What was the last bargain bin CD you've
guys have purchased?
Keith: Jonathan Fire Eater - Wolf Songs
For Lambs. I had this cd stolen out of my car 2 years ago
and couldn't find it anywhere after that. Recently the guy at Kim's Underground
stuck his nose up at me and told me it was a "cold release"
and they didn't have it. I ended up finding it at a local record shop
on Long Island.
Yuki: The Church- Best of The Church
-So what, guilty pleasure.
James: Mono-Take One More Step and You
If you had to write a theme song for an visual artist alive
or dead who would you choose, & why?
Keith: I’ll get back to you on that one.
James: Scoring a Jim Jarmusch movie… He is
my favorite filmmaker and he always works with the best people from actors
to musicians i.e. Roberto Benigni (pre “Life is Beautiful"),
Tom Waits, the RZA, and Jon Lurie. He epitomizes this mid 80's uber New
Yorkness (think Sonic Youth "Evol" meets tom waits "Rain
Dogs") that I found intimidating and totally magnetic as a kid. But
where Jim Jarmusch sets himself apart from any other "New York"
film maker is that he is ultimately highly humanistic, down to earth and
most importantly funny as hell!
Yuki: Robert Wilson because he always manages to
create art layered with so much longing, pain, tension, beauty, etc. and
present it in a visually simple and clean way. Plus, he’s anal.
His attention to every detail is insane. I admire that in artists
Name 5 unique items you would find in your tour station wagon?
Keith: Golf balls, matches that haven't been used
since I quit smoking 2 years ago, paid and unpaid parking tickets, amp
knobs that somehow don't belong to any of us, extra anti-freeze, and motor
James: Copies of Teen Vogue, Glamour, Us, Cosmo
and Elle for Yuki.
Yuki: A light fixture filled with change, plenty
of “tunes”, Keith’s candy bar wrappers, fuck you James
-so what if I buy trashy magazines to pass the time?!, and a picture of
my cat, Anthony.

1. Mogwai "Rats of the Capitol"
from HAPPY MUSIC FOR HAPPY PEOPLE.
The first time I saw Mogwai the bassist had an Entombed shirt on...when
they go all epic noise metal- woah.
2. Ruins "Issighirudoh" from TSHOMBORGA.
Picking this song is pretty much arbitrary as all ruins songs are absolutely
essential. Amazing amazing musicians! They never should be missed live.
They are smart as fuck but still maintain a sense of humor.
3. Lightning Bolt "Assassins" from WONDERFUL RAINBOW.
Bass and drums, bass and drums, bass and drums. Makes me want to snort
4. Cocteau Twins "Sugar Hiccup" from TREASURE.
Summer nighttime music... Everything’s gonna be ok.
5. Skywave "Here She Comes" from BLISSCENT 2 COPLILATION.
The best and most original of the supposed neo-shoegazing scene. So poppy
and noisy with a healthy JAMC jones they stand miles apart from the rest.
6. Acid Mothers Temple "Loved and Confused" from ELECTRIC
Crazy Japanese noise/psych, they are so serious about this shit it scares
me, truly bad vibes dude. Great for driving around Martha’s vineyard.
7. Slowdive "Allison" from SOUVLAKI.
8. Leonard Cohen "Suzanne" SONGS OF LEANORD COHEN.
A re-rediscovery. Songs with girls names in the title are good.
9. Deerhoof anything off APPLE O’.
Everyone’s new favorite "noise" band, but definitely worthy
of all the attention. Cutesy and noisy with a definite Japanese sensibility.
10. Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions "On the Low"
from BAVARIAN FRUIT BREAD.
Best album I’ve heard in a long time. Colm Occoisog and Hope Sandoval
as perfect as it sounds on paper, now lets see about this MBV box set…X
