Once I figure it all out I’ll make a permanent link here on the site for it. For now, just go to www.shoutcast.com and do a search for Swervedriver. What’s all this about a Sianspheric split 7″?

Chizzy- I haven’t been to Buffalo for a while, but I remember being so jazzed that they were coming through that I was toying with the idea of heading down your way (and maybe even Ottawa)in a crazy swervie stalker trip. Didn’t happen though. Who are you with anyway?

Date: Mon Jan 28 23:49:32 2002 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Art, I’m getting that classic “no response” message where it says either the server is down or the program is not responding. Hopefully you get it worked out. Some 24/7 Swerve surely sounds sweet!! And yes!! I do know the Oregon Hill Funk Allstars. Well, not personally, but I have seen them play. The irony in their band name is that Oregon Hill is the kind of the poor, white, redneck-ish neighborhood of downtown Richmond. Did they play up in NYC? I’m glad you got a little Richmond flavor your way. If only we could get our asses back up there…(sigh). All in due time. Good luck with your technical work. -E
Date: Mon Jan 28 23:25:11 2002 Name: art City/State/Country: nuts Comment: that’s strange. Everything looks like it should be working. oh well, I will keep at it. The idea was to have a Swervedriver ShoutCast server running 24/7. Right now it’s all b-sides and rarities. Soon I’ll add live stuff. But if I can’t get it to work then… Actually Mac users with Audion can login and check it, too. Erik & Zach, exactly what problems were you guys experiencing? Sorry to be all business, but I’ve been swamped with work and such lately. I promise to return soon with some social skills! Hey Erik, are you familiar with the Oregon Hill Funk Allstars? I saw them briefly on Saturday night. Actually, my friend’s brother is the drummer. Just thought you might know them. Thanks for the tech support!

Date: Mon Jan 28 22:44:59 2002 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Ghostie-O, the only thing I have by the Creation is some bootleg CD called “Red with Purple Flashes.” I bought it like eight years ago when no one cared about the Creation and their music had yet to be re-released. I think if you get any of the greatest hits/collection CDs you should be good to go. Just make sure “Making Time” and “How does it Feel to Feel” are on there. Those are definte necessities. I’m sure just about everyone here remembers Ride’s version of the ladder of those two. Good version indeed. -E

Anyway, I think they haven’t split but they’re having a one year break to concentrate on some parallel band projects. They’ll be back very soon now I think. I’d like to pass that step ’cause they deserve everyone’s attention!
Date: Mon Jan 28 06:21:14 2002 Name: Tuomas City/State/Country: Helsinki Comment: Bertrand, is it true that dEUS has come to the end of their saga? The last time I heard from them was when they annouced to quit touring for good… pity, another great band that I’ve missed…

Date: Sun Jan 27 14:22:24 2002 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Deus? They must be one of those bands from the great era that slipped through my fingers. Speaking of which, this weekend I found used copies of “Lido” by Th’ Faith Healers and the Verve “Lucky Man” single, (the good one with “Longest Day” on it). It’s been a fine a weekend. The band played a great show in Wilmington, NC. I’d never been there before, beautiful place with good peeps. Hope everyone’s weeks get off to a good pace. “Every Monday morning comes too soon,” but that’s ok because, “I’ve got Friday on my mind”… -E

But I did hear a rumour about them having all been street buskers. Hope all is well in swervie land and we all had a good new years and all that…
Date: Sat Jan 26 10:48:57 2002 Name: Hairy Haw City/State/Country: Glesga Comment: I have indeed heard of Deus, though only the first single they released over here in ’93 or ’94. Fucking excellent it was.

Date: Fri Jan 25 12:11:42 2002 Name: DTC City/State/Country: TEXAS Comment: Ian- tell your management to go fuck themselves. You guys play what you want and never, ever bow out to the man! Thats the only thing thats going to save us from shit like nu-metal.
Date: Fri Jan 25 08:09:47 2002 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Mogwai fans – If you like rock action by Ten Rapid which is a collection of early EPs on CD. Fuckin notch! Reckon post rock is dying a bit though. We’ve just bin told by our management we’re a bit too prog and they want some more ‘basic’ tunes. I blame nu-metal me-self…….

Date: Thu Jan 24 21:52:27 2002 Name: sam City/State/Country: Comment: mogwai….rock action is a must have for any swd fan. when i listen to that album i wonder why the guys from swd are not producing more music. they are so talented and there is obviously a desire for music like this these days…and there are so many musicians that just wish they could be half as good!!! what gives!!!???
Date: Thu Jan 24 21:17:43 2002 Name: Brian City/State/Country: Toledo, OH Comment: Brett- last time I saw them in ’98, on 99th dream, the dreads were gone. it was great, the crowd sucked but the boys were better than ever. we hung out after the show and drank and other stuff, (ya know), had some great conversation. I have some live videos from Raise, and the videos from MTV. I’d be willing to make copies for copies of other old songs I don’t have. Although you can get some rare and live stuff from places like Audiogalaxy and stuff like that. Let me know if anyone is interested.

Date: Tue Jan 22 23:09:06 2002 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Hey all, I hope everyone had good weekends. I’m at work right now, half drunk. A regional magazine called 64 just released their annual music issue. We were invited to be a part of the issue, the attached CD, and even better, we were invited to their private CD release party. The shebang took place earlier this evening on the third floor of the headquarters for a corporate bank. I felt extremely weird being surrounded by a bunch of suited corporate honkeys, but I gotta say I loved the free booze. Afterwards, Kevin, the other guitarist for DSS, and I went around to the corner to the local British Pub, Penny Lane, (Yes, that’s right, there’s an authentic British pub here in Richmond owned by two old Liverpudlians), and we drank even more. There’s something all too wonderful about being fucked up at work and having no one else notice… I hope all is well w/ everyone else. Ghost, goddammit one of these days I’ll be in town while you are here, I promise. -E

Erik I have been thinking about getting one of those players for so long. Is it the light brown colored record player that weighs a ton and has like a burlap cover over the speaker?

Date: Thu Jan 17 23:29:12 2002 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Indeed a sweet bit of info about the vinyl, gents. I’ve been even more vinyl crazy than usual because I recently bought an old elementary school, govenment issue, portable record player. It was built in 1961 or so and it rules!! My records have been sounding so sweet on it. This morning I christened my 7″‘s by listening to “Why Say Yeah” and “93 Million Miles”. Tonight, at Plan 9 records, I found two amazing collectable Otis Redding records. I was a happy man to find those. But anyway, I hope you all have good weekends. My girl and I are spending the weekend at the beach. And yes, the record player’s coming with us, along with some 60’s soul and some Swerve… -E

Date: Thu Jan 17 02:33:28 2002 Name: Tuomas City/State/Country: Helsinki Comment: baptiste, I found the answer: “The Porky Prime Cut comes from Porky’s mastering studio in Shaftesbury Avenue which is the legendary vinyl cutting place. This is the stage in between the final studio mixing and the manufacturing of the vinyl. George Peckham (Porky to his mates) always puts Porky Prime Cut on his vinyl. It originally came from when he did bootleg vinyl in the 60s. The “Porky Prime Cut” was like a quality stamp, designed to let the purchaser know that they were buying something at least halfway listenable. The reason that the band scratched additional comments on the vinyl for the first few years is that the band would attend the vinyl mastering session and add the comments themselves whilst sitting around reading endless back copies of Studio Sound magazine. The CD master was then usually done as an unattended job later on. However from around 1992/1993 onwards, CD had become the prevailing format and the vinyl was then the afterthought. Hence the band would be there for the CD mastering session but the vinyl would be cut later in their absence. Hence the lack of witty comments in the run out grooves. If someone would care to list all the run-out groove comments then I’ll go through and explain them. thanks Dave —– Original Message —– From: “Guy Brookfield” To: ; Sent: Friday, January 11, 2002 9:51 AM Subject: Re: vinyl veiws…. > — “lethe” wrote: > > >I maybe didn’t explain myself clearly, but I do think the WHAT is written on the ride vinyl (the majority at least) is self explanatory, I was actually asking if anyone knew why they did it in the first place, was it just reserved for certain vinyl?

The Smiths did a similar thing with their Rough Trade stuff. The ‘Porky Prime’ stamp probably referred to the pressing plant Creation used when they were still ‘indie’ (for want of a better word). Also, I remember reading in Vox or some similar rawk publication around the time of GBA that a lot of vinyl plants were closing down, since record companies were trying to phase out the medium, so maybe the later records were pressed abroad where there was no scope for putting messages in the run-out grooves. Or, maybe Creation switched pressing plants after the Sony take-over in 1992. This is all speculation, of course… – Guy from www.space-trash.co.uk” So there it is… I think

We Americans always seem to get the shaft when it comes to U.S. releases. That’s an interesting little difference. I just got a brand new copy of “Never Lose that feeling” on 12 inch vinyl today. And it came from Scotland. From a store called Groovy Vinyl in Moray? Maybe you’ve heard of them Ian. I am curious are the cds you have on 2 different lables or 2 different distributors? Do they have different dates on them or different colors? And can I say different one more time? I am sorry I just got off of work and it retards me a little. There is nothing funny about being handicapped but today in my store I helped 2 clowns in wheelchairs. And when I say clowns I don’t mean jerks or fools, these were actual party clowns rolling around in electronic wheelchairs. They were shopping for file cabinets. It made me feel INSANE.

Date: Tue Jan 15 09:15:56 2002 Name: Haw City/State/Country: Comment: Sorry- have a good one, Ian!
Date: Tue Jan 15 09:15:06 2002 Name: The Haw City/State/Country: Same place Comment: No idea, Matey!! I have it on vinyl and noticed the different title on someone elses CD ages ago. Did make me wonder… Swervie’s- Any clues?
Date: Tue Jan 15 06:24:40 2002 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgos Comment: Question!… I’ve got 2 copys of Mezcal head in the house and i noticed for the first time the other day that on one CD Mickey is called Mickey and on the other its called MM Abduction. Anyone know why? Also me band Terra Diablo are playing The Little Back Yard this Thursday in London if anyone’s about.
Date: Mon Jan 14 22:59:56 2002 Name: Zach City/State/Country: L.A. Comment: I was just listening to Ned’s Atomic Dustbin – Are You Normal, and it brought me back to the early 90s today. That’s a damn fine album for those who haven’t checked it out. Also, Explosions in the Sky is quickly becoming a fave. That band seriously rocks. cheers, Zach
Date: Mon Jan 14 22:53:23 2002 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: By the way Art, I wanted to thank you mentioning mine and everyone else’s bands in your posting a few weeks back. There’s a lotta love going on here in Swerveland…
Date: Mon Jan 14 22:49:35 2002 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Did any of you by any chance ever listen to this band called Poem Rocket? They were originally from my neck of the woods, but they relocated to NYC. I’m not sure if they’re still together, but they are great, man. They’re like early Slowdive, MBV, Sonic Youth, even Cure-esque here and there. I would recommend “Felix Culpa” and “Infinite Retry on Timeout”. “Milky White Entropy” and “Period” from the F.C. album are beautiful, lamentful songs that hit the spot with me all day, just like it was 1995 all over again. But anyway, this weekend was a good one for me. My band played two great shows and the Royal Tennenbaums is an outstanding movie with great tunes. Go see it when you get a chance. I hope everyone else had a good weekend as well. -E

Date: Sun Jan 13 01:47:10 2002 Name: Paulo City/State/Country: REal Comment: Last one and Im done for the weekend (i swear):This is probly no news to R.E.M fans but today I noticed something about the feline face on the cover of “Monster”. If you turn it upside down it looks like an edited image of Che Guevara (maybe two images), with the beard and cap…Ok, bye now…
Date: Sun Jan 13 01:31:38 2002 Name: Leah@Ryerson City/State/Country: Toronto, Canada Comment: Swervedriver – what can I say! You, Built to Spill, GBV, and a few other trippy folks, got me through a rather mellow and enlightening Christmas season! Cheers, boys!
Date: Sat Jan 12 20:15:24 2002 Name: Fabio City/State/Country: Italy – Casale M. Comment: Hiya! Don’t know why, but today my mind begun to think about swervedrive… I remembered the first time I heard RAISE… yeah… just like makin’ love… so cool. Thank you Swerve for your music and for everything you help me to remember… F.
Date: Sat Jan 12 02:48:06 2002 Name: Paulo City/State/Country: REal Comment: Me again (promise to spare all the “geez” this time…). I was rummaging among old files and found out I too have something swerve to trade: a creation poster signed by tje band (actually I’vegot two, the other one has been hanging on an notice board for ages to remind me that once upon a time there existed a thing called rock and roll…):O It’s not in mint condition but still quite hang-able and I’d swap for live swerve videos, especially of the Raise or ESR era. Is anybody here in possession of such exotic delicacies? // Good to hear about Medicine. I’ve recently bought a record by a band called Lusk, which I’d read was the solo project of Tool’s bassist and was worth a listen. I thought it to be both weird and good at the same time . As I read the credits who should I find there but Mr. Brad Laner! No wonder…//”Her words profane, her mouth divine/I tend to sympathize with both sides…” — Mainman in Mercury Rev (forgot his name…)

Date: Fri Jan 11 20:49:09 2002 Name: Barry G City/State/Country: NYC Comment: Hey friends- I decided to part with a cool stash of my original SWERVEDRIVER concert posters. They are all on Ebay under the name “paperhed”. Have a look and happy bidding!!! Thanx- BG
Date: Fri Jan 11 13:14:27 2002 Name: art City/State/Country: NYC Comment: Hey folks, happy new year and all that lot. It’s good to see this board as active as ever. Been DJing a lot lately and will do so tonight. If anyone is in NYC and wants to rock, check out www.jrfunk.com for details. I WILL be spinning SWD. Als, Barry G, email me (link at the bottom of this page) I’ve got tons of stuff. Cheers all! Art
Date: Fri Jan 11 02:28:50 2002 Name: Tuomas City/State/Country: Helsinki Comment: Might be a long shot but anyway… does anybody know why so many Creation Record vinyls have sentence, “a porky prime cut”, carved on them? Erik, your wisdom and knowledge on irrelavant info is needed here 🙂
Date: Fri Jan 11 00:03:39 2002 Name: Zach City/State/Country: LA Comment: Erik…no way!! I had no idea. I used to love Medicine. I wondered what happened to their singer. Who knew she was married to Jez? Cool piece of info, thanks. I for one can’t wait for the weekend. My job is killing this week. -Z-
Date: Thu Jan 10 15:50:33 2002 Name: Erik City/State/Country: RVA Comment: Did you guys know that the girl who sang for Medicine is Jez’s wife? That’s either going to irrelavant or obvious information to you all, but I thought I’d say it anyway. Hope all is well. Have good weekends everyone. -E
Date: Thu Jan 10 10:54:06 2002 Name: est City/State/Country: T.O. Comment: I agree Mike, Medicine opening for Swerve was cool, love that band, I almost like the second album more than the first though? Must be played loud. e.
Date: Thu Jan 10 02:24:05 2002 Name: mike City/State/Country: boston, ma. Comment: medicine-what ever happened to them? brad is electric company(i think)-and beth??? i saw them open for swd in jan. of 1994(mescal head)-they were great:) that show is one of the best ive ever seen in my 28 years:)
Date: Thu Jan 10 01:41:44 2002 Name: Sundog City/State/Country: Chi-Town Comment: I just picked up the second Medicine CD for $3.00 US. It had some good songs on it. But the first CD is still the best. I had to listen to ‘Christmas Song’ cranked up. That is such an awesome song! Made me want to hear some new LOUD SWD. Here’s hoping. Dream well…
Date: Wed Jan 9 17:28:35 2002 Name: hairy haw City/State/Country: uh huh Comment: Ghost-Santa Claus pulled the ride set out of sack for me, but I’m pretty sure you can pick it up on amazon. Don’t quote me though!!
Date: Wed Jan 9 00:51:26 2002 Name: Barry G City/State/Country: BIG APPLE Comment: Does anyone have SWERVE videos/audio to trade?? Especially off master. I have a few audio masters I did myself as well as 2 Toshack gigs. I met Adam at his 1st nyc toshack gig and he was extremely cool! He signed a huge Virgin live-in-store poster for me. I have one left to trade (which isn’t signed). I’ve seen hundreds of bands in my life and still, Swervedriver ranks upon the best. Period. Cheers-Barry G.
Date: Tue Jan 8 21:30:03 2002 Name: Paulo City/State/Country: REal Comment: WoW! 2002’s already here! Went with me girlfriend and friends to a nice lil’ town upstate for the holidays and drove back while listening to Drop Nineteens, geez, does anyone know if any of those guys still into the rock and roll biz? Geez how I luv that third song from first album (delaware?)//Saw Lord of the Rings yesterday…and llluved it! Reminded me of the good ol’ days spent on Middle Earth Role Playing (and Rolemaster) adventures with the other members of what I could call the Fellowship of Nerds…To be honest I had the impression that Tolkien’s world was something of a Middle Ages without Christianity (and now I tend to prefer the real thing) but it certainly is a MARVELOUS novel and the movie’s very good indeed (altho you can’t compare them of course…I remember reading an interview with an acclaimed french director who said that the reason for his success was that his films were nevere based on Classics, for you simply can’t make much out of a Classic…). //Listened to some stuff by Exps in the Sky, great songs, gotta get that cd. //Stephen from Jersey, just three words for you: you lucky bastard!//Ain’t got the new TH yet, boy am I late!//Ride, Creation comp, geez, lotsa catch up with, guess i’ll turn in now and come back tomorrow, cya……

Date: Tue Jan 8 04:34:07 2002 Name: Tuomas City/State/Country: Helsinki Comment: Ghost, hey I live in Finland so yes, I had to order it… few good places to find it would be www.hmv.co.uk or www.oxfordmusic.net (costs ’bout 30 £ or so)

Date: Mon Jan 7 18:54:09 2002 Name: ghost City/State/Country: Happy AfterChristmasLand Comment: Hi Last night I went to the japanese amazon website and I couldn’t read anything on the page cause it’s in Japanese, but I put in Swervedriver and the first thing that came up was a Creation records 2 cd set that has a blue cover and it’s called Creation Records “International Guardians of Rock n’ Roll 1983-1999” does any one have this? I then looked it up on amazon uk and amazon usa and it didn’t come up. I want to order it it’s 3600 yen but I can’t read that shit to get to the order forms. Also you guys that got the Ride Box set did you have to order it? Or do you live in places unlike Hampton Va that carry it in stores? Well happy year 2000. Oh, it’s 2002. Does it even matter anymore? I think we peaked at 2000. For the rest of my life it’s just going to be the year 2000, ok? Goodnight.
Date: Mon Jan 7 13:46:46 2002 Name: Chris City/State/Country: England Comment: Have to agree, the ride box-set is ace. I think that the live CD is probably the best though. Looking forward to the Swervedriver live CD i must say.
Date: Mon Jan 7 09:04:40 2002 Name: Hairold Haw City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Happy New Year all. Mike-the Ride Box-set is Fucking Brilliant. There’s a couple of tunes on the un-released CD that I totally don’t understand why they never got released ‘cos they’re amazing (tongue-tied, Blue). The wee booklet it came with made me feel WELL nostalgic. Ah, the haircuts…….
Date: Mon Jan 7 02:34:54 2002 Name: Tuomas City/State/Country: Helsinki Comment: Mike, I have it (the box-set) and it sure is worth buying…
Date: Sun Jan 6 23:57:01 2002 Name: Dan’l City/State/Country: ChiIl Comment: Yikes! Well, the songs are good, aren’t they. Quality. That’s what I look for in a guitar band! 🙂 SWD has held up over the years, and I dig those who appreciate the same qualities. Cheers, Ian! Keep yer arm! BTW folks, I wuz bored at work the other day, that’s how that “Live SWD” thing happened. I thought I remembered hearing about some live material being slaved over, something about “She’s Beside Herself” bein’ the chit… so c’mon… what’s the word?
Date: Sat Jan 5 08:24:12 2002 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Dan – I FUCKIN LOVE YOU MAN!! No I mean it. I realy fuckin love ya!!! And I’m not even pissed….anymore. A guzillion thankus to you my friend for making my life compleat and getting those CDs to me. I know now that when my time on this beautiful earth is up I can die a truly happy man. I am now off to the post office to send you the ESR cd and and hack off my right arm which I always promised Id give for those songs so if a big bloody arm shaped package turns up on your door dont be too disturbed, theres an ESR CD in there just for you you wonderfull, wonderfull man you!!!!

Date: Fri Jan 4 13:42:41 2002 Name: Erik City/State/Country: DC, (at the moment). Comment: Hey all, I’ve been away for awhile. I haven’t been around a computer very much these days. I hope everyone’s New Year is off to a good start. I’m looking forward to what 2002 has to offer. Paul, yeah the snow is definitely weird. Here in DC it’s sunny and beautiful, (but chilly). I’m about to head back to Richmond, I’ll probably hit some snow there. But anyway, sorry about the wheather report, people. I’ve missed talking to all of you. Steve, give me a call in Richmond when you get the chance. It looks like I’ll be there until April 1st. That’s when Robin and I are moving in together in Raleigh. I’ll talk to you soon. Take care everybody. Happy New Year!! Whoo!!!!! -Erik

Craploads better than Rock Action. Check em out, they’re on Temporary Residence records. After that: Lift to Experience, the New Year, the Clean, Techno Animal, Creeper Lagoon, Labradford, the Pilot Ships, Stars of the Lid, Amnesiac, M Rev, New Order.
