The way The Smiths once covered their sleeves in 60s references, the way Wu-Tang Clan embraced the language and iconography of Shaolin, the way Oasis loved The Beatles, that’s the relationship Iceage has with xenophobia and white supremacy — it may not be the window, but it’s damn sure the drapes.

Song of the day – 465: Cats On Fire (+ some words on Pulp)

In their own way, they’re Smiths good: a backhanded compliment if ever I wrote one.
