I just wanted to share a link that was sent to me:- http://www.flaminglips.com/player/ The new Flaming Lips album!!!! Yahs, is jolly good!!!! Meslikes the sounds of a collabaration TH/FL tour!!!! Has anyone heard the new Promise Ring album???? It REALLY strange, compared to the first. I read (sorry, I know that I shouldn’t believe EVERYTHING I read, this has come up before, quite recently on this very msg board!!) But something about the lead singer having had a brain tumor removed… anyone know of this???

Date: Sun Jul 28 19:14:53 2002 Name: paulo City/State/Country: wherever Comment: This one’s from Jon of Superchunk. He writes in his 2001 tour diary about the time he worked in a record shop and attended a lady that was looking for a record by the Clash: “This reminds me of the time I worked in a record store in Greensboro, N.C. and a woman came in seeking “Rock The Casbah” and asked my co-worker for the song that had the lyric “Siamese don’t like it, not the cat’s fault.”” Hehe, this is superb! I think if Jez quit publishing the book, at least he could write his tour memories and put them on the site. I remember the Swervies’InfoZine used to offer marvelous stories about the band’s trips and gigs.//I heard that the new issue of Spin magazine comes with an article on the resurgent wave of college rock in the U.S. If this is true, it may be good news indeed. Think I’ll wait for it get quality and then head for Boston, the coolest city in the U.S. (sorry new yorkers, l.a.ers, friscoles, etc…), and hopefully get to see some shows.//and yeah, “musical algorithm”, too metaphysical definitely, I think “timeless and unique” should suffice :)//”Sounds and spells, magic blast/who cares what they cast…” (Jonathan Mercury Rev)
Date: Sat Jul 27 18:32:11 2002 Name: Paulo City/State/Country: Nightcap Comment: This is last call so let me just reiterate my point about the Beatles: The fab four have nothing to do with time and doesnt belong on that list (let alone when placed side-by-side with Korn…). Beatles/Stones, Bach/Beethoven, Miles Davis/Bill Evans (please buy the album “Alone” and you’ll understand), these are all parts of the musical algorithm, you just can’t compare…//Cheers!
Date: Sat Jul 27 12:53:31 2002 Name: Stewart City/State/Country: with a T Comment: now I got it right!
Date: Sat Jul 27 12:50:30 2002 Name: Paulo City/State/Country: wherever Comment: Ok, I gave up quoting Mr. Rabid, the whole text’s worth a reading (unless you’re a true, poster-hanging fan of the Strokes…). I don’t know if any of know took the time to read Spin’s article on “The 50 Greatest Bands of All Time”. I know EVERYONE would say yes to some names, and no to others. I acquiesced to several bands in that list, despite the fact that they’d never spend an hour on my turntable. But, apart from some laughable suggestions (Korn?), there’s one serious mistake I’d like to point out. They chose Beatles for number one but this is wrong. “Of All Time” presuposes history, the passage of time. But Beatles is A-HISTORICAL. We’re talking metaphysics here, come ON…//Vdub, if you’re a big fan of Swirlies, do not miss out on those two new tunes, whihc I hope are the forerunner of a full-lenght LP that’s sure to be among the very best this(or next year), if they don’t fill it too much with those random noise bursts with announcements (the last LP “They Spent Their Wild…” had too many fake tracks filled solely with screech-scratch…)//M’afraid the gentleman I mentioned down there goes by the name of Steward Copeland, and not “Steve”. Cya!

Date: Sat Jul 27 03:35:18 2002 Name: Fester City/State/Country: We gots the Pope! Comment: Ian’s got something there. I remember ages ago Jez talking about a vacation/trip that included a visit with The Dandy Warhols and then Steven, the drummer of the Flaming Lips. I also remember talking with Steve George ages ago, and when the subject of the Lips came up, he said something like, “Hey, they’re just like us!” Not so much as a direct comparison, but more in a philisophical way. Anyway, my point is is that there may be a connection of some sort between the swervies/Toshack and the Lips. On an another note, just saw Ocean’s Eleven and there’s a very cool tune right at the end of the movie that totally reminded me of Cars Converge on Paris. Just some random thoughts y’all. Hope the weekend treats ya right. Cheers!

Date: Thu Jul 25 11:11:47 2002 Name: vdub City/State/Country: kc Comment: Good to hear the swirlies are still kickin it. Their two long players are classics but nobody knows about ’em. Yeah, lips & toshack would make a great live show. I saw the radar bros. last night and they blew me away. Their new album kicks ass and they can pull it off live.
Date: Thu Jul 25 06:21:22 2002 Name: Dave City/State/Country: St.Helens Comment: Sunset, Hmmmm I havent had a go at tabbing it to be honest. Im getting a new guitar soon so im sure it will be put to good use with figuring out sunset. Apparently hairy haw is quite close to figuring it out as well as feel so real. Take it easy dudes…
Date: Thu Jul 25 05:55:53 2002 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Right!! I’ve got a question. I just heard the new Flaming Lips album and by the end of it found I had to change my attire cause I *** myself at the sheer, utter, unbelievable magnificance and beauty of it…which leads me to the question. Why the fuck arnt Toshack Highway supporting them at some point on they’re tour!!!??!? The similarities in sound between the two albums sticks out a mile!! In fact, I’m going to the Lips website to put messages up telling everyone to get the Toshack album (if you can still get it) in the vain hope that someone might see bloody sense and book what could be the gig of the fucking century!! Who’s comin?….

Date: Wed Jul 24 23:38:53 2002 Name: paulo City/State/Country: cosmic rough riding Comment: Just read (only too late, I know…) Mr. Jack Rabid’s text on “2001 in Music (A Look Back)” (bigtakeover.com), lotsa fun indeed. A 10-page overview (no photos!) on last year’s feats and defeats, lots of info and an optimistic conclusin (“I…am pleased to note the second straight year of improvemnt over the moribund 1999”). Judging by the steep slump in the teen junk pop sales, it certainly may be true. Here’s an excerpt that deserves full quoting: >. Heheh, spot on. He also suggests that “the time is ripe for something big to happen, but no one knows how to find the future in music”. It certainly is time for a new pied piper to call the tune here, but I don’t nourish that kind of hope…It’s not that I don’t want it to happen, the prob is it takes a lot of inspiration, it takes a Brian Wilson, a Townshend, a Steve Copeland, a Frank Black…At one point the scene was such that we had to bring in T-W-O Reid brothers in order to fix it. It’s hard graft, seriously…Meanwhile I keep diggin deeper underground looking for good stuff to listen, and there’s a LOT of good stuff happening. Wanna a tip? Go to bakedbean.net and try a song called “I Think I’m Leaving Camus” by Alotia. One and 1/2 minutes of pure cristaline pixies-ish pop that’s also very well played (listen for the drums), by a band that, judging from the other songs available, seems to be fighting on the post-rock front (Tortoise-style). And what a good surprise to find also at bakedbean.net that Swirlies are still rocking, and rocking SERIOUS.”Give us moon rocks”, brilliant new tune, beautiful melodic lines squeezed between two chunks of string-pounding guitar chords…and of course the classic soothing vocals of Mr. Tutunjian. Talk about high-wrought lo-fi gems (if I may..). Ok, time to give Cosmic Rough Rider’s record another spin (Ok, only too late, I know…) and stash some cash to by the BigTakeover. g’night!

Date: Wed Jul 24 19:38:44 2002 Name: Mike City/State/Country: Boston, Ma. Comment: CHIZZY – Did you know that line from “Mars” came from the song “Rocketman” by Elton John? I also think “Mars” contains lyrics from “Sunset”. Dave, my man, have you ever given “Sunset” a stab for tab?
Date: Wed Jul 24 17:12:27 2002 Name: CHIZZY City/State/Country: SAME PLACE AS ROY Comment: “mars ain’t the place to raise a kid, in fact it’s cold as hell…” I’m not sure if those are spot-on, but they sorta remind me of “stranger in a strange land” by heinlein….

The most recent one (sorry, don’t know the title) was pretty alright too.

Adam and Eve is pretty good, but they went downhill after the first two. Ferment, though, what a classic!! It gives me such good memories of the end of my high school years. Cheers, Zach.

There’s some fucking amazing work on that album (AJFA)(which was their last good one– I might add). I still listen to it quite often. Finally heard that swerviestock accepted payment from me, anyway. I guess that’s good news. Can’t wait to hear “It’s All Happening Now” off of ESR in good quality. Whoever has that Jazzy is one lucky bloke- I’ll tell you what. Later all– off to band practice with chizz (I think … there’ll be beer drinkin’ anyway…)
Date: Mon Jul 15 14:17:36 2002 Name: brYan City/State/Country: Comment: I’m with Hairy on the Jazzmaster… if I had my paws on that, it would take a bullet to the head to cause me to part with it! As for Mr. Matt in Jersey… I’ve got no real qualms until you start listing Bon Jovi… I mean… shit mate, come on now!! he’s a REAL great musician… FOR ME TO POOP ON!!! (HA!) Any near hostilities you may rcvd are clearly based on the fact that this is a message board, and any big solicitations, even ones put up by ADAM are done through e-mail and postings on other sights, which may be linked… it’s all about proper social mores and etiquette.
Date: Mon Jul 15 14:15:04 2002 Name: Dave City/State/Country: St.Helens Comment: I like speed metal (old metallica and megadeth) because its just a display of skill and amazing talent. Its good music (not sure about the lyrics though….) (hehe).

Date: Mon Jul 15 12:24:04 2002 Name: Hairy haw City/State/Country: glasgow Comment: Hallo everyone. Long time no type. Hope yer all doin’ good. regardin’ Adam’s guitar (and wherever you are, you are a lucky, lucky person), I don’t think any amount of cash would make me part with it. Maybe I’m just daft.
Date: Mon Jul 15 07:59:42 2002 Name: Seb City/State/Country: Midlander Comment: Yngwie Malmsteen—–Ughh! I actually saw him live in 1988 when I was a wee nipper. I just thinkk he’s boring. I think most shred guitar is…theres a couiple I like as players but….its like learning to paint quickly…
Date: Mon Jul 15 04:45:04 2002 Name: Dave City/State/Country: Mechanists Hideout Comment: Yeah, Relax. This messageboard is filled with loads of cool people who are just chilled out. They dont go bezerk if you like a strange type of music. Its just classic here. VINTAGE! Cya later guys. its good to be back (just came back from holiday).

Date: Fri Jul 5 18:29:32 2002 Name: est City/State/Country: TO Comment: That’s super cool Chizzy, my friends band also were support for Sloan on a few Ontario dates. Hmmm, trip to Buffalo eh? We’ll see what’s in the books!
Date: Wed Jul 3 18:37:31 2002 Name: roy Mcboy City/State/Country: beefalo Comment: Fester–man if I only knew who to fuckin call, the Flaming Lips would’ve been here and back 3 times already… Ian you bastard–I’l bet it was like the best show ever (aside from swervie shows ;))… Let’s keep our fingers crossed about the Sloan show, Chizz. That 1% chance is all we need to have things fucked up on us… Cheers all–Happy Goddamned America day…
Date: Wed Jul 3 18:12:01 2002 Name: MarkJumblie City/State/Country: Boston, MA, USA Comment: Couple of things…First, where can I get a copy of the “Never Lose That Feeling” EP- I heard it awhile ago, it had an AMAZING B-Side, should have been on the album. Second, check out my band, The Jumblies. www.thejumblies.com Our Mp3’s: http://artists.mp3s.com/artists/280/the_jumblies.html

BTW- seb- the line6 modulation pedal is tippy-tops. 2 leslies, 2 tremolos, 2 flangers, a cwazy ring mod, and of course: a copy of the much sought after Ibanez FP-77 Flying Pan. It’s a phaser with a stereo pan- but here’s the thing: you set the phase sound to either left, right, or center channel. trippy as fuck. EST & fester: me-n-royboy’s band corsair are 99% sure to be on the bill for a free Sloan show here in buffalo on 8/4… it’s downtown & outside in the streets… I don’t know if you guys like them or what, but fuck it, corsair is playing, what else do you need? 🙂
Date: Wed Jul 3 15:47:45 2002 Name: Chris City/State/Country: England Comment: I just joined paypal so i could pay for the swervedriver stuff but it says i have to wait til the next credit card statement comes through to get the member number, is there any other way of finding this out any sooner???
Date: Wed Jul 3 11:35:43 2002 Name: Fester City/State/Country: Toronto Comment: Z-So far, all I’ve seen is United by Fate. I’ll let you know if I come across any ep’s and stuff. Boy of Roy – I’ve been meaning to get the new Shadow. Now fer sure. Feeling pretty jealous Ian. They didn’t come to Toronto for the Soft Bulletin, so I’m a little worried they’re going to pass us up again. Royboy, make a phone call and pull a string or two ;). Cheers!
Date: Wed Jul 3 09:58:24 2002 Name: Ian City/State/Country: Glasgow Comment: Howdy folks! Went to see the Flaming Lips in Edinburgh last night and it was one of the best things I’ve ever seen!! Dont think I’ve seen a band enjoy playing to an audience so much before. You all got to go if they’re down you neck of the woods. Fan bloody tastik!! and if you go look out for the Tellytubbies video edited along to ….shit, cant remember the name but its the one that goes “And so they were sad, they lifted up the sun…”. Funny as fuck!!!

You get the jangling ringing effect — sounds just like the recording. Check it out.

Date: Tue Jul 2 01:59:32 2002 Name: Zach City/State/Country: LA Comment: You ever have one of those moments when a song puts you in a trance, invoking all kinds of nostalgic feelings for good times gone by? Ride – Like a Daydream just did it. Ahhh, the beauty. Cheers all, Z.
Date: Mon Jul 1 16:46:41 2002 Name: royboy City/State/Country: boofaloo, noo yurk… Comment: Fester–man that new Flaming Lips is amazing. I too have a bootleg–no track listing or anything, but man-oh-man what an album. Have you noticed all the songs about death and dying between the Soft Bulletin and this one (I don’t even know the title!!!)? I just thought it was kind of weird. I like the “she’s a blackbelt in karate” song, and the “dun-nun-nun-dun-nun-nun-nun” (sorry) noisy instrumental with all the screaming… And BTW, our (Chizzy ‘s& mine) band, Corsair played a show with the Flashing Lights here in Buffalo, like 2 years ago. They were pretty cool. Zach–as far as new shit, I’ve been diggin the new DJ Shadow cd. It’s pretty smoove. Later all………….
