Thanks for sharing that Liam. Loved this

But I played “Mistress” this year at one show, in Maine, because there was a guy in a wheelchair and he kept yelling out for it and that he’d waited 22 years to come see me – and I believed him, because he was in a wheelchair and it was my first time playing Portland, Maine. After the show, he wheeled himself up to me and asked for a hug and I gave him one and he would not let go. I mean, he would not let go. It just killed me. His name was Mike. Mike, it’s not my favourite song any more, but if I ever play “Mistress” again, it’ll be for you, because you’re the definition of strength and bravery and that hug made my fucking year.

There is a fine line between being honest and being an asshole and Mark seems to cross that line every now and again, but I would never question his sincerity.

Reading through this thread, it seems like the guy is preoccupied with where he is or isn't able to put his dick, which is bad enough in a 20-year-old frat boy, but substantially worse for a guy pushing 50.

So Australian right wing fuckhead Andrew Bolt has something to say about Mark.

I've never heard anything from Red House Painters, but this Red House Painters: Box Set | Album Reviews | Pitchfork makes it seem like the early albums are pretty essential listening.

Please hear lots of things from Red House Painters. They're every bit as good as Sun Kil Moon.

Well that's the thing - I'm not super high on SKM, so I'm hoping Red House Painters are better.

Well, Red House Painters were more of a band than Sun Kil Moon's solo project style. (I really like Songs For A Blue Guitar, which is basically a solo album, though.)

Here's a song for you.

The more I think about it the more I think "I Can't Live Without My Mother's Love" might be my favourite song of his. It's got beautiful, reflective guitar, then a lighter, even more beautiful guitar that comes in over the top towards the end of the song. Kozelek's vocals float effortlessly over the track, and though it follows the intensely autobiographical nature of the rest of Benji I think it's one of the few songs where the lines sit well together, where the lyrics actually work one after the other, like a more normally structured song (not to say the other songs don't work, they all do, I love the album dearly but there is a certain incongruousness to lines like "and I love the thunder of John Bonham's drums / but even more I liked No Quarter's low Fender Rhodes hum"). But it all comes back to Kozelek. Whenever I start to think that yeah, maybe he is a bit of an arsehole, I come back to this song. I honestly think it's the most powerful, the one where he lays himself the most bare. It's truly remarkable, this narrative where everything that's happened it his life is insignificant compared with the love he has for his mother, having that shoulder to rest on in your weakest moments.

Gustavo is currently breaking my heart.

If you wanna hear Kozelek fuck about with drum machines and synths, and then break your heart anyway, here's your place.

Yes, that song is incredible. Perils got overlooked.
