Yeah helicine is gonna have to add those two in before you or me can add them in.intertwoven wrote:I can give it a shot. There may be a show or two I'm clueless about, but otherwise I've got a decent idea of the lineups. 1996-1997 was probably the height of my Perry fandom, so I kept pretty good tabs on the band back then.Mike wrote:Based on what you're saying I have a feeling it's going to be difficult to get 1997 100% correct.intertwoven wrote:Yeah, Watt was in by late '95 through all of '96, so Martyn's initial last show has got to be 3/15/95.
One reunion show I think Martyn forgot was the day after the Tibet Freedom Concert..
06/08/97 Boston, MA, Great Woods (WBCN's River Rave)
..Pretty sure he played that one too.
Most '97 shows were "acoustic", stripped down with no bassist.
I know you're a wealth of information and if you want to take a stab at the '97 dates I'd be glad to have you do it.
If I do it it'll be guess work more or less and would much rather not go that route.
Also, I think Leo Chelyapov should be added to the site's P4P "roster". He played clarinet with the band for many shows during 96-98.
edit: for that matter, Thomas Johnson should probably be added too.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Joh ... roducer%29hmm.. interesting.Johnson's involvement with Porno For Pyros (Porno For Pyros) began during the recording of their second album, Good Gods Urge, on which Johnson engineered, co-produced, and played. Following the album's release, Johnson toured with Porno For Pyros from 1995 until the spring of 1997, providing samples, playing keyboards, and singing backing vocals. During this time Johnson also recorded new tracks for what should have been Porno For Pyros's third album, which were instead released on Perry Farrell’s solo effort “Song Yet To Be Sung” and Jane’s Addiction’s "Kettle Whistle".
I was just telling him on AIM that it's an issue and I'm sure he'll fix it.
If you look at that 1996 Enit itinerary page I posted up there Thomas Johnson is listed as part of the band.
