F*#% the World With Anti-Rock Stars Angels in America at Sweat Records Tomorrow
These days, being a rock star isn't about mystery, aloofness, and fuck-the-world attitude.
Thanks to the inescapable ever-presence of the internet and the slow death of the music industry, the rock 'n' roll lifestyle has become a sterile, never-ending cycle of virtual fan friendship, high-speed schmoozing, and $9.99 album sales at Walmart.
But Moppy Pont and Merv Glisten of Montreal-slash-NYC noise duo Angels in America are different.
They're anti-rock stars. They're too mysterious, aloof, and full of fuck-the-world attitude to even sign up for a Facebook or Twitter account. And they give away a big chunk of their recorded catalog via WFMU's Free Music Archive.
