next month when i see Sonic Youth
(finally, for the first time) i was planning on asking about the stolen equipment since i never heard anything else about it. i've always wondered what happened to all of it and if the people who stole really realized WHO it belonged to.
but can you imagine, going into some pawn shop somewhere and finding one the SY guitars, it would be amazing. the temptation to keep it would be there but i'd have to return it to it's owner.

No, but now I think I must.
Does anyone know if they ever got any of their gear back that was ripped off some years ago? They had all of those crazily painted amps and the weirdly strung guitars, and the rumor was that they were all stolen.

That's a dangerous thread you started Adam!
Hey Dan - maybe you and John can do a good old fashioned LA "cattle call" audition for a singer. Of course if David Lee Roth is available, poor saps like Adam and I are pretty much out of luck. (insert cheezy smiley face here)

That would be cool. You guys need another guitar/vox? I'd move out West for that band......

I personally am looking forward to Jeff completing this record completely solo. Too many people end up trying to pin the sound of Idaho on a guitar player, forgetting that since This Way Out, Jeff has been one of the guitarists and the principal arranger of most of the music. As much as I would have liked to have been a part of the new one, I think it is better that we all get a chance to hear where he wants to take things, and not another collaboration.
Perhaps Sir John Berry and I should make some kind of feedback frenzy thing for fun?

I bought the record a few weeks ago
and I was wondering if
Sir John Berry will be playing on the next record? I think most everyone would agree it would be quite a treat!! When is it due out?

wanna know the weirdest fucking thing EVER!, I also just bought the live album from Avalanche Records in Edinburgh!

i really appreciated the liner notes in the live album. i didnt know about those dark days of early idaho, i always kind of suspected there was something going on - how can someone listen to the emotional assault that is the live album (or year after year for that matter) and not think there was something fueling all the pathos? anyway john's liner notes really brought a new dimension into the music for me, and i can only appreciate idaho all the more for it.

Well,Gerard, I don't know where to begin. Yes, we are planning a Vol. 2, most likely for spring/summer 2002.Probably made up of unreleased material. I'm sorry you didn't know about some of the sordid history from early in the life of the band. The liner notes for "People like us.." were meant to be an honest account of the time. Believe me, they are restrained. It could have been much, much worse. You were half right though, Jeff is well brought up and I am polite, in a Hannibal Lector sort of way.

I just bought the live album at Avalanche records in Edinburgh, Scotland, and its made me curious on a couple of things. Firstly, its called Volume 1 - is there a second one coming out or is it already available? And secondly, I was amazed to see the reference to the 'needle in the arm' episode. I thought Idaho were a well-brought up, polite, introspective bunch of graduates who make interesting orchestral-style feedback sonic extravaganzas. I had you tagged into a kind of 'Music from Big Pink' dedication-type package of Jeff hunched over his Mac and John or Dan making occasional suggestions, and then you go all Jane's Addiction on me and confound my expectations.
The role of the serious fan is to interpret the music and the band in his own way and invest it with his own opinions and judgements. So how dare you go and confuse me and make me have to categorise you all over again? Its just not fair.
The point is, the live album is good, and contrary to what you've written on the inlay the sound quality is not bad at all, especially considering how it was done. Keep it coming, and stop confusing me!
