Just saw that tweet for the first time via Hot Chip while looking for info on Hot Chip's new album. As you know, Lana Del Rey played SNL this past weekend (Hipster Runoff has since renamed his website in her honor). Bon Iver will hopefully do better on February 4th. Maybe LCD Soundsystem will get to play SNL if they ever reunite. For now we can make due by watching them in the documentary about their last show ever.

As mentioned, Al Doyle's new band New Build have two shows coming up at Mercury Lounge, one of which is on AmEx presale now (the other is sold out).

If LDR upset Fatty Arbuckle that much, well then consider me LDR's biggest fan!

GO LANA!

James Murphy is essentially a bear and yes, extremely fuckable.

Lana Del Rey on the other hand... just a gross whore.

Retiring from the music biz means you don't get a right to complain, Mr. Murph. Sorry people were too slow to catch on, but maybe if you tucked in your junk, lost 50 lbs and injected collagen in your lips you would've had a fighting chance.

Bands that deserve to have played SNL at least once:

The Flaming Lips
LCD Soundsystem
Animal Collective
The National
Interpol
The Decemberists
The Hold Steady
Deerhunter


Posted by Anonymous | January 18, 2012 3:45 PM

That's because LCD Soundsystem sucked.

Ugh, 3:45, just close this tab on your browser and go back to Pitchfork already.

Posted by Anonymous | January 18, 2012 3:49 PM

"Bands that deserve to have played SNL at least once:"

The Flaming Lips - yes, back when they were good, and relevant
LCD Soundsystem - hahahaha ... NOT
Animal Collective - I could see that
The National - c'mon, you're going to make the audience sit through unfunny comedy to then have to listen to unmusical music? You are cruel
Interpol - maybe 10 years ago. they are also irrelevant now
The Decemberists - I'm surprised they have not played SNL, we all know how much hipsters love them (and the cast for the last 10 years have been dork-borderline-hipsters)
The Hold Steady - who?
Deerhunter - if SNL was on local access cable Williamsburg, that would be a slam dunk; in the real world no one cares about any of the deer bands

Posted by Anonymous | January 18, 2012 3:54 PM

3:49.... Are you saying NONE of those bands deserve to play SNL?

Posted by Anonymous | January 18, 2012 3:55 PM

3:54.... When I said "at least once," I meant by now.

LCD, Interpol and The Hold Steady all had their time when enough people liked them and they were "relevant" enough.

The Flaming Lips, Animal Collective and The National are all still "relevant" and have had high chart placements in the last few years.

Maybe Deerhunter is a stretch, but it'd still be cool.

Posted by Anonymous | January 18, 2012 4:04 PM

You want to talk about who is "relevant" enough to play SNL? When was the last time SNL itself was "relevant?"

Is it some kind of a great achievement to play that shitty sketch comedy show that airs at midnight on Saturday on the lowest-rated network? I can't even name 3 cast members on that shitshow anymore.

Posted by Anonymous | January 18, 2012 4:08 PM

4:08.... No, it's not a great achievement, but for the most part, for the last few years the saving grace of SNL has been its musical guests.

Plus, funny or not, people still watch it.

Posted by Anonymous | January 18, 2012 4:12 PM

@3:45 - that list is just STUPID! No bands 'deserve' anything! The Hold Steady?? Come on man!

Posted by Anonymous | January 18, 2012 4:12 PM

3:48 - Yes, it most certainly is a great achievement! Are you actually questioning otherwise?? Are you really that f--king dumb? Are you?? ARE YOU??!!

Posted by Anonymous | January 18, 2012 4:14 PM

4:12.... You're right. A talentless plastic-surgery disaster with a modeling contract and two shows under her belt deserves more than a band that's traveled the country a million times over in a shitty van before anyone ever gave them a dime, all the while producing music that was at least listenable.

Better yet...Malkmus and the Jicks...I'm speaking for the rest of the country not the "trend setting" "cliques" of Manhattan...

Has Glen Campbell played SNL? If he did, I'll bet The Edge was there.

Didn't Fatty Arbuckle once bang a girl to death? You know that's from memory, since Wikipedia is down today.

Posted by Anonymous | January 18, 2012 9:58 PM

I really don't get what the big deal about this is. SNL sucks, and has sucked for decades, but my girlfriend tapes it and makes me watch it with her.

All season, they've trotted out an embarrassing array of Pitchfork/BV-approved, ultra-trendy acts who've all been absolutely horrendous. I really don't see how this woman with bizarre lip implants was any worse than Foster the People, Florence and the Machine, Robyn, or even fucking Radiohead. They were all terrible.

Posted by Anonymous | January 18, 2012 9:59 PM

I always thought of LCD Soundsystem as a way to describe the music, like an LCD TV, but the music in itself is electro'ed out, LCD'd if you will. LCD Soundsystem. Phenomenally talented band.

Serious question, who the fuck is Lana Del Ray, and why is she getting so much attention? She's kinda pretty, but aside from that how is she different than ANY overly emotional bland "indie rocker"? Like, really? I'm just confused, what makes her stand out?

Posted by Stephen Whitfield | January 18, 2012 10:02 PM

9:58, a young lady died at a party at fatty's house - the rumor became that he like raped her with a coke bottle, it ruined his career - the truth was that the girl had had like 12 abortions, drank a lot, did drugs etc, and i think just had an abortion and it was done wrong - going by memory from reading his wiki page a few weeks ago

Posted by hipster jesus | January 19, 2012 1:50 AM

1:50: No, I don't. I hate the show and I'm already trying to get out of watching it in the first place. No offense.

I did, however, have a college roommate who had a complete collection of every episode of Dr. Who on Beta tape (this was around '96, and I thought it was very strange) who may want be your friend.

I can totally hook you guys up.

Agreed 9:59. Pretty much any band (LDR included) > Foster the People

Posted by Anonymous | January 19, 2012 10:53 AM

I just like that LDR is infamous now, in a bad way. The talent bookers at SNL are probably going to rethink booking certain bands to avoid a "Lana Del Rey situation".

Posted by Anonymous | January 19, 2012 12:14 PM

Not sure what in the world is wrong with anyone criticizing Lana. She has great voice and great songs. Why is she getting so much shit over trying to make something of her self? When anyone else has done what she has achieved we encourage and celebrate their success. Listen to her songs before passing any judgment and if you don’t like her music keep your mouth shut and hands to your self

Posted by aamir anwar | January 23, 2012 9:06 AM

florence and the machine was terrible? Really? Jesus, you are a fucking retard. She killled it last time around. Perfectly on pitch, sang with so much emotion, and the production value was phenomenal. Go back to pretending how you love Joy Division.
