chris used to play guitar in sloan. they recorded a bunch of songs that
eventually became peppermint, and then they went back and touched them up
before they were released. at this point chris had been kicked off of
guitar by patrick who knew more AC/DC riffs, so he got the job. when
they finished up the recrdings they ended up taping over or leaving out
most of chris' guitar work. but the whole recording of that record was
quite loose (andrew plays guitar on some stuff, blahblhablha). "erased
guitar" is a joke. funny. ha ha ha.
second - the swirlies are not playing with eric's trip in moncton ...
they opened, or were supposed to open, for et on some US dates. this
line-up is by all accounts a total crock, as the swirlies are by all
accounts a far better band who are more popular, more crtiically
acclaimed, more interesting, more innovative, more compelling and just
plain better looking than et. to see them opening for et would be an
embarrasment to both bands. (for proof, compare "purple blue" to "they
spent their wild youthful days in the glittering world of the salons."
actually there is no comparison.) you can find the latest swirlies
releases on taaaang! records at your nearest quality record outlet.
