Jeff, I was just reading that you were fond of early Sisters of Mercy's EP. Did you include Reptile House? Cause I always thought there was similarities between this EP and some songs on Year after year. By the way, what happend to John?

Hey saladin...it's nino here again. The bands who have influenced me are STYX, ELP, and YES. More importantly, though, I think your sound would be better served through the use of transistor amplifiers and possibly more modern digital synthesizers. Just a thought....

early idaho was influenced by the swans, dinosaur jr, the cure, miles davis,joy division, codeine. im not speaking for john however and he was a big part of idaho.

Ahhh... The Sisters were cool. It always pissed me off that they got played on Kroq and CSA didn't. Were
there any other bands you used to listen to that may have had an effect on Idaho's sound?

Hi Jeff, I once read in a CMJ interview that you used to listen to some old English goth band called Red Lorry Yellow Lory. Did you ever hear of another English
band called The Comsat Angels?
