Scott Kelly

The Aquarian: What do you have coming out this year?

Wino: ...Premonition, this band I've been working with for... Well, I've known the one guy for 20 years and we never did anything, finally decided to make a record. And they liked the demos, so they said they'd put it out. We did a single, and we're right in the process right now of mixing a full-length.

Are Shrinebuilder going to do another record this year?

Wino: Yeah, we are. We're starting to get the songs ready. The songs are written. That's one good thing that came out of that volcano, actually. We couldn't get over to Europe, and it's the only time we all had together, so we all went to L.A., to the rehearsal room, and basically fleshed out the record. We played one part of it on this last tour we did, but yeah. It's gonna be cool. It's gonna be heavy as hell.

Actually, it's fucking really fucking heavy. Kelly's writing some amazing stuff, and we're all collaborating. He's a great guitar player. He won't tell you that he is, but he's a great guitar player. He may not be Yngwie Malmsteen but he knows the power of a song and delivery for sure.

Scott Kelly, Wino (and Scott Kelly with Wino) were the main attractions at Saturday's Mercury Lounge show (2/12), as the Neurosis/Saint Vitus frontmen each played respective sets before collaborating on stage together. The pair of underground legends were joined by NYC folk faves Man's Gin (who covered Cobalt's "Dry Body"!), and Hunter Hunt-Hendrix of Liturgy who started the show.

Both Man's Gin and Liturgy have shows next week: Man's Gin plays Union Pool on 2/23 with Religious To Damn, Greg Peterson (Batillus), and Oscar Albis Rodriguez (GHOST ROBOT NINJA BEAR, ex-Nakatomi Plaza) and Liturgy plays 285 Kent Ave on 2/25 with Talk Normal.

More pictures from Mercury Lounge are below, including some video of Scott Kelly, Wino, the collaboration, and Man's Gin's cover of "Dry Body"...

They didn't get any pics of cinder block guy unfortunately.

^LOL. The fucking cinder block guy- what a douche. Slapping away on the block throwing Kelly off the rhythm forcing him to re-start the song. "I was just trying to be cool", was his reponse as he relinquished the block center stage. Then he loudly yaks away to a less then thrilled Wino on the side of the stage. Scott Kelly finally tossed him saying, "I don't want to hear your voice anymore." Embarrassing night out for the cinder dude.

Why are Scion so desperate to advertise to the metal crowd?

Is this 'cinder block' dude the same guy from the Bastard Noise show month ago?

Posted by PAZ | February 14, 2011 9:28 PM

cinder guy was high- so what? lame ass excuse. the crowd was extremely respectful and pin drop quiet. scott k even said how much he appreciated the huge respect/love. then came that arhythmic white boy trying to find his long lost groove. it was a great laugh for people near the stage but scott was NOT amused at all.

Scott (or anyone else), what was the song between the covers of "Isolation" and "Wharf Rat"? Second to last song?

"Liturgy guy" did a set of hypnotic processed vocals/chants.
