(Re-up) Haberdasher - Songs on Love Nos. 48602-48608

1997. Slint is gone and they are never (uh, well, probably) coming back. Indie rock musicians, human like any other artist, cannot help but to be influenced by their own contemporaries and idols. Plenty of bands borrowed the syncopated rhythms, tension-release dynamics, and minimal vocal signatures of Spiderland for their own creations. Some became arguably better known in their own time, e.g. Engine Kid, June of 44, A Minor Forest. Others rarely made a splash beyond their own three-day weekend tour radius. (See also: Shale).

I never even heard of Haberdasher until a friend gave me this LP as a gift, i.e. he didn't like it and the used record store around the corner wouldn't take it. His loss was my gain - I got more than my money's worth, anyway.

If you recognize the other bands already namedropped here, you can probably hum a few bars and come pretty close to the sound of this record. Nowadays, Haberdasher are probably best known as the previous band for one of the dudes in Oxes.

Wow funny to look at your blog and see my old band. This was a long time ago. I wasn't even in the band when this was recorded. You hit our influences right on the nose.

Till now. The Podmaster looked up at the tile lying on the ceiling.She grasped wildly at her courage, and moved slowly up the hallway.Military radio transmissions were heard from Arachna less than one day after the Relight, even while steam-storms churned the surface.On your wedding day you re going to want to find just the right wedding underwear to accentuate the curves you already have, or fake the ones you don?t, and hide any flaws that you may not want to be seen.Are you going to be okay, Trud?
I wrote this book because I felt there was a need for it three needs, in fact.It would be quick.To Pham Nuwen, that was only fitting.. .hell, Hrunkner, you deserve to know.But then what about the localizers? Trinli had revealed their secret to Tomas Nau, and that secret had increased Nau s power a hundredfold.She had always seemed a tough little cobblie, but with a piece of Sherkaner s whimsy.We used more fuel in those operations than in all the rest of the War put together.She slipped into her seat beside him and resumed looking at the new diffs.

: pale-skinned, reddish-haired, with cold, killing eyes.The Spiders breed in large clutches, and then Mother Nature kills off the weak ones during the Dark.

Man, I loved this band and saw them live a lot. they got real good once Nate from the OXES joined on board to play bass. They did a "THIS HEAT" cover before they broke up and it was awesome and I even heard they even recorded it at a studio at UMBC. Man I'd love to get my ears on that. Kinda sux that towards the end the members just seemed like they could care less that they were a good band. Some bands just end badly and abrupt i guess. I think all the members wanted to go way further out with music and maybe HABERDASHER was too confined for them.
