I swear, Todd is a great storyteller, and his plane story is about the best ever. More Todd in the Q & A!

For those interested, the cool but very small record label "Hell Comes Home" (based in Ireland) is about to release a split 7'' with Thou and Great Falls, both covering a Shellac song: Wingwalker and Prayer To God.

That sounds like a cool 7''.

Personally, I thought this review was a bit "underwritten."


I do not have the energy or time for dipshits who like to hear themselves talk starring in self produced videos to discuss their ignorant take on the art of others. What's the basic jist of this idiot's review that I should be mocking him for?



Made it about 3 minutes, if he can't even properly quote the opening of "Squirell Song" he shouldn't be reviewing Shellac.

Oh, yeah, when did FM Steve become a Record Producer?

"Dude Incredible" kills it, my brothers, my other comrades.


HAND OVER HAND
OVER HAND
OVER HAND
OVER HAND


WOAH. A MAN THAT LISTENS TO HUNDREDS OF ALBUMS A YEAR MISQUOTED A SONG! STOP THE FUCKING PRESSES.

Shellac said
"This is a sad fuckin' song
We'll be lucky if I don't bust out crying "


He said
This is such a sad fuckin' song
We'll be lucky if I don't break out crying


Clearly this is such an egregious mistake that all of his rights to talk about Shellac albums must be revoked as was my rights to talk about Big Black cause I cant remember the exact weapons listed off in Deep Six.

Honestly I like Fantano. Disagree with his view on some albums including Dude Incredible (fucking great album first album I picked up when I bought my record player) but at least somebody has the balls nowadays to go out and give bad scores to albums.

On the actual topic of this thread NOT CRAP. Shellacs great the opening of "My Black Ass" is some of the best guitar playing Ive heard in my life.

Looks like April 1st with Mono at First Ave? Though I haven't seen it confirmed anywhere other than Mono's site so maybe it's an April Fool's Joke?

Shellac are playing Iowa City the night before, so it would make sense, geographically.

I'm driving to Chicago for their show at the end of March. I've never seen them, and since they only tour sporadically (and for that matter, I don't know if they've ever played in Missouri), I'm making the 7-hour drive. Hopefully the weather gods will be kind and not bestow any bad weather then.

Not crap. 'Prayer to God' is one of my favorite songs ever.
- "Whatever happened to that album?"
- "I broke it, remember? I threw it against the wall, and it like, shattered."

Dear Shellacs,

Your hour-long set on Saturday March 5th, opening for Neurosis in San Francisco, was wonderful, best I'd ever seen of you guys. Thanks for coming all the way out west for one show.

Cheers,
Tuolumne
