I was asked recently to give advice to young writers about entering music journalism and I got really discouraged. However, I think what most discourages me is that there’s a blog (that rhymes with Bloatedgascork) that gave The Stooges "Raw Power" a 7.1 while giving The XX an 8.7. I’m completely at a loss for words.
But you know what? I just finished watching Christopher give (what some might call) his rant to a room full of folks for the third time and I feel like all is not lost. Pay attention and be adventurous in your music decisions. (Click here to watch the video. It was embedded, but it would immediately start playing when it was. Grrrrr…)
And buy the new album by Slices.
