”Well, I’m jaded. I’ve faced every situation for many years with a certain naivete and innocence. But I’ve somehow become a cynic. Cynicism is a good thing to have on the outside, but it’s a terrible thing to have on the inside. All I ever wanted, ever, was to make rock music. Whether it was in the back of a Camaro smoking pot and listening to Journey with some guy who was trying to make out with me, or whether it was the first time I heard the Pretenders. Fuck, Chrissie Hynde really saved me, you know, because she manifested it. She was a pragmatist. Pragmatism is what makes a good songwriter. Pragmatism or drugs. And drug-influenced songs are great, I agree. But I write songs that are clean. Songs that come from here.” Love slugs her heart.
This little "Live in the Lab" thing Tanya Donelly just did for RadioBDC is the most wonderful thing to watch/listen to now that it’s somehow already getting dark at like four in the afternoon. She sings “Red” by Belly and “Acrobat,” plus a bunch of new songs that are gorgeous. And she ends with the song I wrote about in the intro to my interview with her, so that’s pretty lovely too.
I might get bangs
