Alex Chilton

Reading assignment for the day: go read Joshua Ellis' excellent essay, "Children by the Millions Wait for Alex Chilton" in Coilhouse. If you grew up at a time and in a cultural subgroup when liking the Smiths was a sign of election and finding obscure albums by 4AD bands required going to the record store with the scary looking staff, this essay's for you.
