The Weissaoic Era
Notes:
  • Welcome To William Weiss. The resiliency of Deadstein shined tonight. We transitioned out of Dennis and into William Weiss just like a Swiss watch. Like a China/Rider, Scarlet/Fire, Abbott & Costello into Bowery Boys, you get the point.
  • You have to give Scott credit for pulling it all together and taking care of us.
First Set Comments:
  • Uncle John's was the only song of the first set. It worked. The vocals were unacceptable but what do you expect when you go from hundreds of pounds of speakers and other stuff to Larry's little Peavy guitar amp. To be honest with you, I never heard an amp with 2 mics plugged into it sound so good. The final jam on it was very long, spacey and without too much purpose. I thank we were just all happy to realize what we were doing and where we were.
Half Time Comments:
  • Bens Deli: open till 9:30
  • Many briskets with gravy. I don't know about the briskets but the gravy was very thick and un-called for. I had pastrami and corned beef.
  • Knish was soggy, fries were like Nathan's and very good. Best thing about the place.
  • Dr. Brown's variety. So long Snapple. What's up Doc?
  • In the end, literally, I don't like Ben's. It's just a little too sickening and just not that good. I really feel a bit ill from that place. Both times.
Second Set Comments: Brrp! Ahhh! Help me! Are we really going to play? Boy it's cold in the studio. I want dessert! What are we going to cut out? Shit, I wished I washed my hands. My eye is bulging out of my socket. Damn us to Hell!
  • He's Gone was nice. It was much scopier than the Uncle John's. It almost. We had a nice jam before and after it.
  • The Truckin was pretty good. The intro was muffed but the song was hot and we did a five round final jam build-up. Two more than the norm. It was a way to wake up the sleeping asbestos. It had a pretty long, drawn out last jam.
Weather:
  • CloudsIt was very comfortable in our new setting. The only problems were the new vibrations causing the asbestos to become unsettled. The air was thick in there and I didn't like it. It was the worst thing about the room.
