LOL, its ok angel.

its a band called godspeed you black emperor, and they make cool music together. obviously, why else would i be interested in their side projects?

theyre a more intense version of our good friends Igor and Ross, without the singing and a bit more guitar.

quite prog, and their last album was also quite predictable too. their own mega fans agree.

so anyone here heard of fly pan am?

The Silver Mt. Zion is the other big Godspeed side project. I've listened to their album, Born into Trouble as the Sparks Fly Upwards, a few times as background music. It's not nearly as intense as your typical Godspeed album, but it's still very beautiful music. The Silver Mt. Zion use more strings and horns, whereas Godspeed will beat you to death with their screwdriver guitars and drums. There is even some singing on this album! The songs average around 7 minutes instead of 20, but that doesn't really matter on this album because one song flows into the next.

Has anyone else seen Godspeed live? I'm pumped about seeing them this Thursday.

I have heard Godspeed live and man I walked out of that concert numb. Man I have have never been so blown away by anything else in my life. They blew out all of my senses to the point wher I had nothing left despite the fact that the sound sucked in the place they were playing (some small theatre in Toronto two years ago this past fall, the Bloor street theatre I think). I definitely recommend hearing htem live. A friend of mine who;s into non-mainstram music got me into them and took me with him to the show. Sleep off of disc two of"lift yr. skiny fists like antennas to heaven" is one of my favourite peices of music ever with Storm off of disc one comes close. The peak of Sleep is like an epiphany very time. Glad some other people know who they are.

A Silver Mt Zion, not The Silver Mt Zion, so look under 'A' at the stores. Love the He Has Left Us... (some insanely long title) album, very very moving. (lyrics on the only sung song aren't good, though, I thought).
