Great interview! It also reminded me to check out the rest of the True Trans series as I had only seen the first 4 episodes when they initially popped online. Definitely hope that Laura continues to work on that book she mentioned as well, I’d purchase that in a heartbeat!
Speaking of MM and dicks… remember all those rumors way back when that he removed his ribs so he could, ya know, pleasure himself? Too bad that happened then and not now… Mark Kozelek could have had another hit on his hands: “Marilyn Manson, Suck Your Cock”
Bush must of had a thing for palm-muting… while I don’t think – or remember anyway – trying to master “Glycerine” on guitar, I did my fair share of practicing “Machine Head” and I’m pretty sure that song alone made me learn the art of the palm-mute.
I’ll always have a soft spot for “Greedy Fly.” The video always stuck with me too, mainly because it was the first and last time I saw it, as MTV banned it immediately afterwards. I looked it up on youtube a couple years ago to see if it was as graphic and dark as I remembered back then, and while I still don’t quite understand what’s going on – nor did it scare the crap out of me like it did in my youth – I think it holds up remarkably well.
I thought the same thing when I saw that category… not my particular #1 favorites, but hey, for the Grammys? Could be a lot worse. At least they’re all “rock” in some sense and they avoided the “Lorde is totally rock, man!” thing that was happening last year.
I prefer the Pure X remix feat. Xiu Xiu personally.
RTJ made me late for work this morning… I flipped shit when I saw the download waiting for me in my inbox and had to load it on my iPod immediately. Luckily, I’ve been at my work long enough for my boss to count “downloading an album” as a legitimate excuse.
It’s gonna be an awesome weekend, guys.
I loved Devotion, so I’m hoping I’m not let down by this… looking forward to streaming it on my way home from work tonight.
Otherwise, it’s been Roomrunner, Lanegan, Young Statues, and Nude Beach for me throughout the day.
I’m also still kinda bummed that today was supposed to be the release date of Charli XCX’s Sucker until it got pushed back until Dec. Alas, I guess I should be happy it’s at least landing before the year is up.
I didn’t think my excitement for this album could grow any more…
…I was wrong.
