Where do you get all this Bill Orcutt info?
Pouncey, never really liked his writing found it to be kind of someone writing without really having the extensive frame of reference that his subject matter needs, cf that piece in the Wire a few years ago about "Subterranean Metal", plus lacking in any kind of charisma, which ties in with what glice says.
Pretty much I think that if you can't write as well as and don't have the encyclopaedic knowledge of Byron Coley, Joe Carducci, or Tom Lax then you shouldn't bother writing about rock music.
