Shudder to Think Still Reunited
So it's starting to look like the recent Shudder to Think shows in New York were, in fact, a precursor to an honest-to-goodness reforming of the band. I use the word "reforming" because it doesn't look like Stuart Hill is going to take part, and they're playing with Kevin March on drums instead of Adam Wade or Mike Russell.
The band is playing on the Sunday of V-Fest up in Baltimore. Still not sure if I'm gonna make that or not, so hopefully we'll get a fuller tour later in the year, including a homecoming show here in D.C. The idea of finally getting to see a band I first fell in love with 16 years ago (but never saw) in their hometown is pretty freakin' cool.
And speaking of Larson and March, what ever happened to Hot One? I really like the songs on their website ("Sexy Soldier" could easily have been a late-period STT tune), but can't remember ever seeing their CD or any tour dates listed anywhere. WTF?
Edited to add: Apparently they released a full-length in mid-2006. How did I miss that?
Some STT classics:
"Funeral at the Movies" (live at the old 9:30 Club)
"I Blew Away" and "Shake Your Halo Down" (live at All Souls Church)
