Default Are you guys blown away by the innovative interactivity of Oceania

I mean this whole media tour is really not anything like album releases that I've ever seen!

We have this record dropping in March. As a rule this band is bored of the traditional system of drop a record, play behind the record, same old song and dance. Around March you'll start seeing us again, we're not sure how exactly we'll promote the record but it'll be something extravagant.

They would be playing a new record in its entirety like many bands do anyway, not an album like in SY case came out in the last 80´s and could be considered pandering.

I hope he didn't say that, it's retarded as well as hypocritical. Playing full albums live is awesome, especially if they're awesome bands and awesome albums like SY playing DDN. I don't know what could possibly be bad about it. Pink Floyd did it all the time, and I bet Billy wouldn't criticise them for that. He'd probably come out and say "People think Thurston Moore is a better guitarist than David Gilmour?? I'll fucking piss on Sonic Youth!" sooner than criticising Pink Floyd.

I haven't been posting much lately because I've been too busy interacting with this Oceania thing. It's been a hell of a ride so far.

Was rockin' some Celestials today and I stopped to pick up these 3 21 year old Chinese girls on my way in to work. They commented right away how they were really into the new album.

I was shocked.

Just for the record: I fuckin hate this band pos-2007. Just want to make clear I do not love a band which is doing shits like this. I do not tell anyone I do love this guys, is too embarrassing, sorry Billy.

(And for the record too, I loved this band so much until 2007. Thank you Billy for what you gave me.)

Billy says you are a "a real piece of shit" and "one of the worst human beings". Sorry.

Zeitgeist was 1/5 and Oceania is 2/5. (1 is the lower)
It is enough of this silly band.

I agree wholly. As a matter of fact, I remember chuckling in 2010 when Billy was ragging on bands like Weezer and Sonic Youth playing their old albums in sequence, and then writing about how Roger Waters performing The Wall was the best thing he'd ever seen.
