This is magic, that’s what.
I would have tapped that so hard if I had been old enough back then.
These two guys. Couldn’t ask for better bandmates. @napalmflesh and @_grey_wanderer_ #orderoftheowl here’s to many more shows and road trips!
Jeff Buckley’s lasting legacy is that voice, a divine power that he harnessed and whipped around like some superhero with a killer haircut. Yorke wasn’t the only one to imitate it; there’s an entire school of (mostly British) vocalists who owe their careers to Buckley, including but not limited to Chris Martin, Matthew Bellamy, Fran Healy, and that guy from Ours. Grace is a fine time capsule of Buckley’s tremendous singing ability, but beyond that, it’s a portrait of a well-rounded artist brimming with inspiration…
Ugh. Got to listen to this one tonight.
Over nearly two hours, WTJU veteran Aaron Margosis and Ian MacKaye spin some tunes and talk dischord history, straight edge, L.A.’s punk scene, Henry Rollins, Nazi skinheads, Fugazi’s record sales, getting courted by major labels and all sorts of subjects that would excite even a casual fan of MacKaye’s now-legendary bands and record label.
