Disappears to make almost two dozen appearances this summer in various cities throughout the US

Disappears to make almost two dozen appearances this summer in various cities throughout the US

I have a lot going on this week, so I’ve agreed to let my neighbor Zack write up a blurb for the Kranky band Disappears, who are touring behind this year’s Guilder (TMT Review) this summer, while I work on formatting the tourdates and finding all the links and stuff. Then I’m just going to piece it all together when we’re done and hope that it’s all factual and coherent and whatnot. Zack is a drummer in a noise rock band (when he’s not fixing heaters and air conditioners), so I figure he should have a healthy appreciation for Disappears’ vibe. He also went kind of ape-shit when I told him that Steve Shelley was drumming with them. But I’m thinking he’ll be fine as long as he sticks to the Wikipedia page and gets his facts right. Either way, I won’t have time to fix it, so I hope so. Take it away, Zack:

Hey readers Disappears is a band that has Steve Shelley from Sonic Youth in it on Lead Everything. Like Steve Drozd, Steve Shelley is a god of drums no question but he’s also apparently really really good at lead songwriting because he is the master of awesomeness in this band that he is the lead singer of. Like I said Disappears is Steve Shelley’s side project from Sonic Youth and proves to be an unbeaten instrumentalist of multiple talents. This evidence can be seen on the recent album that Steve released on his own boutique label Kranky after producing mixing and mastering it in his home studio in New York New York. But in addition, fans of Steve Shelley can see him on the road this summer with his touring band when he and they play shows around America for lucky delighted fans everywhere. Do not miss this chance to see rock and roll at its best format. To conclude, Steve Shelley rules hard and drummers forever.

Aw, crap.
