Clearly it pays to be on the computer at twenty past midnight. Yeah Chris! Yeah Patrick! Yeah Mike! This series is hilarious.
Thanks for the daily update ;-) !!
Sweet. The song is very un-Sloanish.
They look they're enjoying themselves.
Both those boys are in their glories...;)
Wow. These are clearly better than what has been passed off as Sloan on YouTube recently ;) Awesome - can't wait for the new album AND more of the video shorts! :)
i'm getting excited about listening to the new album!!!<3 <3 <3 <3
Sloan should record a prequel to the Peppermint EP.
That's what I imagine Spent and Convulsion sounded like....
Long ago, in a Canadian Provence far far away...
wow, and you're SW fans too?
Un-Sloanish? Hmmm... I don't know if I agree with that, it seems this vein was displayed somewhat in the intro for "The Good in Everyone"... Just not exploited.
As for "prequel" to the Peppermint EP, I have a similar idea to propose: Ask the boys to record things they'd never think of releasing on a Sloan album, then have them put it on a Sloan EP. Though now that "radical" ideas such as "New Beat Generation" (aka "Hardcore") and "Golden Eyes" are finally making their way onto CD, this may prove difficult...
Maybe the other idea then, prequel to the Peppermint EP? Okay, here goes: "Guys, take what you've learnt in terms of songwriting and arrangement these past fifteen years, go back to your unfinished songs from pre-Peppermint and finish 'em up while retaining the raw power of those nuggets." In other words, I want 8-part harmonies (doubled for that sonic "gloss" effect) over spit-shined Les Paul and Rickenbacker-twinned guitar riffs (or maybe that Flying V guitar replacing the Rickenbacker) blaring through the grittiest Marshall stacks (Leslie'd in one channel, straight in the other), with "IIISSS THISSS LOUUUUD ENNNOUUUGH???" drums and Chris having absolute (yet well-presented) fun on the bass on verse 2, solo and the last quarter of the closing chorus (You know what I mean, Chris, inversions at just the right place, a bass octave leap here or there, locking into a swift, short 3/4 section with Andrew for about three quarters of four seconds or something, I know you know, you often do it just right).
Heck, if the time is there, we might be able to see this out before the B-sides/rarities project!
(Mike, could you print this out to give the boys a laugh? LOL)
Needs more drumstick twirling.
That is quite possibly my favorite song on the new album. I wish it could be a bit longer but it still rocks for 1:11. Chris how the hell do you drum so fast. Patrick use that guitar instead of the blue one with the flowers on it. See you guys in Buffalo 1/19/2007.
If you want to give me a shootout, I am Chris Eyeington.
