Ole Anton just keeps firin' 'em off. I can't believe some of the things that fall out of his mouth. He allegedly talked trash about the Black Angels during last week's Austin Psych Fest, and here, amoungst hundreds of quotable quotes in an interview with Trent Moorman, he has this to say about ATL garage rockers the Black Lips:

I'm deceptively successful. I'm more successful than almost all my peers. I brought the Black Lips to Bomp Records. I'm a co-owner of Bomp. We put out the Black Lips. People like what they do, but they're juvenile. They were hanging out with Jay Reatard, who killed himself, and everybody loved him. Seeing Black Lips piss and shit on a handicapped seat and make a video of it is not cool. I'll kick their ass for that. We're only as strong as the weak among us.

What'll he say next?!?

On a related note, interested parties should check out this set of excellent photos from the 2012 Psych Fest, by Seattle photog and Stranger contributor Jake Clifford. Many say APF rivals SXSW in best Texas music festivals. It does seem grow bigger every year.

Brian Jonestown Massacre play the Neptune Theatre, tomorrow, Sat May 5 at 8 pm.
