Crowd aggravation – Teenage Cool Kids

I was thinking yesterday listening to this album just how glad i am to have it in my life. I was happy listening to it, so much so that i would be content if it were to be only thing i could ever listen to again. It’s not much, an album made by friends because being in a band is the best idea, and i’m not sure exactly where and how it reaches me so, but me and it on a desert island and i would be ok with that. I guess i’m kind of on a desert island at the moment. This album made me feel better being here.

Self Abuse

Self abuse – Teenage Cool Kids

What ever happened to Teenage Cool Kids? I know they released another album that i still don’t own, but have they since ceased to exist? They’re just a band after all. That fragile being. Growing up or out of it, moving away from it, just losing interest in it. It takes a lot for a band to stay together. Maybe it’s on my end – what ever happened to me? I used to have a line to this stuff and now i just don’t know where to look, and i have no one to tell me. I’m happy for all i know to be all of Teenage Cool Kids that’s out there, but i can’t rest if it’s not.

Crowd aggravation – Teenage Cool Kids

There was a time not long ago when the majority of music introduced to me was through Lawrence and his distro, or his “have you heard _________?” questions, to which my answer was more often than not “No” but always the launching point to another great band to research and embrace completely. Teenage Cool Kids are probably my favourite band of all those i found through Lawrence’s suggestion. He had a knack for and such foresight in finding new bands, embarrassing me and my investigation skills with every reveal of another amazing one. I never knew his secret, his source for that influx of bands he brought to my attention our every meeting. I have a feeling it might have been through channels i feel too tormented to use, like myspace, or pitchfork, or those other, above-entry-level ones i’m oblivious to, so i should accept that i will stumble on everything belatedly as punishment for being such a prude. There are some people to whom i am so thankful.
