He'd quit drumming because he had a family to support, a new graphic design business to run, and so on. I've never heard anything about an injury. You might want to ask that question over at throwingmusic.com though.

Graphic design. Cool. I once asked him to do me a doodle at a record signing. He drew himself giving a two finger salute (fuck off not victory). Ha. Relieved to hear no injury.

He designed a few of Kristin's latest records' covers, including Learn to Sing Like a Star, and I believe he did every 50FootWave cover.

Kristin's new record is phenomenal.
I've had mp3's for a while, and am very much looking forward to getting my hands on a real cd version tomorrow.
the grotto had pieces of absolutel magic (vitamins v being one of the best songs she's ever recorded) but the new one is astounding.
i love how she still finds time to put out amazing record after amazing record.
she's a true legend.

She's playing the Temple Bar Music Centre here on 12th March. I actually played there with my friend's band.

Kristin Hersh
Learn to Sing Like a Star (Yep Roc)
By D.X. Ferris
Published: March 1, 2007

Sexually inquisitive college girls have Ani DiFranco. Metaphysically minded faerie fetishists have Tori Amos. And aging Gen-X hipsters have Kristin Hersh. Of the three women, the latter is the most underrated and vital artist, and probably the most normal. On Learn to Sing Like a Star — her 21st release in the 21 years since she founded Throwing Muses — Hersh is still one of rock's few married parents who can write and sing as urgently as a tortured single white female fumbling through her twenties. On "Day Glo" she groans, "This isn't anything/Nice silver lining/Getting up is what hurts/Then you'll melt into the background." Maybe it's about a hangover. Maybe it's about aging. Whether you're 21 or 35, it'll hit a nerve. The bleak content won't faze her regular listeners, but the music will impress those who felt her solo material had faded since 2001's electrifying Sunny Border Blue. Serving as her backing band and fleshing out Hersh's acoustic guitar and trademark strings are Muses drummer David Narcizo, along with the McCarricks, an experimental duo who bring along tubular bells, a shaker, and backward piano loops. Blend all of that together and you've got an album full of haunting chamber rock, jarring dynamics, and a morose ambience evoking the Pixies and Nirvana's Unplugged. — D.X. Ferri

It's a sort of "full band solo tour". She plays with the McCarricks on cello and violin (who also open for her), Bernard Georges on bass and Rob Ahlers on drums. The latter are also two-thirds of 50 Foot Wave, but here they play "sensitive" songs. She calls it "Pussyfoot Wave".

I gave a mate the album to see if he wanted to come to the Glasgow gig with me. He hated it.

I laughed so hard at the last 50 Foot Wave gig. Tell me I'm right. They're a riot, no? I'm just now heading off to Koko. Bliss.

Saw her play yesterday. Good show, great set. And I really liked the cello/violin enhanced 50Ft.Wave setting they had. She sure has a great voice. And did more screaming than I expected. Which totally rocks! I would love to hear her cover Tame someday.

Only thing was - once again in Berlin I have to say - the rather small crowd. Maybe it was just the monday evening date.

And I have to get the show from dime benji mentioned. Hhmmm. Soundboard.

Benji - thanks again. So here it is - a total ripoff, but I hope you like it anyway. After all, I'm only ripping off talented people.

i've been trying to upload the Sparkle bootleg to various sites with absolutely zero luck.
dime wouldn't take it cause dates and venues aren't known.
archive.org wouldn't take it cause it's a compilation of 5 different live sets....
think i might try bt.etree.org next, but will see what the archive.org dude says one more time...

anyways, i uppped 3 songs as samplers to throwingmusic.com and thought some people here might be interested to boot.

Got this email today. . . .

The "family bus" has dealt Kristin's touring party a near-death blow today. Yesterday, outside Coeur d'Alene, Idaho they blew a hydraulic hose. Everyone sat in a crippled, over-heating bus, in the middle of the woods and mountains with no cell service for miles. A service station employee down a lonely road took pity on them, called a friend and had that friend search out a bus and truck mechanic who could not only fix our bus, but also come to us -- 34 miles from anywhere.



The band, crew, kids & dogs slept on the 1 bed, couches and floors of the bus in the parking lot of a country coffee shop waiting for a part to be delivered. At 9 a.m. this morning, $800 later, they got rolling again -- for a whole 9 miles -- before another hose blew again!



Everyone's now holed-up in a motel in Northern Idaho, the bus has been towed to a shop where it will be out of commission until Tuesday at the earliest. Kristin and Billy are scrambling to acquire adequate transport so they can finish this tour. The Minneapolis show will not happen. We hope it's the only one to be canceled and that all can make it to Chicago by Tuesday.



What a bummer. Thousands and thousands of dollars lost, challenge heaped upon challenge...we're pretty sure the universe is trying to tell us something. More on that later. In the meantime, follow along with the discussion on our message board: http://www.throwingmusic.com/jive/thread.jspa?threadID=2832&tstart=0



Wish us luck...hope for the best...expect the worst and maybe you'll be pleasantly surprised.



Love from,



Your Friends at ThrowingMusic

such bad/sad luck.
billyo's posted a couple more on the tm board.
makes me so very sad that it's reached this level when it's such amazing music:

In the spirit of openness and to answer TurboC's question -- unfortunately yes, the tour(s) as a whole have been a money pit. It's so disappointing, especially as we thought that by bringing the Big Show out on the road, we'd have the opportunity to draw more people and regain some ground lost over the last few years. It's so bad out here these days that we'd be just covering expenses even if we'd toured solo-acoustic -- I have to say it's been bleak with very few exceptions.

Thank you all for your concern. We've managed to rent a truck and a minivan...and are in the process of loading kids, gear, adults and dogs into these vehicles at noon today, local time. More expense, added hotel rooms, more hardship (ever tried doing 1800 miles in 2 1/2 days with a car filled like ours will be?) This will break us. Such a drag and so many tears. Music is the only good reason to suffer all this -- but something's going to have to change. We're now officially destitute.

All our love back to all of you for the concern, love and good vibes.


and the next one:
We're under way and en route to Chicago...we made Bozeman, MT this evening, which isn't bad considering our necessarily late start from Idaho. Everyone in our camp is being remarkably sweet and buoyant and we're so grateful for their patience and good natures.

You all are another story. We've cried reading your posts and seeing your generous gifts roll in. We could not be more touched, humbled or proud -- proud of the love and friendship that this music has inspired. It's a huge gift and not one we've ever sought or expected. Thank you is all we can really say. Thank you. We sincerely hope that none of you have given more than you can or should. The pit in our stomachs at that very thought is bottomless. Please do not give a gift that you yourself can't afford.

We'll stay in touch...and see you in Chicago!

Love,
Us
