Went to see The Laurels, a great My Bloody Valentine-type band from Sydney on Saturday in LA. Figured they would go on at about 11:00. We got there at 9:45, but they had started promptly at 9:00 and ended at 9:45. Friend forgot his ID anyway. Ugh. I did get to chat with them out front for a bit.
Liking the Savages and have tickets to their LA show in July (on a Tues. at the El Ray). Tired of emo crap. The lead singer's ferocity is reminiscent of early Sinead. What is it with dainty girls with short hair?
“Technology has made music accessible in a philosophically interesting way, which is great,” says Bangalter, talking about the proliferation of home recording and the laptop studio. “But on the other hand, when everybody has the ability to make magic, it's like there's no more magic—if the audience can just do it themselves, why are they going to bother?”
