New Pornographers

The New Pornographers are probably the best band of this decade, and easily the best Canadian band of all time. (Fuck you Rush, and the unicorn you rode in on. And fuck you, The Band -- when I watched 'The Last Waltz' I fast-forwarded through all the music. Why do you need two drummers to play slow, lame folksy jam-rock beats? You suck.)

Their debut release, 'Mass Romantic', is the happiest record I own. It takes that Carpenters-"I want to kiss children and play Candyland" happy vibe and waits till they turn 18 so they can *really* kiss them. Preferably with their pants off. You know, sex.

It kinda sucks that the New Pornographers are so good at writing songs, because they could easily be the best cover band in the entire world. Witness their note-perfect cover of 'Don't Bring Me Down' by the Electric. Light. ORCHESTRA.

After giving this band many many chances (thank, Mike, Kevin & John), I firmly believe that The New Pornographers are the Fleetowod Mac of our time.

That's second-hand news right there, Hillbilly Boy...

Note-perfect? The guitarist screws up the very first bend! I mean, really, Mike.

Middle age pornographers do it with kids!

Wait a minute, that didn't sound right.

The Cinemax Pronographers: Okay, but with the best parts cut out.
