In this Dream Tour segment, the psychedelic duo, SWIMM, let you know who they would like on their ultimate tour lineup. You can check out the feature, after the break.
Our dream tour would be like a traveling wonderland emporium. Each step of what is usually a grueling process would be catered for our pure delectation. Each band scratching a different itch. Each hero of mine sharing their trade secrets, the legends of their lore and inviting me up each night to sing with them. Each night would end with an abundance of 5-HTP and free love. (Love is not strictly defined as sex nor is it excluding such associations.)
We would, of course, have all of our friends’ bands with us. Probably too many to name but definitely not too many to bring. We would share a couple different tour buses. We would bring back the early 2000’s MTV show “Pimp My Ride” and have them deck out each bus to a different theme. The Aquarium bus, naturally. The Lava Lamp bus. The Sandwich bus (which would be a bus with a hired chef who would make any kind of sandwich you want at any time. A Monte Cristo for breakfast? Done! A Cuban with plantains AND pickles? Boom! A Sausalito Turkey Club?? Well, you get the point. Did I mention the Jacuzzi bus? That too.
Then we would be direct support for a different hero each night. All of which would be happy to join for the entirety of the tour based solely on the availability of Boar’s Head meats and fine honey mustards! And since this is a dream I would go ahead and just have everyone that passed this year be the headliners. Lemmy to get the week started. Bowie to get us weird. Prince to get us wild. And Leonard to help us with the come-down. And let’s just say Third Eye Blind as the guest spot on week 3. They dead yea? Jk I fucking love Third Eye Blind. As far as I know they ain’t dead.
When can we start this? I’m famished.
