Re: Sweet Mother of God (New Site)

I like it, but the nerd in me was immediately drawn to the discography in eternal pursuit of completism.

Re: Electric Aphorisms

Truthfully, I have been both sides of this one. Telling strangers to "shut the fuck up!" at a Sufjan show and also being with a friend, who was 'tired and emotional', being asked to shut the fuck up during an Elbow gig in Manchester.

Re: Kerouac Tribute Tour

From one brief encounter John does seem like a decent human being, but in fact I have never met a single person from any Barsuk signed band that wasn't a thoroughly decent person. Do they have some sort of psychometric screening rather than a demo tape policy? I really wanted to get across for the G...

Re: Electric Aphorisms

"Fifty years ago, journalist John Roderick bought a small farmhouse in Japan for $14." He looks deceptively young.

Re: list of covers: help appreciated

John visited us at the pedrothelion.org to assist in his selection of the Bazan cover for the Packwood record. I forgot to suggest "The Longest Winter" which seems like a no brainer?

Packwood Project

From pedrothelion.org Someone asked Dave Bazan about the Packwood Project (where Dave is covering The Commander" at a show last night. Dave said it's a a very ambitious project and will be great when it finally comes out. He jokingly blamed John for delaying the album because he doesn't like an...

Re: SXSW 2009

A friend of mine told me that last time? They were driving to Austin through, like, the Hill Country? And they were really tired from driving? And so late at night, they picked up this hitchhiker? And he was kind of weird and had, like, a metal plate in his head and kept talking about Vietnam? Then...

Re: lyrical inspiration?

I recommend wearing nicotine patches at night for inspiration. You get the wildest dreams. Could be good if John's looking for a psychedelic slant to the new one.

Re: The Official Live at the Showbox DVD thread

As one of the few here never to have never managed to actually see the band (drove a couple of hundred miles once, but got stuck in traffic and missed John when he supported Keane in Wolverhampton), can I just say how fantastic this is? Just made me smile - and it was funny to here my 11 year old su...

Re: updated message board

I was involved in the Elliott Smith Boards war in 2001. It was pretty ugly. We at sweetadeline.net were invaded by a militant faction from elliottsmith.net. We found out just before the attack and drove them off. The irony was that when es.net folded they had to come to us with their tails between t...

Re: The Official Live at the Showbox DVD thread

I managed to get the lovely people at Barsuk to sneak it into my December order so Mrs Mc doesn't realise how over my monthly Barsuk limit I am. I wonder if Barsuk can beat Amazon to Europe? Watch this space. Actually, that would be pretty dull and pointless. I'll post when I have seen it to save ev...

I can get to Alicante for £118 return, but then I'd need to get the train the last 110 miles.

Don't think it's a goer.

I think PTDTB is definitely the best. It struck me straight away. Played it yesterday (and WIPTF) I think the best two songs has written are on WIPTF but PTDTB is the best overall album IMHO.
