It was a band called The Elms. We were on Sparrow Records. I was with them for three and a half years. I did one independent album and one EP on Sparrow. I stepped down for a number of reasons, but mostly because I wanted to get married and made squat playing in the band. The band is still together and are currently signed to Universal South (as far as I know).

By the way (and I've mentioned this on the board before), I had Terry speak at my wedding and play a song, and the Lost Dogs played at the reception. Good times. (Terry, if you read this, thanks again.)

Never heard of the Elms, but found out through the power of Google.
Very nice, good stuff, what I heard.

I liked the "Hey, Hey" song.

recently, i've used, exclusively, amp simulators. the only recording i've done has been engineered by Derri, and he's really good at getting a sound with one or more of those modules.

FWIW, (and i think i've said this before but i'm going to say it again because it's about Gene, ) Gene, as a recording engineer, really loved low end and experimented with it a lot. he gave me many different sounds over the years, but the sound he captured on bibleland is the closest to what that rig sounded like as i stood in front of it on-stage at a live gig. i miss Gene more for other reasons, just simply as a friend, but i also owe him a lot for the sound he gave me on record.


I think that may be one of the best things about Bibleland, the sound and tone of your bass.
It really fits the rawness of the album coupled with the great tunes.

"Pete and repeat" reminds me of The Who at their best with the snearing
"Naw , naw naws" at the end.

You know what Tim?
When I asked about the break on "The Bubble Bursts" I was thinking of the weird break on "Pete and Repeat!"

So, what the heck is that effect? Shocked Confused

I'll weigh in and say that there was a huge leap forward between my first impression of BIBLELAND and my current opinion of it.

This was especially true of "Bakersfield." When I first heard it, it made no sense to me, and the liner notes (quoted earlier) shed no light. Then I found out what it was really about, and it all snapped into place. It's now the track I most look forward to hearing when listening to the CD.

It can really make a difference to know the story behind a song.

Upon listening to BL on the way to work, it struck me that the "Naw, Naw, Naw" part was at the end of Theo's Logic.

I guess no matter what song I think of from BL, my mind races to my favorite parts of the record and attaches it to that song I am thinking of..

On Pete and Repeat, it has that cool backwords sounding part I love so much.

What a great album.

From the 1994 Terry interviews on this site:
quote:
I don't know much about Bakersfield. Part of the song is based on my own personal experience -- that was the death of my grandfather. Bakersfield was where we had to go and see him in the hospital. That song was written out of the experience of going to that particular city; my feelings towards the town were definitely colored by that sense of impending death. It could have really been any city.

(different interview)
My grandfather died in Bakersfield. We would have to travel off to Bakersfield to see him in the hospital in one of the bleakest towns on the face of the earth. He had always been a strong man, central in my life, and someone I deeply admired. To see him in that hospital, shut down the way he was, was very disturbing.... The references to (sportscaster Vin) Scully are there because my grandfather was the guy who always had Vin Scully on the radio in his garage when I was a kid...

Once I'd read the above, the song's rage made sense to me. (As did the references to "Scully." At the time BL came out, the name "Scully" was mainly associated with The X-Files, so its use in this song really confused me!)

Thanks, I used to think that about the X-Files Scully too, until I read about Vin Scully. I didn't know who had died there. I guess I missed the part about his grandfather. Thanks again. It is a very good song.
I will have to listen to the disc again on my way home.

When I first saw BL in the store, I didn't even give it a chance I am sad to say.
I saw the title and thought it was too "youth-groupie."

Silly me.

If I would have given it half a listen I would have fallen in love with it, as I did years later when I bought it used on cassette.

Not after spending much time on the TalkBass forums where someone says it everytime her name comes up. It might be different if it were true.

After Tim, Weymouth is the player from whom I've learned the most.
