sad to see josh go. kinda wish i knew what happened to him. they added a new guitarist as well?
the new song is pretty awesome. super wild sound. very stoked to see them at these upcoming shows before the record is released. i'll see them at primavera but probably try to catch them at a more intimate venue, seeing them at deerhunter ATP as well. making up for lost time....
as for the fingers, i think i read it was a dedication to his dad who lost two fingers in a work related accident lol. i dont think his fingers are really fucked.
Edit: apparently FYF in 2007 was his last show with the band. The way things went down on stage, I can understand why.
the way things went down? can you elaborate? i didnt get into them until 2010
WTF? Bradford Cox is an absolute cock. The knob has basically tried his best to be this generation's Morrissey but doesn't have the wit, charisma or talent to pull it off.
thanks for the insight bmack.
idk darklands i dont see the comparison. where's morrisey's atlas sound?
We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
Hell, Atlas Sound has put out so many better songs than Morrissey solo. Fuck Morrissey and everything he's ever been a part of.
That being said, Morrissey deserves much of the hate he gets, and I much prefer Deerhunter to either The Smiths or Morrissey.
Bradford clearly states that he hates the Smiths "mainly because of their incredibly arrogant singer." I know plenty of people who share this opinion, and for good reason. That is quite different than hating on an act for not falling into your incredibly limited view of what good rock music can be. And, thankfully, we can all rest easy knowing that Joey Ramone would not have given a shit what that ponce thinks.
I love Deerhunter even more than I did before. WE'RE SOULMATES.I like all music, really, except The Smiths.
see?BC: The only Smiths songs I remotely like, the rhythm section makes the song. What's the song, "I haven't got a stitch to wear…?" "This Charming Man," the bass and drums on that song are pretty good, and I think the guitar is pretty good too. Basically everything except the terrible vocals. I should say this, though: There are worse lyricists. I can't think of any. But none come to mind. Can you just imagine The Smiths fronted by Darby Crash [of The Germs]? It might sound a little bit like Deerhunter. I mean, not to say I sound like Darby Crash. His lyrics, honestly, are comparable to, like, Rimbaud.
MA: It's such a good idea. I'm texting Goldenvoice right now, next year's Coachella has got it.

I think I'm reading the Stooges reference as a rip, maybe not a strong one, but a rip nevertheless. I'd like to see Morrissey play any of James Williamson's solos, or, for that matter, anything Ron Asheton played.
And dear god, Darby Crash fronting the Smiths. That would have been out of this world.
Weren't Morrissey and the Stooges suppose to co-headline a show at Staples not too long ago, before it got cancelled? I imagine he respects them now if he didn't back then. And, aren't a majority of lead singers egotistical pricks? I don't agree with what he said about the Ramones, but why give a shit what Morrissey says anyway?
Because fuck Morrissey?
Honestly, I treat him the way I treat Varg Vikernes (Burzum): I detest the dude, but enjoy a decent amount of his music.
And people, lets get one thing straight: it's Ramones. Loud, Fast, Ramones. Not Loud, Fast, The Ramones.
Wiki says Ramones released their debut earlier that year on Sire.
Moz has an adoration for Iggy Pop, I know that. Not too sure what he thinks of the Stooges, though.
Anyway, there's no reason to give a shit what Morrissey thinks if you already don't give a shit about Morrissey.
This isn't a thread about Morrissey though, as much as he'd like it to be, as much as we're allowing him to permeate the air with his foul and fey musk.
One of the cooler live Deerhunter moments I've seen:
Later in the set, they were joined by Dan of Grizzly Bear on guitar.
English punk rockers vs American punk rockers.
I was talking to Ian from Black Lips on SS Coachella and describe Bradford not in the extact words but in the sense that he is a diva.Which every time I have gotten to talk to Bradford, He was very nice and yes was "loud" about his taste in music.
Morrissey is not, and never was, 'punk rock'.
I am here to say that the new album is awesome. Gribbz, looking forward to your review of their Psych festival set.
