Horn (the Band)

Lou Barlow and Dinosaur Jr. Tour Diary

Check this and further installments for a glimpse into why, in addition to being a crazily inventive bass player, Barlow is the guy in Dinosaur you’d prolly most wanna split a soda or an afternoon with.

Superchunk/Bob Mould Drummer Jon Wurster Celebrates the Very Alive Chuck Biscuits…

Weird little media hoax, this bit about Chuck Biscuits being “dead.”

Interview: Jay Farrar on Finding Inspiration in Jack Kerouac’s Big Sur and Working With Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard Sound of the City

I still cannot bring myself to listen to this record, even though everybody everywhere says it’s the best Farrar thing in forever. In short, hearing about Farrar’s process of grafting Kerouac’s prose onto songs makes it seem like this record is even more “prosaic” than the last Son Volt alb.

By the way, is Death Cab for Cutie any good?

Week 22: Lee Hazlewood, space cowboy/peculiar guy

Great intro to a songwriter and a character everybody should know about.

Paul F. Tompkins Preps New Album, Freak Wharf, for December

Most anticipated album of 2009, for me.

Lost in Space: The story of Big Dipper ]

Read this story of a truly great, lost rock band, and get a taste of the 80s indie milieu that hasn’t made it into the revisionist canon fueled by the festival circuit/reunion circuit.

Pitchfork: R.I.P. Jerry Fuchs, Drummer for !!!, Juan Maclean, Maserati, Turing Machine

Unlike Chuck Biscuits, Fuchs’ death is no joke. So sad.

Cannot stay away from the Bill Corgan material. Shame on me.

    I don’t know if Death Cab for Cutie is any good or not. I cannot bring myself to listen to a band with such an egregiously bad name…

    You should know that you are pretty much single-handedly responsible for bringing on my Lou Barlow relapse after years in recovery from obsession/slavish devotion to his music and performing persona. Not good. Okay, maybe a little bit good. No, probably not a good thing at all. Must. Look. Away from Lou’s tour diary.

    the elevator shaft…

    Death Cab for Cutie are as bad as their name. Terrible.

  5. Brushback Says:

    “Death Cab for Cutie” was the title of a Bonzo Dog Band song, in case anyone missed the reference.
