What a great fucking time. Glad to see so many old friends. Met new ones, too.
Bands, great.
Each year is better and better.

Gonerfest 9!
Posted: Sep 26, 2011 8:42 am
 
damn I had a great weekend, in spite of having to miss all the day shows. As usual, my 3rd gonerfest was chock full of surprises and new favorites.

Robin, it was nice to meet you. We didn't get to converse much, but at least you were consciously ruining Nenne Trapper's life instead.

Robin, you rule...Eric and Zac and everyone else as well, you all worked your asses off so everyone could have a great time...and they did. Flying out this afternoon, but we'll be back...guaranteed. get your asses up to Portland so we can return the favor! Viva la Memphis!

Robin's a poser for having a nice weekend, doing the world a favor and not having a 100% success rate? Fuck man, if I'm a "coward" and Robin's a "poser", then call me a poser-coward rather than "biggest whinging baby on the internet", which is what I call you.

and what the fuck was anyone expecting with the Alarm Clocks? They were a bunch of grandpa's earnestly doing the same damn thing they've been doing for fifty years. It was fun and it wasn't by any means mindblowing. Were you expecting it to be better than the afterlife band of Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, GG Allin, Jay Reatard, and Sandy Denny? Is Goner paying some sort of friendly homage not "Goner" or punk rock enough for you? You are a demented dude.

I 'made final got it home' last night at 6 in the morning. 'Gonferfest' was great. Uh, I'm writing this from my Mom's house, I'm picking up some supplies like garbage bags and powerful bugspray for my clothes and luggage then mowing the lawn and maybe another lawn. I had a great time, I showed up in Memphis with a pocket full of 'oricrabs' and 'adderballs', plus midgrade 'medicine in some states' and 'cheap in my state' burbon. I also had some psychmeds some dude sold me for a beer in a bar befor I left 'kent yucky.' I through it out the window in Nashville, because best case scenerio is that I'd date rape myself. The idea was to stratigically balance the downers with the uppers, but make a long story short I missed all the afterparties, and was on a constant lowgrade 'highball' of some sort. Felt fucking awesome the entire time but still kicking myself for not toughing it out for Redondo Beat or 'Royal Pndltns'...then worried about buying all the gas on the way home I didn't buy another memory card for my camera for the closing ceremonies and missed some choice shots of Rob K. But on an affirmative note, this afternoon I'm going to my gym to sign up for yoga classes.

The hotel room was fine, a maid (or trained assassin) stole my hard to replace sunglasses the second day, and there was blood on my sheets and a dead cockroach under my pillow I discovered the third night. Sunday morning Josh had bed bug bites and on the way home I discovered I had one on the top of my head...All in all I'm ready to stay at Motel Sex again next year. I got good footage of Gories amongst others to share with Bazooka Joe, and the barbq at Tops was cold making it authentic Memphis. I consider my sunglasses penance to the rocknroll faery. We drove home in nonstop pooring rain, got home at 4am, and were locked out of the house, I drove home, luckily didn't have to host the rest of my crew. Took a shower to wash off the dried blood and parasites. Slept naked in my own damn bed, woke up at 11, watched porn, discovered some local girls wanted to know about my trip, drummer wants to know about band practice, drove with no fucking sunglasses to my Moms house, fridge full of pizza, smoked turkey, diet coke, about to mow some motherfucking lawn with no sun glasses....so I'm saying it was a wonderful awesome mixed bag of craziness. Good times, good catching up with folks and making questionable impressions on new ones...viva la rocknroll.

So do you just do drugs so you can talk about it on Internet message boards later?

I personally was not impressed with this year's lineup...saving my money to do it next year instead.

The fighting in this thread is childish.

The end.

Obviously you missed the running gag about the Alarm Clocks on this board that went on for years. Like I said before, you don't read other peoples posts, cause your too busy jerking off.


I've only lived in Memphis for two years, and I've only been on this board for two years. Indeed there was much jerking off in the 31 years of my life that I lived before setting up camp in this little corner of the internet.

By presenting Gonerfest they hope they get famous as a recording studio. Well, what a way to go.
That Jack acts like the Mother Theresa of rock 'n roll is disgusting. He is climbing over the back of Goner Records to a higher plateau.


I've gotta stand up for JackStands on this one - He's been recording shows for years because he enjoys it. Gonerfest was a natural progression from the FREE recordings he has done for the local bands for years. Give him shit all day long if you want, but not for that.

going into it, i knew the lineup didn't look as strong as other years but it was still a great time. i even managed to catch all 3 after-hours shows.

it was the 4th time i've seen the gories & this was easily the best. ty segall kicked ass. i saw him in nashville the night before & will see him again in cleveland on fri night since i'll be there for work anyway.

jack o kicked ass on thurs afternoon. shannon & the clams was better than i thought they would be & i'm now hooked. mean jeans, the brides, midnite snaxxx, straight arrows & ryan rosseau were all solid. for whatever reason, i didn't have high expectations for rev. john wilkins but his set was great.

As far as the after shows, the royal pendletons were in my top 3 for the weekend. they absolutely killed, even though they didn't start until about 4am. acid baby jesus is also really good. i look forward to seeing them again in columbus in a couple weeks.

i'll be back next year.

Sorry, that was supposed to be Motherfuck-er..in the singular..plane took off before I could correct it.....and on another note..Reverend Wilkins damn near took the whole fest in my book...top 5 easy..and that Pendletons after hours show at the Buc was a different kind of religious experience entirely...mind blowing...

The pendletons always are...I've missed the last several gonerfests. It's a terrible feeling to know what you're missing. I will be there next year come hell or high water, even if I have to stowaway in someone's trunk!

That's good to hear, Windy. You're missed.
Seriously...are people that weren't here because of the "weak lineup" whining about how awful the fest was? And whining about the interwebs technical problems? Oh my.
I mean, really. What an undertaking! Goner spends a year planning and hoping your sorry ass has fun. You don't even come and then you whine! Dayum!

headlining Goner Fest XII?

Gonerfest was great....nice to see you robin.

Bruce had an Aussie bbq and that was fun as hell. Got to hang with Aussies and see the Bed Wettin' Bad Boys and that was awesome. Thanks for having me over to your home Bruce and Jeannie, It was great.

Thursday night was my overall favorite night. I kinda got to know Shogun from the Royal Headaches at the bbq and continued hanging with him at the Hitone. We watched Sex Cult and Hans Condor together and they DESTROYED. I mean both bands were just sick. He never said it but I could kind of tell that Shogun knew he had to step it up a notch. Holy shit, did they ever! Royal Headache killed it! They are a whole different animal live.

I took my son, Colby, Friday night. He' plays in a screamo band but he had some trouble with not really trying in school at the beginning of the year so I squashed it. I went and talked to his teachers and gave them my phone and email contacts to keep up with everything. Well, I had 4 emails and 2 phone calls telling how much he'd improved and gotten it together so I decided to take him to Gonerfest as a reward for turning it around.

Colby has been to a few arena shows and played three or four gigs. In Tupelo, MS that means playing in front of 40 people, most of them in other bands playing after you. He hadn't seen anything like Gonerfest I ended up taking him and Max, the bass player in his band, Friday night.

It blew their minds. Me and Colby have never seen eye to eye on music. That's cool, I can understand not liking the music your old man likes. Aquafuzz was great and by the time James Arthur's Manhunt hit the stage you could see the light bulb go off over his head. Him and Max were last seen playing along with my Mean Jeans record......my kids a Goner.

Gonerfest rules.
Posted: Sep 27, 2011 12:23 am
 
Quite possibly the most fun I've ever had, and I didn't think my first G'fest could be topped. Everyone is SO goddamn great down there...a total lovefest.

Yesterday eve we had unreal catfish and pork chops at Taylor's Grocery in MS, then drove back to Mempis on HWY 7 during the most insane and gorgeous lightning storm while WEVL played a Lightnin' Hopkins set...then we went to the Bucc and hung out with some of the finest Festers ever to Fest, Robin, Gina, Cort, Pam and Jeremy, and more...dancing to Greg O's killer selections. Then slept like babies and flew home today smiling.

When we got home, my Mom (who flew in to take care of my daughter) and kid were all smiles...and said, "Let's do this EVERY year!". Um...twist my arm!

Gonerfest rules. Indeed.

i get it because i might as well live halfway across the world for all the difference it makes. having enough money to go halfway across the country for a weekend to see some bands might as well be a million dollars for me, its impossible most years.

having lived in a forest for the last two years though i can say this: just because they cant guarantee shit doesnt mean they couldnt be charging for it. we have been charged for an unlimited internet plan for the last two years while our service has been active only 7-8 hours a day at best.

the intention to deliver a product online is enough to charge, they cant be responsible for every person because they have no idea what is the situation in your house. thats the way it is here, and i think if they wanted to, they could charge, and most customers would be reasonably satisfied.

when our internet didnt work 60-70% of the time or more over the last two years, we didnt get a refund or even let out of the contract!!! only after dozens of hours on the phone with corporate and overseas offices were we finally released from the contract, and they overcharged for services every single month.

while i agree the stream didnt work properly, on 4 out of my 5 internet capable devices anyways, goner didnt have an agreement or contract with you or anyone to do anything but ATTEMPT to provide content, and you are only losing that which you invested, your time.

at the same time, i totally agree "you didnt come" is not an answer, should we have hopped onto our magic carpets? not everyone has the ability to leave real life behind and indulge in cruising halfway around the world to take part in your happening.

personally i am thankful for anything at all...
Posted: Sep 27, 2011 3:18 am
 
but it is disappointing and irritating when shit works perfectly during the tests and then totally breaks down on the night of the gig... we should all be able to understand that sentiment. just because the stream worked great for you, that doesnt fix what happened on nannes end...

i think its obvious why it broke down, its because THE LORD GOD decided it would be so.

heathen goners had no problem with the stream, while the elect were unable to see lest their souls be tarnished...

BLIND FAITH, blind=unable to see, sightless, hidden from immediate view

(Hebrews 11:1) Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Hey Robin and Kyle,
I have a totally foolproof plan that will work perfectly for you guys next year. It will save you both time and energy that I know both of you guys could use because you're both running around on the edge of death the whole time any way. You will also have absolutely ZERO complaints about the FREE service (favor is probably a more apt word) you're attempting to provide for everyone. Here it is:

NEXT YEAR, DO NOT STREAM GONERFEST!

I can't believe the fucking audacity this stupid fuckwad has complaining.
Nanne, have you every heard the expression "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth"? The fact of the matter is that the streaming worked most places. Bradx is the only other person who's said it didn't work, and that was only on four out of his five computers. He also said that his connection was shaky at best. It sounds to me like the problem...is with you. Your connection sucks. Your computer sucks. You suck. Hell, it's probably Holland's fault. This is what you fucking get for trying to access the internet below sea level.
You don't like the Goner board. We're all posers. You don't like the Gonerfest line-up. The bands all suck. You don't like the streaming. Your computer sucks, and you don't know how to work it. Why are you even fucking here? Your life would be far better without us all.

Panty Knotter's streaming complaints make no fucking sense, nor does the sense of entitlement or righteous indignation.....it was a free service, yes? Provided by people that are working their asses off, outside of their full time regular jobs..that's like finding a shoebox in the road, and then complaining because it's not filled with money...you seem to be a bit rusty in the appreciation and manners department...let me refresh you...
When someone is busting their ass to help you, not expecting anything in return, and maybe things don't come out exactly as planned (and maybe consider the amount of things they're dealing with on your and other peoples behalf), appreciate the EFFORT ferchristsakes. And, I dunno, maybe consider, in a broader sense, what they've provided for you and the music "scene" in general over nearly the last decade, and not bitch like a little schoolgirl that just got her Barbies taken away..

First, I want to say what a great time I have every year.

Second, the stream is RSA's third and sometimes fourth priority at Gonerfest.

Third, I want to say what a great time I have every year.

Quickly, I can tell you there's many, many reasons why the stream may not have worked for some. In fact, I'm confident that at times it didn't work for anyone. I'll be explaining later, but I am ecstatic that it did work for quite a few. I can tell you this in summary, and so can anyone who has worked/played Gonerfest: sometimes, no matter how much planning you do, something will come up that you haven't thought of.
Posted: Sep 27, 2011 10:59 am
 
My only gripe is that Gonerfest hits the week the academic year seems to get under full swing, and you wouldn't believe the ammount of shit being thrown at me from all sides today. My endorphins are all shot.
Posted: Sep 27, 2011 11:39 am
 
Nanne, when the power goes out for the band and the PA, and something needs to be rigged up and quickly, Streaming becomes even lower on our priority list.
When it rains before a show that's outside, first priority is to find tarps to cover the PA and band gear when there weren't any before. After that, the priority becomes finding out what got wet and trying to get rid of the new ground loop than makes the singer's mic go "HUUUUUUUMMMMMMM" in the monitor ("o.k. it's better now; no, now it's on channel 11; what do you mean we've lost 6 channels on the board?").

I know "We meant well" ain't gonna do it for you. Like I said, I'll try to explain later. Right now I'm at work, sitting in a cubicle. I'm glad to have a job in this economy, so I think my priority now is to get back to work instead of getting bummed out.

Pick up gardening again Jack.

Will you quit talking so much shit about the Alarm Clocks? They rock. They sound like the band I'm in The Sidewalkers.
Posted: Sep 27, 2011 12:46 pm
 
I historically have joined village message boards so that I can find out about awesome jams and find a few friends to write some tunes with. So far I have been successful in every town I have lived in, including here.

Music has been intimately tied to culture and society since the dawn of civilization. So yeah, most people gather together and rock out because it brings them close, mentally/physically/emotionally. Pissing on that endlessly and complaining about a scene (a scene that you are thousands of miles from which entitles you to make asinine assumptions btw) just establishes you as the only actual hater in this thread.

If you just shoulda told me before
I would never have complained.
Or checked those tests.


Robin should have called you on his cellphone and soothed your ego while he was scrambling around trying to make shit work? For once, why don't you try to figure out the whole story before you publicly act the fool?

If you were able to spend $300 on computer tech help in four days, clearly you should be able to save enough in 11 1/2 months to just come here and see it live.

I can promise you i had no streaming problems listening to any of the bands.

Posted: Sep 27, 2011 1:42 pm
 
And furthermore: you think Jack is even too dumb to email?

Not too dumb, just too damn busy. You have absolutely no clue how fucking hard Jack and Luke work over the weekend. If you think that either has a moment to email you, explaining why there might be problems with YOUR stream, you're as naive as you are boring/an asshole. It's easy to comment/criticize sitting in another country not knowing jack-shit about what's going on behind the scenes. Those two dudes bust their ass all weekend and the thanks they get is your endless shitstream of needless complaining? Fuck you.


Anyway, it was another great year. Favorites include, Deaf Wish, Gories, Ty Segall, Royal Pendletons, Missing Monuments, meeting Portland folks (Pity Fucks, Rema and Mean Jeans folks rule) Shannon and the Clams, Tom Potter, Don Perry, Sharp Balloons, Curt & Lindsey, TSOT and the Rev. John Wilkins.

Is their a radder dude to party with than Chjad/Gary Wrong?

If Jack - o sorry, I mean Robin - put that info in the first post of this thread:

http://www.goner-records.com/board/index.php?action=vthread&forum=4&to pic=52572


put what info? Put that he was not going to devote 110% to the stream? Outlined his gonerfest itinerary in exhausting detail so that petulant internet strangers would know where he was going to be every second of every day? Or should he have predicted the future and forewarned you personally that he had other IRL responsibilities to deal with during the festival?

barf all this fighting and bitching.

gonerfest was excellent this year:) as it is every year-
they just get better and better!
THANKS eric and zac and hoppe - everyone else who works their asses off to make this happen!

robin kyle and jackson were working so hard too to try and get it out to the rest of the world- so i respect that fact :)

i had so much fun watching royal headache- i think i looked forward to seeing them and the gories the most
my other faves=
human eye(WOW way more intense than when they played tiny murphys)
obn III's - holy shit
deaf wish - i had no idea how amazing they really were gonna be live!
the shirks - they were fun fun - prostitution summer!
TSOT- out of the god knows how many times i've seen them this was THE BEST !
KLMM- they never fail to amaze me and i am super happy anytime they come
kitchens floor- got to watch the last half of their set and wish i coulda seen more
mean jeans - exactly what i wanted and needed
the preparties and after parties were great!
getting to see outta town friends always rules-
hanging with the aussies was super fun and trying to cram so many people in so many tiny cars was interesting
don perry brought out the animal in all of us on saturday night with that creepy ass old man mask(aka the 8th person in the car)

the only bad thing about the weekend is there was no pizza left at the hitone sunday morning for breakfast(of course there wasn't- dunno what i was thinking)

me joanna and johnny worked it out to where we could switch out working the table to get to see atleast some of the set of the bands we wanted to see at the daytime shows- i love them for that :)

It's easy to be critical of someone when you don't know what's going on "behind the scene." I'm talking about the Gonerfest IT Department as well as Nanne Tepper.

NT - It sucks that you have this problem and though you didn't have to be a dick about it, I understood there may have been things going on that compound frustrations beyond belief.

You obviously, very intensely give a shit, for whatever reason, about the music and / or Goner or just life in general or you wouldn't be so critical, pushing to get the best of everything in life and not settling for mediocrity for you and others in which you sees potential.

When I get off work I'll drink a great big whisky to you and all the people who push for the best.

I'll be explaining later

O.k. So, when we tested, it was with a solid connection, and only limited to times where we got home from work and could test. Solid connection 10 ft. away via wireless. I have great bandwidth from my house.
We also upgraded the server: new hardware, new OS, new software (came out a week before Gonerfest) three days before the shows.

So, at the gigs:
Wireless outside sucked. We litterally made cables on the fly and hooked up to any router we could get to. 100base-T is officially limited to 100 meters; we were less than that, but not by much, and certainly doesn't work as well with improvised Cat-5.
Had to change the bitrate on the fly a few times due to connection speed, and even more when "our man in the field" was having trouble.
When pushing a Meg per sec upstream, especially on janky connections, it's not a good idea to look at the internet, much less send e-mails. There are many technical articles on this, but simply, if you are trying to push water down a tapered hose, its a bad idea to insert something into the other end just to see if the water is coming out.
Finally, the real task of RSA is to record the bands. Additionally, we occasionally are the soundguy, too. Streaming is something we started doing a few years ago; only doing audio, then audio/video the next two years, using inferior software. People had to download all manner of plug-ins, etc. just to make it work with anything that wasn't Windows related. We got the last version of the software to correct with, and that's primarily what we tested with before. The latest version came out with promises to work in the Apple world, but just like any new software, it'll bee buggy for a few weeks (then watch the hot fixes roll in, after we spent even more to by the apple audio codec).
Then, when things go wrong, be it rain or over-blown circuits, we try to notify or help out as best we can. Sorry for the streaming folks, but the show is actually happening here and a lot of people came to see it.

If it's any consollation concerning our priority, our main recording rig crapped out the first night at the Hi-Tone, the power went down at the Buccaneer, the rain came Saturday and we almost ran out of microphones sharing two stages (thank you, benny! got us the extra mics just in time!) and we ended up getting the program off schedule Saturday for all the ground issues. So if it makes you feel better that you couldn't see the "third objective", well, we got a little busy.

Lastly, I am TRULY sorry it didn't work out for you, Nanne. Bazooka Joe and bradx, well, who cares (AM I RIGHT, FELLAS?!?!?). But, seriously, Nanne, I am sorry it didn't work for you. I've fought with you on this board for years now, and actually I thought we were kind of leaving that in the past. I knew your condition, and understood why you couldn't make it here. You were exactly the person I wanted to reach with this experiment. I made a complaint thread, specifically for me to chase down problems, but just couldn't get to it, except for at the Hi Tone (and by then it was too late).

HOWEVER: if you want to blame somebody, don't blame Goner or RSA, blame me. I got big shoulders, and I was the one who apparently got you interested in the first place.

Now, I'm going to start another thread about my Gonerfest Good Times. In all that bummer explanation, I need to say that staying busy is GREAT! I had an absolute blast.

This weekend was so cold...I was free balling it in some Levis 501 buttonflys and the draft was so bad my dick actually went inside itself. At first I was realy nervous and upset, I felt a little demasculated. But then I realized that it was the closest I will ever get to having my foreskin back. For a few minutes I felt like a newborn baby again. It was a rebirth of sorts...then I slowly massaged it in my hand and warmed it up and it slowly popped back out again. Then I washed my hands because I am courteous of my companions like that.

It all makes sense now.
Thanks!

I feel reborn! Sometimes you have to put yourself in a vulnerable, emasculated position to find true inner strength and new direction.

Beterrn the emasculation, questionable live feeds and whining, I feel like I have been reading the recounting of an evening of humiliation porn.

Wow. There's something I really didn't need to know about. What a sick fucking species we are.

The preference could be barefoot, high-heels, flip flops, converse and so on, depending on the fetishist.



Which one of you converse fetishists is into this shit? You're making us all look bad.

I signed a buddy of mine up for a trampling fetish newsletter. Its much like a crush fetish, I do believe.
I used his work email. He was none too pleased.
I, on the other hand, was quite amused.

No offense but Gonerfest kinda jumped the shark when they 86'ed Jay. He was right-it was like throwing Jimi Hendrix out of Woodstock. I miss him. (Even his comment about not wanting to get old after seeing a contemporary photo of me. He always had my back on the Goner Board.)
Posted: Oct 6, 2011 9:18 pm
 
They threw him out. I wasn't there. I just read about it. At least he was real. Now it's all "personal punk." Whatever that is.

I was there when Eric and Zac threw Chad out because he wouldn't solve a sample calculus problem for their upcoming "math punk" push which happened right before an unnamed source said "personal punk".

I bowed out for awhile...I'm not saying I was ever a "contender"...but for awhile shit got weird and I lost interest....people started taking things realy seriously...I just couldn't relate to it beyond nostalgia I focused on my own personal issues. I think I took it to seriously for most of the years leading up, but then again you had to because so many people back then thought you were a moron.

I mean when most of us first got into this music, the rest of the world was preoccupied with "Alternative" and no one realy gave a shit about a bunch of weird percieved-bottomfeeders. I was mostly laughed at in highschool and college for being into shit like The Gories....now people have reverence for me for knowing about this shit...it's stupid and pointless. Things have died down now, I'm in my thirties and I'm happier than ever, and I kind of feel more positive about music culture than ever before...there is no idiots to compete with...everything has leveled out.

Some folks believe that rock music is about youth culture and get all bummed about getting older...fuck all that shit, i never subscribed to that ethic....rock was always just about playing the blues or any good song for square white people and enjoying life until you die. When you die you die, it's not good or bad...it's just life...the whole idea of good or bad is all in your head anyway...everyone should be allowed to enjoy life, that's what needs to be protected...it doesn't take alot to enjoy life.

Maybe alot of folks out there in cyper space hate life now, those are a folks who were probbably spoiled at some time.
