Concrete Blonde: Only their hairdressers know for sure
Laura Fissinger, Creem, August 1987
I DON'T KNOW if any of you guys read the New York Times — I personally try to avoid it at all costs — but there was a music overview piece in there by Jon Pareles a few months ago that really rang my chimes. Pareles invented a new genre and named it "mope rock" (or "glum rock").
Total word count of piece: 1082
