A couple of clips have popped up with 'final show' on them, not that that's anything to go on. I assume this is the end of the show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxaJgfjx540

I was there. I've seen SY live several times, this show was definitely NOT one of their best performances. You could cut the air with a knife, the vibe was totally heavy between the band. None of the band members' eyes met the entire time, except for the guitar swordfight moment. Before the show, Kim was seen alone behind the stage drinking whisky.

I do not want to remember my favourite band's last performance like that... So tense...

I didn't say there was anything enigmatic about that. My emphasis was on the fact that she was seen by herself most of the time before the show. Not that it means anything. It's actually none of mine or your business. All I hope is that everyone in the band is doing good in their lives.

Any sources?

Purely from those videos it does seem tense. And there's something about Thurston sitting on the drum riser right at the end in a pensive manner looking at the crowd for a while which seems ominous. Hmm.

No, like I said they are idiots and make things up.
I saw all the footage from back stage it's true that they weren't even talking to each other.

forgetmeknots 11.15.2011 08:46 AM

And a reliable source told me that "Lee won't ever play with them again", that seems to be the situation at this point. I cannot help but wonder what could've happened to make them not even talk to one another. It is really fkn sad.

knox 11.15.2011 09:01 AM

Yeah, I want the gossip.
I was hoping for a Fleetwood Mac kind of thing.

OK, I'm a gearhead junkie and I can't help to notice on these vids:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBTk9fu_fN0

On Brave Men Run/DV'69 Lee is playing what appears to be a new/different telecaster, I've never seen him play a Telecaster Custom before (its definitely a custom because I have one), it has a single coil in the bridge and the wide range bucker in the neck position, he usually plays tele deluxes which have 2 WR humbuckers... also the customs have traditional tele headstocks and deluxes have the fatter strat style ones and Thurston's sunburst jazzmaster for these songs looks different/new? it has two knobs, they've been hotrodding all these guitars w/ only a volume knob for some time now...

Kim's jazzmaster in Calming the Snake (@ 17:52)? looks sorta like her J Mascis custom Jazzmaster but it has a black body or is it just the lighting? again this one has two knobs and a jazzmaster pickup in the neck and humbucker in the bridge, is this a "blacktop series" jazzmaster?

Now this is getting weird, Thurston's primary "CGDGCD" beaten black sticker-laden jazzmaster is used on Mote? ...the tuning is very different, his tuning for Mote is GGDDD#D#.

Ok more new/different guitars on 'Cross the Breeze (@ around 25:00), Lee is playing what looks to be a new looking blue musicmaster w/ WR humbuckers, and Thurston is playing another black w/ red pickguard jazzmaster but it also looks brand new, upper horn electronics taped over and also without those pot modifications as they have volume and tone knobs...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRI-O8nG2s8

What the??? Thurston w/ another new looking black w/ red pickguard jazzmaster on Schizophrenia, looks identical to the one used in 'Cross the Breeze...

Lee is playing a new looking tele deluxe thats red? w/ black pickguard on Starfield Road, and then on Flower (@16:15) an all black telecaster with 2 - WR humbuckers

looks like Thurston's vintage sunburst jazzmaster used during the "Rather Ripped" tour is back and tuned for Sugar Kane/Teenage Riot.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qd50ZSORf_8


The band has new/different equipment and their future is uncertain??? ...maybe these are rented guitars?

Moshe 11.15.2011 10:53 AM

in order to play all of the shows on the recent south american tour sy had
to take 2 teams of guitars to s america. an 'A' team and a 'B' team of
guitars, basses, and various drum items.
the 2 teams of equipment were sent to different cities on the tour.

it was virtually impossible to get the 'A' team to every show so the 'B'
team was used when the 'A' team was being shipped to the following show.

sort of leap-frogging like stadium bands do w/ their stages, etc.

Wow, Moshe you always have the goods! where/how did you find this out?
I guess it makes sense, but it sounds quite expensive $$$ to have done to ensure there are not any issues.
So it seems that they had to purchase new guitars in order to do this.

At one point of the show in Lima,Thurston was sitting in a side of the stage in the same maner
