Bleached and spiked hair, psychotically glaring at the audience, the whole nine yards. Only Todd Trainer seemed to buck the whole Pistols image. I mean, he could have found one of those big sweaters or something. Paul Cook had style too. He pulled the whole thing off so well, I tell ya. The audience responded by throwing chunks of a dismembered jack-o-lantern at the band. Yow seemed to remember the words to them better than he remembers the words to Jesus Lizard songs.
For a long time, nobody left. The house lights came up and nobody left. Todd Trainer started taking his drum set apart and people booed. There is, however, fairly good audio, which you can download here in flac format. Many of us have waited years for the seldom touring Shellac to make it through our towns or to have the opportunity to travel to see a show it took me 13 years.
With this build up held sacred by one half of the audience, and the other half simply satisfied with catching a killer rock show by some crack musicians, we have this Shellac concert in Chicago on Halloween Setlist: 1. Holidays In The Sun 2. Bodies 3. Pretty Vacant 4. Seventeen 5. Sub-mission 6. My drummer turned me on to Nomeansno the other night and Submission - Shellac & David Yow - Never Mind Shellac Heres David Yow I'm hooked.
Jun 17, Great Bands!!! Good for comming up with different ideas. My pick of the litter definitively is The Jesus Lizard. Jan 9, I dig The Jesus Lizard and nomeansno a lot.
I've never actually Zoricino Kolo - Vlada Todosijević* - Ljiljino Kolo Shellac despite knowing who Steve Albini is.
Jun 18, Jan 18, nyc. Mar 24, Chicago, IL. I forget off the top of my head which marshall head he uses, but it blows me away because its a "modestly" powered solid-state head.
The thing is freakin' loud! Uses a Marshall cab as well. I swear by this band like no other, as they have been playing since the late 70's and have been doing it their way ever since. Every record a Submission - Shellac & David Yow - Never Mind Shellac Heres David Yow treat.
Shellac and Slint are pinocle sp? Tweez is my favorite album by Slint, and Shellac has that spot thats just Oct 29,
