Since Quicksand's "Slip" LP, Walter's work has bored the fucking shit out of me.

Went on a whim to see Walter perform solo acoustic upstairs at Pianos about, oh, five years ago. He did a Sick-Of-It-All medley, which was hilarious; afterward we hung out with him and and he couldn't have been more funny and gracious.

That said, I can't think of another artist whose early work (GB) thrills me so much whose subsequent work I just cannot connect to at all. Still, really good guy.

Hey, Sammy! Take off that cap; we know, we know.

Be proud, be bald!

Of the bands he could reconstitute rival schools would be last for me... But if it's what he feels then more power to him

IT's not funny anymore. Walter is a talented guy, no doubt. But, please, stop with this shit! This band blows. Quicksand is the last of the postcore i can handle from walter.
