No Rock and Roll Fun

This video of Sleater-Kinney just came across my radar.


One More Hour 1998

Sleater-Kinney performing “One More Hour” back in ’98.

Sleater-Kinney playing “Sympathy” at Coachella in 2006. One of the best live versions I’ve found.



While I’m on the subject of Sleater-Kinney, or rather the band members, Carrie Brownstein’s side project Portlandia is airing on IFC. And I just stumbled on her theme song for the show here.


Many things in dissertation land turned from being idle projects and projections of future goals to actual projects with very real deadlines. Large, looming deadlines with vocabularies stunning for the variety of four letter words they’re yelling at me. I realize that in the long run, this is all a good thing and all part of the process. Nevertheless, I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. So, I figure I’d turn, as I usually do, to Sleater-Kinney for help. Given the recent album, I actually turned to Corin Tucker, but the three will always go together for me given how often I turn to their albums. (That said, I can’t wait for Wild Flag to release their 7″).

Anyway, here’s a song that’s been on my mind today and a review of 1000 Years from NPR.
