Soooooo Disinterested...

That I don't even have the energy to write proper reviews of Ra Ra Riot or Japanese Motors.

Ra Ra Riot's The Rhumba Line kicks off with a stolen, okay maybe I should say borrowed riff from The Smiths song "Girlfriend in a Coma", by the second track they were copping a melody from The Clash's "Lost in the Supermarket" and it was right about there I stopped paying attention. I don't have any interest in a band who can't seem to right a riff of their own.

I made it through even less of Japanese Motors self titled release on Vice. The Heartbreakers, The Walkmen, Jonathan Richmond...again...nothing I haven't heard before and nothing I really LOVED in the first place.

Bahhh humbug. In fact I was apparently so disinterested I forgot to post this months ago.

This Black Tambourine video for Throw Aggie Off the Bridge will cheer me up.
