BLATANT TOADYING, NAME-DROPPING SUCK-UP....
While perusing a number of publications on the racks this past weekend, I came upon a henious interview conducted by mediocre filmmaker JIM JARMUSCH
with rock and roll group "The White Stripes"
magazine. It's got some of the worst band name-dropping toadyism you'll ever see from Jarmusch -- totally geared to impress the band, who naturally come off bored and unimpressed. I think the word count goes something like 75% to Jarmusch prattling on, 25% to the band -- and there's two
of them. "You know, some say that (such-and-such song of the White Stripes') sounds like the Velvet Underground
; me, I find it has more of a Young Marble Giants
vibe going on. Wouldn't you agree?". Response from band
: "Mmm, yeah, hmm...haven't thought about that...."
