My four words are nothing


By popular demand I’m doing my four-word reviews of bands at South by Southwest again this year. If I do every band I see for more than five minutes, I’ll end up with probably 30 to 40 reviews. But I’ve been put to shame by Paul Ford at The Morning News, who is doing six-word reviews of every act that has an MP3 posted on the SXSW site, and so far he’s done 1,302 of them. You can even view them on a Google Docs spreadsheet.

Hats off to Paul for his productivity, and for the zingers, like Alessi’s Ark (“Let’s camp and hug each other”), Very Be Careful (“Everyone stopped chewing and just stared”) and Silk Flowers (“Casiotone that should be left alone”).
