nick cave is a middlebrow hack. jim morrison is a rock god. thats the basic difference.

caves attempts to write novels are 1000 times more embaressing than jim morrisons poems. at least morrison wasnt fawning in the direction of the observer culture supplement.

i suppose im quite interested in the resistance to the doors. i hadnt realised it was so strong. i started the police thread cos i knew there was resistance but had underestimated it it turns out. with the doors i just thouhgt everyone liked em, like ice cream or sunshine.

fwiw I would definitely rather listen to The Police than the Doors. the inauthenticity is at least authentic there. plenty garbage but a few jams too.

Voices Inside My Head is killer, and a million times better than any Doors song

ya I was gonna mention he tells the exact same story in Please Kill Me, oiled ringlets + Soul Kitchen + all

what that clip leaves out is that he was also actively trolling the U of M frat boys shouting for Light My Fire, messing w/their machismo a bit, etc

if that Morrison ever came across on the records I could maybe see some of the appeal, but he doesn't

I do find it interesting to be so far apart on this, cos on major touchstones - jungle, post-punk (PIL etc) - there's a basic dissensus consensus

I wonder what other wedge issues are lying in wait, ready to spark major polemica

luka, who knows, I doubt even he's sure all the time, that's kinda the point

blissblogger tho? seems an awful lotta trouble to go to. just a true Doors fan.

as long as we can all agree The Eagles are terrible, everything is still perfectly copacetic.
