Just Wondering


Does anyone else think that Wolf Parade might just have listened to Marquee Moon a few times?

*goes straight to Myspace to have a listen*

*comes back here*

I can see how you'd think that.

I shall investigate them further.

don't infer that they gleaned anything from their listenings.

I'm not really getting the Marquee Moon influence, apart from the sense I get that *every* "alternative" band since REM seems to have been at least minimally-informed by Marquee Moon.

Is there a particular track you had in mind?

I like them a lot. I may have to pick up the album.

I hear it on Soldier's Grin like nobody's bidness. Other songs, not so much. Although vocals on Language City evoke MM too.
