I’ve been listening to a lot of Slint lately. I read the 33.3 about Spiderland and it kind of blew me away. I was way late getting into them. I think the first time I listened to that album was less than ten years ago. It got me thinking, how cool must you feel if you were one of the people who got to see them live back in the day? If I had seen Slint play back then I would rub it in everyone’s face at every available opportunity. I would feel way holier than thou! I would be cutting in front of people at the grocery store like “Did you see Slint in ’89?!? Huh??? Didn’t think so! *spits at their feet”

It happens to me all the time; I meet people who were there at the beginning of (insert massively legendary band here). I don’t have that. I don’t even think I’ve ever bought an album by an important band when they were just starting out. Maybe that’s why I do what I do now. I want to get in on the ground floor of something big! Who knows, maybe one of the bands in this top ten will end up being super important someday. Then I can gloat “I was there first! I said they were great in the beginning! What? Fuck me? No fuck you! What? You saw Slint? FUCK!”

Yeah. Anyways, check out the SCRAP HEAP and send me an email about how you were into a really important band before everyone else was.

Bye.
