exclusive megahex bookplate for london’s best comic shop, GOSH!

Actually have a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen with one of these GOSH! bookplates, just because I happened to be record shopping in Berwick Street the day it came out. Would love to have this one. The pile of UK comedy DVDs is a particularly great touch. Wonder if they watch Fresh Meat.

Slint, very recently. Some of those reformed bands just lap up the automatically-given adoration. These guys had to earn it. And earn it they did! Apologies for the terrible pictures and the stand-in bass player’s session-metal hair.

I dunno, I’ve always thought Matt Jencik’s hair was pretty dreamy (he’s way more than a stand-in, too - dudelar is a regular part of the band at this point).

Also, if you’re not familiar with Implodes (http://implodes.blogspot.com), you should be.

Best to remember that before Jencik, Slint had Todd Cook and his metallic locks on board. What’s more, Pajo’s metal pull has always played a role in this band.

Can’t really compete with this level of Slint appreciation as I’ve only ever been a semi-fan. If I was trying to make any kind of serious point, it was that Slint always seemed like a weird, impenetrable gang, snickering in its own secret language. In that context, any additional or replacement musician is going to seem like an interloper of sorts.

Anyway, anyone who had doubts at the start of the show had probably put them aside by the end. I certainly had.
