Subject: ben and clare go f**k yourselves

what's with this "subliminal message crap."  i subscribed to this net
to read about absolutely nothing but the dave matthews band and your
intruding on my karma.  when i see somebody trying to have fun it really
erks me, so cut it out.

by the way, i think rhyme & reason is a shoe-in, and so is #34.

does anyone know about rumors of Tim Reynolds joining the band 
permanently?  I have heard from two goods sources (friends of Coran) that 
he is.  Also, does anyone know if Warren Heynes will be questing on the 
new album.  The versions of Watchtower and Dancing Nancies with Heynes 
are the most amazing music that I have ever heard.

Finally, if any of you have the tapes from the album release parties at 
Trax, what is that new song on there

if there is any one song dave matthews has ever written that i _don't_
want to see on a cd it would definitely _have_ to be #36.  it's the only
song he has left that really shows true stage diversity and creativity.

i was pissed when he botched (imho) halloween on the recently ep.  if he
standardizes 36 by putting one stock version on a comercially available
(and nationally advertised) cd, the i'll hang clare from her shoelaces.

it's almost sickening to think of it.

i listened to a tape i've had for some time but never stayed awake until
the end of the tape, and found out i actually have a copy of people, people.
it was actually pretty nice to hear something by dmb i've never heard
before.  weird.

i'd really like to hear dave put peter's keys onto his keyboard like he
did with angel from montgomery.

that would probably be too cool for me to handle.

Subject: a non dmb post (no gay bees either, but this is funny)

while sojourning in colonial heights last week i spent many useless hours
reading many useless things (such as parade, tv guide, etc) and when i 
stumbled on the cheers and jeers section i found something traumatically
funny.

turns out the bbc has decided to tape sex from the inside.  they mounted
those mini-surgical cameras that they use to tape heart valves in action,
and told the pioneers of pornography to have at it 3 times a day for 3
weeks.

and as i just asked phish.net:

what would you need of 63 different takes of something like this?

btw, it got a cheer.

Subject: Re: FREE DAVE SHOW

There appears to be some confusion about the Seattle show, so let me clear 
things up:

The reality is there are two shows in Seattle, an early show and a late show. 
The early show is an industry event--BMG, RCA's parent company, as well as of 
Arista and Private Music, is having a party (actually a marketing conference), 
and they asked DMB to play a show in order to introduce them to the company.  
That is the show that will be a private-for-industry-only affair, with very 
few tickets available to the public.  Because of the number of people in the 
northwest who expressed an interest in seeing the band, it was decided to add 
a second show--what has become known on the net as the FREE SHOW.  This show 
is in fact free o'charge  :)  It will be at the same venue (the Backstage) in 
the same city (Seattle) on the same day (Sunday the 17th)...only difference is 
it will be a late show, i.e. midnight.  So tell all your friends in the 
pacific northwest that DMB will be in their area on Sunday the 17th for a 
free show at midninght at the Backstage and they are all invited to come!  Any 
questions, call the hotline or the office.
Peace,
CJS

I found this hard to imagine, but my buddy in Richmond works with a guy
who just returned from a few weeks in Eastern Europe and while in Prague
which is either in The Czech Republic or the new Slovakia,(help me out 
geography majors), heard Tripping Billies on the radio.  Kinda extremely
cool...and to think I can't even get a lameass radio station in town to play
anything DMB!

Subject: RE: DMB in the Czech Rep.

Okay, so you thought it was weird to hear Tripping Billies on Prauge
radio... how bout this?

My girlfriend also just returned from a week long trip in Europe.  She
spent her last week in the Czech Rep. and on one of her last nights there
she had a back pack stolen at a restaurant.  (Actually, she left it, then
went back 10 min. later and the waitress said that she never saw it)
Anyway, in the aforementioned pack was a taped copy of her Remember 2
Things CD for her walkman (enter the Twilight Zone theme - Ta na na na...)

I doubt that this copy found its way to the broadcast booth... but just how
well are Bama Rags records distributed in Europe????

Just some thoughts,

BTW - does anyone have the lyrics file, cause I know I'm singing Jimi Thing
wrong when I say:
"If you could keep me floating,
Just for a while,
Till I get to the end of this ?TUNNEL CALLED MOMMY??"

tunnel = birth canal ??

Just some more thoughts,
Jason

uh, two words:  non sequitor

i meant to say guitar.  dave doesn't play keyboard, duh.  but you all 
knew that, right?

anyway, thought i might take this oppurtunity to establish a practice
rather widespread on our parental net (aka: phish.net): dream sharing.

i'm riding my bike through southern petersburg, va (about the size of
any mountainous college town, ie: h-burg, charlottesville, blacksburg)
and come upon this intersection where 2 rodes intersect route 1 from
the same side (making it a five way intersection) and right there under
the stoplight in the southbound lanes of route one is the reverend dean
caulfield setting up stage (the same stage i unwillingly put together
at last spring's wsp, dmb show) and lo and behold, i watch a dave matthews
band performance in the middle of an urbanized route 1.  nolo comprendere,
obviously.  no songs in particular, just a random dream type thing.

now, there's about as much demand for dmb in petersburg, va (which is actually
drug running captial of much of the east coast) as there is for them in
little america (aka: closest manned oupost to the south pole).  so what does
this mean.  

also, chris sabec's last post brought this thought to mind:

is the dave matthews band going to be the latest rage of the bmg record
club?

uh oh...

induced babbler is going to present himself to the city that became the
craze of thousands of smack induced gen x'ers, producing overwrought
pop stars who blow their brains out when they realize that selling your-
self out might actually be a bad thing.

i can see the headlines now:  "The tour of the century!!!!--barreling
out of the northwest like a steamroller out of control, pearl jam 
announces their victory over ticket bastard with a 78 city tour with
special guest from some backwoods college in virginia:  THE DAVE

will be $4.00 for golden circle seats, $2.50 for ga, and a $.000004
service charge for ordering through ticket master.  children admitted
for a modest helping of baked beans and fetus's admitted free."

the ball is rolling, and our trepid explorer is unlikely to save himself
this time (which is all the better for temple of doom was a disgustingly
sexist effort on steven speilburg's part).  so watch your step, people,
dave is gonna be HUGE.

Subject: Random Things

1.) I both agree and disagree with Thompson that #36 shouldn't be on the
album.  On his side, this song could quite possibly be standardized like most
other DMB songs have slowly become.  On the other hand, I'm absolutely in
love with this song, and want every version ever, and a CD version is always
nice.  This is one of the ways I love Phish... they can record a song, and it
may be the definitive version and whatnot, but live, they'll jam like demons
and sometimes take songs places that you never would have dreamed from the CD
(Tweezer, etc.)

2.) I notice two swings on DMB musicianship: From '92 --> mid '93.  Suddenly
they're great.  I have to admit, from the '92 tapes I have, they don't sound
like anything special.  Granted, they were still pretty new (their first show
was what, April '91 or somewherethereabouts?), but they were just a pretty
good band with song really good songs.  Then, from '93 --> early '94 (namebly
georgia theater).  What happened?? They're suddenly the type of band I flip
burgers for just to scrounge up an extra .50 cents to hear "Two Step" on the
jukebox again.  Wait... what the hell am I talking about?

3.) I want everyone to email Clare at least once a day.  It's like that apple
thing that keeps doctors away.  Clare just keeps sanity away.

4.) See you ALL (?) on July 28th.  Ah ha!  Finally on my turf.  Irving Plaza
is about 9 blocks from my house.  Ha!  Virginia can kiss my... aw, forget it.
 I look forward to watching lots of people wander around NYC wondering where
the hell this Irving Plaza place is.  I've already helped out one guy on how
to find the place.  If anyone else needs help, just email me telling me how
you're coming (car, train, walking from Virginia), and I'll try and help any
way I can.

Peace, Love, and #36,
Ben

Indigo Girls played with the Allmans at a similar event (private

Subject: DMB and soulhat

So I just got my copy of the newsletter yesterday(quite a bit of lag time
between the east and here???)  Anyway, if I only owned a private jet I
would skip on over to Brown's Island for the pairing of my two current
favorite bands (soulhat and DMB for those of us who rarely read subject
lines).  But alas, Jason has no private jet (nor the funds to rent a seat
on one of those big silver thangs that go whooom and can pretend its a bird
---)  So the only hope for Jason is to find someone who is planning on
going to the show, then send him/her gifts, flowers, first born child, and
other things to persuade the party who is planning to attend the event in
question to record the afformentioned parties (that is parties named in
said document to be the Dave M. Band and soulhat) and to send me a copy of
such recordings. (my mid-morning attempt at legal-eze).

I know the show is a long way off, but I just can't control my excitement.
Seriously, I would be willing to try a work a trade form my currently
meager collection - or send blank tapes or DATs for you to use.

Anyway, sorry to grovel before lunch,
and check out soulhat if you have the chance (their new album is "good to
be gone" and I have been hearing an acoustic song called "goldmine" on the
radio that is from some acoustic EP that I think is promo-only right
now...)

As you were,

party? i wanna come.  i really want to get drunk tonight.  by the way,
while we're mentioning other bands, i'd like to mention an other band.

anyone here ever heard of day by the river?  they're an athens band
with a killer groove for hangin' out near running water, and was
just wondering how small they actually are.  i think they should be
bigger.  but maybe that's just a humble opinion.

at any rate, if you get the chance, check 'em out.  a guy i met over
phish nye run sported my roommate a copy of their cd.  and it's sweet.

truly.  it is.

it yakked on me.  so be warned all you minarets campers, don't post
with the first word of your post being "get"-thank you, and now on
to are originally scheduled program in it's entirety--)

get your dave matthews band dates at your local kroger, as well as 
you widespread panic coconuts and phish mangoes.  look in your local
grocers "strange fruit" section.

today's anecdote:

i work for my illustrious campus doing nothing but driving around
all day in an '87 ford ranger with no a/c and no fm.  therefore,
we're stuck with that outdated format known as "amplitude modulation."
(has anyone here actually taken the time to turn their radio around
for better reception of an am station, anyway?)  as we all know, the
only thing on am is religious music, oldies, and wrva-richmond, and i
opted for oldies.  the end result?  i heard the original me & julio
yesterday.  i like dave's better.  he won't play it because he says
it doesn't do s&g justice.  granted, s&g wrote the song, but i really
don't think they do themselves justice on it.

let's boycott clare until dave decides to play it again.  eh?

thank you for your time, and if you don't mind, would you please
complete the following survey for a free concert by dmb in seattle,
wa.  (you provide the transportation.)
what does anyone think of the new fruitopia commercials?
what does anyone think of discovery channel contests that make you
  take stupid surveys?
how many people think the gay bees'r cool?
