<br>Indie Hipsters: Scrawny little college kids with Rivers Cuomo glasses and Grizzly Adams beards wearing new "70's retro-style" t-shirts (usually a faux faded Star Wars iron-on), making soulless warmed over music that sounds like mid-period Crosby Stills and Nash. Usually they adopt a cheesy 80's act as a pet (like Hall and Oates or Huey Lewis) and run around sarcastically talking about the genius of it all.
The shitty singer/songwriter music they crank out is a soothing balm to the 60-something grey haired pony-tailed "hippies on the weekend" who hang out at Starbucks, of all places, to feel young again. You'll hear a lot of this wimpy caterwauling on NPR or on the narcoleptic sounds of the World Cafe. These kids would do well to buy a Sonic Youth or Pixies record before it's too late. [;)]

you could have just typed "Fleet Foxes" and saved yourself a bunch of time

They don't bother me as much as the zillions of mp3's and CD's of the clones I get in every week at the radio station. If I see one more press release from a band that look like they came from central casting, standing in a field somewhere and claiming Gram Parsons is the spirit that haunts their record, I'm gonna jump out this window.
[/quote]I gotta chime in here and agree that I do NOT understand the alt-folk crap that is all the rage these days. Much of the Fleet Foxes/Iron & Wine/Blitzen Trapper/Bon Iver sound is just old wine in new bottles. Thanks, but Nick Drake, Graham Parsons, Big Star (& Chris Bell, Skip Spence ,Elliot Smith, Neutral Milk Hotel, Red House Painters and many other bands who did the eerie/quiet acoustic-folk thing earlier and far better.

Exactly. I'm sure some will argue that bands like Interpol and The Rapture were just ripping off Post-Punk, but that entire movement is just a piddly drop in the bucket compared to the cultural tsunami of Alt-Folk crap that's been dominating Indie since about 2007. Of course, it's a boon for aging baby boomers who are looking for "safe" music they can listen to on their way to the cemetery.

I like Joni Mitchell. I have several Joni Mitchell albums. I don't need 20 million teeny weeny Joni Mitchells.

Just stop. Do something else. Plug in for a change. Fire the accordion player. Anything. Follow Bob Dylan's example and piss everyone off.

What a delight to watch. If I were religious I'd swear Schultz were an angel-- a veritable agent of god.

Sally Lightfoot would make a good wrestling name....but you'd have to be quick in order to live up to it.

Nasty game - but I'll play along.

A collective kick to reality show producers, for pandering to the lowest common denominator.


Oh, and an extra hard kick to the face of Patrick Cox of Taxmasters.

I assure you I have nothing but the best intentions for fun, please do not actually kick anyone in the face (unless they are on my list)
