  1. Yesterday was a big day for me as a Matt Good fan. I went to see my first Matt Good solo acoustic show in TO and I also went to the meet and greet before, which was my first time ever talking to Matt. During the Q&A, I asked him if he'd ever be willing to play Rico or Indestructible live again even though he doesn't like those songs, and not surprisingly, he said no, to my disappointment. The show was a great experience. I'm so glad that he played Change of Season, one of my favourites from the MGB days. I wish he played Symbolistic White Walls or Tripoli or Avalanche, but you can't always get what you want, especially with Matt. Still a great show.
  2. There's another Chart article which stated some interesting stuff I didn't know about. When Dave originally quit the band in August 2001, Ryan Dahle (from Age of Electric and Limblifter) was named his temporary replacement. Also, in that same article they say that MGB fans should expect a live album in time for Christmas. What ever happened to that album? Why wasn't it released? Here's the link to that article: https://web.archive.org/web/20030624044412/http://www.chartattack.com/damn/2001/08/2701.cfm
  3. Oh yeah, and here's the link of the article: https://web.archive.org/web/20020106023541/http://www.chartattack.com:80/DAMN/2001/10/0404.cfm
  4. That interview was in September 2001, so it was shortly before the Intimate and Interactive show was announced.
  5. While indulging in my hobby of looking through old music magazine articles online, I stumbled upon something that I never knew about. In October 2001, it was announced that MGB, then still together, were going to perform an Intimate and Interactive set on MuchMusic in November. Unfortunately, before that could happen, the band broke up. Did anyone else know about this? I would've loved to have seen MGB do an Intimate and Interactive set on Much, especially since they were probably gonna perform songs from Audio of Being which was what the performance was promoting.
  6. First of all, I really appreciate that people took the time to make these videos available, so thank you guys very much. I'm not posting these videos to get credit for them as my own. When I uploaded the MGB MMM bio and someone asked how to access the whole bio, I gave the link to Chad's site. I just posted these videos myself so more Matt Good fans and Canadian music fans in general who may not be familiar with this fansite could see them. I didn't ask permission because they were made available to download, so I took that as permission. I'll include a link to Chad's site on everyone of the videos.
  7. I was so eager to get these videos onto Youtube that I saved Dan the trouble and uploaded the videos myself. My channel has almost 5500 subscribers, so people who may not be familiar with this fansite will discover this lost footage too.
  8. Are you sure that Apparitions performance is from the 98 MMVAs? Because Rich is performing with the band, and I thought he didn't join the band till 99. Also, there's footage from the 98 MMVAs from the Much More Music bio which shows Geoff still with the band.
  9. Big move by Matt. I'm thinking that he did this because he has problems with certain comments on his social media pages. If that is the reason, I think this action is completely unnecessary. If he doesn't want to see or he doesn't want people close to him to see certain comments, he can disable commenting on those SM pages. Getting rid of those SM pages completely does a great disservice to himself and his fans. It's a disservice to himself because by having no SM accounts, it makes it harder for himself to promote his music, merchandise and concerts, which means potentially less money for him. And it's a disservice to his fans because we can't read his intelligent and thoughtful comments and writings that we love so much. He doesn't have to post them if he doesn't want to, but that's no reason to get rid of those SM pages. Plus, Matt is making it harder for his fans to connect with him beyond the music. He's distancing himself from his fans, and that's not a smart move when his whole career is based on him having fans and people buying his music, merchandise and concert tickets. I know he got into this business to make music and not to be a celebrity, but sometimes you can't have your cake and eat it too. If he wants to continue to make a decent living making music, he needs to embrace things that he may not like. If he doesn't want to do that, he can try to make a living doing something else, and we all strongly hope he doesn't do that. Does anyone else wanna comment on this?
  10. Mod edit: Full concert listings are available at https://www.nearfantastica.com/concerts/ SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT: Matt is playing at The Moose and Goose in Thorold, Ontario on June 28th. What's strange is that they haven't announced the show on Matt's website or social media yet. I found out about the show through a friend.
  11. Thanks for the tip! I live near where the festival's gonna be so I'm definitely going to that show. They were going to announce the whole lineup on the 25th but it's fun to know before others. I wonder if I had something to do with Matt's booking at that festival. The festival tweeted asking what bands we wanted to see at the festival, and I tweeted back a list of bands that included Matt.
  12. Hey, just saw this comment. I don't post these things as if I found them from somewhere other than your site. All I'm saying is that I found them. I guess I should give more credit as to where I got these things. If I haven't said it yet, thank you very much for your site. As an MG superfan, I really appreciate all the great stuff you've made accessible through your site. And by the way, I did mention your site as the source of the MGB MMM Bio I uploaded to Youtube in the comment section of the YT video.
  13. For anyone who has never listened to this great interview or wants to listen to it again, here it is.
  14. He actually responded to people in the audience requesting songs? In my experience of attending Matt's shows he's just ignored them. Nice to see him explain why he doesn't play Indestructible. That explanation makes sense, but I think he doesn't want to play it for the same reason he doesn't wanna play Rico, because he thinks it's a bad song.
  15. Was Turner animus to Matt? He didn't seem to be animus when he addressed Matt's comments about OLP on Much. OLP was asked about Matt's comments and Turner seemed to not take Matt's comments seriously and made fun of the situation. I don't know if he's said anything other than that though.
  16. Was at the Hamilton show last night. I was hoping that I was going to see Indestructible. I know Matt hates that song and hasn't played it in 10 years, but when I asked Matt during Raine and his Twitter AMA in January if he'd ever play it again, Raine responded saying "I'll do Indestructible if Matt won't". I was excited by that because I actually thought he was being serious, but I guess he wasn't. I was also hoping that Matt would play Tripoli (which I've never seen him play live) because I recall him mentioning that song as one of the songs he'd play on this tour, but he didn't play that song either. He even dedicated a song from Audio of Being to OLP drummer Jason Pierce because "he likes that album so much", but he played Advertising on Police Cars. Still enjoyed the show though.
  17. Exactly. Also found Matt's OHNM interview with Alan Cross there. What a great site that is for a Matt Good superfan. And thanks for showing the link to that audio clip.
  18. Also, what I was really surprised to see was that MGB covered the song "Uncle Fucka" from the South Park movie. I would love to see a clip of that.
  19. In addition to finding that MGB Much More Music Bio, I also found a bunch of MGB setlists from 1998 to 2001. I added them all to setlist.fm, so if there's an MGB show you attended and you wanna see if the setlist for that show is on there, check em out. It's also interesting to just see which songs they frequently played, seldom played and never played. They apparently never played Middle Class Gangsters, The Inescapable Us, and Going All The Way.
  20. I found the MGB MuchMore Music Bio from 2001 and uploaded it to Youtube. The whole Bio hasn't been available on Youtube since like 2009. For those of you who want to watch it, here it is: I needed to edit the video a bit to avoid showing too much MGB music video footage (especially from the Apparitions video). The Bio includes Matt and members of Our Lady Peace talking about Matt's comments about OLP, which is really interesting to watch considering the band is now doing a whole tour together.
  21. I doubt that OLP and Matt will rotate who goes on first and who closes. I'm betting that OLP will close all shows. No offense to Matt, but OLP is the bigger band.
  22. By biggest regret as an MG fan is being born in 1993 and therefore not being able to see Matthew Good Band live.
