Went thru struggles, came back with big hits & weird hair. Also Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and Spring Breakers would be a pretty good double feature.

Stereogum house style to do that with band names, even singular ones.

He was supposed to be in there last week, too, but the video of his song got taken down and I had to sub something else in at the last minute.

February 26, 2020 on The Number Ones: M’s “Pop Muzik”
I love the Clash deeply, but "Rock The Casbah" has always come off a bit awkward and clompy to me. Would take every other big Clash single over that one.

I interviewed Ari less than a year before she died, and she was definitely hitting on me over the phone. She seemed cool as hell.

As someone who gets assigned to write about this stuff for his job, I was pleasantly surprised at how non-boring it was. Like "oh huh this is fun."
