I have lots of 'favourite bands in the world' and I'm prone to rash statements like "this is the best song ever"... I think everyone's the same. This weekend my favourite band in the world was Fleetwood Mac; I listened to Rumours three or four times, Mirage twice and Tango In The Night once. Tango In The Night's a minefield. My favourite 'favourite band in the world' is rather predictably the Beatles, although I haven't listened to them for about a year. Other regulars are Silver Jews, Times New Viking and today's favourite; Olivia Tremor Control.
Listening to them today got me thinking about All Tomorrow's Parties and the Pavement curated thing a few weeks ago. Holy shit, Pavement have some good taste in bands and some totally appalling taste. I'm pretty much sure Spiral Stairs is to blame for the latter... but anyways, an All Tomorrow's Parties curated by Olivia Tremor Control and the Elephant Six collective would be flawlessly awesome. Can someone make this happen please? I would buy my tickets now, rather than wait for some £20 ones the day before. Olivia Tremor Control, Apples In Stereo, Neutral Milk Hotel, Of Montreal (early stuff please), Chocolate USA... maybe Beechwood Sparks etc... swooooon.
