Wolf Eyes on The Office

On Thursday night, if you watched The Office, you heard the music of the Ann Arbor-based noise band Wolf Eyes. The piece used, entitled The Driller, was released by Sub Pop in 2006. I’ve asked Nate what other sitcoms he’d like to produce music for, but I’ve yet to receive a response.

Speaking of Wolf Eyes, I ran into a guy last night who told me that, last Halloween, he turned his speakers toward the windows at the front of his house and played their music in hopes of upsetting trick-or-treaters. His wife made him stop.

    Really, no comments on this? I expected, when I opened up my computer, that I’d find a heated debate between Wolf Eyes fans and detractors.

    Speaking of Wolf Eyes fans, do they dress alike, like Juggalos? I haven’t been to a show in about six years.

    Well, this is useful for demonstrating how capitalism is so saavy and powerful that it can absorb and incorporate all those seeming acts of cultural resistance that, at base, are mainly stylistic, rather than political.

    Of course, they did get paid. From what I understand, though, it wasn’t tons, and Sub Pop got half.

    I’ve always said that Wolf Eyes should be written in as the whacky neighbors on Two and a Half Men.

    I would like to have seen the Silver Platters (the kids from the Brady Bunch) going up against Wolf Eyes in a battle for the bands
