Interpol, Again

I watched the "Late, Late Show" Wednesday night because the musical guest was Interpol. Man, were they awesome. Austere but insistent. They sound a bit like Joy Division crossed with Television, with a splash of "Rescue"-era Echo and the Bunnymen. Where Joy Division confronted you with alienation, revelling in its harshness, Interpol embrace you with it, share it and transmute it into majestic grandeur. A smokin' performance.

Blogging will be light or not at all today. I've got some personal stuff to take care of.
