Corin Tucker Band

Corin Tucker on "Jesus Etc.": On the One Beat tour, I remember driving, and that's all Carrie [Brownstein] and Janet [Weiss] would listen to [laughs]. My god, that record played over and over and over again. We would just drive to the next show and listen to that record. We all loved it, and we didn't always agree on what to listen to in the van.

Pitchfork: Was there anything else that all three of you would agree on?

Corin: We all liked to listen to Led Zeppelin. We would just go through the whole catalog [laughs]. We all liked that. We all liked Belle & Sebastian. [5-10-15-20]

Sleater Kinney's Corin Tucker will be touring with Sara Lund of Unwound and Seth Lorinczi of Golden Bears (aka The Corin Tucker Band) in support of Corin's debut, 1,000 Years, due October 5th on Kill Rock Stars. A picture of the band is below.

They hit the road this October. The trip includes a Tuesday, October 26th show at Bowery Ballroom with Portland's Hungry Ghost. Tickets are on sale. All dates below.

Corin talked to the Portland Mercury about the sound of the new record...

How would you describe the sound of the record, particularly in comparison to Sleater-Kinney?

I think some of the songs are in the ballpark. It's definitely my voice and my songwriting style. But like I said, it's different instrumentation on some of the songs and a different collaboration. Seth's producing and arranging things, so that's different, too. It may be more traditional with some of the arrangements. [via Sleater-Kinney.net]

That's the cover above. All tour dates, tracklist and some Corin solo videos are below...

I love Corin Tucker, but that version of "Hunger Strike" is TERRIBLE.

I really hope this album turns out good...if not I guess there's always the hope of a SK reunion

Over/Under on S-K reunion in 2012?

"I love Corin Tucker, but that version of "Hunger Strike" is TERRIBLE."

That's not a surprise considering she was the bad singer in S-K.

they only broke up a few years ago. give them until at least 2015 for the reunion.

Posted by Anonymous | July 29, 2010 2:25 PM

they never broke up and always said they'd play shows again. sleater-kinney left off on top and i'm sure they'll reclaim it in a few years. excited for the albums all three ladies having coming out in the next few months!

hasn't everyone seen S/K a million times already anyway? for about 10 years there they seemed to be touring pretty much non-stop. it was actually kind of hard NOT to see them.

I heard some tracks from the Corin record... pretty freakin' great... sort of a weirder trippy S-K

Over/under on what percentage of hipster commenters on this board now think "Phillies Signed Roy Oswalt" is the name of some obscure dance-punk band?

Posted by Thierry Ennui | July 29, 2010 3:47 PM

They traded for him, idiot.

This is just full of retarded statements. As per usual.

Didn't they play Roseland at one point? The last show at Webster Hall was pretty good.

I suspect they might eventually do a one-off show or two, but not a tour.

If she lost 40 lbs., she would be in the hospital. And fuck off.
