Music Bullets, 4-30-07

  • It's the Guster Week in Review! Open-minded Buffalo students, 7-footers, bound-and-gagged Branson pigs...good times had by all. Have I mentioned just how much I love the Guster Road Journal?
  • Shortlist Finalists announced. Among this group, it had better be Cat Power or Tom Waits.
  • Speaking of Tom Waits, here is a FANTASTIC list from Rolling Stone...Top 25 Most Underappreciated Artists. Not a big New York Dolls fan by any means, but it's nice to see the influence of Zevon and Roxy Music and Dinosaur Jr. recognized a little bit.
  • And here's a summary of last week's Coachella Festival. And photos.
  • Finally, I watched We Jam Econo: The Story of the Minutemen this weekend. Good stuff. I like that it just told the story that was there to be told. The Mike Watt interview clips were interesting and gripping, and the love with which musicians like Henry Rollins and Flea speak of the group and their music gets to you. I highly recommend it to all music nerds out there.
