Interesting interview, and interesting that Damon brought up Beat Happening. Galaxie 500 and Beat Happening were two bands that I felt like I should like, and I thought they were making music for all the right reasons and conducting their careers in the "right" way, whatever that means, but when I heard the music at the time, I was unmoved. I've since come to appreciate both bands a little more. And I'm a fan of Luna. What does Damon and Naomi sound like?
Damon and Naomi sound A LOT like Galaxy 500. More so than Luna, I'd say. Very simple chords, kind of sad, and dreamy. Wouldn't it be nice if Glorious Noise put up an FTP server where we could all share mp3's...eh? eh?

Speaking of Galaxy 500, I bought that dvd but haven't watched much of it. I love the band but watching them can be a little boring at times. Deaner and friends seem to take themselves a little too seriously at times also...they've always got this oh so serious, artsy air about them when they play. I always pictured them as more dorks. I'm sure I'll watch it all and enjoy it at some point.

Yeah, so we could get shut down that much sooner! This label is already breaking the bank, let's not invite lawsuits.
The interview with James McNew from Yo La Tengo in the new G500 (yeah) is pretty funny. He starts with 'Jesus Christ, this looks really unprofessional, and the sound is awful. I can't hear the bass at all. Is the whole DVD going to be like this? Don't you think this gives an unfair impression of the Middle East club circa 1988?'
I like his style.
