“This is the indie establishment”: Red Hot’s Day of the Dead

“This is the indie establishment”: Red Hot’s Day of the Dead

Disclaimer: I’ve probably never heard a Grateful Dead song in my life. At least not knowingly. This is an unfortunate position for me to be in, considering I am reviewing an album containing 59 covers of songs by the Grateful Dead. Just so you know. In 2009, the Red Hot Organization, fighting AIDS through pop […]

Lee Adcock’s Response to Everett True’s Response To The Flaming Lips – Why Can’t We Be Fwends?

I had a good intro here. A fucking good one, too. But then it vanished. So fuck it. The title says it all, anyway. ET asked, and so I answered: 1.

This passes the Kid Koala test. So laidback it’s beyond horizontal. Chilled. Woozy. Wonderful.

20 Most Read Entries on Collapse Board | April 2013

Another slow month, enlivened somewhat by the top two entries. At this rate, Collapse Board’s going to be less popular than The Legend!’s music – something I always figured was impossible. 1.

How to write a press release

How to write a press release

Why would we make this music that is The Terror – this bleak, disturbing, hopeless record…?? I don’t really want to know the answer that I think is coming: that WE were hopeless WE were disturbed (but we didn’t have a longing to NOT be disturbed) and, I think, accepting that some things are hopeless…or letting hope in one area die so that hope can start to live in another?? Maybe this is the beginning of the answer.
