NYC Added
Here’s the anonymous tip: “Adam is playing an extra show at Alan Mcghee’s Radio 4 club night at Don Hill’s, 511 Greenwich S (corner of Spring), New York City on Friday 13th July. Take C or E train to Spring, 1 or 9 to Canal St. No cover before 10 pm, only $10 after 10 pm. 212-219-2850 Adam will take either the 10 pm or midnight slot.” 07/03/2001 — Swervedriver

Update
I got a chance to speak with Adam briefly after the show and picked his brain about the current status of SWD, Toshack Highway and anything else I could think of. At the present time, Swervedriver is free from any contractual obligations and Adam said they’re currently looking around for a new deal. Adam will be releasing some four track solo stuff under the moniker Toshack Highway on SpaceBaby records. Information about that release will be available here and the Toshack Highway site as well. Catapult Records was rumored to be re-releasing Ejector Seat Reservation and 99th Dream, but I’ve yet to confirm this with them. Stay tuned for more details.
