TTHU: So Diego, WHAT’S ON YOUR IPOD?
D.M.: Well first of all I don’t have an iPod anymore because some thieving fuckers held me up at gunpoint, but this is what I’ve managed to cram onto the media card I have in my Blackberry.
TTHU: Yeah…er…sorry about that…coke is a nasty habit. Glad to see you had backup 🙂 Let’s get right to it!
D.M.: Angular mathy indie-rock with weird time signatures and keyboards. Pitchfork haaaaated this album, but fuck Pitchfork.
Doomriders: Darkness Comes Alive
D.M. I don’t know if it’s because of how many people migrate down from Boston to Brooklyn, but Doomriders hoodies are repped harder in Williamsburg than any other band. Weird.
D.M.: Total fucking gem. A british Disco-infused Doo Wop band from the mid ‘70s. “Sugar Baby Love” was the greatest song I heard in 2009.
D.M.: Irish music is some of the most depressing music on the planet. It’s all about wars and oppression and dying for no reason.
D.M.: I was born in the wrong England.
D.M.: Also British. Also Doo-Wop. Plus, I nominate “What you drinking? Rum or whiskey/ Won’t you have a double with me?” as the greatest opening two lines to a song ever.
