Moby to be evicted (Music-news.com)
MS: The 'Go' singer, who bought a $3 million house in the Hollywood Hills district in January with close friend and fashion designer Stacey Bendet, has been warned by neighbours not to go ahead with plans to convert his garage into a recording studio.
One neighbour said: "Moby is turning the garage into his studio and the neighbours are all up in arms. He should be careful though."
Pop superstar Prince suffered the same fate when he made too much noise while living in the area.
The Hot Seat: Kim Deal (Timeout New York)
MS: Did the success of that song cause any jealousy among your indie-rock peers?
You know, [Pavement’s Stephen] Malkmus is being a bit of a bitch in interviews recently. One thing he said last summer referred to me as “trashy mouth.” And he just did this article in Spin where he alluded to me unpleasantly, saying [something like], “You know, I always thought that Pavement could have had one of those big hits in the early ’90s with ‘Cut Your Hair,’ but I guess people preferred ‘Cannonball.’ ”
Are you a fan of his music?
Yeah, I liked Pavement. But if he keeps fucking smacking his mouth off about me, I’m going to end up not being able to listen to any of their fucking records again. Anyway, I thought, God, man, “Cut Your Hair” isn’t as good of a song as “Cannonball,” so fuck you. How’s that? Your song was just a’ight, dawg.
