Torn Curtain already posted this on the St. Vincent thread, but I imagined it deserved exposure on this part of the board. From Pitchfork:

Quote:
 


Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground 1981-1991, the 2001 book by music writer Michael Azerrad, chronicled the birth of the U.S. indie rock movement by telling the stories of 13 of the scene's biggest bands. That book turns 10 this year, which makes a few of us feel very, very old. To celebrate the anniversary, Azerrad is putting on a big tribute show called Our Band Could Be Your Concert at New York's Bowery Ballroom on May 22. Artists from today's indie scene will cover songs by bands from the book. The lineup for this thing is already nuts, and it's not even done yet.

The Dirty Projectors' David Longstreth, Nat Baldwin, and Brian McOmber will cover Black Flag (fittingly), St. Vincent will play Big Black, Titus Andronicus will play the Replacements, Ted Leo will play Minor Threat, tUnE-yArDs will play Sonic Youth, Dan Deacon will play the Butthole Surfers, Wye Oak will play Dinosaur Jr., Buke & Gass will play Fugazi, and Delicate Steve will play the Minutemen. More bands will also be announced later.

This book was on my must-read list for a long time, and you have just made me aware that i forgot to read it. Ten years is really a long time. I've been really damn lazy. That must change (or not?)

Ye shall read it indeed! Now, if you haven't read From the Velvets to the Voidoids, Our Band Could Be Your Life may have to wait a bit. Just sayin' . Anyway, after I started this thread I got a motherfuckin' AVALANCHE of spam e-mails - can't be a coincidence, can it?

Thanks for the recommendation, The Soup Nazi. That book is certainly in my to-do list, i already have it and look forward to reading it. I'm currently reading "John Lennon: The Life", by Philip Norman and it will take me a while to finish it. It's pretty long and interesting. When i'm done i'll dive in "From The Velvets To The Voidoids" with high expectations, i read somewhere that it's at least as good as "Please Kill Me: The Oral History Of Punk Rock", by Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain. I might order "Our Band Could Be Your Life" pretty soon after all, i just read my e-mail and unfortunately i've been informed that amazon won't be able to fulfill my order of the book "Raymond Pettibon: Front Row Center", by Raymond Pettibon and Thurston Moore, which i had pre-ordered since last year; so it seems i'll have some spare money. I'm really pissed off, first i lost the chance of buying one of those Kim Gordon & Bill Nace cassettes and now this. It's been a shitty day. At least i haven't been flooded with spam (yet).

Lately I've been into Bill Janovitz's Exile On Main Street (an excellent mix of personal experience, contextual description and general exegesis - Bill and I LOVE that fuckin' album!) and Richie Unterberger's truly phenomenal White Light/White Heat: The Velvet Underground Day By Day.

Whoever wrote that comment you read is WRONG: From the Velvets to the Voidoids is most certainly BETTER than Please Kill Me, which by now has been elevated to goddamnn Punk Bible status. As Clinton Heylin himself says, quoting from Television, FTVTTV is a "Prove it - just the FACTS!" book; not at all a mere list of cold hard data, mind you, but a perfect blend of oral history AND factual contrast plus of course Mr. Heylin's own appraisal of the musicians' artistic values (an appraisal with which you'll both agree to the point of shouting AMEN and disagree to the point of shouting THIS GUY IS NUTS, and if that isn't an endorsement... ).[/quote]

Well that's some shit right there. I plan on getting T & Byron Coley's No Wave soonisherly... Personally, I gotta say I've had a "balanced" week of sorts: first I scored a mint copy of The Soft Boys' Side Three for 18 bucks (check out how much they currently ask for it) and then I shelled out a small fortune for Phil Spector's Back To Mono. Yes, it woulda been better to have had an imbalanced week packed with bargains only and not having to worry about how in the FUCK I'm gonna pay for all of this, but what was I supposed to do? Just sit here like a mook? Aw HELLS NO y'alls!

Yeah, I don't know what is up with this shit; maybe it IS a coincidence. Everywhere they ask you to log in for this and that and
 
 
 
and so I guess spammers have a lot of places to get your address from. Degenerates...

OK, so anyway, back to this thread's subject, St. Vincent doing Big Black sounds WILD!

Only just saw on Lee's Twitter that he sung two Minutemen songs - "History Lesson PT I" and "Jesus and Tequila" - at this.
