Jesse Harte tried joining Warrant back around 1993 when Jani supposedly quit. Butch Walker wont even acknowledge anything Southgang related these days anyway. I predict a 100% chance of no reunion

Some of those Jesse songs are on Turner's Hollywood Undrground disc aren't they? I agree a reunion will never happen but I sure wish it would.

A full re-union would never happen but I'd be happy with a 3/4 reunion, minus Butch, of course.

The only problem with that is that the other two are probably closer to Butch than they are to Jesse, seeing as they were in M3 with him.

 

It really annoys me that Butch acts like he was never in a band before the Floyds etc.

Yeah, I'd also assume they were closer with Butch but they haven't recorded together since M3, have they? It'd be cool if they were just looking to do something musical again and the idea of a reunion with Jesse Harte popped up as a possibility.

 

But come to think of it, wasn't the reason M3 split up pretty much because the other 2 guys were getting out of music to concentrate on their lives outside of music?

I know the band were pissed off with Elektra and the fact that they totally failed to promote them, which could have left the Mitch and Jayce somewhat jaded with the music industry, but am guessing that Butch also wanted to spread his wings musically as well.

According to Wikipedia, for what thats worth, they have both played with Butch on and off over the years at various live shows.

 

And this is what it says on the Southgang page:

"Jesse Harte is currently residing in the Atlanta Area, working in the cell phone industry.

Mitch McLee is still playing drums in Atlanta, Georgia.

Jayce Fincher is married to Christina Loree with a couple of children. He is working at a church in Atlanta as the musical production "go to" person. He also works with the middle school ministry."

Nice ballad 'Love Ain't Enough'..IMO the band's best ballad.

Although ''Aim For The Heart'' is a pretty good one.

 

Love For Sale is one of my fav in the first album...

 

Butch Walker released the album: I Liked It Better When You Had No Heart last year.He just seem so tired and out of inspiration and of course no similarities with the ...Gang...

Strange that track 07 is called: ''She Likes Hair Bands''

Getting older I guess

All the Butch shows I ever went to, other than once, no one ever yelled out "Play Southgang!", probably knowing his predilection for ignoring his past or not even knowing who SG was/liking that kind of music.

 

With all the covers and other things Butch has played/mimicked over the years, I'm thinking some SG at least on one year's tour, would have pacified a TON of his fans. And now with a lot of the dreck he's putting out, he really needs to pacify some fans.

 

I'm not naive enough to hope for a reunion (unless Butch were to suffer from amnesia), but with all the other nostalgia stuff going on, I'm wondering if Jayce and Slug begged him to do a one off, if he'd even consider it. (Then again, as close as they all are, I'm sure they know not to even bring it up.) For the life of me, though, I can't see being more embarrassed of the SG material than some of the stuff on this last album.

    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-  
    • Not an amazing album, but pretty solid with a couple of very nice tunes-     They have a very comprehensive youtube channel for anyone unsure and wanting to give everything a listen- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYECJVZLOQebjAuj_HMKLjg  
    • Credit must be given where it's due, and I do like the effort put into this one. To be frank, I thought the first 5 songs were pretty shit. All the while I was listening, wondering what became of these guys. The most frustrating song of those first few is 'Eternal.' I wrote in my little ratings thing that it almost sounds to me like these guys are trying to sound bad because, otherwise, this is a pretty good song. But it's just done poorly.  Anyway, I want to be fair to these guys and I have to say, that from song 6 the mood in the room seems to lift and they start to give it a fair crack. They drop the mopey post-grunge blandom and have a crack at some decent melodic type of rock. Spoiler alert - I don't actually think there's a keeper track on the album, but holy shit they get close.  'Temples,' 'Alive,' 'Heaven Knows' and 'Someone's watching over me' are all, four in a row, good, strong songs. And then 'Love Is The Only Place' hits and I was taken aback. Unfortunately, they're not the band they used to be and I am 100% convinced they couldn't hit the heights of the debut even if they did everything possible to try... but goodness do they get close with this track. A bit of polish and finesse and this one wouldn't be a bad stab at what they did so well on their debut.  Sadly, the album's worst song follows in 'The Undertaker' - what a piece of shit, lol. Really grates me because this is the discussion point I've had with christians that aggravates me the most, and it's in a song, so naturally I hate it. And then 'Afterlife' isn't amazing, but pretty decent. Before the album finishes on a high, with one of the best songs on the album with a nice hook - 'Strange New World.' So overall, like I say, credit where it's due. After the first few songs I was close to closing up shop and calling this a pass, but thankfully, they took me on a ride and it was pretty cool. They're a dim shadow of the band they used to be, to be totally fair, but I like that they showed a bit of fight with this album. Better than expected.
