in case you were wondering, i recently rekindled my torrid love affair with the man known only as biker fox. jealous much?
i should mention that spoon was added to the the echo project festival here in atlanta. hopefully i will be attending the festivities.
dawson’s creek is on right now and i forget how cute katie holmes used to be. also, what the hell happed to josh jackson?
suprise, fuckin suprise, rich and his the cable and the tweed was voted best atlanta blog by the people of this fair city as reported by creative loafing. fuckers! in all seriousness, he does a great freakin job and i can only wish to be half as cool as he. congrats, rich!
me and sonic youth have a more of an admiration based relationship rather than one based on actually being able to make it through an entire record. actually thats a lie, i can make it through goo and daydream nation. i think hansel really summed up our relationship when he so elequantly had this to say about sting, “sting would be another person who’s a hero. The music he’s created over the years, I don’t really listen to it, but the fact that he’s making it, I respect that.” just replace sting with sonic youth. out of the other side of my mouth, thurston has a pretty great solo record out now, in case you didnt know. its called trees outside the academy and while there is still a lot of his signature fractured and spazz out guitar work, its pretty toned down or at least as toned down as thurston can get.

i dont know much about frightened rabbit except that they are from glasgow. a place that if i were to believe the men of mogwai sounds like the most depressing place on earth. of course you can use belle and sebastian as an argument to the contrary, but in my mind they arent from glasgow. anyway, frightened rabbit are much more in the vein of american indie rock/pop than anything that i have heard coming out of that neck of the woods – which isnt a lot but enough to formulate an opinion.
they gots a new record, sing the greys, coming out on 10.2 and are going to tour this fall with pinback.
speaking of guided by voices, uncle bob has not one but two records coming out on 10.9. coast to coast carpet of love will find bobby exploring the beatles side of his musical personality and standard gargoyle decisions will explore his stones side. i have yet to hear either, but these should be very, very cool. we already know what his beatles side can produce. i hope his stones influenced stuff is full of anthematic rockers.
rud fins from coast to coast..
