Wax Fang
« on: May 31, 2011, 07:35 PM »
Just watched the new MMJ documentary again to get ready for tonight. Would like to purchase a Wax Fang album. Any recommendations? Definitely going to see these guys if they ever come to Houston! Thanks!

They only have an EP and and LP I believe. There's not much quantitative difference between the necessity of having both albums.

Get LaLaLand
I have the EP "Dark and Endless nights" as well but its one man band demo really.  Although the track sweet bloody murder is awesome!  Ratterman plays the kit on LaLaLand and he rules.
I met them after a show a few years back and they were very cool.  Went to see Aloha and they blew Aloha off the stage.  Asked where they were from and after he said L'ville we talked a bit about the jacket.  Who knew a few years later he would be asst engineer for Circuital.  And his mug is on the insert a few times as well.
Guitar player/singer uses a looper a slide and a theramin.  Pretty sweet and definitely original.

They are hitting up St Louis again as Dr Dog's opener. I do believe I will be attending that.

The venue's website.  http://www.firebirdstl.com/

I did a search and couldn't find any info anywhere else however.

Not exactly prolific are they?  I'm dying for new Fang.   They are opening for Dr. Dog here.   I had already bought Chris Robinson tickets for that night so I'm going to try and figure out a way to do both.
I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

this may all be total BS, but this is what I think... They have professional lives. One of em is a teacher (I've been told this, don't quote me), and one has a family. Maybe they're just taking the band as an enjoyable thing, thus not in any hurry to tour/make new albums

I know Kevin is constantly doing other projects/producing/guesting etc.

There will be a new album but I don't know when.  Kevin has moved or is moving to Austin.  Not sure what that means for the band.  I saw Scott hanging with the bassist this Saturday but didn't want to ask.  Hopefully they can stay together.  There are only two fellows in this city who could possibly fill Kevin's shoes and Patrick already has a good gig.  The other one is Van Campbell maybe they could recruit him, but he's also got a good gig or two with Bonnie Prince Billy and the Black Diamond Heavies.

Thanks Dylan.  I really hope they can stay together.  I would hate to see Kevin leave the band.

Met their manager getting some draft a few weeks ago in nash, he went to highschool with Jimbob and seemed like a good gent. Anyway he had killer pictures of them playing/recording(?) in the same church MMJ used. He wouldnt share any of the pics, especially ones with the big white owl hanging out in the church. Said they had finished recording their new album and had done the mastering on music row or were going to do it soon(?). Told me to download Astronaut pt. 1 & 2 from itunes and that it would blow my mind. Itunes only has pt. 1 for 2.99. Is that the right one to pick? Or do i need to keep looking for a pt. 1&2?
