Julian Casablancas and The Jarv land on this week’s NME cover

by Eric Van Dril · 19 comments

I’m a little late with this, but if you haven’t seen it yet…

Scans of the article here.

On a related note, there are four more days until I see The Strokes in Wisconsin. Wisconsin blows, but Pearl Jam 20 won’t. Anybody going on either Saturday or Sunday?

“This Was It” have they used that one before, I actually love this reference.
Saturday at PJ20 should be beautiful.

Eric, Hanna, have a great time at PJ20, looking forward to read your reviews and maybe you’ll have pictures…

NME knows what we have all known since Bonnaroo — THE STROKES ARE BACK.

Eric, I think you perform an important service for The Strokes.

Why don’t you call Ryan’s business — Wiz Kid Management — and see if you can interview someone from The Strokes. Do you have an Ipod? you can get an inexpensive microphone and record the conversation and I can help you edit it.

I will also help with questions, as will probably most of the people that read this blog, not that you need it. You certainly have the factual foundation.

Call, do it. We would love it and I KNOW YOU WOULD!!!!

I bet Wiz Kid reads your blog from time to time, maybe.

And Eric, when you’ll call, say you’re Fluffy Delberg, maybe it will work 😉 (jk)

@DiamondCutsHerEye and Kimdiy, I’M SO GLAD THIS IS FINALLY OUT! Thanks for sharing, and what a cool ad. Does anyone know if this will be an actual track is he planning on leaving it as is? Based on the preview here, http://www.azzaroparis.com/#/en/men-s-fragrances_c6527/decibel_c19702 , I feel like there’s more to it. Thoughts? I’m dying to hear all of it.

I am going to be up at Alpine this weekend. I read your website daily and appreciate the work you do. Want to hang up there? let me know. jgockman@gmail.com

I have a lot of funny strokes stories.

I’ll be there Saturday! So stoked; FINALLY bringing Angles to the midwest =)

@lulu — That would be cool, but I don’t really feel like there’s too much to ask right now. Maybe about what playing at PJ Fest means to the band who first fell in love with music because of Pearl Jam?

Plus, I’m getting to the show somewhat late because I have to drive 3 hours up to the venue.

@Kimdiy no prob at all! just saw it and was too eager to share ;D I’m just.. relieved the ad is not (too) cheesy. So, so relieved.
The only corny thing was Julian smashing a guitar though, since he doesn’t exactly play guitar on-stage… Now waiting the entire song to surface. *fingers crossed*
Hope you have a good time at the PJ Fest Eric! Thanks for running this blog.

@Diamond, At first I thought he was smashing the mic stand but then saw it was the guitar- good point about him not playing one on stage, btw. I miss the days when he threw the mic stand all over the place!

Here’s my favorite little video of him throwing stuff. So funny!

The writer of this website is a queer faggot piece of shit if he thinks Wisconsin blows. You can suck a fat one, you sack sucking jackass!
