i still hate i'm shipping up to boston

but otherwise, i agree

Yes. Yes. Yes. I'm more and more convinced they need to do a studio version of "Fairytale of New York."

holy shit, yes. they really do. i think mislabeled that live one i sent you, by the way. if you're a super-nerd about that kind of thing, i'll check when i get home on what the actual date was...actually, if it was from the werchert, belgium festival it might be labeled correctly. i can't remember off the top of my head.

Don't worry about the date... it's a non-issue. I rather like the new arrangement of "Shipping"

Wow, how weird is it that Blackout came out 2 years ago? I remember DKM, Radiohead, and Grandaddy all released albums on that same day. Freaking insane that that was 2 years ago, I completely remember that day!

i just got back from the umass spring concert (for some reason, dkm played last...half the place cleared out after nas finished his set), and they played a bunch of new songs. sounded really good.

they opened with "your spirit's alive" which was pretty rad. they also did "citizen CIA", "the auld triangle", "sunshine highway", "the warrior's code". sounded damn good to me.



and i'm glad i never actually made that bet with anyone that they wouldn't end with skinhead. i was ready to put money on it, that they wouldn't play it in a PC-as-fuck town like amherst (i bet someone tomorrow will be screaming "oooooh!!!! they said skinhead!!!!!!! they're nazis!!!!!" ).

they did blood and whiskey, vengence, it's a long way to the top, which side are you on, barroom hero (i wasn't pulled up on stage to sing it, but al barr did come down to the baracade to let me finish it when the guy who did get to sing it fucked up. he was going to pick me, but ken casey picked the other dude, and i wish i could have heard better cos he said something like "this kid has a ducky boys shirt on!! that's what i'm talking about!" )...

uh....what else did they do. rocky road to dublin, heroes of our past, fields of athenry, spicy jig, boys on the docks, tessie, walk away (which i still hate)...and probably a song or two i'm forgetting.


it was lame when they did the spicy jig, the girls didn't know to go up on stage...and no one knew to rush the stage for skinhead (which is how i managed to get up there easier than ever and sing with al)....funny shit.

so 'lemon, what do you think of "sunshine highway" as the lead single?

better than "walk away" the way i see it.

maybe it's not the lead single...i was under the impression it was. but the auld triangle is the song epitaph put up on the site. hmmm.

CAPTAIN KELLY'S KITCHEN (COURTIN' IN THE KITCHEN)
(Traditional, arrangement by Dropkick Murphys)

Come single guy and gal unto me pay attention
Don't ever fall in love
It's the devil's own invention
For once he fell in love with a maiden so bewitching
Miss Henrietta Bell down in Captain Kelly's kitchen

CHORUS:
With me toora loora la, me toora loora laddie
Me toora loora la and me toora loora laddie

At the age of seventeen I apprenticed to a grocer
Not far from Stephen's Green
Where Miss Henri' used to go sir
Her manners were sublime she set my heart a-twitchin'
When she invited me to a party in the kitchen

CHORUS

Sunday was the day that they were to have their flare-up
He dressed himself quite gay
I frizzed and oiled my hair up
The Captain had no wife and he had gone a-fishin'
She groped me on the stairs beneath the old man's kitchen

CHORUS

Her arms around my waist she slyly hinted marriage
When to the door in haste came Captain Kelly's carriage
Her eyes were full of hate and poison she was spittin'
The Captain kicked the door in and stormed into the kitchen

CHORUS

When the Captain came downstairs he saw my situation
In spite of all his prayers he was marched off to the station
For him they'd take no bail
To get home I was itchin'
He had to tell the tale how I came into the kitchen

CHORUS

I said she did invite me
But she gave flat denial
For assault she did indict me and I was sent for trial
She swore he'd robbed her house
In spite of all her screechin'
I got six months hard
For his courtin' in the kitchen

CHORUS

I think a DKM cover version of "The Reason" by Hoobastank would be a better lead single than 'Walk Away' was. Why do I hate that song so badly? I dont know, but I do.

Looking forward to hearing some of these new songs you speak of. Glad they have a new album coming out Maybe the Bouncing Souls will follow suit and put something new out also.

I have to admit, I havent been in the mood for punk music for the most part lately. I am looking forward to DKM and AFI's new albums though, hopefully they'll get me back into it all.

i agree with a "the reason" cover, and i loathe anything related to hoobastank with every bone in my body. i've thought that maybe seeing dkm do the song live would change that, but really it's just added to the hate.


new afi?


yes, we need a new souls album ASAP. what the hell are those guys up to?

It's okay. I've managed to somehow work it into like every post, so I guess I'm still trying to get my head around it on some level, but other than that, it's okay. I actually don't know if the lyrics in the verses are positive at all, but the chorus is quite happy.

you couldn't have worked it into EVERY post...i swear i've read some recent posts of yours and this was the first i'd heard


beats me what the lyrics are, actually. and apparently i've listened to it 8 times since loading it into itunes yet i know all the words to "wicked sensitive crew"!


i just read some funny shit on punknews.org about dkm, and the talk of bruisers reunion shows.

someone said this (normally i'd assume not seriously, but someone on this board once said something about a picture of dkm that used to inhabit my sig that makes me worried they're serious) about al barr:
Quote:
Their singer isn't even moderately attractive.
The guys look like they belong on Victory Records.
Blah.
that site is hilarious.
