Books, Music, and Stuff
Geoffray Barbier's feature-length documentary on the Fleshtones, Pardon Us For Living But The Graveyard's Full, is now available to view online. I and many others (including Peter Buck, Dave Faulkner, M. Henry Jones, Miriam Linna, Steve Wynn, Handsome Dick Manitoba, and Andy Shernoff) hold forth. You can watch it here.
And in advance of my reading from AC/DC's Highway to Hell (along with Pitchfork's Scott Plagenhoef and Mark Richardson) at Quimby's in Chicago this Friday, the AV Club asked me to choose which song from Highway to Hell would fit on a mix-tape with a song each from Belle and Sebastian and the Flaming Lips. Yeah. Here's my answer (along with Scott's and Mark's).
UPDATE: photos of the Quimby's reading here and here.
