Tuesday 18th November. ULU.
This'll mean their new album will be out around then, won't it?
Krist is still on bass right?
YES, excited. Really want to see them very badly.
and Novoselic joined them on bass last time they toured over here in 2006. Which I missed, because I didn't like good music then.
Ever live a life that's real
Full of zest, but no appeal
Ever want to cry so much
You want to die
Ever feel that you've been had
Had so much that you turn mad
Ever been depressed that
(to) those you turn to, you bring distress
Ever sit in tormenting silence
That turns so loud, you start to scream
Ever take control of a dream
And play all the parts and set all the scenes
Ever do nothing and gain nothing from it
Ever feel stupid and then know that you really are
Ever think you're smart and then find out you aren't
Ever play the fool and then find out that you're worse
Ever look at a flower and hate it
Ever see a couple kissing and get sickened by it
Ever wish the human race didn't exist
And then realize you're one too
Well, have you ... ever .. I have
One of my favourite Flipper facts is that Moby claims he once filled in for Will Shatter on American Hardcore. MOBY.
despite the rest of the band having no clue he was.
they didn't know who most of the rest of the lineup was most of the time
to play Thurston Moore's ATP I was really excited but in reality they were kinda disappointing. I guess with that kind of music I'd rather see Pissed Jeans for £6 than a bunch of old guys for £12.
I still enjoy their records a lot and I'm glad they getting money/recognition in later life.
Saw them support Melvins and a bit at ATP...bored the shit out of me both times. Album i heard wasn't amazing either...
is dead. They are crap these days.
but going to see this would be like going to see a reformed minutemen with.. well...Krist Novoselic on bass I guess. Not for me thanks.
Will they be that bad? :(
from a couple of years back, where they looked really good. But I'm anti-reformation of any band: I still refuse to go see the reformed Dinosaur Jr for instance.
In short: don't trust my opinion, I'm an idiot.
I'm breaking my weird self-inflicted rules by going to see Bluetip in a couple of weeks. Hey hum.
I need to see them again.
I really should see them.
Same lineup, same songs, same shy demeanor. Probably same shirts as well. And boy are they loud.
OK. If Bluetip don't let me down, I'll go see Dinosaur Jr. And that's final.
Mike Watt on Drums, Krist Novoselic on Bass.
Sting drafted in to sing Boon's songs.
That would be pretty sweet.
Bruce Loose was appararently so ill/fucked that night he had to leave the stage.
I'm sure she's not gonna be on tour with them or anything. :D
I used to talk to that girl on Last.fm. Her favourite bands were Brainbombs, Drunk With Guns and Flipper. Shame about her singing and shit.
