Having read a bit more of Collapse Board, I’m re-editing this article to wibble more about the blog, which is really bloody good.
Everett True and Lydia Lunch have a lot in common: I love the idea of them a lot more than I like most of anything they do.
Once in a blue moon, though, they come up with something that reminds me why they were so bloody essential in the first place. Today, it was catching up on a few of True’s posts on new blog Collapse Board, and his link to this Sonic Youth ft Lydia Lunch track in a review of new band 8 Eye Spy. Somehow the blend of Sonic’s droning, pummelling noise with Lydia’s yowling actually works, creating a life-affirming racket that’s quite catchy in its own noisy way.
