I hate it when people dismiss a band because they had too much radio play or because the type of music they made goes out of fashion. And I hate it when people disregard a band's great period because they start to suck down the line. That happened to Guster; that happened to Barenaked Ladies, most notoriously that happened to Dave Matthews Band.
You know who has, like, a dozen INCREDIBLE records? Fucking Chumbawamba. Go ahead and roll your eyes - if you're 95% of the country, all you know is Tubthumping. You wouldn't know that they're viciously political pure-blooded anarchists who had an unstoppable run of great albums from 1994-2004.
As long as you're doing something interesting, then I'm interested. It might not scan that way, but I'm not a music snob. I just know what I hate.
I know they were at Sasquatch in '09 and they'll be in Seattle on March 8th and their tour is schedule to end on April 2nd, but I wouldn't be completely surprised if Crystal Castles return, especially since they're supporting a new album. pitchfork.com/news/40472-crystal-castles-set-spring-tour/
I think this holds some serious water for the Red Hot Chili Peppers headlining next year. The article says they hope to drop thier new album in March and that they've already booked festival appearences.
