Oh it's an embarassment of riches around here right now. Chart and Spin both arrived yesterday and on Friday I bought the NME which I haven't even glanced at yet. It's a very good thing I'm not working tomorrow, as I've got a pile o' good reading to do.
And from the quick glances I did take, I see that Neko Case is all over these mags, and she was even featured full front-page of the Entertainment section of the Calgary Herald today. Well that's because her new cd Fox Confessor Brings the Flood was released today, of course. (Note to self: stop at cd store tomorrow)
Jerry is still mad at her for ditching the New Pornographers gig here a couple of weeks ago, but when you are a crazy-busy indie babe, you can't do everything. And when everybody wants you, sometimes someone is going to be disappointed.
He's also all worried that with all the exposure that Neko is suddenly receiving, she is going to be spoiled somehow, not be his little secret anymore, I guess. I disagree, more recognition will not ruin Neko Case. It's not like she's going to suddenly lose all her talent and become Nickelback or the Killers or anything like that.
I'll leave you with a couple of quips that I did happen upon during a fast flip through my reading material (and bear in mind that I haven't even cracked open NME yet, which is usually the most outrageous of the bunch):
Pink Mountaintops: "like the Brian Jonestown Massacre minus the schizophrenia" (Spin)
" I see Bry's underpants" (ie Bry Webb - Constantines) - chartattack.com/gallery/20020325-threegut.cfm (Chart) - I am going to go check that one out right now!
