european dates?

The concert venue Paradiso in Amsterdam lists the following concert on its website: 21 august: South San Gabriel + Long Winters. Then if you click on it, it says nothing about The Long Winters in the accompanying text. It just mentions South San Gabriel "and others", and then explains who SSG are - ...

I try to be quiet about that, since that 'blaasinstrumentenhuiskamerpoppareltje' incident. Not that I can be blamed for that, but it's guilt by association.

you are what you listen to

as if we didn't know this already, study has now shown that we are what we listen to:

it will take more research, of course, to explain why this is so!
in the meantime, let's do a little poll

creep

I used to think it was "I'm a creep I am a widow". Then I found out it was "weirdo". Now I think they suck. Sorry to take 6 weeks to respond to this particular bit of info, but what the f? I always thought it was "I'm a creep, I'm a riddle" and thought that was a really good line. Thoroughly disapp...

But what I really covet is an Omnichord. (I know, different thing entirely, but since we're on the topic of fetishy music makers starting with "O"...) I have no idea what an Omnichord is [pray tell, what is an Omnicord, Goldie?] and my fave doesn't start with an O either, but I'll say my bit for Ca...

Re: HEY LOOK AT ME! I'M THE PRESIDENT! WHEE!

In fact, I'm going to listen to that now and see if I can't get some sleep. how can you ever expect to fall asleep while playing Harm? it just makes you want to get up and dance madly...

Saw them in Amsterdam (Utrecht was a 1200 venue, which went on sale for fanclub first, way sold out before I caught on). Brilliant setlist indeed. R.E.M. do this thing on their website where you can request songs by e-mail, and they played both my requests (Fall On Me AND Cuyahoga - the latter I did...

I saw R.E.M. last weekend, and was lucky enough to catch them in a relatively small (5.000) venue because it was the start of the tour. Then I remember see...

Re: Anyone know dutch by any chance...?

Schrijf John Roderick maar in uw boekje van veelbelovende songwriters! Lange winters kunnen ook heel mooi, zonnig en warm zijn. Hij kickt het album af met Blue Diamonds, een blaasinstrumentenhuiskamerpoppareltje van jewelste. Alsof het Excelsiorlabel is doorgedrongen tot ergens daar in de VS. Het g...

epic is the word

blanket hog is definitely one of my faves of the album. an earlier post mentioned the word epic, that would describe it well. as for the ultimate sequence, I'll go for the opposite: usually I like the first songs of an album best (at first anyway), but with this album the perfect sequence of song 1 ...

Europe

Hey, good to see there will be a Long Winters website soon. Makes it easier to keep up with what's happening, since I live in Europe. Which makes me ask the following question: are The Long Winters likely to come to Europe for gigs? And if there aren't any real plans, is this in the category "yes pl...
