January 2000: It's been almost 2 years to the day since I
last updated the site. My apologies to everyone, but when a hobby turns
into work, it's time to move on. So I guess like most everything on the
net, this site will be frozen in 1998. Fortunately, the band has their own
very official site at superchunk.com and I know for a fact
Jon is always up on it. So give them my best and get the new-ish record --
Come Pick Me Up.
Take care, kids.
Nov 6: Tour dates for Europe! Get 'em while they're hot.
Oct 24: Well, where to start? First off: Sonicnet is hosting another Superchunk chat on Tuesday 28 October at 7PM EST. So go talk to them! Other things: I recently received a bunch of old photos of the band from Jon--pics from tours, in the studio, general mayhem and nonsense. It'll probably be another couple weeks before I find the time to sort through them and scan a bunch in. Sorry bout that. All my time is being sucked away by my thesis. Even more than before. Grrr. I'll try to do my best. In the meantime, get on the mailing list if you aren't already--ask Dave to set you up. That's where the most recent stuff comes in first. I promise at least next time I'll be back in sooner than a month... Matt.
Sept 21: Hey kids, I know it's been a while. Indoor Living is out. Get it! We've got more tour dates and hopefully by this evening, the sound samples and a page for Indoor Living. Untill then...
Aug 31: Indoor Living (the new album) has been moved back due to the UPS strike, so look for it in stores on the 9th. Be sure to check back here on the 3rd for a sneak listen at a few track samples (tasty!)
Aug 12: Article on the Chunksters in Option from right around the time of Incidental. (Came with the press release). Still updating!
Aug 2: Still plowing through the updates. See the shocking photo essay from behind the studio doors! Updates will be finished soon, soon, soon. Promise.
Hey! How was the portastatic show at nyu?
It's a month away from the end of the term, so you're superbusy and aren't really going to redesign this whole silly thing, are you?
If you're really into the panel & symposium side of things, the wonderful people at IMF have asked me to talk on a panel of indie internet lackies about the net and indie music. So come say hi and tell me to get my act together.
Beep! Beep! News!
Yes, but what does this Laughter Guns thing sound like?
I can't find this Superchunk/Portastatic 7 inch!
Various Superchunk reviews from
Green Mountain Music Review,
Merge is on-line! Complete with Merge news, new releases, the complete mail order catalog, tour dates for bunches of Merge bands, and (of course) icons by Laura. Be forwarned, though--the words and pictures option is mighty big and slow.
Just look at what you missed:
A cool poster from a Superchunk, Drive Like Jehu, Polvo and Tanner show in Colorado.
A whole bunch of new and newly reorganized articles, interviews, photos,
tab, and discography.
