The Seattle Times considers the deconstruction of Sleater-Kinney (Via Largehearted Boy) and The Houston Chronicle looks to the past for the band’s inspiration and the San Francisco Bay Guardian just has an old-fashioned interview with the band. SK are also gracing the cover of the new Exclaim! but they haven’t updated their website yet…
And more – Carrie Brownstein lists off ten songs to enjoy on a Sunday for Pitchfork, The Big Ticket dedicated much of yesterday’s post to Olympia, WA’s favourite daughters and links to a video for their current single, “Entertain” (Quicktime format, 20MB) and SubPop would like you to stream The Woods. Really, they do. And finally, the band are in Toronto at the Phoenix on June 18, but you probably already knew that.
Gleaned from a piece in the new Big Takeover – ex-Catherine Wheel frontman Rob Dickinson’s forthcoming solo album is called Fresh Wine For The Horses. Sanctuary Records briefly gave it a September 13 release date, but have since pulled that and it remains on the indeterminately forthcoming list. Update: A little googling reveals this podcast which has an interview with Rob Dickinson from this past March and has a few new songs scattered throughout. “Mutineer” (Warren Zevon song) is at 23m, “My Name Is Love” at 1h4m and “The Night” at 1h29m mark.
The Perry Bible Fellowship is an online comic that I think has been around for a while, but which I’ve only gotten around to reading recently. As in yesterday. The strips are completely random, just the right amount of deranged with a dash of outrageously offensive and goddamn funny. Highly recommended.
