"I am the pawn, I am the King." - J Church.
NYT has a nice happy profile of a Philadelphia band I knew nothing about until now. I just like the optimistic smily-ness of the profile.
Scenestars does a fair enough job summing up The Stones Roses, or at least where things went wrong for them. I've been thinking about re-assessing "Second Coming," and the two tracks posted here will give me the chance.
The coolest thing I've heard all week is Brendan Canty of Fugazi fame is doing a DVD series where he goes to a city and films the bands touring through the city or residing in that city playing music in front of a structure that is about to be destroyed. Crazy, but true. Billboard has the skinny.
Okay, here is the playlist from last night's webcast. A hot show in my opinion. At least, I enjoyed listening to it. There will be one more show this year, 12/21 at 9PM. Then I'll be back on the InterWeb the first Tuesday after New Year's, which I beleive is the 4th.
