Quote of the Derp


"I like the idea of MGMT using their popularity to bring some new bands into the fold. And not just new bands but really nice sounding bands. I didn't hear of any of the other bands on this album but I gotta say that I really like them. For MGMT to vouch for all these guys it makes sense that they must meet their high musical standards which I suspect that they do."

-- Commenter Drew G. at iTunes, who rates the new MGMT release, Late Night Tales, at a full five stars

As Drew alluded to, the record is a compilation of music from some of MGMT's favorite bands and artists.

Included are tracks from the Velvet Underground, Julian Cope, the Durutti Column, Spacemen 3, Felt and the Chills.

I hate to tell Drew G. that I've been listening VU and Suicide since probably before he was born.

That's impossible. Music as a whole is only 23 years old.

This reminds me of that college DJ who, 20-odd years ago, was interviewing Bob Mould and decided to go off on Bob for being a derivative, unoriginal hack who had blatantly ripped off those seminal post-punk legends known as Husker Du.

Bob let the guy rant for a good five minutes before informing the DJ, "You do know that I was in Husker Du?"

Maybe the loudest silence I've ever heard.

There's this underground band out there called 'the Cure' or something. You should check them out. They're gonna be big someday.

Couple years ago, I hearted MGMT like a junior high school girl. Played the shit out of both albums until I got sick of them. Then this summer I put them back on the playlist. Groovin' smart band who are much better now that they have learned to play their instruments.

Christ, Cope and VU were considered old has-beens 20 years ago.
