*Free Midnight Set by The Swayback at Bender's tavern this Wednesday January 5 
01:57pm 04/01/2005
  Hey gang.

We are playing a FREE midnight set tomorrow night at Bender's Tavern on 13th Street in Denver(314 E. 13th where the old club ONYX was located). We are the ONLY band playing for the evening and the Lipgloss DJs will be spinning in and out of the set so come down and DANCE.

Tom Hoch from the DJ/Producer collective Mile High House is going to join us on stage for a spell tomorrow for a little improvisation between the band and his glitch/industrial/breakbeat turn table heroics. Should be tasty. Mile High House producer Ilk is in the midst of doing a dance re-mix of our newly recorded song "Forewarned" and will be included on our next release which should be ready before we take off for Austin and the South By Southwest Music Festival in mid March.

Our debut self-titled release is getting some nice reviews. You can pick up a copy form our web site or at Twist and Shout, Wax Trax, or Independent records in Denver. Have a read if you feel like it:

The Swayback (Too Bad You're Beautiful Recordings)
Having spent the past couple of years honing its black-as-midnight sound on metro-area stages, Denver's Swayback finally delivers the goods on CD with its ravaging debut, a collection of throbbing goth-punk that resurrects both the sheer power of the Glenn Danzig-era Misfits and the eerie minimalism of Bauhaus. Replete with fuzzed-out basslines, droning guitar solos and Eric Halborg's from-the-beyond vocals, The Swayback is a grimly powerful introduction that recalls buzz-band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's more apocalyptic moments — and portends great things from one of the Front Range's most damaging live acts.

The Swayback (Too Bad You're Beautiful Recordings)
The Swayback's psychedelic freakout conjures the Stooges driving a stake through the heart of Ink and Dagger -- with the Misfits on their knees, snorting up the powdery vampire dust. Eric Halborg's sinister howls leave puncture wounds in the gritty primordial riffs and stubbly bass lines that encase it, allowing agitated shards of feedback to seep through.

The Swayback (Too Bad You're Beautiful Recordings)
There's something heroic about The Swayback - regardless of its larger-than-strife live shows. The Denver band impressively acts as a medium for a style of music that needs to be heard. Its angular, rapid-fire rock owes as much to Gang of Four as it does Sweet...... with "Distinguished Guest at the Downtrodden Ball" and the "Jon Merrick Blues," the band is driving hard and fast - as a tightly knit, name-taking collective - down a road that should lead its music well beyond Denver's city limits.

  okay, first of all, i can't change the stupid fucking layout of this stupid fucking community because i can't log in as the community for some stupid reason.

second of all, i guess i will never see the swayback play again as i am forbidden by the parentals. yeah, i can see lenore and makeout with six hundred people twice my age and they don't care.. but when it comes to the swayback... they're like.. whoa, and stuff. so that sucks.
maybe my sister can take me. but since i'm lacking a car and license i will no longer be able to see you guys. come to my birthday party december 4th, babeh. i know it's a long way away but still.. lenore is doing a basement show.... in my basement.. yeah.. basement show. OHBABEH

i won't be at that one either
does the swayback and lenore have this conspiracy where whenever they play they have to do it on the same night?
anyway, the 22nd is also the battle of the bands. i'm gonna be there.
and you're gonna be with the swayback.
i'll miss you.
