Coming Soon: “2008: What The Fuck Was Going On?”

Posted in Uncategorized by Andrew Earles on December 25, 2008

Being one of the 15,000 music writers chosen to chime in about 2008, I just turned in my Village Voice Pazz and Jop at the very last minute…I sure hope my efforts make a difference, thus causing the music media to, uh, HELLO!!! WAKE THE FUCK UP!!!! and start giving some attention to underrated & overlooked terminally-underground underdogs like The Gaslight Anthem, Ra Ra Riot, Vampire Weekend, Hot Chip, Of Montreal, David Byrne and Brian Eno, Metallica, Fleet Foxes, TV on the Radio, Kings of Leon, Black Kids, and Deerhunter. As per usual, the music press probably doesn’t have the balls to even touch this stuff. I also worry that my ballot might be dismissed by readers (or, shit, THE EDITORS!?!) on the grounds that my entries are “fake” or “too obscure.” We’ll see.  

Coming soon from this location: Read the title line.
