So NME (New Music Express) just turned 60 & posted up the top 100 songs since they’ve been around. Joy Division (who oddly I had a dream about last night, see below) has the top slot, which is awesome, but they picked “Love Will Tear Us Apart” which I have always thought of as one of their weakest songs & maybe the least indicative of the band. So I’m torn about that. The number two song is Pulp’s “Common People” which is a good, but I think thew William Shatner version blows it away. Here’s the video from the same guy who did the Vlor “Watch Me Bleed” video.
The Sequential Underground podcast I’m on about Kickstarter is up now. You can listen to it here. Super in depth & about an hour long, so probably you should be doing something else while listening to it.
I’m having to kick back the new guitarist issue of QRD a little bit. A bunch of other work I need to get done that is more time sensitive.
I got asked today about doing a comic convention in Malta. I’m kind of thinking about doing a Kickstarter campaign to finance it happening….
Last Night’s Dream:
I am listening to a Joy Division bootleg that isn’t a collection of demos so much as really rough song ideas recorded at the practice space instead of in the studio. There’s one called “sound sound sound sound” that is 30 seconds & just guitar & bass that I want to work up into a full song.
