"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Good morning John and crew. Love this Berge piece.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 6:28am John Allen:

good morning. not sure how to stop nature
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 6:52am AndrewC.:

Nature is in charge this morning. Also, was that 80's synth thing really a brand new record? I was loving the "Woo-hoo"s.

saludos amigos
  Wed. 5/22/13 7:55am Emile:

personally i dug the singer-songwriter stuff
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 7:57am John Allen:

glad to hear that, singer-songwriter sets can have a very polarizing effect
  Wed. 5/22/13 8:00am Shane:

That Matt Krefting piece was very nice. Do you have any label information for it, Mr. Allen?
  Wed. 5/22/13 8:00am Emile:

Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 8:03am John Allen:

Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 8:09am Michele:

Hi John and good morning all.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 8:13am maestroso:

Good morning John, and commenters. I too have been enjoying the singer-songwriter stuff.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 8:14am George of Troy:

I really like Matt Krefting's stuff. He's a very good writer as well. One of his blog posts recently led me to revisit The Bells by Lou Reed. He also wrote an interesting post about Bowie which in turn led me to Rick Moody's wild analysis of The Next Day.

Ah, second time I've heard this Brother JT in the last 6 days.

matt may be the most informed lou scholar I know.

Morning! 13th Floor pls!
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 8:43am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

How can you not like some 'singersongwriter'? I mean - what else are you going to do but - sing & write songs?...
