The [Ninja Turtles] henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady have hijacked the musical genres for us just like the Lone Ranger hijacked the William Tell Overture for our parents.

Some of us may have gone to several days of music festivals in the last month and may also be refusing to write about them, but for the rest of us, there is the internet. While the availability of free music pales in comparison to the free files of ill repute, there is still plenty of quality out there.

I first heard The Mountain Goats after I downloaded two songs from You ain't no Picasso (Note the new address, site admins). The song title of Cubs in SixFive sold them to me. I may despise baseball, but baseball jokes are still funny. Regardless of the lamitude of professional sports, The Mountain Goats mp3s are available for download here, but Cubs in SixFive is not. You will have to wade through a month of YANP for that. I have already documented my disdain for music reviews and I'll just say that Cubs in Six is worth a listen or five.

also has free music for download and you should check them out. I like them and I'm a freaking genius, so you should listen to my opinion.

The Mountain Goats are playing the Black Cat on Thursday Sept 28. That is going to be a busy week with the Architecture in Helsinki show on Monday.

Well, of course during my music festival madness I did see about half of The Mountain Goats set. They are good but the lead singer was really upbeat and funny throughout the show (not his normal behavior). It was a good set and very funny but we kept looking at each other - trying to figure out what was going on here.

I think the Cubs in Six I have is from that show. If I remember the post correctly.
