JEORDIE WHITE | BASE TENDENCIES
Further surfing of the internets has yielded this review of "Licker's Last Leg". Don't have this record yet? What are you waiting for?
OK, so, being in the mood to goof off at work this morning (well, more of a mood than usual), I took some time to do a random Google search under "Goon Moon" and "Jeordie White" to see what I could come up with in the way of cool stuff to keep everyone occupied during the down time while Jeordie re-acclimates himself to waking up in the same place every morning and eating normal food. Didn't come up with much that hasn't been brought up here already, except for this little interview Jeordie did with an online music magazine called The Inside Connection. A pretty decent read, though parts of it sound vaguely familiar. Hopefully, with two live shows already on the agenda, activity will soon pick up on the Goon Moon end of things.
A few photos from the Sziget Festival, sent in by tellyjj, have been added to the NIN Live gallery.
Goon Moon is set to open for UNKLE a second time on October 27th in San Francisco at The Mezzanine. The Los Angeles show on October 26th has been confirmed as well.
Don't have official confirmation from Jeordie's/Goon Moon's end just yet, but according to www.unkle.com it appears that Goon Moon will be performing live for the very first time on October 26th, opening for UNKLE at their Los Angeles show at the Echoplex. UNKLE is currently on tour in support of their newest release, War Stories. Chris Goss co-produced the album with James Lavelle and Jeordie appears on the track "Burn My Shadow".
ultimate-guitar.com has released another piece of a videotaped interview they did with Jeordie several months ago. In this latest episode, he reminisces about auditioning for Metallica back in 2002. Go here to watch.
In between shows, trains, planes & automobiles, gourmet dining and fine wines, Jeordie somehow found time to post a new video/tune on his youtube page. Check it out here.
Here's two more Goon Moon interviews for you to check out - one with Jeordie and one with Chris.
Passing along a new review of UNKLE's War Stories that you can check out here and also wanted to let you know that there's 3 new photos available in the Fan gallery, courtesy of Rachel-Marie from Brisbane, Australia.
A little sooner than expected, the dudes at Buddyhead have posted their Goon Moon interview. Go directly to it by clicking here. A word of caution: you probably don't want to open this while your boss is looking over your shoulder. I'm just sayin'.
A few photos from this weekend's Reading/Leeds festival can be found at this location. There is video footage available here as well, although getting it to actually work seems a bit problematic for many of us. Give it a go, maybe you'll get lucky. This footage is available only until September 3rd.
Some photos from NIN's performance in Edinburgh can be found at this location.
buddyhead.com will be posting what is sure to be an entertaining Goon Moon interview on their website in the next few days (or, more likely, whenever they get around to it). In the meantime, you can amuse yourself with the latest installment of their unique brand of gossip, photo and video oddities, etc. here. Lots of NIN/Jeordie references included therein.

Here are a few photos from NIN's performance last night at the Sziget Festival in Budapest, Hungary.
Jeordie is currently leading the nominees in the Best Bassist category of the Slammie Awards "15 Years of Rawk" special edition with 209 votes [30% of the total votes.] Thanks to everyone who's voted so far and for those who haven't yet done so, you can cast your vote here. We're on a roll, so let's keep it going!
As a part of a 15 year anniversary celebration, Slammie Productions announces the return of the South Florida Slammie Awards for a "15 Years of Rawk" special edition, honoring artists spanning the past 15 years of the South Florida scene. Along with such artists as Marilyn Manson and Saigon Kick, an integral part of this scene was Jeordie's former band Amboogalard who, over the course of their career, took home a total of 10 Slammies. In 1992, Jeordie walked away with the award for best rhythm guitarist. Voting for this year's special awards is underway now at this location, with Amboogalard nominated in several categories and Jeordie nominated in the Best Bassist category. Head on over and cast your votes now! While you're there, be sure to have a look around the site for a history of the awards along with old video footage and photos from past awards ceremonies. More stuff is to be added to the site over the coming months.
Rock Sound magazine has given Licker's Last Leg a rating of 8 out of 10 and you can read their review here.
Check out this link (scroll all the way to the end of the page) for a couple of really nice shots of Jeordie from the Ankkarock Festival.
"Tip Toe" is the newest audio addition to Goon Moon's myspace page. Don't think that was there before.
Some pretty decent shots from NIN's performance yesterday at Finland's Ankkarock festival can be found here. As always, I'm looking for your reviews and good quality photos to add to the site. See the Contact page for more information.
If you haven't been to Goon Moon's myspace lately, "Sleep With A Gun" is now available for free download. This is good news for those of you with technical difficulties and/or outside of the U.S. who have been unable to purchase the songs through SNOCAP. "Pin Eyed Boy" from "Licker's Last Leg" has been added as well.
Be sure to keep an eye on the new NIN official website for daily (and sometimes more frequent) pictorial updates from the band's current tour. At time of this posting, there is a photo of Jeordie with a few fans in Moscow's Red Square. These photos are not being archived at nin.com, although I will set up something here where any photos of Jeordie can be viewed should you happen to miss one -- provided, of course, I don't miss one myself. Your best bet is to just keep checking nin.com as frequently as you can.
If you're in the vicinity of Munich, Germany, you can catch Jeordie with NIN on at a newly added tour stop on September 3rd at Circus Krone. Check locally for ticket info.
Just a reminder that UNKLE's War Stories hits record stores in the U.S. next Tuesday, July 24th. Recorded in Joshua Tree and London, the album features Jeordie on bass and synth on the single "Burn My Shadow" along with appearances throughout the album by Chris Goss (who co-produced with James Lavelle), Josh Homme, Dave Catching, Ian Astbury, The Duke Spirit and Autolux. You can check out a couple of reviews of the record here and here. UNKLE is currently on tour in Europe and appear to be playing some of the same festivals as NIN. Be sure to check them out if you are attending any of these. They are expected to tour the U.S. sometime in the Fall.
Speaking of touring, NIN have scheduled a September 18th stop in Honolulu, Hawaii at the Blaisdell Arena. Tickets go on sale August 4th.

NIN's upcoming Sydney show, scheduled for September 16th, has been moved from Big Top Luna Park to the larger Hordern Pavillion. Additional tickets will go on sale on July 12th at 9:00 a.m. If you are already holding tickets for this performance, those tickets will be honored at the new venue.
Jeordie was a recent guest on the Camp Freddy radio program which is broadcast via Indie 103.1 on Saturday nights. You can listen to the full interview here, where it sounds like a Goon Moon tour is in the initial planning stages.
The non-working video clips that were a part of the ultimate-guitar.com interview I posted the other day have turned up in fine working order and can be viewed over at Artisan News Service's youtube page.
Finally, looks like there's a few new pictures for you to check out over at Goon Moon's myspace. Also, for those who are not familiar with Goon Moon's 2005 EP, "I Got A Brand New Egg Layin' Machine", you can now listen to one of the tracks from that record, "Apartment 31", on their myspace page as well.
You can check out another little write up on UNKLE's forthcoming release at soundgenerator.com. Also, the Biography page has been revamped and updated a bit and also includes a link to a more detailed biography on Goon Moon. Head on over and have a look.
New date added to the nin.com performance page: 9.9.07 Beijing, China [Beijing Pop Festival]. No ticket info available at this time.
I know there are a few of you who are still having a problem being able to purchase the songs on the Goon Moon page. I was able to dig up contact info for SNOCAP (the entity through which the songs are being sold) and did send them an email a few days ago regarding the problems. I still have nor received a response and, since I was only able to describe the issue in very general terms, perhaps it would be more helpful if you contacted them yourselves with details specific to your particular situation. Contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be as specific as you can (i.e. operating system, browser you are using, etc.) and hopefully they will be able to point you in the right direction.
ultimate-guitar.com has just added another blurb with Jeordie in which he talks about his longtime friendship with Trent Reznor. Though it doesn't really say anything all that new and the video doesn't seem to work, you can check it out here if you're interested. And since Jeordie helped out with it, I also wanted to pass on this review of UNKLE's single "Burn My Shadow" from their upcoming release "War Stories", available now in the UK, Europe and Australia and set for a 7.24.07 U.S. release.
The newest tunes available for purchase over at Goon Moon's myspace are "Delete" and a demo version of "My Machine". Both can be had for the price of $.99 each.
Just a reminder that the new UNKLE album, "War Stories" is available today throughout the UK, Europe and Australia. It is available in five different formats: standard CD, limited edition CD, indie retail edition CD, 12" vinyl and digitally, with each release having a slightly different track list. As most of you probably know by now, "War Stories" was produced by Chris Goss and Jeordie plays on the track "Burn My Shadow", which also features The Cult's Ian Astbury on vocals. The record will be released in the U.S. on 7.24.07.
To purchase online, go to the following locations:
UK/Rest of the World
Another brand new, previously unheard track is available for purchase at Goon Moon's myspace page. This one's an instrumental called "Colour". Head on over to the page for a 30 second clip of the song. By the way, if you are having trouble viewing the box where the tracks can be purchased, chances are you are getting an old version of the page. Clear your cookies/temporary internet files and try viewing the page again. A hard refresh (Ctrl F5) may also do the trick. AOL (at least the dial up version) also seems a bit problematic as far as viewing the box. Try using a different browser and/or switch to a computer that has a high speed connection. If you still encounter problems, feel free to email me with the details. FYI, this is the box as displayed correctly on the Goon Moon myspace page.
