Line Out: Music & Nightlife

RSS icon Comments on Decibel Festival v.05, Night 2


I found myself bringing up Bangs a few years back at an EMP Pop Con during a Q&A and sincerely wished someone would have killed me right there. Just stomped the living shit out of me.

Still wish I'd been there Friday -- especially regarding critics shilling for record companies. "Paul Nelson" is an interesting name to argue for such a thing (otherwise, no incredible fucking writing from the guy who oversaw the New York Dolls being signed to Mercury and a half dozen other really good critics being encouraged and fed by the sale of lame swag out of the closet of his office); and about a thousand A&R hacks in the fabled "post-grunge" years whose fetal fanzines are filling various storage lockers of mine.
