"[we’re doomed for failure because] …We’re too fucked-up for the people who like pretty music, and we’re too pretty for the people who like fucked-up music”

Tim Kinsella/Music

I get so frustrated with music sometimes, I guess that’s what happens when you love something so much. I end up hating bands I actually love. To me Tim Kinsella (and comrades) is the perfect example of what music should be. Joan of Arc* is literally the only band I can think of that doesn’t annoy me, it’s shattered and it’s pure. It does what it wants and it is so obtuse and almost anti-music that it stands alone. I know at first this can be frustrating but they’re the most rewarding band I’ve ever listened to. I think sometimes people don’t understand the bands I like because with music, songs can relate to you on such a specific level that very few people get that reaction that you do. It’s the same with other bands it’s such a specific thing that it can only affect a limited amount of people dramatically. The thing with bands like Radiohead and Arcade Fire is that they’re universally beautiful, but as a result they can never reach the level of connection that very specific songs can. In short I love Tim Kinsella’s music intensely, his book is brilliant as well.

This came in the mail today!

I really need to get this book so this is here to remind me. Tim tells the best stories at gigs so it’ll be nice to see what fictional ones he has!
