FIREWATER FIREWATER FIREWATER

That said, the run of albums from Lifestyle to It'll Be Cool are nigh on fucking outstanding. Each of them show the band getting more graceful and mature as they got older, yet still expanding their sound. Fucking It'll Be Cool especially. Every single song on that album is completely different from the next and yet they all fit together.

Ok, fanboying over. Just remember FIREWATER.

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.


Not speaking for Jon, but September seems about right. I've been told that all the pieces/inserts/goodies will be in place around July/August.


ALLOW ME TO SPEAK FOR JON!

Records being pressed in July. Everything else is on target to be done prior.

Shirt order being finalized in another window.

Two proofs left to approve, hopefully before the end of the day.

Likely "street date" in September with those who pre-ordered hopefully being rewarded at least a month prior (barring unforeseen delays).


:(

Jon, I had some personal stuff that week which commanded my attention totally (TM can attest to this)... Can a honky still get in on the LP+shirt?

It doesn't get any better than Andy Cohen's first guitar solo on 'Slow Hands'. NC.

Silkworm: Italian Platinum. Sweet piss-shitting mother of fuck.

I had to take a few months' break from the 'Worm as a result of nearly feeling burned out, and today this record is kicking me straight in the face all over again. Actual cold chills. God this record is great.

Anyone else notice how similar the guitars and vocals on "Shithead" are to early Suicidal Tendencies?

Anyone willing to share the Developer b-sides? In return I'll crudely draw the Spinal Tap member of your choice.

So I came across a SKWM tape on eBay called Girl Harbrr and have found very little information about it online (other than the fact that it exists and is by some earlier SKWM lineup.) Anyone have any insight? I'm curious but not "$25 curious"...

IIRC, it's all on Even A Blind Chicken Finds A Kernel Of Corn Now And Then but I could be wrong.

I'm pretty sure none of that tape is anywhere else, actually. Could be wrong.

I've got it on a hard drive, somewhere. I'll get it to you. I'd say, comfortably in the presence of at least one person on the tape, that it's not worth $25 unless you're a record nerd like me. I didn't pay anything for it.

I immediately thought of that, but there's no mention in the liner notes of that tape. Also, it looks like that it'd fall out of the scope of the Chicken comp as it looks like the tape is from '89.

Here's the listing -

Hey,

Just noticed this.

None of that tape is on anything else. All the cassette releases are exactly where they should be...on cassette and random digital files.

Haven't listened to it in 10yrs plus, but...

"Georgia" is the one thing that didn't get redone on anything else.

It was fun to play and helped me get a handle on various ideas I continue to use a lot. Had a certain new-to-me melodic quality to it that I always liked, and the verse was broken up by musical bits, which was a new thing for me to do.

I remember feeling like I'd accomplished something with it, but I don't know what I'd think of it now. Probably we didn't resurrect it for a reason.

"Pearl Harbor" is old version, was redone on His Absence is a Blessing. It's probably OK here.

"Authority" is better on the Ein Heit record, I am sure. The guitar riff and bass line for that dude are indelible, so it's probably fine here.

"Enough is Enough" is probably yet more turgid than it was on In the West. "A Tunnel," surely better on Libertine but also much much different on the tape as I recall.

All in all, I bet it is worth something for the guitar playing if nothing else.

Joel was still using a bunch of effects stuff then, and he got some really great underwater guitar sounds. Also it was just him on gtr, so he had room to do some stuff he might not have done w/Andy.

Thanks for listening!

Was pointed to this via another friend about another band, but as I read through I noticed this nice shout-out to the Worm:

Rob Sheffield's Top 20 Albums of 2014

Rob Sheffield wrote:10. Protomartyr, Under Color Of Official Right
The party-killer album of the year. "Come and see the good in everything," sneers Joe Casey, a Detroit player who sounds like he hasn't seen the good in a damn thing since he heard his first Silkworm record. The guitar has the same acerbic after-hours humor as the vocals, loaded with booze and Catholic guilt. In songs like "What The Wall Said" and "I Stare At Floors," Casey plays the night-crawler at the bar you inch away from, waiting for him to take a swig so you can bolt for the door.


(Emphasis mine)

HNY!
It's like you put everything into a bottle inside itself.

Wow. It's hard to believe that a decade ago, Michael Dahlquist left us.

I try not to think about the tragedy and instead, embrace the memories and great music- what else can you do? They just kept on getting better- MD was the life force that propelled them forward.

I was lucky enough to see them in LA (2x) and the last show I saw was in Austin, TX; they played this song, which concluded in a wall of guitar chug. Michael was playing electric from behind the drum kit, Tim was on baritone, Andy on his regular guitar.

Mr. Dahlquist looked like there was no other place he'd rather be- eyes were closed, just completely immersed in the music. That's how I will remember him...
