silkworm/bottomless pit update

Postby mattw on Fri May 26, 2006 11:55 am

Taken from the Chicago Reader:

chicago reader wrote:The surviving members of Silkworm, bassist Tim Midgett and guitarist Andy Cohen, have just finished mixing the last songs they recorded with drummer Michael Dahlquist before he died in a July 2005 car crash along with fellow musicians Doug Meis and John Glick. Four originals and a rendition of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Wrote a Song for Everyone” were tracked at Electrical Audio last spring; these, along with an old live version of Bob Dylan’s “Spanish Harlem Incident” by the Crust Brothers, Silkworm’s covers project with Stephen Malkmus, will be released as an EP on Gerard Cosloy’s 12XU label, probably in the late fall.

In August the Michigan label Genuflect Records will release a Silkworm tribute, An Idiot to Not Appreciate Your Time, which has been in the planning stages since before Dahlquist’s death. The final track listing isn’t settled yet, but the disc will include at least 20 Silkworm covers by indie acts from around the U.S. and Europe.

Bottomless Pit, Midgett and Cohen’s post-Silkworm band with Chris Manfrin of Seam on drums and Brian Orchard from .22 on bass, will begin recording its first dozen songs in June with engineer Greg Norman. The group has played a handful of shows since debuting quietly last November and is tentatively planning to tour a bit with Magnolia Electric Co. in the fall. On June 14 they’ll share a bill with Portland’s Eux Autres at Schubas

All Your Mothers.

Itchy Jung Queens was a disturbing gonzo video to make. Four camera men killed themselves in the process. Buying vaseline in fifty gallon drums was costly in the financing, and that was just to cover the lenses. Still it was utterly necessary to go on. Have you ever seen vaseline sprayed from a hose? It still keeps me up at night, shaking. petroleum Jelly is supposed to be the only sucessful anti-aging salve, yet I feel like I'm a thousand years old after seeing those mountains of jiggling orifices puckering and writhing on a dirty tarp.


anyway, here's some of those B Pit dates w/Magnolia and Shearwater (who are awesome, really really beautiful.):

9-15 - Cambridge, MA - The Middle East
9-16 - New York, NY - The Knitting Factory
9-17 - Philadelphia, PA - First Unitarian Church

and another in Austin w/ Magnolia Electric, Serenah Maneesh, Xiu Xiu, Cong For Brums, Barr:

9-29 - Austin, TX - Emo’s



Lots of TBA's in between.

I was at Electrical when SKWM were doing some of those last recordings. I am very excited to hear how they came out. It was fun hanging out talking gambling tips in fake italian.

So love the Pit, and Kerble's Mom too.
my mustache will be named 'Rick'.

The Silkworm EP "Chokes" is excellent beyond compare.

Damn, do I miss this band.

Chokes! is fucking great. What a perfect way to end that band.

God bless the SKWM and all who sail with it.

Today I noticed there are three good videos of SKWM playing at ATP on the 12XU site.

Please give them a look here.

i ordered the Chokes! EP on somethinbg of a whim, and was pleasantly surprised to have enjoyed it (never had any other SKWM recordings). good stuff, though "Bar Ice" is downright great (nicely done, Mr. Midge and Co.) and "International Harbor of Grace" is very catchy too (i liek this sort of music best when it's got nice hooks).

not crap.
