Re: “The Theory: The Theory (Self-released)

Actually, keyboardist Jon Powell hails from England, so that makes for four cultural ingredients in this "salad bowl" (not melting pot) of a band.

Re: “Noise Annoys

Not bad, it sounds like an attempt at early 90's hip-hop like Guru's Jazzmatazz

Wow. Seriously good vocals. Some youtubing found the excellent "If I Were You", too.

Re: “Awe, Nostalgia

Will they be selling heroin and throwing up fucking pancake batter at the show? Asking for a friend.

Re: “Vintage Vinyl

At least there were only four of them when I saw them. The audience was the fifth. Some sites list 5 band members, but that is not my remembrance.

Hey, I remember "The Five of Us". It was a great little 4 piece group!

Re: “Too Much Junkie Business

great read - thanks. "everybody stares, and everybody hoots. johnny always needs, more than he shoots. new york city, i guess it's cool when it's dark, and there's one sure way, you can leave your mark. johnny's gonna die.."
just finished 'trouble boys' about the replacements and the story about paul westerberg seeing thunders and the look in his eyes, and getting this jolt and writing 'johnny's gonna die' right after that, plus the audacity to write it while he was still alive and close to his peak is chilling.

Re: “Tale of Two Cities

as much as i don't love amazonians, tech has actually brought more people of color to lily-white seattle. because they make a good living, it seems tacocat thinks they don't count?

also, most tech workers are not evil kingpins a la bezos or zuckerberg. they are just people trying to make a living with the skills they possess (like tacocat). and yes they are not cool, but who the hell cares? ignore them instead of making it a poitical statement to dog on a group of people you don't like. why should individuals be held to a higher level of social responsibility than a band? yes, they are douchebags on the weekend. but after working 80 hour weeks wth are they supposed to do? hide so that people who work 15 hours/week can be sufficiently not annoyed? you obviously have to have never worked a high-stress job to not be able understand the very real trauma inflicted on those kinds of workers (no matter what their paygrade), who often have no means of venting or social interaction except being blacked out on the weekend. and YES THAT IS GROSS. but you can't just categorically shit on people because you find them annoying or they are not perfect at dealing with their own shit. it's great that a "punk" band can be so emotionally stable, but most people aren't.

there are also benefits to living in a financially vibrant city--it allows things like minimum wage to go up and benefit everyone. yes, developers should absolutely be controlled because they are a source of a LOT of problems, so fight that. but the issue is a lot more complex than boohoo let's stop the bros. the problem is HOW developers develop, not that people are moving to your city and outnumbering you and you think they're lame (which they are). you can also despise the tech culture but understand there are benefits to having AN industry support a city vs having it be in decay. $$ also makes it a lot safer for women and allow them to be independent AND SAFE. read about the seattle scene in the 80s and 90s, it was actually physically dangerous for all genders.



--non tech, woc in seattle

Re: “Tale of Two Cities

"These decisions can't be left in the hands of developers, investors and corporations," Katters concludes.

Well that's exactly who's hands they are left in and no thanks to the Tucson Weekly who some of us remember not only allowed and accepted it, but tried to ridicule and shame anyone who criticized the downtown revitalization of the last 10 years.

Enjoy your rising rents, mediocre overpriced bars and restaurants, and for all intents and purposes shrinking of any true local arts and music scene with the expansion of the mall culture scene.
