Pixies on Fallon

November 29th, 2009 · Comments Off on Pixies on Fallon

Given that Doolittle is my favorite Pixies record I’m really quite torn regarding attendance of their upcoming show in DC. I don’t want to ruin the amazing memories I have from their reunion show in ATL. That show was positively magical and I had chalked it up to being the last time I would see […]

No Distance Left to Run Trailer

November 29th, 2009 · Comments Off on No Distance Left to Run Trailer

A Blur documentary?! Hell yeah. (Kinda makes me wish I had attended the reunion show in LDN in 2009. Sigh.) (via AJW/DiS

I Blame Coco: Next Year’s Model

November 20th, 2009 · 3 Comments

I usually star the Guardian’s “Band of the Day” picks in my Google Reader and go back and listen when I have time. The best one I’ve run across lately is Paul Lester’s pick of I Blame Coco, who just happens to be the daughter of Sting. Now, regardless of what you may think of […]

New Interpol to sound like old Interpol

November 20th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Despite Paul Banks’ active promotion of his impressive solo debut, Julian Plenti is…Skyscraper, the fourth Interpol album is still on track for release in early 2010. Drummer Sam Fogarino has even alluded to its close relationship to Interpol’s darkly expansive 2002 debut, Turn on the Bright Lights, telling Paste Magazine, “In trying to move forward, there […]

Beck swoops in and finishes the fight

November 20th, 2009 · 2 Comments

My favorite piece of news in the past week is Beck’s musical response to that clueless buffoon from The Fiery Furnaces, who tried to insult Radiohead, blog-style, but missed the point completely. And in attempting to cover his ass retroactively, took a swipe at Beck. Well, Radiohead, in their lofty chairs of utter superiority, ignored […]

Peter Murphy pulls out the cape for Twilight 3 cameo

November 6th, 2009 · 3 Comments

It is both fitting and alarming that Peter Murphy of Bauhaus and solo fame will be making a cameo appearance in the third Twilight installment, Eclipse. If Stephenie Meyer co-opts Bauhaus as an influence and millions of tweens are introduced to the likes of “Stigmata Martyr” and “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”, thus creating a Hot Topic […]

Nirvana bassist interviews Bleach players in wake of reissue

November 2nd, 2009 · Comments Off on Nirvana bassist interviews Bleach players in wake of reissue

To celebrate Sub Pop’s 20th anniversary re-issue of Nirvana’s Bleach, bassist Krist Novaselic has interviewed two key players in that album’s creation, drummers Dale Crover and Chad Channing. Crover is, perhaps, better known as the drummer for the Melvins, one of the bands that inspired Kurt Cobain to start Nirvana. Chad Channing’s tenure ended with […]

Jawbox reunion will literally consist of one song

November 2nd, 2009 · 1 Comment

Turns out the buzz about a Jawbox reunion begins and ends with the bands appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on November 23rd. The seminal DC post-hardcore quartet will celebrate the re-release of its major label debut, For Your Own Special Sweetheart, with a one-off appearance on Fallon’s chat show, bizarrely enough. But there […]

Weezer will team up with anyone

November 2nd, 2009 · Comments Off on Weezer will team up with anyone

My appreciation for the Weezer catalog ends with Pinkerton. Everything since has been pretty consistently terrible, particularly the “Beverly Hills”-era, though I do have a soft spot for that “Hash Pipe” single off the Green record. But beyond that, bad news all around. So, Weezer songs in 2009 seem beyond crazy to me, not to […]

Pixies “La La Love You” live 10.15.2009

November 2nd, 2009 · Comments Off on Pixies “La La Love You” live 10.15.2009

Now that the Pixies have extended their reunion into a never-ending trip down memory lane, it’s getting harder to feel genuinely supportive. When the band first announced it would be reuniting 6 years ago, the excitement far outweighed all of the cliched cons that go hand-in-hand with any band trying to recapture its legend post-prime.
