Don't forget racist! (Sorry, I forgot--no criticism allowed.)
Why yes there are flowers on his mic stand. Yet not enough for his usual over the top shtick to hide this performance behind. https://i.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/001/038/787/4d4.jpg
There's no way this wasn't intentional. Videos don't just leap out of one's subconscious straight onto film, they go through several stages of planning and take many collaborating crew to get made. We are left to ponder the actual reason for the carbon copy and her false explanation.
Surprised to see any hate over this fairly innocuous project. Indifference maybe. Let em do their thing for however long. M Ward needs a retirement plan, he doesn't have that sitcom syndication cash rolling in.
Have there been recent one-hit wonders? Like in the last 5 years? Feels like it's more of a radio-era phenomenon. Songs don't really disappear with streaming and they can get new bursts of interest randomly with viral clips. On the other hand, one-note personas, those are certainly a thing.
Apparently this was Liv's first ever live set in front of actual fans. Kind of crazy to think about. Feels like there's a little extra behind that Outdoor Masker's punches on the Outdoor Non-masker.
Marr's the man, but he's being a little bitch here. Moz's refusal to reunite for a payday must be really starting to get to him. This is good fun and their "This Charming Man" version is better than his solo version. Moz goes way back with Rick and loves it no doubt. https://www.nme.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/the_last_of_the_famous_international_playboys_CD_single_artwork.jpg
This may be the best collection of elevator and phone hold muzak of all time.
As much as a landmark this album remains for reasons enumerated here and beyond, the for me this record has always been less about the actual music, but more of an idea, a symbol, the making of backstory, a before/after equator line in their career. They made better before and better after, but YHF remains the sun around which their other planets of albums revolve around.
If you still give this ridiculous person any of your time or money, time to take a long hard look in the mirror.
*Made possible by Stereogum favorite, Morrissey! The Stereogum favorite selected the Riot Fest preview day acts and invited JM to play.
It sounds like this wound up in that limbo territory where it isn't quite terrible enough to be an ironic camp classic, but bad enough to just be frustrating and not entertaining. I give it five bags of popcorn.
She's (still) the best.
If your hairline is creeping back and you can grow a decent beard, it's a pretty solid look. Krist Novoselic was in this zone for a while before he gave up the fight and shaved it all.
REM is tough to cover well, particularly the early stuff. There's a temptation to dress up their spare arrangements with extra instrumentation and it often loses the unique alchemy those 4 guys generated. This is a good example of that.
