    No Murph, but Lou said not to worry. He’ll be back. — http://www.cooldadmusic.com/2013/06/dinosaur-jr-played-irving-plaza-on.html#.UbXITPaY4x0

    Kyle Spence is a great drummer; saw him play with J and the Fog at MBV ATP. A more than adequate stand in for Murph.

    Ah… Kyle. Mis-typed it as Keith. Fixed now. Apologies to Mr. Spence. I don’t keep notes. Maybe I should.

    Didn’t really notice on Friday, but that drum looks pretty big in the pic.

    Damn….that was fucking awesome….saw a band in Athens Saturday night that had that deep sludgey sound…pressed us into the freaking floor. It was N I C E (screamed in my deepest harshest voice)….after the show, we were like hmmm, was that really so awesome or were we just so in need of a diversion.

    I had to say…that although I’ve said here before that I didn’t like that deep wound stuff….I’ve discovered….for me….its not for listening to at home or in the car…but this type of sound works best live and in person. Our new moon Gemini Saturday celebration band did their thang in this tiny space (holds 50?) We sat against a back wall on a table and the pictures on the walls were shaking, the table was vibrating, the floor was humming along with my ass, rib cage and pineal gland. Afterwards, walking back to the car….everything felt still very stimulated…like you know what I mean, the body was still processing it, still sort of humming…and I turned to my friend and said…”I think we just got fucked with sound”….that puts it into a kind of performance art type of event. I was super stoned which made it even more tasty. I had not had this thing happen before sooooo strongly. I suppose the smaller the club the deeper the rub. I don’t know. They are playing again in a few weeks at another small space and my girl and I are so already there. The sound brothel experience is what we are calling it. Oh God…
