Re: the mire

Yes, they stole my spoof name! And they still don't review my records, ten years later, despite the fact that I am now the foremost jazz musician of modern times!

Re: the mire

That must hurt. A magazine dedicated to just the sort of obscure, avant-garde music you champion and wish to emulate, a magazine that reviews hundreds of records a year, but not a single mention of Momus. What is it with all this prickly defensiveness, Momus? Do you really consider Coming In A Girl's Mouth one of your better efforts?

Re: the mire

Yes, and what's more I subsidize the magazine by buying it and advertising in it! They're shooting themselves in the foot!

I find prickly defensiveness an amusing tone to adopt. People who were really hurt and defensive would probably do everything in their power to hide it.

Coming in a Girl's Mouth isn't a particular favourite of mine, but it does serve as a kind of litmus test. I often try to imagine other artists singing it, to hilarious effect. For instance, Radiohead. I can just imagine their version, I really can! Or LCD Soundsystem. Or Bon Iver. Or Sufjan Stevens.

Re: the mire

I have a strange feeling evil anonymous here is really Momus sleepwalking. Perhaps it's out of guilt for kicking that junkie around Alexanderplatz last week. No man can love himself he who does not love junkies and subway masturbators and that greasy fat guy who always sits next to you on the train.
