The show I saw of Oops! last summer kinda sucked (well, Wolf Eyes did.) I saw them a bit earlier at The Candle Factory in Providence (with Danse Asshole and Prurient) and they rocked the fuckin house, though.

Dread roolz. Slicer is less intense but also roolz.

Most revived thread ever?

2 months pass...
revive! cos i've been listening to dread & the drumm/dilloway cassette a lot recently, and i've noticed some new (?) tapes on slsk recently (droll vol 12, dead at hemlock sf 3-27-03 etc). so what else is good?

i stand by the wolf eyes "half dogs" and s/t cdrs - one mixed by dilloway, one by olson. and fucking MUGGER kicks your fucking ass.

"Dread" is fucking classic! even if only for "burn your house down". I haven't seen them live and it woun't happen any time soon, i'm depressed :(

toby,
i was at that hemlock show, very different from the other 4 shows i've seen. the lights were on, dilloway and olson were laughing almost the whole show. very good, i'll look for it on slsk. the dolphins next to me were eeping in delight!

j0hn dwy3r was next to me talking loudly the entire show about (!!!) himself (!!!) imagine that gee whiz.

Dread is a fucking classic album.

Jon Williams (ex machina), Tuesday, 10 June 2003 15:51 (11 years ago) Permalink

Wolf Eyes need to get they fool asses back down to Providence--we haven't seen 'em even remotely nearby since Oops! The Tour.

That said, Mugger rules, Dread rules, Slicer is pretty good, and they eat my fucking face live. Today, on my record shopping binge, I might pick up the split LP with Crack: We Are Rock if they still have it at Armageddon.

(is there a Faxed Head thread?)

Jon Williams (ex machina), Tuesday, 10 June 2003 16:02 (11 years ago) Permalink

Wolf Eyes needs to get they punk asses to the UK. Does anyone like their earlier stuff like the s/t cd on Bulb?

JW if you're searching for old hardcore threads to revive then look hard for the one where Aaron Dilloway himself comes and puts the smackdown on some ILM guy it's funny.

I didn't cast revive thread, this time.

Jon Williams (ex machina), Tuesday, 10 June 2003 16:07 (11 years ago) Permalink

search: "strangled in filth". runs a wide spectrum. might be my fav....

yes. though it really does seem like john olson joining made them the machine they are today.

the one where he criticizes someone for not listening to to live and shave in LA 'correctly'? that wasn't funny, it was sad.

your null fame (yournullfame), Tuesday, 10 June 2003 23:36 (11 years ago) Permalink

yeah, shit like that just reminds me of why i tried to get as far away from hardcore as possible when i left college

jess (dubplatestyle), Tuesday, 10 June 2003 23:42 (11 years ago) Permalink

shit like that just reminds me of you, jess.

(damn I'm mean today)

old dog, new tricks, etc.

i saw wolf eyes at a house party in k-town. they just made loud noise.

chaki (chaki), Wednesday, 11 June 2003 04:25 (11 years ago) Permalink

Has anybody heard the Mugger thing? I saw Aaron Dilloway last night, but didn't have any money to buy any records from him (he was fucking fantastic, btw).

hstencil, Sunday, 22 June 2003 17:01 (11 years ago) Permalink

i thought it was fucking hilarious

ssean, Sunday, 22 June 2003 17:04 (11 years ago) Permalink

the show or the record?

hstencil, Sunday, 22 June 2003 17:09 (11 years ago) Permalink

haha no the thread where aaron dilloway gets all cry-baby about to live and shave. 'mugger' is a monster not to be laughed at!

ssean, Sunday, 22 June 2003 17:14 (11 years ago) Permalink

uh, okay, I don't remember the thread, but that's cool. TLASILA rules too, btw.

hstencil, Sunday, 22 June 2003 17:17 (11 years ago) Permalink

when did mugger actually come out btw? i have it on bulb and it says 2003 but i'm not sure if that just refers to the reissue. it was def made before 'dread' right?

ssean, Sunday, 22 June 2003 17:19 (11 years ago) Permalink

the copy I saw last night said "recorded in March 2003."

hstencil, Sunday, 22 June 2003 17:27 (11 years ago) Permalink

haha yes the link to the aaron dilloway interjection to TLASILA thread thus:
to live & shave in L.A. what are they up to?
note my weakness and confusion. i was practically homeless roundabout then!
wolf eyes? dead hills ok. dread poo.

bob snoom, Sunday, 22 June 2003 17:46 (11 years ago) Permalink

YOU ARE COMPLETELY INSANE, MR. BOB SNOOM. Dread is great, just got finished listening to it.

hstencil, Sunday, 22 June 2003 17:47 (11 years ago) Permalink

oh dear...

bob snoom, Sunday, 22 June 2003 17:50 (11 years ago) Permalink

DUDE!< /mock indignation>

Seriously, though, I think Dread is great (as do a lot of others here, apparently). What about it do you not like?

hstencil, Sunday, 22 June 2003 17:54 (11 years ago) Permalink

well i just slung it on to see - it's not really bas per se it just takes ages of dicking around before the tunes DO anything. to me they are conjuring a "fischerspooner for daytime drinkers" vibe right now

bob snoom, Sunday, 22 June 2003 18:26 (11 years ago) Permalink

bas=bad

bob snoom, Sunday, 22 June 2003 18:27 (11 years ago) Permalink

'dead hills' is better

ssean, Sunday, 22 June 2003 18:27 (11 years ago) Permalink

Dread feels like an LP. Dead Hills feels like an EP.

Dead Hills and Black Dice - Lost Valley came out around the same time and would have made a good split.

Jon Williams (ex machina), Sunday, 22 June 2003 19:03 (11 years ago) Permalink

jon williams have you heard 'creature', black dice's new song yet? what do you think?

ssean, Sunday, 22 June 2003 19:07 (11 years ago) Permalink

no, I haven't where do I get this? What is it for?

Jon Williams (ex machina), Sunday, 22 June 2003 19:16 (11 years ago) Permalink

i think it's coming out on dfa backed with that eYe remix no? i got it off slsk

ssean, Sunday, 22 June 2003 19:24 (11 years ago) Permalink

The EyE mix didn't impress me

Jon Williams (ex machina), Sunday, 22 June 2003 19:27 (11 years ago) Permalink

I've realized my solo noise has fallen into Wolf Eyes cliche:

- Echoy, muddy vocals
- Slow plodding bass drum
- Hearing test blipping

Jon Williams (ex machina), Monday, 23 June 2003 12:02 (11 years ago) Permalink

jon, can i get a tape?

your null fame (yournullfame), Monday, 23 June 2003 12:06 (11 years ago) Permalink

I think my show on Thursday is going to be recorded, and probably released by IJustLiveHere (They also put out the Snug CDR which is ILXor Ian Johnson's noise stuff.)

Jon Williams (ex machina), Monday, 23 June 2003 12:18 (11 years ago) Permalink

oh, that's that japanese karaoke guy's label? rokk on!

your null fame (yournullfame), Monday, 23 June 2003 13:46 (11 years ago) Permalink

Did you see them? They're pretty good friends of mine (I drink all their beer).

Jon Williams (ex machina), Monday, 23 June 2003 13:59 (11 years ago) Permalink

no, we got the "afterlife experiment" cdr at my station. pretty fucked.

your null fame (yournullfame), Monday, 23 June 2003 14:58 (11 years ago) Permalink

haha dude, their whole name is Japanese Karaoke Afterlife Experiment. Their new stuff is a lot better than the CDR, there's vocals used on more stuff.

Jon Williams (ex machina), Monday, 23 June 2003 15:12 (11 years ago) Permalink

well, hell, man, the liner notes look like they were written by a crackhead. (though i did at first think it was JKAE not "AE" by JK, the guy who reviewed it assured everyone it was the latter...)

your null fame (yournullfame), Monday, 23 June 2003 15:14 (11 years ago) Permalink

Wolf Eyes absolutely killed at the Movement Festival (formerly the Detroit Electronic Music Festival) in Detroit Memorial Day weekend. They just played at a middle school for gifted children in a wealthy suburb or Detroit, but unfortunately I didn't make the show.

That is all.

Jeff Sumner (Jeff Sumner), Monday, 23 June 2003 15:18 (11 years ago) Permalink

I'd be interested to see this review. I haven't see the liner notes because there is at least four different versions of the CDR.

Jon Williams (ex machina), Monday, 23 June 2003 15:21 (11 years ago) Permalink

Jon,

Is anyone gonna release your and Ian's stuff?

gygax! (gygax!), Monday, 23 June 2003 15:24 (11 years ago) Permalink

yeah, these guys were pretty much one of the best things going until Aaron Dilloway left. Human Animal was the last thing he worked on and it's a total decline from there imo.

Yeah new one is dope in a Slicer way at points

anybody seen them recently? any good?

Crackle Box, Tuesday, 23 April 2013 10:50 (1 year ago) Permalink

7 months pass...

Saw them at Netil House last night...hahahahah they are SO SO SO CAMP live! I'd only ever seen Nate Young solo before and that was a really sombre, dark, slow set. This was him and John Olson wearing cut-off denim jackets and leather camps doing yr archetypal hype-macho stances for an hour. Louder than I thought was possible too. Their new guitarist dude is wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiild!

They were supported by Folkazoid (who would have been awesome if I was stoned and seventeen) and Porn (Thurston Moore and Bill Gould from Faith No More doing some kind of improv avant metal shit, was geat, Thurston spent the whole gig looking like he was about to blat every where. Ended with some crucial thrash shit) who were wicked.

Sad to not see a single ironic fist pump all night tho.

the Shearer of simulated snowsex etc. (Dwight Yorke), Tuesday, 26 November 2013 09:20 (1 year ago) Permalink

but seriously, that sounds like an awesome gig.

The Dale Crover Porn is a different Porn, isn't it?

tbh I've never been quite sure, and they are tricky to search for online! I thought they're all part of the same collective-type-thing though?

Yeah I suppose that's possible, I just always thought of the Dale Crover version first. This new line-up sounds great too.

regardless, Experiments in Feedback is great, particularly the final track which is 15min long and is a loop of a particularly nasty bit of feedback. Far out!
