Due to a busy schedule and a stagnant music industry, it’s been tough for me to sustain the amazingly high standard of quality that Your Band Sucks has always strived for (and accomplished, of course). I’ve decided to publish Your Band Sucks only once a month instead of biweekly. Yes, this means half as many Your Band Sucks articles, but they’ll hopefully be twice as good as they otherwise would have been.
I’ll still be writing for you guys every other Wednesday, though: I’ll simply be replacing one Your Band Sucks per month with an AMDB (as I’ve done today). For those of you who think the AMDB sucks, I apologize. You’re wrong, and you’re ugly, but I apologize. I’ll also continue to do front page news updates every other week, as usual. I skipped ‘em last month because I had to move.
Also, you can read much more music writing by your ol’ pal Dr. David Thorpe, FOUR TIMES AS OFTEN, if you check out Boston’s Weekly Dig newspaper. My column, the Burn Unit, is now conveniently online for your perusal! If you like Your Band Sucks, read this also, since it’s the same thing, just more often and in a smaller format.
In other Your Band Sucks new, be sure to pick up Da Capo Press’s 2006 Best Music Writing anthology. You’ll get a big surprise.
Thanks for reading my bullshit all these years!
2 PM: Steven J. accidentally drops his vintage Trapper Keeper, revealing erotic drawings of the ‘bunny girls’ emoji. The room draws silent. Slowly, member after member opens his/her notebooks and tablets, revealing dozens of pages of bunny girl emoji fanart. The room votes 12-0 never to speak of this again.
He was ripped off for True Detective, now Thomas Ligotti is being asked to review Pizza Hut's new Hotdog Pizza Bites.
The Daily Dirt serves as a column for all Something Awful frontpage writers to write about, well, whatever they feel like putting into the Daily Dirt!
