i know he's mostly been working with his band "the pickled beats" which, i think, is a cover band.

Is this Bibleland bonanza slowing down? Not on my watch!

"Broken Ladders to Glory" and "Stone Away" are the perfect beginning and ending songs for this sweet swig of satisfying sonic cider.

I love BibleLand.
I did not buy it when it first came out, but I picked it up on cassette years later.
Spring of 2002 I think. I fell in love with it on the first listen.
I remember blaring it on my route and it echoing around the parking lot when I was unloading my passengers.

I few of my co-wokers made some "Dennis is rockin' out today" kind of comments!

I said "Damb right I am!" Pleased

At the Terry and Mike BBQ, I bought the CD from Terry, along with Live Bootleg '82 and Kalhoun (I had them on tape, not CD.)

When Terry and the rest of DA were on the board a few years ago,
I told him that a lot of his lyrics which seemed funny at first, turned out to be really sad lyrics
and he agreed and mention people laughing at the line
"You in your tattered gown, me in my underpants" in concerts
and he saw it as being about brokenness, not as a funny line at all.

For a brief (no pun intended) moment, he considered using "me in my unmentionables", but it just didn't have the same ring to it.

hmmm... "tighty whiteys" has a certain ring to it

still, can anyone sing underpants at a concert and expect to be taken seriously? it defies one's natural bent toward remorsifulcation

and why does underpants sound different than underwear?

and why did my daughter always laugh herself silly between the ages of 4 to 17 every time she or someone else said "mickey mouse's underwear" ? i never figured that one out

and what's worse, wearing underpants to church and every body seeing your panty lines, or not wearing any underwear at all?

I always dug his contributions to the Misery/History discs.


i assume just because he moved to nashville......... a townsend may have more info....... Confused


I think that was the main reason. It always seemed like Terry likes to change the band mix a bit every now and then as well, but I think it was more geography than anything else.

Jerry's starting to work with the fellas more now that they're recording in Nashville more. He of course contributed to Lost Cabin and the Mystery Trees and Spot showed up on Midget.

In the words of Doc Love...

Jerry is a great guitar player and a swell guy. Some of you may have noticed that he's active again in our camp and I look forward to a lot more of that.

James -- thanks for the kind words. it's not possible that i could've ever been a household name but thanks for the thought.

As usual, i find the comments fascinating. yes, there's definitely some darkness in some of the lyrics, but there's beauty as well.

and i can tell you there was absolutely no frustration while playing that stuff in the studio. the musical energy you hear is actually pure joy and passion as opposed to anger or frustration. but i can also see how it can come off sounding like that. (jiminy, i'm not trying to contradict you, because the truth is that there is a bit of what you heard the way you heard it, on the record. especially in the lyrics.)

but we were having a blast. da recording sessions are always a combination of ridiculousness, intensity, uncontrollable laughter, and an attempt, at least, to be open to anything.

i'll tell a little story that i may have told here before so forgive me if you've heard this one. "the bubble bursts" is one of my favorite tracks that i've ever had the opportunity to play on. if you listen carefully you can hear a sort of greasy kind of "swing" to the basic track. ed and i recorded the basic (just bass and drums) with terry playing a scratch guitar plugged straight into the board in the control room as a guide for us to follow the song. (in other words, the guitar wasn't recorded .)

ed and i tracked that at 4 in the morning and, um,...er,... we may or may not have had a couple or three beers in us. (ok, it was jack daniels for me. there. are you happy?!)

we went home and when we came in the next day and listened to the track, it sounded so horrible that everyone thought it should be burned. but it also had this wonderful drunken slow-gallop/swing to it. (you can hear it kick in where the vocal starts.) once jerry and greg recorded some strategically placed guitar stabs and ed recorded snare shots over the same parts, it smoothed everything out but kept the gallop. we added more guitars and that's the track that made it onto bibleland.

The Bubble Bursts is a great tune, I love the drunk punch feel of it.
What's that weird / cool effect on the break?

hey dennis -- if we're thinking about the same thing, i think you're hearing those affected snare shots with a slightly muffled guitar part underneath.

time to put on the headphones..
do I need a beer first?? Cool
(jk)

Thanks Tim- WHERES THE BOOK!?!

I love every tale about every song...
and you have the right to contradict me at any juncture.I mean - what the heck do I know???? (plus you were there)

I can easily imagine that a DA session would be all of the above..doing what you love and can do best is always a rewarding thing..
is it Work?- well yes and no...

hey jiminy! -- like i said, there is some truth in what YOU said. especially if you read the lyrics to "bakersfield" for instance.
