    get ready for another decade of it, no matter what happens next. even if they manage to get a deal done, that’s only the beginning of the process. they haven’t actually negotiated the detail of their future relationship yet. we may as well just add a new section to the nightly news. local news...

    American equivalent to Thomann

    Hi peeps Is there an American — or, more specifically, Californian — equivalent to Thomann? i.e. a website for ordering music gear specifically for yanks? Apart from just going with something like Amazon, I was wondering if there might be any sort of more-direct equivalent. Let me know! :)

    The Redneck Manifesto - Thirtysixstrings (2001)

    jesus i love this album this and the first jimmy cake album gave me such a strange kind of faith that people were interested in music that was not just leather-jacket shape-throwing or oasis-retread-crap or whatever it was that people were doing back then. i’d always been into plenty of weird...

    Metallica - Master of Puppets (1986)

    Metallica - Master of Puppets (1986)

    Metallica never had a plan for what would happen after they became huge (which is why they’ve been so buffoonish for the last couple of decades). There are two kinds of motivation for seeking fame/glory/renown/whatever: to be rewarded, or to be vindicated. They were the ultimate band of scummy...

    Fugazi - In on the Kill Taker (1993)

    actually i can’t stop I wonder what it’s like to listen to this now as a sort of historical document. Because when I was first getting my head around it, it was the outcome of a whole system, and a present, existing reality. You could listen to it and say, hey, this is great. And these guys...

    Fugazi - In on the Kill Taker (1993)

    it was like learning a whole new beautiful amazing way to tell the world to fuck off and it goes straight from that into the bouncy instrumental track from there! and i realised this morning that i still know almost all the album lyrics by heart ok i’ll stop now

    Fugazi - In on the Kill Taker (1993)

    i love that bit it totally reordered my musical brain back in the day. i’m more or less still dealing with the aftermath of it, i suppose.

    Fugazi - In on the Kill Taker (1993)

    I reckon I’d still think that The Argument is actually a better album. but this was the one that mattered more to me

    Fugazi - In on the Kill Taker (1993)

    i think it’s only looking back at it now that i can realise just what an effect it had.
