Andy, Tim, Michael

As official as it gets.

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

This is what Andy said about his rock show. That's all!


Happy 4th of July! I hope you are having fun and aren't out getting your fingers blown off. I've got to mow the lawn and take care of some errands but I want to finish this up first. It's actually a nice day and it was supposed to be miserable, so I've got to get outside.

I'm writing to tell you there's news. We're touring Canada with Shellac in late August - thrills! This will hopefully make up for the time a few years back when we were heading out to do some shows with them and we wrecked our van and got stuck in Cheyenne somewhere, it ended up being a very depressing Spring and oh I don't want to talk about it. So I've posted the first stab at tour dates. I hope you're happy and I hope you all come to the shows.

The other big news is that Tim and Vickie have moved from their nice friendly apartment building to a big scary house in the rough part of town. Shit! Scary! It's exciting. It's a character-building experience. But it's changed the mailing address for ordering stuff, so make a note of it.

Andy hasn't told me how his show went, so I can't tell you anything about it yet.


Now there's some action! There's an actual live show!

Andy's playing at a place called Roby's. It's somewhere around Damen and Division. He's playing there on Tuesday night, June 29th. That's soon! He's playing a "solo acoustic" show - just like the guys on MTV, and they're big rock stars! Just like Andy!

This will be a great show. Chris Fuller, another local legend, will be playing on his guitar and humming to himself also, and then there's "a girl who's name I don't remember" opening the show. It'll be fun! You should go! If I were in Chicago I'd certainly go.

Beyond that, there's no new action. Barring any unforeseen circumstances (which wouldn't surprise me a bit) I'll soon be posting dates for our trip to Canada in August.

Have you notices the Cult fans writing rebuttals to Tim on the message board?


Now someone's selling Crust Brothers CDs on ebay! They can't be stopped! These immoral sons of bitches are taking over the world, convincing these naive kids that $30 or more is nothing to spend for a CD that's easier to buy than a goddamned ice cream cone!

It's crazy, everyone's crazy. I'm especially crazy.


Silkworm has fallen victim to bootleggin'! Dig it! Now we're real big time.

Lots of classy rock journalists have been saying nice things about the Crust Brothers CD. This leads me to believe that everyone will buy it and we will have to print some more. In fact, someone in Spin asked readers to beg the Washington Wilderness Coalition to bring it back into print, but of course, it never left print, and the WWC has nothing to do with it. Those Spin people are ding-dongs! They really are! They said some other dopey stuff, I forget what it was. Other people have been saying dopey stuff lately. Someone got all hard about Steven's great singing on Heard It Through the Grapevine, I mean, he was just so hard about it, but it wasn't Steven singing at all! It was Tim! That's the pits, man!

So don't read what everyone says, except when they say the Crust Bros. thing is great, and then tell everyone and then go out and buy it. Oh, we've got some new singles out. I'll write about 'em as soon as I get my shit together.
