Too bad about that. NY Times gave a very good review today of Tuesday night's show.

i heard the show last night (wed) in williamsburg was really awesome. my good friend laura went who is a huge fan. said the electric guitar and drums worked well.

Thank you everybody. Kind of in a really dark tunnel right now which keeps getting darker. It is kind of not my style to air this sort of thing out publicly online both for antiquated reasons of decor & because it's weird when I say something somewhere and it ends up as part of the generally-received bio or something. Sort of have to be prudent about saying "here's what's going on with me" too much.

Really can't tell you how much I appreciate your kind words. More than I can say!

Because I have had to cancel one tour and stop booking another in order to be home, you will all have the chance to get way tired of me & my strident ways over the next couple of months tho LOL awesome hit me back yo

j0hn!! i started spinning heretic pride again like literally 5 minutes ago lol. it is great. get better.

deeznuts, Friday, 21 March 2008 01:26 (nine years ago) Permalink

Very sorry to hear about your hard times. I hope you come through more or less intact. Though I don't really know most folks here too well, I'm pretty sure I speak for more than just me when I say, let us know if there's anything we do.

Best wishes for you, J0hn, and whatever yr situation happens to be.

Earlier today, iTunes shuffled "This Year" into "Self-Destructive Zones" by the Drive-By Truckers. They have the same chord progression - an admittedly common one, but it was a cool reprise anyway.

Hope everything starts looking up for you.

Gah, I really wanted to see you in Philly tonight. Get well soon, JD.

was looking forward to catching one of your shows finally, but understand the circumstances for sure. as compensation, i'll keep spinning the discs.

Charlie Howard, Friday, 21 March 2008 03:03 (nine years ago) Permalink

John, saw you on Tuesday at Webster Hall, you played a great show. Get better soon. You're one of my favorites.

Get well and stay strong.

'Sax Rohmer #1' is perhaps my very favourite thing ever just now. Great video, too. I already liked the concept in the first few seconds, and then it KEPT GOING!!

Every time I listen to Heretic Pride I give myself another little kick in the ass for not shelling out to see TMG in Glasgow in December. Any future shouts I make for "J0hn Darn1elle shreds!" will be so much less topical than they would have been then. :'(

Get well soon, John.

Herman G. Neuname, Saturday, 22 March 2008 03:29 (nine years ago) Permalink

All the best, John. Looking forward to sparring amicably real soon.

so that line in marduk t-shirt men's room incident about 'i let myself imagine she was you' is totally fucking devastating and awesome fyi.

Ugh, keep getting bad news lately. Good thoughts sent in your direction, J0hn.

Nice show in DC tonight. Loved the emo intro with the reference to Rites of Spring, and the Mr. Rogers story. Sorry about your health. Best wishes.

six months pass...

just got the PR about the resched - glad to hear you're still playing Manning, was really looking forward to seeing youse (and Wurster!) there

I am hearing them now, on last fm, a song called 'Source Decay'. It sounds like one fellow singing over one rough acoustic guitar. The recording sounds prety rough too, I don't know why that is.

the pinefox, Wednesday, 24 September 2008 10:16 (nine years ago) Permalink

maybe cuz it wasnt recorded v well

t_g, Wednesday, 24 September 2008 11:34 (nine years ago) Permalink

i think the early stuff is pretty much on the rough side.

alex in mainhattan, Wednesday, 24 September 2008 12:47 (nine years ago) Permalink

yeah, man, start with Tallahassee and explore from there if yer at all interested.

Perry-Como-Zombie-Memorial-Radio-Now! (Ioannis), Wednesday, 24 September 2008 12:50 (nine years ago) Permalink

"tallahassee" is the one about that couple breaking up, isn't it? that album is amazing. going into very dark regions of the soul.

alex in mainhattan, Wednesday, 24 September 2008 12:57 (nine years ago) Permalink

yep. that one and the following two are my all-time faves by J0hn.

In true fickle form, my favorite MG album is the last one I played.

i am the small cat (HI DERE), Wednesday, 24 September 2008 13:21 (nine years ago) Permalink

i just discovered "the black ice cream song" from zopilote machine on shuffle. i have a bunch of albums, but except for sunset tree, which i know front to back, i pay attention to one or two tracks for a long time and then keep finding what seem like new tracks.

mte, Wednesday, 24 September 2008 14:09 (nine years ago) Permalink

I always recommend All Hail West Texas as a starting point for some reason, I've never really thought about why, just seemed reasonable. Maybe because the first thing they hear is the Best Ever Death Metal Band Out of Denton and that track seems to appeal pretty bluntly to most people? Er...

RabiesAngentleman, Wednesday, 24 September 2008 15:05 (nine years ago) Permalink

Oh, and they sound rough because he recorded that early stuff on a boombox (multi-xpost)

RabiesAngentleman, Wednesday, 24 September 2008 15:06 (nine years ago) Permalink

yeah, but that album sounds pretty one-note.

Perry-Como-Zombie-Memorial-Radio-Now! (Ioannis), Wednesday, 24 September 2008 15:08 (nine years ago) Permalink

in terms of...?

RabiesAngentleman, Wednesday, 24 September 2008 15:17 (nine years ago) Permalink

style, sound, 'production', song-writing, you name it.
