Man, I got Coachella tickets because of a surprise reunion rumor.

Wow. I hope that's just a rumor. : ( My cousin saw him play a private houseboat show on Lake Shasta just last month.

well shit, Dan Crust and others have confirmed that Doug and his brother Rubius had been in the Yukon together (!). this past Monday, Rubius got homesick and headed back to the States in a tiny prop plane, but it crashed and killed everyone aboard. word got out that Doug was also a passenger, but he was actually safe and sound in the Yukon, and he hadn't even heard about the crash until Dan managed to contact him this morning.
I honestly thought Doug and Rubius were estranged, but I guess not. Rubius was the one who sold out stadiums in the late '90s with his unauthorized tribute band Dream Goat Barilla. and a few years ago he sold thousands of bootleg editions of the DC Tapes just months before they were due for an official release. good fucking riddance.
the only bad thing about this is that the Coachella thing will probably never happen :(

Comment spammers are ruthlessly capitalizing on the news about Doug Boatgorilla's adderall addiction, which is why it's been years since his last record. Hopefully he makes it through this rough patch. Kids, Doug is great musician, but just because you love his music doesn't mean you should follow his example.

^ just pre-ordered the double vinyl. Tho' I think they'd have to mess up the running order to split it across four sides.

Funny how "Renegade" is the shortest track on here. I have three different DougBG bootlegs (all from '02-'03) that end with a track called "Renegade." They're all about 40 minutes long and they're all chilled-out neo-hippie jams (Doug sarcastically introduces one version with, "This is our tribute to Phish"). Other than that, they may as well be three completely different songs, and I thought "Renegade" was just a made-up fan title. Maybe this 5-minute "Renegade" has nothing to do with what's on the boots.
Re: the double vinyl — apparently the first LP includes all 5 of these tracks. The second LP is a bonus disc of "sketches, interviews, dreamscapes, and field hollers". I wonder what that's about.
