I never, never post here anymore – not for ages. But there are things afoot! Over the last couple of years:
- Kristin Hersh released her book Don’t Suck, Don’t Die
- Some strange “open-letter” battle happened between Vic’s partner Tina Chesnutt and Scott Stuckey, who wanted to put out a movie about Vic. The video surfaced on YouTube eventually – called What Doesn’t Kill Me, but seems gone now.
- New West Records has released/is releasing vinyl editions of the Texas Hotel records, and the later era Silver Lake and Ghetto Bells.
BUT all of this is happening/being revealed over at the enemy’s house: fucking Facebook. But if you’re there, and you are, check out the page there (not mine) – people are sharing photos (and lately, documentaries recorded off TV way back). These are linked to YouTube pages. So basically the conversation has moved to social media. If I get any resources that aren’t online already, I’ll share them here. If you’re embarking on an exploration of Vic Chesnutt, enjoy. You will love it.
