The Entertainers

My riotous invective continues over on the 'box, where I take on the music journalism establishment fists swingin'. Confidential to Chicago readers: can you believe that the Illinois Entertainer still exists? With their own plastic newpaper boxes and everything? Christ, that thing was a flaming piece of garbage when I was a kid, decades ago--are there really still enough douchey wah-pedal enthusiasts around to support that sorry-assed magazine? While hard-working writers like me are relegated to the far reaches of the internet?

  1. You know, I vividly remember a copy of IE I picked up when I was 12 or 13, and the picture of the trio on the cover, and their outfit's name, Uncle Tupelo. If IE had done a better job, maybe I would've heard Tweedy a decade sooner.

    P.S. I wanna read/hear about your novel.
