Grinderman slaps ‘em silly at Coachella.

My face is finished, my body’s gone
And I can’t help but think, standin’ up here
In all this applause and gazin’ down
At all the young and the beautiful
With their questioning eyes
That I must above all things love myself “

Man, this sounds fuckin’ good. Pussy deprivation can be an excellent source of inspiration.

Larry “Ratso” Sloman, A-list celebrity lit collaborator (Howard Stern, Anthony Kiedis), counterculture gadfly and well-dressed man about Manhattan, returns to his roots as a rock journalist, writing in the first-person for a rollicking road diary of a chunk of Grinderman’s American tour. It’s probably the best article SPIN has published this decade:

Then she turns to me.

“I’m Sarah. What do you do?”

“I’m the spiritual advisor to the band,” I answer.

“He keeps us on the straight and narrow,” Warren elaborates. “Gets us all up in the morning to do meditation and exercises.”

“I don’t always succeed,” I add.

Suddenly Sarah is obsessed with everyone’s age. When Warren tells her he’s 45, she protests.

“No, you’re not. You look younger than 45. I’m about to be 32.”

“I would have guessed 20,” Warren says gallantly.

Finally, Sarah introduces herself to Nick. With that over, she gets down to business.

“I have one question for all of you right now. Where have you not been where’d you like to go to?” she wonders.

Silence.

“Home,” Nick says.

“Where’s home?” she asks.

“Between Britney Spears legs,” he answers, drolly.
