“Like almost all of Beefheart’s recorded work, it was not even “ahead” of its time in 1969. Then and now, it stands outside time, trends, fads, hypes, the rise and fall of whole genres eclectic as walking Christmas trees, constituting a genre unto itself: truly, a musical Monolith if ever there was one.” 
Lester Bangs

You guys have no idea how obsessed with Radiohead I was in high school. This is such a big exciting day for me, I almost starting crying when I started listening to this album. Only 2 tracks are small enough to post on tumblr but I’ll post them.

The best karaoke song is no scrubs there is no better song sing no scrubs at next karaoke night realise how better you feel.

I came in 3rd place in new wave trivia but a girl brought me a drink her friend was too drunk to have so I guess I’m the real winner.

The only time I got my heart “broken” I suppose (it was a lot of misguided emotions and after knowing real love it’s kinda silly to look back on) I listened to nothing but Lloyd Cole and the Commotions and that Camera Obscura song “Lloyd I’m ready to be heartbroken” (and my now boyfriend’s band in an odd twist of fate) and while playing those Lloyd Cole and Camera Obscura songs today I felt really emotional in a very weird way.

It’s weird to find old emotions wrapped up in songs you haven’t heard in awhile, it’s like finding an old note or picture or something.

I’m playing scottish music right now let’s have fun: http://wuog.org/live/

you missed me play lloyd cole’s “Are You Ready to Be Heartbroken” and Camera Obscura’s “Lloyd I’m Ready to Be Heartbroken” back2back but there’s gonna be more cool stuff I promise!
