Re: Cool Blue Halo

robert from licorice fix claims...

>Irony in rock is, or at least should be, dead.

are you kidding?  irony killed rock.
cool blue halo is the rotting eyeball in the putrid corpse.

ok, so i don't really believe that, but i thought it would be 
freaky to say.  :-)

anyone who thinks irony in rock is dead needs to hear steve malkmus
yodelling.  :-)

well, it's hard for us in halifax, having been exposed to cool blue halo
over a period of 5 years or so now, to think of "sweetie said" as the
"initial song" of cool blue halo.  the fact is, that that recording is
a studio experiment that resulted from their lack of a drummer at the
time.  it sounds like nothing they've done in the studio before or 
since, and it certain never had anything to do with their live sound.

>I met Jason, one of the guitarists, while I was in Halifax and he suggested

and the answer to that is no (No!); see above.

yeah, i think cool blue halo have been doing the power-pop thing long
enough that it's about time they got their share of recognition.
i see no reason why they couldn't be a popular muchmusic band.
