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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Ian samples it on his CD. I'm not really happy with the lack of stereo separation on the stuff we recorded with a room mic. A lot of it is boring. I think we might do some stuff with my current solo setup + his current solo setup. Then I'll cut up the earlier tracks. I don't know.

Jon Williams (ex machina), Monday, 23 June 2003 15:31 (11 years ago) Permalink

omg people really will listen to anything

chaki (chaki), Monday, 23 June 2003 16:27 (11 years ago) Permalink

people go to your shows right?

gygax! (gygax!), Monday, 23 June 2003 16:29 (11 years ago) Permalink

ouch!

Julio Desouza (jdesouza), Monday, 23 June 2003 16:39 (11 years ago) Permalink

ouch? that aint shit.

chaki (chaki), Monday, 23 June 2003 16:53 (11 years ago) Permalink

hehe... anyone who claims the 805 is all right w/ me.

gygax! (gygax!), Monday, 23 June 2003 16:57 (11 years ago) Permalink

omg i just read a website thats the history of "nardcore" (oxnard punk) it was like 805 pride all over the place

chaki (chaki), Monday, 23 June 2003 17:03 (11 years ago) Permalink

link please!

does it mention scott radinsky (major league baseball pitcher and teenage screamer for scared straight?)

i only got my "nardcore" jones as a youngster from rodney bingenheimer bootleg tapes that i'd buy via mailorder...

aside from scared straight, ill repute's "clean cut american kid" was the most memorable of all those tracks.

[funny thing, dilloway would love this thread now]

the wolf eyes side project violent ramp is pretty much riding the vibe of some of the nardcore "local apocalypse" action that comes through.

when i lived in ventura, i surfed hollywood-by-the-sea and silver strand a few times and never felt that heavy local scene that was infamous in the 80s.

gygax! (gygax!), Monday, 23 June 2003 17:16 (11 years ago) Permalink

nice!

scott radinsky from simi valley! (like me) now in jock rock bands Pulley and Ten Foot Pole!

still tryin to find that link...

chaki (chaki), Monday, 23 June 2003 17:23 (11 years ago) Permalink

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

JACK SQUAT about these Charlie Nobodies (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Tuesday, 26 November 2013 15:53 (10 months ago) Permalink

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!
