Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills


It's already time to upload another album of mine to CDBaby. Damn. The months do go by fast, don't they? Don't know which one I'll choose.

"I don’t search for music at all, I don’t try to find new things, I almost try and avoid new things. Every once in a while I’ll stumble across a new band that I like for some reason...but for the most part I listen to...things I liked when I was a kid. Recently I was listening to my own stuff, because I was trying to write songs, so I kind of immersed myself into my own thing and tried to work on stuff all day long. So I don’t really listen to music very religiously otherwise. I watch TV more than I’ll listen to music. My wife doesn't really like music in the background, she likes to focus on it. We don’t cook with music in the background, and that’s how it’s been for 25 years, there’s no music playing in the background, unless I’m with my friends, but usually I’d rather be watching basketball or working on my own material." - Doug Martsch

Iggy Pop was born on this day in 1947. Yeah. James Osterberg is 68.
