    I got the Japanese Raise. I’m guessing you want Andalucia. Shoot me your email and I’ll send it to you (provided you have email space).

    Hey, all…I saw the Toronto set. How could I ask for more — got to stand directly in front of Adam and his pedals and watch his magic. And he was ON! Amazing. The band was pretty good too, although the drummer had trouble finding the beat a few times — that was more charming than anything, really, and they did a great job. Apparently this was their first full gig on the album. A highlight was Directors Cut of Your Life, the only swerve song he played.
    I also picked up the new album, of course — the very first buyer, too, which is funny b/c I was also the very first one to by Syd’s Eyes, when Adam came to Guelph, ON. I chatted with Adam a bit and he signed my copy and it was all in all a fabulous show. And I almost died the next day, having gotten back home about 3:30 with the work the next day. I suspect Adam Franklin is the only performer who I would do that for (short of Joe Strummer resurrection) — I was around at the gestation of Swervedriver, so I am not the youngest concert goer anymore. I have certainly been spoiled by Adam’s latter-day connection to Toronto — I hope he keeps it going!

    I was at both Toronto shows. The first was a tiny club I’ve never been too, about 70 people or so. Adam played 16 acoustic songs on a beat up guitar. I’ve seen him solo before in Hamilton and Lee’s in T.O. but not all acoustic. He is such a fabulous guitarist and also completely baffling — I cannot figure out these strange tunings. The absolute highlight was a his closing rendition of Duel – you’d think it would not work, but it was beautiful and mesmerizing (yes, heady words for one guy and an acoustic). He also played a Mazarin song, which I appreciated, and an X-ray Specs tune. Other highlights included Other Jesus, Satansville, and Sounds and Times.
    I had him autograph my Satansville UK promo (with Cars Converge).
    The Toronto Toshack show was similarly amazing but completely diffrent. I have the same response and sentiments as MezcalTed. I was lucky enough to be at the very front, 4 feet away or so, watching his guitar/pedal work (especially when he would do this behind the leg pedal move to disengage his wah – must play soccer). I did not recognize most songs and loved every one. The back-up was excellent. He once again blew me away when during the encore, the guy next to me said “can you do that unlisted song on Ejector Seat?”…No problem, as if on cue, he did a great rendition. Thought I had lost Swervedriver forever, but it really is alive in spirit with the new Toshack Highway. Cheers all. Jay.
