RE: Supersuckers


The Songs All Sound The Same Part II has really been eluding you for what, 18 years now? That's gotta hurt. What is on that Dwarves/Rev Horton Heat record? I remember seeing it online, but refresh my memory. And do bootlegs count as discography? Just curious.

I am waiting on two more CDs before I start my discography site, and they are proving impossible to find.

The ever-elusive The Songs All Sound the Same Part II (Put This On the Barbie, ****er) and the bootleg split with The Dwarves and Rev. Horton Heat, **** Crusties.

I need these rarities before I can properly move forward, and I am ashamed that I do not have them.

I can't wait. That Sucker discography site is becoming a time consuming reality!

Yeah, the timing is not great, but what the hey. The future wife is used to it at this point.

His great 'Suckers collection is slowly becoming mine.

You're going to laugh when you see how much my personal stash has grown since the last time you saw it.

Dude, that is an impressive 45 collection. That guy must be your hero. Don't you love it that this is happening right before your wedding. I am sure that your bride to be is mega-stoked. That "Like A Big ****ing Train" record is awesome. Also loved the multiple versions of "Live At Budokan." One has to love the internet.

I am in Supersuckers eBay overload mode. This dude is selling his collection and we're in week 3 of the festivities.

He is hurting my back account and I'm loving it!

No worries bro-hizz. I'll keep my eye out for any other Suckers swag that we get, and then I'll inconspicuously jake it and send it your way.

Dold -

I totally did not already have that DVD you hooked me up with. I have volume 1, didn't even know there was a volume 2. Biff and I watched the hell out of it. Solid 'Suckers show. Thanks again.

You should tell them to put out a full length album of new material.

That would be a crazy career move for them.

So today I was contacted by the gent who manages The Suckers label, Mid-Fi. Here's what he had to say...


"I'd love to get Eddie an acting career - can you help. I'm serious"


Thought that you'd all enjoy that. Biff when (or should I say "if") this gem is made and released I'll make sure I let you know. I'm sure you'll want to review it.

A box of Rockets is pretty sweet dude.


Might I quote Wock?

"I have a fat stack of CAC..."

Totally awesome.

What's funny is I was pretty poor about saving my CAC posters. I am glad you did. We ended up having so many shows that I got lazy. I have a semi-decent collection of posters from my other bands. The ones I really love our posters that I went to shows of in high school. As I got older I got worse and worse about stealing them off telephone poles, but I still love all of my real old school ones. I just love the fact that I know that I saw The Feelings, Pond and Hazel all in one night. Crap like that makes me feel awesome. And old. I have a poster from Hazel's original last show ever which I am pretty proud of, as well as one from the first time I saw Faith No More. But anymore, I would never take a poster down from a show I saw today. If I ever went to shows. But I agree with Wock, I save everything because in 20 years I know that I will be stoked I did. Christ, looking through my box of Rockets already feels like looking through Rolling Stones from the 1960s. They seem ancient. And yes, I have a box of Rockets.

I have a fat stack of CAC posters, which I'll hold on to forever. I'll be glad that I did 20 years from now. They're packed away out of sight, probably to be taken out when Biff and I construct the ultimate CAC timeline.

Which will never happen.

So I've kind of reached the point where I don't really care about saving the old show posters anymore. I've still got a pile of them somewhere, and they've mostly become kba posters from when I was in the band. As the years have gone by I've just whittled them down farther and farther. I'm keeping posters from Crosstide shows, much for the same reaosn that I still have kba posters.

Anyone else lost their lust for the show poster?

I can't believe I would have thrown it out, but I don't recall seeing it in the last 10 years, so I bet it's gone.

Eh.

Yeah, you totally owned that at one point, I think even Salem style. Did you keep all of your old show posters me-style?

Just curious.

Speaking of the Supersuckers, check out what's on eBay right now.

Biff: Didn't I used to have this on my wall?

I wonder if I still have it somewhere...

A stark reminder of how long I've been going to their shows. I think this was the 3rd time I saw them.

He chatted endlessly about how inspiring it was, how much he learned about the musical creation process, etc. He was pretty passionate when talking about it; you could tell hes a pretty big fan of Earles. I was impressed with how well he articulated the whole experience, I mean for a guy who put a picture of a girl peeing on his album cover I mean.

What did he say about Steve Earle? And way to use your record company jargon ("it should street sometime"). Go Dold!

We didn't chat about he EPs, but I can tell you that the new album is in the can. They just finished recording a few weeks ago, and it should street sometime in the spring. We geeked out a bunch on just music in general, I was suprised at how diverse his ears candy is. I also totally had to bring up what it was like working with Steve Earle and Willie Nelson, and Eddie went off on that for quite some time, which was fine by me, cos they're both stallions in my book.

I second Wock's comment. Why live EPs? If you are releasing a CD just release the whole goddamn show. Lord know there is room. This has never made sense to me.

Oh, I meant to comment on this a while ago.

Yeah, that's cool... Springsteen is definitely back in vogue for all the rockers these days. Nothing wrong with that.

I'd like to hear about the "various things geeky."

I'd also like to know if he mentioned when they're going to stop releasing live EP's and get down to putting out a full length rock record.

I think I can speak for Wock when I say that we both hate your guts. I'm not too surprised about the Springsteen thing. I think Eddie is starting to view himself as more of the traveling troubadour these days. I bet he secretly listens to "Nebraska" in the dark when he is all alone.

Just to make the Bush boys jealous.....I got to sit down and interview Eddie Spaghetti last for work. We had a beer before the Supersuckers show and chatted about various things geeky. I was quite surprised to find that hes totally loving the new Springsteen album, and he also said that working with Steve Earle was amazing and that he was a stallion.
