Three years in which a lot of water has passed under the metal galleys of time and the fans' requests for new songs have become more and more vociferous. First of all, the focus is on the EP's opener, "Crossing The Blades" , the official lyric video for which can be seen below. What's so special about this song is the fact that it's a harbinger of the next regular album, scheduled for release in summer, but will remain unique in its present incarnation.
The album will feature a different version, completely re-recorded and with a number of little changes. Best to Worst list Best to Worst list. About the Author. A lover of basketball, soccer and burgers. Here Are The Latest Articles.

We had two record stores in St. Record Warehouse—classic rock and pop music. And Music Land was in the mall—similar to Sam Goody—and you could order from them anything you wanted. There was a radio station in the college town of Marionville Missouri that we got in St.
When Sister by Sonic Youth came out, they played that one front to back. College rock. Husker Du. Some people had older brothers who knew about music. Something outrageous like the Butthole Surfers. We grab our coats and continue conversation in sub-freezing temps. Fuck Boston. Thanks for sticking it out, Chad. Jesse James got killed there, right? Segregated parts. Affluent parts. I still have a lot of friends there and I live in Kansas City now.
My parents still live in St. Chad: Kansas City all the time. Louis was farther away. But as soon as Jon got his license we were in Kansas City all the time. Chad: Better record stores. That was a big deal. It was nice to sneak off. Did you want to go to college? Keep bands going? I had my own band called Odd Face with friends of mine and we played for a couple years. That was three-piece Husker Du stuff that I wrote lyrics for. Chad: Nope. It sounds like a demo recorded in a basement.
Our bass player had a fretless bass, our drummer was into Neil Pert. Nothing kinda fit. But the songs were alright. I had my band but we were just playing locally and not really getting anywhere. The scene in Kansas City at that time—we were the only band that sounded like that. Son Volt was what changed all that for everybody. Uncle Tupelo was there, but not many people were influenced. Kansas City was more of a heavy rock and Jesus Lizard type rock.
And we sounded like Husker Du. Then I moved back to Kansas City. Not sure why. I think I was just homesick. But we had lost our house in Fort Collins. And nobody had a place to live. I was sleeping on couches. I would sleep in The Blasting Room, on the couch in the reception area. Chad: No. We did the first Drag the River record there, though, just engineering it mostly on our own. So we would go over there after being at the bar somewhere in Fort Collins and Jason Livermore would set everything up for us so that whenever we came in all we had to do was press record and press stop.
That was Hobos Demos stuff, that was fun. A lot of lip service. I think Jon has always been good at somehow getting some of that hard-to-redo sound in there and I hear a lot of it in the Victorstands stuff too. Chad: Definitely that guitar tone. I learned how to play chords from listening to Bob Mould. The ringing, the G with the drone, the high-note drone.
Sometime I sit down and try to write a folk song in C Major and use all the bar chords and I end up just going back to the usual chord changes. But the first Victorstands record too. I had to cover a lot of ground on guitar in that band, a lot like Jon in Armchair.View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the Gatefold Vinyl release of Puttin' It On Ya on Discogs.
