Can’t stop the rock

A writer for the UK’s the Guardian newspaper undertook a daunting task- he listened to every cd released in the month of October.

Go read the story of his slow descent into madness and marvel at the sheer amount of crap that gets released every month. It’s amazing to find out how many truly unnecessary albums are reissued. I can understand London Calling, but is there really a clamor amongst music fans for a Buggles reissue?

The article is similar in tone to one that Joe Queenan did for Movieline, where he watched every single Merchant-Ivory film ever made. I highly recommend reading the Guardian article above, as well as tracking down a copy of Queenan’s book, Confessiona of a Cineplex Heckler.
