Seattle Times music writer Andrew Matson wasn’t expecting a full interview with Lee Ranaldo, Thurston Moore, and Kim Gordon, but he got it, along with their “outsider” indie-royalty views on blogs and the state of indie today.
When Matson inquired about their thoughts on music blogs, Gordon deadpanned: “I think blogs are for people who are neurotic about having to know everything about everything all the time. Not really having to know everything but to have to be thinking about everything all the time.”
“I think everybody should deactivate their Facebook accounts tonight,” Moore said and Ranaldo joked, “None of us have ever used a computer in our lives, man.”
