Henry Rollins: I’ve never heard Daft Punk; I’ve never heard a track of theirs in my life. They’re the two guys with motorcycle helmets on?
Rolling Stone: Yeah, they dress up like robots.
Henry Rollins: You know what, you will take this any way you will. That to me is like Rolling Stone music. It’s the shit that’s in your magazine. And it’s like, that world… I’m so glad that you all have found your people, but that world is so alienating to me. Anything that gets on the Grammys or the American Music Awards. . . like, was Miley Cyrus on the cover of your magazine?
Rolling Stone: She was.
Henry Rollins: Yeah, see, I like real music. John Coltrane’s my favorite musician, what am I doing reading Rolling Stone? You know what I mean?
This podcast – recorded a couple of days ago in front of Soccer Saturday on mute – includes two songs I first heard thanks to Henry Rollins. It might also contain music he finds alienating.
