  • RIP Alex Chilton

    If you don’t know Alex Chilton by name you likely know at least some of his work, and would probably do well to know more. He died yesterday in New Orleans while thousands of indie kids were descending upon Austin owing the life of their band to him et al in some way or another . . . whether they know it or not. I think most of them do these days, thank god.

    There is a lot of great music out there right now despite what sobbing record company execs and editors of once-irreverent-now-irrelevant music magazines say. Rejoice and thank Alex Chilton, but beware the wolf in sheep’s hairdo. Phonies yet abound.
