Some pretty awesome news just surfaced about this fall’s All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in New York. 1st is that it’s being curated by My Bloody Valentine, their first show in the US in 16 years. 2nd is that the rest of the lineup is stellar as well.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 25th at the ATP site. Only 3000 available.
Great interview from TSOYA with Steve Albini (responsible for arguably the best production in music – i.e. Nirvana, Pixies, Don Caballero, etc). Kind of long, but really worth the listen.
Here’s an excerpt:
“There was one really industrious fellow who collected a jar with his phlegm, and saturated a brick with it, and threw the brick at me.”
And if you’re interested to read about the process in which major labels rape the music industry, check out this poignant article by Albini: “The Problem With Music“.
There’s also a great new documentary out on Gervais – “New Hero of Comedy“.
