oh roe, incase you didnt know, FUCK THE WHITE STRIPES. im not nearly as anti-WS, as i am anti-strokes, but still, i cant deal with bands that do nothing but bite their whole style, getting deemed as 'genius.' plus, they're from detroit and supposed to be some underground phenomenon, yet i had never once heard of them or seen there name, till they were on Mtv. and detroit isnt like NY, theres a very small scene and if something is going on, you know about it. i also cant deal with americans who want to act all odd and uncomfortable like they were british. fuck you.

hahaha fucking seeking....man it was only a matter of time until the good doctor chimed in with his blasting diagnosis...actually i was suprised it took this long...man its good thing we had chance to hang for a bit or else i would think your the biggest bastard....hahaha thats all love ofcourse....

 

but i thought you kinda liked em? didnt you compare em to the beatles at first....in the first stroke thread?

 

seriously though, i mean come on, a duo of guitar and drums? their a minimalistic sound that rocks....and i dont watch fucking mtv...

 

so whose style are they chomping?

 

two more questions for you seeks...one:when are you coming over this way again and two, where is my fucking package!!;)

 

lets put it likes this beardo, i would only go and see em one night....but i dig their sound alot....

 

yes, mr abc, that is them......

 

 

CASH FOR YOUR EXTRA!!!!

i said that they sounded like a low fi beatles, or led zepplin. which they do. which isnt as annoying as the strokes, but still. my whole thing against them isn't against them as much as it against the critics that wanna act like what they're doing is so 'new' or 'cool'... i mean, maybe im just being a hater, but acting like your british, running with a gimick, and being ugly all get the dilsnick from this brotha right here.

 

basically i guess my problem is with the elitest NY and LA jackasses, that try and act like these bands are so 'cool' and 'hip' when you know damn well they'll just abandon them as soon as the next thing comes along. people like that just get on my nerves. theres no reason a ticket to the 'white stripes' should be costing 300 dollars. thats like when tickle me elmo was so hot a few years ago, and so all the rich white people drove the price up to like 500 bucks, making sure a working black man couldnt get one for his kids. fuck that shit. its musical gentrification and i wont have any part of it. im gonna go listen to 'goatsnake' who im certain no one in NY will give a shit about.

meldhau is cool and all but....

 

me personnally, i prefer traditional jazz piano...a la monk, bud powell, lenny tristano, red garland, herbie nichols, errol garner, hampton hawes, etc etc etc, list goes on forvever...

 

and if you like meldhau so much, do yourself a favor and pick up an art tatum cd, one in particular is a double cd: "the complete capitol recordings", just to compare the two styles and see how different shit was back then...meldhau aint got shit on tatum..actually, i dont think anyone does...

so i just check my fucking email and in the subject line is "white stripes", im all fucking amped thinking one of my hooks found a fish...ah but i click on the fucking thing, and the kid is asking me about where in NYC are they playing....i was ready to give him a good taste of 12oz lecturing:

 

"your on the fucking white stripes site, and your asking me? why dont you do your own fucking research...geesh ever heard of a search engine toy!...fucking kids:rolleyes: "

 

but instead i just said bowery balllroom....

 

 

"wait im confused..are we all getting drunk?"-hesh

 

mind erasers mangs? name the time and the place.....

 

im all about going to see modest mouse dood...lemme know if you find ANYTHING...ill drive...how were the slopes?

 

 

whether your right or wrong seeks, i love reading your philosphical tirades....there needs to be more people in the world like that....only seeks brings in current socio-economic theory using tickle me elmo....in all fairness dood, the people did bid up to 300...i mean i guess thats free market at its best, a sucker every minute...fuck that shit though, ill find a head at the show and grab one for face..."please believe"....and yes im harrasing you, wheres my package?

 

kaes dropping serious jazz names....i gotta admit i only know monk...i heard that meldhau was alot more "untraditional" then his vanguard shows...my boy who saw him before says he was real chill compared to the last time he saw him....one of the things i loved about him, was how he played the piano....its mindblowing.....hes really quite fucking amazing for like what 26 years old?...but i dont really know him in the grand scheme of jazz, but im gonna check him out again...id like to see him solo...

 

about that taping im all over it...ill email you...by the way i know some guy who taped it too....he plays bass, no chance of a small world connection is there?

 

rage the only kottonmouth i know id the one i currently have.....

if he goes to school in nyc then probly not, as im not too familiar with too many heads down there. but who knows, maybe there is. drop a name in the email...

theres a wide spectrum in jazz, like the light spectrum...so many different styles but its all somehow rooted in the same place. meldhau is killin though, just in his own personal unique way, which is what makes anyone worth listening to and checking out.

and check out bill evans at all? look for "bill evans trio- sunday at the village vanguard" or "waltz for debby"... both are milestones in the history of the music and have influenced many many people, including meldhau...

oh and both were recorded in 1961 at the village vanguard...tons of history made at that joint

hey, if the industry loves them, we all must want to love them too?

 

straight up, FUCK the white stripes. screw every corporate sponsored, "underground" band on a major label (phantom planet is the next one, watch out. jason schwartzman is in the band = stardom pass). these bands devalue any other hardworking group who not only play better music, but are at least creative! for gods sake, people are doing the same thing over and over and GETTING AWAY WITH IT. at the nye show, the strokes played with gbv which alone pisses me off. the lead singer was inebriated and could barely finish a song...meanwhile, robert from gbv was cool calm and drunk as shit but still put out a cracking show...just goes to show, dudes from the strokes cant even drink at a professional level let alone play.

 

spin magazine said that their "haunts" were the lower east side dive bars and streets, but in reality im sure it was big apartments and nyu dorms. these guys are FAKES!

 

people jump on these bands like wildfire, and whats funny is they dont even know why! "wow, urban outfitters sponsored their tour? well ive got a fresh pair of steve madden sneakers and some diesel jeans...i guess i can buy my "fan status" here too." fucking jerks.

 

when you get into a band WITHOUT the help of a "buzz," its real...otherwise its all bullshit, like leather wearing psuedo-hipsters calling themselves underground while their video gets major rotation on mtv.

 

rant of the day.

o..........................................k

 

 

anyways....

 

lemme be frank.....

 

 

 

i dont know the article, but i dont read spin....i dont know who sponsors them....but i dont shop at urban outfitters....i never heard them on the radio, but i dont listen to the radio....i never saw em on mtv, but i dont watch mtv...

 

ya see i listen to the white stripes because i like their sound...i realize ofcourse that this could be revolutionary concept to a few....but as you now see none of the shit you mentioned influenced my decision to buy their cd....

 

as far as your "rants" go, i really have nothing to say....yes your right....there will always be such a difference between bands that suck and bands that rock....

 

but thats about it....yeah yeah there are the buzz machines out there churing out a factory of the latest and greatest, and if you really want to hear good music then you need to step beyond virgin records on somedays....

 

but please people its not like its milli vanilli here, this a group of brotehr and sister, one playing drums and the other guitar.....im racking my brain early monday, but i cant think of another band set up like that....are they groundbreaking, in as far as they dont suck, yes...are the of the complexity of like, oh say brad meldhau?

 

oh wait, you ve never heard of him!!!

 

geesh what are you a spin reading, urban outfit wearing, radio suckling, mtv bastard child?

 

 

blar your own music.....

 

 

(ps...if you any of the bands you or anyone else listen to were to get the same opportunity to play their music, they would, and no im not saying selling out...im just saying enjoying the independence to do nothing but create and play music....enjoy their DL status...and be careful what you wish for)

 

 

NOW WHERE IS MY FUCKING EXTRA?!!!

that doesn't really make a whole lot of sense. i think you were trying to say that any other band would jump on and ride the talk all the way to the top like the white stripes or the strokes would? you think at that level they get the opportunity to enjoy "DL status?" hardly. if anything, in exchange for services, major labels take you from your dream world to "create and play music" and turn you into a money making machine, devoid of any creative process. they sold their soul for distribution and marketing, essentially losing cred and creative liscence in the process. they become the monkey, to the major labels organ grinder.

 

pretty funny how they traded sympathy for the record industry for v2, kind of ironic, huh?

 

and dont try and drop names to support how groundbreaking they are...they play stripped down blues and rock and roll. GROUNDBREAKING? dude, please. minimalist rock and roll (shellac, the delgados...anything on teen beat records) has been around for a long time (in the indie sense of the term), so dont tell ME whats groundbreaking or not. and if you try and drop names, ill drop 10 more.

 

"this a group of brotehr and sister, one playing drums and the other guitar.....im racking my brain early monday, but i cant think of another band set up like that...."

 

hmmm the carpenters, maybe? but that was groundbreaking in the 70s. wow, give it up for siblings playing music together...WHAT A STRETCH!
