q and also a :: Headless Elvis
Headless Elvis sent us these answers to our questions in this next installment of q and also a.
q: What is the last song you (really) heard?
peter: Thinning by Snail Mail – that whole EP is so great.
conor: Greyland by Tiny Hazard. That entire album, actually, is incredible
matt: Lost in The Flood by Bruce Springsteen. Good song with good sounds and good words.
q: What is the first album you remember purchasing?
p: Hard to know for sure but I think it was the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Fever to Tell.
c: it’s so vague… but probably Room on Fire by The Strokes.
m: I got Rush’s first album a million years ago. They were the ugliest looking people I had ever seen at that point in my life (based on cd booklet pictures).
q: Is there an album you wished you knew about when you were younger?
p: Buy by James Chance and The Contortions. It’s free jazz punk so I can always use more of that in my life.
c: A Place to Bury Strangers’ debut. I was 12…but I think it definitely would have opened me up to much more.
q: What is the last album that you purchased?
p: I got both Rock’n Hanukah and The Best of Blondie on cassette at the Thrift Store for like 50 cents. It was a pretty good deal.
c: I think I got Pissed Jeans’ first album for $1 at a record fair a few months back.
m: Probably something somewhere for a dollar.
p: A Place To Bury Stranger at Aviv last October was the most sensory overload I have ever experienced in a show. It started with their usual strobes and smoke and ended in the back of the venue with lasers and a weird synth noise set. I left that show unable to speak for the rest of night. Thick also played that night and they were great as usual.
c: Peter and I actually took a trip to Baltimore to catch Dope Body before they broke up. Guerilla Toss opened for that one. The energy was wild.
m: Tie between Neil Young + Wilco opening and Pavement + Thee Oh Sees opening.
q: What should we know about “BADE”?
headless elvis: It’s 3:42 seconds long, it’s free, and you can’t dance to it!
