    The cost of the telegram was $50. We also offered him a beer, which was declined.

    Titus Andronicus put on an absolute killer set tonight. I was somewhat worried after reading reviews of their most recent shows... but hot damn. The crowd wasn't big by any means, but for what it lacked in size was more than made up with craziness and enthusiasm. A lot of crowd surfing, stage diving, the crowd were singing along with almost ever song, etc. The new material sounded fantastic, too. Really fun night.

    Saw Titus this past Thursday with a crowd that could not have consisted of more than 50 people. They opened with 'Four Score and Seven' and went directly into 'A More Perfect Union'. Great way to start out the gig. Patrick constantly was complimenting the venue and seemed very happy with the show, which was surprising considering the weak turnout. Show was announced less than a week before and was poorly promoted even after it was announced, so I guess it was to be expected. They played a lot of the slower, lengthier songs and 4-5 new ones. The new songs seriously sounded fucking incredible and I can't wait to hear more.

    The Titus van pulled up late to the club, since the band has had to deal with a tour-life calamity that I never would’ve even considered. (He’s asked me not to report it, but rest assured that it’s fucking disgusting.)

    That article includes the best summation of TA's work to date I've yet to read:

    Titus Andronicus have released three albums. Two of them, 2008′s The Airing Of Grievances and 2012′s Local Business, are very good punk rock records. The other is arguably the best straight-up rock album that any band has released this decade. It’s a searching, scorching, swooping, diving, all-out motherfucker of a record. It’s a deeply ambitious piece of work that actually makes good on that ambition, and does it without trying its hand at a half-dozen different sounds. Its scope and approach are way different from what you’ll find on the two other Titus albums, and it really belongs in a category by itself. Stickles, I think, should be proud that he made it, proud of every last person he moved with that album.
    I've always had the sense -- from previous interviews, and this one also -- that Patrick's instinct is to distrust that sort of acclaim. Probably a combination of stuff he's seen lauded and deified in the past that either he thinks is shit, or that the adulation is so overbearing as to be insufferable and nauseating (he does come from Springsteenland). That plus his own neuroses/self-worth issues. I mean I'm just guessing here, I don't know the guy.

    Patrick was interviewed on Marc Maron's WTF podcast. Currently listening to it and it's great.

    I cracked open a beer and sat in my room for more than a hour straight just listening to that. I fucking love Patrick. Towards the end when he started talking about mental illness the last year in his life, I could really relate to that. And one of my best friends who suffers from Manic Depression. I'm extra excited for record #4 now.

    Yeah I was at the a Eagle rock show but only recently became aware of Maron myself and his IFC show. I fucking love how Maron sets up the band and Patrick before hand. Every sentiment I have about Titus is expressed by him. Stickles has such an interesting practical analysis towards many issues in life and the world. Yeah he's human and fucks up as well but he's all about the common man. I dig it.

    Agreed. I was looking at the comments (dumb, I know) and people were complaining that he was "pretentious" blahblahblah. How the fuck was any of that pretentious? If anything quite the opposite, one of the most earnest and honest interviews I've heard.

    Yeah. I thought the same thing. I guess he can rub people the wrong way by the way he speaks and carries himself since he has a literary take on most every subject and his analogies are poetic. It really hurts someone coming in cold and not knowing his music and background. We're Titus fans and we know his music, pain and struggles. I didn't find it pretentious at all. Maybe people were mad since it wasn't exactly funny and they were expect laughs from that podcast most of the time. Oh well. I fucking loved it. I find Stickles similar to Rollins. I can just hear either of them talk all day.

    I listened to it as well and loved it however, it rubbed me the wrong way at points as well. I don't think hes pretentious I just felt he came off a bit arrogant at points which was annoying. He is still really young and it seemed as though he knew everything already and knew how the world worked. for example the part about the rules that just don't apply to him, I really wanted to scream at him shut the fuck up, but I also thought he had some very amazing and honest things to say as well. My last thing; the marc maron podcast isn't really a comedy podcast so people were probably not upset about that part.

    first, thanks for posting this. very insightful and thought-provoking discussion.

    I think Stickles is bright young man who makes great music and has a shitload of really interesting ideas, most of which have merit. I expect his perspective will evolve as time goes on, as it does with all intelligent people. Which is a way of saying I agree with gillster, at least in many respects. But I love the guy and I love his brain and his music and his art. He's the most interesting person in music today.

    also, I'd never heard of Marc Maron before this. loved it. guy reminds me of me, if i were less of an asshole.

    It looks like Patrick and the boys are back in the studio, they posted a bunch of photos of their first few days recording. Patrick looks healthier than he did when I saw him last year, it looks like he has put on a little weight.

    Patrick thinks Courtney killed Kurt.

    http://www.spin.com/articles/titus-a...obain-twitter/

    April 30 2014, 2:07 PM ET

    Being a fan of Titus Andronicus, Nirvana, and Hole all at once just got a little awkward.


    The New Jersey-repping band fronted by Patrick Stickles has given the world many things: the Civil War-themed E Street-punk catharsis of 2010's The Monitor; the street-fighting scene commentary and deeply personal confessions of 2012's Local Business; and a whole lot of fist-pump-worthy live shows in between. Stickles even wrote an epic SPIN review of the Replacements' first show in 22 years. He's super talented.

    The man is a bit more caustic on Twitter, though — okay, maybe more than a bit — and Kurt Cobain's recently released death-scene note mocking his wedding vows to Courtney Love has led the Titus frontman's thinking to a dark place. As Stereogum points out, he has accused Love of killing her late husband, or at least faking the prevously seen suicide note. They're both ugly claims, and we have no truck with either of them.

    He wrote:

    "Okay, as long as we're talking, that note that the Seattle cops revealed that Kurt wrote, re: C Love? #OMO it says everything we always knew. lso, I think it proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Courtney either, A ) had Kurt killed, or B ) forged fake 'suicide note,' ditched real. I also want to go on the record saying that Kurt absolutely 100% wrote the songs on 'Live Through This,' ala BIG writing 'Hardcore' lyrics. Please don't forget – #OMO stands for 'One Man's Opinion' #SLINGNEWHASH"

    Replies to Twitter followers suggest Stickles isn't somehow being sarcastic and mocking conspiracy theorists here, though we're hopeful. He has said Titus Andronicus' next album will be a rock opera inspired by his struggles with manic depression, a condition he discussed in a recent interview with comedian/podcaster Marc Maron. As for Love, she recently released the snarling "Wedding Day."

    And as for the note, it's altogether possible it was written by the couple, together, as a joke, any time before or after their actual marriage in February of 1992. Also, it was considered in Seattle PD's recent revisiting of the case, which through newly unearthed evidence re-confirmed Cobain's death as a suicide.
