How I Critique Musique...

You may have to click on this image for it to be readable (and I've spent the past 3 hours losing my mind over .tifs and .gifs and .milfs and .rtfs and all kinds of scanner crap that's frankly giving me a headache) but I think all the haters out there would at least like to know what I take into account when I'm reviewing music. Well, here it is...

Really? Are you really going to do this? There’s a fine big thick fucking line between making cool merchandise to excite your fans and making exclusive, expensive cash-grab merchandise to take advantage of your completest fans. And The White Stripes have been crossing that line for years with record players and posters and buttons and vinyl and USB drives and fucking sewing kits. I’m telling you right now, I’m going to try to be one of the first 333 so I can put that “mystery gift” on ebay. What’s the difference between Jack exploiting White Stripes fans and Jasper exploiting White Stripes fans…besides the ebay commission I’ll have to pay? I think I’m more deserving of the money anyway…I still live in Detroit. Oh! Snap!

I hope Meg is doing better.

I all honesty, I think they could cover this one. I mean, Jack already sounds like he’s playing 3 guitars at once, and Meg on cowbell could be pretty amazing.

Or maybe they’ve enlisted some fellow Michiganders to do this one.

D-Tails and D-Construction of D-Tour Launch...
Friday night found me catching the last few songs of Carjack's set. Beginning to like him more and more. As a wise man once said, you can't have Detroit without a good carjack. There was a brief moment where his backing track was a spot-on replica of Suicide's drum machine sound. I first had that feeling when some DJ in Europe played Dead Combo's "You Don't Look So Good" (an overlooked classic if there ever was) and you think it'd happen a lot more. But it doesn't. Good for us. Check out CJ's cd-r/demo/whatever and dig on the total Kraftwerk instrumental of "Carbot's Departure"...beautifully sparse and pastoral in an unexpected yet totally welcome change of pace or "departure." Get it?

The Terrible Twos wreaked havoc after that. I can safely say that the Garden Bowl lounge has, pound for pound, hosted an overwhelming majority of my favorite shows in this town. Greenhornes on Superbowl Sunday '99 (2 sets), Soledad Brothers where Swank handed me the drumstix, Clone Defects a billion times, John Gillis solo '01, a rare Patrick Keeler-Tim Vulgar-Jack White jam session from some long-forgotten date in 2001 as well as my first-ever vocal performance, while on drums, doing "Stormy" by the Jesters of Newport.

So the Twos were on and the freaks came out. Within the first thirty seconds of the first song the overzealous security goon had kicked out Colin of the Frustrations for punk shit...you know, pogoing, slamming, whatever it is the kids are calling it these days. More than a few people were awkwardly hoisted over-head in an almost stationary crowd surf precariously trying to avoid the ever-present ceiling fan. This is the way and place that I like to see shows.

And apparently the owners have taken note. I've been told the Garden Bowl will start having more consistent free shows in their lounge. It's more likely to be shows that would usually be upstairs at the Stick and draw 50 people. So instead of constantly reliving that miserable prospect, bands will get paid a flat fee, people will get in for free, the club will rely on bigger bar receipts and in the end EVERYONE enjoys the evening so much more.

The Go did their thing upstairs at the Stick. I kinda prefer when Bobby's just singing. His guitar playing is nothing bad, but the guitar itself is so unpowerful and forgettable. I can't help but worry that the rest of the world will never truly understand or appreciate the genius of these guys. I truly hope they discover their place, because the world needs more bands with their skill and determination. Seeing them in bigger spaces leads me to wonder whether their better-suited as a 5-piece. However, when the crash into "Meet Me at the Movies" no one seems to care and for a brief moment it's as if everything is perfect.
