Carducci plugs the LAFMS

Taken from Joe Carducci's blog, "The New Vulgate: a new low in topical enlightenment". Carduccis is the author of "Rock and the Pop Narcotic" and "Enter Naomi", two must read books on music:

"The Wire's new issue includes a feature on the L.A.F.M.S. -- a group of groups and artists who tend to be ignored for all their ambition and their too-early recording and releasing of records for the usual wrongo history-of temporal narratives. If they’d been in NYC it would’ve been as if some kind of Beefheartian no-wave predated punk; and if they’d been in London it would’ve been as if Pub rock had been made up instead of bands like The Desperate Bicycles or Etron fou Le Loublan. This article and the show at Beaconsfield won’t dent history’s chrome-dome though."
