June 4, 2008 They felt to me like a mafia of music lovers, who were supposedly representing ‘alternative,’ but at the same time I found them to be sort of oppressive. You couldn’t like certain bands if they were too pop. And if you didn’t know which band had split up to re-form the band that you were discussing, then you didn’t have an opinion. You couldn’t even throw out an opinion, because you just didn’t have the background. — Liz Phair (via toomuchawesome). PREACH!
