jim white vs. robbie fulks
i've been listening to robbie since i first saw him on austin city limits in ??? 1998 ???
i've been listening to jim white for about 3 months (saw him open for wilco in toronto last year)
there's one point i'm trying to get across...
i think jim white copies robbie fulks
and i like the both of them very much
could this be a case of some of your favorite artists (currently) sounding the same just becuz
i know when neil freaks out it sounds like lou reed, ccr, sonic youth or so many others that i love reachin' that peak where it all kinda sounds the same -- really good!
i'm not so sure this is the case. i am convinced after several listens that jim white's "buzzard's of love" (Drill a Hole in That Substrate and Tell Me What You See - Luaka Bop 2004)
is borrowed from robbie fulks's "real money" (Couples in Trouble - Boondoggie Records 2001)
neither is mainstream, but if you are reading this, chances are you can understand my confusion
now on with the whippets....
