Cause you drove a Hyundai to get here, I drove an 80K BMW, that's my name!
This speech is America in seven minutes.
This is also another tip for attendees of the North Park Music Thing/Conference: Life is exactly like this! If you don't like it- don't get involved in the music business. There's a reason they don't call it the music hanging-out-with-buddies. Indie rock kids? Hipsters? Please. They're soft. Not tough. They get killed in the music business because the music business is filled with sharks. With piranhas. The music industry is like cannibalism mixed with piracy. Music industry professionals freebase the bones of Central Asian mummies to gain evil wisdom.
Do you know how many babies have to be eaten for Miley Cyrus to earn $25 Million in a year? Do you know how many people the producers of American Idol have murdered every year in stone cold blood?
The music business is dark things my friend. Mysteries of the Pyramid's dark.
Dedicated to classics and hits.

The "PACA" region of France: Provence-Alpes-Cote D'Azur
la station radar (myspace) is a "small label" as they say on Stereogum from France- their myspace profile says that they are from "PACA" which is an acronym for "Provence-Alpes-Cote D'Azur," all though I suppose that could be the Parisian equivalent of a Brooklynite putting "Alabama" instead of "New York." They also have an adorably professional website.
They seem to have a distribution deal w/ Family Time Music, though I very much think both parties would strenuously object to such phraseology. Not much to say yet though I might order their Pink Priest release but when they actually drop an Ancient Crux LP in Europe I will be paying attention for sure.
Amazingly enough No Pain in Pop hasn't blogged about La Station Radar. Neither has Sex is Disgusting. Can't wait to hear the Ancient Crux LP. They're also doing a release of Norse Horse/Ancient Crux split 7" which should be rad.
They have a bunch of cdrs out. I wonder what they're about b/c I don't know any of the bands.
