YouTube revival Mark Prindle

2021-02-20 by Johnny[well] STAFF | 26 Comments
Legendary ex-music reviewer Mark Prindle has returned to the public sphere after nine years of dormancy. Earlier today, Prindle's music channel was updated with a series of archival videos including the following:

-> 1991/1992 footage of Prindle and his college friends taking the piss out of shoe commercials by talking about pussy.

-> A (probably) 1992 video of Prindle and accompanists busking in Chapel Hill. Their songs are improvised around song titles made up by those attending.

-> A 1992 12-minute short film "Lunkhead", which shows Prindle step on a glass and stand on a high storey of a very tall building, and other things also.

-> A 1994 interview with members of Pavement, partially inaudible and unsuitable for those suffering from tinnitus. The primary point of interest is the unorthodox and actually quite complex dynamic of all three contributing parties sitting in horizontal alignment on top of a wall: an interviewer's worst nightmare.

The former three videos feature contributions from Prindle's friend, the "late, great Chris "Yellowboy" Williams." It is unclear whether Williams is recently deceased or these uploads are a response to his death, but condolences from Sputnikmusic either way.

Indubitably one of the cooler and more impretentious rock critics of all time, Mark Prindle retired his review site shortly after the death of his dog in 2012. His opinions on indie, noise rock, hardcore and alternative are highly regarded by real ones across the internet. It is highly unlikely that these uploads signal a return to music reviewing, but his site's security certificate is doing okay meanwhile.

"least pretentious rock critics of all time"

I guess calling people pussyfags and relentlessly joking about beating your wife are unpretentious

I don't think he had a pretense for the domestic abuse joke so I say he's right

Yeah Narduwar's got over-enthusiastic over-sharer energy, the well meaning sort that you know from the get go if you got into a conversation you'd eventually have to be the one to find a polite exit to the conversation

Prindle's got toxically masculine alcoholic domestic abuse energy

V v different
