“Swimsuit Issue” is one to a rather loathsome former Geffen employee; “The Ineffable Me” is similar in subject. “Kool Thing” was a Take That! directed at LL Cool J (of all people), apparently prompted by an interview Kim Gordon had with him. For those who were wondering, Robert Christgau and Thurston Moore have since sorted out their differences and made up. Christgau even gave A Thousand Leaves an A+, his highest rating. Then there’s their “cover” of Yoko Ono’s “Voice Piece For Soprano”, which is just the newborn Coco Gordon Moore mewling for a few seconds. This could also be considered Affectionate Parody; Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore would later collaborate with Yoko Ono on the album Yokokimthurston, and Moore called one of his solo songs “Ono Soul” as a Shout Out. Two First Names: Kim Gordon and Steve Shelley. Lee Ranaldo arguably applies, as the given name is pronounced the same, but spelled “Renaldo”. Vocal Tag Team: Aside from a few exceptions, the vocals tend to be done by whoever wrote the lyrics, giving the band three different lead singers. Who Names Their Kid “Dude”?: Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers loved to mock Thurston for this, saying at one point “Did you have an actual mom?”. Thurston and Kim also may possibly qualify, since they named their daughter Coco Hayley Gordon Moore. Also, the band (and their fans) have an idiosyncratic habit of always writing “yr” instead of “your”. Yr Cheating Heart: Moore had an affair, the discovery of which ended his marriage to Gordon and the band itself.
Two reunions happened earlier this year that no one in the punk and hardcore community thought they would ever see. First was El Paso, Texas post hardcore hero’s At The Drive In coming off an 11 year hiatus, then suddenly Swedish band Refused announced the end of their 14 year silence. Much like another reunited band, Pulp, the last time Refused played the United States was in 1998 and it would be their final show, which was broken up by police at a basement party in Alexandria, Virginia. Now, recharged, reloaded and reunited, Refused played New York City for surprisingly the very first time in the first of two sold out concerts at Terminal 5. in 1996 to support Snapcase and we grew up on New York City Hardcore bands like Sick Of It All, Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today, and Agnostic Front. So playing NYC was a big deal for us, but when we came here we played Long Island. So tonight is history,” Refused front man Dennis Lyxzen told the audience halfway through the bands set. It was at that moment that the crowd realized that they were not just witnessing a band who they may or may not have ever seen or thought they would ever see, but they were witnessing a piece of history. Refused, much like At The Drive In, broke up far too early in their career. Just as they were peaking everyone’s attention, they called it quits http://jmorrissey.com/their-macabre-details-were-pored-over-by-news-readers-and/, so these reunion shows are far more special than anyone could imagine. Playing a majority of songs off their seminal final record, The Shape of Punk to Come, and being six shows into this reunion tour, it was as if Refused never left us. Musically the band sounded better than they ever did and playing to some of the largest audiences of their career, they had the power to reach out to everyone in the room like a band playing one of the world’s largest stadiums.
