A blog devoted to the works of Stephin Merritt of The Magnetic Fields, The 6ths, Future Bible Heroes, The Gothic Archies, et al. This blog will feature news related to his work, as well as occasional fanboy gushes from the author. Thank you for stopping by, and may all your dreams come true.

This article from Mountain Xpress dissects an upcoming even in Asheville, NC featuring local musicians covering all of 69 Love Songs in order.  The article also features mini-interviews with some of the participating musicians gushing about how much they love the record, which is a pretty sweet deal.

Here is a review of The Magnetic Fields' show in Toronto the other night, and here is another.  Hopefully the colds in question will heal sooner than later.

Metro International features this very brief interview with Mr. Merritt, in which its author puts words into the mouths of us SM-fans.  I also love how the author saves the obligatory "I hear you suck to interview" style question for the very last one.


  1. Oh my goodness, what a terrific article Mr. Williamson. Lordy. About to read it now with a nice cup of tea.

  2. It is very nice to read people gush about something I love so much...
