OK, this is a long (winters) shot. But I'm running out of options... I'm trying to complete my collection of absolutely everything Barsuk has ever released. I have in excess of 600 items - all releases on all formats, posters, badges, promos, cards, soda, mugs, bags. licenced items from around the w...

Re: In Sickness And In Health

I rarely get ill, but I agree about being tired as universal across societies. Actually, I guess that is the definition of universal. Anyway, I am completely knackered. I seem to be working seven days a week and evenings. Tonight though I am off to see Jim Noir play, as long as I can stay awake duri...

Re: Get Out the Vote Rally & Free Concert on November 1

There seems to be a bit Seekers revival on at the moment. Ben and Zooey were covering their stuff at the Croc were they not?

Beats prog rock I guess?

Re: Article by John in the Seattle Weekly Reverb Residency

I am a superfan (ref: http://threeimaginarygirls.com/hearSAY3203DCFC.asp) but with a wider Barsuk, focus spreading the love (/stalking). I wouold define it as some one who picks up on the artits early, hopes at best to bask in reflective glory and stays around despite wider acclaim. Maybe a bot obse...

Comrades, you used to be twinned with the Soviet city of Ташкент (Tashkent, capitol of Uzbekistan).

Re: John to Play Three Shows This Summer at The Triple Door

Does anybody know what the thing on the floor next to the drums was? It was basically a piano that you played with your feet, but I want to know what it's actually called. And if it's actually called "foot piano", I'm going to be very disappointed. Bass pedals? Like these... http://tinyur...

Re: New Long Winters Single Available 9/21/2010

Mine hasn't come and ironically I'm off to Seattle in a couple of hours.

Liesbeth, do what I do normally and place a large coin (any currency works) on the needle and blast through the cracks.

Got mine. I know what you mean about the shipping. $10 is too steep.

Re: This is the kind of request Nada Surf gets all the time

I thought that was finny. I once asked Andrew Kenny at an American Analog Set gig to sign a copy of the "Home" split single with Ben Gibbard (because I am a dork). I had just got the card cover version of the CD in the post that morning, but Andrew hadn't seen it yet, so he had no idea wha...

Re: Strange Currency

I think it rather cruel to bump a thread which mentions European dates, so I get excited only to find it's talking about dates in 2003 on mainland Europe.

Wouldn't it be great if John got a girl band to open at The Croc who introduced themselves as The Newton Girls, just to see people's faces?

Re: Sasquatch 2010

It says in the Sasquatch blurb that "The Long Winters have begun work on their new album with producer John Goodmanson at Electro-Kitty studios in Seattle."

Is that the same as last year?

Great song. But during the video I kept thinking "Is John ever going to get that tooth sorted?"

Re: Menomena?

My 12 year old has added "I Say Fever" to his Facebook (he lied about his age) and our friends were round today and their 8 year Lyle freaked after watching it, in a good way, and forced his parents to watch it too.

Is there any way to get this to a larger audience?

Re: Menomena?

Can I second Ramona Falls? Best show I saw all year was Brent at The Garage in London (Dear Reader were the South Africans). Also, best video EVER for the "I Say Fever" video. and "Intuit" is one of the best albums this year too.
