The latest Ryan Adams thread


Recommended Posts

Once again, another cultural reference goes over my head. Whooooosh.

 

That video segment represents your safe mild mannered skirt wearing god fearing duck and cover childhood of 1950s, as well as, the satanic death cult stylings of today's video game brain rotted latch key late night cartoon watching youth.

 

Thus, it is an example of the difference between the relative quietness of Easy Tiger verses the metal parody songs found on the artist who is named in the thread topic line we are currently posting in on the Wilco fansite known as Via Chicago.

 

Plus, it's fucking funny as hell.

 

You have blond hair, you could be a metal chick.

 

Up The Irons!

oooooooooh, thanks! :blush

 

 

 

:lol Nope, not a metal chick. Sorry. I was just your basic hippie chick who loved Flying Burrito Brothers, Doobie Brothers, and Brothers Johnson. But never metal. :hmm

 

 

Now onto other news: from paste.com

 

Well, if you live on the West Coast, get ready to make a date with Adams and his Cardinals. They've stayed busy in 2007 with Easy Tiger and the recently-released Follow The Lights EP, and aim to get an early jump on '08 with a run of 10 January dates. Give 'em a glance:

Eh, I didn't care much for the EP. But I have to say, the show he recently played here in DC was SO FREAKING UNBELIEVABLY BAD (and I'm a huge fanboy, I really like the Cardinals albums, live Bedhead, Easy Tiger, etc -- just trust me, it was a TERRIBLE show, could not have been more boring) ... Not sure if it's still just that bad taste in my mouth. I was glad to hear "if I am a stranger" just b/c it's a good song, though I agree the first cut was better.

 

I definitely didn't find "Down in a Hole" very inspired, but then again I haven't really ever been into any of his covers, I find them kinda flat somehow (idk why). From Wonderwall to his cover of Jesse Malin's amazing song Brooklyn, just never really have liked how he does them, they don't seem very inspired to me.

I almost feel embarrassed asking this, but does anybody have an mp3 of Aw Shit (Look Who Got a Website)? Because I've missed having that in my life/spitting Diet Coke out of my nose.

so Wolfhunter is ryan?

 

what's the update on the box set? wasn't it originally intended for late 2007?

 

Yep - def. him.

 

As for the box set - take it from the man himself

 

And as for the site itself - how awesome stuff must there be on there where even the guy the site's in honour of feels as though he needs to download from it?

I never thought Oasis would play Vancouver again. Last time they did, in the 90s, someone apparently threw a shoe at one of the brothers and they haven't been back since.
