2:36 pm - Louise Post Wallpaper

so I just made this.. and thought I'd share.
it's got lyrics to "used to know her"

I have a live recording of the song where instead of saying "I used to terrify her" she sings "I used to care about her" which to me, is more effective.. so I used that lyric instead of the recorded version.

9:48 pm - New album news.



Veruca Salt skyrocketed to fame in 1994 with the alternative radio mega-hit "Seether" off their Minty Fresh debut album "American Thighs," and followed with an equally successful sophomore effort, 1997's "8 Arms to Hold You." After co-founder Nina Gordon left to pursue a solo career, lead singer/guitarist Louise Post reformed the band with guitarist Stephen Fitzpatrick and drummer Kellii Scott, to produce 2000's critically acclaimed "Resolver," described by Chicago Sun Times' Jim DeRogatis as "the best album to be released under the band's Willy Wonka inspired moniker, as well as one of the strongest albums of the year ... a galvanizing rock 'n' roll statement in a pop-dominated time." The success of Veruca Salt's 2005 EP "Lords of Sounds and Lesser Things" and its accompanying US tour secured the band a record deal with indie label powerhouse, Sympathy for the Record Industry. Now sixyears after Resolver, Post and Fitzpatrick have been joined by bassist Nicole Fiorentino (Radio Vago), and rejoined by drummer Kellii Scott (Failure, Blinker the Star, Enemy), to create the fourth and latest full length Veruca Salt album, "VS4," which is slated for release in September 2006. Produced by Rae DiLeo (Filter, Army of Anyone), "VS4" features the classic heavy guitar thunder, pop sensibility, and soul-wrenching lyrics of previous Veruca Salt efforts, coupled with the stirring musical maturation of Louise Post and Co. Songs written and performed live to worldwide acclaim over the past six years (such as "Blissful Queen" ,"Save You" and "The Sun") have been combined with powerful new material, and the resulting effort promises to be the greatest Veruca Salt album to date.

Lots of big big news for all of us Veruca Salt fans:

"The band has signed with Sympathy for the Record Industry and are currently in the studio recording the album in L.A. with producer Rae Dileo (Filter, Army of Anyone).

Joining them on this record are drummer Kellii Scott (Failure, Blinker the Star, Enemy, ETC.) and bassist Nicole Fiorentino (Radio Vago)

Hardcore fans will definitely recognize some of the songs being re-recorded for the album combined with loads of never-heard-before material. The album is scheduled for a September 2006 release. Some Summer tour planning is underway, and VS will be kicking off a full-length tour in the Fall for the album's release."

This is straight from the site, by the way. I just went ahead and edited out all the filler, leaving the important parts.

If this tour is anything like last years mini-tour, looks like I'll be seeing them three times. :]

current mood: cheerful

7:32 pm - New member.....

I thought i'd introduce myself. I'm Diana. I'm 23 and live near Cleveland, OH. I was first introduced to VS in 1995, and have seen them twice in cleveland. The first time I threw my bra at Louise. My favorite song is "Used to know her." I think that Louise is Veruca Salt and their sound was definitely better after Nina left (I have nothing against Nina though, I have her solo album). I just heard tonight that veruca salt is "back" and am so excited I could scream. In fact, I just ordered the new ep. Louise looks amazing now and I can't wait until they release their new album.

current mood: excited
