Here's the new official video (I think) for Love Drug:
http://vimeo.com/43165829

and here's also a couple videos of their show in Eindhoven last Sunday, in great quality as well:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syRe-haLGsI&feature=plcp
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Di10ePkfeJk&feature=plcp

The Effenaar show was better as well as longer as their set at Ekko's the day before. And the support act was way better as well. If you ever have a chance to catch, or join even, Peter J Taylor Big Band, go see them. There were three drum kits and about 25 guitars going Branca, all local musicians except for Mr Taylor. They had only practiced for half an hour, but it sounded great.
Unfortunately I didn't tape them, my recorder crapped out... But I did tape both Disappears sets and will be uploading them to Dime shortly. Also taped Kleinindustrie's set at Effenaar (but not at Ekko).

Major news from Chicago's favorite reverb-friendly garage jammers, Disappears—the band has parted ways with Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley due to scheduling conflicts. Singer-guitarist Brian Case tells Gossip Wolf that the split was amicable, and the evidence bears him out—this winter Shelley's label, Vampire Blues, will release a collaboration that Disappears recorded with local droners White/Light in 2008. Drummer about town Noah Leger (Electric Hawk, Anatomy of Habit) will replace Shelley behind the kit—he makes his debut with the band on Sat 9/8 at the Dust Up, a one-day mini festival hosted by Big Star (1531 N. Damen) in the restaurant's parking lot. Among the other acts are Andre Williams & the Goldstars and Old Baby; starting at noon there's also a record fair, with goods from the Numero Group, Kranky, Bloodshot, and more.

WHOA, nooooo... With SY in limbo/grave, one would think there would be no scheduling conflicts (no major ones, anyway) between Steve and Disappears. Steve really propelled the band to reach a turbotronic level on Pre Language... I do not care for this shit news at all!

I found a studio version of this tune on youtube. Does anyone know when/where/what release this was on? As far as I knew it was never recorded.
Would love to have whatever album they released this on.

Here's the latest blog post from Disappears:
No news about the Collaborative LP with Disappears and White/Light, nor if this still features Steve (I assume it doesn't though). When you click on the link to their store, it mentions that their new full length called Era will be released in the Fall of 2013 on Kranky.

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Here's a new blog by Disappears, with news of yet another release. Sadly Steve is replaced by a drum machine.....

A NEW HOUSE IN A NEW TOWN



FRIENDS - BELIEVE IT OR NOT WE'VE GOT ANOTHER RELEASE AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY. SLEEPERHOLD PUBLICATIONS IN BELGIUM INVITED US TO COLLABORATE WITH PHOTOGRAPHER STINE SAMPERS ON THIS 12" - OUR MUSIC ON ONE SIDE AND HER ETCHED PHOTO'S ON THE OTHER. IT'S BEAUTIFUL AND WE'RE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT IT. ORDER HERE - SLEEPERHOLD SAYS:

"Disappears" with their release called "A New house in a New Town".
Chicago's Disappears are Brian Case (also of the Ponys and 90 Day Men), Jonathan van Herik, Damon Carruesco and Noah Leger. Their latest album "Pre-Language", released on Kranky records, features Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley on the drums. Disappears' druggy, rythmic rock music has often been compared to Neu!, Spacemen 3 or Jesus and Mary Chain at their noisiest.

This output features the demo versions of 2 new songs and a rework of "Love Drug",from their acclaimed last album "Pre-Language", recorded in a single track at their rehearsal space The material could not be more unpolished and this rawness only adds to the magic of the songs. The blown-open sound and potential of these versions is enormous. Brian's barked, deadpan vocals remind of The Fall's Mark E. Smith, while the music shivers on. The drumming on this release is taken care of by a drumcomputer, adding a dry rhythm to underline the repetitive nature of the 3 songs. Disappears' haunting basslines, monotone singing and shivering guitarsound are just enough to convey the mood of 21th century suburbia, with its nihilism and loneliness, the perfect soundtrack for hazy nights. In a unique blend of krautrock, minimalism and garage the group evocates desolation, despair and catharsis. This record seems to build up to an explosion that never seems to arrive. Their smoggy, narcotic sound makes everything come to a stop and builds up in a dynamic thrust, only to stop again. This is truly a thrilling release. Disappears' interplay between tention and release is seamless and compelling.

------

The etched artwork on the b-side of this vinyl was done by Belgian photographer Stine Sampers. The diptych she created, captures the mood of the music so perfectly one could see it as the 4th song of the album. Samper's pictures seem to dissect the beauty of the empty, simple moments within the human lifespan. Her pictures capture the hidden self of her subject. It seems as if the spectator is allowed to gaze into a world that's completely indifferent to his/her presence. Her work is highly personal, helping her cope with love, loss and regret.

But Sampers doesn't just register. By taking a picture Sampers builds a visual narrative around the subject, similar to a diary entry. They often speak of despair or desillusion, as often as they evoke happiness. There is no in-between in Samper's work.
