tonyxtsunami replied to your post: I saw your twitter feed criticizing some critics usage of “garage rock” and how it can be a lazy blanket term. Well, what I want to ask you is why is it lazy? What is “garage rock” to you? And yes, why are terms SO important? Granted, calling Joy Division a big band swing band perhaps is not the greatest thing one can say or claim. I’m not necessarily against “terms,” but when you start to call people “lazy” about such a wide term like “garage rock,” or “lo-fi,” a bit unfair and ridiculous, yeh?

I appreciated the question, but they did completely misinterpret what I was initially criticizing.
