Well, I've just started getting into David Rovics myself.

I just got hold of a copy of 'Behind The barricades' and I love what I've heard so far.

Anyone know of his other releases and where I could get those CD's?

aidan moffat, "singer" in the band arab strap, and sometime soloist in lucky pierre along with the occasional colloboration with mogwai

Oh, really? I like arab strap. I'm voting for him.

Mon the Strap!

Lou Barlow is the singer in Sebadoh/Sentridoh/Folk Implosion and one time of Dinosaur Jr

Conor Oberst is the singer/songwriter in Bright Eyes

Will Oldham is Bonnie "Prince" Billy, I included him without knowing any of his songs, I bought one of his albums today and was thoroughly underwhelmed, but twas the live one so perhaps that's why.

Go Moffat!

re: will oldham

best lps

palace music - s/t

bpb - i see a darkness (amazing!)

bpb - master and everyone

amalgamated sons of rest

film - matewan

conor obherst was also in a band called despreciados who released an LP on saddle creek called 'read music, speak spanish', which unlike all his other shite, is actually quite good

Nov 16 2005 06:49

master and everyone is my fav bpb/will oldham

he's got a new one just out has he not, but it's just a collection of live tracks i think, kinda drifted away from him over the last year or so
