I was absolutely blown away when I saw you all at the Troubadour. It was everything I could have ever asked for, as well as giving me that much more appreciation for you all..You are the only band that I can honestly say I have purchased all cds as well as eps. Aside from just wanting to own the music, it also has been because of wanting to own your artwork. (photos, sketchings, etc) I will be getting a tattoo of 'You made it out alive, oh what a relief' soon, and was wondering if you had ideas
hey thanks for the nice note. we were blown away by you all, so i’m glad the feeling was mutual. i think that goes down as our longest set ever which was nice. i think you got a really good tattoo idea there. i think just those words would look nice…..maybe scribbled out? hint hint…….send a pic over when ya get it. be well!
It's actually taken me a while to work up the courage to message you. I feel like a dork but whatever. I saw you guys at the 9:30 club (first night) and while I was waiting outside each time you passed all I could say was "hi" I wanted to say more like "your music saved my life..." but I didn't really have the words or the nerve. So thank you for everything your music has done for me. Thank you for the set list! That was the happiest I'd ever been. Do you ever remember the people at your shows?
aw thanks for the nice note. if you were the one that nathan and i walked by and asked what ya were reading, then yes i remember. glad ya had a good time at the show. we did too, dc is one of my favorite places to play and visit. be well.
I finally invested in a proper setup for listening to vinyl and god damn, does your bass sound good. I wanna know all your secrets but I am not the type to open my presents on x-mas eve. The rhythm section just stands out so much on this album, and to me, that is CWK. Bass, drums, soul, etc Cheers buddy
you ever listen to charles mingus play the bass? i’m sure you have.
sometimes i just feel like i NEED to see you guys live. i mean, it's like a drug. do you never feel this awful missing of one gig? memories are not enough. please, tell me you're coming back in france soon, i need one of your shows. by the way, these things you share are still so good. thank you!
i think know how you feel. i have multiple tom waits bootlegs from the bone machine era and every single time i hear any of them, i think about how i wished my 13 year old self would have had the older cousin or uncle to take me to LA to see the show. i need tom waits 1992 shows like you need more every man i fall for, or at least it sounds like. don’t even get me started on the clash or birthday party shows i missed when i was 4. i empathize with you. oh, and thankyou for the gift you sent me. i just now received your nice little handmade architecture book you sent to me, along with those postcards. thankyou so much! it was lovely and lovely to receive.
hi, so I have an odd proposal: CWK is a huge inspiration in my life. To sum this up, I've found a strong connection to the song "hospital beds". Seeing as you are so good to fans of your music and art, I was wondering if i could ask you to write "the joy and misery" in the same style of the crayon mine is yours art. multiple iterations would be preferred, and i wont be hurt if you dont send it :) please if you find the time, send to Colin Wilson, 29 Juniper dr. Windsor Locks, CT, 06096 thanks :)
ain’t no thing. i’ll pop something in the mail when i get a chance. i like that track too.
