The Reader reported the other day:
Major news from Chicago’s favorite reverb-friendly garage jammers, Disappears–the band has parted ways with Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley due to scheduling conflicts. Singer-guitarist Brian Case tells Gossip Wolf that the split was amicable, and the evidence bears him out–this winter Shelley’s label, Vampire Blues, will release a collaboration that Disappears recorded with local droners White/Light in 2009. Drummer about town Noah Leger (Electric Hawk, Anatomy of Habit) will replace Shelley behind the kit–he makes his debut with the band on Sat 9/8 at the Dust Up….
9/8 of course was last night. If you made it, how was the show? That’s a picture from it above. In related news, Sonic Youth are announcing something Monday at noon. Could be nothing of course…
Steve Shelley joined Disappears in late 2010.
