Dom: The Beatles moved out of Liverpool, but they weren’t like, “Oh, we’re a New York band.” Same thing goes for Zeppelin and Sabbath, they were from Birmingham. We’re from Worcester. A lot of bands say that they’re from Brooklyn because they’re located in Brooklyn, that’s not where they’re from, that’s not where the band’s from. I’m not necessarily from anywhere, but I’m more from Worcester than I am from Hadley.
He mentions this review in WoMag, which contains what is possibly the best phrase I’ve ever read in that magazine, viz. “some shmuck with an over-glorified Casio.” (The review itself is worth reading just for the comments.)
That hilarious review, of course, was in part a response to this rather funny Pitchfork interview in which Dom stated “I can’t say enough about Worcester, Massachusetts. It’s a utopia. … With the recent passage of this new bill, artists can do some things more freely now, like carry two grams of pot without any fines. And they actually pay us money for music equipment. If you’re an artist, you can fill out a form and they’ll help pay for rent and give you more money on your food stamps.”
In what could quite possibly be a quote befitting a city council candidate, he said, “We need a symbol that symbolizes what we need to do in America, and we need to fix it. And it’s going to take a mighty big wrench to fix this country, so I just got a big old 36-inch pipe wrench and colored it.”
(Big colored pipe wrenches could be the new Gary Rosen comb. Someone, make it so.)
He was a good looking man! I passed out fliers, John introduced himself, and Garrett took pictures. Skyler was in the bus eating lunch. I was told this is a very democratic area, but these were very friendly people, and one young man even stood to shake hands with John. How polite and respectful! Where are my single daughters?
junk science. just like the earth rotates. The sun rises and sets. theres no spinnig earth. the junk scientists have made the sheeple beleive the earth rotates to take God out of the equation.. You think God would have to have his earth spin. The bible is clear about the sun and so is common sense.
