...randomness surrounding Guided by Voices, Robert Pollard, and other great indie rock bands; a quasi objective look at "my" sporting teams; the random horror film; plus other crap as we see fit...all with a Pittsburgh based feel.

Peter Hook talks Ian Curtis

 #22 of the 50 Key Events In the History of Indie Music by The Guardian, Peter Hook discusses the time surrounding the making of Closer and Ian's suicide.  Pretty good little read for the Joy Division fans. 


:07 Hook's bass line, :48 Sumner's riff, 1:40 Curtis loses control, all wrapped in a bow by Morris's perfecto drum beats. fckya.

Damn you have a lot of favourite bands.

I don't recall hearing that La Liga expanded to 167 clubs.

Joy Divisions are like your Malaga. Hanging around in the top division, despite a small body of work to judge.
