Updates from hiatus

On this day in 2009 Tullycraft played at the Crocodile in Seattle. This was our last show in the northwest before our self imposed hiatus and it’s officially been two years since we’ve played in our home town. It was rumored at the time that the band was taking a break to allow Chris more time on his goat farm and Cori more time with his adult book store. (Here is Luke Burbank discussing said rumor on TBTL). Tullycraft is still officially on a break, but there have been rumblings about perhaps writing and recording new music. Stay tuned.

On this day…

On this day in 2003 Bunnygrunt recorded a song titled “Thugz Forevah” with St. Louis rapper Chingy. Initially, the song was intended to appear on the Bunnygrunt singles & rarities CD In The Valley Of Lonesome Phil, but the track was pulled from the project when Chingy signed with Ludacris’ Disturbing tha Peace record label. To this day, the song still remains unreleased.

Mp3 of the Day

On this day in 1987 Big Black and The U-Men performed at the Showbox in Seattle. I didn’t discover Big Black until after they had already broken up, but for a while there I was really into them. Sonic Youth, Joy Division, Big Black, and Billy Bragg were my favorites until I discovered Beat Happening. At which point, I found myself on an entirely new musical path that didn’t include many of my old favorites, except for maybe Billy Bragg. Occasionally I’ll hear a Big Black song on KEXP and it brings back fond memories. Today we have Heart Beat by Big Black. Happy Monday.

On this day…

On this day in 1963 the Beatles recorded their first album at Abbey Road Studios. They were all suffering from colds and John was losing his voice by the time they tracked “Twist and Shout.” George Martin was intent on capturing the band with a live vibe… the resulting tracks would be released in the U.S. as Introducing … The Beatles. Happy Friday!

On This Day…

On this day in 1968 The Kinks released their sixth studio album The Village Green Preservation Society. The album was assembled from songs written and recorded over the previous two years, and it was the last album by the original quartet. Bassist Pete Quaife quit the group in early 1969. Although it failed to chart after its release, the record is widely considered to be the most influential and important album by The Kinks.

On this day…

On this day in 1986, R.E. M. performed at the University Of Virginia with the band Let’s Active. During the song “Seven Chinese Brothers,” a guy in the audience jumped up on stage and tried to grab Peter Buck’s guitar. He was unsuccessful, but he managed to escape back into the crowd. Peter tore off his guitar and jumped in after him. Mike and Michael then yelled at the guy from the stage as Peter tried to find him. Mike Mills: “If anybody sees that guy, grab him and bring him backstage after the show.” Michael Stipe: “So the Republicans won in this state, huh?” After a few minutes, Peter made his way back on stage without the assailant and the crowd cheered. After he re-tuned his guitar, and the band started into the song “Femme Fatale.”
