Bill Callahan / Smog discussion thread

I like the mix of dread and theatre in much of this. It’s like he was having a vampire of New Orleans phase.

Lol, just checked, Interview with a Vampire came out the same year so this might be the most accurate observation I’ve ever made.

Man, everytime i listen to River Guard i get transported back to the first time i ever heard it. Don’t think there’s many albums that close the gap on my first and most recent listen the way Knock Knock does.

This was the first I ever saw/heard it. Still return to it all the time.

Oh man, i forgot about this video!

Was quite miserable yesterday, and inspired by this thread being bumped spent basically the whole evening listening to him.

Don’t know anyone else whose voice comforts me and reassures me as much, which is a bit odd given so much of his stuff isn’t exactly a barrel of laughs. Dunno what I’d do without him.

His voice does seem to contain whole worlds doesn’t it?

Can’t believe how hard it is to find tour details in the year of our lord 2022 but there are Manchester and Bristol dates too (Albert Hall and SWX respectively).

Same night as Kendrick ffs.

Kinda tempted to see if I can switch to see Kendrick at another venue given all the arenas he’s doing will be fairly interchangeable, whereas Bill at the Brude will be something special (watch them upgrade it once I do this)

Will go to Roundhouse because that’s nearest to me and easiest travel, but damn that Brudenell show is definitely going to be a special one.

Albert Hall on a saturday it is then

Pretty rare Albert Hall will feel like a downgrade on another venue on the tour tbf.

Ireland please Bill

Hope its gonna be a good one. Feel like 2009 wa speak bill gigging for me, seen him a few times since and been quite bored. And yet, I’ll almost certainly go to this
