RE: Susan... | from adamMar 20 2002 - 21:45

RE: Susan... | from fulvioMar 20 2002 - 20:20

Who makes them Jesus Crispies? Post? Are them things good? Geez, I gotta start eating breakfast again.

RE: Susan... | from susan331Mar 20 2002 - 15:59

RE: Susan... | from susan331Mar 20 2002 - 14:08

Hey, it's kinda neat having my own thread! How special am I?!
*jamming thumbs in ears, waggling fingers and blowing Jeff raspberries*

RE: Susan... | from adamMar 20 2002 - 06:27

blah blah blah.

RE: Susan... | from JKMar 20 2002 - 00:56

Luna was boring in 93 and from my personal opinion of thier previous shows, im sure they are well on thier way to the lame hall-o-shame soon . Though I couldnt be quitepositive about my previous statement, ive heard enough of thier material in the past to reckognize that they are deeply lacking in musical writing skills, and simply dabble in powerchords that theyve so long relied on in the past to impress thier friends in college.

RE: Susan... | from susan331Mar 19 2002 - 16:07

No shit-- they're a total Coldplay/Travis knockoff, which is a mark against them to begin with. The only reason I saw 'em was because they were opening for Neil Finn at the Austin Music Hall and we wanted to get a good spot. Crap, pure crap. If you want good quality Britpop try Clinic or the Super Furries, both of whom could annihilate Starsailor in no time flat. Oi!

And yes, I found Luna boring. I can understand why people like them and made a valiant effort to try to get into them a year or two ago but they just never stuck with me. I like a couple of their songs, like "Tigerlily Girl," but everything else they've done, especially their new one, Romantica, has struck me as pretty flaccid.

RE: Susan... | from eraserheadMar 19 2002 - 15:53

Star sailor, could the guy try any harder to sound like Richard Ashcroft??

RE: Susan... | from adamMar 19 2002 - 13:04

StarSailor is fucking garbage.

RE: Susan... | from edMar 19 2002 - 05:35

Luna..boring.I thought they were pretty tight.

RE: Susan... | from susan331Mar 19 2002 - 00:30

Didn't see any of 'em. Did see Luna (boring), Stratford 4 (cool), the Von Bondies (kickass), Holly Golightly (yawn), the Greenhornes (hot), the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (crap), the Sunshine Fix (rawk!) the Eels (shite), Departure Lounge (yeah!), the Crack Pipes (no!), Mary Lou Lord (twice, on the street), Neil Finn (twice, but not on the street), the Shins (yay!), Starsailor (pointless), My Morning Jacket (awesome), Kelly Hogan (amazing), the Yayhoos (stompin'), Tiger Saw (unmemorable), 27 (ditto), the Meat Purveyors (great), Magnapop (fun), Flowchart (trippy), Rock 4 (interesting) and the tail end of Clinic (riveting).

RE: Susan... | from *Mar 13 2002 - 16:01

i would strongly recommend Randy and the Rainbows down at the PigPen on March 14th...

RE: Susan... | from heikuMar 13 2002 - 09:37

Me, I recommend local (Ottawa) songstress, Kathleen Edwards, March 15 at the Claypit.

RE: Susan... | from chris kennedyMar 13 2002 - 05:39

Thanks, Susan. While you're there, check out the Future Farmers showcase.

one more thing | from susan331Mar 12 2002 - 20:09

Oh, and Clinic. I forgot Clinic. Go forth and see them, for they will bring you great joy. Amen.

RE: Susan... | from susan331Mar 12 2002 - 14:36

Lessee: I don't know what we're going to see tomorrow night as my editor and I will most likely hop. He's driving in tomorrow afternoon and I'm taking a red eye (blecch) in tonight. In short, though: Richard Buckner; the Easy Action Industries showcase (Holly Golightly, Von Bondies, etc); the spinART gig at Buffalo Billiards (even though their lineup's not as good as it was last year they've got Ron Sexsmith and Clem Snide); the Japanese bands at Beerland; the Jetset showcase (Luna); Neil Finn; the Kill Rock Stars/5 Rue Christine show (esp. Semiautomatic, who rock like a parked van); Paul Burch & the WPA Ballclub; Girls Against Boys; T-Model Ford; the Sympathy For the Record Industry thang (Crack Pipes!!); Imperial Teen; Mary Lou Lord; the Bloodshot showcase, etc. Kindercore always puts on a neat show. And there's a bunch of cool in-stores this week too (Helio Sequence, I Am the World Trade Ctr, Sunshine Fix, etc.)

And of course, the fantabulous Dung Beatles, whom I'll unfortunately miss as I'll be loading my drunk ass on a plane home. Dammit!

RE: Susan... | from chris kennedyMar 12 2002 - 14:09

Susan, Can you recommend any particular shows at SXSW?

RE: Susan... | from Rob sMar 11 2002 - 16:30

l'altra are indeed a fine band and yes that d'n'b song sux.

RE: Susan... | from michelMar 11 2002 - 11:27

It's threads like these that makes me -and maybe others- come read the board frequently ab. Although your point is cristal clear, I do not entirely agree. btw it's been a lot worse a while back, verbal fistfighting almost, all interaction keeps the board alive.

So JK, you should know about a band called l'altra, they're from the chicago area. I picked up their first full length recently, called 'Music of a sinking occasion' (2000). Never saw them mentioned on this board but highly recommendable -apart from the disappointing bass 'n' drummish title track- all songs very relaxed and intense.

RE: Susan... | from abMar 11 2002 - 10:03

oh yeah, i forgot, this is the idahomusic.com message board. a place for IDAHO fans to talk and learn more about IDAHO...


thanks for clarifying that...


sorry if i seem harsh, but shit, let's cut some of the crap here and get back to the purpose of this place people...


jeff, john, dale, keep up the great work! i can't wait to get my grubby mitts on these upcoming IDAHO releases !!!

RE: Susan... | from JKMar 11 2002 - 09:45

Sorry, guys, for some reason it posted my message twice. See ya.

RE: Susan... | from JKMar 11 2002 - 09:43

Oh by the way, Im in the industry as well, susan. That doesnt require you to be nice to me, but sometimes you might not know who youre talking to by a screenname or who you perceive that person to be by words.

Been a studio/live engineer for 12 years now, college educated in that and advanced music theory. Play 5 instruments since a young age, have a band (that I play everything on our recording and have a band for live situations) and 2 electronic projects such as house, drum-n-bass, jungle etc. Have owned my own mid-grade analog/digital studio for 12 years as well as working in numerous others and live venues around Chicago.

I have nothing personally against you, susan, and if you really do have an evil twin, Im sorry for considering it a joke and keeping what I thought was a joke alive into another joke.

By the way, anybody can check out my music if theyd like, at least my own music (not what Ive engineered for others). They were posted in the pre-master stage before I mastered it, alot is old, some date back to '93. You guys can laugh if youd like, I can accept suggestive criticisim, but it all is quite interesting (although no I D A H O). Wishing all a nice day.

www.mp3.com/peelhead peel, my band since 1992, rock with an indie/punk/emo edge.

www.mp3.com/joeykay my electronic division, have hundreds more songs unposted between the 2 projects.

RE: Susan... | from susan331Mar 10 2002 - 20:59

I know. *twirling hair around finger and giggling*

RE: Susan... | from adamMar 10 2002 - 20:21

That's a nasty habit you got there.

RE: Susan... | from susan331Mar 10 2002 - 19:03

Oh, and it's "repertoire."

RE: Susan... | from susan331Mar 10 2002 - 18:53

You don't have to get all pissy...

RE: Susan... | from JKMar 10 2002 - 17:49

I dont dedicate this my life to this message board and read every thread, and I, as well, dont consider it some sort of crime to miss some threads, seemingly punishable by judgement. A simple question usually requires a simple response, which seems to be unobtainable by you. I really dont know, nor want to know who you write for at this point, since your general insincerity twoards me since I kiddingly asked to meet your "evil twin" has been somehow seriously interpreted on your behalf. Good luck in things you do, susan, but sincerity should be a part of your repretoir in the business that your in.

RE: Susan... | from susan331Mar 10 2002 - 17:12

Two of my writing outlets have been mentioned on the board on several occasions. You're not a very careful reader, are you?

RE: Susan... | from JKMar 08 2002 - 20:25

All I asked is what publication you worked for, k? Anyways, didnt get Levitate, just a fan of I D A H O s since the early 90s. All I was reffering to was the other mags I got a hold of in the recent seemed to be too stuffy, I wasnt reffering to your particular magazine, especially since I dont yet know who you write for...which goes back to my question susan..who do you write for (so I can check it out)? Again, please dont assume that my last response was directed twoards you and/or your publication, it wasnt meant to be in the least bit.

RE: Susan... | from chris kennedyMar 08 2002 - 19:00

Susan rules.

indie crowd cripe | from her hipper-than-thounessMar 08 2002 - 13:30

Oh, and JK: It's too bad you don't
read "those Indie zines or participate in the hipper-than-thou indie crowd cripe" as it's those very places you're most likely to read about Idaho. You only bought one CD last year? What about Levitate? I'm not going to argue with you about the abysmal state of the music industry; believe me, I deal with it every day in my working life. But there were plenty of great records that came out last year (Orange Peels, Mark Eitzel, Spiritualized, Low, Black Box Recorder and Red House Painters, to name a few) and it was a true thrill for me to talk to the people who made them. As much as I love slicing and dicing the artists (ha!) befouling Billboard's Top 40 charts I'd much rather devote my time and energy to covering bands I give a damn about. I always have. And I'm fortunate to have editors who a.) feel the same way and b.) let me say whatever I might need to say about them at that particular point in time. If that falls under the heading of "hipper-than-thou indie cripe," so be it-- even though it's an insult of the highest order imaginable.

rico.... suave! | from susan331Mar 08 2002 - 12:35

Try www.insound.com, Gerardo.

RE: Susan... | from gerardoMar 08 2002 - 07:07

hi Susan
I'm Italian fan OF Mark Eitzel

I would like to change some opinions of his music and if you can help me to find some of his records that don't exist in Italy
Thank you very much

RE: Susan... | from chris kennedyMar 08 2002 - 06:01

Susan, Thanks for the tip. I'll try to get my hands on the unedited version. I had a similar undergrad experience, and my grad school days were even more hectic. Now I make grad students do my bidding in the MFA program I direct. It's the perfect job for someone with my sadistic tendencies.

RE: Susan... | from JKMar 07 2002 - 22:04

What publication does she write for anyways? I dont read those Indie zines or participate in the hipper-than-thou indie crowd cripe...geez didnt even buy one CD last year due to the major lame factor in music and the capitalist undermining of great independent labels. No, Im wrong, bought The Doves last year. Ok, anyways, who does she write for?

RE: Susan... | from susan331Mar 07 2002 - 22:03

Sure-- when I'm old and incontinent and desperate for a lay.

RE: Susan... | from spellcheckMar 07 2002 - 21:28

I luv you suzan. Ands I caen spel good,to. wil youe marie mmee?

RE: Susan... | from susan331Mar 07 2002 - 16:11

Thanks so much. I have a special spot in my heart for people who can spell. I should know because I was a copy editor-- THE copy editor, I should say-- at my college newspaper my last semester in fall '98 (during which time I was also carrying 16 units and cutting class to do interviews. But that's another story for another time.) As for the Eitzel story, the Big Takeover did a great job laying it out but they unfortunately edited it a bit more than I would've liked. FYI: That piece ran uncut and its entirety in Stomp & Stammer last May with original photographs. If you visit
http://www.stompandstammer.com they can fill you in on back-issue ordering-- I believe they only cost a couple bucks.

eitzel piece | from chris kennedyMar 07 2002 - 12:42

Hi Susan, I read your Eitzel piece in BTO. I owe you two dollars. It was a very good bit of writing. I should know, because I am a good speller. P.S. It must feel great to get compliments from total strangers on a message board. I love the 21st century.
