I've gotten a few emails asking about this and I figured it was only a matter of time before someone else posted about it so I'll let the cat outta the bag. The Gories and the Oblivians are currently working on booking some shows for next summer. One in Memphis, one in Detroit and two weeks in Europe. I'll post more when the dates become solid.

Posted: Sep 30, 2008 10:00 am
 
Yeah, I posted so infrequently I forgot my old password.
Posted: Sep 30, 2008 10:01 am
 
wow! How about, GONERFESt!

That would save some Europeeans some dough and make it a little easier on those of us who have to travel...
Posted: Sep 30, 2008 10:02 am
 
Is it april 1st? Am I dreamin?

Gonna sell my Shell stock right now anyway so I'll have the money to travel, just to be on the safe side.

Gonerfest is in Memphis. We're doing a Memphis show. How would it be easier?
Posted: Sep 30, 2008 10:07 am
 
just in case you forgot your geography, there is a west coast to these united states.

then again, i always wanted to see detroit in the summer.

congrats on scoring "orphan boy"
Posted: Sep 30, 2008 10:13 am | Edited by: greg O
 
Making everyones schedule work (the dirtbombs have a pretty rigid touring schedule next year) did not allow for a full US tour and we thought it most important to do home town shows. sorry west coast.
Posted: Sep 30, 2008 10:13 am
 
Easier cause those of us hwo don't live there would only have to make 1 trip for the year to see everything including said show. Thats all. Financial reasons basically.
Posted: Sep 30, 2008 10:16 am
 
I gotcha Mike. Unfortunately schedules could not conform.
Posted: Sep 30, 2008 10:17 am
 
i'd take oblivs vs. gories over g-fest, and i'm not slighting g-fest at all.

Greg,
That is excellent news indeed. I just replied to your last message on my "SEEKING COMPULSIVE GAMBLERS / REIGNING SOUND Footage" post. Please send me another email at:
brokenstringrob@yahoo.com
I have been working on a documentary film about modern Memphis music and too many roads lead to you on this subject. I would like to arrange to film an interview with you by all means necessary (as I have filmed interviews with Eric and Jack).
Thanks,
Robert

Posted: Sep 30, 2008 1:42 pm
 
not really. but at least dee-troit. gambling afterwards.
Posted: Sep 30, 2008 1:43 pm
 
OK, this is starting to look legit... SWEET! This Oblivians Memphis reunion will not go down like the last one when we got there too late and missed the whole thing!

But I'm still skeptical about this lightning69 guy- somebody check him out.
Posted: Sep 30, 2008 1:45 pm
 
that is glorious, glorious news.
Posted: Sep 30, 2008 1:46 pm

all i said was that we're not flying anyone over to do merch, drive, etc
but if you want to fly yourself over, might have a job for ya.........
Posted: Sep 30, 2008 6:14 pm
 
All kinds of coolness. Hardly ever got to see the Gories and only seen the Oblivians a few times.
Posted: Sep 30, 2008 9:47 pm
 
That is basically the best news I've ever heard.
Posted: Sep 30, 2008 10:10 pm
 
are currently working on booking some shows for next summer

That leaves little time to find a bass player.

Posted: Sep 30, 2008 10:51 pm
 
Please make the Detroit show before the Memphis show. Unless the Memphis show will be on Saturday and Detroit show on Sunday. Boners!
Posted: Sep 30, 2008 11:09 pm
 
Greg, give me a ring. We should talk about some stuff....
Posted: Oct 1, 2008 12:51 am
 
well hell yeah; I always wanted to go to Memphis anyway (I've seen Oblivians twice and Gories never, but I'm really curious about them)- alright then, sounds like a blast Mr. O!!
Posted: Oct 1, 2008 1:58 am
 
Kalamazoo aint that far from Motown.......ya know...
Posted: Oct 1, 2008 2:26 am
 
saw the oblivians about 5 times and the gories once - sorry, reunions are boring - just come over with the reigning sound!

Hey everybody. I've received lots of emails about the booking of the european end of this. Though the time frame is still not definite, our booking agent is Ankie Snass out of Holland and she may be reached at ankster@chello.nl for serious inquiries and offers. thanks.
Posted: Oct 1, 2008 10:47 am
 
Can't believe I'm agreeing with Luke, though I'd like to see the Gories, even as a reunion thing, for the first time.
Posted: Oct 1, 2008 10:53 am
 
I'm gonna see 'm

Wooohooo!!! Ankie, from Holland!!!! So surely some Dutch shows I guess!! I had a chat with her at the Black Lips show last thursday and she didn't say anything??? Ankie's cute!!!

oh, and sorry Luke, but FUCK LUKE!!! I'm so excited about a few Oblivians/Gories or Gories/Oblivians shows!!!
Posted: Oct 1, 2008 11:47 am
 
Any thoughts on adding NYC gig???
Posted: Oct 1, 2008 11:52 am
 
Sorry Tom, only home town gigs. Detroit is a good option for NYC folks though.

Posted: Oct 1, 2008 5:54 pm
 
i'll probably be moved outta memphis by then, but i'll be damned if i won't come back for this shit. holy damn.
Posted: Oct 2, 2008 4:16 am
 
Fingers and toes crossed fer a UK gig, I've just emailed PJ from the Dirty Water Club with Anke's details...

Greg, are y'all playing Memphis this New Year's Eve?

No show in N.C., no Memphis new years show for reigning sound.
Posted: Oct 2, 2008 8:13 am
 
show for reigning sound.

perhaps a tour with the new album? when's that coming out again?
Posted: Oct 2, 2008 8:23 am
 
The more I think about this reunion eurotrip, the more I realise it’s gonna be total FUN. Think I’m gonna spin some party pounders at the Belgian show. After all, it’s all about havin’ a good time, right?

(+ disagreeing with trickknee always feels good)
Posted: Oct 2, 2008 8:46 am
 
Any idea of when or where in Europe? More so where? I am going a few place next summer, nothing important, I'd almost plan my trip around it, if it was at all practical.
Posted: Oct 2, 2008 8:54 am
 
Both bands should play the Colosseum in Rome like true r&r gladiators!!

all bass, dj, keytar & midi stuff! we realized that when we stopped playing together, we still had so much to say... and that we really needed to stretch out and grow artistically.

now that i know diminished, inverted, and minor chords we'll really sound great! holding us back no longer!

gories new album: Back Into Here!

So you're bringing Detroit to NYC? Very cool.

i still gots that drum machine... will put to "surf" beat and let it fly!
Posted: Oct 3, 2008 10:46 am
 
By the way, I think this is great for both bands, they deserve it. But, you know, reunions.
Posted: Oct 3, 2008 1:00 pm
 
Alright already Todd, you don't want to see it. Stay home. Yeesh.
Posted: Oct 3, 2008 1:39 pm
 
is this a joke??
Posted: Oct 3, 2008 1:49 pm
 
I'd rather hear new tracks from you and Eric, I don't think it's insulting to say that!
Posted: Oct 3, 2008 3:39 pm
 
I usually don't care about reunion shows (cuz most of 'em these days are missing original members and/or they haven't kept musically active in the off time) but this will be all original members, they've stayed for the most part active in music AND are two of my favorite bands of all times so THIS IS VERY EXCITING NEWS IN MY WORLD! Hell, if the Detroit show is all ages I'm bringing my oldest son too.
Posted: Oct 3, 2008 5:07 pm
 
Don't play England, it'll give me an excuse to go on holiday to Europe. It'll be like National Lampoon's European Vacation but even funnier

if we're gonna do rubble, i'd prefer a more cop-free location than tiger stadium...
nice concept though
been thinking about an outside show like this fer along time.......
Posted: Oct 6, 2008 10:45 pm
 
My vote for the location:
Belle Isle!
Posted: Oct 6, 2008 10:46 pm
 
ya know, Nolan Strong wrote "The Wind" while driving thru Belle Isle,
making it sacred ground.

Forget Carpet House or even Red Carpet Lounge.

Resurrect the mounds!

The mounds were crafted by Native Americans during the late Woodland period, circa A.D. 500-1300. Several dozen ancient mounds are believed to have been used as burial grounds and for decorative and ceremonial purposes in this area. The Native Americans who settled here later believed the mounds to be sacred, without knowing who built them, but most of the mounds were leveled when European settlers transformed Detroit as an agricultural town.
"There were mounds right where the Rouge River meets the Detroit River, on the Detroit side," Hocking says.
"The two largest mounds were right near the Detroit River, south of Jefferson and east of Rouge, and the one that was closest to the river was conical in shape, and estimated to be about 50 feet tall and 300 feet in diameter, but it was eroded by cattle. Now there's a giant brownfield there. Southwest Delray was heavy with native sites too, but the only evidence is on Fort Wayne. They do have a small mound they've preserved, but it's very small and fenced off and so overgrown you can't really see it anymore."

Re: Oblivians & Gories European dates ...

Any chance you'll be playing Albania in mid-June?!?

I won't hold my breath ...
Posted: Oct 20, 2008 6:42 am
 
One in Memphis, one in Detroit and two weeks in Europe.

I will so be at some of those European dates, woot! My better half is over the moon at the thought of a Gories/Oblivian gig.
Posted: Oct 20, 2008 4:46 pm
 
Where is the Detroit show going to be?

I vote Boblo Island. Even if the Boblo boat isn't seaworthy, organize a rocknroll flotilla to ferry the crowd across the river. It would be grand.
Posted: Oct 20, 2008 9:28 pm
 
I am so glad this is finally going to happen! it's about time! I wanna come to every show. two of my favorite bands together!
if you need a reliable driver/merch guy/rockin' DJ Keep ol' Matty in mind! yes, I'll buy my own ticket over! just keep me fed with bread, cheese, and cuts of salami and I'll be happy! it sounds like it\s gonna be an amazing time

Greg, PJ from the Dirty Water Club really wants to put y'all on, but said he's heard nowt from yer agent... he's done gigs like Radio Birdman and The Monks, so he's a stand up guy...

Great bloke, great venue!

same schedule

which is??
Posted: Dec 8, 2008 6:04 pm
 
It's still being booked but the gigs will start around the end of May. We're not going to England. Work permits and what not are a little stiff and the drive a little long for one, maybe two shows. Sorry, I'm sure he's a great guy and it's a great club.

Merry x-mas everybody!!!

By the way, Jesus Lizard are also reuniting!

Yeah, super excited about that. Hope it's not a letdown!!! Seen Yow a few times since then, he doesn't seem to have changed much (at all), so there is hope.

Jesus Lizard, letdown? Not even possible! I just hope they play European mainland. Or maybe it's a good reason to give the UK a visit.

Gories (Effenaar, Eindhoven - 1992)

Jesus Lizard was the worst band I ever seen.
Posted: Dec 23, 2008 9:12 am
 
hahahahaha good one
Posted: Dec 23, 2008 9:24 am
 
I saw the Jesus Lizard about 8 or 9 times - living in Chicago during their hey-day helped alot - and I must agree with Kevin... a show at Lounge Ax I saw (right around when 'Liar' was released) was one of the best shows I've ever seen…
Posted: Dec 23, 2008 9:25 am
 
I saw the Oblivians once. I needed to vomit the whole time. No fun. Play somewhere sunny and warm and coastal.

How could a band possibly think "Puddle of Mudd" was a good band name?
"Ian, what should we call the band?"
"How about...Puddle of Mudd!"
"I don't know..."
"No wait. Here's the catch...We spell mudd with TWO Ds!"
"SWEET!"
"Swiggity- Sweet."
Posted: Dec 24, 2008 8:33 am
 
I'm sorry. That was way off topic.
Posted: Dec 24, 2008 8:40 am
 
"Eric, what should we call the band?"
"How about... Oblivians!"
"I don't know..."
"No wait. Here's the catch...We spell Oblivians with an A!"
"SWEET!"
Swiggity- Sweet."

it works with the Gories too...

but those 2 bands rule...
Posted: Dec 24, 2008 10:14 am
 
and their names are halfway decent.
Posted: Dec 24, 2008 12:19 pm
 
Every band name sucks, unless the band happens to rock.

Rocking cures stoopid.
Posted: Dec 28, 2008 10:46 pm
 
any more updates on the U.S. show dates?...we're tryin' to book a little tour in april and I don't wanna miss out on the show(s)....
Posted: Jan 1, 2009 9:10 am
 
Any news on East Cost dates (MA, NY, etc) ??


Would like to add a couple of Canadian gigs to the stretch if interested... I'll write the booking agent I guess but would be helpful to know what's lined up so far.

Happy New Year to all!

One in Memphis, one in Detroit and two weeks in Europe

only home town gigs. Detroit is a good option for NYC folks though.



jessus goddamn motherfucking christ already.

Hey, will the Gories and Oblivians come over to my house and
hang out with me? My mom said you can come over and hang!

Posted: Jan 1, 2009 10:11 am
