quote:Call It whatever you like - stoner rock, desert rock, doom rock, just plain old rock and you come up with the best rock and roll created by the best bands currently busting their ass to bring you their sounds. This music is a blend of the best of 70's rock and roll with modern experimental riffs and beats. This is what makes 'stoner/doom rock' the best underground music scene since the 'Seattle' scene hit.

.quote:"extremely longwinded. i'm sure there's more, but i try not to think about the past, and only work in the future stuff..
ok, so i booked sunn and boris, of which i wanted boris, and sunn i never really got into, which is ok, i figured someone would at least like it. sunn wanted to play last for some unknown reason (in hindsight, i think that was good, as they are probably the best room clearers in the business). so anyways, after much haggling with their agent, of whom was worried about parking and that other stuff for some reason (i told her we knew what we were doing, and could accomodate).
so anyways they get into town at maybe 6 or 7 pm, go their hotel rooms (of which i paid for), and call me to ask about when their set was, which i specified. they showed up during weedeater's set, and loaded in. we had to move some stuff around on stage to accomodate, of which we did. i didn't speak with boris at all (i don't believe any of them spoke english),the only people from the sunn i dealt with were: randall (sound), mark deutrom (bass (from melvins..)), greg anderson (of which i really didn't talk to..), and Steve O' Malley, and angela means (agent).
so, i had warned sunn that we had hurried up and run ahead of schedule so we could fit full sets in for boris/sunn. we got everything set up, and got boris up with time for full sets from both. boris played their alotted 60 minutes.
sunn screwed around for quite some time, and 3 members of the band (mark, greg, and steve) specified no vocal mic. so before we start, randall says, where's the vocal mic, i specifed that the band told me not to have one on stage, he said "don't listen to the band" so i procured a vocal mic, and had to find a line to put it on, in all the fog...(of course they never used the vocal mic, it seemed i was being played.). by the time sunn was up, i told them they had 45 minutes. they seemed to disregard this (as some bands seem to do...) - so when there's about 10 minutes left, i warn the sound guy that they have to be done, he says "i think they're aware of that, they're really cooking through the set, they're on song 4 already" to which i reply, "hmm, i thought they were on song 2", yes i made a joke. whatever. anyways, after their set, i immediately paid them, and shook both steven o'malley's , and greg anderson's hand, and said thanks. while i'm shaking steven o'malley's hand, he asks what i thought, and i told him "it's not my cup of tea" (usually i am quite a bit more blunt, but hell, i figured it was all over, and i was happy. anyways, steve o'malley upon responmse to my coment decides to be tough guy and keeps ahold of my hand and kind gives it a squeeze, like you know? whatever, i thought that was funny, like this dudes tough or something. whatever. so they start loading gear out after everyone is gone, and steven o'malley throws a monitor (yes one of the big monitors from stage), i don't know why he did it, but it looked to me like a random act of vandalism. i asked him why he did it, asked him what kind of person would do such a thing, and proceeded to speak my mind (yes there were other band members there that witnessed this whole thing..). i told him i thought he was an asshole, retarded, and that he surely understood gear was expensive. he still said nothing, like whatever, it's not my gear getting damaged. i told him to load his shit out and get out. i was pissed and felt like damaging some of their shit out of spite, which i did not, because i'm not like that. anyways, another member of band tries to smooth it over, saying "he's a drunk, and blacks out, it's not his fault, we've been dealing with this the whole tour" i said i don't give a fuck if he's a drunk, that's no fucking excuse. this whole time steven had scurried away knowing full well that if he continued to attempt to talk with me i would most likely beat him to death. now i'm a nice guy, and rarely do anything violent unless it needs to be done, i do own a bar for christsake, and have done my share of ejecting/damaging people that had earned it, and actually if i do say so myself i am quite good at it. anyways, the whole band treats me like an asshole for something they did, and proceeded to act like rockstars, asking people to help them load out, and then yelling at the loaders (both loaders told them to fuck off after they got yelled at, and refused to move any more of thier shit). their agent then tries to smooth things over, by avoiding the subject, and saying all kinds a things about how great the band is and etc., but she also said "they're my boys, and i need to protect them" whatever. she also made the mc5 comment, which was hilarious, i could not believe someone was that delusional. she also commented on how they did 800 people in chicago, and sold out the wexner (which they did not, only a small portion of it, apparently it resizes for shows (like 9:30 club does..). dixie dave went over and spoke with them, he said he asked them "what did you do to piss off the nicest guy i know". i don't think he got any response. i have talked to some other people that spoke with them, and they said they had attitudes and whatever, even at other shows.
i paid them in full, even with meal buyouts, gave them 6 bottles of wine, and was accomodating.
so here's the sunn/boris tally
6 double rooms
6 bottles of wine
$3000.00 + $120.00 meal buyouts
1 quiet room for baby to stay while boris plays
(they also stole several bottles of champagne out of my rerigerator when they were changing..i hope they didn't take anything else, it's hard to tell..)
i hope to god boris gets at least half the money (i don't know how they split it up)
yes, once again i learned my lessons.
a: assholes have no respect for other peoples shit.
b: sunn0))) are assholes
c: never believe the hype
d: steve o'malley is a cocksucker
e: i can't really judge the rest of the band/crew, but they offered no apologies, so i can only assume this is par for the course, or they're assholes.
f: one asshole in a band makes the entire band assholes, bands function as one, not as indivduals. most bands know this.
g: sunn0))) is boring as fuck live, and are not really very loud. and the guitar tone is not that great. and it's not music, it might be art, but not very good art. we've all seen better performance art at the local coffee shop, sunn is just living off of reputation and a buncha cash into amps/cabinets. i'm sure 99% of the people here could do something much better with the same resources.
anyways, i was in an excellent mood until they pulled all the rockstar shit. and hope everyone else had an enjoyable weekend, i know i did, and was really happy to see old friends, and meet new people.
i'm sure there' more but i can't remember..oh, and by the way today marks about 60 days of sobriety for me, which is definitely weird...not a single drop of alcohol, not bad if i do say so myself."
