Examining fandom

Almost a year ago exactly I wrote a post about seeing the Mountain Goats live and about John Darnielle’s interesting fame.

Fast forward to present day, New York Magazine has a piece in their current issue called God & Worshipper: A Rock-and-Roll Love Story, of Sorts, which details the connection between Mountain Goats fans and the bands’ driving force.

The great thing about reading the article online is that New York Mag has included audio tracks to accompany the story. Great idea!

Read the article here.

Great find. I was disappointed at the commenters on the article who didn't seem to get it. Yes this article could have been written about a myriad of different artists, so what.


ps. I think Super Floss might actually be back.
