So the 28 members of Margot and the Nuclear So & So's rocked the Bowery last Monday, regardless of drunken taunts from fans with supposedly ridiculous requests like "play broadripple!" Margot really didn't like that, but despite threats to strike anything from the set that people requested, Broadripple went on burning. And so did my love for the bearded king of pretention. Yes, I know his name isn't actually Margot. But for simplicities sake, deal with it.


Margot gets a bad rap for being major, for being a little too full of himself, and being an all-around level above us. I mean, the guy is releasing two albums, one for Epic and one for himself. His album is called Animal. The Epic one? Not Animal. Clever.



The song selection for the two forthcoming LPs was apparently easy, anything the label people liked was immediately disqualified from Animal. And everything they hated will comprise the tracklist. Honestly though, Margot is at his best when he is completely stripped down and raw, totally exposed and true, not trying to sound like or be anything. The cough on the demo we heard to "Broadripple" makes it so genuine... In any event, we like the band, and we're aiming to see them again soon. -joe puglisi
