The reissue is looking amazing, we had the original artwork rephotographed and rebuilt after it had been sitting in dank storage and getting moved and banged around so it’s kind of battered and gnarly and looks great. The first bunch of LPs will be sold on special orange vinyl (Sub Pop’s patented ‘LOSER’ edition, but also available through You’ve Changed), and all the records are pressed from a newly cut vinyl master that sounds totally beauty. Also, all copies of the record comes with a special bonus 7inch that has the first ever vinyl pressings of the b-sides from the Nighttime/Anytime and Young Lions CD singles.
We’re totally excited this is happening and that we’ll have this for the shows this summer and fall.
Bonus 7inch tracklist:
Thank You For Sending Me An Angel (Talking Heads cover)
Raw Youth (Royal City cover)
Hotline Operator (2003) (a trippy jam that is totally distinct from the Tournament of Hearts tune)
I found these in the back of the Music Man as I was cleaning it out to lend to Darcy for the Ladyhawk 10th anniversary shows. Doug, with his photographic memory for dates, places, faces, and details, may remember what shows these were from, but I sadly can offer no such info. T.S. = Thunderstruck?
One of many many shows with Oneida; shows all over the world. All arounder. This one was in Guelph, ON.
On March 3, 2001 we played at HQ skate shop in Cambridge ON. Will wasn’t in the band yet, but he played at the show. He had a song that said something about “my girlfriend works at the radio station/that’s how this song is in heavy rotation”. (Sorry if i’m getting that wrong Will – it was a long time ago!) Dallas and I grew up in Cambridge and there was never much happening and I remember thinking there would be nobody at the show but as we turned the corner onto Ainslie St. we saw a big group of kids smoking in front of the shop, smoking and hanging and ready to rock and roll. There was lots of screaming and yelling and somewhere in the middle we played St. You.
From one March 3rd to another…. – Steve
