dude makes a living recording, so he can record all the stuff he likes for peanuts; get off his case. it's his dayjob, not his craft; playing aluminium guitars while screaming about squirrels and shitty people is his craft.

plus razorblade suitcase owns!!!! can't say the same about the new stooges album.

anywhoo, aren't the klaxons like this week's panic at the disco? perhaps this week's razorlight? if one of the members starts dating a model they might do a second album or perhaps a first solo album.

Looks like we have the same opinion on this matter, and I'm kinda happy for that.

yeah, seems so; it's still some crap from the 60's/70's of the celebrity producer, where the engineers turned from the ones doing the records to rockstars themselves and that's so prevalent still and mostly wrong, it should have gone away a long time ago.

and yes, i did open for the youth, not bad, eh?

I heard that Albini described them as the 'truest' band he'd worked with for years.

the klaxons are a shoreditchy type of band. i don't understand what it is about the british people that makes them so prone to forming/supporting this near constant stream of effete pop-rock bands. if i had a time machine i'd go back and push david bowie under a bus before he made any records.

Klaxons... good singles but they dont work in album form. Theyre designed to be experienced in short 3-4 minute bursts, though they do this very well.
Sonic Youth influence i can see in terms of their aesthetic, the music to a certain extent.
I like their mixing of dance music and indie, usually when this is done its in a dreary "we dont have any other songs so lets tack on a remix as the b-side" style. They integrate rather than just tacking on.
