YLT, we miss you on the west coast!
First Wayne Coyne, then Morrissey, now Ariel Pink…
I will admit these articles can be mildly entertaining in a TMZ sort of way, but at the same time isn’t the tactic of singling out one songwriter and raking him or her over the coals for a month straight getting kind of old? It doesn’t even matter if these articles claim to be objective — writing multiple articles about the same artist that only serve to highlight misdeeds is manipulative. And I’m not even a fan of Ariel Pink. I just think the witch hunt is getting old and it’s cheapening the quality of Stereogum.
probably because Cat Stevens sounds more furry and cute
Dead Milkmen – Big Lizard In My Backyard, reissued on colored vinyl?? Come to Butthead.
Lead singer looks like the missing link between Christopher Owens and Ariel Pink.
The last line in that song Whole Love never sat right with me.
“And I hope I’ll know when to show you my whooooole… love.”
I never liked how the lyrics were spaced in a way that made it sound like he was about to show you his hole. Reminds me of a line from an oddly-prophetic folk song by Ween called Tried and True. “Could you smell my hole… life?”
Ric Ocasek deserves at least 80% of the credit here.
Morrissey is looking mighty normcore in that pic.
Also that coda in “Obscured”… after the 2:48-mark, it’s pure bliss.
This album is proof that Billy’s B-sides can be better than a lot of bands’ A-sides.
