You know, some people out there don’t respect the big pop idols like Bill “Babe Magnet” Orcutt. But here at TMT, we’re no chauvinists! We give artists the benefit of the doubt about that sorta thing, even if they seem on the surface to be pandering to the lowest common denominator like the handsome, winsome guitar-slinger Orcutt obviously does. I mean, heck, we’ve already been dutifully and unbiased-ly keeping you up to speed about Orcutt’s plans to release a new album, A History of Everyone, on September 30 via Editions Mego. And c’mon, let’s face it: a lot of other “indie” zines out there would have steered clear of covering such a potential shitstorm of overtly populist bullshit).
And damn, now we’re going to take our unparalleled benevolence even further and throw it out there that he’s playing more than a dozen tour dates this fall coinciding with the new album’s release! Seriously. No judgement. How? Nice? Are? We?
Hey, guess what, readers? I just totally SHIT my pants all over the TMT office.
“Does it stink?”
No. It doesn’t. Not at all.
