They played together last night in Carrboro, NC so it is now more feasible than ever. Hopefully they didn't relearn these songs just for this short set.

If they reform and tour, I will change my ways forever and become a good person.

Let us pray.

And if you played too hard it'd flop out and dangle around by the wire and that is just super ugly

Alternately if this does not happen, I will start killing children.

This is a clear violation of the principle of seperation of church and state.

Yeah, Tommy, you should either stop praying, or stop lobbying the government to sanction this as an official reunion. One or the other.

Well he never specified which deity to pray to so actually there's nothing here that violates church and state at all.

Dear Satan, let this stupid band get back together because it'll make some dumb jerks happy. You're the best Satan, love you.

On a side note, Archers of Loaf is an utterly retarded thing to call your rock band.

They should change their name to Leather Bitches or Sex Dwarf or L.I.X.X. or something, they'll get more chicks.

I'm assuming every member of this band is male because most women have more taste than to be in a band which is blatantly named after some sort of middle school injoke.

Maybe there is something wrong with my brain but every time I hear the Archers, I think they were the best, most incredible pop band of the 90s. Every song is a fucking hit.

Archers of Loaf Were The Best Pop Band Of The Nineties: A Study in Youtube Nostalgia.

'Web in Front' - Four beautiful counter-harmonies including Eric Johnson's superb understated guitar motiff.
'Wrong' - Surging, anthemic masterpiece. Matt Gentling's backing vocals nearly make this song for me.
'Might' - Excellent riff, fine bridge and neat switch to Chorus Verse Chorus, wait which one is the Chorus anyway?
'Plumbline' - Listen to Johnson's creeping, chiming guitar hook at the back of the mix.

'Lowest Part is Free' - Two choruses being played at the same time, feedback which sounds like a keyboard!
'Freezing Point' - Purposeful bitterness personified, instant nostalgia. Guitar!

'Harnessed in the Slums' - Thundering, taking it to the streets fist-pumping orgasm.
'Underdogs of Nipomo' - Fantastic pseudo-surf scratchy riffing, the outro is another chorus in itself.
'Floating Friends' - Great half-assed gang vocals, nicely emphasising the loafing tempo.
'Fabricoh' - Any song which ends with the repeated mantra of "Rocking Out, Rocking Out, Rocking Out" deserves attention.

'All The Nation's Airports' - Eric Johnson, lead guitar. Picks out Bachmann's vocals and then provides all the weird little slide guitar bits.
'Scenic Pastures' - Never has a song been so aptly named. Wonderful, seemingly dripping lead guitar tone.
'Chumming The Ocean' - Obligatory wistful piano ballad.

'Fashion Bleeds' - Excellent drumming from Mark Price, memorably insistent riff.
'Dead Red Eyes' - Latter day discography highlight. Scariest Prince song never wrote. Great bass-line when it arrives.
'Perfect Time' - The best mid-tempo rock song I can immediately think of. Yearning, reflective, defeated.
'White Trash Heroes' - One of Bachmann's finest if you can find it amongst the electronic mishmash.

We just did that kinda secret show to see if we could pull it off. We had a good time, so we'll almost certainly play some more shows- just haven't booked anything yet.

Sam if you could possibly do that why the hell would you not even try that is just dumb.

It is going to be essential that I figure out how to get to New York for one of those shows.

Sam the only reason anyone spends any time on the PRF is to make career opportunities like this happen.* Don't be a loser, make this work out.
