Some interesting names in the first issue of Drag City's literary magazine (Courtesy of Jordan D.). But the world needs Bill Callahan's poetry about as much as it needs a new Smog record. Rock stars get to be poets when poets get to have groupies (I'm thinking of my single associates here, and not myself. Though I am willing to be Eleni Sikelianos's platonic groupie) or, like, get paid lots of money for gigs. One man's indie rock is another man's Hades (wink, nudge, mon ami!...) But then again I have been listening more or less exlusively to Eurotrash techno and modern composers since 2003 or so.
