Seconded. It can be annoying when a comedian laughs at his or her own jokes, but with him it's goddamn endearing

I probably listened to Pearls to Swine more than any other album last year. His Tiny Desk Concert is well worth 15 minutes of your time http://www.npr.org/2016/11/08/501153843/adam-torres-tiny-desk-concert

I had a subscription to NME 10+ years ago, and one issue came with a CD curated by Morrissey. I remember reading that he was the head of a New York Dolls' fan club, but man did he love some glam. A lot of artists from this list are on it, as well as some more recent (at the time), glam-ish bands (The Killers, Franz Ferdinand). Here's a track list: https://www.discogs.com/Various-Songs-To-Save-Your-Life/release/1082172

I would highly recommend the song 2HB (not to be confused with North Carolina's HB2). It was covered by Thom Yorke and others for the Velvet Goldmine soundtrack. Both versions are perfect.

June 16, 2016 on 9 Red Hot Chili Peppers Songs That Don’t Suck
One of the best festivals I ever went to was an ATP festival in 2004. Look at this damn lineup: https://www.atpfestival.com/events/atpmodestmouse Keep in mind this was 2004 – “Float On” was just blowing up for Modest Mouse, Wolf Parade’s Apologies hadn’t even come out yet, Sufjan was barely known, The Shins only had two albums and Lou Reed was alive. Not to mention this was pre-Pavement and pre-Dino Jr reunion Malkmus and Mascis. It was a ‘90s indie rock fan’s dream

Skip Spence was also in Moby Grape, whose eponymous first album is another crate digger find. One of those songs, "Omaha," was covered by The Golden Palominos, with none other than Michael Stipe on vocals, on their LP Visions of Excess. Worth checking out if you like the R.E.M.

Actually they're claiming 250 million listens in the first 10 days, not 46 days. So that's about 8 listens per day per user, and assumes every single subscriber listened to it. And Jay-Z is suing somebody for inflating numbers?

I guess this has been around a while, but you can also watch AIC perform 2 songs from the Singles premier party in '92. The "Junkhead" performance is fantastic https://youtu.be/pRf60AIdU0M

Anton Newcombe says Apple threatened to remove his music from iTunes if he didn't participate in the free trial. If he's being truthful, I'd say that's beyond nefarious. http://www.factmag.com/2015/06/17/brian-jonestown-massacre-frontman-talks-apple-music-bullying-tactics-for-not-complying-with-royalty-free-policy/

It's a helluva coincidence that they opened a store in the most expensive part of Venice right after getting that Kickstarter money, while simultaneously sending people $1.50 worth of records for $24. If you don't have a record store near you, go to Goodwill or the Salvation Army. You'll find these records and save yourself 20 bucks

I'm slightly more partial to B1000 since it was my intro to the band, but Alien Lanes is definitely 1b to its 1a. "Game of Pricks" is probably my favorite song, but "Always Crush Me"...well, it always crushes me. I was also lucky enough to seem them on this tour: July 21, 1995 at the Cat's Cradle (thank you gbvdb.com. Seriously, if you want to waste the next few hours, check out this site)

You will definitely want to check out Jeff Garlin's podcast interview with Ryan Adams whenever he releases it. I was at the recording last week, and Ryan lets loose with a bunch of Bryan anecdotes. Seems like he is finally embracing the connection and has a good sense of humor about it. Plus he teaches Garlin how to play guitar.

FYI the vinyl exists, but you'll likely have to plunk down 60 bucks for it. I did, and I have no regrets http://www.discogs.com/sell/release/5923280?ev=rb http://www.ebay.com/sch/Records-/176985/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=sun+kil+moon+benji

Is Pulp more popular in the US than Supergrass? Blur and The Verve each had a hit, but I don't get why Pulp is an elite band and Supergrass is a wannabe (by the way all four of these bands are/were consistently awesome). Also, that Ocean Colour Scene song is a complete rip off of "I Am the Walrus" right? The melody of the verse seems identical
