Feels blind

How did it take me until age 42 to finally get around to listening to Bikini Kill?


  1. Have you given The Dead Weather a listen? Try Horehound. If you like Bikini Kill then you should love Jack White's newest incarnation.

  2. Nay and nay. Maybe it won't take me 20 years to get around to them. Thanks!

    (Scary news: I am one year *younger* than Kathleen Hanna.)

  3. Hey, it took me thirty years to give the New York Dolls a second chance, by which time I was laughing at all the bands I liked when they were "new" that stole wildly from them.

    Should we start a thread here or on my blog about interesting music picked up during the last year? Thanks to Spotify (where I gave the Dolls another chance), I'm finding more to mention than usual... And it may give music geeks a chance to scoff at my "Meh" reaction to the giant multi-disk issue of the Smile sessions.

  4. Oh, your place, definitely.

    Finally breaking down and getting an iPhone next month, it seems, so I may take the leap into iTunes as well.

    If Smile had been that great, it would've come out 30 years ago. And even then. Sly's Riot Goin On would've been better as a lost carton of tapes ....

  5. I'm just a year behind you, Anderson. Always assumed you were older than that.

    I downloaded some older Cary Hudson tunes yesterday. I need to get the new Wilco and give it a spin. I'll check out the Dolls while in the iTunes store.

  6. Ignatius, if you liked Tyler Keith and the Preacher's Kids, you'd like the NY Dolls.

  7. Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Spending some time and actual
    effort to create a good article… but what can I say… I put
    things off a whole lot and don't manage to get nearly anything done.
