Saw some backlash on the title of Ghost’s piece. I actually like the title and is perfect for a piece coming out of the Swill.  Harns has been doing a lot of respectable work and no one has picked up on it outside of our circle.  I don’t think a change to Ghost’s title would make much of a difference.

I felt like I had to be very provocative with the title. If I have time today I'll post a duplicate with a different title

"Fuck BSPN!  Fuck'em right in the ass!!!" sounds about right

Hang on here. Pulp's "common people" may be one of the top 10 songs of the last 25 years.

It's a matter of taste - I think Oasis' genius was very short lived, whereas Suede was really able to reinvent themselves a number of times.

The last few albums definitely had some clunkers, but there's some really good stuff in there, too. It all started to go downhill when Noel let other guys start writing songs (his solo stuff is excellent). But those first two albums are impeccable, and they have at least a full album's worth of b-sides that are good enough to be a-sides. They should get credit for The Masterplan as one of their albums, and there are some quality b-sides that didn't even make that (or came out afterwards).

Call me up when some one off mgoblow can write something more than a 10 pages long that can get over 15k views. The morons on that page that work at ESPN are butt hurt and they can’t even spell Mark Dantonio.

The irony is that that poster's screen name appears to be "ReadYourGuard". But he doesn't bother to (or can't) read.

So gHost is going to be interviewed on WILS radio in Lansing tomorrow morning, according to tRCMB?

I just posted in the thread over that they appear to post several podcasts at: http://1320wils.com/podcasts/the-wils-morning-wake-up

But hopefully someone records it, just in case.

I agree with everything you posted.

Overall, I found Suede to be better because of their longevity and ability to remain relevant after Britpop died. Brett Anderson is a great songwriter and doesn't get the credit he deserves IMO. It's sort of like arguing which excellent beer is better

To be honest, I'm not actually very familiar with Suede at all, but I fucking love Oasis.

Only thing that made me sad was when Ghost called me "some guy" on twitter. Just to let everyone know I was installing a new sump pump at my mothers when ghost reached out to me asking if I was interested in making 50 bucks. My mother was just watching me do the install and said she could do it so she went downtown and did the pick up... so I think we all know where the credit should be directed.
