Static

This week's MP3 of the Whenever brings an end of the live Colorfinger KZSU show. What better way to go out with the adrenaline rush of a song that is Static? Not only is it a cool song, but Art used the word unencombered in it...something he brags about to this day. It was originally recorded during a live set and interview performed on the Stanford, CA radio station KZSU 90.1, on 09/23/91..blah blah blah. As you all know by know Static is without a doubt my favorite song by Art that didn't become an Everclear song...maybe one day Art and Co. will get around to recording this one. Keep your fingers crossed for me on that one and, as always, enjoy!

Oh yeah, a lot of people have been asking so here is the way the set was performed on KZSU.

Also to let everyone know, I did remove a lot of conversation from the before and after the songs...so if you want the COMPLETE show, talk to your friendly neighborhood (or at least internet) Everclear trader. Ask around on Mailing list like Downtime, or message boards like Hollywood & Vine or Everclearonline.

Kill The Sun

Well the live Colorfinger MP3s are almost to an end for now. After this, I have one more live Colorfinger MP3 to put up and a few more live Easy Hoes songs, then it's back to live Everclear.For this week's MP3 (not like it's a bad thing though). Anyways, for this week, I chose Kill the Sun. It was originally recorded during a live set and interview performed on the Stanford, CA radio station KZSU 90.1, on 09/23/91. Enjoy.

Eleanor Young

I just wanted to say sorry for the lack of updates, I went on vacation and have been very busy since getting back. In fact I'm still pretty busy, but I wanted to take the time out to update my site. So for this week's MP3 of the Whenever I chose a live Colorfinger performance of Eleanor Young. It was originally recorded during a live set and interview performed on the Stanford, CA radio station KZSU 90.1, on 09/23/91. I hope you enjoy it.

The Comearound

A while back, I posted an acoustic version of The Comearound. Well, the song got a lot of feedback, so for this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I chose a live performance of the song by the Easy Hoes. This song was recorded during a live show the band did some time in 1989. I hope everyone enjoys it.

I Fall To Pieces

What can I say, I've always loved Colorfinger's treatment of the Patsy Cline classic. I'm not sure if it's just because it's such an obscure choice of a song to cover it, or the way they covered it. Either way I enjoy the song nonetheless, that's why I chose a live performance of it as this week's MP3 of the Whenever. It was originally recorded during a live set and interview performed on the Stanford, CA radio station KZSU 90.1, on 09/23/91. Enjoy

Corduroy

Doing something a tad bit different for me I'm including this extra MP3. This is a live version of the Robbie Gennet song Corduroy. As most of you know Robbie recently toured with the band as the keyboardist and supplemental guitarist. Robbie is a genuinely nice guy and a very talented musician. This MP3 was taken from a real audio stream of a concert Robbie performed on 09/28/00. You can hear the whole show, thanks to Where2groove.com here. Be sure to also check out Robbie's website Pianarchy. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did

Carolea

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, with a little help from Kevin, I chose the Colorfinger song Carolea. This live version was recorded during a live set and interview performed on the Stanford, CA radio station KZSU 90.1, on 09/23/91. I have to say when I first got my copy of Deep In The Heart Of The Beast In The Sun, Carolea was my favorite song. I think that's because Art did such a good job of telling the listeners the story of Carolea and her decent into the world of drugs and prostitution. Such a dark subject with such an upbeat melody...something that Art seems to have mastered. While Carolea may not still be my favorite track from Deep In The Heart Of The Beast In The Sun, I still enjoy the song. I hope you enjoy it too.

Heartspark Dollarsign

For this weeks' MP3 of the Whenever I chose a live Colorfinger performance of Heartspark Dollarsign. Although now the song seems a staple of Art's musical collection, the song was fairly new at the time of it's performance (excluding Art's Shakin' Brave version of Heartspark Dollarsign which featured slighty different music and entirely differnet lyrics). This version was recorded during a live set and interview performed on the Stanford, CA radio station KZSU 90.1, on 09/23/91.

As soon as this MP3 is posted, I am headed out the door to see Everclear tomorrow (07/25/01) in Austin. I can't wait to see the boys in their own headlining show...it's been too long. In fact the last time I saw Everclear as the headlining act was July 31, 1999 in Austin (I saw them again in Dallas at KDGE's Edgefest 2000, and in Houston opening for Matchbox 20 this year). Anyways, that Austin show was definitely NOT the best Everclear show I've ever been too...I'm sure many of you know a little about the incident in Austin that I was a witness to. Anyways, I'm really excited about the show, and I hope that nothing happens at the show to ruin it for me. Later!

The Last Goodbye

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I picked a live version of the Easy Hoes song The Last Good Bye. 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 really like The Last Goodbye, I think it's a really good Easy Hoes song and I hope you enjoy it too.

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I chose one of Art's most biographical songs, 13 Years. The song deals with Art's past drug and alcohol addictions and a rather sobering experience he had, in which he awoke passed out on his brother's grave. It was only later that he figured out that the day he passed out on George's grave was 13 years to the day that George had died of an overdose. Aside from singing about the experience, Art also wrote an article for Details magazine called Under The Influence, which you can read in the articles section of Halloween Americana. This MP3 was recorded during a live set and interview performed on the Stanford, CA radio station KZSU 90.1, on 09/23/91. I hope everyone enjoys it.

The Apartment Song

Once again I have a very rare treat for the MP3 of the Whenever. I've selected a live Colorfinger cover of the Tom Petty's The Apartment Song. Tom Petty originally released this song on his solo Full Moon Fever album in 1989. It was recorded by Colorfinger during a live set and interview performed on the Stanford, CA radio station KZSU 90.1, on 09/23/91, making the song no more than 2 years old when Art, and the rest of Colorfinger decided to cover it. The song seems to have stayed a favorite of Art's to cover live. Some of you may remember that Art played this often on his spring 1997 solo tour. You should check out Art's live and acoustic cover of The Apartment Song at Whitelightning.org in their Song of the Moment section. Remember, no one is safe from Colorfinger! Enjoy.

Anita Sonic Love

It's time for another live Colorfigner MP3, for the MP3 of the Whenever. For this week I picked a live version of Anita Sonic Love, a song for Art's first wife Anita (which he wrote while they were still married). As with the rest of the live Colorfinger songs I've been posting recently, this song was recorded on 09/23/91 during a live set and interview performed at the Stanford, CA, radio station KZSU 90.1. I've always loved Anita Sonic Love (as I do most of Art's work), but the best part of this song, in my opinion, is the break down towards the end of the song ("I wake from the drugs and the fear..."). I think that part in particular features some really powerful lyrics. Oh yeah, you'll also get to hear Art tune his guitar in this MP3...oh boy! I hope everyone enjoys this song as much as I do.

Sin City

Taking a break from the non-Everclear MP3s, I decided to fill a special request. So, Kelli, here is your requested MP3. A live performance of Craig singing Sin City. The band has been playing this AC/DC cover as a closing song for almost five years. However they decided to retire it from their shows this year when they learned that The Offspring would be using it in there setlist. This particular version was recorded on March 5, 1996 at Paradiso in Amsterdam, Holland...and is one of the most intense and rocking performances I've heard Craig do. Enjoy.

How about some acoustic Shakin' Brave for this week's MP3 of the Whenever? I decided to post a great Shakin' Brave song called The Comearound. It's just Art and his acoustic guitar on this song. This song was recorded around 1987, and comes from the same recording session as the Shakin' Brave version of Static, which can be found on this page near the very bottom. I hope everyone enjoys
For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I decided to use a live Easy Hoes track to change up the monotony of all the live Colorfinger I've been posting. I picked the song Separation, which many of you know as a track on Colorfinger's Deep In The Heart of The Sun album. Well before Separation was a Colorfinger song, Art first performed it with Easy Hoes. This particular version was recorded circa 1989 at a live Easy Hoes show. No one seems to know the exact date of the show...sorry. Enjoy the song.

Dog

Even before Art testified before Congress on deadbeat parents on behalf of the ACES organization, he was politically active. With that said, I don't think there is a more politically charged song written by Art than the song Dog. Originally written during his Shakin' Brave days, this particular Colorfinger version of Dog was recorded on 09/23/91 during a live set and interview performed at the Stanford, CA, radio station KZSU 90.1. Enjoy.

I've recently had a few request for a live MP3 of The Twistinside. So for this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I chose a live performance of The Twistinside by Colorfinger. This is one of the first performances of the song, and it came from the 09/23/91 live set and interview Colorfinger performed at the Stanford, CA, radio station KZSU 90.1. I hope every one enjoys this, as I know the song is a an favorite of sorts (and one of my personal favorites).

I was having a lot of trouble deciding on what song to use as my next MP3 of the Whenever, that is until Brett from the Everclear mailing list, Downtime, told me that his band was going to cover the John Denver classic, Rocky Mountain High. So for this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I've chosen a live performance of Rocky Mountain High by Colorfinger. While Colorfinger's cover is much cooler and more rocking than the original, Denver's version is, without argument, a staple of the classic American singer/songwriter tradition. This particular version was recorded on 09/23/91, from a live set and interview Colorfinger performed at the Stanford, CA radio station KZSU 90.1. You can also find Colorfinger's studio version of Rocky Mountain High towards the bottom of this page. Enjoy.

I know all of you are sick of those live Colorfinger MP3s I've been posting, so I'm giving you a break. I thought I'd post a live Easy Hoes for a change of pace. For the first live Easy Hoes song I have to post, I chose Static. Static is probably my favorite song written by Art that hasn't been recorded by Everclear. This is the third version of Static I've posted on my site, the others being a slow acoustic version by Shakin' Brave, and Colorfinger's album version of the song. You'll find both further down the page. This particular version was recorded circa 1989 at a live Easy Hoes show. I'll try to track down the exact dates for you guys, so check back soon for more info.

OK, I've been driving this "rare treat for the MP3 of the Whenever" thing into the ground lately...but seriously, these live Colorfinger (as well as most of the MP3s I post here) are rare MP3s your not going to find anywhere else. With that said, for this week's MP3 I picked a live Colorfinger performance of Marryin' Kind. Many of you may not have known this, but Marryin' Kind was the first song Art wrote. This particular version of the song was recorded on 09/23/91, from a live set and interview Colorfinger performed at the Stanford, CA radio station KZSU 90.1. So get ready for some "serious, professional rock n' roll".
Once again I have a very rare treat for the MP3 of the Whenever. I've selected a live Colorfinger cover of the Neil Young song Harvest. This Neil Young song is a favorite of mine and apparently of Art's too. Some of you may remember Art opened most of his solo show in the spring of 1997 with Harvest. In fact, you should check out Art's live and acoustic cover of Harvest at Whitelightning.org in their Song of the Moment section. With that said it's time to get back to my MP3 of the Whenever. It was recorded from a live set and interview Colorfinger performed on the Stanford, CA radio station KZSU 90.1, on 09/23/91.
You're in for a VERY rare treat with this week's MP3 of the Whenever. I've selected a live performance of the Colorfinger song Break The World, which was later renamed Invisible once it became an Everclear song. This particular version was recorded from a live set and interview Colorfinger performed on the Stanford, CA radio station KZSU 90.1, way back on 09/23/91. This is the second live Colorfinger performance I've posted (the first being Culver Palms (or Why I Don't Believe In God) live and acoustic on KUSF), and without letting the cat out of the bag it's not the last live Colorfinger performance that I will be posting over the next few months. I hope Everyone enjoys.

I just saw Everclear on the 11th. It's been about a year since I saw them last, and I was definitely needing to see them live. It was also Everclear's first time back Houston since February of 1998, which brings me to a rant. I know a lot of people complain that Everclear never or hardly ever comes to their city...but Houston is the 4th largest city in the country! Los Angeles, New York City, and Chicago aren't looked over, but some how Houston is. Dallas, and Austin aren't looked over so it's not a Texas thing...so what gives?

Oh well, enough complaining, at least I got to see them again. I got autographs on my Deep In The Heart Of The Beast In The Sun, A Benefit For: Sisters Of The Road Cafe Compilation, and Nervous & Weird EP. OK now back on topic, in a round about way. Looking at my freshly autographed Nervous & Weird EP, I decided to pick Nervous & Weird as my MP3 of the Whenever. This live performance was recorded on March 05, 1996 at Paradiso in Amsterdam, Holland. Enjoy, and sorry about the ranting.

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I decided to go with a live performance of Fire Maple Song. This particular version was recorded on March 05, 1996 at Paradiso in Amsterdam, Holland. I've always enjoyed Fire Maple Song, and I know its a fan favorite with all of you. So I picked one of my favorite performances of the song.

Sparkle

For the MP3 of the Whenever, I picked an Art solo version of Sparkle. This performance was recorded on April 13, 1997 at McCabe's in Santa Monica, California during Art's afternoon performance (he played two shows that day). I've always loved the song Sparkle, so I just thought I'd post some version of it, simple as that. Enjoy!

Amphetamine

Well, today is the last day of my spring break. I actually uploaded this song before I left school over a week ago, but I've been short on time to update my site...and kind of forgot to put this up sooner. 56 hours of work in 9 days...not a great break, but the money is nice. Anyways enough of my ranting, let me get to the point at hand, the MP3 of the Whenever. For this week's song, I chose a live performance of the fan favorite Amphetamine. This version was recorded live on December 10, 1997 at Mercer Arena in Seattle, WA. Although it was originally aired over KNND, and I really don't like to use radio broadcast, this version is probably one of the better live performances of the song I've heard. Enjoy.

Nehalem

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I picked a live performance of Nehalem. This version was recorded at the Opera House in Toronto, Canada on February 14, 1996.

After choosing the MP3 and listening to the song, it got me thinking about the late Brent Fusco. For those of you who didn't know Brent, he was the founder of the first Everclear website Nehalem (which became Everclear's officially endorsed website shortly after opening), and the Everclear mailing list White Lightning. He was in every sense, the definition of an Everclear fan; informative, helpful, and passionate about the band we all love. Not only was Nehalem the name of Brent's site, but it was also his special way of saying goodbye at the bottom of his e-mails. Brent passed away in early October of 1996. Everclear dedicated their album So Much For The Afterglow to his memory. Nehalem Brent, you are missed.

Malevolent

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I did something I've never done before, I took a song from an officially released Everclear CD. I choose the live version of the World of Noise song, Malevolent off the (very) out of print A Benefit For: Sisters Of The Road Cafe compilation. The CD also features Everclear's cover of The Steve Miller Band's The Joker (which you should have no trouble finding an MP3 of). For one reason or another, even though MP3's of Everclear's The Joker are easily available this live version of Malevolent is hard to track down. In addition to the CD, from which this song appears, being out of print, the band rarely performed this song, making this MP3 a treat for all of you.

Everything to Everyone

Recently, Whitelightning.org posted a live version of Everything to Everyone as their Song of the Moment. Their version was recorded at MTV's Sports and Music festival in 10/18/97, and featured a guitar intro to the song. So for my MP3 of the Whenever, I decided to do a compare and contrast of sorts, giving you a keyboard intro version of Everything to Everyone. The version I choose was recorded 07/24/99 on day two of Woodstock '99. Hope everyone enjoys and checks out both versions of the song.

Electra Made Me Blind

This week's MP3 of the Whenever went through a stringent selection process (Thanks Kay). The final choice was a live version of Electra Made Me Blind. This energetic version of Electra was recorded on September 14, 1995, at the Ventura Theater in Ventura, CA way back in the days when the number of musicians on stage was limited to three. Hope everyone enjoys it.

Overwhelming

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I choose Art's debut of Overwhelming. This song has been a favorite mine since I first heard. This solo version version is a live, acoustic was performed for the first time publically on Modern Rock Live in 1998. In case you are wondering this version was before Art had the throat surgery for his nodes. Enjoy.

One of the first MP3s I posted after revamping H&H was the original version of Static (you can find it near the bottom of the page) performed by Shakin' Brave. Since then I've had a lot of request to hear Colorfinger's faster, heavier version of the song. I had assumed that the majority of my visitor already had an MP3 of most of Colorfinger's Deep In The Heart Of The Beast In The Sun album, but it would appear not. So for the MP3 of the Whenever I've posted Colorfinger's Static. Enjoy.

Dead Flowers

For this week's MP3 of the Whenever I chose Shakin Brave's cover for The Rolling Stones Dead Flowers. This is a great cover of a great song...that's all I'm going to say. Hope everyone has a happy holiday season...see you next year.
For the MP3 of the Whenever, I'm posting a live version of AM Radio. When Learning How To Smile came out, many people have wondered what AM Radio, a song that relies heavily on samples, would sound live. Everclear has surprised many with how well they can perform the song in concert. This particular version was performed on Everclear's visit to the weekly radio program Rockline, will the original quality of the recording isn't that great, the band's performance is. Enjoy.

Your Genius Hands

For this week's MP3, I chose a live version of Your Genius Hands. The album version of Your Genius Hands starts of the World of Noise, and I believe it helps in setting the mood for the whole album, it is also easily on my top songs from the album. This particular version of Your Genius Hands was recorded at the Opera House in Toronto, Canada on February 14, 1996. The song's performance is blisteringly energetic, and very rocking...to say the least. Hope you enjoy.

Heartspark Dollarsign

Heartspark Dollarsign has always been a popular Everclear song, so for this week's MP3 of the Whenever, I am bringing you Shakin' Brave's original version of the song. The Shakin' Brave version was recorded circa 1987, and features only a young Art and an acoustic guitar. You'll also notice a much slower tempo and very few lyrical similarities between this, the original version of Heartspark Dollarsign, and Everclear's version of Heartspark Dollarsign. Enjoy.

I can sum up this weeks MP3 of the Whenever with a quote from Art on the song "Before Everclear, this band Colorfinger recorded a version of 'Rocky Mountain High' that was pretty rockin' and pretty fun. It was a big encore for the band when we would play it and a big deal." There you have it...Art himself says that this cover of the John Dever classic is rockin' and fun, what more could you want? Hope everyone enjoys.

1975

This week's MP3 of the Whenever is from the same 1993 demo as The Twistinside demo and Deep In, Empty Out, came from. This version of 1975 is has a slightly slower tempo, with much clearer lyrics. Personally I like this demo version more than the publically released version, that was first introduced in 1994 on the Fire Maple Song EP. Well, as usual, I hope you enjoy.

Trust Fund

Everclear's Trust Fund, off World of Noise, has never been one of my Everclear favorite songs. It's not that I dislike the song by any means, it's just that I've always felt the song was missing something. It wasn't until I heard Colorfinger's version of Trust Fund, this week's MP3 of the Whenever, that I really started to love the song. The Colorfinger version has a bit of a groove to it and is more catchy, while still managing to retain all the agnst. For those of you who have always loved Everclear's Trustfund, I'm sure you will be impressed with Colorfinger's original treatment of the song...and for those of you, like me, who felt the song was a bit lacking get ready for a treat! I hope you enjoy.

The Twistinside

This week's MP3 of the Whenever is the 1993 demo version of The Twistinside, which comes from the same demo tape as Deep In, Empty Out is found on. Without a doubt, The Twistinside has always been of one of my favorite Everclear songs. While Art originally recorded The Twistinside in his pre-Everclear days, he didn't add that hard guitar song that really makes the song (in my opinion) until he was with Everclear. There are a few differences between the 1993 demo version, and the 1995 Sparkle & Fade version of The Twistinside. Listen for a little more lead guitar work during the first part of the song, and during the more istrumental second part of the song, the vocals are completely different. Enjoy

You Make Me Feel Like A Whore

Recently on the Everclear mailing list Downtime, we talked about the beginning of You Make Me Feel Like A Whore and how Art yells "Take A Walk With Buddy!" as part of an inside joke the band has about their drummer Greg "Buddy" Eklund. A fellow list member (hello Brian) requested that I reposted a live version of the song where you can clearly hear Art say it, so here it is. Originally posted the MP3 on H&H on 11/19/99, this particular version was recorded on 09/14/95 in Ventura, CA at the Ventura Theater.

This week's MP3 of the Whenever is the original version of Static by Shakin' Brave. Static has always been one of my favorite Colorfinger songs, and Shakin' Brave's Static only adds a new edge to a great song. For those of you familiar with Colorfinger's fast paced, guitar heavy, punk influenced version of Static, be prepared to for a change. For those of you unfimiliar with the song, you'll get a rare chance for you to hear a young Art (circa 1987) and his acoustic guitar. Enjoy.

Deep In, Empty Out

To celebrate the return of Hungry & Hollow. The first MP3 of the Whenever is the ultra rare unreleased Everclear song. This rare track was recorded by Art, Craig, and Scott back in 1993. It was taken from a demo tape Everclear sent out to record companies, while trying to get signed. Enjoy it.

Culver Palms (or Why I Don't Believe In God)

You're in for quite a treat with this MP3. This is a live acoustic recorded from the San Francisco radio station KUSF. Colorfinger appeared on the station to promote concert appearances, and the upcoming release of their soon to be released CD, Deep In The Heart of The Beast In The Sun.
