I love Fred Armisen when he delves into the rock and roll of things but I always wonder if Fred is not really a fascist in reverse, a sort of anti-Colbert. I know he pokes fun at all things alternative and cool (Portlandia, etc), but it's hard to read his earnestness. Is he really making fun or really meaning it while hes making fun of it. Maybe there lies his comic genius, in leaving one guessing ...

Im sure they will be a great addition to the Experience Music Project Museum, alongside Jimmy Hendrix.

Every time i go to Decibel, I always stayed in one of the hotels close to the Space Needle, just to be close to that store and go back and forth with records. It was truly a great place to buy music related items as well. And also it was a place that you could find the music from our label Static Discos. Is Wall of Sound still open?

They probably figured out they needed a "The Knife" like band in their roster, it makes economic sense. I like the video, though, I'm a sucker for cosmic triangles and floating foxes from space.

Id also recommend The Latin Playboys (Los Playboys Latinos), which is a couple of Los Lobos (The Wolves) members with producer extraordinaire Tchad Blake (Tchad Blake).

Las Panteras is The Panthers. Los Lobos is The Wolves. Los Lonely Boys is los Chicos Solitarios.

If there is any justice in this God forsaken world, then Dave Segal should succeed him ASAP!
