Re: Everclear to be inducted into the Oregon Music Hall Of F

Well, Like I said, I think they are inducting a band, not individual people. And let's be real, Everclear is Art Alexakis. Always has been. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXxPPt3tG8I He wrote the songs but it's important to recognize the energy and chemistry the other guys brought, especially in th...

Re: Everclear to be inducted into the Oregon Music Hall Of F

I'm not questioning whether or not they're nice people, or whether or not they're the ones Art would be playing with at the ceremony (if they play at the ceremony, I don't know how that works) since Art is still ripping on Greg and Craig in interviews nearly ten years after they left the band. It wo...

Re: Everclear to be inducted into the Oregon Music Hall Of F

Hmmmm... sounds like Craig and Greg are going to be the ones inducted since the newer guys aren't mentioned and they refer to that lineup as the "classic lineup." Which is as it should be, wouldn't really make sense to induct the newest version.

Re: Wishing : Is it Freak or Greek ???

Not only is it freak, but he puts a great deal of emphasis on the "f" sound in the word. Like he's going fffffffreak.

Re: Everclear on YouTube

Greg continues to be a serious class act. I just wish he'd put out more music, that Oohlas record was fantastic and I really dig his songwriting.

Re: The Official "Sparkle & Fade" Tour Petition

Art doesn't have the voice to do S&P the whole way through ... he would mess it up if he tried ... fall short . maybe what he could do is an acoustic set of rare Sparke and Fade and SMFTA tracks . the rare ones JC Actually I think S&F is more suited to Art's current range than any other album. He s...

Re: Good Interview about Invisible Stars

Wow he's still really pushing that "Craig and Greg were just hired hands" angle.

Is "Deep In, Empty Out" the best Everclear song OF ALL TIME?

I'm going to say yes. At the very least "Why can't you talk to me?/I hear your voice everywhere else/Oh, why do you have to be/Sloppy drunk just to say I am your friend?" is the best lyric Art has ever written. IMO. The fact that this never made it onto any sort of official release is almost criminal.

Re: BCWYAF Music Video to be published tomorrow

It's up now on the youtube.

I like it. Certainly a step up from that Hater Jesus rubbish. Looks like they had a budget... is this what those re-record albums paid for?

Re: Invisible Stars - Your thoughs

I'm in the pro-"Wishing" camp. At least as far as the chorus goes. This is one instance where I think Art's usual lack of subtlety works in his favor. "Please don't leave me" is such a naked statement to make, I can't help but enjoy it. Reminds me a bit of "Why do you have to be sloppy drunk just to...

Re: Invisible Stars - Your thoughs

I like Babytalk. :( Always made me wish Craig and Art had done more vocal interplay like that, even if the lyrics were boneheaded as fuck. And it had wah-wah bass. I'm conflicted on Jackie Robinson. It's really catchy and I love the intro but man those lyrics are really unsubtle. I've always had the...

Re: If you could create Summerland setlist...

It's probably just going to be a shorter version of the same setlist they've been playing for the last eight years.

Wow that's uncanny, Chris. I might have to do that to my copy when I get it.
