another leak named 'good for you'
fucking love this...
I had trouble with Yousendit soooo...
There is also updated "better quality" rips available now for the three aforementioned tracks.
And a higher quality version of sugar as well.
thanks for these
I read somewhere that these tunes were fake... some forumer somewhere on the webs admitted to making these.
i'll try to find a link later on
Here - this was posted on the 9:30 club forums where we were all talking about the upcoming Richmond show.
I saw this on another board in reference to the leaked tracks:
Feed The Collapse (from the MBV board) said:
"Yeah, okay so i admit I'm the one who made the tracks. As has been mentioned, the main song of Cowboy Song is Slim Whitman's "Indian Love Call", the looped feedback is Third Eye Foundation's "Sleep"."
here is a picture of the venue i'm seeing MBV at next thursday:
its an old theatre, 1500 capacity. probably the most beautiful venue i've ever been to.
holy monk - im excited.
320kbps Rarities and unreleased:
Good For you
Glider (Long version)
We Have all the Time in the World
Map Ref. 41°N 93°W
Edit: I'll upload a better version that also includes "Good for you" tonight when I get home.
only about 30 hours away...
I don't even know what to say.
That was... just wow. Amazing.
Words really can't describe You Made Me Realise live.
I'll be back with stories/pictures tomorrow.
Something tells me there is a lack of interest for this particular show on this board. So I'll skip the review and pictures because chances are, you guys already know what this is like.
But, with that being said, I do have some news for you fine folks that you would probably love to hear.
I hung out (yes, fucking hung out!) with Kevin and co. after the show. They're all very nice people - Bilinda is such a sweetheart. She had my heart melting the entire time. They all had a really good time at Coachella and were impressed with Paul's persistence on getting them to play.
Of course, I had to ask Kevin about new material. He said he's working on finishing up material from 1996 and that he wants to have it done by the end of the year. He also said there probably wont be any new material played at the festivals, and not to expect any more club/theater shows for a while. And lastly, prior to me mentioning it, he had no idea that some of these unreleased tracks had surfaced. "really? cowboy song is online now?". He said Cowboy Song was an unfinished demo from the Isnt Anything era.
So yeah, some updates on the gang from you guys.
here is the setlist from thurs night:
also, this made me laugh. these signs were posted throughout the restaurant next door to The National:
glad you got to hang out with them. the fb photos are great too
Rhythm is a dancer.
The opener for this show was Kurt Easley (of the Lilies). He's good, but not what I want to hear before My Bloody Valentine.
Here is how it happened:
After the show, me and a few friends were determined to meet them and thank them for coming to Richmond. We started at 11:15, but by midnight nothing was happening. My friends were tired, so they left and went home (poo on them!), but I didn't have anything else to do so I decided to stay. There were a few other people staying back too, so I wasn't alone.
1 AM rolls around. The band lounge is located on the 2nd floor of the venue, and we can see open windows there. Well all of a sudden, the opener, Kurt, sticks his head out of the window and see's us. He is drunk as hell and asks "heyyyyyy what's going on out here?" and we just tell him we're waiting for Kevin and everyone to come downstairs. I don't even remember what he says, but he walks away a few seconds later. Then a security guard comes over and looks out the window and see's us. I jokingly say "man tell them to hurry up!" and to my surprise, the guard says "ok i'll let them know". A few seconds later, he returns to the window, and Debbie is with him. We wave at Debbie and say hi, and she waves back.
She then looks around and says to us "alright come on up.". We were a bit stunned at what we just heard. We say "seriously?!?!" and she says "yeah come on up the stairs are right there". Everyone else is ahead of me. We go up the stairs inside and Debbie is there to meet us. She says "yeahh make yourself at home, have whatever you want, food, drinks, feel free to have some". We get into the main room that is filled with leather couches - the room to the left has a jacuzzi in it, the room the right has a pool table in it. Bilinda is in the main room sitting by herself with a huge smile on her face (as always). The opener, Kurt, is also around. He see's me, introduces himself to me, and says "heyy man you made it up here! let me go introduce you to Kevin!" He takes me into another room where Kevin is there talking to someone. He introduces me to Kevin (i'm trying to faint by this point in time) I thank Kevin for the show and everything. Read my post prior to this to see what we talked about. While I was talking to him, all of a sudden Colm walks into the room, only in his boxers, soaked and wet from the jacuzzi and introduces himself to me and everything. At one point, I was standing next to Kevin, and he offered me a hit on a blunt he was smoking!! I also talked to the new sound engineer for the gang, he said they reached 130 dbs on YMMR. Really nice guy.
We hung out upstairs with them for about an hour, and then they went back to the hotel. I went back to my apartment with the biggest smile on my face. What a night.
Here are some pictures:

very cool story. your friends must be killing themselves over leaving early.
Lucky, MBV is great, in small venues the sound really comes through, nice pics, I love Thorn live...
Smoking a blunt with Kevin is fucking great...

<3 you David.
You Made Me Realise was so intense its not even funny. Like, I saw them at Chella and have heard countless reviews and descriptions about it being done indoors, but still I was not prepared for it. The holocaust went on for 15 minutes, and it was probably one of quickest 15 minutes of my life. Everything inside was shaking. You could feel your hairs shaking.
When they turned on the lights, you could see chips of paint falling from the ceiling.
Holy poo on a stick.
