Comments:Hi,
I'm glad you're doing this and that the Vulgar Boatmen are planning more CDs. After Please Panic came out and the great reviews, I heard nothing for several years. When Wide Awake came out I was surprised that they we're still a band and eager to hear more great music.
Do you know if the Boatmen ever plan to tour in the Detroit/Ann Arbor area. It would be very cool to see and hear them in person.
Thanks,
Doug

Comments:I was a late comer to the Vulgar Boatmen having first seen them on a UK tv progaramme called Later hosted by Jools Holland in 1995ish. After the release of Opposite Sex in Europe. They were fab and I downloaded several songs of Napster, obviously after realising just how good they are I snapped up all the commercial output I could (not much in UK) and have been interested in the band ever since

I saw that some people were wondering about bootlegs, and I know an individual who is the master of all Boatment bootlegs from this time period. I hesitate to mention his name in an open forum without his permission. Shoot my an e-mail and I will pass it on.

Im trying to work out the words to You and Your Sister's "Fallen Down" and failing miserably. That unmistakable boatmen drawl has proven difficult to decipher.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows if the band plans to record another studio album at some point. Three just isn't nearly enough. Anyone with G-2 feel free to drop me a line (any other Boatmen fans feel free as well). Take care all.

Comments:My first experience with Vulgar Boatmen was borrowing my brother's cds and copying the ones I thought sounded interesting. Of course You and Your sister was one of them. I first saw the bad at Guru Java at Purdue University in 1993 or 1994, my freshman year. They were great. I remember reading the VB review in Rolling Stone and the Illinois Entertainer when Please Panic came out.

I went the the show at Schubas Jan 2001, taped it. Great show, I had a bunch of photos posted into the other Vulgar Boatmen Yahoo group "drivesomewhere"

Comments:Picked up Mary Jane's #1 Record in my local CD Shops cutout bin and was blown away by how great it sounded. With a little investigation, I discovered they were circling in the same orbit as Vulgar Boatmen (my favorite currrent artist, The Silos Walter Salas Humara was affiliated with V.B.), Frog Holler, D.C.'s own under-the-radar Last Train Home, etc. I found you can get signed copies of Mary Janes two CDs direct from their website. Not sure if I should seek out the V.B. CDs now or wait for possible reissues.

'Overcome by Happiness' (1998) & 'World Won't End' (2001) with his band The Pernice Brothers (both excellent) and solo albums 'Chappaquiddick Skyline' and 'Big Tobacco' (neither quite as appealing as the 2 Pernice Brothers' albums).

Comments:Some exciting news that I heard recently:
The Vulgar Boatmen and the Mysteries of life are playing a show together on Oct. 12 at Second Story in Bloomington. This is in conjunction with a new record label Dale, Jake, and Freda are forming called No Nostalgia. First items of business include a Vulgar Boatmen compilation CD and the Mysteries of Life new third LP.

I'd advise people to catch the Boatmen live if you can. If you are reading this you probably know that to truly see the Boatmen is to see them live.

Comments:Anyone who has gone out of their way to see the Boatmen recently knows that the term "demise" doesn't apply. The only thing that has demised is the apparent musical taste of today's so-called music fans.

Same for Son Volt - since Jay Farrar IS Son Volt, things are just fine. He's got a new disc recorded- I just wish he wasn't such a flake and would release it.

I never heard of the Scud Mtn Boys- I will check them out. But they too appear to have "demised" with no releases since '96?

Comments:Wow, Gulcher is enjoying quite a revival. All this stuff is
probably selling better than it ever did before...

New Boatmen dates:


June 23 Radio Radio Indpls
July 13 Zanies Too Indpls
July 14 Schuba's Chicago

Good lord, how long can they keep up THIS pace??

Oh, important - this may be premature, but hopefully not: a
new label, NoNostalgia, should be up and running soon, like
in July. This label is the future home of Boatmen and
Mysteries of Life recordings. The idea is to make finding
and distributing this music much easier. Hang tight, and
locals should keep your eyes open for a potential
Mysteries/Boatmen showcase to kick off the new label.

Like I said, I hope this info isn't premature. But there is
reason to be hopeful.

I'm gonna feel like a real dumbass if someone already
posted this information here...

tune, or a cover?

It's phenomenal.

If you haven't heard it, you can get it at

http://icdweb.cc.purdue.edu/~heltonbr/mp3/

Some guy recorded a recent show at Schuba's in Chicago and
put some stuff on his web site.

Some other songs are "Drive Somewhere," "Mary Jane," "Cry
Real Tears." The rest are songs I've only heard them play
live.

Unfortunately, he hasn't put up "Allison Says," which is
fabulous live.

Right now, a fun song called "I've Had It," or something.

Comments:The current line up consists of Dale Lawrence, Matt Speake
(guitar), Jake Smith (bass), Andy Richards (drums), Kathy
Kolata (viola), and Sophia Travis (accordian, keys). Of
course this changes every once in a while. If you want to
see them, you have to come to the midwest. This site is
the best place to learn of new dates.
There have been a few new songs lately that I've
heard. "It's True" and "I just bet" are two that were
written co-written by Dale and Jake. You can hear those
songs on the new MYSTERIES OF LIFE (Jake's band) CD. That
will be out probably in July. I highly recommend snatching
up ANY MOL CDs you can get your hands on out there. Dale
and other Vulgar Boatmen have played on all three of the
other MOL CDs.
Jake and Dale have formed a their own record label as well.
It's called NO NOSTALGIA and will be releasing both VB and
MOL CDs. It is still in the works, so no permenant dates
have been set, I guess.
Also, I've been told that the Vulgar Boatmen are finally
back in the studio. Anything beyond that I don't know.
I can help you with the bootlegs if you are still
interested.

request regarding any recorded live material. Any MP3's out
there? The last time I saw the band was in 1989, on my last
day in Gainesville, FL; obviously, the Robert Ray
incarnation. Christ, I've had two kids since their last
album! Anyone who knows anything, please email me. Thanks.

Comments:My copy of the Gizmos 1981 demos just arrived. Hallelujah!
Praise the lord! This is the way rock music is supposed to
be made. Eventhough, I was only 1 year old when this was
made, this music takes me back a couple of years to when I
was a teen. It's kinda like listening to Chuck Berry, the
eternal teenager. Forget the being a civilized adult, this
is were it's at!
I encourage you all to buy this CD. Many of these songs
creep into Vulgar Boatmen sets. Perhaps, they aren't
revisited enough.
If there is anyone out there who can put me in touch with
more Gizmos (tapes, videos, anything). Mr. Pickles?...Dr.
Cotswett?...anybody?

My colleague Dr Bor Cotswett informs me that in fact the
Vulgar Boatmen will be in Chicago at the HIDE OUT and NOT
the Double Door, as they are by no means rich and/or famous
enough to be allowed into the Double Door to use the phone,
let alone get on stage. Or something like that. So, again:

Boatmen, Chicago, Hide out, April 28th.

And thank you, Dr Cotswett.

Comments:THE GIZMOS: 1981 NYC DEMOS--THE MIDWEST CAN BE ALLRIGHT

Gulcher Records announces the debut of a new CD-EP series
with the release of THE GIZMOS: 1981 NYC DEMOS--THE
MIDWEST CAN BE ALLRIGHT, featuring seven songs recorded
shortly before the final incarnation of the group
disbanded. Only the title track, "The Midwest Can Be
Allright," was previously released--on the long out-of-
print 1981 Hoosier punk/new wave sampler, RED SNERTS--THE
SOUND OF GULCHER. Now, 20 years after they were recorded,
all seven of these sought-after songs have been digitally
remastered for release on the original Gulcher label. Many
consider these tracks the coming-of-age of songwriter/lead
vocalist/guitarist Dale Lawrence, who went on to form the
critically acclained Vulgar Boatmen, and has just had a new
book about Indiana high school basketball, THE HOOSIER
HYSTERIA ROADBOOK, published by Diamond Books. Guitarist
Tim Carroll led the hyperbilly band Blue Chieftains to
success, and now enjoys a solo career in Nashville,
Tennessee, writing songs that have been covered by the
likes of John Prine and Robbie Fulks. Billy Nightshade
relocated to Boston as bass guitarist for Unattached,
hooking up with his brother Mark Frazier on guitar, and
Jamie Severens of the Jetsons on lead vocals. A recent
Gizmos reunion in Bloomington, Indiana, had the dance floor
rocking with 20-something kids singing along to these
songs, learned from cassette tapes dubbed and re-dubbed
over the past two decades. THE GIZMOS: 1981 NYC DEMOS--THE
MIDWEST CAN BE ALLRIGHT will be available soon in your
neighborhood record store, or e-mail Gulcher directly for
mail order. Track Listing: "The Midwest Can Be
Allright," "Hard Hoboken Line," "See About You," "Same Old
Mountain Music," "Biscuits & Gravy," "My Baby Loves Crime,"
Please Panic."
