MP3 Exclusive: Lightning Bolt

Taking care of business in a flash.

It seemed to us that after all the fucking hype about Wonderful Rainbow that Lightning Bolt's new Hypermagic Mountain -- which is, like, a totally better record and the one everyone should be screaming "breakout masterpiece" about -- is being strangely kinda slept on. Then we called their publicists and found out why: they're trying to hold all the press until LB embark on their 2006 tour, which should kick off in February/March. Nonetheless, our favorite new Phoenix critic James Parker managed to track down the elusive Providence proletarians, and to squeeze out of them one of the best Bolt interviews we've ever read: "I mean, what is the purpose of a show?" says Bolt bassist Brian Gibson. "That’s the question. What are you trying to give people? Because I think when people come to a show — and they forget this — but what they really want is to get lost."
