lot. whenever i’m feeling anxious or angry i just turn on School, Blew or Love Buzz. i wont lie, i spend most of my time with Live At Reading. i can never get over how young Grohl was at the time and Novoselic’s loose bass strings are my boyfriend. so yeah, i’d say i’m a Nirvana fan. i love the early stuff, i love it all. (also, if you haven’t indulged in Azerrad’s Come As You Are: The Story Of Nirvana, you’ll fall even harder.)

Earl is, just, really great. the subtle and obvious hints of Odd Future up and down the track listing are the best delivery OF efforts yet. this record was worth the wait.

also, the fact that Hockley-Smith references Mary Karr is major. everyone should read her books. KU-DOSE.
