Kind of Like Spitting Discography


Giu 7 2006, 11:29

Most of it is done now, although finding out about pressings is hard, and I don't have the exact release dates for quite a few of the releases. So if anyone has any info that I'm missing, please say. Also, tracks that haven't made CDs I'd love to know, live covers and all. Thanks.

  • andrewbiles

    They will indeed get a mention. I'll probably include them in the compilation part as they were released week by week.

    Giu 11 2006, 15:15
  • andrewbiles

    ^ That's the one, thank you. Anyone see anything missing? I think most of it is there, but there's bound to be something missing. I'll try and get done the tracks for the compilations as well, which shouldn't take too long.

    Giu 19 2006, 12:34
  • betterhalves

    I've got a four-song demo called Meredith and Ben. None of the tracks have names. Not sure where it came from.

  • andrewbiles

    ^ Do you have a CD of it or just download?

    Lug 8 2006, 11:54
  • betterhalves

    Downloaded, but I'm pretty sure it's legit. I'd be happy to send it to ya

  • LittleTriggers

    haha man, this brings back memories of me going overboard in a similar manner when i worked on the website awhile back. you pretty much have it all. some extras i have here are fire alarm (and has a piece of itself plopped into the middle of Shallow Doses)and You Have to Let me Try Again and No, No Girl (I'm at the Backdoor which were you secretly want me dead outtakes. Also, I don't love you anymore is a magnetic fields cover, for completists sake.

    Lug 17 2006, 2:32
  • andrewbiles

    Thanks a lot, hadn't heard of any of those. What site did you used to run? I knew about the Magnetic Fields cover, completely forgot to mark it down though. It's not letting me update the entry for some reason otherwise those would be added. Thanks a lot.

    Lug 17 2006, 10:18
  • conorissoscene

    is there any way i could get fire alarm, you have to let me try again, or no, no girl? i'm working on uploading my slotcar/sodajerk split cassette. it's just tough because i don't have the technology yet. that wasn't supposed to rhyme. but yeah. xoxo conor

  • andrewbiles

    ^ If you do manage to get those tracks up please say, I'd love to hear them. Also, Littletriggers, you know you want to put them up don't you ;) Ben put his cover of 'An American Tune' up on myspace the other day I noticed, and recently had his 'les serpientes en el plano' up - which seem to only get noticed by 5/6 people, but ah well...

    Ago 20 2006, 1:48
  • andrewbiles

    I managed to get the Worker Bee demos last week, but don't have the In the Red sessions, so if you can be assed to upload those it'd be great. The live footage is the Live at the Fireside Bowl show, right? I've seen bits of that and got the audio for it but didn't ever manage to get all of the videos.

    Ago 26 2006, 0:43
  • andrewbiles

    Is the video in quite a dark room with David there as well? All in quicktime movie files as well? I don't have AIM or soulseek unfortunately anyway. If you fancy uploading some of the stuff to [spam] or something I'm sure everyone would appreciate it, but if you don't, fair do's. Cheers.

    The album I told you about is the same as Audio Information Phenomena... the title there actually being the original record label. Just noticed it on my record.

    do you have some of this stuff, particularly the covers and live songs? this is amazing.

    Here is a little more info. Ben was in a band called Violin Capital. It is a hardcore band and they at least released a 3 song demo. I have the Violin Capital, Slot Car, and Meredith and ben music. I also have the original tape he released and hang out condition. And I have the Vera Project, the live CD he put out on his birthday. Another thing I have is the import of bridges worth burning. What I really want is You Have to Let me Try Again and No, No Girl (I'm at the Backdoor which were you secretly want me dead outtakes.

    just a note, the self-titled record on Hush is a re-recording of the "blue ep," not a re-release.

    Mar 10 2009, 17:27
  • blackdrink

    this is impressive. do you happen to have a copy of the recording of the Cash Money Bros. live set on your computer? the only ones I've found online are outdated and now dead links.

    Gen 25 2010, 5:42
  • andrewbiles

    I do, well, I should. I'll have to check to make sure someone hasn't deleted it. Might try and set up a blog with the bootlegs and rarities on at some point because a couple of people have asked about certain things over the last two or three months.

    Gen 26 2010, 17:07
  • darklombax

    It would be AMAZING if you could put those rarities up
