Finn as a child [07 Jun 2009|03:33pm]


This is part of a movie that Finn's father, Barry Andrews, made back in 1991-92. In this installment, Finn is featured as one of the local gods, the child savage. I thought you guys might like to see what may be his earliest performance ever on film.

So, I'm a dumbass.
I bought a ticket for the Veils show in D.C. on August 1st and realized that I have previously scheduled obligations. I am probably going to their show in Montreal now cause, you know, all of their shows in NY/Philly are 21+. Argh.

Is anyone interested in taking this ticket, for the show at Rock and Roll Hotel in DC, on August 1st, off of my hands?

You can buy it through eBay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230345885691&ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:US:1123) or just through LJ, as long as you have Paypal.
I am selling it for face value ($14.25) or less (probably less).

Help me out, please friends?

Killed By the Boom (rough mix)! [27 Sep 2008|09:29pm]

(photo: Isabel Nabuurs)

While The Veils were in Portland on tour last week, they stopped by radio station 94.7 fm's New Music Hour and Finn gave them a rough mix of Killed By the Boom! You can hear it on their website here. Sounds pretty damn awesome.

The new album is going to be amazing.

Anyone in US or Canada going..? [14 Apr 2007|09:18am]

[ mood | cheerful ]

They've announced the US/Canada tour dates! Yay! But...some of them (maybe most =o) are overage shows ;____;

Tour DatessCollapse )

I was so sad that I even commented on the Veils' myspace of my concern. Little did I think they'd comment back but they did! They said "We can sneak you in if you give us your name" (are they serious?! I'd be happy forever if this was true).

Hello [04 Oct 2006|02:26pm]


I'm new here. My name is Welmoed [I'm a girl;P] and I live in Holland. I'm 16 years old and love music [We are Scientists, The Kooks, The Fratellis, Oasis, The Veils ofcourse and much more]. I don't know The Veils very long, but I have The Runaway Found & Nux Vomica and they are great! 2 October 2006, I went to a concert from The Veils in "Oosterpoort" [Holland]. Wow, Finn is great! So, that's why I joined this community.

Here are a few photo's of Finn 2 October; I made them by myself.

Hi, I just joined. I got into the veils when they supported the howling bells, they blew me away with their live set. I got runaway found pretty soon after and I just got nux vomica just last week, can't stop listening to it. The song nux vomica is probably one of my favourites, live and studio, great build up and guitar parts. Just wondering what other people's were, plus if there were any good bootlegs i would very much appreciate links. Thank you.

Anyway!! THE VEILS feature in the Winter 2006 issue of PAVEMENT magazine! Finn is on the cover and there 10 pages of lovely photos and an article in there! I promise to put it up as soon as I get the scanner up and running this weekend!

New Veils Album [28 May 2006|11:29pm]

I got to hear some songs from Finn's new album week before last. From what I heard, the new album will far outshine "The Runaway Found." Look for it in September!

Also, you can hear Finn singing on his father's latest song by going to Shriekback's official site and clicking on the "Freesong" fish. It's called "Monsters with the Brilliant Disguise."

"Lavinia" singles version [24 Jan 2006|04:53pm]

Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me with this problem. I went back a few entries in the community but didn't see it, so I hope it hasn't been asked before.

In the music video to Lavinia, the song (both the sound of it, and some lyrics) is substantially different to the album version. Is the Lavinia single the album version, or the video version? I have the album, but I would really like to hunt down a good quality copy of the video version of the song. Thanks for any help in advance. :)
