Destroy The Heart
Holy shit. From the semi-official The House Of Love website :
“Terry Bickers has confirmed that he is working together with both Guy Chadwick and Pete Evans under the name House of Love. Chris Grouthuizen has chosen not to join them and the band are currently looking at finding a new bass player. They have yet to record anything but have been writing together and have an album and some live dates in the pipeline.”
Chadwick and Bickers working together again? Damnation. If a House of Love reunion is half as fruitful as the recent Chameleons reunion, this would be cause for celebration for sure. This bears watching…
Found the new Mountain Goats album today – Five Seventeen has been on me for a while to get this record. It’s mostly acoustic indie-rockin’ folk along the lines of Neutral Milk Hotel but less lo-fi and demented (though earlier Goats stuff was apparently resolutely lo-fi, recorded on department store boomboxes and whatnot). One listen in and it’s not made too much of an impression – it’s pleasant and quirky, but we’ll see. It took Aeroplane Over The Sea a while to gobsmack me, not that I expect that degree of revelation from this disc.
Stopped in at the movie poster shop on Yonge hoping to find a poster for I Am Trying To Break Your Heart, to no avail. I want one but am not going to pay the $50 or so that one from the website would run me.
Blasted weekend is already over.
