The return of Everett True | 68. Das Band

The return of Everett True | 68. Das Band

I don’t know much about music but I know what I like. I rarely think about associations. Either it connects or it doesn’t. It’s entirely variable on mood. My preference is for messy, unless it isn’t. Some form of elastic, loose beat that always comes back together. Unless it doesn’t. And unless it isn’t. I […]

Everett True’s Favourite Bands (and Venues) of 1980

Everett True’s Favourite Bands (and Venues) of 1980

I started, so I may as well see this mini-series through to its conclusion. This is probably the most dubious ‘top’ chart of all from my teenage self in 1980. It’s not based on ‘likes’ or ‘ratings’ (as you might have expected), but on simple numbers, calculated via a point system – two for a […]

The return of Everett True | 67. Kim Deal

The return of Everett True | 67. Kim Deal

I haven’t posted one of these for 23 days. It feels longer. There’s no reason, just inertia. Depression. I saw this video posted on a friend’s Facebook feed. It’s Kim Deal. Of course I’m going to listen. It’s so good. Transparent. You can hear all the workings, the fluidity, the spontaneity, the beautiful melody at […]

Everett True’s Favourite Gigs of 1980

And so… to the third part of the series. (You can find part one here, and part two here.) Once again, taken from my diary of the time with all the star ratings attached. The first for how ‘good’ the band was; the second for my enjoyment of them. Pluses and minuses are related to […]

Everett True’s Favourite Singles of 1980

Everett True’s Favourite Singles of 1980

It seems the obvious follow-up to yesterday’s post, Everett True’s Favourite Albums of 1980. I have all the information contained within this slim blue hardback diary in front of me. I’d imagine these charts are based on actual plays of my Dansette. Much more variable, this chart – and showing a heavy Factory Records bias, […]

Everett True’s Favourite Albums of 1980

Back then, I couldn’t write. So I kept lists all the time. And I graded all the shows I went to (shudder). Here. Let’s have a peek. I seem to recall the first column is for how well I felt the band performed (out of six) (plus or minus fractions or variables, depending on outside […]

So you think most music critics are failed musicians? Go fuck yourself

So you think most music critics are failed musicians? Go fuck yourself

There was a comment on one of my Facebook threads the other day that angered me immensely. (It led to an immediate de-Friending…uh, like that’s going to hurt.) You are a critic and not a musician. Now, I ain’t denying that perhaps I could have misinterpreted the fellow’s intentions, typing such a sentence. He was […]

The return of Everett True | 66. Technicolor Hearts

Hello, I’m writing because Everette True did a feature on my old band Agent Ribbons a few years back. I’m not sure how to get in touch with him but I wanted to see if he or anyone there would be interested in premiering or featuring a music video/diy video art piece for my new […]
