What Did You Kill?

Now, I've never been a huge fan of Deerhoof, aside from maybe the song "Milkman". I just don't get it. "Deerhoof hearts Radiohead" , and I'm pretty sure Radiohead likes Deerhoof, but I just don't get it, for the most part.

I do, however, really enjoy their cover of The Beatles' "The Continuing Story of Bungalo Bill." I really don't know why. I think Deerhoof does an even better job than The Beatles of conveying the zany safari story embedded in the lyrics, along with the sick juxtaposition of killing things and singing children. Satomi Matsuzaki's voice is perfect.

What do you think?

omg i didnt kno that deerhoof <3's radiohead! omg

In any case, I agree --Deerhoof has never really sold me on their overall sound. I am, however, obsessed with Satomi Matsuzaki’s voice. I think I like Portishead for similar reasons (Beth Gibbons...*goosebumps*), but I like their overall sound much more. So yeah, I'm looking forward to listening to the track you posted.

In summary, I think we can all agree that Thom Yorke and Satomi Matsuzaki would have beautiful, beautiful children.

On a different note, what is this fall's hippest look? How am I supposed to show up at Dartmouth for my senior year looking fabulous if you don't inform me of these things??

(I hope you realize that I fully intend to use this blog as my primary source of all information (replacing all of the other blogs I usually read).)

Anyway, xoxoxoxoxo!!! Muah! :*

I remember waking up to "Milk Man" one morning off my iPod. Before I was even really conscious I was head-banging when the electric guitar comes in.
