Sun Kil Moon’s Mark Kozelek is notorious for provoking the press and his fans. In a concert in June after making some rude comments he was quoted saying “Better stop before I make Pitchfork headlines for myself again”. This time he was playing a concert at Lincoln, Nebraska’s Vega venue on November 17, it was attended by around 100 people. Mark Kozelek said “There was a four-hour delay for my flight in Denver today. It’s been a long day, and I’m tired so I’m just gonna go ahead and do whatever the fuck I want”.
Before performing “The Possum” from Sun Kil Moon latest album, Universal Themes, he said, “this next song is off a really good album and that’s according to everybody but Pitchfork, who apparently found out that I’m a bad person”. Mark continued by playing a song from his critically acclaimed album Benji, “I Can’t Live Without My Mother’s Love”, saying, “Now this song is off a really, really, really, really good album according to Pitchfork. But that was before they found out I was a bad person”.
