Date: Sat Jun 30 22:41:15 2001 Name: Ghost City/State/Country: Copy Center Suicide Comment: Erik, It’s Sat night and I’m just checking in for the first time in a few days, you should have emailed me about your show I had nothing to do last night. Dammit! Erik I don’t know if you are interested but Flickerstick is playing at the Norva on July 7th its next Sat. Ok don’t you people don’t laugh cause everyone’s got a couple of duds in their closet they tell noone about, but Marilyn Manson is playing at the Norva on July 10th and I got a ticket. I know, I know but I saw him in 1998 In RVa at the Landmark cause my girl at the time was in love with him and I said I wouldn’t go, so she bought me a ticket and begged, but to my shagrin the show rocked. I mean like scary goosebumps when he came out and the crowd went insane, so I’m gonna go watch this one the second time usually isn’t as good when it’s something you’re not THAT into, but hey, I live in Fucking Hampton Virginia OKAy! I’m hungry for anything. SHEESH!

Date: Sat Jun 30 18:26:14 2001 Name: Me City/State/Country: Bliss Comment: Well if you are looking for some hope in today’s music scene, just listen to Sianspheric’s latest The Sound Of The Colour Of The Sun. It soars a little more than SWD, vocals take a back seat to blistering guitar wall of sound, but it’s about as close to 1991 Oxford that I’ve heard in, well, about 10 years. It’s that good.

Date: Sat Jun 30 08:31:54 2001 Name: Chris City/State/Country: England Comment: I thought Flickerstick were quite cool, but why did that knobhead smash that Rickenbacker????? oh well, Stone Temple Pilots Astoria gig has been moved to Brixton academy – which is another piece of bad news………..

Date: Sat Jun 30 01:14:18 2001 Name: n30j3di City/State/Country: syd, oz Comment: ahhh yes, the early 90’s swd, ride, mbv, pixies, janes addiction, etc . guitar music just doesnt have the same vibe these days. (thank god for adam franklin still creating decent songs). i have found my new nirvana in the lush electronica of ambient drum & bass a la ninja tune.
Date: Fri Jun 29 20:55:47 2001 Name: Zach City/State/Country: just landed Comment: I remember 1991-1994 (5?) as the best musical years of my life. I was introduced to SWD and Ned’s around the same time as well. What an amazing time. You know, much of the music today is so uninspiring that it’s scary. I don’t seem to have the potent memories associated with the music of today, as I do with music of the early 90s. It’s like we have returned to the God awful mid to late 80s, with all of the spandex rock crap, just in another form. Don’t get me wrong, there is some good music today, but, when I hear Never Lose That Feeling, I literally get chills, and so many amazing times come back to me. Similar with songs like Homemade and On Fire from Sebadoh. I really miss those days. Anybody with me? Have a fantastic weekend everyone. Z
Date: Fri Jun 29 18:26:10 2001 Name: steve City/State/Country: austin, tx Comment: I was watching late night HBO last night and there was this strange movie about ravers and surfers in Cornwall. Anyway, half way through the movie i was surprised to hear ‘Duel’. Has anyone else seen the movie???? Do you know the name of it???? It was kinda surreal as I was in and out of sleep during it. Well it is friday and I am just getting off work. It has been a stressful week for me. I think I will have to roll one up and grab a twelve pack on the way home. As the say here in TX ‘yall have fun’ dont party to hard. Erik tell all the guys they still need to learn how to drink be for they can be real rock stars (specially Mr. Brown). later nigel
Date: Fri Jun 29 17:39:23 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Art, yes those were strange days indeed. It’s a shame that so many tragic things (Phillips’ suicide, Gator killing his girlfriend) came from such an amazing era. There was no money for skateboarders or punk rockers back then. It was done out passion, something that we all couldn’t not do. I once saw Thrasher (the skateboarding magazine) do an advertisement for Swervedriver. There was a picture of Adam playing live. He was wearing a Thrasher T-shirt. That, for me, was a great thing. Kind of like seeing your old school roots connecting with your modern day loves. It’s almost 6:00pm here, about time for me to close up the goddamn library and get ready for tonight’s Rock and Roll… Take care all, -E
Date: Fri Jun 29 16:32:10 2001 Name: art City/State/Country: Last time today Comment: Erik, I can’t believe Jeff Philips is dead. Much less that he killed himself!?! I used to skate in Louisiana in the early 80s and saw those big Texas Zorlac guys often. We skated all along the Gulf Coast back then and saw a lot of Jeff Phillips, John Gibson, Monte Nolder, etc… In a way, it doesn’t surprise me that one of these guys would take his own life. Skating then wasn’t the industry that it is today. At least not with cash sources like televised X-games and Playstation deals and what not. Those guys hustled and sweated and bled for every penny they earned. I heard that Mark (Gator) Rogowski became a born again christian, killed his girlfriend and dumped her body in the desert. What a weird time it was to be alive back then.
Date: Fri Jun 29 15:42:05 2001 Name: Art City/State/Country: Sweatin’ to the oldies Comment: Hairy, keep those tabs a’comin’. I’m going to set up a section just for them soon inhopes of inspiring a movement!
Date: Fri Jun 29 15:41:03 2001 Name: art City/State/Country: Boiling in New York Comment: Ian, I was first introduced to both SWC & Ned’s at the same time back in 1991/92. I was touring in Europe and this kid named Jimmy from Leeds who was following us (he may have been our only fan) kept going on and on about them. Needless to say, that Spring changed my life. Years later I managed to hunt down a copy of the Kill the Superheros t-shirt that he wore.
Date: Fri Jun 29 15:21:31 2001 Name: Dave City/State/Country: firstname.lastname@example.org Comment: Cool! Deep Seat is amazing! so when are you thinking of sending me them tabs mate? Anyway cya later people im off to gra canaria on the 9th of july so i wont be here for a week. (takin mezcal head with me he he) well cya later and i cant wait for them tabs! WOOOO! cya all..from dave
Date: Fri Jun 29 13:53:45 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Sounds like everyone is good to go for the weekend. Sam, I can sympathize for the loss of Jai. Some of the best days of my life were during the mid to late 80’s. I was young, dumb, loud, and obnoxious, constantly rocking out to Black Flag or the Misfits and skating every second I could. Back then skateboarding was more of an individualistic art. It took a lot of balls to skate back then because it wasn’t acceptable in the eyes of mainstream society. Nowadays skateboarding, Wheaties, and ESPN are interchangeable, not quite the same. Jeff Phillips, an amazing skater from Texas, and a driving force for skating in the 80’s, killed himself in 1993. I didn’t take that too well, so I definitely feel your loss… But on a less depressing note, my band is playing tonight in Norfolk, Va. Paul, come out if you can. Sorry I haven’t emailed you lately. Hope all you Scots are well (everyone else too, particularly the Oz sisters 😉 Steve, take care and I’ll speak to you soon. Have good weekends. -E
Date: Fri Jun 29 07:10:02 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Forgetfulldom Comment: Just forgot. Speaking of Ride, Q magazine has a feature on 1991 where they talk to Neds Atomic Dustbin, EMF and various other baggie types. My first gig was Neds Atomic Dustbin at Ayr Pavilion and it changed my life I tell you. Check it out. Wez’side.
Date: Fri Jun 29 07:04:09 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Yeh Zach & Haw. Just Landed is amazing. Did you read on the Toshack Highway site that they hired out a space suit to record it!! Fucking cool or what!! Steve, sorry about the sheppards pie experience. I would like to state it is an English invention and nothing to do with us Scotties. (Although we inflicted Haggis on the world so we would’nt feel left out on the crap traditional dish scene). The weekend is coming and it appears Im at a loss. All my mates are moving flat this weekend so what with them and the Haw there wont be a hire van left in Glasgow an Ive nae one to get drunk with. Big Auuuu please. Have a good one folks.
Date: Thu Jun 28 21:36:34 2001 Name: sam City/State/Country: Comment: sad news from canada….jai, of sk8 fame was killed last night while riding his vintage motorbike….he was instrumental in keeping the music and skate scene going in canada throughout the 80’s and 90’s….he will be missed
Date: Thu Jun 28 21:10:49 2001 Name: Hairy haw City/State/Country: Goin blank again Comment: No use-can’t sleep-too…hyper. Erik, If you could do that for me I would be eternally grateful. Two heads are better than one I reckon. I’m just gonna do the whole back catalogue if I can and send to Art an let him put it up. So if anyone else is up for a bit of tabulating action (sounds almost sexual) let us know what tunes yer doin so I can crack on to other one’s. Kik, dinnae fret hen, I’ve been in Aberdeen for a month and the people up here think ANYBODY from Glasgow speaks too fast. Took me three attempts to order a pint last week!On a completely unrelated subject- Anybody into Ride might want to check out the ticket to ride site-it’s had a facelift, lot’s of 1990-93 type stuff. I felt WELL nostalgic. Ahhh, wish I could still have long hair……
Date: Thu Jun 28 20:51:32 2001 Name: kik City/State/Country: Comment: sounds like a plan guys, but you’ll have to speak slower for me !(I cannae understand anything my scottie friends here say – they must think i’m the rudest or dumbest person alive… i simply smile and say “yeah” to everything they say…..) well another weekend is upon us all ! chin chin and all that, K

Date: Thu Jun 28 19:25:01 2001 Name: Haw reprise City/State/Country: Comment: Oh yeah, ‘Just landed’ is a fucking amazing choon too. I bought the album on the basis of that song. Like I needed an excuse.

Comment: Hurrah! hooray! party poppers goin’ off an’ such like-i move back to Glesga tommorow, into a new flat with considerably better amenities close by (decent pubs, pool, Insomnia for munchies at 5 am etc.) Dave-not doin’ too bad mate. Deep Seat is finished, and I did Son of Jaguar ‘E’ and Flaming Heart as well, so will mail em as soon as the move is finished (copies to Art too). Ian- right on, get the Kikster over to Jockland. Everybody else I know’s gone to Oz so we need to redress the balance here an’ one more Swervonian (WHERE did ye get that fae? sounds like a resident of a breakaway Balkan republic-Swervonia.) wouldn’t go amiss. Well, seeing as I’m all hyper now, off to bed I think. Long day tommorow or summit like that. Laters.
Date: Thu Jun 28 09:18:58 2001 Name: steve City/State/Country: austin, tx Comment: hello all, B-day #25 was good. saw some freinds’, from out of town, band play at a club here in austin. After work some of my work mates took me to an “english” pub to celebrate. I ordered their sheppards pie, big mistake. I’ll let my mum handle that from now on. They did have Stella on tap so I endulged in 8 (or was it 10) pints. It was a good night. Erik thanks for calling last night it was good to talk to you. Tell Dre canada sucks for me. later nigel
Date: Thu Jun 28 09:07:49 2001 Name: Zach City/State/Country: nola Comment: Hey, congrats, Ian! I like to hear such positivity. Does anyone else like Toshack’s “Just Landed” as much as I do? I’m listening to it right now, and really digging it. Good stuff! cheers, Zach
Date: Thu Jun 28 05:37:46 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgeee Comment: Good day swervonions!! I awoke today with joy in my heart and a spring in my step. At last my Swervedriver collection is compleat! My mate gave me Sandblasted on CD the other day to keep cause he had it on vinal too. ‘Saureet init. so apart from having Surf Twang and Magic Bus thats my lot. i even found a white label pressing of ‘Jesus’ the other day with the Dylans doing another Velvet Underground track on the other side for the Princely sum of 3 quid. Kik – yer more than welcome here in Scotland. I’ve been on about getting a Swervedriver convention together for ages. It’d be great. we could sit and drink tea and eat bikies and talk about the various magical things that make up the wonderfull world of Swervedriver…. Either that or go and get pished at the 13th Note, run over the tops of some cars and throw up outside Central Station infront of the cops.

Yes, VH1, the yuppie corporate rock channel & the “Bands on the Run” reality-TV trite. I do have to say, though, lately VH1, MTV2, and MuchMusic are the only channels that actually PLAY music (unlike MTV). I also dig Flickerstick…cool sound. Real english-rock, shoegazing, U2. Anything that is actually MUSIC!
Date: Tue Jun 26 20:14:59 2001 Name: J.T.

Date: Tue Jun 26 19:19:55 2001 Name: Fester City/State/Country: Toronto Comment: Toronto swervies-Do you remember the days when you could walk into the Sunrise on Younge (before the rennovations) and they would be jam-packed with swervie stuff? They had like 20 copies of EJR when you couldn’t get it anywhere else. They even displayed it for crying out loud! I assume that the guy who did the ordering for the store was one of us. Anyway, if it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have all the singles and tid-bits that I have now. God bless him. I also remember the days when the Jays would roll into Boston and Yankee-land and do some serious damage (Kind of like what happened to Boston this past weekend). Ahhhh, the good ol’days…

I really saw it all before coming so I wasn’t as blown away by the culture so much as I was by the pace and the activity. I live uptown and sit in fron of a computer all day. But that’s enough about me…

I picked up a village voice and I keep looking through it and I can’t believe there is something to do everynight of the week. Where Im from I only get to see about 1 act a year that really matters to me. I am curious about you. What do you do for a living? What part of the city do you live in? Are you from there or a transplant? I understand if you wish to remain anonymous. I am just curious about New York life and how one manages it.

Date: Mon Jun 25 19:15:28 2001 Name: art City/State/Country: LimeWire country Comment: CountFly, why do you say that LimeWire sucks? I’ve never had any problems with it and have always been able to find everything I’m looking for. It is certainly in its infancy as far as applications go, but definitely works like a charm. I always found lots of great stuff on AudioGalaxy but had too many problems with the Satellite and was unable to uninstall it completely. I do miss Napster, though. Being able to filter by bit/sampling rate was great! Speaking of Napster, I’m sharing the files there, too. I think they’re filtering songs by “swervedriver’ so you may only be able to find the Adam Franklin songs there.

It’s good to see Swervie stuff still active…it’s really tough to get any cd’s though. 99th Dream is now unavailable, at least here in Toronto. It’s the only album I haven’t purchased yet. That sucks! Took me awhile to find Raise but I got it. Just one more thing…Limewire sucks, Bearshare sucks too. Check out Audiogalaxy Satellite. I find it even better than Napster (before the legal shtick).

I’m sure he wouldn’t mind as long as it doesn’t end up as a “rare live cd” on eBay. n30j3di, Ended up I already had the Adam live MP3s, but I did download the Toshack stuff. All done now. I added three more tidbits from Adam’s NYC show, all recorded with the annotation feature of my digital camera. They’re less than 2 minutes long each and DON’T expect CD-quality sound. They’re good enough to give you an idea of what the rest of us heard. Again, they’re avainable via LimeWire & BearShare.
Date: Mon Jun 25 15:52:43 2001 Name: Sleepy City/State/Country: USA Comment: Can’t wait for tonight’s show. What is Adam’s policy on taping and trading, anyone know?
Date: Mon Jun 25 15:24:44 2001 Name: art City/State/Country: nyc – the place to be Comment: What a fuckin’ weekend! Started out Saturday night when myself and three friends hosted our monthly Rock Fight at my favorite NYC watering hole, the Ding Dong Lounge. A Rock Fight consists of any number of DJs, several hundred classic rock albums, and a whole lot of beer. In this case it was a whole lot of my home brew. We spun until around 7:30 the next morning. Ghost, someone did actually lay down Green Eyed Lady at one point! Anyway, there was a LOT of Stones being played. Sunday I slept for about 4 hours then hit the flea markets to look for more records. At 8:30 I hooked up with my mates and we headed to Irving Plaza to see Mogwai. This was the closest thing I’ve had to a religious experience since the Ejector Seat tour. Xmas Steps is one of the best live songs EVER! Got home around 1:30am, got up today at 9:30 with major ringing in my ears and immediately threw on CODY. Not a bad weekend. Not bad at all.
Date: Mon Jun 25 09:32:05 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Not to worry Sir Haw. Maby next time. My mate went to the Furries gig last night and said it was the best gig he’d seen, at which point I reminded him of the Swervie 99th dream tour that he saw and he stood corrected. They did a DJ set after on the Renfrew Ferry and had a competition to see who could find the stupidest tune apparently…which would have been nice. Good luck with the move.
Date: Mon Jun 25 06:49:09 2001 Name: The Mighty Haw City/State/Country: Havin’ Breakfast Comment: Hurray!! My new pad is decorated an’ I move at the weekend!! Huzzah, or something like that..Ian-never made it down chief. didn’t get out the GFT till midnight, and we were all knacked and still covered in paint so we had a quiet one. Still, the furries DVD was pretty good, if a little heavy on the subject matter. Reckon I’ll get the album when it’s out
Date: Mon Jun 25 06:32:21 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Speaking of distortion pedals, anyone noticed they’ve relaunched the classic Ibanez Tube Screamer!! ‘Supposed to be exactly to origional speck. ‘sauright init.
Date: Sun Jun 24 23:28:37 2001 Name: ghost (of Vanilla Jones) City/State/Country: Hamp’n Crunch Comment: Erik, your weekend sounds awesome, I myself have been in such a Stones faze lately, I would have loved to have sat in with you guys on somma that. I’m a little drunk myself on BUD ICE so I probably am not making sense. Fuck Mondays. Has anyone been watching VH1’s Bands On The Run? I really think Flickerstick’s singer has something. ALright you can all laugh at me now. HI KIK’s big sis. I was buying swim trunks in T.J. Max while Manfred Mann’s Blinded By the Light whaled on the MUZAK. Huh…how’s that for weekends? Speaking of green eyes how bout that SugarLoaf? Erik we should start a shoegazer thing. BIcycle!

Date: Sun Jun 24 19:18:08 2001 Name: Erik (Ghost Of Brian Jones) City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Man, it’s been a hell of a weekend. On Friday night my band played a set as the Rolling Stones for our singer’s wedding anniversary. I was Brian Jones. By the end of the night, after all the whiskey I consumed, I geniunely felt like Brian, that is, DEAD! It was so great to rock out songs like “Under My Thumb” and “Get Off My Cloud.” Last night, I went to this other club to see a friend’s band and the Romantics were part of the audience!! How weird is that?! By Romantics, I mean the 80’s rockers who had hits with “That’s What I like About You” and “Talking In Your Sleep”. I was introduced to their lead singer who seemed like a really nice guy, but he talked my ear off and I couldn’t for the life of me think of a single fucking thing to say to him. I felt like Chris Farley: “Ummm yeah, like, that was really cool when you guys, like, did that song, like, back in the 80’s.” Strange evening indeed. Steve, you know I’m a sucker for a good fuzz pedal. That would be amazing if you could send me one of your own construction. Anne, the Brown-eyed Oz girl, have fun helping Kik celebrate. Do you two live in the same city? If not, you’ll have to take part in some distant celebrating like the rest of us. I’ll definitely be raising a glass to Kikster and Steve on Tuesday. Hope all is well with the rest of you. -E
Date: Sun Jun 24 15:16:28 2001 Name: Chris City/State/Country: England Comment: i can’t get that limewire thing to work, or should i say download, it gets about 7 megs through and then it cocks-up. i think there’s something wrong with my computer.

Date: Sat Jun 23 11:50:32 2001 Name: steve City/State/Country: austin, tx Comment: Well its Saturday and I am stuck at work. I have a big project due for IBM and it is a little behind schedule, sucks. Erik I designed a distortion pedal the other day, for a laugh. I will start to put it together when I get this project out of the way. I kinda based off of a Big Muff, but with a few mods. Send me your address and I will send one to you. I also want to make a wah-wah pedal. I think it will be a little easier- it is just a tunable bandpass filter. I’ll have to wait and see. Later nigel
Date: Sat Jun 23 09:18:30 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Probably the pan pretty soon. Comment: Hairy Haw. Sorry I could’nt get a guesty last night for the gig. There were 4 bands on and they thought it was too much. Did you come down? We were all pretty done in from driving up from Manchester the night before. Good night though. Anyone heard anything about these Toshack Highway remixes mentioned a while ago?

No..I don’t have green eyes I have brown..Kris has told me a little about you too! Hope your doing well… Chris …cool…I think that the bass line was the best thing about old Duran John Taylor used to play it..He’s a legend? Anyway i don’t really like them that much not as much as i did when I was a teenager… Kris… Hope your well and yet again have a great B’day. We love you!!

Date: Fri Jun 22 19:50:51 2001 Name: Art City/State/Country: nyc Comment: Just a reminder. Adam’s live acoustic set (from Denmark) and most of the Swervie b-sides are available for download via the GNUtella network. You can use LimeWire, BearShare, or any other GNUtella client to download these songs. Just search for “Adam Franklin” or “Swervedriver” and your set.

Date: Fri Jun 22 09:36:11 2001 Name: est City/State/Country: Toronto Comment: hi everyone, feel bad because i posted a few times before but never introduced myself.

Keep em’ coming guys!! n30j3di, I’m in the process of downloading all right now. I’ll have them all by end of day. Zach, if you have LimeWire, BearShare, or any other GNUtella client you can download the live acoustic stuff starting tonight. Just search for Adam Franklin. Note: these are from the Copenhagen show, not the recent US tour. I’m still waiting to hear from TC about getting a copy of the NYC show. More later….
Date: Thu Jun 21 13:49:26 2001 Name: Dan City/State/Country: Chic-a-go-go Comment: From a gleaming corporate spire down in Chi-town…a co-worker just asked me “to lower it a bit”; “it” being the desktop CD rig I bought as a gift to myself for scoring a cush job downtown. The best part? The program was the demo version of “These Times”. I like the version on 99th Dream, but I prefer the solo on the demo. Dig it. Can’t wait for the bastard to go to his meeting. And Jez, you out there? Throuoghly enjoyed your response, and looking to pick yr brain some more if you have the time… drmcd

There’s 4 bands playing. 3 from Manchester where we’re playing tomorrow so it’ll probably start earlyish. Don’t know what time we’re on at but it should be later on. If you reveal your true identity I could get you on the guesty if you want. Oop. Plug coming on. Anyone from Manchester that sees this Terra Diablo play the Night and Day Cafe tomorrow (Thursday). Be there or..er..decide not to and ..um..just stay at home..drink tea…or something.

Art check yer mail ‘cos ‘These times’ is on the way. Dave-sit tight am at work on ‘Deep Seat’ but it’s taking longer than I thought(five hundred guitar parts in that song to transcribe). Ian-I is agreein’ wholeheartedly with thae sentiments an’ that. Get thee Swervies to Jockland or The Big Man willnae like it.
Date: Tue Jun 19 18:01:53 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Yeah Steve, Jimmy and I were thinking of going back to Norfolk to see the Bad Brains, but figured it wouldn’t top the Va. Beach show back in the day. That was a euphoric evening. I guess now that a Butthole Surfer is doing sound at the Fly, bands wont have to worry about being “too loud and offensive”. Christ, what a joke… Steve, did I give you that Skywave CD when you were last in town? You would love them, good noisy feedback over blissful pop tunes, total Pyschocandy-era sound. Here’s their link in case I forgot to give you the album. www.killerrockandroll.com They just recently put out a 7″ that had a cover of Sunny Sunday Smile by MBV. The resemblance is uncanny. Have you been diggin’ the other CD I made for you? You’ll have to email me your address so I can hook you up with the B-sides stuff. Deep Twang, aka Deep Seat, is amazing… Hope all’s well with the rest of you. -E

Date: Tue Jun 19 13:11:14 2001 Name: steve City/State/Country: austin, tx Comment: saw the bad brains last night. they rocked. played old stuff. the set was not even an hour though. i kinda feel ripped off after paying $20. it’s like some big tease. they started with sailin on and finished with i against i. the opening bands were terrible. Erik, it was no where near as good as the Abyss show in va beach. by the way jeff pinkus (butthole surfers) is doing sound at the Red Eyed Fly, now. well later, nigel

Date: Mon Jun 18 19:03:24 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Steve!! I think this was the first and only time that you and I didn’t see a Swervediver performance together, but you were there in spirit, bro. Haha, the Red Eyed Fly is still looking out for us, eh? Fuck ’em… I don’t think I have your phone number in Austin. Email it to me when you get a chance: firstname.lastname@example.org It’s a shame that Andre’s up in Canada. In just one week, the unfortunate schmuck missed seeing his three favorite bands, the Black Crows, Oasis, and Adam/Swervedriver. He’s going to be kicking himself for awhile over this one. It’s just like that time back in ’96 when he refused to go see Sebadoh and Elliot Smith because he was “too tired”. What a wimp, Elliot Smith became another one of his faves and he could have seen him play just down the street from his fucking apartment, haha. Oh well, this just gives me more things to hold over his head. What are friends for? It sounds like you’re doing well in Texas, man. We sure miss you here in old Virginny. Take care Nigel. -E
Date: Mon Jun 18 18:15:30 2001 Name: steve City/State/Country: Austin, Tx Comment: Hairy Haw. I also have those tunings, but they are at my Mum and Dad’s house. They live an hour away and I useually go home for sunday dinner depending on what time my soccer match is. I will post them this weekend if you dont get around to it. Erik, give me a call and let me know how that show was. Oh, I havent been back to the Red Eyed Fly since we demo’d their bathroom. I think they still have that reward for our capture. Later, nigel
Date: Mon Jun 18 17:44:16 2001 Name: The Other Eric City/State/Country: DC Comment: A song that was played at the DC show that no one has mentioned was a cover from a band called Libido. Played it just before “The Other Jesus” I believe.
Date: Mon Jun 18 16:07:56 2001 Name: Hairy Haw City/State/Country: Ecosse Comment: Art-Erik’s right about the geezer on Ajay’s old site, He also had a few of the mad tunings for some of the songs. I’ve got it printed out somewhere so if he can’t be found, I’ll whack it down on notepad and send you that as well if you like.What HAS happened to Ajay? I can see cobwebs gathering on Swervie.com
Date: Mon Jun 18 14:13:05 2001 Name: steve. City/State/Country: jersey… Comment: steve (the other one… from austin): you are in for a treat with tortoise! i saw them about a month ago and it was fucking great! they played stuff from all the albums and varied each tune quite a bit. more and more they are turning into one of my favorite bands… ERIK: nick cave played here a couple of months ago with members of the dirty three in his backing band. if that wasn’t enough, LOW was opening. and tickets were like 40 bucks so i couldn’t afford to go (damn these medium sized venues!!!) hope you enjoy it. oh how i would love to hear him do a live version of ‘The Good Son’……………..
Date: Mon Jun 18 14:04:42 2001 Name: steve City/State/Country: Austin, TX Comment: Saw Magwai on Sat……Amazing. Soul Brains (Bad Brains) tonight. Last Tuesday was Cold Play, also a good one. Tortouse is coming up. Gotta love Austin for the music thing. Hopefully Adam will make it out here. Later Swervies
Date: Mon Jun 18 12:32:03 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Are you all fans of Nick Cave? On his website it says that he’s coming to DC later this year, but I haven’t seen any listings from the club or ticketmaster. He’s most likely going to be hitting NYC oncemore, so it looks like I might be making the trip up there. Are you making a tab link, Art? There was a guy on AJ’s site years back that had an amazing ear for transcribing Swervedriver’s music. He figured out “Never Lose that Feeling” note for note. Maybe he could be found through AJ? I don’t know… Anyway, the site’s looking good and the Adam performances seem to have pumped a lot of enthusiasm into our ever-eager-for-Swervedriver blood. Hopefully all the other band members are happy gents these days. It would be amazing to see what kind of music they all would write on their own …(but of course this does not mean that I want less Swervedriver)…

Date: Fri Jun 15 16:23:50 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Sorry about the grammatical error. Actually, I can’t see “everyday” rock and roll saving anyone’s life…:) I promise this the last time I post today. I’m just bored to tears at work right now. Take care all, -E

I’m puting together a CD for Adam that has some other live/bootleg stuff to give him at the Fez show. It would be nice to include last night’s show.
Date: Fri Jun 15 15:08:58 2001 Name: Hairy Haw City/State/Country: the ‘deen. Comment: Sorry Dave when I sent that earlier post being the fool that I am I’d clicked the wrong buttons and the tabs never got sent. That should be them now. Anybody else wanting reasonably accurate tabs for 99th, Duel and the bass for Blowin’ cool-give us a shout. Except people who are actually swervies obviously.
Date: Fri Jun 15 14:04:40 2001 Name: danny City/State/Country: dc Comment: Set list for DC is close Erik – it started with Juggernaut…the Only Ones song is Another Girl, Another Planet. Don’t forget the comma in Everyday, Rock and Roll saved my life…otherwise is it has a differnt (kind of amusing) meaning!
Date: Fri Jun 15 14:04:05 2001 Name: TC City/State/Country: NYC Comment: Last night’s show at CB’s was good, although too short. Where was Satansville? Anyhow, i’m not sure if any of you saw me in the front right with a mic in my hand. hehe. Yes…I actually have quite a decent recording of last night’s show and i’m ready to trade….
Date: Fri Jun 15 13:50:53 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Damn Art! Once again, you and I miss one another by ten minutes. I forgot that Adam said that about the wine tasting. I thought he said Steve was doing that and Jimmy was going to school? I don’t know… Jesus!! How’s that for gossip!! I hope none of these guys worry that we’re going to end up stalking them!!
Date: Fri Jun 15 13:46:57 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Hello again, Danny! Good to see you here. Yeah, I’m going to try to make that Fez show as well. Where in the hell is it though? The last time I was in NYC was to see Swervedriver at Tramps, so it’s been awhile. I’m going to attempt to remember the set list of the DC performance for you guys. It’s something like this: the Hitcher, Juggernaut Rides, the Other Jesus, Jesus (the Velvet Underground), Last Train to Satansville, They’re Hangin’ Me Tonight (traditional country song, I think), Planet Girl (I think that’s what it’s called, it’s a Lonely Ones tune), Willing to Wait (off Sebadoh’s Harmacy record), Out in the Streets (the Shangri La’s), Everyday Rock and Roll Saves my Life (truly amazing song), I Hate Rock and Roll (Jesus and Mary Chain). I think that’s it, there may have been one or two more that I just can’t remember right now. Good times indeed… Hopefully everyone else will be able to get a taste of the performances in one way or another. Have good weekends everyone… -E
Date: Fri Jun 15 13:32:27 2001 Name: art City/State/Country: nyc Comment: Last night was great. Thanks Adam! I took a few snaps and even managed to record some shoddy 2-minute excerpts via my digital camera’s note taking feature. i’ll post them here as soon as I get it all sorted out. The show was amazing — especially I Hate Rock n’ Roll. I felt that one, too. So not to be a gossip hound but here’s what I got from Adam as per Swervedriver: Steve was taking a film course or something like that. Jimmy has dozens od half-filled wine bottles all over his flat as the result of a wine-tasting course, possibly with the intent of opening a wine shop??? Jez is moving, playing golf and mixing live swervedriver footage for an official SWD Live release. There was no difinitive statement on the future of Swervedriver. But anyone there last night–or at any of these live accoustic shows–knows that the material is timeless, in whatever form it comes to us. I think the band must know that too.
Date: Fri Jun 15 13:12:57 2001 Name: Fester City/State/Country: Toronto Comment: Adam, if you don’t come to Toronto, my Cowboy Junkies CD gets it! Is it me, or is Badly Drawn Boy that good? Just heard Idlewild’s “No Discourage”. Very cool. Unless someone says otherwise, I’m off to score. All this talk of Ride reminds me of the summer of 92′. A lot of great music floating around then. Cheers!
Date: Fri Jun 15 12:50:59 2001 Name: JJ City/State/Country: Comment: i was unbelievably impressed last night. The only thing that pissed me off was the third song when the mic started flipping out cause that was arguably the best song of the entire set. (Was that a cover? I didn’t recognize it.) After we left, my girlfriend turned to me and said, “Wow, he’s bitter.” I think it was the “I Hate Rock and Roll” cover that convinced her. Yeah, you could tell he really got into that song. It made me wonder what’s going to become of swervedriver. Has the music industry been so tough on them that they won’t even bother? God I hope not. One thing i know for sure: I’ll be at Fez’s. I only wish i could be going to see swervedriver instead. Hopefully, at Fez’s he’ll cover “Last Train to Satansville.”

Date: Fri Jun 15 11:36:24 2001 Name: danny City/State/Country: dc Comment: no offence taken. I don’t have any videos (except for never lose that feeling)…but I do have a handful of tapes from the first U.S. tour, the japanese tour and an EU radio broadcast. A friend of mine is going to help me put them on CD. As for Adam’s set…the show in DC was amazing…the other Jesus, Juggernaut, Jesus and many others, defy desciptioin. I told Adam to make sure he starts taping these sets. Unbelievable.

Date: Fri Jun 15 10:04:19 2001 Name: Andrew City/State/Country: Fort Lauderdale Comment: Danny…Hey, no disrespect to your performance!!! You kicked arse for only 24 hour notice!!!I really enjoy seeing triumph over adversity. There definately are some great moments on that bootleg tape. I’ve been in those kind of situations before, and all you can do IS do your best. Also, you’re right. There are some major sound problems on that tape…feedback,etc. What a nightmare! Tell you what, though. If you’ve seen all my nagging and annoying posts, I trade videos. I’d love a copy of your better performance. E-mail me at:AndrewSimmons@netzero.net
Date: Fri Jun 15 09:57:46 2001 Name: steve. City/State/Country: jersey… Comment: oh my goodness, adan played so beautifully last night! i think the highlight of the show had to be sci-flyer. it was so different from the original that when adam started singing i think every one in the room was like “i know these lyrics… what song is it…. OH MY GOD!!!” it was so beautiful. ART: sorry i didn’t find you. i forgot what you said you’d be wearing. well, there’s always mogwai and adam at fez (where the hell is fez???) and no. i did not get any radiohead tickets. it’s enough to make a man cry…

Date: Fri Jun 15 09:21:51 2001 Name: est City/State/Country: Toronto Comment: Danny, I remember reading your hilarious recount of getting ready for those Swervedriver shows in the Information Network – drumming on the plane and getting in trouble. Does anyone know what happened to that Swervedriver fanzine and Clare. I lost touch.
Date: Fri Jun 15 09:16:49 2001 Name: Sir Hairy of Haw City/State/Country: Aberdeen (rather be in the southern hemisphere, at least the weather’s probly better) Comment: Fester-i hear ye. Don’t know about the Mark/Andy/Idha thing-basically Mark got a bit pissed off with Anders as he was spending all his time with his new girlfriend/future wife on the Going Blank Again tour. That and Andy going REALLY retro in his music and kind of taking a more frontline role when Mark (to the media) was previously thought of as head shed in Ride songwriting-wise. Andy felt he wasn’t getting enough credit and that’s pretty much what marked the beginning of the end. Not quite a full on soap opera but there is a hint of Eastenders in it.I dunno-they were never really the same for me after carnival of light came out. Annyywwaay…. Dave-check yer e-mail again-more tabs done.
Date: Fri Jun 15 08:52:49 2001 Name: danny City/State/Country: dc Comment: Adam suggested I check out this site…looks like I jumped in just in time. Actually…the truth of the matter is this. Phil Ames rang me on Sunday night asking if I could be in Vancouver for a show on Tuesday – replacing Graham for the rest of the U.S. tour. That gave me 24 hourse to learn all the material on the set list. When I arrived in Vancouver there was no rehearsal and only a very brief line check. Yeah…rave down gave me problems…but so did the sound system and a drum riser that came apart at the seams. Anyway…no excuses. Two nights later we played in Seattle and the show went much better. Of all the f*ckin’ shows on the tour to be bootlegged…it had to be that one. Oh well. I have the tapes of the Seattle show…and the difference is night and day.
Date: Fri Jun 15 07:15:58 2001 Name: Andrew City/State/Country: FTL Comment: Ghost…Have that bootleg and I think it is funny what Adi says. You forgot the last thing he said, though, cause he really is stressed during the whole show with Danny. “Maybe we’ll buy you a T-shirt or something.” Ouch. That had to hurt. Then Danny didn’t know “Ravedown” either and they stop three times and Jimmy has to show Danny how it goes. You gotta love that kind of stuff. The show must go on…

Date: Fri Jun 15 01:23:55 2001 Name: GarlicSoul City/State/Country: Comment: Wow, thanks for sharing your reviews of Adam’s recent gigs…I was hoping to hear what they were like. Sounds like it was a special show to see…makes me ashamed for being too lazy to drive over to Los Angeles! What Sebadoh song did he cover???
Date: Thu Jun 14 21:34:55 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: But you’re here in spirit kikster, you know that… Didn’t Andy Bell’s wife leave him for Mark Gardener? (or was it vice versa?) Sorry to ask such a soap opera-esque question… Someone told me that later on this summer Radiohead is playing in Centerfield, Va. and it’s the only east coast date they play. I’m not too big of a Radiohead fan, but I heard Sigur Rosse is touring with them. I’d love to see those cats. Do any of you know anything about this? Paul, yeah that was a trip meeting Danny in the bathroom line after we were just talking about him. He said he’d email me info about his new band when it gets underway, should be cool. As a one time Swervedriver drummer, Danny sure has some hella credentials. JJ, yeah “Satansville” lent itself very well acoustically. Adam played it right after playing “Jesus” by the Velvets. Too funny. Hope you New Yorkers are enjoying the show every bit as much as we did. Take care all… -E

Date: Thu Jun 14 17:19:03 2001 Name: JJ City/State/Country: Comment: i know it’s rather late, but i’d like to request “Last Train’s to Satansville.” I’m going to CB’s tonight and I’ve always thought that that song in particular would be well-suited to an acoustic version. (Great lyrics.) Anyway, Adam may not read this before tonight, but i thought i’d try. Later.

Date: Thu Jun 14 16:27:15 2001 Name: Ghost E. Onassis City/State/Country: Hampton, Virginia, USA Comment: Erik, I told Ron what that dude Danny was telling us about being a part-time swerve and Ron said he thought I had a boot video with Danny in it and sure enough 1992 the Raise tour and DAnny is on the drums and Adi even introduces him in the middle of the set and says, “our drummer went AWOL, so we’d like to thank DAnny from D.C. for filling in on 24 hours notice, we think he’s doing a good job” then they go into Deepseat and Danny has the tempo all wrong so Adam follows the drum’s lead to compensate, it’s pretty cool. I was actually depressed the day after the metro show because , well…it was all over. Dude we were like little girls on the way home after the show saying, “did you see the way Adam did this”? and “Did you hear that change then and his voice omigod it’s like butter”. I think I might have to be like a Deadhead the next time Swerve is on tour and follow them to every show cause that shit made me feel real good. Still Buzzin, G.O.
Date: Thu Jun 14 11:28:02 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Man, it was absolutely intoxicating seeing Adam perform the other night. It was even more amazing than I thought it would be. I have always recognized Adam’s genuis, but after seeing what he is capable of doing by his lonesome, I was even more blown away. I doubt there is anyone else in this world who could play traditonal country, the Velvet Underground, the Only Ones, Sebadoh, the Jesus and Mary Chain, the Shangri La’s, revamped Swervdriver, and have all of it make perfect sense. His new songs are absolutely beautiful as well. Adam definitely has his own musical identity, not to mention his guitar playing and singing are flawless. A good friend of mine, who is an avid Swervedriver hater, went to the show with me, and even HE was impressed with the performance. I also finally got to meet “the Ghost” in person (whattup Paul). I hope the rest of you Swervies who weren’t able to catch any of these dates are able to do so soon. Thank you for the music, Adam …”you know, it was all right”… “Everyday, Rock and Roll is saving my life”…

Comment: hey swervies! and especially Jez, the guy who talked to me a long time ago. i’ve been on one of the pages devoted to SWD and posted a message about a sad fact that it is impossible to buy any albums of the band here. and Jez replied! he said i should talk to the folks in A&M. i talked to the guys in zerohour and they’ve sent em 3 cds for free (99 dream and radio versions of “wrong treat” and “99 dream”)! i still remember that day as one of the best days in my life! keep it up guys! and, finally, send your cds here! still cant find “mezcal head” in this music rathole… =(
Date: Sat Jun 9 04:30:05 2001 Name: Bertrand City/State/Country: Liège\Belgium Comment: Mike, can you tell more about Hartridge’s album? Record Company, style, and did he employed his name as the artist? And what you think about it?
Date: Sat Jun 9 04:05:19 2001 Name: GarlicSoul City/State/Country: there Comment: Oh, and Kermit The Frog, Kik??? Haha! The Not The Same track off of Where You Been might be able to fit that description! haha. Hey, where can I get that video compilation that RudAwakening put together? I need some live Swerve footage!
Date: Sat Jun 9 03:58:49 2001 Name: GarlicSoul City/State/Country: here Comment: No, Erik…Ron Asheton wasnt performing at my Fog show, either. At first, I was very disappointed, but now I think that I actually preferred it that way. The reason is because those shows with Ron Asheton seemed to cut the Mascis sets pretty short, so they could end with a bunch of Stooges covers. It was cool to see/hear the handful of Stooges covers that Watt sang, but I also wanted to get as many Mascis and Dinosaur songs, as possible. That might not have made too much sense.
Date: Fri Jun 8 23:43:11 2001 Name: mike City/State/Country: boston,ma. Comment: hi folks! has anyone heard jimmy hartridge’s album “all said and done”? ive had it on backorder now for 2 months. bye:)
Date: Fri Jun 8 18:21:46 2001 Name: Steve City/State/Country: Austin, TX Comment: Hello fellow Swervies. Just got turned on to this site (thanks Rugg). I use to frequent AJ’s site but it has been dead for some time now. Good to get caught up with what the Swervies have been up to. Is there anyone near Austin on this mailing list. I just moved here and am looking for some desent people to drink with. Last time I went out I almost got into a fight with this Irish fuck who was talking shit about english football. He said it was boring. I guess he missed the UEFA cup final. What a season for Liverpool. Sorry, I know a few of the guys from Swervedriver are Arsenal supporters.
Date: Fri Jun 8 14:54:11 2001 Name: Dan City/State/Country: DC Comment: I think there’s two separate shows. Doors open at 7 and Adam goes on fairly early..8 or 9
Date: Fri Jun 8 10:59:01 2001 Name: “New” Eric City/State/Country: DC Comment: It looked like Adam is headlining. If he’s not there is something seriously wrong. I’ve never heard of the other bands either? I dont know if they are local or what?
Date: Fri Jun 8 09:19:41 2001 Name: steve. City/State/Country: jersey… Comment: anyone see adam in hoboken last night? regretfully, i missed it. stuff came up at the last minute that i just couldn’t ignore, but he’s playing two shows in NYC. does anyone know if we have to get tickets or do we just show up?

Date: Fri Jun 8 06:41:46 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Lord Ibanez. Im pretty interested in your Marshall. How much are you selling it for? I’ve got a JCM 800 Lead series but the clean tone on it is’nt that good. One of the other guys in my band uses a 1971 Artist and the clean channel is amazing. I could use a line splitter for them both. so if you could get in touch that would be magic. e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. and let us know a price. If you want any copys of Swervedriver stuff that you had nicked just give us a shout too. Hairy Haw. Dont stand too close too the buildings up their or you’ll come back glowing!!

Date: Thu Jun 7 20:53:08 2001 Name: Old Erik (with a “k”) City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Welcome home Eric! Very nice name. Is Adam the headliner of this show? I’ve never heard of the other bands, but they all have really lousy names (then again, how good of a name is “Dragstrip Syndicate”?) Paul, how in God’s name do you owe money to a former employer? Did you take advantage of the employee discount? I know I would. I just found out earlier that one of my guitar heroes, Randy Holden, is still alive!! I thought he had been dead since the early 70’s, but he’s still rocking out!! Sorry, had to share my excitement there. Aiight y’all (with all this regional slaing bouncing all about, I had to include some as well) Have good weekends. -E
Date: Thu Jun 7 17:22:34 2001 Name: Eric City/State/Country: DC Comment: I dont have tickets because I bought them online and they will be at will call that night. I saw three other bands listed with Adam and the times for the show were something like 8:30-11:55. I also just listened to the acoustic show and was blown away. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the swervedriver songs without the wall of sound that goes along with them but stripped down to an acoustic guitar they are beautiful. Song three was my fave I think (sorry, bad with song titles). Adam. How long of a set are you going to play? Just wanted to say this guestbook rules. I feel right at home here. Eric
Date: Thu Jun 7 17:06:19 2001 Name: Ghost E. Onassis City/State/Country: Shaqhater, VA Comment: Adam, I listened to your acoustic show that you had on that website a few months ago, actually I ran a line to my stereo and taped it and have listened to it many times over (Harry & Maggie kills me) and I don’t know if its cause it’s running through a soundboard, but the audience is dead silent. So I was wondering what the etiquette is like at your acoustic show cause I want to sing along man, just belt em out loud with you. Also, I have seen many home made videos of Swerve, and I was wondering what your personal rules are to videotaping and or making photographs. I don’t have a video camera, I am just curious. Thanks, we love ya.
Date: Thu Jun 7 16:50:13 2001 Name: Ghost City/State/Country: Iverson, Virginia Comment: KIKster, what in the name of the Slaughter House are you talking about? New Eric, what time is the Franklin show on your tickets? The metro is still advertising three other bands that aren’t Mister Franklin on that same day, and we don’t know when to show up, we’ll just have to come early in the day. We’ll camp out and make signs and people will have to ask and then we will spread the Gospel of The Other Jesus. Old Erik, I got a letter from Tower the other day and I was all like, “oh let’s see which of these little girlies wrote to me heh heh heh”, but then like Tower was all like, “Dear Mister Ghost you owe us 100.00! Pay up or die dipshit.” So then I was like “oh, damn that’s fucked”.

Date: Thu Jun 7 11:49:52 2001 Name: steve. City/State/Country: jersey… Comment: lord ibanez… the same thing happened to me a few years ago. my dad’s car was stolen and i happened to be driving it that day and when they found the car everything in it was gone, including about fifty of my CDs (raise and 99th dream included) and the spare tire. since it was my dad’s car he had homeowner’s insurance that covered all the crap that was in it and i totally overvalued the cd’s that were taken and ended up buying about 60 or 70 new cd’s to replace the 50 that were stolen… it’s a nice little scam. you should give it a try…

Date: Wed Jun 6 12:22:51 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Garlic Soul, Did J Mascis have Ron Asheton playing with the band when you saw that show? I got to see Mike Watt with him, which I have to say was fucking great because he belted some furious Stooges covers, but I would have loved to have seen the man himself performing with J. Ah, the feeling of being lost in Drones… I think all of us here know it all too well. I saw the Black Crowes and Oasis last night. I don’t think I’m an arena-rock show kind of guy. Just give me a divey club with some loud, in-your-face gits and I’m happy (Of, course acoustics are great too, next week man, next week…) Hope all is well, Baby Blues. -E

Date: Tue Jun 5 09:01:00 2001 Name: GarlicSoul City/State/Country: the desert Comment: Thanks for pointing out that Boston documentary, Paulo. I just saw a recent Mascis gig. Wow. Quite an experience to see him live. Sound waves have physical effects on the body…like those experiments that I read about where they tried to discover the frequency where something (even a human body) would break down. Like how certain singers can shatter glass, if they hit the right pitch. Anyway, I could definitely feel Mascis rearranging my molecules, with his guitar. It was amazing. I am loving his new album, too. Especially, that song Ammaring. There’s this part in the third solo, where his guitar sounds like some huge bird. It just feels like my heart is being pulled out of my body, through my stomach, at that point. hahah! A pleasant image, to be sure! Man, I’m so tempted to make the drive over to L.A. to catch Adam’s acoustic set. I know it will be memorable. Of course, I have become much too lazy, so I will probably just sit at home. shawnte

Date: Tue Jun 5 04:22:49 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Las Galsgos Comment: I think we should all pull together and get copies of all Sir Lord of Ibanez’ old Swervie tunes to him. No one should have to suffer such an savage loss. Even if he does like spikey guitars. RISE ABOVE THE NEDS!! BE AS ONE.!!! WE SHALL BITE THEM ON THE FEATURES etc, etc

Date: Sun Jun 3 19:05:37 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Adam, that would be absolutely incredible to hear your rendition of “Keep Hangin’ On”. “2541” would be quite a surprise as well. That’s great that Bob Mould got to see Swervedriver’s U.S. debut. I’m sure he felt something like a proud father hearing you guys. It’s a shame that two of the greatest songwriters from that generation, Bob and Grant, no longer communicate. The other night I couldn’t resist asking Grant if he and Bob were cool with one another. He said, “Cool is just the word I’d use” then he winked. Oh well… I shall be seeing you in Washington D.C. on the 12th, Mr. Franklin. I am so looking forward to it. Take care, -E

Date: Sat Jun 2 11:33:16 2001 Name: Andrew City/State/Country: Ftl. Comment: Hey, Adam. Good thing you dig The Lemonheads, too. I always thought your voice sounded like Evan Dando’s on Swervedriver’s “A Change is Gonna Come” and “Out”. Not on too many other songs, though. Just an observation. Hope you come to the good old Southern USA at some point. Andrew.
