You may have heard that Richard Meltzer has a new album out, a collaboration with Mike Watt and Japanese avant-pop ensemble Cornelius, called Spielgusher. A few items of note here:
– a cool podcast interview with Meltzer at IconFetch.com (about Spielgusher, but also about Richard Meltzer and rock criticism generally).
– Mike Watt on his own site has posted “meltzer lyrics for planned minutemen collaboration” (the idea for Spielgusher dates back to ’85).
– More info on the project at Blurt Online, along with a soundclip.
– profile on Meltzer and Spielgusher (“Sixty-three tracks of scatology and skronk“) at the Guardian.
