Have a great weekend, everybody!

I think [Coco Moore] is possibly reactionary toward being anything in the public eye. When she was born, it was announced on MTV, you know. So that’s slightly off-putting for her. Kim and I never had any involvement with any illicit behavior. Even on the tour buses she grew up on, we were watching John Candy movies and wearing our pajamas. When we were on Lollapalooza in ’95, when she was just learning how to walk, there were all these completely insane bands around us: Courtney Love, Hole, the Jesus Lizard. But onstage, they play the most straight-ahead post-punk rock music. Then Sonic Youth would come out, and we play the most fucked-up music. We’re squares; the most straight band is playing the most unstraight music. Maybe that’s where we put our fucked-up-ness: in the art.

Mark Lanegan on Turning 50 Next Month

Diffuser: You’re coming up on 50 next month. Big plans, or will you be out on the road?
Mark Lanegan: I’m not going to be out on the road for once. For the first time in 10 years I’m going to actually be home on my birthday. I’m going to go out to dinner, nothing fancy.
Diffuser: Not going to do it up? No giant Vegas party with showgirls and …
Lanegan: I’ve used up all of my partying privileges.
