The Cloud Cult fanclub (cult), 2005 lists & tickets
Members of the Cloud Cult fanclub (also known as the CCC) are: Pitchfork writer Marc Hogan, Jeff from Heartonastick, Jeff from Central Village, and myself. Jeff, Jeff & Marc don't actually know about the club because I created it without telling them (now the'll know though). Membership was based on love for 2005's Advice From the Happy Hippopotamus.
Marc Hogan, reviewer of AFTHH for Pitchfork, was the only critic to vote for the album in the 2005 Jazz and Pop. Blogger Jeff from Central Village named it his favorite album of 5765. Jeff Heartonastick himself was the only other blog that listed Cloud Cult as 'top 10' in Heartonastick's 2005 Bloggregate. I never made a list, but Cloud Cult's lack of representation almost motivated me to. Marc gets bonus points for using (three of my faves) Cloud Cult, Arcade Fire and Antony & The Johnsons in the same sentence in his recent Pitchfork feature.
Let me know if you think you should be a member of this non-exclusive cult-club. Tickets are on sale for Cloud Cult's upcoming NYC show. Check out all their tour dates.
