Frischkorn

Susanne Frischkorn, the poet we had the honer performing with on Friday night, wrote sweet words about our band and her experiences at Story/Stereo.

Her poetry reading was beautiful. She exuded confidence while still maintaining a softness in her voice. After reading a bit from Lit Windowpain, she delved into her more recent poem—giving the audience a sneak peak into her upcoming book of poetry.  The newer stuff seems a bit more youthful and spunky; I dig it.

Many Thanks

Thanks to all of you who came out to the show last night. We had a great time opening for Mark and Rose. This was our first time being up on stage in over a year and it felt long overdue. Hopefully you all will join us again next month at the Writer’s Center in Bethesda, MD on the 18th for our official CD release show.

Also, for all of you who noticed the comment section of our blog never quite worked, fret no more; we will be fixing this needed feature in the not-so-distant future.

Beck recently began a strange project where he has decided to cover entire albums in a 24 hour window.  I’m not sure how impressed I am with the cover of "waiting for my man" but the cover of “sunday morning” is ace.  I’m guessing there will be a few misses in this batch of tune, but when recording an entire album’s worth of songs in a day, one would expect this.

RW is no stranger to covers.  The Clean, Bob Dylan, and The Troggs are a few artists we’ve attempted to meld into our setlists in the past. The great thing about covers, and what some musicians seem to miss, is that a band has the freedom to make it their own, even give the song new meaning.  Cat Power does this brilliantly when covering "satisfation" by the Stones.  As for Beck, we’ll see.

1989 to 2009

I’m halfway through reading Black Postcards, a memoir by Dean Wareham. I’ve been a fan of Luna since I heard my older brother playing “California (all the way)” but only recently started listening to Galaxie 500 albums in full. What intrigues me about BP is the unique perspective one gets from being a front man in a somewhat famous band in the late 80s. Sending demo tapes to labels, calling clubs to get gigs. No internet or file transferring! No myspace or lastfm to get fans interested. It’s hard to fathom.
