I know you're a really new fan to AnCo, but just so you know, they play songs live and experiment with them way before they record them with pretty much every record. They were playing the MPP songs for years before they recorded that album. There's this ancient process called "research" where you could look at old setlists and figure that out.
Also, in case you didn't realize, they have made records before MPP, all off which contain "pretty significant changes" from the ones previous. That's one of the cool things about them is that they reinvent themselves with every record. If you ever want to bro out and explore AnCo records together, you know how to reach me.
Thanks for talking to me, but I want to stress that I am NOT the "driving force" behind the Atlanta Music Roundtable. I play a very small roll in that cool group of folks. Denton from Little Advances is the main man behind that coalition, and he and the other local bloggers contribute much more to AMR than myself.
Great piece. I wish I was smart enough to quit.
Only thing I would say, though, is that journalism is far from the only "profession where people basically sit at their desk telling you how much of a shithead you are all day long." Pretty much every single job that is the public eye comes with intense criticism. Politicians, athletes, movie stars, you name it. It kind of comes with the territory of having an influential voice. Until very, very recently, when newspapers moved to the Internet and chose to have comment sections, journalists were the ones sitting at a desk telling everyone else they were shitheads. Only seems fitting journalists should have to take what they've been dishing out for hundreds of years.
Calling out a larger media organization for misrepresenting the facts about your city? And throwing in jabs because the writer is old and out of touch? I'm so proud of you that I'm not even mad you're ripping my style. Good job Mr. Rappin.
This is not "the first glimpse" of what Chambers has been up to. http://chamberss.bandcamp.com/album/ep1mmx…
You can't even keep up with DP acts now? Come on man, you're seriously slipping. And "Old Standbys"? LOL. Are you aware of the other music you post about? "This corner of the Internet" does seem to know less.
PS - If there is still an editor over there, have them find the quotation mark that is grammatically incorrect.
I hope we get a third post hyping this show. CL has some of the finest publicists in the business.
"Culturally privileged?" Really?
The point I'm making is that all media is biased. The writer likes to pretend he's some paradigm of journalistic objectivity, when there's no such thing. And even if there was, he'd be the farthest from it.
Remember, he made this claim:
"The bottom line is that while some music blogging passes as good journalism, blogging and journalism are rarely the same."
So I'm gonna call him out when he makes grammatical and factual errors and writes about his buddies, as he often does.
He summoned this shit blizzard, so beware, the shit hawks are watching.
