Finally. After months of neglect, those mean brats at Buddyhead came back with a giant, 6,000-word gossip update and simultaneously reintroduced the word “jive” into the lexicon as the ultimate pejorative. Welcome back, fucktards!
On Jesus and Mary Chain: “Well here’s the bummer part… Besides the Reid brothers openly admitting in the press that they’re still not on good terms with each other, and are only really doing the reunion for the dough, we’ve also heard that instead of going the obvious route and calling up Hope Sandoval to sing all the female vocal parts, William and Jim are letting Justin Timberlake’s slam piece, Scarlett Johansson, sing those songs. This is an obvious neglection of the very important “NO ACTORS ON STAGE” rule. Especially when said girl has a man voice, and was in Home Alone 3. If this rumor is true, and she does end up on stage with JAMC, Buddyhead will be rewarding anyone who can welcome that poser to rock n’ roll by tagging her with a cup of beer. We’re talking cash prizes here kids. Do us proud.”
More highlights after the jump…
On Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready: “Dude, you went from some shitty wannabe Stevie Ray Vaughn stee-lo in the 90’s, to lookin’ like an overweight stunt double for Brian Baker from Bad Religion. Yer BLOWING the entire live show for the band. Shitty cock rock wah-wah solos, and throwing pics into the crowd every 5 seconds in your board shorts and spiky lesbian gym coach haircut? Just when we wanna try to fully back Pearl Jam, you make it impossible for us to do so. Eddie, Stoney… pull this geek aside and have a fashion/stage moves intervention on him, PLEASE.”
On the Stooges’ Asheton brothers: “You guys would be better off kicking out Iggy and starting a new band with somebody else. Fuck, David Lee Roth would be a much better idea for a frontman… We’re pretty sure he isn’t doing anything now that the Van Halen reunion tour is off. If you choose to go that route… we got your back again. Think about it… Ron Asheton shredding fuzzed out wah-wah solos in people’s faces while Diamond Dave jumps off the front of Scott’s kit the entire show. It’s a no lose situation.”
On the Smashing Pumpkins: “The sketchiest part about this whole “reunion” thing though, is how the Pumpkins camp isn’t being too eager to announce who the two “not James Iha and D’arcy” people are. In case ya were wondering, the new bass player happens to be Ginger Reyes (formerly of the Halo Friendlies) and the guitar player is a dude named Jeff Schroeder (he used to be in some dorky Silverlake band called The Lassie Foundation). Siiiiiick dudes, real exciting! They originally tried out Eric Avery, but Billy didn’t think he could “keep up”. By the way, Bill… are you ever gonna admit that you and Courtney Love were banging when she was married to Kurt Cobain, and that this probably had more than just a smidge to do with homeboy checkin’ out early?”
On Rolling Stone: “Why don’t you guys stick to what you started writing about back in 1966… ROCK N’ ROLL! The fact that you guys get paid to write about music is a crime. You think My Chemical Romance’s last album is better than Tom Petty’s? You guys writing about music is the equivalent of us getting paid to be astronauts. Yeah, you guessed it… we don’t know shit about outer space!”

i guess theyre not gonna buy her tom waits cover album…
You know, I was just wondering yesterday whatever happened to that site. Buddyhead was my favorite thing in the world in 2000.
the fact that a guy from the lassie foundation is in the new smashing pumpkins sorta makes me want to buy their album more. i LOVE the lassie foundation.
They even nail my beloved Primal Scream with some news that Bobby and the boys need to hear (esp. since I know that the Scream are tight with the Buddyhead crew):
“Primal Scream are making another new record soon. Hey guys, lets make this one not suck, huh? No more fake southern rock records please, because you guys are not good at it, and ENGLISH! So stick to the rock n’ roll rave shit where you rip off The Stooges and put crazy dancey techno shit all over that sounds good on drugs. That shit rules.”
Great MBV line:
“We’re pretty sure Kevin Shields and My Bloody Valentine are making a record and will be touring this time next year if homeboy doesn’t eat a truck load of Ecstasy and waste a few million pounds like he did last time he tried to make an album. Kevin, put the bong down. Put it DOWN! If you keep fucking this up, Gus Brandt is going to find you, and pistol whip you every time you try leaving the studio after another full day of re-recording white-noise nobody but you can hear anyway.”
This stuff is hilarious, but trying to read it all in one sitting is proving to be wearying… I think I can, I think I can…
