Five More From Summer ’95

Great Woods 7-1-95

Let’ start the week off with another dip into the primordial psychedelia of Summer ’95β€”the band’s most experimental tour ever.


Mike’s Song” 6.20 II, Cuyahoga Falls, OH

This menacing version descended upon Blossom, leaving many wide-eyed fans wondering what had just happened.



David Bowie” 6.15 II, Atlanta, GA

Another one of Summer ’95’s top-shelf “Bowies.”



Tweezer > Gumbo” 6.28 II, Wantagh, NY

Another multi-faceted and experimental monster, featuring “Dave’s Energy Guide” and a jam on The Breeder’s “Cannonball,” from the first night at Jones Beach.



Runaway Jim -> Β Makisupa” 7.2 II, Sugarbush, VT

A hard-edged and grinding jam eventually melts into “Makisupa” on the first night of Sugarbush’s summer-ending precursor to The Clifford Ball.



Split Open and Melt” 7.1 II, Mansfield, MA

A first set joyride into seething musical realms.

    Bad Brains slipped my mind. Wish their tour was a bit more extensive then what it is, Bonnaroo and east coast big cities. Living Colour, never really classified them as metal.

    Earlier this month I watched a special on Fishbone as part of Black History Month. The theremin is to blame for the dissintegration of the band (and maybe the og guitarist turning holy roller).

    Ever hear Hellyeah? They’re coming to town with Clutch in the Spring.

    @ Robert Champ, re: Twitter

    No Thanks!

  4. Guyute711 Says:

    Living Colour is about as metal as Poison.

  5. albert walker Says:

    I will not be following Robert Champ on twitter

    but all the musicians playing in the imaginary orchestra in my head sure as hell will be

    settle down. i didnt say Living Colour was metal, but they did play an above average style of rock. and in case i’m missing something, they were a pretty damn good band back in the day.

    nice call on Death @AW. i have one LP. only knew them because Richard Christy was the drummer in their final lineup. Richard is one of the cast members of the Howard Stern show, and is one of metals great drummers. he just happens to like getting his taint waxed on live radio a bit more.

    can someone hit me with the link to the page with the lotto info?

  8. albert walker Says:

    I know the metal band Death too tela

    but this is Death the punk band

    one album recently finally issued on Drag City. amazing detroit punk which like the MC5 sounds way ahead of it’s time.…For_the_Whole_World_to_See

    Not to be redundant, but super ball mound is a type 1 BEAST.

  10. albert walker Says:

    rumor is the album was never released at Columbia cuz Clive Davis told them they had to change their name from Death and they told him to fuck off

    Here DIF

  12. HarryHood Says:

    On Live Nation’s website page for Phish, under the “Fans Who Viewed These Tickets Also Viewed” section, Creed and Howie Day show up. Guyute must have been on there recently πŸ˜‰

  13. DryIceFactory Says:

    lol @voopa

  14. RoosterPizza Says:


    You around tonight?

  15. bhizzle Says:

    Tela’s – originally misread your post as saying they were metal. And yes I owned Vivid, Vernon Reid is a monster. Last I heard of him him and Logic were doing something and what I heard from it wasn’t bad. Not as heavy as I would’ve liked but….

    Thanks for the links aw…..the power of Alice Cooper…from R & B to 70’s punk…hahahaha…also thanks for that head’s up on Rocket Juice and the Moon from yesterday….can’t wait to hear the studio stuff.

  16. tela'smuff Says:

    oh! ok, nice. Drag City, one of my favorite labels. ok, more Death to seek out!! thx.

    we must really need dates, AW is giving punk/metal recs!!! love it.

  17. HarryHood Says:

    @ Rooster

    I’ve been around off and on this week, but I’ve been laying pretty low. My Gram is not doing well and is probably a matter of days/hours at this point.

  18. RoosterPizza Says:

    Sorry to hear about that. bummer… Give me a call when you are done work.

  19. bhizzle Says:

    no dates?

  20. Bwana Says:

    i’m thinking they are gonna wait until tomorrow to release the dates… it’s a leap year and all. maybe the theme will have something to do with that.

    ::hopes that they prove him wrong and release today::

  21. albert walker Says:

    def check out Death Tela’s

    it got pimped pretty hard when it was finally released a couple years back. it will floor you how ahead of it’s time it is.

  22. Guyute711 Says:

    Never heard of Howie Day and personally don’t have time for new artists as I am going on Hot Chelle Rae tour.

  23. Grooves Says:

    I saw that the tour page had the map with a balloon over TN…dates must be coming up post haste…

  24. HarryHood Says:

    Howie Day is right up your alley Guyute. He’s very similar to your other favorite artist, James Blunt.

  25. Guyute711 Says:

    You are digging deep to reveal artists I am not aware of. I think you have secret musical interests. πŸ™‚
