'Nostalgia band' is a better description.

Yeah, but we're not talking about you.
Hell, you didn't go to the last tour when hundreds of thousands did.
You're a Who fan anomaly.

Yeah, but they'll fuck up a whole bunch of shit in the mean time.
We chase bears out, up here.

It ain't no light-hat.
It's just a light.
No hat.
Just a....light.....on a strap.

Um, no he didn't.
"Mr. Subject Changer" <applause!>, he listed those songs as songs by the
Kinks that he felt were also "staples in Rock", along with Lola, and YRGM.
No mention of the radio.
No mention of hearing The Kinks on the radio more than The Who.

Again, does anyone hear the Kinks on the radio more than The Who?


<that's getting old, isn't it?>

>So what current music DO you like?

I honestly don't really like any current stuff.
I'm listening.

I like Cake.
I dig some Outkast.

> Wanna talk about

Not really.  They're 'ok', in a been there, done that kind of way.
First time I heard them on that ipod commercial, I thought they were
interesting, in a retro kind of way.
I like that song 'Get out of here'.

I haven't heard a new band in a long while that wasn't a friggin' flash in
the pan.
I'm not motivated to dig into them.

>, The Darkness, the new Vines, what?

Seeing how you make your living selling music, you have a financial
incentive to dig into them.
I don't.

I never mentioned 'new music' when I made the silly 'stuck in the past'
I was joking, because of your Kinks fandom that you obviously have a very
strong emotional link to.
Obviously, you have to know all music.  The past and the present.
That wasn't the point, Mr. Subject Changer <Applause!>.

>I'd rather hear a new Radiohead, personally. Course

But, Radiohead?

Dating yourself.
