Brad Sucks (the band)

The other night I met Brad of the band Brad Sucks as I was leaving the William Gibson reading. Brad had gotten Gibson's new book signed along with all the other Gibson fans and, being curious, I asked what Gibson had inscribed in his book. This lead Brad to tell me that he's got this band called Brad Sucks, and not only that, but William Gibson even blogged about "Brad Sucks" recently this month:

"People sometimes ask what I was listening to during the writing of a given book. For Spook Country,... But I've been forgetting Brad Sucks, who I discovered when I was somewhere in the middle. Anesthetic's remix of "Dirtbag", in fact, came to have much to do with the tonality of my character Milgrim. I'd drive around and listen to that if I felt I was losing the peculiarly floaty grip that Milgrim required."

Thinking that this was pretty cool I decided to give the music a listen to and instantly was electrified by the track "Making Me Nervous". It's awesome and is the background music to this slide show. Please, please turn up the volume on this show or put on your headphones if you're viewing this at work.
