Interesting story about Ian from Ian & Sylvia—apparently the 75-year-old (who is also a rancher--perhaps even a jolly one!) has pretty much lost his old singing voice to erosion and sickness and has had to re-create a new, gruffer song-spiel style.
The thing is, though, it totally works--his new album employs this new Steve Forbert-cum-Tom Waits vocal technique and it suits the songs well.
Look, nineteenth-century toys and games!
This movie Nomadak TX looks cool--its accompanying CD certainly is.
I think I may be (temporarily?) falling out of love with the no-celebrity culture of the intersnertz.
I recently unsubbed from the RSS feed of a blog by a musician whose music i really like, because I couldn't stand reading the long, oft-whiney, and sometimes clumsily-written posts. (Um, no not Courtney Love) (Or Tris!).
I've said things like this before, but I do appreciate a little mystery when it comes to music...
However, I have no problem with the emergency yodel button.
