Comment: I told Jez that I thought Graham did an excellent job playing the drums on their version of “Jesus”. He looked at me and said..”Uh, that was me playing on that song.” I felt like an idiot…

Comment: ..Right on Tuomas…The guitar playing in Duress is up there too. When I saw them play that song in D.C. in ’98, I turned around to look at the crowd and evryone’s eyes were closed as they swayed to the music. It was very hypnotic and very beautiful.

Comment: J Nevada, you really got a good taste, the solo as well as the whole song is the reason why I started listening to the Swervies fulltime…

Comment: ..Jez once told me that his favorite tune that the band has ever done is “Bubbling Up”, that was cool to hear because that song is great…

Comment: hey! i hope everyone here has checked out adam’s toshack highway project and the’s certainly a different kind of beast but all of you here saying you’re waiting for the next swervies release will certainly find the same soul and guts as in the best swervedriver material and it’s a beautiful signpost to the future….

Comment: I hope the next album will be more ” Never lose that feeling ” orientated. Raise is a classical album.

Comment: Well, It seems we’ve got Jez and Adam on here already. Now if only we can get Steve and Jimmy to post, I’d say we’ve got a pretty good start. 😉

Comment: Santa’s village, wheew what a limbo. The goddamn place hasn’t made any profit ever since it was started… But to stay on the topic, I certainly hope that swervies are not going to follow the route that My Bloody Valentine set (finnisign the album only to see that it’s never published)… Hoping for the best still.

Comment: I really love their misic. A solid content, with an elusive sense of soul and guts. The hairs go up on the back of my neck when I listen to them. My spine tingles.

Comment: Swervedriver is one of the most underated bands in the world. Please come out with a new album soon. Save us from the banality of top-40-corporate-infested music.

Comment: lol @ Tuomas.. yeah, but u guys have Santa’s Village ;). Anyways, I was privy to some Swervie info a few months back, where Jez said after the solo stuff was done, he’d try round up the good ppl for a jam & a new album, but it was only an indication, not a definite. Jez also admitted to hording a fair amount of Swervie demo & live / rare stuff and said he was thinkin about piling it together for some kind of release (possibly internet only). Like I said, that was months ago & i’ve seen or heard nothing on the subjects since.

Comment: Speak for your own Art… I’m stuck here in rock’n’rollforsaken Finland and none of the greatest bands of this 90’s indie-era ever laid their foot on our ground. fook. 🙁

Comment: Jez makes no mention of a SWD album or tour. That sucks. But we will most likely at least see Jez, Steve and Adam on tour in their various “own things” like Pig Orchestra and Toshack. Better than nothing…

Comment: Upon a second reading, Jez’ reference to a new album is ambiguous: is this a SWD or “Pig Orchestra” CD?? Is there any definite news on a new Swervedriver proper album? Now I am really depressed… 99 th dream was years ago…… we need some new tunes!

Comment: Hey, did everyone miss the fact that Jez mentioned a new SWD album in a few months followed by a tour…. that news just about made my year! Toshack is brilliant in case you have been holding out, a must have. Hey Kristy in New Orleans, email me as I am close by! Jerry.

Comment: Hey kids, Hope all is well with everyone. I was just writing to let you guys know that as of today, July 5th, the 7″ split that the fellas put out with Sophia is currently available on Ebay. As you all probably know, this is kind of hard to come by and has what might be one of their best tunes on it…(Why say Yeah) Just thought I’d spread the word so some lucky Swervie could end up with it. Good luck and take care…
