Oh I can't freakin' help it:

I'm gonna try for an uptown girl
She's been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she's looking for a downtown man
That's what I am

Yeah, step one is being informed. I just feel pulled to this kind of struggle. The struggle could have been against England way back in the day. It could have been the civil-rights struggle. There have always been oppressive governmental systems but there’s a new form of that happening now and people need to step up. But to go back to your question about how I go about what I do: My mission is the same as it’s been from day one, which is to try to make something that has artistic value and bring it to the mainstream. Nothing about that has changed. I strive to build a world where the Velvet Underground would be more popular than the Rolling Stones. Or where Ariel Pink is as popular as Ed Sheeran.

fun fact: julian casablancas is thirty-nine earth years old

I don’t blame corporations for anything. I blame the laws. It’s like if there were no laws against murder and then there were roving pirate-gangs of murderers, I wouldn’t say the problem is the pirate-gangs, I would say the problem is the lack of laws. The mystery to me is that the business world somehow is allowed to be a lawless place where decisions are made that destroy people’s lives, but if you did those things person-to-person you’d be put in jail.

rly makes u think, if only there was some explanation for a legal system which allows corporations to act like roving pirate gangs

in a way i guess it's kinda sweet that julian is unleashing these banal, vaguely confused takes on the workings of the world like he's moses bopping down mt sinai to lay some real shit on us sinners

in another, more accurate way: god what a dumbass

"He didn't have hits" is p close to accurate, tbf, assuming that refers to singles.

to be equally fair, you're also not confidently trotting out misunderstandings of jimi hendrix's career in support of a maturing worldview which would seem painfully callow to people half your age

a shame Casablancas has such faith in capitalism, otherwise he might find a way to accept his favorite artists not as commercially succesful as others

anyway since "art is objective" what does it even matter

That interview scans as either the last one he did after a weekend of hundreds of them, or the first one he did before he's even had a cup of coffee. What are Bobby Gillespie interviews like?

(The Other) J.D. (J.D.), Tuesday, 13 March 2018 20:55 (nine months ago) Permalink

otm. for me that would be a nightmare. because you can't just have more popularity free of any real world impacts of that success. and that'll be that. the band would be different. the music would be different. it would no longer be the band we know.

does this mean there is new material? does it suck? there would have to enough new material to support a popular (touring) band for 3 decades. we could say the members cannibalized this universe's solo material for VU albums but there is a possibility they won't be writing any of the same songs our VU members have written. would we not have any Lou Reed/John Cale/Nico solo albums? or just less of them? does this mean Lou Reed never makes a "Transformer" solo album, recording "Perfect Day" together with David Bowie? being in a big successful band is physically and mentally exhausting. their material and performance in general may lack the wiry energy we know and love.

what if Mo Tucker/Nico/John Cale/Lou Reed leaves the band anyways and you have the post-Lou Reed Velvet Underground being the one everyone loves? and you are the jerk saying only their first 4 albums were good, that would be quite ironic. i wonder if in that universe there is a Julian saying the exact same thing he said in this one.

he meant to say he wants to live in a world where Ed Sheeran is about as popular as Ariel Pink

I really can't believe purportedly intelligent men -- always men -- over thirty still have this implicit disdain over phantom popular forces that kept this or that favorite band from triumphing. Unless you're Reed, Chilton, or Pink, who the hell cares?

morning wood truancy (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 13 March 2018 22:58 (nine months ago) Permalink

Earth-2 Julian never started a band, b/c he was too busy going to VU stadium concerts and tracking down elusive mint copies of the Stones' (only) four albums.

morning wood truancy (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 13 March 2018 22:59 (nine months ago) Permalink

yeah, alfred otm, also VU is not in any need of attention

I guess if you look at it very idealistically it is conceivable that there are currently overlooked artists whose style could be hugely influential in a way that would push popular music towards a completely new sound

if so, it's probably not Ariel Pink

Bobby is more a performance eejit at times. Like back in his "Bomb the Pentagon" days, he'd just as likely to eventually say ".. Obviously not really!"

Whereas J is a more sincere kinda dude..
