Maus Space

I've continually had a liking for the mystical, but it wasn't until I matured a little iota that I discovered John Maus!

I just picked this up today, Ariel cover feature. Looks to be a good interview. I've just done the initial skim through and he nods to The Cure's Faith LP (even going so far as telling Joy Division to shove it by comparison). Also he compares the hyped sexuality of Symphony of the Nymph to Buzzcocks' "Orgasm Addict", which I can actually see.
Anyone else got it? Thoughts?

Joy Division were far better than the Cure

I do know what he means as far as the Faith LP is concerned, though. There is something to it being a genre in itself, as he puts it. Typifying "mediocrity, ambiguity, totally serious and totally hopeless."

I actually wouldn't mind doing that just for you. :truluv: Might be easier to scan, though. :D

I do like Faith, but it's not as important to me as even the most marginal JD song

Of course you can! :dancparty: Here is a link to the Photobucket album I created. Sorry about the dodgy scans. Might have been easier as PDF files (jpeg1 = page 1), but I hope you enjoy. http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v252/ ... he%20Wire/

WTF, if you're gonna scan something MAKE IT BIG SO YOU CAN READ IT.

:(

I mean, thanks for doing this, but it defeats the purpose when you zoom in and it's too blurry to read. Guess I'll have to read it at the book store. :rage:

Looked fine to me zoomed in at 100%. I did say it wasn't perfect (the crease is a bit hard to get under the scanner). But by all means, if you're not happy, go buy your own copy.
