RSS icon Comments on Today in Stranger Suggests


Jesus I'm sick of hearing the name Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, it's everywhere. I feel like I'm being carpet bombed by it, it's like junk mail. The music is boring, it sounds like new band night at a sports bar. And Ted Leo is hot? He looks like a crusty high school teacher that collects kiddie porn. TED LEO AND THE PHARMACISTS GO AWAY I HATE YOU!!!

Someone better warn these guys that Stranger Suggests is a two edged sword.

The Stranger giveth, the Stranger taketh away.

If Ted Leo wasn't a musician, would anyone think he's hot? Yeah, I didn't think so.

haha about that thinking, funniest thing happened in Montreal, circa 2005. He was doing the show and it was going alright, and then he said "heeey so your liberal PM Paul Martin said y'all are staying out of Iraq!"

The awkward was palpable. The mere fact that he reminded them they were under Canadian juristdiction would have been bad enough. The Mercier riding, in which he was playing, was almost a tie this last election between le parti Québécois (the centre-left separatists) and Québec Solidaire (the extreme left separatists; union of feminists + Marxists) and they do nooot appreciate their liberals. Apparently he'd never heard the Loco Locass song, "Liberez-nous des Libereaux".

I don't know if I'm a fan of Ted's music, but Megan's description is as cool as dope. I might check it out. Rock on!

Ever hear the one about Ted Leo sucker-punching Robert Pollard like a girly-man in a pink shirt, just because Bob made fun of his crappy music?
