I know I don't poke my head in here much, but I just saw this and know that many of you will appreciate it...

28. Bass player (who also looks scarily like my dad) is clearly tripping balls. 29. Mic stands bent by Bob himself from rods of cold-forged steel with rock and brawn. 30. Clearly they're in a room smaller and more cottage-like than Harvey's, but they're rocking the shit out of it like it's motherfuc...

Well, hot damn. Got my new old turntable hooked up last night and spent the evening enjoying it tremendously. First up was the album that inspired the whole thing (and, a long time ago in a galazy far, far away, this thread), Wilco (The Album) - I have to listen to it more, but already it's easily m...

Stone Roses Home Video

I don't know if you cats have already seen this - it may be old as the hills, I don't know... But yesterday the Guardian posted this cool bit of home video recorded when the Stone Roses were recording Fools Gold...
