DOWNLOAD: Shudder to Think - Hit Liquor (live) (MP3)

Shudder to Think @ Webster Hall in 2008 (more by Tim Griffin)
Shudder to Think

As previously mentioned, Shudder to Think are playing a show at Bowery Ballroom in NYC TONIGHT (9/2) with Pattern Is Movement and Blame The Patient. Tickets are still available, and I have a pair to giveaway (details below). Why should you go to this show? Two good reasons are:

  1. Bowery Ballroom is smaller than Webster Hall
  2. This will be the last Shudder to Think show.... for now anyway, or for the foreseeable future, or possibly forever (they won't commit to that last part, but they say they have no plans at the moment to keep it going.) (I obviously feel insecure about repeating the claim, but the email was titled "Shudder To Think Play Final Show in NYC on Sept 2")
They reunited at the end of 2007 and went on to play a bunch of shows in 2008 (including at Bowery and then at Webster Hall). On September 15th they're releasing a live album on Team Love. Two never-before-seen pro-shot live videos, and contest details, below...

I shudder to think that TWENT WEZNOR is going to show up and hang upside down while singing "Head Like A Hole."

Are they just trying to sell more tickets to a show that's undersold?

Nathan, why were you not there? Show did not hold a candle to last year's show?

John Fogerty played plenty of CCR last night, but the show was billed as "John Fogerty" not "Creedence Clearwater Revival". It's not the same band.

Shudder made great records when Nathan was in the band, and they made great records before he was in the band. I was glad to see Chris Mathews get up and play with them. I suppose someone could make the case that when Nathan plays with them it isn't really STT because Chris Matthews isn't there. Whatever. This isn't a "John Fogerty" situation at all.

Nah, it's just that Nathan's playing is unique, angular, aggressive and fills out the music. The touting guitarist forgot parts and wasn't as interesting.

For that matter, Kevin March isn't as interesting as the original drum parts on the old stuff, but hey, they sounded great, were tight, Craig's beautiful and thank S2T for giving us another chance to share.
