Haha, no I've not. Will check it out, though. I bet it's awesome. I have a book that has a whole chapter on him bashing the early nineties indie rock music (can't remember the name for my life, bought it over a decade ago), and I was really entertained with his writings... no matter how much of a prick he may be.
^ Bishop, that's one of my fave chapters of rock criticism. He flambes The Pixies & has the balls to list what he charged each band for his services. My buddy plays on Steve's softball team The Electrons and took me to a party at his studio Electrical Audio. He was my idol in high school, growing up in Chicago, so needless to say I was pretty dumbstruck.
Zapp my friend loves Set Fire To Flames. I don't know how pertinent it is, but I felt like it was pretty pertinent.
Quite pertinent, indeed. I originally felt like there was too little to cling to, but the album picked up steam in a big way. It's just so different than GYBE, and I think I had my heart set on a new (to me) amazing GYBE album. It's far more ambient/droney. It kind of makes me feel like a bad fan because I'm longing for those epic life-affirming sections.
