Why I Don't Believe In God

Night Train To Memphis

In 1997, before the release of "So Much for the Afterglow", Art Alexakis toured the country on a Solo Acoustic tour to play some of his new songs from his upcoming album, and also to play a few fan favorites. From his solo tour is a crowd involved acoustic performance of "Night Train To Memphis" which was performed on 4/9/97 in New York, NY. Later on that year when Everclear came out to tour in support of "So Much For The Afterglow", Art performed a rare solo acoustic version of "Why I Don't Believe In God" on 11/3/97 in Milwaukee, WI. Hope you enjoy them!

Tri-Polar - Let's Get High

A lot of you know that Craig has formed a new band, Tri-Polar. This MP3 is a cut from the band's new self titled album. Check out www.tripolarmusic.com for more info!

Blondes
I Can't Hold Myself In Line
The Good Witch Of The North

In 2002, Art decided to travel the country again on another Solo Acoustic tour in mid-2002. During the tour, he played a bunch of obscure Everclear, Colorfinger, and random covers that he hadn't played before in years. An acoustic rendition of "Blondes" was performed on 4/1/02 in New York, NY. Followed 2 days later with the only known performance of Merle Haggard's "I Can't Hold Myself In Line" and also a pretty darn good acoustic rendition of "The Good Witch Of the North" in San Fransisco, CA. Enjoy!

Sex with a Movie Star
Glorious

For the MP3's of the Whenever, I have a real treat for you all. The first known performance of "Sex With A Movie Star", and another live performance of the new song "Glorious." Both songs were recorded by me on 11/3/04 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to start off the new tour.

For This Week's MP3 of the Whenever, I'm going with 2 songs from the Good Time For A Bad Attitude Album, Misery Whip and Babytalk. This performance is actually the first time Babytalk is played and Greg goofs up on it twice before they actually get it right. It's a shame these songs weren't played after the release of Good Time For A Bad Attitude. Both songs were performed on 1/26/01 in Park City, Utah.

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I have a real treat. Think you've heard everything from Live From Toronto? Think again, I have 2 cover songs that the band played that was not included on the Japanese 8 track EP. An awesome cover of "Night Moves," and a classic closer to the show, a cover of AC/DC's "Sin City", with Craig on lead vocals. These songs along with the entire Live From Toronto EP, were performed on 1/14/98. Hope you enjoy it!

Surrender

For This Week's MP3 of the Whenever, I went with a staple closer from the Slow Motion Daydream Tour, Surrender. A great rendition of the classic Cheap Trick song that Art references in "Sunshine (That Acid Summer)", I'm sure you will all enjoy. This performance took place on 7/26/03.

Out Of My Depth

What better way to celebrate the 7th anniversary of Hungry & Hollow than the return of MP3 of the Whenever? To answer that, how about a rare performance of one of my favorite Everclear songs, Out Of My Depth. This song was recorded on January 26, 2001 at Harry O's in Park City, UT. Hope you enjoy!

These are two new songs by Everclear, recorded at the August 30, 2004 in Hilton Head, SC at Monkey Business. Glorious has been talked about by Art since 2002, and he played it a few times in 2003. However a known full recording of the song did not exist, until this version. Beautiful Dream is brand new, and this recording is only the second time it has been played live. HUGE thanks go out to jcrab66 for recording this whole show and sharing it with the fans, as well as allowing us to post MP3 versions of these two songs. Also a thanks to White Lightning's Chris B, for remastering and converting the songs to MP3.

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I picked another song from the same show as last week's MP3. I went with an all time favorite song of mine, The Twistinside. This song was recorded live in concert June 4, 1998 in New York City, NY at the Roseland. Enjoy.

Sunflowers

Sunflowers has rarely been played live, and when it has been played there is no known decent quality recording of it...until now! The June 4, 1998 New York City show has long been sought after by Everclear collectors for it's great setlist, and the quality of the performances, however only one, mediocare at best, recording was known to exist. Well thanks to a conversation with White Lightning's Chris Blackburn I realized that I, and I alone, had been sitting on a high quality recording of this show for a number of years. I hope everyone enjoys Sunflowers, recorded live in concert June 4, 1998 in New York City, NY at the Roseland.

Speed Racer

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I picked Speed Racer. Since I first saw the Speed Racer cartoon (early 1990's MTV began airing Speed Racer), I've loved the show. So what could be better then hearing your favorite band covering the theme song to a show that you really enjoy? This song was recorded September 01, 2002 at the Bumbershoot Festival, in Seattle, WA. Enjoy.

White Men In Black Suits

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I decided to go with a live version of White Men In Black Suits. Over the years, I've actually gotten a LOT of request for a live version of this particular, however until last month Everclear had never played the song live (or if they have no recordings, or setlist existed). This song was recorded September 01, 2002 at the Bumbershoot Festival, in Seattle, WA. Enjoy.

Volvo Driving Soccer Mom

After posting the last two MP3s of the Whenever from Everclear's recent performance in Seattle, I received multiple request to hear the version of Volvo Driving Soccer Mom played at the same show. This is the first time this song was performed live by Everclear (previous versions where only Art solo). This song was recorded September 01, 2002 at the Bumbershoot Festival, in Seattle, WA. Enjoy.

Blackjack

And the new songs keep coming! Here is another new song, that Everclear performed this weekend...the full version of Blackjack. This song was recorded September 01, 2002 at the Bumbershoot Festival, in Seattle, WA. Enjoy.
Man, I can barely wait for the new album, and the more I hear from it, the less I can wait! Everclear just had their first show since finishing the album on Saturday, and they played 3 of the new songs. The first song they played was How To Win Friends and Influence People. Art was too far away from his microphone so the vocals are a bit low, but musically...the song just rocks! This song was recorded September 01, 2002 at the Bumbershoot Festival, in Seattle, WA. Enjoy.

Queen of the Air (live)

I randomly picked up a CD to try and find a song for this week's MP3 and I really lucked out. As I listened to the CD, I came across a real jewel. On this CD there was a recording of the only known live performance of the Sparkle & Fade song Queen of the Air. This live version of Queen of the Air was recorded on August 14, 1996 in Hollywood, CA at Billboard Live. I hope everyone enjoys.

Local God (acoustic)

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I searched though some of the recent performances I have recordings of and I came across an acoustic version of Local God. While the bass levels on this recording are not to the level that I generally like, I still think that this song is still worthy of being the MP3 of the Whenever. This version was recorded on March 9, 2002 at the Benson Hotel in Portland, OR. Enjoy.

George Bush Part 1 (Living in the Reagan Days)

I had a request this week for a song off of the Art Alexakis Demography bootleg, which is full of rare tracks recorded by Art before he was in Everclear. So, the rare song I picked was George Bush Part 1 (Living in the Reagan Days). The song was written in 1991, and recorded acoustically by Art as a practice demo for the rest of Colorfinger to listen to and practice playing with. As far as I know the song has never been performed live by Colorfinger. I hope you all enjoy.

Loser Makes Good

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I'm fufilling a request for a fan who wanted to hear a Loser Makes Good from The Satyricon. This version was recorded in April of 1993 at Satyricon in Portland, Or. back when Scott Cuthbert was still the band's drummer. As I have mentioned before, Loser Makes Good is a song about the insane homeless man who shot and killed Art's friend, Philip Bury. Bury is better known as the Pornobilly rocker, Buck Naked. Enjoy.

Strawberry

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I'm fufilling a request for a fan who wanted to hear a recent live version of the fan favorite Strawberry. This version was recorded on July 29, 2001 at Sun Theatre in Anaheim, CA. Enjoy.
I had a request for any song from Art's recent solo tour. So, I decided to go with a rare performance of a song Art wrote for his daughter. This acoustic version of Annabella's song was recorded during Art's solo tour on April 3, 2002 at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco, CA. Enjoy!
I had a special request this week for a rare song written by Art called Our Weird Year. The song was written in 1991, and recorded acoustically by Art as a practice demo for the rest of Colorfinger to listen to and practice playing with. As far as I know the song has never been preformed live by Colorfinger. I hope you all enjoy this rare treat.

I Will Buy You A New Life

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I decided to go a live version of I Will Buy You a New Life. Not that the song has much to do with websites, but I thought it was a good choice since the I just relaunched H&H with a new design. This version was recorded on July 29, 2001 at Sun Theatre in Anaheim, CA. Enjoy.

Amphetamine

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I'm fufilling a request of a fellow fan who wanted to hear a live version of Amphetamine. This version was recorded on July 29, 2001 at Sun Theatre in Anaheim, CA. Enjoy.

Speed Racer
The Twistinside

Well, for the first time in a VERY long while I missed doing a week of my MP3 of the Whenever section, so I am posting two songs for this week to make up for it. The first MP3 is a rare live performance of the theme song to the cartoon Speed Racer. This was recorded on August 14, 1996 at Billboard Live in West Hollywood, CA. The second MP3 is a of a live acoustic performance of The Twistinside and was recorded during Art's solo tour on April 3, 2002 at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco, CA. Enjoy!

Here We Go Again

Here this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I chose a live version of Here We Go Again. Art performed this on his April 1, 2002 solo tour stop at the Supper Club in New York City, NY. Enjoy

So Much For The Afterglow

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I'm fufilling a request of a fellow fan who wanted to hear a new version of So Much For The Afterglow. This version was recorded on July 29, 2001 at Sun Theatre in Anaheim, CA. Enjoy.

Volvo Driving Soccer Mom

This week was done a little differently then usual. Rather then me taking a request for an MP3, someone sent me an MP3, and I'm posting it for you. A HUGE thanks goes out to Don, for recording this, and send it to me. Here's what Don had to say about this week's MP3 of the Whenever:

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I have sent in a live version of an upcoming Everclear song, Volvo Driving Soccer Mom. A standard in Art's 2002 Solo Tour setlist, Art made a habit of incorporating the use of audience members to do the backing vocals to this song. Certain lyrics have changed from show-to-show, but the overall feel is the same. This MP3 was recorded live at the Paradise in Boston, MA on March 30, 2002.

I also have the version of Art performing Volvo Driving Soccer Mom on Late World with Zach for you to download.

Everything To Everyone

You know what, Don sent me another MP3 and I couldn't pass up posting it RIGHT NOW! Don kicks ass. Art knows it, and you will too after listening to this MP3. Again, Here is what Don had to say:

Here is a live version of Everything to Everyone. Another standard in Art's 2002 Solo Tour setlist, Art made a habit of incorporating the use of an audience member to do the keyboard intro to the song. I'm featured on keyboards/background vocals here. This MP3 was recorded live at the Paradise in Boston, MA on March 30, 2002.

Nervous & Weird

For this week's MP3 I thought I'd give you all something a bit rare. I know what you are all thinking..a live version of Nervous & Weird isn't that rare, true...but how about a live, ACOUSTIC version of Nervous & Weird? This version was recorded in November 15, 1995 at Cat's Paw Studios for WNNX's 99x Live X Acoustic. White Lightning has a great live acoustic performance of Electra Made Me Blind from this same recording. I suggest you check it out here.

Heroin Girl

This week's MP3 of the Whenever comes from the same 1993 demo as Deep In, Empty Out. Unlike the versions of The Twistinside and 1975 found on this same demo, this version of Heroin Girl sticks pretty close to the version later recorded for album release. In fact, because of this I have been reluctant to post this song...but I have recieve a lot of request for it, so I am posting it. Everclear's entire 1993 demo, also known as both the Giant Records Demo and the Deep In, Empty Out demo, is now available on my site.

01: Heroin Girl
02: The Twistinside
03: 1975
04: Deep In, Empty Out
