Silkworm: C/D?

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed
This band gets heavy rotation from me about every 3 years, and I am currently in the thick of it. I know that a lot of the criticism levied against them takes the form of "they are merely parroting better performers of the same genre," or that they were "riding the Northwestern wave," but their music hooks me on a very visceral level. Example: the guitars on "Severance Pay" make me want to headbutt fine china and punch strangers (a bad thing..sure).

Is there any love on the internets for these somber duders?

I say Classic, my favorite moments being The Ram, White Lightning, Oh How We Laughed, Don't Look Back, too many others.

Classic. Especially Lifestyle, which remains one of my favorite records of the last few years.

I love Silkworm a whole bunch.

Not a very popular band, lots of my friends that you think would like them think they are boring.

But something about their obtuse T&G rock meets classic rock sound really gets me....Michael Dahlquist (RIP) was an AMAZING drummer...and Andy Cohen is one of the most underrated guitarists IMO, sort of hits a sweet spot between Crazy Horse Neil Young and Robert Quine.....

but yeah Lifestyle, Italian Platinum, Blueblood are all fav records of mine.

my band got to open for them the last time they played Mpls (I guess the last time ever now), but they were exceedingly nice dudes and played a great set even though I kept yelling out for "Treat the New Guy Right", which they obliged.

Midgett & Cohen have a new band called Bottomless Pit...have some stuff on Myspace, but it hasn't really grabbed me like SKWM.

This is very OTM! See solo on "I Hope U Don't Survive the Night" from Italian Platinum.

Classic. I'm actually astonished that there isn't a thread on these guys already. Smarter and naturally cooler than many of their indie rock peers. I think of Silkworm as in a category with Eleventh Dream Day. I have great memories of seeing them in the living room of a house in 1994 with 10 other people.

Not a basic classic/dud like this -- there's a longish thread on Dahlquist's horrible passing, though. Tragic puts it mildly, of course.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Wednesday, 4 October 2006 19:34 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I thought Firewater was their undisputed classic. Sure, the albums all ended up sounding pretty much the same and they certainly weren't the most ambituous band out there but who cares.

Besides the people you expect to love them who end up thinking they are boring, there are also a small number of Silkworm obsessives who think they are the best band in the world ever. I think I've met like three of them or so.

So, yeah, they're a classic.

Jacobo Rock (jacobo rock), Wednesday, 4 October 2006 19:46 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I think Silkworm lost a whole lot to their sound on record after Joel Phelps split and they went down to a trio. The first two are really good and Firewater would have been better at about 40 minutes. The last one I heard was Developer and I thought it was really dull. The only Joel Phelps solo record didn't do much for me either. I never heard anything after Developer, so I don't know what I might have missed, but In The West and Libertine are both pretty sharp records and I give them a spin every now and then.

The big problem I had with Silkworm is the same with many other mid-90s indie rock bands (Pavement/Sebadoh/The Grifters/etc. I'm looking at you), at some point many of them toned down the spazzy guitar interplay and start thinking they are singer/songwriters like Neil Young and they seem to lose what I liked about them in the first place.

I saw them twice, once being at gig my old band played with them after Firewater came out. They seemed like OK joes and were pretty good live. Andy Cohen is a guitar player that knows a few more chords than most and Michael Dalquist was definitely a unique and very talented drummer.

Earl Nash (earlnash), Wednesday, 4 October 2006 23:25 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I think Libertine is one of the best records of that 'genre' - the Phelps touch certainly gave them something special, which he's continued on his incredibly underrated solo albums. I still listen to Libertine every few months or so.

j fail (cenotaph), Thursday, 5 October 2006 11:29 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Earl, you should give Italian Platinum a listen. It doesn't sound much like the Silkworm you're used to, but it's real solid. (Even if it's "guilty" of that classic-rock switcheroo you discuss.)

The last Phelps album was a bit underwhelming (I'm thinking specifically of that one 583-minute track that WILL. NOT. END.), but his solo work is undisputably great. Esp. that covers EP he (self?) released w/ the busted radiator grill on the cover.

David R. (popshots75`), Thursday, 5 October 2006 12:12 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Yeah! Phelps' cover of 'Pink Frost' by the Chills was a nice surprise.

j fail (cenotaph), Thursday, 5 October 2006 13:59 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I really like the one JRL Phelps record I have...w/the Downer Trio? Can't remember the title...

but yep, SKWM post-Lifestyle is sort of a different beast than earlier stuff.

Classic. Not really a huge fan but the guitar solo on I Hope U Don't Survive is a favourite of mine. They should probably be better known.

strom (strom), Thursday, 5 October 2006 16:39 (twelve years ago) Permalink

not many people like silkworm, but the people that do REALLY like them.

the few times i'd seen them in mpls, the crowds would be decent, not great by any means, but there were always a few dudes you'd run into that, like, drove from canada or kansas just to see the show.

M@tt He1geson: Real Name, No Gimmicks (Matt Helgeson), Thursday, 5 October 2006 16:43 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Yeah, it's true. Silkworm obsessives are rare beasts. I knew one dude who drove six hours each way just to see them. That, I just don't get.

Jacobo Rock (jacobo rock), Thursday, 5 October 2006 16:47 (twelve years ago) Permalink

In terms of that "merely parroting better performers in the genre", I do love how on that one song on In the West they lift the guitar solo from Pavement's In the Mouth a Desert. Speaking of which, has anyone ever heard their Malkmus collaboration? The Crunk or Crust Brothers or whatever.

I'll go with In the West, an early one. I saw Silkworm open for Shellace back in '94 and it were just great.

I think they managed to make the transition a lot more smoothly than, say, Superchunk, though; they never totally abandoned the big distorted guitar solos and drunken singalong choruses.

I'll second all the "Firewater" recommendations, but the quieter parts of "Lifestyle" and "Italian Platinum," and especially the "You Are Dignified" EP (the acoustic "Prayer to God" cover being the highlight thereof) are pretty great in their own right. I never drove six hours to see them, but Jesus do I love Silkworm.

It was always there. In his pre-Seattle days Andy was as deep into Neil Young and Dylan as he was into Dinosaur Jr, Pere Ubu and Mission of Burma. Which is to say, DEEP.

but yeah honestly great stuff. the kadane bros. did a mix of bedhead, new year, and new stuff off an upcoming album. they are sorta doomed to be the really unpopular Low, but i think they are great.

STNNNG opened and played bunch of amazing shit, the best being "A Tremblin' Blues" which imagines that Physical Grafitti-era Led Zep wrote a 7 minute version of "Salad Days" by Minor Threat.

I like In the West but to me they transitioned from (sometimes literal) Pavement followers / noisy indie into more of their own thing (even if their "own thing" has heavy Television + Neil Young vibes). and the lyrics became a bigger deal -- Miracle Mile, Don't Make Plans This Friday, Slow Hands all some of my favorites by them. even if it is sort of a downer record

Tim and Andy do have pretty similar voices though I can usually figure out who's singing what. Michael is credited with "drums, vocals" on Lifestyle but I'm guessing he mainly chipped in on the gang back-up vocals like the chorus to "Treat the New Guy Right."

For me it's more just that I didn't notice it wasn't one person singing the entire time until I saw some footage. Now admittedly I haven't kept track of which song is whose but I can tell they're different. Yet despite that, I still maintain that their voices/delivery are weirdly very very similar.

It's mentioned upthread but I didn't know this:

While there’s no denying the looser, Crustier vibe on Lifestyle, the influence of Cohen’s other side gig – as a temporary replacement for injured Bush guitarist Nigel Pulsford – thankfully had no effect on the album’s recording. Though Silkworm themselves are still scratching their heads about the absurdity of it all, the circumstances surrounding Cohen’s brief tenure as an alterna-rock scab are not as bizarre as they first seemed – Bush’s 1996 release, Razorblade Suitcase, was produced by longtime 'Worm cohort Steve Albini, who turned on Gavin and Co. to Cohen’s raggedly glorious guitar mastery. And the fact that Cohen, like Pulsford, is, shall we say, follicularly challenged only sealed the deal.

“Andy actually looks like that guy,” Dahlquist agrees. “I don’t think any of their fans knew the difference, because all they do is just stare at Gavin. But I have seen no musical effect on Silkworm – the Bush thing, as I’m sure you’re aware, was considered very funny by all of us.

"But, oh man, was Andy corrupted – he was so into it, this remarkable lifestyle. I went and saw him in D.C. playing with Bush at RFK Stadium in front of 60,000 people, and I was corrupted myself. I couldn’t believe it. When Andy came back, he was like, 'Let’s sell out now!’”

from the label copy for the new sunn 0))) record:

Tim Midyett, a close friend of Greg and Stephen since the Seattle days of the early 90s (and member of Silkworm, Bottomless Pit and Mint Mile), joined in a foundational role tying earth to sound with wicked performances on aluminium neck bass and baritone guitars: instruments he helped pioneer playing back in the 90s (alongside Steve and Shellac of course). Dark matter is reality.

SKWM & Engine Kid (Greg's old band) were deep Seattle bros, I get the sense in no small part to be outsiders to the dominant Seattle scene at the time, but they toured together as well.

Tim told an amazing story once about a crowd not treating SKWM very well and Engine Kid deciding to avenge them by playing through all of their gear AND SKWM's at maximum volume in some tiny club and the end result being a sort of proto-Sunn on the loudness scale.
