Quote of the Day


"I'll piss on fucking Radiohead, because of all this pomposity... Do I belong in the conversation about the best artists in the world? My answer is 'yes, I do,'"

-- Bill Corgan, of course

I've heard the new Smashing Pumpkins album, Billy. And the last five, for that matter.

No, you don't.

They used to be great.
Emphasis on "used to."

Sounds like he's got the "Oasis Syndrome".

ntx said...

Hmmm, I wonder if Smashing Pumpkins has an album coming out. Why, yes they do -- next week in fact! Don't encourage him, Chez.

FabMax said...

Nah. They never were great, and only because Corgan's voice sounds like a steel pipe being shoved through a wood chipper.

He's not even the best artist in his neighborhood: Schroeder can rock that little piano.

I sort of imagine Jonny Greenwood telling Thom Yorke about this and then having to explain to him that Billly Corgan is this bloke who used to date Courtney Love.

I can't in good faith take anything you say seriously about anything music-related after you posted that new Offspring single. It's because of you that I know it exists. Shaaaame.

Chez said...

Blow me.

"Radiohead think they are really important, but I am really important."

We'll have to agree to disagree on that one Billy...

Meanwhile, I saw Radiohead last week and I've got to say they all seemed to just be enjoying themselves, smiling a good bit of the time, not fretting over how seriously they are being taken. Plus, with Thom Yorke's dancing could anyone really take them that seriously? It's adorable, but dude dances like a spazzy little kid.

Chez said...

Corgan's a cunt.

That really is the best word I can think of to describe him.

Corgan: "Blow me"

Milton says: Corgan may be a cunt, or whatever else you may want to call him... still, his music is much, much better than any thing Offspring ever produced, imho (as nice as the guys from Offspring may be) and i know they're your friends Chez, but it doesn't change the fact that they suck (and feel free to say blow me again).

Chez said...

Milton, it's really rare that I knock the hell out of somebody in the comment section unless he or she has been openly hostile. When I've done it in the past, though, it's usually when someone has decided to argue musical taste with me. The music you like is something so subjective that there's never any right or wrong, therefore it's fucking ludicrous to say, "Well, I don't like them so that means they suck and you have shit taste for liking them, so there."

You don't like the Offspring? Fine. I've liked them for years -- long before I became friends with Pete. Bothering to comment on the fact that you don't like them -- and on a post, by the way, that had nothing at all to do with them -- makes you nothing more than a troll looking for attention.

Milton says: Chez, you are absolutely right, and please accept my sincere apologies. i was drunk and out of line. i did not mean to troll you. i do like your website and i agree with you on a lot of things. although we may have different musical tastes!
still i am truly sorry for making that asshole comment.
