  1. Thank you so much for linking to these. I love this. The first one especially is so sick; it kind of feels like a modern approach to a Meteora track to me. I messed with this approach in some of my own stuff, it’s awesome to see how Mike comes at it.
  2. I’m glad I mentioned something just to find out about that because that’s sick and I want to go back and watch it. Not to take it too far off topic, but there’s big community of cassette artists on IG and even Alessandro from NIN has been utilizing a four track. It’s exciting to know Mike has done similar stuff.
  3. Thanks for the heads up; scratch my theory then. I've watched several of streams, but not all of them. I must have missed him talking about it. I've gotta go back and find that.
  4. This is TOTAL speculation, but this feels like the right spot for it. I’ve recently noticed beyond the digital stuff that Mike seems to have a Tascam 4 Track deck on his desk near the patch bay. I’ve never heard of him utilizing it for anything new before, so if I had to guess, it’s hooked up to transfer old material from cassette - maybe stuff that never had a digital master? Could be nothing, but also could be something.
  5. Show is February 01, 2001 Canes Bar and Grill San Diego, CA Setlist: With You Runaway Papercut By Myself Points of Authority (featuring Styles of Beyond) High Voltage Crawling Pushing Me Away And One In the End A Place for My Head (featuring Stephen Richards of Taproot) Forgotten One Step Closer (with “Falling Down” intro)
  6. Director PODENCO has posted behind the scenes footage of the making of Mike's "Make It Up As I Go" music video on his Vimeo account.
  7. How about the demo bleeding into the click track on ITE? That's a fun find.
  8. Yes, it is specifically the demo version. Is this the first time a demo version of a song has leaked as a multitrack?
  9. Yes, they're in the wild now.
  10. Just musing on the multitracks a little now that "Papercut" is in the wild: It's been really great with the HT stuff coming out to dig in and break down these songs. That was my like first favorite album. I generally credit Mike (and co.) for setting off my interest in audio when I was a kid which eventually lead to a degree in audio. It's really an awesome opportunity to be able to come back and hear the multitracks for HT stuff after so long given that kind of significance - I would never have imagined that as a reality years ago. What I'm wondering/kind of putting the call out for is if there was a way to get all of the available multitracks for HT together in a uniform way. I know it's probably a lot of work coordinating the effort between multiple collectors with priceless CDs, but it would be great to see "Papercut," "Runaway," "By Myself," "Forgotten," and "Pushing Me Away" ripped with logs, proper tags, with the SMPTE time code and in standard file format (like WAV). Some have the timecode, some have clearly been edited. Some are separated into folders by instrument, some aren't. Some are WAV, some AIFF. I would love to see just straight copies of the CDs themselves as is -for those who believe in that kind of archiving or know how to work with the tracks unaltered (I appreciate providing edited versions of the tracks to those who want to listen as a curiosity but aren't as savvy to remove the timecode, etc., but that should ideally be adjacent to unaltered versions). Not to sound ungrateful, I'm beyond stoked any of these are out there in any form. The wealth of what we have is amazing. Astat, it sounds like you were trying to do something in the vein of what I'm talking about, which is good to see. Hopefully, that can be possible again in the future. Also, these multitracks *could* tell us a bit about the technical details of Reanimation. Any new music/vocals produced for the album might be higher quality, but if we believe the idea that Reanimation was created using these CDs being sent out to remixers, that means certain elements of Reanimation would only exist at 44.1/16 bit (i.e. the vocals on "Pts.Of.Athrty" being sourced from the CD but Jay's music being new [not saying that's what happened, but as a potential example]). Which doesn't mean anything as a whole, given there's clearly new vocals and new music all over it, but it's interesting to think about. It's had two higher than CD quality releases, so it must warrant it to some degree. I think perhaps these CDs were used to create the demos the remixers were working on before LP recut vocals, etc.
  11. Feeling like the old guy here being, but Meteora leaked. I remember being unable to pick it up on release day and being upset, but I had definitely heard the album prior to that day. I forget when, but it couldn't have been too early. It was after the Nottingham show, so sometimes between the March 3rd and March 25th. Probably within the same week. Reanimation goes at tiny bit too far back for me to remember if it leaked in full. I think yes. But several tracks got leaked early, with the remix of Ppr:Kut getting radio play here in New York on KRock before the release date. I remember Enth E Nd leaking what felt like pretty far in advance.
  12. Happy Birthday! Thrilled to hear this exists. I remember when this and R&R Hall of Fame was coming on MTV2 all the time in '02. I feel old as fuck now! It's great to hear this exists in its entirety. I've always had a soft spot for Docklands. I love when little things like this pop up.
  13. I posed what I posted just to have it be seen. This is a live guide and the information I provided will help make it more comprehensive. Honestly, it's just always bugged me more than normal because it was not only my first LP show but my first show ever. That's obviously a personal thing though, and in the grand scheme, it's just another show, but this seemed like an okay place to mention it.
  14. It's off topic, but still in the same vein - the Notes for the 02.08.2004 show at Jones Beach aren't 100% complete. I submitted this information at some point and it got nowhere. Not nearly as interesting as the Em thing, but I know the moderators have been in this thread. During the Hip Hop Medley, Snoop Dogg came out, but his microphone cut out. I remember Mike telling the sound guys to fix it. He may or may not have given Snoop his mic, but I'm not 100% on that. I remember hearing Snoop say one line but by the time things worked out he was pretty much finished. Sorry my memory of it isn't as clear, but it was 8 years ago. There's a bunch of pictures of him onstage on Getty Images. Also, Bert McCracken from The Used came out and sang on 'Faint'. I haven't found anything to back it up, but I'm pretty sure it happened. They were my two favorite bands at that time and I lost my shit. Someone I didn't know at the time who was at the show also mentioned this. I also found out there's footage of one of his performances on The Used's "Berth" DVD, but it doesn't look like Jones Beach to me and I've been there 9 times, so I can say that with some authority.
  15. I wouldn't get my hopes up about Amazon adding the music player. I've seen things not have a preview well beyond when they should have. That being said, Amazon in other countries sometimes seems to be a bit ahead, like .de, .fr, or .jp, for those checking. They might pop up earlier in countries where the album is released earlier.
