Sublime With Rome

Post by Uli on Sat Nov 16, 2013 9:52 am

Travelled to Cologne on Friday Nov 15th, to meet a friend from the U.S., who happens to be roadie for this band. So when I arrived and found him, he took me to meet some band members (from Sublime and Dirty Heads, who supported) and roadies...
Thus I was able to take a look "behind the scenes". (But don't worry, they were all cool and professional, no bad backstage stories here...)
It was nice to meet Josh Freese (who'd just performed 3 gigs with The Replacements this summer and also played on many many albums with all kinds of musicians). He had only nice things to say about Axl (he worked with the band 1998-2000 I think), said he was always cool and generous. Cool 
He's a great drummer, I watched the first few songs from the side of the stage. Then I went into the audience, where it was loud and sweaty! Very Happy 
(Btw, support band Dirty Heads were pretty good as well, check them out if you like reggae etc.!)
Back to Sublime With Rome: they performed many songs, both old and new. The show was sold out, so the place was packed and the audience went wild and sang along to the "hits".
This is the setlist I nicked after the gig:


I'm 100% certain they played a Nirvana cover which is not listed ("Drain You" I think it was and sounded great)!

Well, I did think about this before I got there. But I didn't even have my camera with me at the show (I took the pic of the setlist at home), because I was a "guest" only and I didn't want the band to be annoyed by someone who's taking pics in "private" moments (e.g. when they sit and have their meal, before they go onstage etc.) and basically I didn't want to come across as a "fanboy". So I'm sorry, no pics. (My friend took one of me loading Josh's drum into the bus later, but I haven't seen it yet...)

There were lots of people taking pics and/or filming, but sadly I couldn't find anything on youtube or elsewhere as yet! Doh! 

Just these from Berlin the week before:

A very interesting interview (done during the 2013 tour, but published recently). The pics from the tour bus look just like I remember it...  Wink 
I can find myself in some sentences there - back in the day I was never a big fan of reggae, but later I came to like it. Funny that they mention The Ruts - just a few weeks ago I saw Ruts DC (like Sublime W.R. they are some kind of "follow-up band", after their singer had died in 1980), who played many dub/reggae and punk songs!  Very Happy

Interview about the new album:
http://radio.com/2015/07/06/interview-sublime-with-rome-sirens/

Short quote, read more at the link above:

Josh Freeze has been playing live with you for years, but this is the first time you’ve recorded an album with him.

Dude, he’s really gifted. I always knew he was an incredible drummer, but he can shred on guitar, he can play bass, he can even sing! The dude’s kind of crazy. He’s got music in his blood. His brother and his father are the same way. He’s a really cool guy and brings a really open energy to the band. We really vibe as brothers and all of us are able to create super freely.

Has Josh brought anything to the table you wouldn’t have expected?

During that time when Bud was planning his exit, there was a lot of tension. Everybody was walking on egg shells. We didn’t want to piss off Bud. Now that Josh is in the band, it’s like a huge breath of fresh air. He’s so likable, he’s so cool. Anyone that’s ever met him will tell you the same thing. He’s just a good person and cares about making good music. When he came in, it was almost like it became another band, yet again. When it came down to writing music, his input was all over the place.

New video. It's not my favourite song from the album... there are much better ones (especially the more grunge-y, punkrock songs, but also those which bear more reggae & ska roots). Also tour dates in the US starting tomorrow:

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/sublime-to-mark-25th-anniversary-with-reissue-documentary-w472898



The group, which released 40oz. to Freedom in 1992, will reissue the late Bradley Nowell and company's 1995 Badfish EP, which will arrive on vinyl for the first time to celebrate Record Store Day on April 22nd; for last year's Record Store Day, the band reissued their 1991 cassette Jah Won't Pay the Bills on vinyl.

Additionally, Sublime are planning a pair of films based on the band's legacy: The first ever authorized documentary to tell the "real" story of the group, with Bud Gaugh, Eric Wilson and the Nowell estate all cooperating with the production, is currently in development. Sublime is also in advanced negotiations of a biopic about the band.
