is malkmus playing the jews gigs?
I also have a spare ticket to see them in London on Tuesday if anyone wants it? And you'd be stupid not to.
that by all accounts the replacement guitarist for Malkmus is more than capable. The juxtaposition between Malkus' & Berman's voices will be missed though. In other news I think Steve West is the Jews tour manager & Bob Nastanovich is involved in the road crew too, as well as playing drums on 'Trains across the Sea'.
I've waited years for this gig. YEARS I tells ya.
your in 4 a treat. the support "dave cloud" is a legend . i saw him last nite support archie bronson outfit, and he is crazy
know support for the Tuesday gig?
never heard of him
in the same position... :/
and then committing suicide during panic and the dicko
Always is around that time. Although, if you have to call...try calling at around 6:30-7:00 on monday as the time's will probably be the same for each night.
S'gonna be cosmic yeah.
Time Will Break The World?
I used to play that
in my acoustic guitar days
So many shows and so little time...
Thurston Moore and Silver Jews in one night...
London is spoiled for choice sometimes.
you're in for a treat. Personal favourite was Horseleg Swastikas but loved it all.
I'm going tonight!
David Cloud was fucking mad but very funny. He reminded me of Barry Humphries.
Wow. I can't write anything that will do justice to this. One of the best gigs I have ever been to. Really, I don't know; it was the shock of realising that David Berman's voice was as great live as it is on record, as well as the band being so tight, so great. I expected the guys behind Berman to be some kind of half arsed Pavement type band - i.e. not knowing what quite to play, or how to... It seems that going to Nashville really was a career defining moment for David.
Of course the lines he comes out with are amongst the best but I forgot how many tunes, pure melodies he had written. Tonight I lived in my other world where he played hit single after hit after hit.
He is such so romantic, the words that meant most were those directed to his wife, stood there on stage beside him playing bass. He touched me so many times, I don't mind stating that I was near to tears on a couple of occasions, the last track of the main set was really too much, with the history of the man in mind; "I saw the shadow on this world", such a simple line but so heartfelt.
The crowd were appreciative to the extent where Cassie had to come on stage at the end and tell people to go home.
My girlfriend is a little mad that I wasn't with her to watch her beloved Arsenal, but so be it. She understood when I got home.
very very good. I wasn't expecting the band to be so tight, they were perfect note for note. Berman didn't look particularly glad to be there though...
still isn't very comfortable on stage.
I understand that there is an irony, that I get a lot of pleasure from the words he has written because of the pain in his life. He said at one point, to the audience, that he loved them and hated them. I can well understand that when "we" hang on to those magical lines that must have painful memories he has rather confused views, especially as this was only his fifteenth gig, or something.
YAWN. Maybe i didn't get the whole effect....but they didn't make me want to leave the bar to catch a glimpse. They made me want to stick sharp things in my ears.
I could do it for you. For free and all.
he was brimming with confidence onstage. He hardly used his lyric sheets & spent alot of the time looking at people in the audience & other band members, as well as gesticulating on certain lines of the song. Fantastic band he's got assembled there as well. Those lovely chiming guitars made me swoon. His wife is a great bass player but a terrible singer! Awesome stuff. Bobby Bar Jr was great too, he can really holla....
fantastic gig... shame there was no "We Are Real" but I can't complain when a gig was as good as that.
*wears lovely if maybe a bit too small SJ t-shirt with glee today*
did i serve any of you?
I didn't go to the bar.
I would have ripped you off anyway. Not by choice.
were actually Malkmus' side project at first
so jews / pavement / malkmus
but American Water is the best album. It is the one with the most of Malkmus on also.
im presuming everyone was aware of these already but just in case!
