Re: Band update?

jcrother Tue May 24 16:07:31 1994

 What's the band doing this summer?  I've seen one June date for the Super Jam
 in Athens.  After this I guess they're recording in upstate NY.  Does anyone
 know how long? And when might they hit the road again?  They definitely 
 deserve a rest but I'm itching to see em again...

recording in bearsville until July 19th [or when the album's finished i 
imagine]  from July 19th on DMB will be touring the southeast.  nothing 
confirmed yet.

then from August 16th until Sept 10th DBM will be touring with the Horde 
on the New England and east coast run.

after that, they will be taking three weeks off and the album is due out 
at the end of Sept, beginning of October.

that's all i know.

Two Step Transcription

NebuIous@aol.com Tue May 24 19:20:34 1994

The verses in this song are very hard to figure out, but I did my best.  It's
an okay fake...

Two Step

when I'm not totally in tune with the two recordings I based this
transcription on.


Verse -

follow along once or twice, and you'll hear it.

Dm   C   Am   Dm   C   Gm
F    C   Am   Dm   C   Bb
F    Bb  Am   Gm   Dm  (hold the Dm with the above style until

Chorus -

F   C   Bb   Am    x4

F   Bb  Am   Gm   (leads back to the Dm, going back to the verse)

Any comments on this or my other transcriptions?

Fixing the "I'll Back You Up" Chorus

NebuIous@aol.com Tue May 24 22:00:05 1994


I'll Back You Up

Chorus -


Technically, if there is an F in the bass of the D chord, it's a Dm, but that
chord is meant to sound dissident, and in the overall scheme of the song, I
think it's better described as a straight D with an F in the bass, not Dm/F.

Help with "Recently"?

NebuIous@aol.com Mon May 30 13:40:00 1994

Hey all, in my never ending quest to learn every DMB song, I have stumbled
onto Recently.  And I'm stuck.  Granted, I only spent about 2 minutes trying
to get it, but I simply can't figure out ANY of it.

This is what I have so far... (from the CD, diff. versions vary)


Intro Chords (and they sound like the chords to the chorus):

Dm   C   Bm   A   Am   G   (then some riff)

If anyone out there is a musician and has any idea about this song (or
tripping billies, which i'm thinking of doing next), get in touch.  Hell,
even if you aren't a musician, lets talk.  I'm procrastinating for finals,
I've got time.

Orange County HORDE lineup

budkee@unvax.union.edu Wed Jun 1 11:06:17 1994

I've been busy travelling around, so I am not sure if this has been
covered.  But, as I was driving through Orange county there was a
radio add for the show there.

ABB, BT, SCW BHT and Dave Matthews was listed.  I don't know if they
would be on the main stage or not.

There were other names, but I didn't have the necessities to write
them down.

I also don't know when the show is, when it goes on sale (I would
assume soon), or how much it will cost.

Check the horde date stuff for some of that.

how often does dave sing the 'on i once had a girl...' deal?
i've heard it on lover before, and a few other songs.... 
and isn't it a cover line or something? i dunno... somebody
help me out... life is kicking my ass.

from the 5/7/94 after the last verse he sings...
'oh i once had a girl though should i say

is it just me or does this song make anyone else tear up?

on may 17 (yes this was two weeks ago, but i just got back, so shut up;)
I didn't get a lot of mail saying "you idiot, you know nothing!!!", 

this is because 1)gregg is in california and does not have net access
and 2)gregg wasn't there anyway.


well i'm back.  i'm half caught up, and as far as i know, anyone who has
requested the faq and/or lyrics file has gotten it.

to touch on the everything thread that died a month ago, i'd just like to
say that i'm thouroughly impressed by them, and i'm drooling for the day
i turn 21 (among other reasons;) so i can head down to joker's and jm's
to see 'em jam in their former hometown of h-burg.  (the bassist lived
in the same room as my freshman roommate last year, just in case your
needed some sort of useless, brainless trivia to make it through the 
summer.)  BUT, steer for their latest cd, if your interested in buying
one.  it's the one with everyday syndrome on it.  the first two are kind
of silly, and show the production values of a closet h-burg band.  as for
the next disc, our beloved john alagia is producing it, and i haven't a
clue when it will be done or what it will be like.  (much like the general
affairs of dmb these days......GET OUT OF THE STUDIO FOR A DAY FOR PETE'S
SAKE?  [who is pete, anyway]).

well, i'm gonna go ahead and finish catching up.  

ps--that birthday is aug 2nd, in case your needed some more useless trivia.

....lovely lovely girl...(oh)...spin the world around, you got my
world turnin'....

don't hold me to this, but i beleive this was created 7-7-93 at flood
zone when they did recently with greg howard instead of stefan.  greg
simply didn't know the song to well, so they had to jam it out in a 
different way, and the look on daves face when carter started singing
leads me to believe that it was completely impromptu.  (i have know i
idea if they even played recently the night before, which was also a
greg howard affair).  the next week at fz, they were prepared for it,
as if they had been practicing all week, and it sounded really good.

i've heard it's a stones quote.  anyone?

SuperJam comments

dforbis@birch.ee.vt.edu Tue Jun 14 10:46:48 1994

Hi everyone -

Well, I'm back from SuperJam, and it was a blast.  The weather was
great (until WSP came on), the music was awesome, and the venue
was really cool.  I got a scorching case of sunburn...

One Sweet World
Tripping Billies
True Reflection
Seek Up
2-Step (*)
Ants Marching (*)

(*) - w/Warren Haynes

Pretty loose (but GOOD) show, with a surprising number of mistakes;
Dave cued Boyd's solo in Tripping Billies about 5 seconds too soon,
so there was a pretty noticable lull in the song until it came time for
the solo.  Pretty funny, Dave was laughing, Boyd was grinning...  
Boyd butchered one of the verses in True Reflection, dissolving into

More interestingly, it seemed that 2Step had different lyrics (or at
least ones that I had NEVER heard before).  Could they be recording a 
different version for the album?  Is there anybody "in the know" who
could address this question?

Makes Sense to Me
Kingdoms to Come
(new song? sung by JoJo)

I left after Hatfield, they had just started a rain delay that I didn't
think would stop, and considering I had a 375 mile drive ahead of me, I
decided to go.  Anybody know if they continued?

Also, nothing could have topped Hatfield.  This was, excuse my French, 
unbefuckinglievable.  A spectacular lightning display was starting, and
they played right to it.  An intensity level was reached that I have 
rarely seen at concerts.  Very fitting song to play, too, hmm?

Great DMB story

NebuIous@aol.com Tue Jun 21 22:25:13 1994

Well, for one of my internships this summer, I'm lookin' around CompuServe
(boooring), and happened upon this while mentioning DMB... I find it to be an
absolutely FABULOUS story.  Enjoy. :)

Hi Ben...

many apologies for the delay in responding to your Dave Matthew's Band msg.
(i've been asleep with the plague)...

getting back to our conversation...

my college roommate (former roomie, I graduated awhile back now) works for a
record company and was out w/ another friend checking out bands when she saw
DMB.  She kept watching and watching and thinking that there was something
familiar about this guy (that would be Dave).  Finally, it dawns on her that
DM is the same guy who was her 5th grade PG boyfriend.  She went backstage
and they spent hours catching up on life.  life's fulla those strange

recently, she sent me some of his music...along with lyrics of a love song he
wrote her in fifth grade...pretty funny stuff.

so, ben, how about yourself?

signed w/ respect to a fellow fan..



just another memo from the cellar,

And when's it supposed to be out?  Sometime in the fall is what I remember.

Remember 2 Albums

jjthomps@teton.Mines.Colorado.EDU Wed Jul 6 12:49:31 1994

Well minaret-a-net-you-bet-go-get-ers,

What I know about the album is mostly production wise.  Dave was excited
that so many big producers were interested in working with the band (guys
like T-Bone Burnett, and others who's names escape me) but he said they
were most impressed with Steve Lillywhite because he was one of the only
ones who didn't want to trim down the songs.  By that I mean cut back the
drumming to what is known as a "radio friendly" groove".  Dave said he was
interested in all kinds of stuff being thrown in the mix - "like a triangle
in the background".  I have to say that knowing Steve Lillywhite is
producing gives me a lot of confidence that the album will be a true
representation of the band. (listen to U2's debut - Boy, another Lillywhite
production, and one of my all time tops)

Dave also said they were looking for some guest musicians to be on the
album.  He said, "I'm such a blabber mouth, and I want to say who, but
nothing is confirmed." So I didn't press the issue - besides it would be a
cool surprise(unlike the phish album's guests).  He did say that Tim
Reynolds would be in the studio with them the whole time.  

As for songs, I have asked about this a couple of times.  Once he said that
he was interested in pushing the limits of time on CD - I believe the max
is like 74 or 76 minutes.  And he wasn't planning on redoing any of the R2T
songs because they have so much more material.  At Red Rocks, he mentioned
one song that he wanted to work on - but I don't want to spoil it for the
purists, so e-mail me personally.  

As for writing new songs, I asked about 'Pay for what you get'(I know that
isn't a new song - but this is about the PROCESS of writing) and he said
that the song pretty much was written in one sitting at his manager's apt.
So he does have the capacity to crank stuff out.  I'm really hoping for
some surprises.  I finally have some live shows - and am so thankful to
those who helped me out :), they are like little new albums to me, so just
about the time I learn all of those songs - the next album will arrive -

Sorry if this is too long for our readers with short attention spans...

know if Irving Plaza allows plugging into their soundboard?  I

the album come out in the fall when they will have spent most of
the summer on the road rather than in the studio?

Actually, the Dave Matthews Band has been in the studion full time since May, 
16, 1994.  They will emerge from the studion on or about July 16, 1994.  In 
the last two months, there has been only one performance.  Not sure why there 
is the impression that there has been not studio time, but there you have it.

did a while back) which is more up to date to the FAQ curator, Eric Budke,
who I believe is subscribed to this list and might be reading this...

Irving Plaza is on the corner of 15th Street and Irving Place, which is right
off Union Square Park.

Tickets are $11.50 at the box office, and you can either buy them at the box
office with *CASH ONLY*, or call TicketMonopolizer.  I doubt you could get

Also, for many of you it's no big deal, but they *said* at least that all
shows are all ages, but I remember a few months ago, they had this strange
16+ thing (which wouldn't include me. I turn 16 on July 16th. Yippee!) for a
Hatters show there.

Re: Info, Info...

wmc8s@darwin.clas.virginia.edu Thu Jul 7 21:31:45 1994

Ok, here's my hypotheses for the upcoming Dave cd...

They've been pulling out TWO STEP and BEST OF WHAT'S AROUND
lately...I'd expect those...

Also, maybe True Reflections and What Would You Say...

I heard a VERY vicious rumor that PEOPLE, PEOPLE (for those of
you who were around when Peter was in the band...) might be
pulled out and revamped for this disk...that would be really

I might also hope to see Spotlight and Desperate Hours (Help
Myself, Dangerous Hours...whatever the hell they're calling it
now) on there.

As for new stuff, I taped the CD release show at TRAX, and Dave
did something acoustically, in the middle of the show, between
Quick Lay and Blood (Xmas song).  I've not heard it since, and
noone I know has either.  Dave just said before he started it,
"no reason, just wish me luck".  For those of you with a copy of
this show, you'll know what I'm talking about...for those of you
who don't, I'm sorry I can't be any clearer...:(

OH!!!  Almost forgot...LOVER LAY DOWN is a VERY good possibility,
too...what cd is any good without a love song???  Plus, it used
to be a staple of their live show in '92, and they've pulled it
out and revamped it in the past 7 months or so...

Anyone else got ideas???

People" played again by the Dave Band,

Good Music In Charlottesville

jeg5s@uva.pcmail.virginia.edu Fri Jul 8 13:51:45 1994

Okay, I too mourn the loss of our weekly rock superstars of local
appeal and availability. BUT, Wade Craig notes that "we used to
have good music every week in charlottesville."

methinks that Alma Madre (with members formerly of Indecision and
oother Central Virginia favorites) are pretty hot! They've taken
DMB's spot, every Tuesday night, still with dime beers for two
hours and dollar beers all night. DMB was, lets be honest, good
but a little slow and inconsistent before there was a dedicated
crowd. If people would come out and see Alma Madre, I think theyd
like em, and if people were coming regularly who likedthe band,
the band'd be even better. And, hell, theyrock now!!

SOOO....stop fretting DMB's departure. Let's all show up and
drink many beers at Traxx next Tuesday night. For some, it'll be
an experiment with this "new"band. For others, it'll just be an
opportunity to see minarets netters again. For me, I'm gonna give
some of you some hugs, grab me a cold mug,and then boogie oogie
oogie til i cannot boogie no more!!

if there is any one song dave matthews has ever written that i _don't_

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.

STU_RCTHOMPS@VAX1.ACS.JMU.EDU Tue Jul 12 14:03:38 1994

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.

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

STU_RCTHOMPS@VAX1.ACS.JMU.EDU Tue Jul 12 16:20:17 1994

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

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

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

btw, it got a cheer.

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

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.

DMB on Prague radio

HAUSERBT@pine.circa.ufl.edu Wed Jul 13 14:19:44 1994

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!

RE: DMB in the Czech Rep.

jjthomps@teton.Mines.Colorado.EDU Wed Jul 13 15:42:53 1994

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
"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,

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

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

i'm riding my bike through southern petersburg, va (about the size of
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
this mean.  

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

uh oh...

w-w-wait a sec, did you say seattle?????

STU_RCTHOMPS@VAX1.ACS.JMU.EDU Thu Jul 14 13:43:17 1994

imagine that folks.  charlottesville's finest, off to the grunge capitol
of this particular galactic cluster.  what does that mea?  are folk
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.

out of the northwest like a steamroller out of control, pearl jam 
announces their victory over ticket bastard with a 78 city tour with
MATTHEWS BAND.  venues will hold no more than 16 people and prices
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.

Random Things

NebuIous@aol.com Thu Jul 14 17:01:14 1994

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.)

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.
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,

The Not-Free Show

jeg5s@uva.pcmail.virginia.edu Fri Jul 15 02:54:53 1994

Heard someone at TRAX discussing this tonight (everything played;
very good; recommended, but drink beer!) as though it was going
to be lame somehow, on display for shirts at tables or something
like that.
Indigo Girls played with the Allmans at a similar event (private
party for Arista (same parent company), I think, or maybe it was
Epic. Anyway, all acoustic show with the Allmans; very
entertaining. Sounds like tickets are beyond a longshot, but if
you're out there and can makeit, i wouldnt bag it.

there will be plenty of 1st come-1st served tickets to the second show free

DMB and soulhat

jjthomps@teton.Mines.Colorado.EDU Fri Jul 15 12:30:06 1994

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

the cold war is definitely over, 'cause the former checkoslavakians have
heard the definitive "tie-dye anthem."  dave's spreading across the globe
in much the same way as the volcanic dust for mt pinatubo (sp?), so when
the new cd comes out, whaddya'll say we get together on the top of

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.

now there's a marketing ploy

STU_RCTHOMPS@VAX1.ACS.JMU.EDU Sat Jul 16 17:27:13 1994

(warning, i tried to send this once, but the first word of the post
was "get."  the listproc didn't like that, and sent it back to me.
seems the program tried to "get" a "your" and couldn't find it, so
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.

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
how many people think the gay bees'r cool?

am not going to let her do so.....
Personally, I would like to know if anyone is taping SoulHat, whom I like 
alot and do not have any tapes of....actually info on taping would be 
greatly appreciated since I can scrounge up a deck, but don't know if 
SoulHat allows recordings, and what's the deal with Dave now that he's a 
big RCA stud? Maybe the BMG club could sell bootlegs mail order....
Anyways, gotsa go as a long distance call is neccesary to log in HINT
