Comment: TOP 5 SWERVEDRIVER MEMORIES: 1) Driving through the mountains in Germany listening to Raise. 2) Seeing the Pacific for the first time as I listened to 99th dream on a discman. 3) Speaking to Jez for a long time in DC. 4) Finding out that they were influenced by the MC5 and the Stooges. 5) Everytime I hear “Deep Seat”. Sorry, I just recently saw High Fidelity. It got me on this top 5 list kick.

Date: Thu Sep 21 20:24:12 2000 Name: J Nevada City/State/Country: Virginia Comment: All of beach going Aussies just make sure to watch out for the great white sharks. There is no SWD for the half-eaten I’m afraid.

Date: Thu Sep 21 10:36:20 2000 Name: Kik City/State/Country: ole perth Comment: Billie, Oct looks OK in Perth: bands coming up that I know of are Oct 10 -the cure ($66) at Perth ent. centre; yo la tengo oct 15 (cost?? where?? should be good); blink 182 sometime after that (hmmmmm). i hope things have changed since i last saw the cure, back in 1995 (Sydney Ent. Centre) where I scammed entry to ‘the pit’. This was a big mistake. had some screaming 12 year old robbie smith lookalike acting like she was at a Bardot concert… i think she even had a robbie doll.

Date: Thu Sep 21 08:21:45 2000 Name: Billie City/State/Country: Sunny Perth Comment: Hey Kik,Do you know of any decent bands coming west over the next few weeks havent looked at the gig guides lately?Definitely going to enjoy those lazy afternoons laying on the beach watching the sunset over the Indian ocean listening to SwD oh yeah pure nirvana.
Date: Thu Sep 21 05:25:43 2000 Name: kik City/State/Country: perth ounce Comment: yep, nothing but clear skies and lazy afternoons from here to february next year – so come on down swd – we’re waiting for you! T how on earth do you survive in -40? (i can’t imagine what that feels like) And by the way where is bill? we love you still bill even with the relevance thing.
Date: Thu Sep 21 03:56:32 2000 Name: Tuomas City/State/Country: Finland Comment: kik, you lucky bastard, as you lie there, shades on, at the beach, I have to suffer from freezing cold (from -20 to even hellish -40 C)… A bit of turn off for any band to come and play here 🙂
Date: Thu Sep 21 00:49:29 2000 Name: kik City/State/Country: perth aust Comment: J maybe the oz summertime will draw them back again this year – there’s a drought of international gigs here …
Date: Wed Sep 20 23:04:03 2000 Name: J Nevada City/State/Country: Richmond, Va. Comment: Yes Kik, I would trade nothing for my sleepy, 2am drives home listening to SWD. I’m a Librarian/Musician. You know what’s interesting? The last time that I saw Swervedriver was Nov. 1st, 1998 in Fredericksburg Va. I think a night or two after that show they left the states for Australia. You and I probably saw them play within a short time between those shows, regardless of both of us living on opposite sides of the globe. Adam told me that he was happy to be going to Oz because it was summertime there…
Date: Wed Sep 20 05:17:19 2000 Name: Kik City/State/Country: perth ozzie ozzi ozzi Comment: J what do you do to be finishing work at 2am? but i think there’s a certain elegance attached to the combination of 2am, Js, swd and driving. does anyone know when swd/tsh are headed down under? the last time i saw swd was (i think, memory’s a but hazy) dec ’98 at a mudslinger concert.
Date: Wed Sep 20 00:50:23 2000 Name: J Nevada City/State/Country: Va. USA Comment: It’s 2:00 am, I’m about to get off work, jump into my car and listen to “Lead Me Where You Dare”… Hope all is well with the rest of you Swervies…

Date: Sat Sep 16 02:37:26 2000 Name: Todd Secord City/State/Country: Toronto Comment: If you believe relvenance is in the ears of the beholder than why would you even ask the question? And, as much as I think that Swervedriver is the greatest band in the universe, the last thing I would classify them as is “popular”.
Date: Fri Sep 15 20:40:31 2000 Name: Bill Hicks City/State/Country: Slidell, La. Comment: Actually Joe, I do I agree with you Joe. Relevance is in the ears of the beholder. I could care less about what is popular, politically correct, flavor of the moment, etc … It’s too bad not all people do …

Date: Fri Sep 15 11:42:04 2000 Name: Joe City/State/Country: Alberta Comment: I am under the assumption that relavence exists in the ears of the listener, despite “pop trends”, record deals, charts etc. The only relavence that I am concerned about is the relationship between the music I listen to and how I am feeling at that particular point. People listen to music that was first played centuries ago and that still holds an immense relavence to them. Maybe just not to Bill.
Date: Fri Sep 15 06:35:33 2000 Name: Kik City/State/Country: perth aust Comment: right on Tuomas, but i doubt whether Oasis ever had an original chord/thought/idea/clue. i’m so sick of haircut bands. what sort of a question is ‘is swervedriver still relevant’ anyway bill?
Date: Fri Sep 15 01:44:29 2000 Name: Tuomas City/State/Country: HKI, Finland Comment: Bill, For fucks sake, Oasis started copying themselves after the first single and still they keep going on (unfortunately)… Swervies on the other hand have progressed from the fuzz and feedbackwalls of the “Raise” album to more adult kind of sophisticated guitarambience (ie. Good Ships), so I’m pretty much at ease now waiting for new material to blow my mind away…
Date: Thu Sep 14 21:55:56 2000 Name: J Nevada City/State/Country: Richmond, Va Comment: Swervedriver is the ONLY band that I listen to who has never had a bad song on any of their releases, and I listen to A LOT of fucking music. I also see them holding on to their vitality for a long time regardless of how much time passes inbetween releases. If you think about it, it’s amazing what this band has accomplished with so little radio play or support from their labels.
Date: Thu Sep 14 20:48:18 2000 Name: Bill Hicks City/State/Country: Slidell, LA Comment: OK – so Swervedriver may still be relevant. But for how long? I mean, pop acts generally only last 7-8 yrs., running their course. Otherwise, they just become cheap imitations of themselves. Is Swervedriver headed down this path? It could be ….

Date: Wed Sep 13 01:45:56 2000 Name: Tuomas City/State/Country: Funland Comment: Indeed I have, just few songs but still… They really got the groove needed to make my day shine…
Date: Tue Sep 12 21:41:25 2000 Name: J Nevada City/State/Country: Sweet Va. Comment: Yes, Rock and Roll is still relevant indeed and so is Swervedriver for that matter. Tuomas have you heard The Go? (they’re on subpop) I think they’d be right up your alley.
Date: Tue Sep 12 12:17:35 2000 Name: starfish City/State/Country: oceania Comment: Hi. I have some questions about Adam Franklin’s VOX AC-30. I do know that Adam’s is a vintage model, not a reissue like the Guitar Geek web site states. But, I would like to know the details below because I like the sound of his amp and would like to purchase a vintage model, but don’t want to pay the high $US prices until I find out exactly which version of the AC-30 I need. Jez, could you take a stab at this? Questions about Adam’s vintage VOX AC-30: * Is the control panel red or grey in color? * Does it say a JMI product on the panel? * Are the speakers blue, silver, or greenback celestions? Or, other brand? * Is it a top boost model? (Bass and treble controls on the back baffle?) * Brand/types of tubes he uses if known? Thanks, starfish
Date: Tue Sep 12 01:00:57 2000 Name: Tuomas City/State/Country: Finland Comment: Relevant, in the sense that Rock’n’Roll is still relevant. 🙂
Date: Mon Sep 11 23:55:07 2000 Name: Todd City/State/Country: Toronto Comment: So what are you saying Wild Bill? Pete Townshend = The Who = Swervedriver? With all the sampling, covers, and copying that’s going on right now, all music becomes relevant. Sure, Swervie may have some loose connections to the Who, but who cares? In my mind, Swervedriver will always be relevant because they’re relevant to me.
Date: Sun Sep 10 15:05:54 2000 Name: Bill Hicks City/State/Country: Slidell, LA Comment: Relevant, in the sense that Pete Townshend is still relevant.

Date: Sat Sep 9 10:05:42 2000 Name: Al Cudmore City/State/Country: Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada Comment: Cool site. Swervedriver is one of my favorite bands. Caught them twice now. Once in Toronto on the Soundgarden/Monster Magnet tour, and once in Hamilton at the legendary Corktown tavern…this was the best show I have seen at that venue.
