Tom Breihan, writing for Stereogum, on Geoff Rickly:
Things weren’t always this good for Rickly. Thursday had been spinning their wheels for a while when they finally broke up in 2011. "We used to joke around, Tucker [Rule, drummer] and I," Rickly remembers. "In between songs, he'd do this" — Rickly mimes sticking a punchcard into a machine — "and that would mean he was punching the clock that night. If the guy that’s the engine, in the middle of the band, is like, 'This is just a job,' you feel it resonate through the whole band. Alternately, sometimes, I'd be getting water and looking at him, and he'd be laughing and going, 'You are so not happy.' When you’re interfacing with the...

Geoff Rickly, writing about the new HTRK album for The Talkhouse:
The missing “E” in HTRK could easily stand for “Explanation” or “Explicit.” The lyrics on Psychic 9-5 conjure imagery, imply context. Nothing is overt, nothing is spelled out. On “Give It Up” and “Love Is Distraction,” Standish sings alternately about how she’s “gonna love you much better” and about how “love is distraction from your life,” claiming “we won’t evolve because of it.” The deep ambivalence in her lyrics and delivery omit intention, leaving each listener a meditation on the value of love in a life.

Geoff Rickly recently sat down with Pitchfork to talk about punk, music, and United Nations.
What we get in punk these days is the “anti-anti”: Someone comes up with something, then the next generation is against that, and then the next generation is against that, and then that thing becomes a problem. There's these layers of anti-, and so many of them are just so self-serving. It's not about larger freedom. Laura Jane Grace and Against Me! are one of the only punk rock things I've seen in years. And that's what [The Next Four Years] is about, starting with "Serious Business" as a joke about careerism and privilege and how blind we all are. All these songs are set up as jokes, and the...

The Talkhouse is currently featuring a heartfelt and interesting article written by Geoff Rickly (Thursday) about how circumstances in his life ended up with him paying $2000 to see The xx play in New York. Well worth a read.
A couple of weeks ago I paid $2,000 to see the XX play for forty people at New York’s Park Avenue Armory. They’re not one of my favorite bands or anything. And I’m not rich. But, to me, it was worth it. That either means that it was an utter revelation OR I have no idea of the value of money.

Check the replies for a good audio interview with Geoff Rickley, of Thursday fame, where he addresses a lot of things ... including the rumors that he'll be working with the remaining members of the now defunt Lostprophets. Also in the interview it's revealed that Geoff has decided to really buckle down on his label now that he was able to secure some financing from an investor. They have a Saves the Day 7", Touche Amore 7", and Title Fight 7" all on deck. It's a good listen and definitely worth the time.

Geoff Rickly has written a blog titled "The Nine Circles of Vans Warped Tour." It's a pretty good read. There's an excerpt below and the full things can be read here.
Blood on the Dance Floor makes me feel old and irrelevant. Why? Because I don't know what the fuck it is. It's electro-pop-scream-metal-violence in goth drag that celebrates "cumming" on the audience with giant foam canons and has one of the most positive, inspirational record inserts that I've ever read. It's either horrible nonsense or next-level art. But it's truly made me realize, I don't know the difference. So the singer with red hair and scary make-up told me that Thursday's song, "You know," he says, "the car...

You can now download the first piece of Geoff Rickly's (Thursday) new solo material in the form of a mixtape.
From GeoffThere are no strings attached, no hidden marketing games. This doesn’t reflect my belief that music should be free or any desire to revolutionize an industry. I just want to do this myself, for now. No art-by-committee, no selling music. Just me & my friends at home, making songs(bedroom songs, songs not too polished up). I’ll keep making more of these and giving them to you when I finish. Maybe someday I’ll make a proper record and sell it. Maybe not.

This Good Robot started as a solo project by former Patent Pending frontman Michael Ragosta. It wasn't long before it became a full band and has since blossomed into an eight-person group. They combine a variety of genres, from indie rock to pop punk to post-hardcore and everything in between. Check the band out on facebook, and you can stream their EP, The Human I Am, which was produced by Tim Payne of Thursday, here. Let us know what you think in the replies.
