The new album is really great. Seems to have elements of all of Froberg’s and Reis’s bands, both current and historical. I’m enjoying it very much.

That's from the Michigan Fest 2002 documentary. I was at that show!

The whole thing is here:

Hey, there's some great Sweep the Leg Johnny footage in there!


Holy shit! I’ve been looking for this for ages. I remember watching it years and years ago. The STLJ footage is so good and so is the Milemarker footage.

EDIT: And the Oxes stuff!

I was dead centre with another FM who agreed that the guitars were just one big bunch of mids. Could barely hear Reis' sweet, sweet lead.
I guess we could've moved but that's the trouble with gigs: once the gig starts you're pretty much stuck.

Thought it was excellent with the added drummer duo. It was a great show, I really enjoyed it. I wish all gigs were at least that fun.

it was too cold to wear the orange shellac shirt!!!!
also, I was upstairs during the show.

luckily Gar Wood doesn't use his E string a lot. Le Romandie has quite a problem with low frequencies!

nice place with nice people, though.

OH! ok. I thought it was him hitting the open E string. anyway, the first time that sound kicked in at the end of the first song I thought that this will be a terrible show, as everything in the room started to tremble. aside from that, the sound was pretty good.

i too saw the Hot Snakes in a disco. it sounded great up by the stage (usually does) and horrible everywhere else.

were i doing sound for a rock band in a disco, first thing I would do is turn the subs off. second thing would be to turn the tweeters off.

then turn up the guitars and bass. put the kick, snare and vox through the mains. wish the monitor mix guy good luck.

boom. done.

I just saw them in a small ass room in Houston. They were amazing and promised not to come back for a long time.

If any of you *awesome* people are catching any more of the Snakes shows on the current jaunt and think you'd get a kick out of buying the tour only 7" and posting it all the way to Ireland, well, that would a massive delight!
