I like the crowds and the really big shows, people touching people that they really don't know
My iPod is slowly going insane. This morning on my train commute 30 seconds of a Hold Steady song was interjected into a Nico Muhly song. This is the 3rd time its happened, however the 1st 2 time were around a year ago and occurred during a song by Our Lady of the Flowers, aka Nicholas Moore. Nicholas is a friend of mine who started making ambient/drone/noise music when he moved to Colorado. After some prodding he sent me 5 discs of circuit bent madness. None of the tracks were named, and at the time I thought he sampled the Hold Steady song, and afterword I couldn't find it. I thought it was interesting song, 7 or 8 minutes of drone abruptly cutting to Craig Finn shouting "I like the crowds and the really big shows, People touching people that they really don't know". The irony kinda made sense. But this morning it happened again, same Hold Steady sample interjected into a different song. What the hell?
