Pink Frost could melt a good section of under 25 year olds in this day and age, I'd reckon.

Dan Savage will back me up, I think.

Ozzy Goth Beatles (Bimble), Sunday, 1 February 2009 05:49 (ten years ago) Permalink

I mean Dan Selzer...shit. I used to get those names confused. I'm sorry.

Ozzy Goth Beatles (Bimble), Sunday, 1 February 2009 05:50 (ten years ago) Permalink

That's ok. I like Dan Savage.

The Chills were great. Brave Words is underrated.

Gosh thanks for forgiving me for that Dan. That was a problem for me for several years.

I paid too much for the lp a whiles ago, don't think I've listened to it yet, will now.

i think there was a 7 inch w/it too?

kaleidoscope world came with a bonus 45, is that the one you're thinking of?

Allegedly, Martin will have something new out soon-ish. I've heard that before, though. Sad about his career arc (or lack thereof) this decade. So much talent in that man.

Man, almost a year and nothing. Anyone have any scoop on what Martin is up to?

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Thursday, 3 June 2010 02:09 (eight years ago) Permalink

played a bunch o' gigs in australia a couple of weeks ago. still got it, though the mix was atrocious. i think they've got a new EP out too?

Help Im minger (electricsound), Thursday, 3 June 2010 02:11 (eight years ago) Permalink

Hmm haven't heard anything, and there's nothing on here: Chills Official Discography but I may be out of touch.

Bill E, Thursday, 3 June 2010 03:31 (eight years ago) Permalink

they definitely had something recent at the merch stand, but it might well have been that 'stand by' EP as i didn't look that closely

In off-topic but slightly related news, Die Die Die have signed to Flying Nun today.

was not expecting this! his voice sounds pretty good.

mizzell, Tuesday, 2 July 2013 15:31 (five years ago) Permalink

guitars chime pleasantly too, nothing earth shattering and no "Pink Frost", but then what is?

Neil S, Tuesday, 2 July 2013 15:33 (five years ago) Permalink

Pretty much sounds like the Chills! I wonder if this means he's ...cleaned up? Dealt with his depression?

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 2 July 2013 15:45 (five years ago) Permalink

I'm excited -- hoping for a tour!

john. a resident of chicago., Thursday, 4 July 2013 20:14 (five years ago) Permalink

Why in all the press for the new track are they saying it's the first new Chills music since 1996? The Stand By mini-LP came out in 2004. Does that not count as an official Chills release for some reason I've not heard about?

Aw, you got me excited for new material. A live album will be nice and all but I want me some fresh meat!

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Friday, 30 August 2013 02:26 (five years ago) Permalink

Yes. More new songs please. Its only been a million years.

Hinklepicker, Friday, 30 August 2013 06:17 (five years ago) Permalink

one year passes...

Just listened to "Sunburnt" and "Stand By" for the first time in years - both weaker than I remember. The overly busy and loud keyboards on "Sunburnt" hurt many of the songs, though it does have some killer cuts like "Come Home" and the title track. "Stand By" has full-band versions of some of the demos that were released on "Sketchbook" and I prefer the demos.

Still hoping for one helluva comeback from Martin! "Molten Gold" was good.

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Monday, 23 March 2015 13:29 (four years ago) Permalink

that recent BBC sessions disc is fantastic. hadn't heard those before...

tylerw, Monday, 23 March 2015 14:20 (four years ago) Permalink

They were part of the "Secret Box" set, have you heard that Tyler?

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Monday, 23 March 2015 14:47 (four years ago) Permalink

i haven't... aside from the first few albums, i'm not super knowledgable.

tylerw, Monday, 23 March 2015 14:51 (four years ago) Permalink

yikes, looking at the prices it goes for on discogs i should have hung onto that thing (and sold it now!)

no lime tangier, Monday, 23 March 2015 15:00 (four years ago) Permalink

i taped that last john peel session off the radio when it was broadcast originally. so good, and it's great to hear it again!

some little known live phillipps on this playing with mike dooley ex-enemy/toy love/hundred dollar band

Spoke to Martin Phillipps last year – interview here

Unsettled defender (ithappens), Tuesday, 24 March 2015 15:01 (four years ago) Permalink

so, reading that his habit corresponds to when his record collection started showing up in the used bins around town... i did wonder. wouldn't have guessed he was such a zappa fan to be honest.

no lime tangier, Tuesday, 24 March 2015 18:18 (four years ago) Permalink

How do you know it was his stuff?

One time I met him and showed him what I had just bought and he said, "I want that." He loved collecting music as much as making it.

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Tuesday, 24 March 2015 19:12 (four years ago) Permalink

he has the dastardly habit of writing his name on the cover/label, even down to how much he paid for them in the case of the copy of the byrd's younger than yesterday that i have :-/

and yeah, no question he's a massive music fan

no lime tangier, Tuesday, 24 March 2015 19:19 (four years ago) Permalink

oh man, that makes me sad

cgi bubka (NickB), Tuesday, 24 March 2015 19:22 (four years ago) Permalink

sorry for bring things down :-(
gonna feel a twinge of guilt whenever i listen to it now

no lime tangier, Tuesday, 24 March 2015 19:40 (four years ago) Permalink

i was a huge fan from the first time i heard "Pink Frost" on, saw em live several times in that '85-92ish period (I think at the Knitting Factory on Halloween night, maybe '88?). Sorry to hear about MP's spiral, hope he makes the best of it henceforth.

So this exists now. Apparently there is finally a new LP due soon.

Ah! There is. It's called Silver Bullets and it comes out at the end of October.

"Sunburnt" has some great tunes but overall it's spoiled by poor production.

Gerald McBoing-Boing, Friday, 1 March 2019 12:58 (two months ago) Permalink

Lovely set last night here in SF. New songs sounded great, old faves as wonderful as ever. My girlfriend thought "Submarine Bells" was the pinnacle of the show.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 7 March 2019 19:56 (two months ago) Permalink

appreciate everyone recommending the tour. show last night in PDX was great and what a huge sound.
entire band sounded amazing, especially on the violin tracks.

campreverb, Saturday, 9 March 2019 21:39 (two months ago) Permalink

St. Paul show was wonderful, one of my favorites by anyone ever honestly.
