Most of the kids don’t know this, but Buddyhead has been around. Long before Pitchfork was giving snarky, bullshit reviews to “abstract” indie rock bands and Perez Hilton was drawing dicks and coke residue over paparazzi pictures of Hollywood starlets, two skinny dorks in LA named Aaron and Travis were giving snarky reviews to rock and roll records and calling everybody out on their shit. Everybody.
I’m not going to say that they were the first music blog, but they were the first music blog to do what all the music blogs do now.
Oh yeah, they had this record label too, they put out records for bands like The Icarus Line, Your Enemies Friends, Wires on Fire, 400 Blows, and a couple of killer compilations.
Anyways, the point is, their legendary gossip section went away some time ago, and I think its time they bring it back. They say that they can’t afford it, but Aaron is the guitarist in this band called Nine Inch Nails. I know they gave their record away for free, but he can afford it.
If you’re into it, leave a comment letting them know. Once I’ve built up a number of comments…I’ll be realistic here…20? I’ll let them know about it too.
I’m serious. Leave some comments.
