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.
Weird little media hoax, this bit about Chuck Biscuits being “dead.”
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?
Great intro to a songwriter and a character everybody should know about.
Most anticipated album of 2009, for me.
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.
Unlike Chuck Biscuits, Fuchs’ death is no joke. So sad.
Cannot stay away from the Bill Corgan material. Shame on me.
