No, I actually can't wait

Couldn't You Wait? is a documentary on the great band Silkworm. This extended trailer (taken down at the behest of the director) features friends and acquaintances of mine (along with Steve Albini) talking about the band that affected our lives in one way or another. This 14 minutes is purely reverential, and doesn't touch on the tragedy of their ending.


Playlist: Silkworm sampler

Can't do a proper list without either the (criminally out-of-print) album Libertine or their final EP Chokes, of which neither is digitally available.

There's also a tribute album coming out soon, and last week Silkworm fans like Chris Brokaw (The New Year, Consonant, Codeine) and .22 played a show at Chicago's Empty Bottle to help with the release of the tribute. There were rumors that a live recording by my old band doing "Three Beatings" was in consideration to be used as an uncredited (as requested) bonus track.

No problem, Drake! Thanks for removing it so quickly. Feel free to discuss it on forums, pass the link around, I just don't want the link/video to be posted in a place where anyone could stumble upon it.
