  1. The final song is even called "Ian Curtis Wish List." On a previous album they cover a Joy Division song. On this one they do "Fast Car" by Tracy Chapman. Not sure if this is supposed to be sincere or ironic. Xiu Xiu have made an impressive statement nonetheless, and it is much like reading a suicide note, years Reviews: 9.

  6. I bring this up because I realised that I had started to think about Xiu Xiu in a very Jamie-centric way, even though Angela has been a member for 10 years now! And although Xiu Xiu has a lot of queer and minority fans (myself included), I do feel like Jamie’s band mates would be less commonly overlooked if they were white men.
