An interview I did with musician R. Stevie Moore, as part of the 2011 POP Montreal Symposium, is up on the internet now! Above is just a short clip, but you can watch the entire hour-long adventure here. Man, in the last week I have increased my YouTube presence by about 200%.
Remember Q and Not U, that band you loved in high school?? This morning I was listening to Chrome and like WHAT how come no one told me in 2002 that Q and Not U is such a rip-off of this band??? And then I was listening to ‘Different Damage’ and there is this song ‘Black Plastic Bag’ which is amazing, but what is even more amazing, is that there is a Chrome song of the same name.
Essential listening. The permanence of history, the recollection of memory, the borrowed nostalgia, the afterschool video specials, the wonderment for nature, the transience of identity and yearning for self, through a kaleidoscope of flattened color, field recordings, traditional folk, loop dioramas and prismatic joy.
