Rapper has two p's, luckily for you the word is rapist not raper or that would read very strange.

It's so hard to choose a favorite raper. Some rapers are better than others, while some have such wildly different raping styles as to make comparisons arbitrary.

I guess I prefer old-school rapers over todays bunch who are less political than the early rapers. My least favorite raper is that guy out of Ferris Beuller though.

Yeah, Matthew Broderick, smarmy little cunny.

I have been a fan since I heard 'Cut Your Hair'. Have you heard any of Malkmus' solo stuff? I have been listening to 'Face The Truth' quite a bit - great lyricist. You'd like Graham Coxon's solo stuff as well I reckon. Check it out.

Most of my signatures come from the off-kilter, John Ashberryesque poetry of s.m.

"You're the maker of modern, minor masterpieces for the untrained eye" is from "Post-Paint Boy".

and "The Hook" from his self-titled? I couldn't STOP playing that.

I feel so honoured, I mean nauseous.

Seriously, check out Coxon. I think he wants to be Malkmus.

My choices are kinda old school, and maybe even a bit generic, but here goes:

Da Stones
Bob Dylan
Van Morrison
Bing Crosby
The Replacements
Kings of Leon (just to prove that yes, I can listen to and enjoy music made after 1986)

Screw Coxon and all the churchy virgin types who desire his speccy, testosterone-free progeny. Can't sing either.

Malkmus can fuck a squirrel too, he hasn't written a tune since Range Life and only keeps a record deal because of dewy-eyed aging indie-losers. Also can't sing.

Now Girls Aloud, that's a fun time.

Malkmus...Also can't sing


I think the first track of their first album, Silence Kid, pretty much disproves your point there Paz.

I you think Malkmus can't sing, you probably really really hate Tom Verlaine too. Him and Richard Hell.

Television are great too - Marquee Moon has some great guitar playing. Some of it is a bit overlong though. Nine minutes of solo? Too much for me.

Silence Kid was actually the first song on their second album. I'm only mentioning it because the first song on their first album is Summer Babe which may be the best indie rock song of all time

Done...and Done. I have way too many albums already, but I'm willing to make an exception for my beloved Malkster.

Not sure about this obsession with bonus tracks the record companies have though. 30?! I hope they're not all out-takes, or alternate takes, or fake-takes, or what have you though.

And I know it's probably historically relevant for massive fans of the album, but who wants to hear some lo-fi version of Creep recorded in a bath-tub at its moment of conception? Well, I guess a lot of you crazy-ass obsessives, but not me.

The extra tracks are actually pretty great. There's a bunch of great b-sides, a live show, a John Peel session and the whole Watery Domestic EP

Is it me, or does Larry Mullen Jnr look eerily like a drag-queen there on the right? Methinks in his panic to get ready for the photo-shoot he confused the after-shave with the blusher.

I did, and he is. But I loved it. The guy speaks poetry, so I'll listen to him talk all afternoon. The way he speaks about the world and music and religion just meshes really well with my own views.

Sure. Nothing wrong with talking a lot. What blew my mind, though, when I first picked up the magazine was that I flipped through the article to see how many pages it was and noticed that the interview was looong. Then I got a couple of paragraphs in and found out that what made print only comprised about 20% of the actual interview. Like I said, the man is a talker.

That's the name of our club!

Personally, I prefer the early stuff off the singles collection Westing (By Musket and Sextant).

lo-fi "preppy grunge", the guitars soaring thru the sludge.

Gary Young was a brilliant punk drummer.

I don't think they're the best band, but I do think they're relevant. I'd disagree about the 'speaking poetry' comment though. Bob Dylan speaks poetry. Bono says what he means.

Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, fantomas...ect.)
Geoff Tate (Queensryche)
Freddy Mercury (Queen)
Marvin Gaye
Al Green


Overrated:

All rap artists ("artists" is a term I will use loosely). Honestly, I find rap/hip-hop to be fairly (not completely) devoid of artistic merit. IMHO most rap is not too far from cock rock in it's content. Most "songs" are about how cool the rapper is, how much pu$$y they get, and how much/cool they party. Can anyone say "Cherry Pie"

Vastly overrated:

U2 - never understood the draw. They've had a couple of good hits, but haven't written a truely excellent album since the late 80's. I think alot of you are beating a dead horse out there.


I am sure a fire storm of rap loving U2 fans will now descend upon me like so many vultures.
