Silkworm Documentary

Hello Silver Jews friends and 12 Ave South, 372** gang:

Do you remember Silkworm? I'll never forget them. I was emailed by Seth Pomeroy about a new film he's coming out called Couldn't You Wait?: The Story of Silkworm. And I'm posting to this board to tell you all about it. Basically, they need to generate enough buzz about the film to show an audience, so they can raise enough money to finish it.

At the current state of production, Seth and crew are looking to bring in outside financing to finish the film. This is almost impossible without proof of an audience. I'm hoping you could all help the extended Silkworm, Pavement, and Silver Jews family by telling your friends, writing about the band or movie, covering a Silkworm song, or doing whatever to help the scene, like we all did in our small, loosely connected communities before the Internet (when we used things like 1200 baud).

Now is your chance to help us, please: write about the band or the movie in forums/blogs/zines, pass around the video link, tell your friends, cover SKWM songs, force your local record store to stock "Firewater," do whatever you have to do to show the rest of the world just how big Silkworm's audience really is. We're everywhere and we miss the band.

Told in their own words, this film chronicles their seventeen year long career using various live footage and in depth interviews with their labelmates, rock critics, friends, and many other important figures of the "indie rock" scene. It's going to show the universal experience of relentless low budget touring and the harsh realities and minimal rewards of chasing the “rock and roll dream.”

"...stomach so full of pizza grease..."

For up-to-date info, please visit our myspace page. Feel free to add us to your friends list and leave a comment or a story on our SKWM STORIES blog:

Earlier this March, Seth and crew were asked to edit together a trailer to show at the SKWM Tribute Show in Chicago. With less than half of the interviews we needed, we realized it would be close to impossible to represent the finished film in a two minute blurb. Carrying on in the spirit of the SKWM Tribute Show, this 15 minute "extended trailer" celebrates this wonderful band and it's members using interviews shot from both the Chicago and Seattle shoots. We are extremely proud of how it turned out and look forward to crafting these vignettes into the finished version of the film. (If you have any video, articles, or photos you would like to contribute to the film, please contact me here.)

Look for the video on the typical video sharing sites.

Thanks for listening. Mazel Tov!
