eek. sorry. yes i am still alive. i know the girl who runs the club they played at, so i probably could have opened for idaho when they came around last year (apr2nd) but my band was out of shape, so nothin happened. besides, with idaho i'd kinda rather be able to experience their whole set than worry about my own set.... anyhow. i think bruce kaphan's album is really good, and yeah there are a few not-so-engrossing songs on it, but its feel and sound are really great in my opinion. best track on there is 'undeserved ending' which is worth the price of the album. for me anyhow.

just my 2ยข

i have "slider" - i too love bruce kaphan's sound, but i'm disappointed with this album - it's way too new-agey (with elements of world music, yuck) for my tastes.

RE: Openers | from Alex N.Mar 04 2003 - 16:49

Actually, "Almost" is the tragically sad album. But yes, he should release both albums. Talk about bi-polar...
I've been planning on buying "Slider" for quite a while, but keep forgetting about it. I think the best AMC tracks are the one's drenched in Bruce's reverb-soaked pedal steel. Sooooo beautiful. I'm actually about to buy a pedal steel within the next couple of months. They're incredibly fun to play.

great interview, thanks for the tip.

As I read, I was reminded me of the chorus in Leonard Cohen's song "Anthem" - "Ring the bells that still can ring/Forget your perfect offering/There is a crack in everything/That's how the light gets in".

I too would love to hear the 'happy' album.

P.S. Anyone heard the Bruce Kaphan "Slider" album? I have'nt, but I have soft spot for pedal steel...

RE: Openers | from Alex N.Mar 03 2003 - 13:33

I'm pretty sure he's okay right now (relatively speaking). He posted a new interview on 12/28/02 on soulwhirlingsomewhere.com. It's quite good. I just discovered it yesterday. I really hope he decides to release "Almost". It would be a tragedy if he didn't.

i'm not so sure that m. plaster is still alive.

RE: Openers | from Alex N.Mar 01 2003 - 16:52

I second Soul Whirling Somewhere. Michael Plaster does play live and it's great. Check out "So Much" on MP3.com. It's unreleased and live. Just Michael, his guitar, and a drummer. I wonder what Jeff and John think of SWS. I would guess that they love it. I can't wait for the new CD to come out.

how about "for against." those nebraskans would be a sweet intro to the sublime perfection of mr. martin.

other candidates: black heart procession; velvet crush; pernice brothers (co-headliners maybe?). just some of my thoughts

RE: Openers | from cMar 01 2003 - 05:54

without a doubt, soul whirling somewhere. i'm not sure if he plays live, but it would be perfect.

Who would you like to see Jeff invite to open up their next tour?

My vote is for Early Day Miners (Bloomington, In) and New Invisible Joy (Pgh, PA)
