    HUGE, insatiable fan here. Been listening to the new one non-stop for a couple of weeks now. You can hear me singing with Adam (and Ride's Mark Gardener) here: https://thejetage.bandcamp.com/track/come-lie-down. :) Can't wait to see 'em next week! -E

    I snapped some pics. Here's Jimmy's setup. Note…those are two different Whammys…and yes, that's a DS-1:

    That Crybaby in the middle of Jimmy's setup....he kept stepping on the back of it, over and over and over.....thought it a bit odd.

    I see a Whammy, not a Crybaby, and heel down is "no effect."-E

    I thought the first couple of "singles" relatively mellow, but they re-recorded "Deep Wound" so it's more rocking and the rest of the record is largely kick ass. I dunno--I love it! Emotionally it's not as intense ...

    This might be my fave ... :) -E

    Yeah, I'm liking this one better than the first. Hard to tell what the album will be like. It seems a bit more subdued than previous efforts, but don't want to jump to conclusions based on just a small sampling.

    I like them both quite a bit. I hear a lot of dirt in both songs, almost a throwback to the production of Raise, only minus the reverb. Adam is criminally underrated as a songwriter. Very original and a great sense of melody. He's been so prolific in his solo years and still going strong with new Swervedriver material. The last Swervedriver release was as good as anything they've ever done.

    I really liked the last album. I'm not sure I would put it on the same level as Mezcal Head or Raise, but it was filled with excellent stuff.

    I might be the only Swervedriver fan who isn't really a fan of Adam Franklin's solo stuff. I think he's a good songwriter, but his songs greatly benefit from the extra noise textures and melodic interplay that Hartridge brings to the mix.
