Kanye clearly in the wrong here, not to mention that his statement seemed completely uneducated and didn’t even make sense. That being said, I hope he doesn’t apologize. One of the things I love about Kanye is his ability to make ridiculously stupid statements and be completely unrepentant about them.
I would love to see a Julian Casablancas statue & Wooden David Bowie Dummy co-headlining tour and maybe a Watch The Throne type album.
I almost spit out my boiled egg as I read that line.
Kinda disappointed that I haven’t seen The Strokes or Arctic Monkeys on any of these year end lists (Guess I’ll just have to wait for the NME’s list where both those albums will somehow be in the top 5). But I’m really glad Vampire Weekend are getting the respect they deserve for MVotC. I was afraid that album would get ignored because they’ve been written off as a bit of a novelty act sometimes in the past.
Wait… “Within You, Without You” their greatest song. I feel kinda dizzy.
SGT. PEPPERS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? HAVE YOU EVEN HEARD REVOLVER OR ABBEY ROAD!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
I’m not saying anything.
It just looks bad on the label when they hype it up so big they have people guessing they’ve just signed Radiohead or Beck and then it turns out they’ve signed The Notwist. No offense intended to The Notwist. I just feel like Sub Pop was being very intentionally misleading to drum up some hype for a signing that otherwise wouldn’t have even shown up on most people’s radars.
Kanye going full “white-guy voice” in that interview though.
Well they just say “Come as you are” and that’s how their fans turn up. Not sure if it’s mandatory.
I must have been listening to a different song, because the one I heard was awful.
Does P!ATD somehow stand for Bob Dylan in any way? I don’t even know if that’s an abbreviation or just the name of one of those dub steps or what fella.
You may think he loves you for your money but I know what he really loves you for it’s your brand new leopard skin pillbox hat
I just want to spit my gum in that hair.
Seems like a really great, down to Earth kinda guy.
Because it’s really Pixies (minus Kim Deal) and New Order (minus Peter Hook).
My point was that I don’t think I saw a single photo of him from the whole release cycle of Comedown MAchine, no TV appearances, no live performances, etc..
Julian Casablancas is back?!?! I figured he’d become a hermit or something.
I’ve always loved this song. Always brings my inner wuss out.
Oh, so my show has just been outright cancelled instead of rescheduled. Cool, thanks Kanye! I’m so glad I skipped class that morning to make sure I could get tickets.
Honestly I think that this comparison works. That could just be because I hate post-Cream Clapton and Eminem equally though, so I’m probably a little biased.
Because Pitchfork did it first.
Just more proof Eminem is no longer a rapper, he’s a pop star. Although, these days I don’t know if there are even any pop divas that would lip-synch a live tv performance like that.
Just like his career.
Dammit!!!!! As soon as he postponed the Vancouver show I had a bad feeling our Denver show would end up getting pushed back too. Here’s to hoping I’ll be able to get the night off work again if he ever decides to reschedule it.
