For this week's MP3 I chose a live version the powerful World of Noise track Loser Makes Good. This song was my favorite World Of Noise song the first time I heard the album. While it may no longer be my favorite song from the album, it's still a really great song, with an interesting, yet very sad story behind it. Loser Makes Good is a song about the insane homeless man who shot and killed Art's friend, Philip Bury. Philip was better known by his music stagename Buck Naked, of the San Fransico band Buck Naked and The Barebottom Boys. Art produced and released Buck Naked and The Barebottom Boys' only album on Shindig Records (the album was later re-released on Heyday Records). Anyways, this version was recorded on July 29, 2001 at Sun Theatre in Anaheim, CA. Enjoy

When It All Goes Wrong Again

Well, I'm still on my Spring Break, but I thought I'd update the MP3 of the Whenever for you all. For this week's MP3, I chose a live version of When It All Goes Wrong Again. This version was recorded on July 29, 2001 at Sun Theatre in Anaheim, CA. Enjoy

For Pete's Sake

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I took a request for a live version of the Everclear b-side, For Pete's Sake. This version was recorded on August 19, 1993 at the X-Ray Cafe in Portland, OR. I hope you all enjoy. Also I started my Spring Break today, so I may be out of touch this next week.

AM Radio

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I chose AM Radio. This song was definitely a stretch stylistically for Everclear but I think they did a great job with it. You know I for one had a hard time beleiving that Everclear could play this song live well, the song just had so much, samples, loops, etc..., but this MP3 will prove to you that they can! This version was recorded on July 29, 2001 at Sun Theatre in Anaheim, CA. You'll also get to hear what Art think's about Jenifer Lopez's (J Lo.) and her music. Enjoy.

Suffragette City

I know I just posted last week's MP3 of the Whenever two days ago, but I was just too excited about this week's MP3 to wait! I think a lot of you are really going to love this. I get a lot of request for newer material, but I've always had a hard time finding higher quality new shows. But I have a great one now...actually I have a couple of new shows that are great quality! (Thanks Ashton!). Anyways, those of you looking for new material will love this, and those of you who love to hear Craig sing will love it just as well. For this weeks MP3 I (excitedly) chose Everclear performing a cover of David Bowie's Suffragette City. This version was recorded on July 29, 2001 at Sun Theatre in Anaheim, CA. Man, I haven't been this excited about an MP3 of the Whenever in a long time. I really hope you all enjoy it...I know I did!

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I chose a live version of the Everclear b-side Blondes. This version was recorded on September 19, 1993 at the X-Ray Cafe in Portland, Or. back when Scott Cuthbert was still the band's drummer. Enjoy.
For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I chose Your Genius Hands. This version was recorded in April of 1993 at Satyricon in Portland, Or. back when Scott Cuthbert was still the band's drummer. As an interesting note, after the song is over you'll hear the band jam the Everclear instrumental Slow Motion Genius. For those of you not aware, Slow Motion Genius is just a instrumental, slow tempo version of Your Genius Hands. Enjoy.
For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I went with a special request, this time for The Twistinside, which has to be one of my top Everclear favorites. This was version recorded at the Opera House in Toronto, Canada on February 14, 1996. I hope everyone enjoys this great song.
Hey gang...for this week's MP3 of the Whenever I chose an early version of Chemical Smile. This live performance, recorded on August 19, 1993 at the X-Ray Cafe in Portland, OR is clearly an early version of the song that was later to be put on Sparkle & Fade. While the music shows that this song is clearly Chemical Smile, the lyrics show that this was a very early version of the song. While the musically performance is good, the shock value of hearing a song we all know with different lyrics makes this well worth the download. I'd assume that the song went by the name "She Says" or "She Says No" at that point in time, and not Chemical Smile, since no where in this version of the song does Art sing the words "chemical smile". But then again, that didn't stop him from naming the song Santa Monica Santa Monica. Anyways...enjoy

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I'm posting a pretty rare song. The song is called The Shakin' Brave and is performed acoustically by Art and Karl Karl Maruyama during a recorded practice session. While it is assumed that this practice session was held sometime in 1990, no one knows for certain. On a side note, I am also posting this MP3 on The Color Pit, a new Colorfinger website by Ashton Bailey and myself. Be sure to check the Color Pit out and enjoy this song.

Sparkle

For This week's MP3 of the Whenever, I choose a live performance of Sparkle. This version was recorded in April of 1993 at Satyricon in Portland, Or. back when Scott Cuthbert was still the band's drummer. This version was dubbed the "speed metal version" of Sparkle, I know it's a faster version of Sparkle, but my ears seem to be missing the speed metal sound in this song...but that doesn't take away from it being a good song by any means. Enjoy.
Hey hope everyone started the new year off in a good way. I'm getting ready for my vacation to end in a matter of days. Vacations never seem long enough, oh well. For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I chose the fan favorite Summerland. This was version recorded at the Opera House in Toronto, Canada on February 14, 1996. Enjoy

Heroin Girl

I hope everyone has enjoyed their holiday so far, and I also want to wish everyone a happy new year. For MP3 of the Whenever, I chose a live version of Heroin Girl. This was recorded at the Opera House in Toronto, Canada on February 14, 1996. Enjoy, and have a heppy new year!

So Much For The Afterglow

My vacation is going well, I hope everyone else is enjoying their holiday season. For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I chose a live version of So Much For The Afterglow. This particular version was recorded at the Universal City Walk in Los Angeles, CA. on October 5, 1997. Enjoy, and happy holidays.

Normal Like You

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I choose Normal Like You. This particular version was recorded live at Mercer Arena in Seattle, WA on Decemberr 10, 1997. Well, I'm going off on my vacation and will be gone of a two weeks, so I may not have to much going on with my site. I will have new MP3s put up for both of the Whenevers I'm gone. Happy holidays to everyone.

Strawberry

I have finals this week and part of next week, but I wanted to update my site, so I asked a friend to name an Everclear song for me and she picked Strawberry. So, for this week's MP3 I'm giving you a live version of Strawberry. Frankly, I wasn't too surprised since it is such a fan favorite at concerts. This particular version is different from how the band plays the song now, namely because the aren't using acoustic instruments here. It was recorded at the Opera House in Toronto, Canada on February 14, 1996. Enjoy

El Distorto De Melodica

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I chose El Distorto. Yes, I know I already picked an instrumental for last week's MP3, but this is my site, and I can do that. As you can probably tell I've been in the mood for instrumentals lately, and Everclear seems to do a great job of making them. I only wish they would make more, because five just isn't enough, especially when only three of them are originals (El Distorto De Melodica, Halloween Americana, and Pacific Wonderland), Slow Motion Genius is just a slow tempo-ed version of the music from Your Genius Hands, and Walk Don't Run is a cover. Anyways, the version I choose was recorded 07/24/99 on day two of Woodstock '99.

Pacific Wonderland

Well I'm about to head out the door to start my holiday, just wanted to make sure I posted my MP3 of the Whenever before I left. I also wanted to wish Everyone a happy Thanksgiving! So, for this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I chose a favorite of mine (and also a favorite of a friend), the instrumental Pacific Wonderland. While, it may not have an album cover designed after it, or been nominated for a grammy, it still a damn fine instrumental. This particular version was recorded at The Wetlands, in New York City, NY on August 23, 1995. Enjoy.

I had a request for an live Easy Hoes song I could put up, so for this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I picked Chicken. This live version of Chicken was recorded sometime around 1989 in at a show the band did in New York City. No one seems to know the exact date or location of the concert at this time. Fpr those of you curious, Kim Rohrbach, from the Easy Hoes, is the other person singing.

Trust Fund

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I again went with a special request, this time for Trust Fund. This version was recorded in April of 1993 at Satyricon in Portland, Or. back when Scott Cuthbert was still the band's drummer. Enjoy.

Sick and Tired

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I went with a special request for Sick and Tired. This version was recorded in April of 1993 at Satyricon in Portland, Or. back when Scott Cuthbert was still the band's drummer. Enjoy.
For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I decided to go with a live cover of Iggy Pop & The Stooges' song No Fun. Everclear generally played No Fun at the majority of their early shows, and I beleive they continued performing the song up until some time in 1995. This particular version was recorded at the X-Ray Cafe in Portland, OR back on September 19, 1993. Again this is an early Everclear show with Scott Cuthbert providing the drums. Enjoy

For this week's MP3 I decided to go with one of my favorite Everclear songs from World of Noise. Evergleam is a great song, not only musically but in that it talks about issues we in society are too afraid to talk about. That's right, the "not so easy chair"...OK, seriously, does anyone have an idea what Art is talking about with this chair in the song? Who knows, but it's still a great song. This version was recorded in April of 1993 at Satyricon in Portland, Or. back when Scott Cuthbert was still the band's drummer. Enjoy.

Lame

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I picked a live performance of Lame. I've always liked this song, and I can't wait to hear Everclear re-record this song. Everclear re-recorded it in late 1996/early 1997 as part of the Pure White Evil album, but the track was among the many songs dropped when the album changed to So Much For The Afterglow. They, obviously, have not yet released the new recording of Lame. Listening to the song reminds you, or at least it does with me, how powerful of a word lame really is. Not the slang lame, but the true meaning of the word that Art speaks of in the song. The song features great story telling by Art, as well as some great drums (originally written by Everclear's former drummer Scott Cuthbert). This version was recorded on June 23, 1995 at La Luna in Portland, OR. Enjoy
For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I choose a live Easy Hoes performance of Eleanor Young. A few weeks earlier I posted a live Colorfinger version of Eleanor Young, which you can find in the MP3 Archives. No one seems to know the exact date that this song was recorded, other then it was sometime around 1989 and recorded in at a show the band did in New York City. I hope you all enjoy
This week's MP3 of the Whenever I am posting a live version of Connection. I was talking to an Everclear fan who, like me, happens to also love The Rolling Stones. She had heard Everclear album cover of Connection and the Shakin' Brave cover of Dead Flowers (my favorite Stones song). So I decided to post this live version of Connection. This song was performed at the Satyricon in Portland, OR back in April of 1993. Enjoy
This week's MP3 of the Whenever I am posting a live version of American Girl. This was a request from a fan who has only heard Everclear cover this song performed acousticly, and wanted to hear it with electric guitars. This recording is from Toronto Canada at the Opera House on 02/14/1996. Enjoy.

Drunk Again

or this week's MP3 of the Whenever I selected a live version of Drunk Again, after a close vote at the Hollywood and Vine's Everclear message board. This song was record live at the Satyricon in April of 1993. This was before the band had signed with Tim/Kerr records, back when Scott Cuthbert was the band's drummer. There has always been a lot of talk about this b-side. The song became infamous after Art said it was his least favorite Everclear song. Well as word of this fact spread it became "Art hates the song Drunk Again". Trust me folks, a perfectionist like Art would not release a song he hates. At the time the question was asked (around 1994-1995) the song was Art's least favorite, but that doesn't mean he hates it...after all this is a song he and the band wrote. If they thought it was bad they wouldn't have put it out, let alone play it live. Enjoy.
