Or how to play the edit(?) in the break of “Why Say Yeah”. A SWD tribute band? Hmmm….. Let’s hope the band can stave that off with a new record. Well, it’s off to score provisions and smiles for a Labor Day weekend….

Date: Fri Aug 31 14:22:45 2001 Name: art City/State/Country: nyc Comment: Well, the long-awaited Guitar Tabs section is finally under way. Thanks to Dave and Hairy. Keep ’em coming, guys and I’ll keep posting them. Hopefully we can inspire armies of future Adam/Jimmy clones!
Date: Fri Aug 31 13:43:58 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Ian, I think you’re referring to the Nuggets compilation. The long awaited Volume 2 just came out within the past year. It’s dedicated soley to British garage rockers whereas the first volume was Americans. Amazing music regardless of which side of the Atlantic it was concevied. That’s great that you’ve got a 6 degree speration from Marc Bolan!! I would be heaven if I could feast my eyes on his guitar and amp. I really get into things like that ’cause I’m a total rock geek. When I was Memphis recently, I was like, “Oh my God!! Sam and Dave, Otis Redding, and Elvis probably played on this street a million times back in the 60’s!!” My girlfriend just laughed at me the whole time. Amyway, it’s really good to know there’s a Swervehead teaching music technology over in Europe. I rest a little easier at night now… Paulo, I hate to admit it, but I’ve really lost track of the Lily’s releases. The last one I purchased was a purple and black cover that had the song, “Any Several Sunday.” That ep is great. Sounds like a totally drugged and blissed out Beatles. Sorry you’ve been having trouble trying to hear us, try one of these links: www.dragstripsyndicate.com www.belugarecords.com Thanks for checking us out. I hope all of you have good weekends. Vodka Sonic proof is sounding pretty good right about now. -E

Date: Fri Aug 31 07:22:26 2001 Name: dave City/State/Country: bratford Comment: hi paulo…i see you mentioned the name of my little band of merry men, ‘brazil’…if you’re interested our website is www.wearebrazil.co.uk and i think you can link to some sounds from there..if not we have stuff on www.mp3.com and www.peoplesound.com …we don’t have much of a swervie sound (though we’ve just recorded one that’s jazzmaster-tastic and more than a little swervey!!). jez produced the track ‘school daze’ and has done a couple of others that aren’t on the web as yet…they’re really cool and no doubt i’ll advertise them when they’re up!!…right – i’m off for some terra diablo action cos my boss isn’t here today!

Date: Fri Aug 31 06:07:44 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: WOOOHOOO!!! A new Toshack Highway CD!!! Thats made my weekend!!! And with the knowledge that part of the name has a link to the mighty Liverpool FC I love them even more. Trik – got yer mail. Cheers for getting in touch. Hope I’ll hear from you soon and have a good weekend!! Sundog – I know what you mean about the press thing. I am actualy on a mission from god to bring back shoegazing but Im always reluctant to mention it because of the sort of stigma attached. Bloody press!!! Carsten – where can I hear this Swervie cover? Is it on any sites? My sympathies are with everyone taking exams. I just got a new job teaching Music Technology at Ayr College so having crossed over to the other side I feel partly responsible….sorry & good luck!!. Erik (RVA) – A while ago I got a copy of a compilation CD with all that type of stuff on it. I’ll be fxxked if I can remember the name of it but it was full of old 60’s stuff I’d never heard. Some of them were so ahead of they’re time it is incredible. They sound like Garage rock. Realy rough. I’ll find out the name off the guy that lent me it and get it to you. Also I was in a Rockabilly/Cramps style band a few years ago and we went down to a guy called Boz Boorer’s studio in London. He plays for Morrisey now but I think he used to be in Johns Children. He had loads of old posters for gigs about the place and…get this…Mark Bourlands old Vamp Amp stack that appeared on an album cover and his old SG!! He also collected old pedals and had draws literaly full of stuff like big muffs, origional Tube Sceamers and Theramons (dont think thats spelt right) and stuff. Must go now before I electricute myself due to the dribble dripping onto my keyboard. Have a good weekend folks!!!
Date: Fri Aug 31 01:01:45 2001 Name: Paulo City/State/Country: Real Comment: “Behind the Scenes”‘s perhaps the best song on 99th, it’s pure, traditional, stylish wah-wah-pedalling Swervedriver. The long intro seems to start where “Sci-Flyer” took off (you can actually play them in sequence like they were a two-piece work). Notice how Adam’s voice takes on a different texture as he says “…million m-i-l-e-s..” (he’s singing much better on that album than on the others, adn especially if compared to the older live recordings, where he definitely strays offkey on some songs). Can’t wait for the new ep with the acoustic version of Hitcher (love that song too…). Erik, lilys rules (do you have “Brief History”? Would like to know if it’s worth looking for it…I only have Eccsame and the other one with the flowery cover. “Songs for the Soon to be Departed” is great too). I like the suggestion of having everyone’s band name+site compiled so we can check ’em out easier (I’ve been hitting words like Terra Diablo, Brazil,Dragstrip Syndicate onto my Limewire to no avail so far). Well, time to get (as Adam used to say) “the creative juices flowing”… — “walking dowstairs sideways, vod-ka so-nic proooooof…”

I got a few scattered songs, but I’d like to listen to complete show! Please let me know if this exists. Tankuveramuch, Z
Date: Thu Aug 30 15:34:48 2001 Name: art City/State/Country: nyc Comment: Ghost, I’m only going to one CMJ show that I know of: Alice Texas @ Sidewalk Cafe on the 13th. Is there anything that you think I shouldn’t miss? Let me know. Kik, the more swervies in NYC the better! Good luck!! Adam’s acoustic version of The Hitcher is amazing. I almost didn’t even recognize it when I first heard it here in NYC. Can’t wait for the Spacebaby CD. BTW, I understood the name Toshack Highway to be a reference to John Toshack, a former FA Cup star with the Liverpool club. I know Adam is all into soccer- um, I mean football. I don’t know what the Highway part means except maybe that ongoing obsession with driving…

Date: Thu Aug 30 00:43:43 2001 Name: Sundog City/State/Country: Chi-Town Comment: LOL Fester, wasn’t meant as a burn, just an opinion. I remember the early 90’s where many of the bands we like were dumped on by the media and now with the media raving over RH, it’s sort of like, ‘Where were you then?’ ;). Thanks Erik for the Birthday Wish (It’s Spet. 24th, but I’m not rushing it..lol, I’m old enough as it is!). Ian mentioning the ‘Beta Band’ reminds of that scene from the movie ‘Hi Fidelity’. There was a record store I always used to hang out in (knew the people who worked there) and that movie just captured the atmosphere of it perfectly..lol. Which is how I got my vinyl copy of ‘Dots and Loops’ by Stereolab. Man, everytime I am at these boards, you guys send me off in directions (music listening wise) I haven’t been in awhile. Thanks! 🙂 P.S.-New Toshack Highway! Cool. BTW, does anyone know where the name ‘Toshack Highway’ comes from? Just wondering. Dream well swervies, the music is always there.
Date: Thu Aug 30 00:17:17 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Check out the song from the Factory. I swear to God, they were a mid 60’s shoegazer band all the way. Also give John’s Children a listen, that was Marc Bolan’s first band. ANd while your at it, give it up to one of Oz’s finest, the Easybeats. Ok, I’m gonna shut up now. -E

Date: Wed Aug 29 19:30:48 2001 Name: Dan’l City/State/Country: Chicago Comment: OK, disciples of Swerve…. on “Behind the Scenes…”, the lyrics go “…score your provisions / score a smile /__________ for a million miles…” Can anyone fill the blank? I swear I saw it on one of the links, but after 45 minutes of looking again, I’ll be damned if I can find it. One of my favorite SWD lyrics, but my short term memory damage rears its ugly head again…. BTW, I’m still kicking myself for not being able to check out everyones’ music on here…! No machine at home (yet) and no speakers or sound card at work (at least it’s speedy)… I’ve only been on the board here since May, but just as I suspected, all you fellow SWD freaks have some tasty tastes in music. And are friendly to boot! So excuse me for running off at th’ keyboard like this….

Date: Wed Aug 29 03:02:16 2001 Name: Fester City/State/Country: Toronto Comment: I can hardly wait. Got a new computer with cable and I’m hitting all the things that one does when they’re left out of all of the internet fun. Which means I am able to listen to all the great music being featured on this board. There is no doubt that the boys from Diablo have got skills. Ghost, very solid. Her vocals are rock candy baby. Erik, your next, but for some reason the Beluga radio link ain’t happening for me. I’ve still options though, and the Syndicate will be heard. Happy Birthday to the Dapper Dan Man Bertrand and all the other swervies growing up in Swervonia. Mercury Rev release date is approaching. Heard the previews and all I can say is Yummy! Gettin’ burned by the Sundog-ouch! Speaking of which, I’ve got a CD in the oven as I type. This rocks! Peace my brother. Cheers!

Date: Mon Aug 27 23:52:59 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: Ye olde’ Capital of the Confederacy (RVA) Comment: Hey kids! I finally made it back home to Richmond. It was a blast on the road with the band/girlfriend. I think she and I saw every nook and cranny of Tennessee, from the Cherokee Indian Reservation in the Smokies to the Rock and Soul of Beale Street in Memphis. It was amazing being in on the street where Otis Redding, Wilson Picket, and Booker T used to rock out. Good times, man. I missed reading the message board regularly. I want to wish belated happy birthday wishes to Kik, Trik, Art, Bertrand, and Zach(?) Sundog(?). So many of you had b-days while I was gone I lost track. Thanks also to all of you for your advice on the Swerve songs for my driving compilation. I ended up saying fuck it and brought Mezcal Head in its entirety. Paul, excellent news about your new band!! I can’t wait to give it a listen, I shall do so soon. If you’re friends with those Astropop kids then you should hook up with Skywave (www.killerrockandroll.com) Good people, great band. Paulo, that’s great that you’re a Lily’s fan. My friend, Mike, is their bassist. He was just offered to be the bassist for Will Oldham’s band since Kurt is taking some time off to be a dad for a little while. Mike’s going to be touring Europe soon with Will Oldham getting paid good money. Christ, I hate that fucker. But anyway, it’s good to see people paying respects to the Lilys, Husker Du, Bill Hicks, and “O Brother Where Art Thou?”. Steve, that’s cool you got to see Mudhoney. I’m sure they rocked as usual. I hope all of you are well. Love you guys, it’s good to be back (but it sucks starting classes again…) -E

Date: Mon Aug 27 04:48:08 2001 Name: Ian Fairclough City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Thanks Ghost. Much appreciated!! I have to confess I dont know what EMO is though. When I hear what it stands for Ill probably remember. If you want some more stuff send your address to email@example.com and Ill get some off to you. Theres no much of an Indi scene going on over here right now though there’s some good bands about like the Beta Band, Billy Mahoney, and stuff but its kind of lacking that sort of ‘tribal’ “we all listen to…” sort of aspect. I guess there’s too many different styles now. Give me back 1991 I say. Happy Birthday Bertrand you young whippersnapper you and one last thing. ‘MON U REDS’!!! champions league here we come!!

Date: Sat Aug 25 12:58:07 2001 Name: Bertrand City/State/Country: Liège\Belgium Comment: It was the english version and it was subtitled in french. I always watch movies in the original version(subtitled if not french), whatever the language is. The dubbing sucks too often. Exemple: In english, they scream, in french, they just talk louder, so almost all the power of the dialogue is lost. But why this question? For the ol’ accent?
Date: Sat Aug 25 12:04:00 2001 Name: Ghost City/State/Country: LAst Time Comment: Ian, How ingnorant of me you have only been speaking of your band Terra Diablo on here for a year right? When i clicked on that link it took me to some Dj page so thats what I thought you were trying to show me, but after some poking around I found your band. Let me say I think it’s excellent. And that also answers my own question about Brit Indie. I love the guitar bends and super drum fills on Levitation, and you have a great vocal range, deep and raspy but getting those highs in there too. How can I get a TD cd? And not to offend with comparisons as you said earlier, but this may be the very first Brittish EMO i’ve ever heard. Are you aware of that whole movement? So when are you playing the States?
Date: Sat Aug 25 11:43:03 2001 Name: Ghost City/State/Country: Hamptonia Comment: Ian, I was listening to the different channels on the BBc radio that you linked us to, I was wondering something. When I write to my penpal in Bristol and I ask her about something I like such as: MBV, SWD, ride, lush, Pale Saints (all the shoegazers ) Etc… she always tell me that’s Indie music. Is there a Brittish Indie scene going on right now and if so can you name some bands? And is there a music show on that BBC that plays the Indie music? thanks

Why don’t you check on ebay occaisionaly that will probably be the quickest way to find a SWD shirt. Did you watch the movie in English or did you have it subtitled or dubbed?

I love this album, It is really mellow, seems perfect right now. Mudhoney are playing here on Sunday so I am trying to save some $$$ so i can drink at the show. Anyone watch Liverpool beat Buyron Munich today it was brilliant. Now the fella’s on my soccer team will beleave me when I tell them they are the best in the world.
Date: Fri Aug 24 18:46:21 2001 Name: Dan’l City/State/Country: Chicago Comment: 1)I might have posted this before as a potential SWD cover… Fleetwood Macs’ “Hypnotized”, from the Mystery To Me LP. SWD could slow it down, turn it up and make it a major slow jam, a la “Duress”… 2)Art, Bill Hicks is a comedian, no? Guess I could answer myself and click on the amazon.com logo down over there… 3) Billie – I scored one of those very same shirts at one of the Cabaret Metro shows here – it gets better treatment than some of my Sunday best… 4)Sundog – I’ll admit the UFO idea came up after my usual weekend warrior debauchery of smoke & barley pops… actually I’ve thought up whole lists of shit for the boys to consider, but promptly forget it come Monday morning…

I assume they still have the other one its med size navy blue with 2 red bars with swervedriver written in between them with the small satellite logo on the right.Thought id let you know if you were interested! Went to work the other day and JJJ was playing Duel which was a pleasent surprise which I religously cranked up to the displeasure of the suits in the cars beside me..have a good weekend to all

Date: Fri Aug 24 01:28:36 2001 Name: Sundog City/State/Country: Chi-Town Comment: Haven’t been here in a few weeks, definitely a lot happening. Erik, WTG on the tour and hooking up with Albini! Any ideas on the time frame you guys will be entering the studio with him? Dan’l, SWD playing UFO’s ‘Love-to-Love’ would be cool. I would also love to hear a SWD rendition of ‘Lights Out’ and being an aviation nut, I can already picture a video with Spitfires, Hurris, 109s and He-111s, drums and a lot of guitars!..lol. As for RH, I like some of what they have recorded. I think most of the people who absolutely ‘swoon’ over them, never heard MBV, Ride, Slow dive, The Boo Radley’s (Giant Steps), Blur, and all the other early to mid 90’s great pop music out of England. I think I need to go listen to ‘In Ribbons’, by the plae Saints now. Oh yeah, Erik, a little late now, but for a `driving tape the girlfriend can deal with, with a SWD song’ I would have to pick ‘Stellar Capris’ off of 99th Dream or if it has to be shorter in duration, ‘These Times’. Take care everyone, good to see many fo you with ‘positive circumstances’. Dream well.

Good stuff man!!Only heard the first one because it takes so bloody long to download stuff on this shit computer. Your singer sounds like a cross between Courtney Love and Blondy which is no bad thing. I dont usually like to make comparisons incase it offends people but its easyer that way. I’ve seen yours. Wana see mine? www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/djs/session_scotland/index.shtml

That’s so happy and catchy and original, that music was really cool. Mississippi in the 30’s was really like this? You lucky american bastards.

Date: Wed Aug 22 22:20:13 2001 Name: Ghost City/State/Country: Hamptonia Comment: Art sorry for opening the hate gates on your boys (rh) I have been wanting to say that all summer but thought I’d get the electronic boot. I really thought I’d be the only one that felt that way. Everyone I know loves em and i can’t figure it out. And I agree that that’s enough on that subject. Are you (Art) going to attend any CMJ shows next month. I think I am going to try and make the Cranes at the Limelight on the 13th of Sept. I am in ol’ Virginny mind you. Although you’re a southener too aren’t you. And ol’ Erik lives in the Capital of the Confederacy, and plays in a southern rock band. I have no idea what I am talking about. I just watched “oh Brother where ART thou”? Funny funny shit. ok that’s enough. Bicycle! -ghostieonassis-

Date: Wed Aug 22 10:50:22 2001 Name: art City/State/Country: nyc Comment: But that’s enough about RH… Okay maybe one more note, I tend to like the new stuff better than the early poppy stuff. That’s all I have to say. Bert, I think if Mogwai doesn’t immediately suck you in, it will win you over time. I have a history of loving slow, repetitive music makers like Velvet Underground, Flipper, Loop, Main, Magnog, Codeine, etc.. so, Mogwai fit like a glove. And of those other bands I only got to see Codeine live until Mogwai, which was pure bliss. Zach, I’m in still NYC. Way too hot to even think of going to NOLA this time of year! Trik, my b’day is this Friday 8/24. I’ll be spinning Raise, Mezcal Head, and 99th Dream at a bar uptown (check www.jrfunk.com for details) and chanting “Lager, lager, lager!” in my head at the same time. Baptiste, good point about RH. BTW, I’m sure Loveless is in the record collection of most bands that appear on those “Best Album” lists, so therein lies the irony. To all: Jez is back from the 5th dimension and promises to have something live to listen to soon. More later…
Date: Wed Aug 22 08:33:30 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Las Glasgos Comment: Trik – Thanks again for taking on the Terra Diablo cause!!! Our e-mail address is email@example.com so send us and e-mail with your address and Ill send some more stuff out to you. Funny you mentioned Mogwai. I was talking to Stuart Braithwaite at the Lift to Experience gig the other week and he said they’re selling their Marshall cabs and asked if I wanted one. Only thing is they’re probably ripped to fuck but its worth a shot. If anyone is interested I could get hold of one so e-mail me. I pick up my new motor on Friday so its a weekend sitting on a hill with my guitar somewhere in Scotland for me. FREE AT LAST!!! Haw – You shall go down in history as the man who transcribed Deep Seat. A true achievement indeed. Good luck man!!!

Date: Wed Aug 22 03:19:33 2001 Name: Festerhead City/State/Country: Torontohead Comment: Loveless has appeared a few times on Alternative Press lists, usually within the top twenty (Mezcal Head has been on 2 of the 3 lists I’ve seen. Once ranked 95 and the other time at 50. Both out of 100 alblums of course.) I’ve also seen Loveless appear on a top twenty list for one of the more popular guitar magazines. It was weird to see it among other albums from Van Halen and the like. That list also featured Husker Du I believe. I gotta tell ya, I miss the days when I used to turn on the dreaded “alternative” FM station in town and “Duel” or “Satansville” would come on. And being played along side Catherine Wheel, The Smashing Pumpkins, and yes, being from Toronto, the Barenaked Ladies… 🙂

Date: Tue Aug 21 23:02:11 2001 Name: Baptiste City/State/Country: home again Comment: Just because Radiohead didn’t become Bon Jovi when they got massive doesn’t mean we should all pat them on the back. Just because they borrowed elements from Mo Wax and Warp acts doesn’t mean we should diss them…afterall, what’s a band to do when it realises it’s gotten too big for it’s boots? U2 did the same when they immersed themselves in and borrowed elements of MBV for their Pop album. It’s just the end result(s) of Radoihead’s recent album(s) are very average, in those terms…and I think Mogwai are superior….as of course are the Swervies…..and besides Kurt Cobain really did have the last word on being angsty and fuckin pissed off! Kik’s right about the flutes though….how come Loveless never appears in any ‘Greatest Albums of all Time’ lists?

Man, RH ranting just keeps going on!! Need my 2 sense worth, some of the songs are majorly awesome,. but most is so bloody depressing!! Hand me the razor…!! HAs anybody else discovered the mastery of Terra Diablo.. dude they are amazing, and my final tid-bit for the day is Mogwai are legends..( they are the foot!! Get it leg-end!! I shouldn’t give up my day job, should I?? hmmmmmm!) Also, June of 44, anyone… take care all, those darker forces just ain’t real…

Date: Tue Aug 21 15:24:50 2001 Name: Zach City/State/Country: L.A. Comment: Thanks again for the info Paolo. Art, are you down in the Big Sleazy right now? I’m definitely not missing the heat down there, that’s for sure. For me, Radiohead has winners and losers. Some of the music is beautiful, and some I just don’t get (especially on the latest 2 albums). I’ll definitely check out what they produce, though. -Zach
Date: Tue Aug 21 15:12:33 2001 Name: Bertrand City/State/Country: Liège\Belgium Comment: Unhappily, I can’t tell in ‘english’ what I think of Radiohead. The only thing I can do is to compare the level of modesty of Thom Yorke (why the hell do they always need to film his self-centred face/appearance?) and the one of Jimmy, Steve, Adam and Jez (Yes, I can think about (and by) something else hehe). I totally hate that guy. Art, speaking of Mogwaï, I finally bought that ‘Come on die Young’ record, listened to it ten, fifteen times and I still don’t know if I like it or not (quite usual). I find it very repetitive. But, each new time I listen to it, I prefer it. Just have to understand the feelng… I bought SY ‘Daydream Nation’ at the same time and that is what I call exciting and clever music. Wanted to ask you: Is there any precocious child (Supergifted?) in here? Just curious.
Date: Tue Aug 21 13:33:50 2001 Name: Dan’l City/State/Country: Chicago Comment: Y’know, I thought for a long time Radiohead were in that Catherine Wheel/Pumpkins/Barenaked Ladies axis… all I knew is that the dreaded “alternative” FM station in town treated them with the same amount of yucky adulation. So naturally I avoided them like the plague. Then it was “dude you gotta listen to OK Computer”… then it was a spot on Saturday Night Live. And then somebody gives me a copy of The Bends. Yeah, Radiohead has some pretty songs, but I don’t see what all the hype is about….

Date: Tue Aug 21 11:14:29 2001 Name: Art City/State/Country: NYC by way of New Orleans Comment: ::Begin RH rant:: Maybe it’s because I grew up against a backdrop of Dixieland and Brass Band Jazz that I like RH’s use of horns on these past few albums. Maybe it’s because I grew up listening to the Beach Boys that I love their use of the Theremin here as well. Perhaps it’s cool to hate RH now that they’re achieved a virtual U2-scale superstar status, but I still think that what they’re putting out is imaginative and enjoyable. Of course I worship SWD & Mogwai, but there’s still plenty of room for RH in my CD collection. ::End RH rant::
Date: Tue Aug 21 07:01:42 2001 Name: Paulo City/State/Country: Real Comment: Not at all, Zach. You might want to try downloading two wonderful songs by Lilys called “Claire Hates Me” and “Dandy”. I got ’em from LimeWire last week. I THINK they’re on a record called “Brief History of Amazing Letdowns” which they say it’s Lilys at their best (It’s from their MBV-like dreampop phase). If you want to go for a full album, I’d recommend the one called “Better Can’t Make Your Life Better”. It has a 60s-ish flavour, very different from the previous records, but with BRILLIANT melodies that never sound outdated. I’m not particularly obsessed with originality, and here’s someone (heasley) who can prove you — with genius — that sometimes an imitation is not JUST an imitation.
Date: Mon Aug 20 21:47:40 2001 Name: kik City/State/Country: Comment: ok my input for radiohead… rh = instant depression for some reason & fuck dat ! but you know those things that you just know are bad for you but you still keep doing them… rh = that for me. but its true re the fekking jaz thing… i hate BRASS goddamn it – loud, crass, and all the people i know that blow brass really suk y’know, or at least they did when i was in school aural torture sessions aka orchestra. now MBV have the answer, take the flute (my fave thing to play), whack in a leed, throw in some pedals (the more the better) and you are there baby ! heaven.

Date: Mon Aug 20 13:13:02 2001 Name: Dan’l City/State/Country: Chicago Comment: Erik – Yeah I dig MOTO. It’s short for Masters Of The Obvious, one of my favorite band names. Guitarist/singer Paul started out with himself and a totally foxy chick drummer named Beck, touring in a Chevy Chevette and putting out a slew of 7 inchers. (you don’t have to be a)”Dick About It” is my favorite MOTO jam. As of late Paul has branched out to include a bassist, and added more power to his pop. Very unpretentious and refreshing, like the Jam. “…away from the numbers / that’s where I’ll be….”

Judging by their biography available at cdonw.com it’s a promising band; 2) LUSK: Free Mars. Ex-tool bassist Paul D’Amour’s solo project. This is certainly a VERSATILE musician. Try the realplayer sample from “backworlds” at cdnow.com. and you’ll get the picture; 3) LILYS: Selected EP. No need to listen before buying, this guy Kurt Heasley is surely one of the most talented out there, I’d love to see him working with Kevin Shields.

I~ve got a bunch of friends heading for leeds just as i write these words, lineup this time~s very good, featuring some Classics such as P.J. Harvey, Teenage Fanclub, Frank Black and Mercury Rev, along with newr acts. Mr. Dando~s also playing (altho he~ll probly play for the chicks…well, I don~t blame him, it~s for a good cause…). I can~t go this time but will book my ticket as soon as I get to know the lineup for next year. Hopefully the Swervies will be there. And they~ll play so hard they~ll sink the isle off the map…
Date: Fri Aug 17 19:43:37 2001 Name: Art City/State/Country: Back from outer space Comment: Trikster, happy birthday! You beat me by 4 days. I’m having a bash on Friday night in NYC if any swervies want to drop by, check out www.jrfunk.com for the dilly-yo. Erik, life sounds too sweet for you right now. Albini and all. I saw Radiohead and I like them just as much as I did before, which is lots. I think they are a talented lot that is not held hostage by or afraid of their celebrity status. Plus, there’s hardly a radio format song on the new album, which is a little ironic. Whatever, to each his/her own. The Bends still rocks most every other non-Swerve album of the same period.

Date: Fri Aug 17 14:07:44 2001 Name: Ghost City/State/Country: Hamptonia Comment: Erik My Man, I cannot believe you are going to record with Albini. THats a dream right there, my favorite after Mr. Moulder. I have collected alot of articles and interviews with Albini and I like all of his thoughts about the industry and life in general. And I have read all about his obsessive behavior when designing and building that studio. Congrats dude and have a blast.I am exited for you. I myself have hooked up with a band I am very excited about. Its got a female singer and female guitar player they have like 40 songs and I really dig their stuff, (i will be playing 2nd guitar and backup vocals)Its kind of hard to pinpoint but it has a Nirvana meets early 10,000 Maniacs. But we need a drummer, they’ve already auditioned 3 in the three weeks I’ve known them and they all want to play Limp Bizkut, so if you know any drummers in the hampton roads area let me know we need one immediately. Also Erik, have you heard Astropop 3 from Va Beach? I am now absolutely in love with Angelique. Alright man, keep us posted. Bicycle!

Date: Fri Aug 17 13:36:06 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Thanks a lot for all of your suggestions guys. I guess I’m going to have to include more than one song for the mix. Dan, it’s funny that you mentioned UFO. When I was in Chicago the other day, we stayed at a labelmate’s house and rocked out to UFO’s live album before going to the Note. Good stuff indeed. Have you heard this Chicago band called MOTO? I saw their performance on Chica-go-go and thought they were really cool, kinda reminded me of the Jam. Well kids, I’m off for another little adventure (through the South this time). Everyone stay cool, never lose that feeling and all that stuff. Talk to y’all later. -E
Date: Fri Aug 17 13:02:48 2001 Name: Dan’l City/State/Country: Chicago Comment: Erik – Good Ships, dood. Like Wrong Treats, but more chick-friendly (like me) ;] Also try the UFO song I posted earlier on here… I noticed nobody mentioned anything about it. I dunno, maybe I’m showing my age….

Date: Thu Aug 16 18:06:17 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Hey kids, got a question for all of you. Even though I just returned from a road trip with the band, my girlfriend and I are about to head on another one. I’m putting together a “driving mix” for the two of us and was going to throw on a Swerve song, but in taking all the other music into consideration, I probably have room for only one of their tunes. She doesn’t dislike Swervedriver, but she’s not nearly the fan that I am. What one song do you think could win someone over? I was thinking either, “Duel”, “Change is Gonna Come”, “Son of Mustang Ford” or “The Hitcher”. Lemme know what you think. Hope the drink is treating you Canadians well. My best friend (who’s Canadian) and I did some drinking ourselves last night. We went to a local pub called “Penny Lane”. Yep, just like the Beatles tune. The two guys who own it are some Scousers who used to work at the Cavern Club when the Beatles still played the Liverpool club circuit. Needless to say, those guys have some interesting stories to tell. As for the Radiohead thing, I must admit that I think they’re severely overrated. But anyway, Jesus, what a gabber I am today. Hope all of you are well. The weekend is upon us!! Steve, I’ll be staying with my folks in Williamsburg tomorrow if you want to try calling there. Remember their number? Talk at y’all later. -E

I’m going through something similar in my own neck of the woods, but it ain’t as cool as the rock n’ roll thing (although, it’ll do!). Yeah, the Weezer thing is funny because I’ve be listening to them a lot lately, and really, I’m not a big fan. Y’see how I did that Ghost? It’s called diplomacy friend. Your lucky you’re a big time swervie fan, because I’m holding back here…”Puzzle” by Tahiti 80 rocks! So does “The Good Life” for that matter. Alrighty, I’ve just joined the druken posters club!

Date: Wed Aug 15 19:54:23 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Hey all!! Yes, I’m back from the road. It was such a great time. All the shows went really well, particularly in Chicago and Ann Arbor. It was nice to actually come back WITH a little bit of money instead of sporting the “Jesus, I hope we at least break even” ethic. In Chicago, we had the pleasure of meeting Steve Albini, who is scheduled to record our next album in December (if all goes well). He showed us his studio and it was the most amazing thing I have ever seen. It was 3 floors, with 5 five separate sound rooms. There was any kind of recording equipment imaginable, and the walls were made of adobe bricks shipped up from New Mexico, fucking incredible. Sweet times indeed. I missed reading the message board while I was out. Sounds as if everyone is doing well. Ian, congrats on your radio performace. I shall be checking it out later on. Zach, glad you survived the move. Kik, you should become a pro surfer! It’s funny you mentioned that Weezer lyric. We were rocking out to that song while driving home yesterday. I guess everyone else is gearing up for the Radiohead shows. My housemates were supposed to go the one in Centerville, Va., but it was rained out. Tough luck for the folks who bought their tickets on Ebay. Steve, if all goes according to our plans, we’ll be touring again this spring with the Cherry Valence. Hopefully we’ll make it down to Austin to see you. Hope everyone is all right. Good to be home again, whooo!!!! -E

Remember how you were after some new tunes to listen to. I went to see Lift to Experience and King Tuts last night and they were amazing. Sound a bit like Mogwai with vocals but different…somehow.

Date: Mon Aug 13 22:37:37 2001 Name: Fester City/State/Country: Toronto Comment: I’ve discovered Gomez in a big way. Great band. I remember months ago I suggested that Swervie should do a cover of the Beatle’s “Getting Better”. Well stupid, missed-the-bus, Johnny-come-lately me didn’t realize that the boys from Gomez have already covered it. And I must have seen that microsoft(?)commercial a million times! Anyway, I’ve got a better Beatle’s cover they should do – “She Said” off of Revolver. There, now I feel better. Hope everyone is doing well. Outside of Radiohead/Beta Band at bullshit Barrie Park, there’s not a whole lot going on music wise up here. Swervie, where are you?!!

They rocked! These guys sound great, so check them out if you can. They even played a cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”, without the opera parts. Now all I want is for Swervedriver to tour back down in these parts…

Date: Fri Aug 10 06:21:07 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Well, thats that done. I think i was more nervouse listening to that than when we do gigs. You can hear the session at www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/djs/session_scotland/index.shtml. It was recorded live so the songs ar’nt exactly how they should sound but you’ll get the idea. Hairy – cheers for the support. Our guitarist is having his 21st down stairs in Sleazys on Saturday if you fancy it. Im sure he would’nt mind you crashing it and Im doing a shoegazing DJ slot for all the stoners there. If you fancy it just follow the Swervedriver tunes floating across Glasgow and ask for me at the door.

It’s an excellent song. I also have to give credit to Lori S. of Acid King.— ‘Ex-cop ’round the block Rockin’ chair, suckin’ beer He blasts flies with his gun Because swatting’s no fun ‘ Have a good road trip/tour Erik.

(email@example.com) Re: Kim Gordon, the only time I saw Sonic Youth was back in ’92. Superchunk opened for them. Laura and Kim were both looking mighty fine that day… After tonight I shall be “on the road” for a brief stint. I’ll miss regularly reading everyone’s postings, but I should be back in about two weeks. Take care all. -E

Wicker World awaits you… Ian – yer gig on the Beeb sounds excellent – I’d like to check yer sound, but I’m a big loser for not having a computer at home, and… lessee… nope, no sound card (or speakers) at work. Ah well, someday, mate. On the chick tip… yeah there’s better lookin wimmin’ out there, but for the all-around package I like Kim Gordon. More Swerve lyrics to come – lunch is over….

Date: Mon Aug 6 21:27:27 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Hey there Paul, long time no see! Glad you’re still employed. It would really suck to get fired over Marilyn Manson. I think it’s going to be January when I become a North Carolinian and cease to be a Virginian. Raleigh’s a great town, I can’t wait (and of course, the lady friend is there;) Dan, that would great if you came out to our show at the Note. It would be awesome to swervetalk in person! Friday we’re playing in Bloomington(?) Illinois, and Saturday we’ll be in the Chi-town. Ian, unfortunately I’ll be on the road while your band is being broadcast, but I’ll hear you guys soon enough I’m sure. You should come stateside!! Hope everyone else is well. My body is still recovering from the Chapel Hill Sleazefest. Jesus, what a great time… Bye all -E

Sounds like things are heating up at the Dragstrip. Was that really Alan Moulder that sneeked a word in our little club? If so, Mr. Moulder I hope to work with you someday, I never thought about production until I found your work. You’re the GOAT. Well not much else, I didn’t get fired Erik, I have come to realise they wouldn’t fire me for anything less than shoplifting, they need people to work there too much.Bicycle! Hi Professor Jazninski.

Date: Mon Aug 6 06:55:48 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Sorry folks but its got to be done. Terra Diablo are doing the Evening Session for Radio 1 this Thursday (9th). You should be able to hear it buy going to the BBC Radio 1 web site, looking up the Evening Session and then going to Session in Scotland. It will be aired between 8 and 10pm British time. I dont know what that will be in everyone elses country but any feedback from it would be most welcome and I would be most honoured if anyone take the time out to have a wee listen. Oh yes, and fave Swervie lyric. “And when the dawn begins to creep, sunlight finds you in a heap, and how you wish that you could sleep” Describes my best Swervedriver listening experienses perfectly.

Marian Faithfull has always been up there (in her day of course). If she’s good enough for the Swervies an au that.
Date: Sun Aug 5 07:49:33 2001 Name: Mat City/State/Country: Penzance, Cornwall Comment: just gotta tell you, you are all wrong – undoubtedly the loveliest lady in the entire musical universe is Hope Sandoval…. Miki Berenyi 2nd though!!!

As luck would have it, I’m house/cat/carsitting for a buddy in the neighborhood where the Note is; and I’ll be looking for some entertainment. It’d be cool to talk live with a Swerve freak from outside my circle of friends (Lisa, you out there, you corn-huskin’ mama?) As for lyrics, I’ve posted some of my standouts already, and now with Net access I’m learning more (any more lyrics out there besides Kidneyboys’ site?) The lyrics to The Birds hit home for me… pretty much describes how I felt at 18… and now, as well. Come to think of it, Adam hits home a lot. And Jez’ work, too. And Stephen. And Jimmy. “…everybody knows there ain’t no rules in wrestling…”

Date: Fri Aug 3 10:55:40 2001 Name: Hairy Haw City/State/Country: Skiving in the Uni library Comment: Toni Halliday definitely. For being married to Alan Moulder and for the vocal on ‘Coast is Clear’. Sarah Cracknell is cool as well but a wee bit kitsch for me. Always though Miki Berenyi was a babe an’ a. Something about chicks with heavy make-up I think!! Hmmm.
