Woe Is Me

Ummm....the best lyricist in rock? I'm sorry but that cabbie/victorian sky line strikes me as a little overly dramatic and adolescent, the reason teenagers are always so hung up on the smiths in the first place. His lyrics are a bit too much for me. I'll take the best lyrics by bruce springsteen and...

The Wrens is a tricky situation. I think "This Boy is Exhausted" is one of the weakest Wren tracks, plus it has my other pet peeve--a 35 year-old man calling himself a "boy." I always skip that one. Luckily for the Wrens you have to read the liner notes to understand the lyrics. But most of their l...

Yeah, they're pretty good, though I prefer the original stuff it was based on (Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers, the Damned, etc). However, I think 'Empty Bottles and Broken Hearts' is a great album by them. I bet you can find it used on half.com. I see a lot of their albums used at independent...

'You say I ain't worth a dollar but I feel like a millionaire' by QOTSA has a hilarious pause at the end. There's a few songs on that album that do that, actually.

Math rock is all about the pauses. Any Don Cab, Shiner, Rodan, or US Maple song is going to have about 20 pauses in them each.

Cure Fans

I'm revisiting the Cure as of late. Any die hard Cure fans get the new b-sides box set? I'm probably going to buy it anyway, but what are the opinions. Hey, if it has just a few decent Disintegration era songs I'm all over it... Looove that album...

I wasn't making the argument that 90's indie rock was the apex of rock n roll, simply that *I* prefer some of those bands to a lot of newer, really hyped ones. Most of my favorite music is from a time when I either wasn't born yet or hadn't learned to walk yet: Bo Diddley, The Stooges, and The Velve...
