  They may have broken up, but Save Yourself is still being used today

Somewhat unrelated, but when I heard the song it made me kinda quishy inside.

That is all

  Now I've a small request. I'm desperately looking for an MP3 of Sleep - Daddy's little girl remix. If anyone has it, could they please drop me a line?

  This community is dead. D-E-A-D. We need like a reunion album or something...

Can someone even enlighten me again on how this community was created? I noticed that the members have grown to 40-60 members.. but haven't this community been here even before the days of the AOL MTV message boards?

Someone answer me damnit :| If I know you or not, just answer me. And if I really know you.. well... you'll find out :D

  Hullo :)
I'm re-visiting my past here.. i used to be a big Stabbing Westward fan, pulled a couple of their cds out when i was moving and realised i hadn't listened in a while.. so here i am. I've seen SW play once, when they supported Live (in New Zealand, a few months before they disbanded).. the day of the night they played, a friend and i recognised Chris on the street and (sad to say) stalked him while he talked in a phone booth. He noticed (probably hard not to) and came and talked to us.. decent guy! Plus he was wearing those nice fitting jeans.. ;)

So, i'm here to catch up on any news and anything else that comes along :)

The ones that I have are: Shame, What Do I Have to Do?, Save Yourself, So Far Away, and 2 behind the scenes quicktime movies from when their final album was released. If anyone wants these, comment here or IM me; my sn on aim is Rosie1300.

Hey Hey! Just came across a couple of Kill Hannah songs that were remixed by Andy! I have no idea how long these songs have been floating around but, to just stumble across them made my day!

Hey all. I'm not new to lj but I'm new to the community. I am absolutely infatuated with Stabbing Westward, have been for about 6 years now.
I was talking with a friend of mine in Indianapolis about SW and she said it's great music to listen to when you feel like throwing yourself off a bridge or something. But when I listen to them, I feel suddenly empowered and very emotional. Chris's voice just touches me in a way that I can't quite explain. I listen to them all the time, good mood or bad, and they just fit.

Does anybody else really feel like that? Or do you just listen to it in certain moods? *shrug*

the dreaming. 
11:17am 21/02/2004
  I saw the dreaming last night at the troubadour in santa monica, ca. It was absolutely incredible. First of all, Chris is the nicest celebrity I have ever met. He kept talking to my friends and I because he continuously almost tripped on some chord that was next to us. In fact, we talked with him more than anyone else did. They played 7 songs- bleed, let it burn, afraid, and many others which I didn't know. They had techincal difficulties and had to cut "beautiful" from their set list, and they almost performed an encore but the drummer, jonny, had unplugged his drum set already (even though it would have taken him 2 minutes at most to plug them back in).
Well, basically it was amazing. When I was talking to Chris he couldn't hear me so i whispered into his ear, and it was awesome.

my friend took some pictures with her phone camera, and here they are. the quality is kinda poor because chris was never in the light long enough to get a good shot of him, but oh well.

Hello..........and as the new member I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Sharmane and I have been a loyal loyal fan of Stabbing Westward for many many years. Ummmm.......on a sad note....I've only seen them in concert once (and it was about 6 or 7 months before they disbanded)...*sad face*... I really can't think of anything more to say except that I hope I can be of assistance to this community in any way possible!

actually, i'm wondering if anyone has the cover of "me & a gun" by tori amos that stabbing westward covered. i'm pretty sure i'd be a live version.
i've been looking for it all over the place.

I <3333333333333333333333 Stabbing Westward! 2004 will be my 9th year that I have been a fan of Stabbing Westward for.

So, if you want to be my friend, comment here on this entry. Until then, rock out and keep on loving Stabbing Westward.
