TV on the Radio’s Last Album Born Out of Space Madness, Stimpy-Inspired Soap Fights

Florian Bohm's Broadway/34th Street (2005)

"I'm glad that record exists, but it was kind of like the Ren & Stimpy episode where they get space madness, and they're orbiting the planet, ready to kill each other for a bar of soap." Tunde Adebimpe on Return to Cookie Mountain [A.V. Club]

"I hope with my records that we reach all different kinds of people. Senior citizens are welcome. Babies can come, too. I like babies, but not in the front row. I don't want to sing directly to a baby." Jenny Lewis [A.V. Club]

"[Led Zeppelin are] saying: 'We're all rehearsed, we're ready to go, here's a gazillion dollars on the table. If you don't do it, we're going out with this kid. And he can sing the shit out of Zeppelin.'" Dee Snider on the rumor that Led Zeppelin is considering going on tour without Robert Plant [Guardian]

"We called the song 'Gobbldigob,' which is an Icelandic word for the sound a horse's hooves make. I think you call it 'clippity-clop' in English." —Sigur Rós' Georg Holm on their new song, "Gobbledigook" [Pitchfork]

"We wanted to name it Marry Me, we thought it was hysterical, but then St. Vincent did it. Fuck!" Marnie Stern, Arrested Development fan [Pitchfork]
