I love Stereogum to death, was just alarmed at the bombardment technique. It’s all good, we all gotta eat…

Is this a big deal or are you guys just trying to deflect away from the fact that you have a gigantic Coca-Cola banner at the top of your page? Oh, and there’s one, no TWO, NO THREE down the side and another one at the bottom, in case i missed the other four.

So, what’re you gonna buy with your first million dollars?

Damn, I’m thirsty. I could kill for a Pepsi…

I’ve only been through it once so far; I don’t see what the big deal is. It’s a band trying some different shit; is that bad? Did everyone want them to make All Hour Cymbals Two? Because that would be the greatest tragedy. Some of you guys need to have your diapers changed. It’s only music…

i was trying to give you more up votes but alas, only one. i’m in agreement with that broad statement- destroyer’s light years ahead of whatever the rest of the music world is doing. what a nice way to start the day…

June 17, 2009 on Bonnaroo 2009: Brooklyn Go Hard

an “extensive jazz background” doesn’t give them the right to murder standards like duke ellington’s take the a-train and caravan and dizzy gillespie’s manteca. really- if you wanna have a pissing contest on here, while trying to stick up for a band that basically “mailed in” half of their performances from ’98 on, go right ahead. i’m guessing you’re one of the fratboy douchebags that contributed to the ruination of the scene- go find a hack circle and a kind veggie burrito, “bro”.
