Yeah, but is Kevin Shields playing with Seefeel? That would be news...

This would be my dream gig--if it were 1993. Still, if it materializes, it will be great, I'm sure.

I'm new here, (inebriated), and god knows share your taste, but why do I get the feeling music died for many of us in 1994?

when did seefeel get back together?

Faulty thinking on your part.

Music's fucking ALIVE and firing on ALL cylinders as far as I'm concerned, mate.

Yeah, I had no idea either. I'm not sure how successful the Quique reissue was commercially, but maybe the widespread critical acclaim for it along with a growing acknowledgement of their influence on electronic music since its release convinced them to play some more shows.

And Kevin Shields on guitar. That sounds fantastic, especially if I get a chance to see them, but part of me wants to be like "hey Kevin Shields, why don't you get back in the studio and finally finish that fucking MBV album before my balls explode"

someone else told me slowdive were touring which I think is completely untrue. is it possible everyone is just confusing this with the (very real) Swervedriver tour?

I would like it better if it were the band Kevin Shields playing with Seefeel: http://www.myspace.com/kkevinsshields

i don't want swervedriver to reunite. maybe they are mistakingly thinking of mat from revolver's new band the deep cut, they're horrid.

keythkeyth, Sunday, 30 March 2008 15:36 (nine years ago) Permalink

well swervedriver ARE reuiniting, they're playing NY and LA next month

Oh, make it stop. Make it all stop.

The past! It's over!

Im glad that Kev Shields is getting his stuff out there again, though that stuff he did with Thurston Moore wasn't too exciting (though might be $$$ collectors items). While I have a lot of nostalgia for MVB, I'd be fine leaving them in 93. Swervedriver wasn't so hot to begin with. Mark Clifford was doing some interesting stuff up through Disjecta, but then disappeared. Recently he did a split ep with someone else. So, yeah, Im glad those artists are out there doing their thing, but it's not such hallowed ground these days, imo.

The Mark Clifford collaboration record with Simon Kealoha that came out a couple of years back is very good.

seefeel in the studio, apparently.

in the meantime, the collaboration between mira calix and mark clifford is very lovely indeed.

Seefeel have done one or two new remixes in the past year. One for School of Seven Bells, can't remember the other.

There's a new EP and LP coming out on Warp "late summer". Just Sarah Peacock and Mark Clifford from the original lineup: http://www.warpedrealitymagazine.com/2010/04/the_return_of_seefeel.html

That blog post is 2 weeks old and the Primavera date it mentions them wanting to build more dates around is in 3 weeks. Anyone know of any more? Please post here if you find some out!

(I heard they were doing Primavera already but I couldn't go so I told myself "well, it wouldn't be the same 20 years later, better to imagine you saw them back then" etc etc, but I am encouraged by DJ Scotch Egg on bass, as his other band Drum Eyes gave probably the best live show I saw last year - may not actually mean anything, but hey)

Mildly on-topic: just out of curiosity, how do y'all rate Sneakster? I'm quite close with the vocalist from that particular project, and I think it's lovely but I don't gather that she's much of a fan. P.S. She's doing sketch and improv in Chicago now. Quite the career path.

Absolutely gutted: Seefeel are playing Brighton next Wednesday, and then London the day after - and I'm away in a remote cottage in Scotland!

Hope other people can enjoy it though.

It used to be called 'Sumo'. It's on Middle Street, next to the Media Centre.

Aha! Thanks for the heads-up btw, this would have just passed me by.

Yeah, I'd completely missed it until a friend handed me the flyer.

Wow, I really hated the first 30 sec of that song but by the end I'm completely loving it.

Was all set for this, but I had *KILLER TOOTHACHE* which totally incapacitated me (wisdom tooth extraction later today, oh joy)

Saw them play at the ICA. It was awesome, one of my favourite shows of the year so far. New stuff sounded just as good as the old stuff.

The new record grew on me quite a bit. Sad to hear their NYC show is cancelled; I was fully planning to go.

Clarke B., Wednesday, 15 June 2011 15:35 (five years ago) Permalink

whats the story behind the cancellation?

(not that i recall them having a TX show lined up anyway..)

i genuinely thought when i first joined that he was the admin (ilxor), Sunday, 19 June 2011 14:37 (five years ago) Permalink

official statement:

Seefeel and Warp are extremely saddened to announce the cancellation of Seefeel's US tour. Bureaucratic hoop-jumping beyond the band's control is unfortunately to blame, and the fans will have to suffer for it. Again, we're so very sorry to disappoint you all with this news and hopefully fans can bear with the band a while longer before the US tour (which they very much want to happen) can occur without any snags.
