I've been on a non stop listening bonanza of the lives Chems sets. Portola was a treat to experience in person and amazing that we now have the audio as a keep sake.

It has been an invigorating experience to dive back into the beginning live shows and listen to the progression of their live shows over all these years.

It got me thinking... and forgive me if this already exists, but would we have the ability to create a website like this: https://www.ninlive.com/home.html

Put all of the Chems live audio and video into one collection? The Chems are my favorite band and I could honestly listen to only them for months on end. Their live show allows us all to dive in deeper to what they have to offer. I have a lot of their live sets from all these years and have been fortunate to attend a good handful of shows. There was a time when I missed out because of travel costs or life to see certain tours. I've been thankful to so many of you for sharing the lives sets and thinking it would be fun to have it in a place to share with all current and new fans.

I'm sure there are website logistics, hosting, costs, and perhaps band/label approval. Might be a fun project to dive into going into this winter. Thoughts?

bumping this. I know there is a semi-public ftp by our own Ben_j, but maybe we should go a bit more public with this?

Furthermore, did our live recording hero BoldCaptain make any of these 2022 US shows?

Right on. More than happy to bring this forward. Would love to help out or take the lead. I’m not a web person but think it could be very wiki oriented and organized in fashion by year / tour along with flyers, set list, venue, recordings, any additional info we can come up with. Our fan base is strong and I’m sure we have a lot of these things already in our possession for more of the already collected sets. Let me know what I can do.

Attaching my first flyer / ticket.

Love the stub and flyer!

Actually, there was an attempt at a wiki by a former forum member, Whitenoise, that lost momentum. It was recently brought back to attention this summer and supposedly was placed in charged of another forum member, Zesty. Whether this a current work in progress, I don't know...

As for myself, I have an unofficial list of dates they have done in North America. This is mostly me entertaining my unhealthy obsession of predicting and understanding their scheduling. Most of these dates can be confirmed by searching the bowels of the internet, but some are unconfirmed (Hawaii date being one). But I also created the thread because I figured it would be a good spot for people to tell their stories from shows of old, and share goodies like your tour flyer and ticket stub. Hope if anything people can learn from this list is, if you're truly honest about seeing them, don't hesitate. Dates are getting fewer and father between.

So anyways about your proposed idea... I'm not the guy to take the lead of any greater project, but I'm willing to contribute were I can.

In your video above at 1:05 we can see Benedict Wong who I guess is kind of a big deal these days thanks to to the Dr Strange films.

Incidentally, in the same way that EML Ritual's visuals were basically a remake of a scene from  Truffaut's The 400 Blows, so these visual seem to be a remake of Kenneth Anger's The Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome:

That was Wong the whole time? Damn we need the Chems to score a Marvel movie.

Ive never seen this 'pleasure dome' till now! Thanks for clarifying my vid and its origins!

I thought it was already canon that the acronym stands for Kraut+Dumplings+Beer

Kraut+dumpings+bratwurst actually…

You’ll find no argument from me to sub for beer though.

K+d+b has been part of my diet for the better part of this month

EDIT: LOL, DUMPLINGS!

LOL!!! Thanks for catching that typo. "Dump-ing" is slang in American english for taking a shit. So I just admitted to eating shit all month.  :))
