Songs on Ben's MySpace [10 Mar 2008|03:50pm]

I put out a request a couple weeks ago about downloading tracks off Ben's MySpace, and some very nice people uploaded the tracks onto Sendspace and whatnot. Ben has uploaded some new stuff and I want to download those, but they aren't enabled. Does anyone have any ideas of how to get around that? I really like "John's Song" and would love to iPod that shit instantly.

Any help would be awesomely appreciated. I have some Slotcar and KoLS stuff available to upload on request, too.

Bridges Worth Burning demos [18 Jan 2008|07:04pm]

These are the Bridges Worth Burning demos that were on the Japanese edition of the album. I don't know how to zip file stuff, so like a chump, I've uploaded them one by one onto Sendspace.


Also, has anyone had any luck in downloading the Blunt Mechanic stuff from Ben's Myspace? I can't get it to work.

Slotcar songs [18 Jan 2008|05:53pm]
Hi everyone. Here is a link to download the Slotcar songs. It's slow, but it's free and it works. Let me know if it stops, and I'll upload it again. It's the four Slotcar songs, then a bunch of other songs that I had in the folder labeled 'slotcar', but I'm not sure if they were Slotcar, or the Kind of Like Spitting cassette tape. It was awhile ago. But it's all in there, I'm sure someone can clarify better.

Does anyone have the 'Ben and Meridith' songs? Those are impossible to find. Or the 'Live in Seattle'?

So I just found the Cash Money Bro.'s live recording after feeling really in need of Ben's voice. It made me real happy. Hopefully everyone's heard the new stuff on his myspace.. and that he's changed the name to include Blunt Mechanic, which probably means more to come. I'm excited. Anyway, I was hoping someone might have recordings of any of the other bands? I've got the thermals, and I think I have the worker bee demos. I'm hoping for Slotcar..
Anything of David's other things would be crazy awesome too? The Real Diego.. etc?

Ps- David's new cover of Tom T Hall is ADDICTING.

The Wetlands NC 9/18/06 [24 Sep 2006|04:11am]

Just thought I'd put a little blurb out there about this show.

Ben was looking tired as shit, but still did a great job per usual. Sort of a subdued set, solo electric guitar. Here are some songs I remember:

Song for You
We Got As Far As Minnesota
Blue Period
You Got Served
Free Advice
Little Time Bomb
You Can't Get Stoned Enough
Team Reasonable
Why I Smoke Mad Weed
Canaries into Untitled (on Bridges)

Definently go out and show some love.

so just to say anything [22 Sep 2006|05:16pm]

[ mood | Tired ]

I have a very specific Kind of like spitting memory. This is how I first came to know and love them... and seeing as I am less then a week from opening for Benny in Utica NY.. I thought I'd post this... because the last entry got my nostalgic juices flowing...

My Lovely friend Teresa went to college in 1998 she was an hour away, and we used to drive up there every weekend and go to the hardcore shows in Syracuse NY.. I was very into that then... as I got older my Tastes mellowed a little.. Around her Junior year or so We would be on the phone for hours and I'd be making up songs on the phone with her, playing guitar and singing to her.. trying to cheer her up or what not.. Or just being a jack ass..

Then one day she says "hey, i heard this band that sounds like you, when you make up songs" I thought this was funny because I wasn't trying to sound good.. just fun.. and she said they were called "Kind of like spitting" So she made me a mixed tape and it had Birds of a feather on it. I believe it was song # 4 or # 9 on the tape.. (i could be wrong)

Instantly when i heard it .. that song really did something to me.. on September 2003 we saw ben live an solo on one of his infamous acoustic tours.. he was amazing.. and From then on I got every KOLS cd tape mp3 anything i could find.. i have quite a collection.. even the famous "cash money brothers" set, and lots of live stuff.. i fell in love with his music..

I finally saw them again in Feb 2006 in NYC at the Redder Records Party at Sin-e' It was nice to see ben again. Him and I have talked on the phone a bit since then. It is nice and kind of weird to know my 2nd favorite musician of all time (#1 that is alive still) and i talk on the phone.. and that i'm going to be opening for him in a few days.. it is nice to know that Birds of a Feather is still on my top 5 favorite songs of all time..

I think music marks moments in our lives.. some amazing some painful.. KOLS is always amazing. I've never been let down musically by ben..

i know this isn't all i could say about KOLS.. but .. it is all i will say.

Pittsburgh show [22 Sep 2006|01:51pm]
You know, remember, freshman year of college, those nights in bed with a good woman, drunk on three glasses of wine, listening to Nothing Makes Sense Without It and wondering if the future’s really that bleak for us ("Shaggy Dog" ripped your still beating heart from your fucking chest, you know). Or that time you skipped seeing Ben and the full-band play in an arena-sized venue with Saves the Day ($16 tickets and "little kids" "moshing" were a little more than you wanted to bargain for) and instead stayed home, drank cheap beer, and rocked the shit out of Bridges Worth Burning, but sort of regretted it later. There was a day when most all my mix-tapes had "Your Favorite Actor."

I’ve been waiting a good five-six years to see Ben play; he finally came through Pittsburgh a few nights ago: holy shit, the show, fucking amazing. Yeah, I was real drunk, but shit it was one of the best shows I’ve ever seen.

I’m doing my best to remember the set list; I probably left a few out. In a very vague order:

- A Song for You (Leon Russell cover)
- You Got Served
- Canaries
- Boxcar (Jawbreaker cover)
- Team Reasonable
- Two Phil Ochs covers (neither of which I knew)
- Sheriff Ochs
- Grapes
- Bird of a Feather
- 26 is too Soon
- Free Advice
- A Thought from the Kitchen Floor (I’m not sure if he played this, I can’t remember)
- Share the Road
- Finishing
- Passionate (I think I pissed a few people off when I started screaming along, rocking the air drums hard)
- Song For Annie’s Harmonica (no harmonica)

Yeah, so, amazing show. Be smart, don’t miss this tour.
