And also Wooden Wand are touring. Also YAY!
And who are Wooden Wand?
good music yo
who have "Coming soon: Xiu Xiu, Wooden Wand" and some other people on their myspace. Suggesting they've booked them.
Wooden Wand are good.
Here's hoping for a date in the east...
Pineapple Folk, who say they're coming soon in Manchester tend to have stuff in really ace venues too. Klondyke Social Club :D:D:D:D
It's Wooden Wand with the Sky High Band that are touring to be precise, or at least are playing at the Lumi. Which is possibly even more exciting. I don't know where else he's playing though...
I'm looking forward to it muchly.
but they're coming.
so are the blow, akron/family, deerhoof and of montreal.
next year is going to be gooood.
yes it is :D
i love 2007.
pub type places.
do THEY liek ID too?
I cant get in ANYWHERE
Woe is me.
they don't ID that much.
i hope to god they come to Glasgow.
At MV & EE it looked like the kind of place they sell alcohol to 12 years olds
it was ace. But did it look like the kind of plce where they are strict on ID?
as they haven't put out anything really great for nearly 3 years now.
although the split with Grouper reminded me how brilliant her last 2 LPs were.
also, i find it strange that people can apparently listen to Wooden Wand and not realise he's just one person.
wooden wand AND the sky high band
wooden wand AND the omen bones band
that's before even a note has been played.
i don't see your point. i just think it's a bit arrogant to assume people will know things about obscure bands, however much you may be into them.
if you hear any of the records or look at the sleeves you can clearly tell he's a single musician. it's just like Iggy And The Stooges.
it's different if you've never heard any records, but when one professes to enjoy the music such a mistake is rather strange.
or is it a solo artist?
i'll say now - i know nothing about this wooden wand guy.
but isn't it possible that wooden wand would be the band and THE vanishing voice would be the solo artist?
the vanishing voice is one of his bands...
it's quite easy to tell when you hear the music, which is what i'm getting at.
i find it hard to accept that you can hear his records and not realise, especially seeing as his most widely available and heard record is with The Sky High Band.
how would you tell which bits were 'wooden wand' and which bits are 'the vanishing voice'?
also, although i don't know about yourself, i usually read something about a band before i listen to them so i know what they're like.
if you enjoy it enough to search out more, it's REALLY difficult to avoid the information.
i don't think it's fair to start being weird about people who aren't as geeky as me or you though.
but i'd say it's impossible to judge wooden wand's music, especially positively, and not find out somewhere along the way that he's a separate musician.
it really is like saying "Iggy Pop are ace!"
wooden wand = practically unknown.
such a huge difference.
you can't say something is good until you've heard it, right? so saying 'wooden wand are good' implies that one has heard enough to make a positive judgement and yet cannot tell that it's one person with a backing band.
so if we were in 1970, this is like saying "iggy pop are good"
damn them and their racist lack of uk tours
I hope this is true. The first few months of 2007 are looking unbelievable for gigs :D
in San Francisco last month and they were really good. Looking forward to the Glasgow gig
The Wooden Wand show has been cancelled at the Luminaire. Anyone know why?
this has ruined my day.
i'm going to eat ice cream now.
at least it might happen in July apparently.
Yeah, that was my reaction when I found out a few mins ago
