And I alluded to Kurt Vile earlier. Seems like he's full of shit and douchy but his music is great.

I really enjoy a lot of black metal and neofolk music...there's loads of fascists, racists, misogynists, etc, spread out through both genres. Hate them as people but find their art appealing...take the bad with the good I guess.

Yeah, the whole Drunkdriver affair got me thinking about this separating the music from the musician thing. I absolutely have no idea what a musician really is like as a person when they go on about their daily lives, for the most part, and as far as I am concerned 90 per cent of the time it takes me long enough to trust humans in the flesh when I have to deal with them myself, so I just hope that I don't end up enjoying records made by despicable people. Of course I'd be deluded if I seriously thought that musicians were all angels, and for that reason I am fine if they get the treatment they deserve, even if I love their records.

Every noise dude I've met is pretty weird. And some have been the worst people ever.. usually the people who take it too seriously.
