ivy promo

ivy promo

1997 press release photo for apartment life

ivy bio

bio sheet given as promo along with the photo

i recently bought these two ivy promo pieces off ebay cuz i saw the bio sheet and just neeeeded it lol
a few months ago i also ordered an ivy poster off ebay from this guy that runs a shop in athens called secret sounds. he had a few ivy related things for sale, the one i got is a poster that came in the realistic lp but he got it as promo so it wasn't folded ;) the owner of this shop, chris, was sooo nice he even included a couple extra ivy promo postcards with the poster !! best of all though was that he emailed me links to vids from when ivy did a couple in stores at secret sounds when it was located in bridgeport, ct!! below are a couple vids from the 97 in store show promoting apartment life, here's another of them playing "i get the message".
here are the links to a few from their show at the shop in 95: "drag you down" & "can't even fake it", "i guess i'm just a little too sensitive", and "wish it all away"

"the best thing"

"baker"

and ok don't kill me i know i'm a month late for this but below are a couple videos for "i hate december" (originally released on the 94 ep lately, and again in 95 for the remixes single)
thank you to ivy fan page for uploading the super 8 video directed by adam!! they were able to get their hands on the video directly from andy himself, and i'm very grateful they shared it with the rest of us :) this is what andy said about it:
"we filmed it on my super 8 camera during our first tour in 1995, but then forgot about it! i just came across the footage back in april 2020, and put the song in, finally, 25 years later!!!"

should've been in love


wilco says pow pow

jay bennett (rip) and jeff tweedy
from a.m. released in 1995

you been dealing with all of these feelings
like they got you believing they have no meaning
but they do

your life's been stinking, your heart's been sinking
and you're too busy thinking to stop
you blink and you're blue

should've been in love
should've been in love

your mind's been racing, your heart's been chasing
and you might as well face it, time's wasting
it's true

your life's been stinking, your heart's been shrinking
and you're too busy thinking to stop
you blink and you're blue

should've been in love
should've been in love

i know how it goes,
so i just had to let you know i know

my life's been stinking, my heart's been shrinking
and i'm too busy thinking to stop
i blink and you're gone

should've been in love
we should've been in love
we should've been in love

in store at a shop in michigan, june 1995

song to the siren

long afloat on shipless oceans
i did all my best to smile
til your singing eyes and fingers
drew me loving to your isle

and you sang
sail to me
sail to me, let me enfold you
here i am
here i am
waiting to hold you
did i dream you dreamed about me?
were you hare when i was fox?
now my foolish boat is leaning
broken lovelorn on your rocks
for you sing
touch me not
touch me not, come back tomorrow
o my heart, o my heart, shies from the sorrow

well i am puzzled as the newborn child
i am troubled at the tide
should i stand amid the breakers?
should i lie with death my bride?
hear me sing swim to me
swim to me, let me enfold you
here i am, here i am
waiting to hold you

until it's time for you to go


writing
smiling

from many a mile released in 1965

you're not a dream
you're not an angel
you're a man
i'm not a queen
i'm a woman
take my hand
we'll make a space
in the lives that we planned
and here we'll stay
until it's time for you to go

yes, we're different worlds apart
we're not the same
we laughed and played
at the start like in a game
you could have stayed
outside my heart
but in you came
and here you'll stay
until it's time for you to go

don't ask why
don't ask how
don't ask forever
love me now

this love of mine
had no beginning
it has no end
i was an oak
now I'm a willow
now I can bend
and tho i'll never
in my life see you again
i still stay
until it's time for you to go

don't ask why of me
don't ask how of me
don't ask forever of me
love me, love me, now...

you're not a dream
you're not an angel
you're a man
i'm not a queen
i'm a woman
take my hand
we'll make a space
in the lives that we planned
and here we'll stay
until it's time for you to go

katy song

some escape some door to open
this path seems the blackest
but i guess it's the soonest
but there in the clearing
i know you'll be wearing
your young aching smile
and waving your hand
can't go with my heart
when i can't feel what's in it
i thought you'd come over
but for some reason you didn't
glass on the pavement under my shoe
without you is all my life amounts to


a final sleep
no words from my cutting
mouth to your ear
or taut wicked pinches
from my fingers to your bitter face
that i can't heal
i know tomorrow
you will be
somewhere in london
living with someone
you've got some kind of family
there to turn to
and that's more than i could ever give you

a chance for calm
a hope for freedom
outlet from my cold solitary kingdom
by the forest of our spring stay
where you walked away
and left a bleeding part of me
empty and bothered
watching the water
quiet in the corner
numb and falling through
without you what does my life amount to

live 1995 set cued at katy song

fake promo

fake rhp promo

ok i'll say it, i've been feeling kinda emo the past week, and it's wintertime, so of course we're gonna talk about red house painters we have no choice but to.. let katy song be the 8 minutes you've been needing to take out of the day to cry a little bit. i mean are u really gonna try to tell me ur NOT crying after he says "glass on the pavement under my shoe...without you is all my life amounts to" ://
the pic above right is a scan from nme magazine (from what i've been able to find source-wise, there's not much about it out there) that tristen showed me a few years ago. apparently it's a fake lil promo article they did for fake rhp songs (click to enlarge and read cuz it's hilarious). i hope that story is true and that rhp were the ones behind it, cuz i like sad bands with a sense of humor.
