After a wicked weekend of substantial partying and important bands, playing a show and good freinds, all I can say is..."Hell Yeah" (In Cody's creepy redneck voice) I'm running now on a combined total of 7 hours sleep this weekend. So here is the wrap up.

1. Sorry to the dude upstairs that threatens to call the cops everytime I remotely have a party. ( God forbid you just come over and have a fucking beer!)

2. To The Dandy Warhols, Hoyotoho and Hopewell..................great great great great shows!!!

3. To James can still seriously party, regardless of your present line of work.

4. To Nick...thanks for letting The Funny Leg and I crash your place.. Champagne and a bologne sandwich have never been so good together.

5. To everyone that hung with us this weekend, we should probably do the same things in about five days.
And of course thanks to everyone who came out to see THE ORANGE in Denton Friday night!

This weekend is going to be the absolute best! On Friday night THE ORANGE plays with HOYOTOHO at the Boiler Room in Denton and then on Saturday we are all heading to the Granada Theater to see The Dandy Warhols! So if you haven't already check out these two awesome bands you should do so fast!




THE ORANGE @ TREES, November 5th, 2010

Thanks to everyone who came out to our show last weekend at Trees! THE ORANGE had one of the biggest draws of the night! Also I just want to say that Air Review, Radiant and God's Joke were totally awesome to play with and all really cool cats. It was definately one of the funnest shows I have ever played. Special thanks again to Nick Metzger for throwing the after party and buying the champagne. See you soon!

Mr. Paul Levins (currently of Portland) says:

Wow Scott, I'm flabbergasted that someone as passionate about music as you managed to whittle you list down to 11; that couldn't have been easy. I tried to distill my album collection (1,000s) into 10 desert island records, and I damn near had a panic attack. A list of my top 20 just gave me a headache. So, in lieu of attempting once more this task that has proved impossible, I would like instead to offer you a different list: my favorite album from each year in the (IMO) greatest decade for rock and roll, the 1970s.

1970: The Doors - Morrison Hotel
1971: Led Zeppelin IV
1972: David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
1973: Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
1974: Tom Waits - The Heart of Saturday Night
1975: Bob Dylan - Blood on the Tracks (Possibly my favorite song from the whole decade was released this year as well, Foghat's extended jam "Slow Ride" off the phenomenal Fool for the City.)
1976: Steve Miller Band - Fly Like an Eagle
1977: Iggy Pop - Lust for Life
1978: The Rolling Stones - Some Girls
1979: Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers - Damn the Torpedoes

And to round it out to an odd 11, my favorite album of all time is Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea. I've never listened to Hi-Fi Drowning, but I just ordered a used copy from Amazon ($2.99 after shipping, btw) on the strength of the one song I could track down, "The Saint's Id." I can't wait to hear the rest of it!

Scotts response:

Yep, I have to say those are all pretty bad ass albums, Steve Miller is definately a favorite of mine. In that particular album I really like the syth stuff. I really need to check out that Tom Waits album. Funny becuase most of the albums you listed Mary and I have on vinyl. Hell Yea

Scott's top 10 Albums of all Time:

 I have had a few good freinds lately on facebook ask what my top albums of all time (most influential on me) are so I thought I would make it official on The Orange's new blog. So Paul Levins, this one is for you!

1. The Orange "a sonic collection of short..."  ha ha  just we go for real.

1. Nirvana, Nevermind

2. Hi-Fi Drowning, Rounds the Rosa (absolutely brilliant album)

3. Pink Floyd, Darkside of the Moon

4. Tripping Daisy, I'm an elastic firecracker

5. Dandy Warhols. Thirteen tales from urban Bohemia

6. Brian Jonestown Massacre, Give it Back

7. Foo Fighters, Self Titled

8. Incubus, Make Yourself

9. Toadies, Rubberneck

10. The Beatles, pretty much all of them

11. Deftones, Around the Fur

I know I listed 11, but those are albums that I continue to listen to pretty regularly. Especially Hi Fi Drowning's Rounds the Rosa. That album is rare, ellusive, hard to find and I buy every copy of it I find and have for the past 5 years. You may be able to download it on Amazon or on their myspace. Honestly if I lost my copies, I would be willing to pay $1000 for another. It's that good.
See you at Trees Friday Night!

Cymbals are ridiculously expensive!

A few weeks ago I cracked a cymbal that I used for the last 12 years! and for the last month I've been trying to save up money to buy a new one, but if you're 20 years old and all you do is spend money on beer and prostitutes then you know how difficult it is. But hey whatever... The point is I magically I got the cash and I'm on my way to buy one and The ORANGE is going to rock Trees this Friday! See you there!!
