After wrapping a 2013 that saw a lengthy tour behind the excellent <em, Local Business, a several thousand word review of a The Replacements reunion show, and a multi-night last stand at Maxwell’s , Titus Andronicus front man Patrick Stickles has a lot on his mind facing the new year. The outspoken NJ born songwriter has never shied away from making his opinions of modern music known through interviews and an active, follower engaging Twitter account.
Like minded rock enthusiast Marc Maron recently found Stickles to be the perfect conversational partner in the latest edition of the comedian’s WTF Podcast. In an episode, interestingly enough sponsored by Arctic Monkeys’ AM, the duo discuss “rules and rule breaking, the Rolling Stones versus Led Zeppelin, and why rock and roll is a dying artform.”
