I thought, "there's something very Mark Eitzel about this". And lo!I've got no one to blame but myself. I should have never played dark music. I used to really love Jonathan Richman. He changed after doing two of the most perfect albums ever — The Modern Lovers and The Original Modern Lovers — and then he said, "Those were too dark. I'm going to write about snowmen." He's a fucking genius for that. I didn't like those songs, though.Mark Eitzel interviewIt's always interesting to find out where your heroes got their schtick from...
This is so weird:a. I was just wondering how Carl would square that "living salad" post with his love of later-period J-Rich. Surely Jo-Jo has a song called "Hey There Little Salad"!b. I recently, inexplicably, started listening to American Music Club again, after 15 years of neglect.
I love richman and have resolved to write a long post on him soon! though strangely neither AMC nor RHP grab me.. yet i like Sun Kill Moon's versions of Modest Mouse (wuzzit?) a lot..I'm suffering f rom a long-running and largely inexplicable obsession with the Constantines myself...
so when are you going to conquer Constantinople then?
week next tuesday.
i was trying to be metaphorical actually but good to know anyway..serap
