Comments from Stephen

So if a band hasn’t got round to making a follow-up record within so many years of their debut, it automatically gives some random fuckhead the right to cash-in and make it for them? What sort of artist would be happy selling themselves as a cheap substitute for something better anyway,

I wouldn’t be surprised if human rights groups try to get this video pulled. And to be honest, I would probably support them. I found this really uncomfortable to watch. And I’m not sure what sort of parents would volunteer their kids for that sort of emotional fuck-up.

2:40 = pure terror!

always been a Pete Yorn fan…but this project just doesn’t interest me. The single plain sucks.

The guy on the left looked like he had just shit his pants and was trying to stop it running down his leg.
And it was an awful performance. They sounded lost and confused.

Why else would innumerable rockstars over the years have done drugs if it wasn’t cool? You’ve obviously never taken a shot of heroin to the eyeball.

At what point does relentlessly sucking money out of your fanbase become bullying?
$40 for the same stuff a lot of musicians are Twittering to us for free anyway.

No one ever wrote a Heartbreaker happily married and off heroin.
Not saying he should start using again…but y’know. Just a bit? Maybe?

That was the most embarrassing thing I’ve watched all year. The guy clearly won’t be content until he’s taken a massive shit over every ounce of what made SP a once-great band. But when I look at his little bald head and innocent smile in his Twitter display pic…I just feel really sorry for him…

You don’t. You don’t prefer this over the original. Just apologise for saying that, and then we can both go about our days.

Thom Yorke is a goggle-eyed fuck.

I like the Pumpkins and, although Corgan is obviously an egotistic fella, I have never really disliked him. This move confuses me more than anything else. Hopefully he’ll explain his opinions in a little more depth sometime. I suppose when you look at the marketing used for Zeitgeist this shouldn’t really have surprised anyone.

By the way Brendan Wheatus, I didn’t think you’d be the ‘indie-blog’ type. Do you like Animal Collective?
You and that Third Eye Blind guy who posted a few months ago should make your own blog.

it seems the hipster community has turned it’s back on M. Ward. That can only be a good thing. The guy outclasses all their darlings in terms of songwriting and substance.

Yes it is nice that he’s interacting with the people Chocolate Bobka/mcgregor. Let’s just hope he continues to say hello now and again on atease after you’ve informed the whole fucking world about it.

This was actually pretty good. Wouldn’t have thought Paul McCartney would’ve been too hip to this type of humour, but he played it just as well as Colbert. Perhaps too well as some comments would suggest.

I didn’t know they were dating either. I still bet M. Ward was having a piece of that on the side.
