Killdozer

Killdozer are back (for now), and this past Sunday, November 2nd, they played a NYC show at Knitting Factory with openers Hunchback (from New Brunswick) and Awesome Color. Two days later (yesterday) they played a live set on Brian Turner's show on WFMU. Listen to that at WFMU's site.

Killdozer only have one more scheduled show left, and it will be in Austin this weekend at Fun Fun Fun Fest. More KF pictures and the setlist (Neil Diamond cover included) below...

And on WFMU:

On a landmark day for the country, Brian welcomes the midwestern band that makes his heart swell with American pride like no other. Birthed in Madison, Wisconsin in 1982, Killdozer sludged through such classic LPs as "Snakeboy", "Burl", "For Ladies Only", and "Twelve Point Buck" before calling it quits in 1996. They returned briefly for Touch and Go's 25th label anniversary bash, and have graciously agreed to perform (and put you in your Election Day mindset) today on WFMU. Michael Gerald: Vocal, bass, Bill Hobson: guitar, Dan Hobson: drums.

Songs: Cotton Bolls / Cyst / Lupus / King of Sex / I Am, I Said (Neil Diamond) / Sonnet / New Pants and Shirt / Live Your Life Like You Don't Exist / Gates of Heaven / (Interview) / Sweet Home Alabama (Lynard Skynard).

I saw Killdozer in Orlando in 1998 or 1999. Is this not included in the WFMU bio?

Hunchback was horrible. What a bunch of schlocky hipster pricks.

Awesome Color kicked ass and with only 5-strings. They usually kick ass live though.

Killdozer was really really awesome. I saw them at the Touch and Go 25th a couple of years ago. That was a little better but not much.

Yeah, I remember Killdozer as sounding powerfully awesome. And the singer/bassist was standing on a chest the whole time, in front of a really tall mic stand.

I thought the whole show was pretty awesome, including Hunchback.

I remember going to see Killdozer in '83 when they were doing $3 shows at the Club de Wash
Apart from the extra pounds and some grey hair not much has changed
"Richard" from 12 Point Buck, the set opener, is just as applicable today as it was when it came out
Same great sense of humor played to a slow, grinding, slaughterhouse death beat
Nothing like seeing the real thing up close and personal

the thing that most struck me about killdozer was that they seemed like super great guys. even when attempting to be menacing.

awesome color are really talented and have a great coherent sound.

hunchback were fun :)

oh also - my theory that only people who truly rock wear black jeans - upheld!
