This week’s feature story: Milemarker

Category: Blog — @ 1:23 pm November 30, 2005

I’ve been following Milemarker for years, having reviewed both 2001’s Anaesthetic (Rating: No) and 2002’s Frigid Forms Sell (Rating: Yes), both on Jade Tree. It was the latter album where the band really hit its stride. They’d release the moribund Satanic Versus later in ’02, before disappearing from the music scene altogether — which is discussed in the interview (read it here). It was during those Jade Tree years that Omaha became something of a regular stop on the band’s tours through Nebraska, even opening for Desaparecidos’ CD release show back in January 2002 (surprisingly, none of their shows were One Percent gigs, until now). Starting over means going from playing rooms the size of Sokol Underground to the more intimate O’Leaver’s — a switch that frontman Dave Laney is happier about, realizing that the band couldn’t draw a crowd big enough to fill anything larger. We’ll see. There are a lot of Omahans who remember this band and hopefully will show up next Tuesday.

And if you’re wondering, no, I didn’t go to the Ween show last night. Anyone who did, please be kind enough to grace us all with a brief review on the webboard
