Title: Elijah quotes about music.
Post by: ladollyvita on March 25, 2004, 10:15:40 am

I thought it would be good to have a thread with quotes/articles where Elijah talks about music.... I know I love reading them. So post any you know of!

Some of my favourites:

Wood is obsessed with music. He is gracious in answering questions, but he's much more excited talking about Strokes B sides. His favorite band is the Smashing Pumpkins, and he talks about how happy he was, recently, when he went to see Billy Corgan's new group, Zwan, and fell into conversation with a rabble of other Pumpkins obsessives. "Talking about rare CDs and bootlegs that we owned, a very geeky conversation," he gleefully reports.
One afternoon, we go to Los Angeles' huge new record store, Amoeba. Wood works his way through the racks, raving about the Hives, Andy Votel, Buffalo Daughter, the Sea and Cake, Beulah, Broadcast and, incongruously, Heart's "Dreamboat Annie" - and then a man approaches. It is his friend Ben, who works here.
"Whassup?" screams Wood, and they fall into a rambunctious combination of hugging and wrestling in which Ben lifts Wood off the ground. "You've had a big f*cking month - congratulations," Ben says, and they're off, debating whether Amelie is better than The Royal Tenenbaums (Ben's view) or vice versa (Wood's view) and discussing the brilliance of the masturbation shot in Mulholland Drive. Ben ushers him to the DVD section, where Wood gets the Twin Peaks TV pilot, and they arrange for Ben to come over and watch it. Before leaving the store, Wood looks through the Smashing Pumpkins section, knowing that there can be nothing here he does not already have, but that's what you do with your favorite artist.
"Always," he says. "Always. It's silly."

-------------------

I got into this [Black Sabbath] during my mid-'90s metal stage. There is absolutely no correlation between this and the current crop of nu-metal, which, if you ask me, can get f*cked. I hate all that shit: Limp Bizkit and Disturbed can go to hell. It's not rock at all, and if it is, then it's not good rock. the only band that comes close is maybe Queens Of The Stone Age. The others suck.

;D ;D

I remember reading that article a couple years ago. I don't remember exactly what I was thinking, I just remember thinking weird things, like how I thought Zwan was a hysterical name for a band.

I always look through the Smashing Pumpkins section too, but it's always the same (at HMV). It's always just a combination of Siamese Dream, Pisces Iscariot, MCIS, Adore, Machina, Rotten Apples (without Judas O), Greatest Hits VHS/DVD, Earphoria and/or Vieuphoria. There's never been anything besides that, except about a year and a half ago they had Rotten Apples with Judas O, only I didn't buy it, because I didn't have enough money with me at the time, but now I have a burnt copy from Snail/Nicola. I do want the actual thing, though. I'll find it eventually.

I don't understand why they don't have Gish. So far Gish is the only thing I've ever convinced my parents to let me buy online. :P

Anyway, uh oh, I'm going way off again, aren't I?

your allowed to ramble on about the pumpkins. ;)

But its the same here. I always have a quick flick through the Pumpkins section, just on the off-chance that there's some dynamite imports i dont have. pah. never happens. Independent record stores are great for bootlegs though!
