Date: Tue Dec 31 13:13:14 2002 Name: Erik City/State/Country: Raleigh Comment: Happy New Year Swervies!! Especially to you Oz kids. As I anxiously await to get out of work to begin celebrating, everyone in Australia is nursing hangovers. 2003 is gonna be good… -E
Date: Tue Dec 31 05:35:06 2002 Name: Dave City/State/Country: St.Helens Comment: Oh yeah, I forgot to mention… Swervedriver Guitar Tablature Archive has been up and running for a year… It had a month’s down time in Feb but who’s counting. Thanks for all the support and I hope everyone has a great time for New Year.
Date: Tue Dec 31 04:39:56 2002 Name: Dave City/State/Country: St.Helens Comment: Oh Dear. I’ve got a totally different story. I have showed Swervedriver to 4 People in high school….the response i got was “eeehhh they are a bit fuzzed out and too mellow for me” which doesnt suprise me because at the time they where all listening to Slipknot. When I moved to college I showed it to another 2 people, one liked marilyn manson and the other liked Oasis and the Stone Roses. I was hoping for a better response but all I got from them was “they are a bit tame for me” and that was after they listened to the majority of the Mezcalhead album! When I got to University, I introduced it to a few more people. One is a metal head and he didnt like them, one is a punk rocker and he didnt like them, and one was a indie-rocker and he likes them but he says he wants to hear more stuff before he can pass judgement. I usually let people listen to Duel, Harry and Maggie, Son of Mustang Ford or The Other Jesus. My girlfriend thinks they are alright, but she doesnt listen to them or shows much enthusiasm for them either. My Father thinks the same as my girlfriend but he absolutley loves Scrawl and Scream. and my dad is an old-school rock n roller. Anyway I guess I will have to let my University Mate borrow some Swervedriver albums. Its nice to hear you lot have good stories to tell. “at least you’ll always have a good tale to tell” Cya all later!
Date: Mon Dec 30 20:31:38 2002 Name: Zach City/State/Country: LA Comment: Hey Jez D., I totally agree with you. I have dropped the SWD bomb on countless friends, girlfriends, etc., and not a one didn’t like. D, I’ll be in Vegas for New Years. How ’bout you?
Date: Mon Dec 30 19:50:12 2002 Name: Jez Dennis City/State/Country: Sheffield/ England Comment: I cant believe how big a fanbase swervedriver have in America. The good thing about swervedriver is that they are one of those gems that you can keep to yourself, and when you show someone their music, people are blown away.
Date: Mon Dec 30 12:53:57 2002 Name: d City/State/Country: ny Comment: anyone going to see interpol? or anything else that might seem interesting coming up in the new york area? what are you all doing for new year’s?
Date: Mon Dec 30 04:36:50 2002 Name: Dave City/State/Country: St.Helens Comment: Yeah we all knew that. If you are directing that comment towards swervedriver I wouldnt hold your breath hoping for a response. And im sure the guys know that the song is on the game. Its when I first heard swervedriver! Last Train to Satansville is also on the game too.

Date: Thu Dec 26 14:38:32 2002 Name: d City/State/Country: ny Comment: I found a couple new live or rare mp3s on soulseek (rather appropriately named, and which btw does not contain spyware right now) I put them up on the live site http://www.geocities.com/swdlive. Someone is sending a bunch more rare stuff as well, should arrive soon. When we get it, I’ll post it. np: frank black – places named after numbers.
Date: Thu Dec 26 12:37:15 2002 Name: Jase City/State/Country: NYC for the holidays Comment: The party on Saturday was great. Adam played a solo set which inluded I Am Superman and Electric 77 and then he joined LBE on stage for Never Lose That Feeling, How Does It Feel To Look Like Candy, Bring Me The Head Of The Fortune Teller, Scrawl & Scream and Rave Down and the place went crazy. Merry Xmas and Happy New Year y’all!
Date: Wed Dec 25 20:16:03 2002 Name: Sundog City/State/Country: Chi-Town Comment: Does anyone who went to the party have enough memory remaining to post the set list? 😉 Just curious. It sounds like all of you had a great time there. At the very least, we have the Sianspheric/TH split to look forward too. Five songs each, I think I am going to really like it 🙂 Dream Well Swervies!

It is so unfortunate that we keep losing our rock heroes at to young an age. What a bummer! On a different note, it was nice meeting you at Adam’s show the other night. Cheers to you and all here. Merry Christmas!

Date: Sun Dec 22 13:47:32 2002 Name: d City/State/Country: ny Comment: hey elvis how was the party/lbe/adam/dc guy show? i didn’t go even though i had a coveted invite (which i think you just get for being on the list because i know i don’t know anyone. so if you want to get invited next year folks get on their list and get the magazine, it’s great, i love it.) I was sick last week (nearly pneumonia) went out thursday and friday anyway (against doctor’s orders – :), but i had to see arthur lee, by saturday i was done…besides i have xmas shopping to do among a few other hundred things to catch up on after a very busy semester at university. speaking of arthur lee does anyone else like mike randle and rusty squeezebox? I liked them so much as “LOVE” on friday that i started to download clips of their own stuff. i quite like what i heard of baby lemonade. can anyone recommend a particular CD? i might pick up a copy of 68% imagination with the arthur lee cover on it.
Date: Sun Dec 22 12:36:56 2002 Name: Fester City/State/Country: Toronto Comment: Listening to the radio the other night and they had the guy from sonic onyon chatting things up. Anyway, he talked of the Sian/toshak project to come out for sure in the new year, and went on to mention Adam Franklin of the swervies, etc. Quick little bite, but a treat to hear the boys being spoke about somewhere outside this forum. Anyway, made a swervie conversion. Someone I work with whose a muscian. Big Black Crows fan finding himself amazed by swerve’s skill and sound. The landscape is so flat and bland right now…ripe for a band like swervie…In case I don’t have a chance before Christmas, just like to wish everyone a happy holidays and nothing but the best of luck for the new year. Cheers to all the swerves major and swerves minor, and my hope that the englishman in new york is just on reconnaissance instead of settling in.;) Be well y’all.

I would like to thank adam for the best intro to soundgardens 1992 appearance at detroit. yes its alot too late but believe me it was a concert that I will not forget.

Date: Sat Dec 21 19:38:05 2002 Name: d City/State/Country: warsaw – pierogis like no others Comment: you set the scene…I saw arthur lee last night. i highly recommend it if he is coming your way to go to the show. that was the best show i’ve seen all year (all due respect to the obvious). the band was so good even though obviously they weren’t the original members of LOVE, but they were so into what they were doing. lenny kaye was the dj and patti smith was there not that should matter i just sat looking at her long gray hair which she has started to brush it seems. mike randall was on guitar and he was like blowing the audience away he was so good. the sounds were perfect. Arthur’s charisma can fill an entire hall. He said he has a new album coming out, I can’t wait.
Date: Fri Dec 20 20:10:51 2002 Name: Kevin email@example.com City/State/Country: Upstate NY Comment: I walk in to South Paw, go to the bar for a beer and who is sitting rite there….. Adam Franklin ! My buddy Mike knows Adam and introduced me. My jaw dropped,I realy didn’t know what to say ( what do you say to your fave musician of 10 years !!!) Anyway, greatest guy you would ever want to meet, and killer show. And yes Elvis those 2 girls would not shut up through Adams set ( but they were quiet for Jim Bianco ?! Go figure)
Date: Fri Dec 20 19:51:01 2002 Name: Erik City/State/Country: Raleigh Comment: Thanks Steve!! Regardless of not being able to see Adam, it was a kick ass birthday. After consuming god knows how much whiskey, I managed to embarass the hell out of myself by singing “Tracks of my Tears” at Kings’ karaoke X-mas party. Not quite the same as the Kids are All Right ritual, but close enough. Miss you, brother. Have a good Christmas out there in San Fran. We’ll call you soon. -E

A lot of songs from the Mercury show plus a host of new stuff (at least new to me). Except for the few Brooklyn yupsters who wouldn’t stop yappin’ in the back, the venue was nice too.

Date: Thu Dec 19 09:24:46 2002 Name: Elvis City/State/Country: Jersey Comment: I personally don’t like the idea of box sets – they kind of fall under the whole greatest hits, let’s suck our own dicks, ego trip stuff. While all of the B-sides are a bitch to obtain (sans the use of Mp3s), doesn’t that make it all the more fun? See y’all there tonight.
Date: Wed Dec 18 21:57:12 2002 Name: Erik City/State/Country: Raleigh, NC. Comment: Ahhhhh, it’s a comforting thought to know that Adam will be performing the same night as my birthday. If only I could be up in NYC for it. Have a good time, those of you who do go. Kikster, good to see you on here again, baby. Hope all is well. -E

Date: Wed Dec 18 18:39:42 2002 Name: Dan’l City/State/Country: Chicago Comment: Ah… but if Swervedriver had some decent artist support over the years, who knows what the draw would be like today. I think the rekkid compnies underestimated their audience, and did nothing to expand it. Thank You. And now for today’s SWD box set idea: the box itself would be a flat black fabric material, with the only icon being the stylized silver ‘S’ in the upper right corner of the front cover of ESR…
Date: Wed Dec 18 12:28:13 2002 Name: Elvis City/State/Country: Jersey Comment: d – yeah thursday. i got tickets because i have a few friends in brooklyn, but i think you’ll be alright at the door. obviously we’re all in the know that adam franklin rocks the casbah, but (no offense to us) he’s not THAT big a drawing power. just like mercury is the manhattan maxwells, southpaw is the brooklyn maxwells – not that big at all. really cool though.
Date: Wed Dec 18 12:01:15 2002 Name: rob City/State/Country: Comment: you know, it’s totally fine to have a private party….especially when there is space limitations….i’m just stoked at least something is still going on and that the whole swd thing is not totally dead….maybe something really cool will become of this first “private” jam….rock on brothers

Date: Tue Dec 17 15:35:34 2002 Name: d City/State/Country: ny Comment: yeah i’ll have to see what happens. when i first (didn’t) read that mail i just saw party i had no idea there were bands cause i only read the first few lines, and it seemed like a good idea, oh well we’ll see how it shakes out, whatever. so, see you on thursday? i might not be able to get there till 9:30 – 10 and i am worried i won’t get a ticket. do you know if southpaw gets crowded on a thursday? i’ve never been there. i’ve been meaning to check it out for a while. i hear it’s a really good place to see a band.
Date: Tue Dec 17 12:09:28 2002 Name: Elvis City/State/Country: Jersey Comment: hey d!!! apparently those who are going with friends still aren’t allowed to go. they will be IDing at the door and will only accept those on the list – so even if your friend is on the list, you are still busted from the shindig. this affects me as well. we already asked about inviting guests and Big Takeover gave an emphatic NO. this sucks.

Date: Mon Dec 16 19:08:14 2002 Name: Dan’l City/State/Country: Chicago Comment: Yikes! Why didn’t someone think of this before! Offically licensed Swervedriver box set! All four albums and all the B-sides you could cram into one slick, SWD-endorsed package. If indeed there are no tours to come, it would be something to wrap up their career up with (something for the mantlepiece?). If there *are* plans for a comeback/5th album, what better way to draw folks into the store to pick up a new SWD release? Oh… waitaminnit. You kids with your ripping and burning don’t go to the store anymore…
Date: Mon Dec 16 18:08:11 2002 Name: Santa City/State/Country: North Pole Comment: You folks got a better chance of seeing me and eight tiny reindeers than you do seeing SWD tour again. Merry Friggin Xmas!
Date: Mon Dec 16 17:46:29 2002 Name: Zach City/State/Country: L.A. Comment: Has anyone heard this yet? ***VOYAGER ONE: Monster Zero Face it, kid. That new My Bloody Valentine record is never coming out. Seattle’s Voyager One, however, should cure any itch to play air-bass into some speakers, scavenge for melodies under a wall of guitars or, especially, gaze at one’s shoes. Sure, it sounds a little like MBV (c’mon, the band is on Loveless Records fer chrissakes!), but Voyager One makes the dream-pop sound its own with orchestral tweaks and a much, much gentler touch. “Wires” rides the same Neu!-ish pulse that drove Radiohead’s “National Anthem” – burying a restless melody under a wash of ambience until reaching back into its bag of tricks (a.k.a. “pedals”) and pulling out a bone-chilling lightning bolt of Spacemen 3-esque intergalactic noise. The trance-inducing “Snow Angel Summer” is pure space-out space-rock and “Ready.Reset.” is lushly Lush. Voyager One even traces its British roots (as much as five guys from Seattle can) with a rumbling, subdued, ‘tronics-heavy cover of Echo And The Bunnymen’s “Bedbugs And Ballyhoo.” Let the gazing begin. *** – review from CMJ.com.

Date: Sun Dec 15 22:09:05 2002 Name: Sundog City/State/Country: Chi-Town Comment: Hear? How about here. I really need a preview key…lol.
Date: Sun Dec 15 22:07:28 2002 Name: Sundog City/State/Country: Chi-Town Comment: You know, during the 90’s I always liked the Smashing Pumpkins and Swervedriver, but felt that in terms of recognition, Swervedriver got the shaft. The reason I bring this up, is the new song being played on the radio by Zwan, Billy Corgan’s new band, entitled “Honestly”. The funny thing is, if you listen to it, the best way to describe it is, imagine if the Smashing Pumpkins wanted to be Swervedriver. I guess in terms of radio airplay, Swervedriver was too far ahead of the curve, but we always knew that. I hope all of you going to the party have a great time. I can’t wait to read your reviews of the appropriately electrified Swervie material all of the partiers will be fortunate enough to experience. Dream Well Swervies and if I don’t post hear until next year, I hope all of you have a happy and safe holiday season. Cheers!
Date: Sun Dec 15 08:18:01 2002 Name: Dave City/State/Country: St.Helens Comment: Well whoever is going to the party I hope they all enjoy it and that it goes well. Just a passing comment, has anyone noticed that the intro to The Other Jesus and Go Let It Out by Oasis are very similar indeed?

Date: Sat Dec 14 21:25:45 2002 Name: Webmaster–Last Burning Embers City/State/Country: NY, NY Comment: Please note that the BIG TAKEOVER/ Last Burning Embers party that Adam Franklin is playing mentioned on this bulletin board is not open to the public and is invitation-only. You must be on the mailing list for Last Burning Embers and BIG TAKEOVER, and there will be a list at the door. Those who do show up without an invitation will not be admitted. We regret that we cannot accommodate any other guests, but the venue is very small.
Date: Sat Dec 14 15:29:13 2002 Name: party crasher City/State/Country: NY Comment: I got one, fellas….I wouldn’t recommend jusitfying your invites to this said party – there’s a distinct chance that btfan’s head will swell even larger…..
Date: Sat Dec 14 11:14:20 2002 Name: d City/State/Country: ny Comment: yeah i got an invite from someone as well. i wasn’t sure how it was going to work out because i am going with a friend who i invited. i just supposed that others were doing that. if we can’t get in we have somewhere else to go.

Date: Fri Dec 13 08:28:59 2002 Name: btfan City/State/Country: Manhattan Comment: The party with Adam and Last Burning Embers is not open to the public, so I wouldn’t recommend just turning up–there’s a distinct chance that you’ll be turned away.

I don’t mind high pitched vocals but nope, that fella annoys me. On a lighter note, hairy have you got any swervie songs tabbed / figured out that you might be able to send me over christmas? I’ve been requested to do Kill the Superheroes and Year of the Girl. Im struggling with both! Anyway cya all later
Date: Mon Dec 9 04:10:54 2002 Name: Hairyhaw City/State/Country: glasgow Comment: Haven are ok, Danno. To be honest I do find his voice a bit over-dramatic but nothing on the scale of the guy from Starsailor. Apologies in advance if I’ve offended any Starsailor fans but I just CANNOT take his voice! Anyway, yeah Haven album wasn’t bad actually…

Anyway, living in Newcastle again after the big move from Perth earlier this year. I;ve got to say it: I am still homesick for sun setting over the ocean, me and my board…….and I really miss the fab Perth music scene. oh well. i will get there again someday, probably for Foo Fighters’ concert on 1 Feb 03 actually, since the Sydney concert sold out in minutes [sigh] c y’all soon

I picked it up after hearing a good chunk of it at Tower Records. It is quite good, and my only way to describe it is, dreamy, w/ a hint lush. Not Lush the band tho. Just wondering. Cheers, Danno

Date: Fri Dec 6 13:38:37 2002 Name: d City/State/Country: ny Comment: http://www.geocities.com/swdlive is the site. If it works out more may be on the way. Taping a show is a possibility but Adam has to say that it’s ok to do that.
Date: Fri Dec 6 13:02:07 2002 Name: Elvis City/State/Country: Jersey Comment: What happened to the Rare and Live geocities site?

Date: Thu Dec 5 17:02:32 2002 Name: Mike City/State/Country: Boston, Ma. Comment: Let me get this straight. Adam is going to play SWD tunes with a backup band, electricity and all? Volume and all? Adam if this is true you must consider a tour if it goes well and I know it will.
Date: Thu Dec 5 15:22:56 2002 Name: d City/State/Country: ny Comment: wow! i was already planning to go to that “shindig” but now all the better.
Date: Thu Dec 5 08:59:49 2002 Name: Elvis City/State/Country: Jersey Comment: I have a posse already going to Southpaw for the Brooklyn show. Since only a few showed up for the Mercury show I am wondering about the turn-out. The guy who books Southpaw is the same guy who books Maxwell’s in Hoboken so he should know what he’s doing.

Date: Wed Dec 4 20:44:43 2002 Name: steven City/State/Country: whirlawaymusic.com Comment: i just broke out RAISE for the first time in a while because someone told me they thought that record sounded “too dated”. what crap. when RAVE DOWN came on i think the speakers on my imac blew out. i haven’t been a fan of “heavy” music since i was a kid listening to JFA or black flag, but swervedriver will have a place in my player. hopefully when i check back here in a while i’ll see some news about a new record or tour.

Date: Wed Dec 4 07:57:36 2002 Name: guy h City/State/Country: london Comment: matt – i went to see adam do an acoustic show in london in nov. click on the “november” archive at the bottom of this page and go to nov 8th… or was that oct 8th?? i dunno. but it was very good. Re : liams teeth… the daily mail in true overhyped tabloid frenzy said that liam etc fell onto a table that had a load of gangsters sitting around it, discussing organised crime. possibly not the best kind of people to pick a fight with, that is assuming the daily mail was right. and lets face it, they always are…..
