Date: Wed Oct 31 19:45:02 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Kik, as a Southerner, I’m afraid even I can’t help you. I went to Alabama for the first time about a year and a half ago when my band was on tour. I heard variations of the Southern accent that I didn’t even think was possible.

Date: Wed Oct 31 13:36:22 2001 Name: marc fort City/State/Country: austin, tx Comment: Hello Swervies…has anyone noticed how much some of the songs by The Doves on their “Lost Souls” records sound like Adam is singing? I like the Doves but I think this band owes Swervedriver a thank you for inspiration. Also, Adam, what’s up with skipping Austin, TX. You know you every show you’ve ever played here has been sold out. You know, just fly down for a few days, kick it with all the ladies down here where it’s still 80 degrees in December…
Date: Wed Oct 31 11:34:33 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Kik – thanks for the vote of confidence. Maby if I ever get rich I can pay for you all to come over. (I would you know) As for the Alabamees I cant help Im afraid. Nor do I have a scooby what vernicular is. Its time like these I wish Id went to school instead of taking buckets all day.

Date: Wed Oct 31 04:58:06 2001 Name: kik City/State/Country: Comment: my close friend yanya is off to alabama early next year (yes, alabama (???) – she’s following her man, sigh). can any of you southerners tell me how many syllables “finance” and “alabama” really have in the vernacular, just to set a long running debate straight? I say “finance” in alabamese has got about 6 (on the “an-an”) and “alabama” has got about 7 (on the “ama”). any thoughts?

Date: Wed Oct 31 01:17:37 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Ricky, I think Taco Bell might have a lil’ somethin’ to do with those ulcers. Paulo, Mike’s in Europe touring with Will Oldham, but as soon as he gets back I’ll ask him about that recording. I’m sure he would just send you a copy of it if he has one. As for Death Cab for Cutie, I saw them once. Before they started playing their set, the singer stepped up to the mic and sound checked quickly with “The Concept” from Teenage Fanclub. For me, that was the only redeeming part of their set, (I hope I didn’t just offend anyone). -E

Date: Tue Oct 30 18:01:23 2001 Name: art City/State/Country: nyc Comment: Elvis, welcome to SWD.com! Glad you could join us. Kevkov, has anyone seen Jez?!?! Paulo, the tall, shaggy one would be Jimmy Hartridge, as he has been Adam’s co-conspirator in the noisy guitar genre for the past decade or more. One note about Adam’s tour, there seems to be some confusion on the date listed for the LA show at the Mint. Their people told me it was the 17th but Adam said it was the 16th. You Southern Cali folks better block out both days to be on the safe side! I’ll get it squared away soon. Over and out.
Date: Tue Oct 30 17:43:18 2001 Name: Paulo City/State/Country: Real Comment: Good to know My Vitriol’s been compared to the swervies. I’d heard they were very good and was thinking of grabbing a copy of “Finelines”, now I just HAVE to…I’ll wait the US realease tho. Anne, pardon my indiscreetness, but who’s tall, shaggy and NEED to be convinced into making some more albums with Adam? Good Nooz: Lilys’ new record to be realesed not long into the new year (see www.manifesto.com). BTW, Erik, if you ever stumble across that friend of yours who plays bass for the band, would you ask him where the H*ll can I find a copy ofthe whole live session they’ve recorded for an FM radiostation sometime after the realese of “Better Can’t..” (I guess the FM was BFGB or something like that). Sorry for insisting on the Lilys subject but I got hooked on those songs like a baby on a lolipop. Anyone out there dig Dead Cab for Cutie? I heard good things and would like to know what’s their sound like. Been told it’s “Lo-fi” but don’t trust such an awkward discription. (soundtrack of the day: “Non-expensive (fee)” and “As Just” by Duel. Verses of the day: I took a car/I drove it far/I dug the quality of steel/I crashed my nerve/I made it swerve/I made it back-was no big deal — GBV).

None of that “going to work the next morning” bullshit! 4) Swerve song du jour = “Love/Hate The Way It Starts/Ends”. …..drmcd

Date: Mon Oct 29 23:04:38 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Sam, it’s good to see another Mudhoney fan here. I’ve always been a huge fan of theirs. I first heard them about 12 years ago, when I was in High School. I totally freaked, I was like “Oh My God!! These guys are a punk rock Blue Cheer!!” A band like Mudhoney is every rock record collecting geek’s dream,. (Yes, I fall into that category completely).
Date: Mon Oct 29 22:23:11 2001 Name: ghost City/State/Country: Comment: Sorry Gang if this is getting repetitive but I’m sure you all understand. Also ADAM I have a smaller DV Camera if the large one is too overbearing.
Date: Mon Oct 29 22:21:28 2001 Name: ghost City/State/Country: TO ADAM SWERVIE Comment: Hey Adam if you get this in time i was wondering something. I just got a job with a production company editing video and I would like to video your show in DC if you don’t mind. But I totally want to respect your feelings and not cross any lines with you. It is a large pro grade digital camera and I was thinking that we could shoot it and if you are happy with the show maybe we could set it up on the web for everyone to watch. I don’t know if Art has enough bandwidth here but we could always link it from somewhere else. I was blown away by your show in DC in June and it would be awesome to let all the fans in on it. So if you read this before the 2nd of November please let me know what you think and if you don’t want me to I absolutely understand. My address is firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to reply there. Thanks.

Its closer for a start, we all drink whisky and run about all day with red hair and fuzzy red beards chasing after haggises (or is it Haggie)and specialise in bearing our spotty bear arses from underneath our kilts at every given opportunity. It great fun up here I tells ya!! (only jocking (ha) about the Seatlle thing by the way. A worthy and fine city indeed).

I’m recording it of course. I’ve already seen this movie (and I really liked it but it is strange, it seems that the main car and the main truck were different the 1st time I saw it.
Date: Sun Oct 28 04:17:04 2001 Name: Bertrand City/State/Country: Liège\Belgium Comment: Hey, John, the (My Vitriol) album isn’t called Finelines?
Date: Sat Oct 27 17:55:30 2001 Name: John City/State/Country: Seattle Comment: Back on My Vitriol, I wasn’t aware of the NME article (I don’t read NME), but I’d say their sound is closest to My Bloody Valentine in the Loveless era, although I do think it is also somewhat similar to SWD and Catherine Wheel. The vocals remind me of Foo Fighters. Personally, I thought it was one of the best new albums I’d heard in the last couple of years. To the person who liked the singles, IMO, the album is consistently strong and those two are representative of the whole… By the way, no takers on my inquiry about cdr trading of live shows? I’m at email@example.com for anyone interested….
Date: Sat Oct 27 15:12:06 2001 Name: Alex City/State/Country: CR, Iowa, USA Comment: To the people from Chicago that frequent this board.

Date: Thu Oct 25 07:02:09 2001 Name: Bertrand City/State/Country: Liège\Belgium Comment: I have 2 songs on my computer from My Vitriol called “Always Your Way” and “Grounded”. They are great but they’ve made the singles so probably the rest of the album is more interesting.
Date: Thu Oct 25 02:37:27 2001 Name: seb City/State/Country: midlander Comment: got a copy of ‘the fly’ the other week. There’s an article on my vitriol, they criticise the nme comparing mv to swervedriver & go on about how good ‘franklin & co’ were. I just found it weird seeing there name in print in an English music mag………
Date: Thu Oct 25 00:37:37 2001 Name: John City/State/Country: Seattle Comment: Hey Art in NYC – Mariner fans would probably be a lot more upset about losing to the Damn Yankees again if not for the WTC disaster. NYC can probably use a good outlet like baseball…. By the way, has anyone here checked out the UK band My Vitriol? Their album Finelines is excellent, reminds me of SWD, MBV, C/Wheel, etc. It hasn’t been released in the US yet, to my knowledge, but it’s well worth springing for the import… A friend also recently turned me on to the Aussie band You Am I, another cool guitar based band. They have an interesting pop/punk guitar sound, but without being too obviously derivative. Maybe mid-period Replacements would be the best comparison… John PS Damn shame I don’t see Seattle on the list of Adam’s tour stops. Pretty Please?? ;>
Date: Wed Oct 24 22:04:12 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Hahaha… I got a kick out of the Sparklehorse postings. That’s another band from my lil’ garden spot of the world that I always seem to forget about.

Date: Wed Oct 24 19:30:34 2001 Name: Fester City/State/Country: Toronto Comment: Ricky, babe, I was wonderin’ what was up. Take large doses of Beatles and Flamming Lips in the day, and finish it off with Swervie at night. It works, trust me. New Mercury Rev isn’t as special as I hoped it would be, I gotta say. They’ve stripped things down maybe a little too much compared to previous alblums. Really could have used a little more dynamite in the rhythms, and broke up the style of sounds from song to song like they normally do. Basically, a disk to buy if your a fan already. Having said that, they’re coming Nov 22 and I can hardly wait. BTW, stay the fuck away from Sparkle Horse. Blah!
Date: Wed Oct 24 19:09:33 2001 Name: Art City/State/Country: NYC Comment: Good to have you back, Ricky. Hope you feel better. NEVER blame the herb. And welcome Seattle John. Sorry about knocking your M’s out of the World Series. 😉

Just keep playing “Planes Over the Skyline” and you’ll be aiiiight. Paul, I ran into your boy, Ron, earlier tonight. I felt like a schmuck for not recognizing him. We chatted briefly about the show on the 2nd, that I’ll (sob) be missing. Anyway… Lately Deep Purple, Echo and the Bunnymen, and the Wipers have been rockin my world. If any of you out there were ever fans of the Wipers, some tiny German label called Gift of Life re-released all their earlier records. Owning a vinyl release of “Over the Edge” has been quite heavenly. -E

Date: Tue Oct 23 05:31:51 2001 Name: Dave City/State/Country: St.Helens Comment: Of course i want the tab! i totally understand about it all, so how many tabs have you got that arent quite typed up yet? Thanks for going to all the trouble of tabbing stuff that ive requested. thanks 🙂 –Dave
Date: Tue Oct 23 05:24:02 2001 Name: The Haw City/State/Country: Comment: Dave-it’s done and has been for a while. Slight problem is I don’t have same amount of access to a pc as I used to and also I have a few err technical problems with my flat (i.e my bedroom and my kitchen have no floor and I am in a bedsit until the builders have finished…whenever that fuckin is)which naturally mean that the notes for the tab are SOMEWHERE there but until I can move back in….. If u don’t want the tab, no worries it’ll prob end up here when I eventually get around to typing it. I might be takin’ as long as the Swervies take to put out an album but bear with me……….
Date: Mon Oct 22 23:53:02 2001 Name: Ghost City/State/Country: Hamp’n Comment: Hey Erik, no Mock Orange aren’t my friends in the way that I know them, I guess they are my friends because I love their music and the ones who make the music we love are friends to us all. Huh? They are on Lobster records and are from Indiana. THey are super tight. It’s a combo of emo and math rock. THe drummer is unreal. Probably one of the best bands Cogan’s will ever have on their cement floor and they dissed them. Go check em out ok? I have advertised them on this thing many times but noone seems to have heard em. Nines and SIxes is their first album and it’s a perfect first. I hope you have fun at all your parties and shows, too bad we are never in the same place at the same time. Take Care.
Date: Mon Oct 22 23:29:13 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Billie, thanks for sending the Kryptonics link. They certainly seem to be as rockin as all the other Oz greats. Did you ever hear a band from Pittsburg,Pa. called the Cynics? They were a great garage band from that time too. It’s funny, sometimes it seems as if the 80’s was the quintessential era for garage rock and not the 60’s (well, maybe that’s a stretch…) -E
Date: Mon Oct 22 23:12:06 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Oh yeah Paul, sorry about what happened to your friends at Cogans. Fortunately we haven’t come across anything like that. Was it an early show they were playing? Definitely sucks that they were cheated out of playing a full set. As for Halloween parties, it’s looking like I’ll be down in Raleigh. My friends, the Cherry Valence, are playing a costume ball at Kings. My girlfriend and I are talking about going as Captain and Tennile… “Love will keep us together”… -E
Date: Mon Oct 22 23:01:00 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Paul, as luck would have it, Dragstrip is playing in Roanoke that night. Figures we’d get booked for a show when Adam comes back to town. Dammit!! I hope the show goes well for you, Adam and I hope the rest of you enjoy seeing him play. On November 2 I’ll be up in the mountains pouting over missing the performance…

Date: Sun Oct 21 13:54:25 2001 Name: Ghost City/State/Country: TO ADAM SWERVIE Comment: Hey Adam if you get this in time i was wondering something. I just got a job with a production company editing video and I would like to video your show in DC if you don’t mind. But I totally want to respect your feelings and not cross any lines with you. It is a large pro grade digital camera and I was thinking that we could shoot it and if you are happy with the show maybe we could set it up on the web for everyone to watch. I don’t know if Art has enough bandwidth here but we could always link it from somewhere else. I was blown away by your show in DC in June and it would be awesome to let all the fans in on it. So if you read this before the 2nd of November please let me know what you think and if you don’t want me to I absolutely understand. My address is email@example.com if you would like to reply there. Thanks.
Date: Sun Oct 21 13:44:41 2001 Name: Ghost City/State/Country: Hampton Comment: Hey Erik I just looked Adam up on Pollstar and he’s doi8ng the Black Cat on Nov. 2nd. Ron and I were wondering if you’re in RVA that day if you want to ride with us?
Date: Sun Oct 21 13:35:06 2001 Name: Ghost City/State/Country: Hamp’n Comment: Hey Erik, How’s it going? I went to Cogan’s last night to see Mock Orange whom I really dig, but it was an early show so the opening bands waited so long to play (because noone wants to play to an empty room you know) so then Cogan’s only let Mock Orange play for 15 minutes. Now I feel weird aout Cogan’s that shit really pissed me off. So are you going to attend any Halloween parties next Sat in the RVA? I am going to come out and hope to see some people. Talk to you soon.
Date: Sun Oct 21 01:06:40 2001 Name: John City/State/Country: Seattle Comment: Hello from a SWD fan who is new to this board. A few questions: Is this the main SWD discussion site? I wasn’t able to get connected to the one mentioned on Swervie.com…. Has anything been decided about publication of Jez’s book? I absolutely laughed my ass off at some of that stuff posted here, the wife thought I was cracked…. Finally, does the band not object to trading of live shows and if so, are there any cdr traders here? I have a lot of shows on cdr by My Bloody Valentine, Catherine Wheel, Nirvana, U2, etc., but would love to trade for some live SWD. If anyone is interested they can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for my list and to arrange a trade…. Thanks. Anyway, cool site, I’ll probably be hanging out here from time to time…. John

Date: Fri Oct 19 18:58:12 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: At the moment, Raleigh NC. Comment: Hey all, just wanted to give everyone a quick shout. Last night’s show was a great time. We played with those New York City Noise-ters, Oneida. They are great guys and a phenomenal band. Check ’em out at www.enemeyhogs.com. Eric T, I must say that I’m might impressed. Not only are you an Ultra Cindy’s fan, but you’ve obviously been to Kings before too. It’s one of my favorite clubs ever. All of you in bands should try to hit it if you’re touring (www.kingsbarcade.com) Billie, I’ll check out the Kyptonics. The Scientists were a great band too, but unfortunately here in the USA their records cost an arm and a leg, so I’ve never actually owned any of their stuff. Did you ever hear that Austrailian Stooges tribute? There were many great Oz-rockers on that release. You guys definitely know how to rock down under. I hope all of you have great weekends. I need to do some more liver damage. -E

Space travel, Rock’n’swerve.
Date: Tue Oct 9 00:46:01 2001 Name: Sundog City/State/Country: Chi-Town Comment: Sadly Erik, I have to agree with your opinion of the new Spiritualized Disk. BTW, have any of you heard any of the music by the band formed from the fired members of Spiritualized? The band is called ‘Lupine Howl’ and they are supposed to be good. Speaking of Astrophysics, have any of you read that article in Discover magazine about the latest thinking in Quantum Mechanics? Basically one of the researchers is saying that there are an infinite number of ‘our’ universe with a corresponding Earth in each one, and each one of us exists in each one with different choices we made in life, etc. Now, I’m not saying that I believe that’s what is actually going on in what we refer to as the physical universe, however, if it is true, consider the implications. That would mean there is one HELL of alot of Swervedriver music we haven’t heard! Oh the depravity. If any of you make any trips into a parallel universe in the near future, bring back as much of the SWD material from there as you can for the rest of us. 🙂 Dream Well! SD

Date: Sun Oct 7 22:43:07 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Hey Kids, Hope everyone had good weekends. On Friday I saw an amazing band down in Raleigh. They’re called the Good Friday Experiment and they hail from Atlanta, Georgia. Ultra spacey guitars and keyboards over a rock solid rhythm section, awesome music. I went to a record store today and gave the new Spiritualized a quick listen. Sadly, I have to admit I wasn’t too impressed. Maybe I have to give it another try. Do any of you own it? Give me your opinions of it if you’ve heard it. I really hate that Jason fired his band, but who can ever tell with these musical geniuses these days? Seems like they’re always on the verge of some unexplainable weirdness. But anyway, take care all. Hope your weeks get off to good starts. I still haven’t decided about the damn Marauder yet. -E

Date: Fri Oct 5 07:00:02 2001 Name: snail City/State/Country: Stockton, NEWCASTLE. AUSTRALIA Comment: So, there’s something in the air which tells me these guys from swervedriver are thinkin’ tunes! Could raising the question of attempting renditions of a few select obscure tracks provide any food for thought? I was thinking maybe “Grease Lightning” off the original “Grease” motion picture soundtrack or as i’ve said before, maybe “TurningJapanese” by the Vapours? I dunno… Either way i like the idea of low scale production saying “bollocks” to the big guys. Brisbane outfit “Speedstar” are a good listen. They have “altitude” as the Pumpkins put it. There songs smoulder and soar. …And yes the Strokes have it. … go the Knights. (National Rugby League champions) …soon to be world club champs.. Youngsters Silverchair from Newcastle show how not only does Rock’nRoll save lives in this little working class city but is life once again. Interesting doco on the box called “Long way to the top” (Australia’s ABC) covered the history of Australian rock’n roll to the present and pointed to this new dawning of rock in generations coming through as they listen to their mum and dad’s velvet underground records. see ya soon

Date: Thu Oct 4 15:35:06 2001 Name: Bertrand City/State/Country: Liège\Belgium Comment: Great name Dan’l. Dan, the reason why you are so stupidly talkative is certainly the same as you write with one hand. (Just A Joke, But be quiet with that spliff) Anyway, I like astrophysics, wanted to study it but didn’t have enough physics at secondary school. Would be great you inform me of last research in that domain. And that’s certainly why you’re a Swervedriver fan, because of this stellar relationship they have both. Last, I remember some of you liked Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, saw a videoclip today on the hated MTV, sounds really great (can’t remember the name of the song though)
Date: Thu Oct 4 15:33:55 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: I saw a flyer here on campus for a ’76 Gibson Marauder for sale. They were probably the cheapest guitars Gibson ever made, but I always had a fascination with them. They have a Les Paul body and a Flying V headstock. Really strange looking guitar. Have any of you gits-heads out there ever owned or played one? I’d be interested in your input. -E
Date: Thu Oct 4 15:33:27 2001 Name: dan City/State/Country: bradford Comment: hey dont compare my typing to Rick Allens drumming…i can type without the aid of a bunch of fancy pedals
Date: Thu Oct 4 13:53:44 2001 Name: Dan’l City/State/Country: ChiIL Comment: BTW, listening to SWD made me go out and buy a guitar – an Epiphone LP Studio (with a Roland Cube-40 for $150 USD). Not the most well built thing, but dang does it have hot pickups – now all I need are some pedals (cuz I like that pedal-pusher sound). Hmmmmm…. now there’s a band name… The Pedal Pushers….
Date: Thu Oct 4 13:43:41 2001 Name: Dan’l City/State/Country: ChiIL Comment: OK, from a drummers’ POV…. I have a degree in nothing, but I like to think I play well. Can the rocket scientists pull off Bruford-style 15/7, triplets, double bass? Not that I can (well, my triplets are clean)… and bradford dan, if Rick Allen can play one-handed, you can type one-handed!
Date: Thu Oct 4 13:08:54 2001 Name: dan City/State/Country: bradford Comment: and the reason i am not putting capital letters at the start of names and sentences is not because i dont know how to use capital letters, but coz i am typing onehanded,not because im having a tug but coz ive got a spliff on the go
Date: Thu Oct 4 13:05:35 2001 Name: dan City/State/Country: bradford Comment: on the thing about well qualified drummers…dave(frequently on here) drums for brazil and has a psycology (i know that is spelt wrong) degree and is built like a streak of piss. i have a degree in astrophysics but i dont drum and i have a fat belly(i only told you that coz i didnt want everyone to think im thick coz i cant spell)

Date: Thu Oct 4 08:23:58 2001 Name: Dan’i City/State/Country: ChiIL Comment: Erik, I was wondering the same thing. I hit a couple currency exchanges for an international money order and they didn’t know what I was talking about. Ian – I’m workin’ on it – hit me up with your address, bro – I deleted it by accident… D’oh!
Date: Thu Oct 4 02:38:08 2001 Name: seb City/State/Country: midlander Comment: This is bizarre,In england, if you’ve ever been in a band. Everybody knows the longstanding stereotype of a drummer. There (unfairly) portrayed as neanderthalls who hit things. Well last night I auditioned a drummer with a PHd in enviromental sciences. Its just the most amazing thing. Anyone know any other drummers who are ‘well qualified’?

Also, I’ll have that Englebert Humperdick record too…the crraazzy swingin’ cat that he is!! Will start tappin tommorow dave.
Date: Wed Oct 3 04:53:55 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Right.. Listen up you lot and listen good, for here is a story of intreeg and amazement. Paul from my band was out in Glasgow yesterday happily doing his usual rounds around the charity shops in a place called Partick. Anyway, whilst trawling through the usual vast selection of Engilbert Humperdink, Barry Manillo and Sydney Devine classics he spotted out the corner of his eye…no…it cant be…IT FUCKING IS!! a brand spanking new limited edition copy of Duel on 12″ with a print inside. “Well fuck me sideways” he thought as he picked it up. But as he did he noticed something else. No…it cant be… IT FUCKING IS!! another copy….and another…and another..and a bloody nother, and so on until the total tally reached a massive 8 copys!!!! all with Ltd edition prints inside. And thus endeth the tale of Pauls spendid day. And so it has been past on to me to offer one to anyone who wants one. Paul is on the dole and thus would like a £6 donation (inc p&p)made payable to the Paul Wilson Poverty Relief Fund so he does’nt have to go and get a job like the rest of us good tax paying people. If your interested give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org. Trik and Dan – Your stuff is on its way. A thanku

Date: Tue Oct 2 23:16:49 2001 Name: Sundog City/State/Country: Chi-Town Comment: …gotta make another noisy record again soon… Next to the new TH 4 tracks being released, that has to be the best news we have heard in awhile. Thanks for the update Adam. Everyday, Rock and Roll is saving my life as well. SD
Date: Tue Oct 2 19:48:42 2001 Name: Paulo City/State/Country: Real Comment: Let me add to my previous msg that by “getting quite close” i meant tthat, besides being talented, Duel are very competent in emulating sounds and textures peculiar to swervedriver’s songs. But I did listen to each and every song available on mp3.com and no doubt they still lack what I’d call the Franklin-Hartridge factor (a powerful rock-n-roll catalyzer that I suppose could turn even the most nightmarish N’Sync performances into pretty decent music…okay, i may have exaggerated a lil bit. N’Sync is hours concours..). Btw, if you search for swervedriver on mp3.com you’ll get a list of 88 ‘similar bands’, some of which are quite interesting (i didn’t check out all of them): Volplane, Whitford, Sciflyer (and of course Duel). I also finally got to listen to Brazil and liked it very much, tho it’s certaily a different sound. I figure they would appeal to the surf crowds over here andelsewhere. And the stylish homepage is great too. Cheers

Date: Mon Oct 1 23:41:37 2001 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Time to guitar geek it here for a little bit. On Friday I bought a ’72 Telecaster reissue! Man, it is amazing. My band played two gigs this weekend so I got to christen it in a major way. I think it’s my new favorite guitar that I own. I noticed that Jimmy Chamberlin played a Tele from time to time. They’re great for rocking out and for playing textured parts because they really pierce. Steve, I hung out with Andre today. He and Dana are getting married September 13, 2002! I’m to be the best man and he wants you to come up to Virginia if you can. It’s cool that he’s finally tying the knot. Their first date was the Swervedriver show at Mary Washington in ’98. Perhaps that’s a good sign. Hope all of you are doing well. Thanks so much for all your words of encouragement. -E

Date: Mon Oct 1 21:02:12 2001 Name: Paulo City/State/Country: Real Comment: Geez, have you checked out that band named ´Duel´ on mp3.com? It~s a swedish band(I guess someone wrote about it somet ime ago). Those guys REALLY want to sound like the swervies (and are actuallgy getting quite close…Adam, if I were you i~d go to court….just kidding :). Guess I~ll buy all of their stuff just in case.

Date: Mon Oct 1 05:07:28 2001 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgos Comment: Adam – I WANNA!! I WANNA!! I had a tape my mate Richy Dempsey gave us with what sounded like 4 track versions of Last Train to Satansville (not the revisited version), Up From the Sea and a different version of Lead Me Where You dare which I thought were majik untill I sucked the tape into my hoover while cleaning my car causing irepareable damage and much distress upon my person. Looking forward to the Toshack EP. I hope you lot will come up here if you tour again. If your reading this we’re playing King Tuts on Friday the 19th of October if you fancy a gig (you gotta try). We always get a good crowd so it would be worth your while. Feels cheeky saying this but could’nt resist. Come on folks. Back us up.
