I saw the new "reunion" Don Cab play at cbgb's a few weeks ago. Disappointingly, it was crap. Also, I'm not a big fan of 'American Don'. However, 'What Burns Never Returns' is one of my all time favorite albums, so

not crap.

i didnt bother going to see the 'reunited' don cab so i cant comment on that, however, the rest of the catalog is solid in my book, including american don...

not crap.

Don Cab II alone makes for NOT CRAP, even with bizarre reuniting rituals.

That LP used to scare children.
But I digress. Please continue with the squirrel circuit semantic debate.

The majority of the band cannot be blamed for the bizarre reunion. That new incarnation is not Don Caballero.

What's deal with the new shows? I heard it's only the drummer with all new other guys?

This begs the question "What is Don Caballero?" I believe Damon Che is the only member of the band who has been constant throughout its history, even before this 'reunion' tour, so who's to say he can't get new guys and go on the road as Don Caballero again?

Don Cab is clearly NOT CRAP. The music they wrote with Mike Banfield clearly kicks the newer stuff in the sack, though.

Don Cab 2 is ridiculously awesome.

Don Caballero is probably my favorite band overall. I caught two of the "reunion" shows and while the covers of their earlier material were not too hot, they played a number of new songs that I got a bootleg of from easytree or something and listen to rather frequently. Not as good as What Burns Never Returns but far better than most of the stuff off of For Respect, IMO.

But now it seems that Damon is focusing more on his other band, The Speaking Canaries, who are also really great. I hope the new Don Caballero stuff is recorded and released soon.

'The Lucky Father Brown' is one of my favourite slabs of metal, other than that they were all peaks and troughs; Don Caballero? She is inconsistent.

NOT CRAP.

:WF: very high.

Yes, but even at their trough-inest they were at a higher altitude than a lot of bands. "No More Peace and Quiet for the Warlike" slays me every single time.

Maybe, but I don't consider music and bands in a relative sense.

Plenty of their stuff strays into sub-Reich fluff.

if i could take old Yes albums, and either remove or maybe even just change the vocals, i would take that over Don Cab any day. Yes had all the creativity and virtuosity, but were less obnoxious, less overstated. it's like... the non-vocally-challenged Yes would be the equivalent of a girl lifting up her blouse and showing me her belly and maybe the very bottoms of her breasts... and Don Cab would be a whore pressing her crotch up against my face. or, for the ladies, Yes would be like a guy telling you a joke and flexing his biceps... and Don Cab would be a guy smacking you in the face repeatedly with his giant rock hard cock.

looks like about 75% of the folks here like to be smacked in the face with a giant rock hard cock. you guys are so weird!

I recently put on AMERICAN DON, and while I used to consider it sort of half-assed sounding, this time around I found it very entertaining, intricate, and well done.

I was doing a crossword. I don't know if that had anything to do with it.

Well, yeah. Who doesn't like that?

I still think that both Yes and Don Cab are crap.

Very solid. American Don & Don Cab II were amazing... both are near perfect studio recordings as well. Not crap.
