Slicing Up Eyeballs!

Slicing Up Eyeballsis a website dedicated to 80s Alt.Rock music. Lots of coverage/nostalgia for MTV 120 Minutes. Great graphics of cassette cover spines. I got into this genre (these genres?) late, but I still had, saw, skipped over in the bins, or browsed through friends’ copies of all the tapes in the header photo. Excellent choices. Taking Kevin Seal seriously is a little weird.

Matt Pinfield


Dave KendallI watched the Lonely Is an Eyesore clip and was interested in the quotations from the 4AD founder. Also found a link to a weird encounter between Dave Kindle (Kendall? Ken Doll? huh?) and Matt Pinfield. Bored by all the Morrissey hype, but that’s just my taste. Music blogging since 2009, online radio weekly for the last 2 years. In what I hope is just a bit of silliness, they cite the Pixies’ “Debaser” as the source for the title of their blog, but fail to mention that “Debaser” uses the phrase to refer toslicing eyeballs The Andalusian Dog/Un Chien Andalou, a film by Dali and Bunuel. Cool feature: monthly (?) mixtape downloads. I dig that they’re broken into 45 minute “sides.” This month’s features Depeche Mode, BAD, Oingo Boingo, the Femmes, R.E.M., The Mighty Lemon Drops, and Midge Ure (of Ultravox, etc.) doing a live version of “Dear God.” Awesome.
