Is this the "The bottles are never empty at the Empty Bottle" recording I had a downloaded copy of awhile ago? Starts with a great version of Garden City Blues?


Yes! They play a million songs for a billion hours! Michael had a great entry about it on the SKWM tour journal:

We played for two hours tonight, two hours! What the fuck? At one point I came up front & asked the folks still around - and there were quite a few of them - if they were just humoring us, or if they were actually having fun. It seemed absurd. I mean, we played well, but shit! The fucking bar wasn't even serving booze when we quit! The bartenders had all gone home! The fucking pinball machine was unplugged! Old ladies were on their way to church when we finally poked our heads outside!

Couldn't You Wait? The Story of Silkworm

Postby Carl on Wed Feb 06, 2013 2:45 pm

The documentary will soon be available for download. Looks like $5 for the film, $20 for the film and extras. One of the extras is Andy talking about how he writes lyrics. That alone is well worth $20.

Do any of you have decent-sounding live recordings of quartet formation Silkworm doing songs that are on the rock record Libertine?

Jon


Thanks to those of you who have provided quartet-edition Silkworm live recordings, I've been able to track down great-sounding versions of almost all the songs on "Libertine."

I'm still missing two tracks though, so I'll make one more hopeful plea: If you have live takes on either "Oh How We Laughed" or "The Cigarette Lighters" to share PLEASE STEP FORWARD.

I saw someone with a SKWM shirt yesterday at the bah. I was like woah, and told him his shirt was really cool.

It was actually posted in the Silkworm/Bottomless Pit Update thread, but it's probably good that it's here as well.

Found some skwm ephemera. Think these made the movie, but anyway, some pretty cool artifacts from the Spin archives.

From the way I grew up, this is how to get into Silkworm:

grow up on punk rock + find out about Creedence Clearwater Revival + find out about The Band = you become a fan of Silkworm
Here comes the pissball, shithead - get ready!

I have determined that this is the best Andy-sung Silkworm song:

Yesterday was the last day for pre-orders. Last time Jon mentioned it I don't think it's expected to ship until September or sometime in the fall.
