How to ruin your love of music. Attend Listen Again: Music You Should Change Your Mind About Right Now. Even the title is a turn-off. A gaggle, a herd, a flock (what is the correct term for a group of rock journalists? One colleague suggests a “bitter”) of music writers will have five minutes each to talk the audience into reconsidering some forgotten pop. Better idea: Listen to Stella and Reverend Dan on KXLU this Friday playing music that needs no thesaurus-hugging hyperbole. Just kidding, this really sounds great. Some cool people we know will be there. I just wish they had asked me, because I have an entire Powerpoint presentation proving that without Supertramp there would be no Flaming Lips.
