Welcome to the web site for Silkworm (1987-2005).

22 DEC 1965 - 14 JULY 2005
I know it's hard to believe but I've already got something to
say! That's because I got an email from Andy saying this:
"The John Lee Experience (actually, he's decided to call it "Mirroramerica" despite my repeated suggestions that we call it "Yellow Stallion")
with me [Andy Cohen] on guitar will have its first show at the
Asian American Film Festival Rock Show 2000 event. Its March 31 at the Beat Kitchen."
That's the John Lee, I'll have you know. The Beat Kitchen is at 2100 W.
Belmont in Chicago. If you get lost, don't panic! Instead, call
the club at 773-281-4444.
Oh, this too: you've got to read Sean Nelson's SKWM review in The Stranger. It will make you feel like you've come to the right place.
Now don't get any big ideas, this is just for fun and we probably
already know what the record's called and maybe this doesn't matter
at all, but some wacko has posted a list of possible titles for the next record which you can vote
for. Some of them are pretty funny. Ha! Ha! Funny! So you may visit
that place if you like.
I think I've covered everything, but it's been awhile so I thought
I'd check in. This thing has been crashing some lately - have
you noticed? It'll be going along like a real champ, then all
of a sudden it'll stop going along. I don't know why - I don't
blame myself because it is not my fault, it is someone else's
fault! It's the goddamned hackers, that's who it is! WHERE'S THE
FUCKING FBI? THESE BASTARDS NEED TO BE STOPPED!!!
I already mentioned we're playing a rock show, right? Now I forget
when it is, the 17th of March or something. No! It's the 23rd
of March, or something, at the Crocodile. Hold on.... It's on
the 23rd of March! I already mentioned that, I know, but what else is going on?
NOTHING! So I thought I'd mention it again.
Our new record sounds good. You'll be happy to hear it. Ha-ha!
I am going to milk it and milk it until it's released, because
I've got nothing else to talk about! Can I keep it going for 6
months? YES YES YES!!
I'll have to think of other things to write about if I want to
keep you interested. Oh: did everyone look at the Pandemonium pictures? They're admirable. They make us look like we know what we're
doing! What could be better?
Okay, more later. I'll put something up here worth putting up
here sometime in the next little while. I promise!
Did you notice the Y2K bug on the message board? HA HA HA that
was funny. It's fixed now though so don't get too excited.
I have to tell you all the things I didn't tell you before. And
I have to do it while I'm cooking dinner, and before I go to Joel's
show out in Ballard. And I've been promised a party afterwards
filled with Cuban girls who want to be in the movies, if you know
what I mean, so I've got high hopes. But I mustn't burn the rice!
Okay, dinner is through. Whether or not I'll make it to Ballard
is anyone's guess, but I think I'm going to try.... Ha! Right.
Never mind, it's late. These damned little projects. The trouble
is, I finally got the tour journal up-to-date. Now I don't have to do a thing to it until March
23rd! Because that's when we're playing with Cobra Verde and the Downer Trio at the Crocodile. I hadn't mentioned it yet, but I think it's high time. It'll
be a shoe-poopin' good time!
So the real news is that we've recorded a new record. We finished
it in Chicago last time we were there - in early December - and
Tim and Steve mastered it at Abbey Road in late December or early
January or something. It sounds good. Where's my damned CD? If
I had it I'd record a little and put it up here, but I don't have
it. I'll track it down - actually, I think we just got the mastered
version back from Touch&Go, so maybe I'll get one of those tomorrow. I am sure that you
will like the record. It has some golden moments. It is supposed
to come out in June. We still don't know for sure what it's going
to be called; if you have any grand ideas, let us know.
I have to go now. Really I do. I know I will not make it to Ballard
tonight. I am on a budget!
I hope you like the fancy new look. I accidentally erased some
funny shit trying to make this new look. I'll try to come up with
some funny shit later to make up for it.
Oh - the message board works now. I don't know if anyone noticed,
but it was fucked up for a while. Isn't it nice that I have this
little project, and I can break things and fix them and stay busy?
I feel like a retired couple.
