Just saw Dinosaur Jr in a pub that was way too small for J's three huge stacks. Was the best thing ever

"Guilty pleasure" would definitely apply to most Interpol, since they have been embarrassingly bad since 2003. But Turn on the Bright Lights speficially is more of a nostalgic pleasure. That was a genuinely good album. Not the best album of 2002 for fuck's sake, but good nonetheless.

I listened to it a lot in 2002 also. I remember thinking the climax of "PDA" was, like, everything I loved about music at the time. I was more taken by Trail of Dead that year — before THEY turned into an embarrassing shit-show — because Source Tags & Codes sounded almost like Daydream Nation-era Sonic Youth at times. Not so much that it felt like an overt ripoff (Interpol kinda did sound like an overt ripoff of Joy Division and several other bands), but enough that it psyched me up.

Too bad both bands turned out to be ... awful... after hype and fame hit. Like, really bad. Worse than Modest Mouse version 2.0.

How about "How Near, How Far?" That was my jam. I think that was my favorite song of that year actually. God they had the fire ... and they were great live too. Then they turned into some wussy ripoff of SDRE and, somehow, Smashing Pumpkins ... only with more pomp. Yuck.

That album was good though. So neither Turn on the Bright Lights not Source Tags and Codes counts as a guilty pleasure. If you enjoy anything else by those bands, then that probably counts. ;)

Swans. The last time, or so they say.

Both Bettie Serveert and Magnapop are touring the Netherlands next month (not together though). So I will go see them most probably. Haven't decided when or where yet.
Will be a nice flashback to the early nineties especially the terrific Magnapop that I saw like four times in one week many many years ago in 1991 or 1992.

Blood_Promise 03.13.2017 12:50 PM

moving to London next month, planning to see Marc Ribot, Those Poor Bastards, and perhaps, if I can find someone selling their tickets - Bill Callahan. well and Nick Cave on September. hope all the music will somehow soothe my negative attitude towards London.

negaitive attitude towards London. i have it same with London. do not know why. cool place for a happenings tho.

ilduclo 03.13.2017 05:40 PM

Ribot solo? Should be good. He's going to do some duets w/David Hidalgo (from Los Lobos) in Japan, those should be fantastic. Ribot loves Hispanic music!

I lived in Berlin for a while and well... London pales in comparison. It is so tense. Perhaps I need to spend more then a few weeks to get used to it, but now this Brexit thing is really worrisome.

I almost forgot: seeing Swans this Friday, Little Annie is opening!
