Ooh, yeah, I did like that one. Good call.


Crap, yeah, I forgot that one. And Utopia Parkway might even have it beat, pound-for-pound.

Re: Best album in the last 15 years?

I hate to be unoriginal, but: NMH, In the Aeroplane over the Sea . Not just one of the best albums of the last 15 years, but one of the best albums of all time. Pure songwriting that is harrowingly emotional, poetic yet DIRECT, crazy, unique sounds that never seem gimmicky or trendy, not drowned in ...

By the way "Magic Man," by Heart? That is one fucking amazing song.

There is only one-way to settle this: Indie rock cage-fight! Now, Moore is clearly rangier with a greater reach, but I get the feeling Albini would fight with the ferocity of a rabid badger. I smell Pay-Per-View millions here, people. Who's on board? I'm might have to go with Moore/reach, even thou...

Scharpling & Wurster

I mentioned these guys in my "getting old" thread below; they introduced acts at the Matador bash's final night. Tom Scharpling, a DJ for WFMU in NJ/NY is the straight man; Jon Wurster, drummer for Superchunk and others, generally plays some hubristic, delusional tool. Here's them introduc...

Thanks everyone. I considered asking the GloNo honchos to make it an article, but I worried it was too much a personal impression as opposed to "journalistic review." Plus, I just wanted to get it out there at some point. Ticket-wise it was like any concert, except for the destination--tic...

Aye, Murph, she did! That was the one I wanted, too! My pictures all came out crappy...tried all kinds of settings but just had a point-and-shoot. 21 years with pretty damn good ears in their leaders and I have to say, a good sense of humor about stuff that didn't work so well for them (forays into ...

I Am Getting Old--A report on a highlight of my year.

Just for the record, I am definitely getting old. Apologies for a long belated post--thanks for the venue. One of the highlights of my year was getting the freak chance to go to Las Vegas in October for Matador Records' 21st birthday party. The bands and guests all stayed in the same hotel, so it wa...
