Boss Stuff on the Interwebs: Wednesday Links 26/01/11

  • I'm already on the record as saying how much I love a good music documentary. Big Fun in the Big Town goes back to 1986's "up and coming" hip-hop movement in NYC. It features a young  Run DMC, Grandmaster Flash, Ice-T, Biz Markie, LL Cool J ...the list goes on, the documentary looks great, and guerolitomusic just reminded me that the word "fresh" needs to make a comeback.
  • Six months after a cautiously positive review, and just one month after naming it the #2 best album of last year, Stereogum has a nice long article complaining about Arcade Fire's The Suburbs. Not that I care either way, but pick a side. Then just wait for the next single to come out to milk the album for pageviews, like the rest of us.
  • Wondering what "progressive shoegaze" is? Hyperbole will demonstrate with Melbourne band Leagues and a sweet picture of Wonderwoman. 
  • What's Protocol has The Swell Season, The Frames, and City & Colour. Saves me three posts right there.
  • So the creator of the musical abomination that is Glee got pissy with Kings of Leon and Slash because they won't let the show use their music. is the only necessary rebuttal to that bitchery (Spinner

  1. Thanks so much for the Glee Sucks link. Never knew there was such a beast, glad there is.
    The sub-head says it all - "Dear God, America. We used to go to the moon."
    Thanks for the chuckle.
