"I was at that show, it was awesome, and the light show was amazing as I recall. I couldn't believe how tight the Attractions were. Too bad Elvis screwed them over when he went solo. I never enjoyed his solo stuff as much. The local authorities…"

"Whatever one thinks of selling out/not selling out, here I think the product and celebrity go together: Blixa Bargeld doing crypto-dada poetry by reading out of a 'Hornbach' catalog. His name, Blixa Bargeld, is a mixture of…"

John P. Strohm commented on Ian Brewer's blog post Iggy Pop or John Lydon
"The thing that strikes me about this is that Lydon's just doing the same schtick he's been doing for ages. I'm sure it was initially 99% Malcom, but the Pistols always had this strategy of beating everyone to the punch by calling…"

Ian Brewer commented on Ian Brewer's blog post Iggy Pop or John Lydon
"Ed, I think the very blandness of these products is the exact reason Iggy and John were selected as spokesmen. If you're trying to sell something that's essentially boring, you have to come up with unique, attention grabbing ways to market…"

Iggy Pop or John Lydon

Compare and contrast. Develop a coherent thesis discussing the differences and similarities between Iggy and Johnny.

For you girls and gay guys: Which is sexier? Lydon in a suit or Iggy with his shirt off. Are they both gross? Explain why in detail.

For the rest of you: Are they sellouts, or have they co-opted the system?…

R.I.P. There goes another major transformative punk rock cultural icon

News has it that Lux Interior from The Cramps has passed away. Without The Cramps, there may not have been the whole punk and goth rockabilly scene (how un-Hegelian of me). There would be no tattooed Betty Page lookalikes to gawk at when you go to punk shows.

Read all about it

I still listen to The Cramps. Psychedelic Jungle is my favorite.

So did The… Continue

Hello Mamaw..

Ian--I've found that they do fit if I slip in inserts (usually having the trim the inserts with scissors)... Otherwise they're too loos on my feet.
