"No-coasty"--I love it. Perfect for Ubu.
Regional influences really get to me; would be interested to know if
anyone thinks they're as prevalent now as back in "the day."
Hmmm. I'm going to venture that they're not as prevalent in terms of
there being "sounds," but there has been some vital "scenes."
Louisville and Chicago come to mind. Anywhere you can get a critical
mass of like-minded people together, something's going to happen.
Now as far as those scenes being influenced by the region...maybe.
There's a very laid-back vibe to the new Papa M stuff (David Pajo,
late of Chicago's Tortoise, Louisville's Slint, and a million other
bands), including the telltale presence of banjo.
Maybe the alt-country stuff bears more of a regional influence (or an
attempt at one, in some cases, I guess) than other genres, but these
are the only examples that come to mind. Good question.
