http://wallofsound.go.com/news/stories/indigogirls061500.html


after  a long, eventful 14 years, the indigo girls  plan to pause and take stock
of  their  career  via  a retrospective album that will collect favorite moments
from  their  nine  releases  and  add a couple of new songs the duo; amy ray and
emily  saliers;  will  record  later this summer. just as soon as they wrap up a
two-month  summer  tour, which kicked off june 2 in atlanta and wraps up july 29
in santa cruz, calif.


"we  both  have a few new [songs] in the works," ray says. "we're just trying to
get  through  the  beginning of this tour, then we're going to sit down with our
songs  and  start  learning them and figure out what two songs would be best for
this."


as  for  previously released material on the album, ray says she and saliers are
polling their manager, friends, and people at their record company to figure out
what  should  be included. "i've never been a big fan of greatest-hits records,"
ray admits. "this is a hard thing to figure out how to approach. we never really
had  hits,  so  it's actually easier in a way; we can pick what we think are our
strongest  songs.  we'll probably put it together in a way that tries to reflect
what we think is our growth and our diversity over time."


the  collection is one of several projects the duo is working on now. the indigo
girls  were  active in the campaign for low-power fm radio stations and recently
played  at  a  rally  in  washington, d.c., celebrating the establishment of the
program.  they're also planning their annual honor the earth tour, which will be
held during october and will include the native american blues group indigenous,
as well as other acts to be announced.


ray  says  she expects that the group will take a "long break" after that before
reconvening to record a long-promised acoustic album. meanwhile, ray is going in
the  other  direction  on a solo album she's been working on for her independent
label,  daemon records. she's been recording with the butchies; a north carolina
lesbian  punk  trio;  and plans to finish during the late summer and early fall.
"it's  sort  of  melodic  punk," she says of the new material, "like crazy horse
meets the butchies, something like that. it's loud, but some of it flows.


"it's  not  going  to  be  a  brilliant  masterpiece  or anything. it's my first
attempt; i'm trying to be patient with myself and just get it done."


++"long break" - yikes!  does that mean they're not coming back here to ireland.
its been 6 years already since i've seen them.  i just may sob!++
fare thee well,
marion

this is a pretty good scan of the new promo cd for cold beer and remote
control.  the inside cover of the digipak includes two very blurry,
static-y on purpose pics that i'm sure are taken from stills of the new
video we've been discussing.  the live versions are from11/19 & 20/1999
at the filmore in denver, so probably all this stuff will be on that
video.  here's the tracklist:


1. cold beer & r.c. - studio
2. interview
3. gone again - live
4. interview
5. peace tonight - live
6. interview
7. ozilline - live (this is great too y'all)
8. interview
9. cold beer - live
10. interview
11. shame on you - live (a speedy version with the les paul, not the
strat for you guitar junkies)


i thoroughly have enjoyed it.  i wouldn't pay the prices that are going
on ebay, there's one for $61 right now, but i think if you call your
local indie record store that buys and sells used discs, these will
start popping up a lot.  [...]

hi,


i don't know if this has been posted yet - it's from the indigogirls.com
site.

15th june
           a message from amy


hi everyone-
we are four shows into our summer tour. it's good to be back with the
band. we have blair cunningham on drums, clare kenny on bass and vocals,
carol isaacs on percussion, keys, accordion, and vocals, and our newest
member is the fabulous cello sensation matt brubeck (yes, he's dave's
son). it has been a challenge getting my energy back after the daemon
records ten-year anniversary tour. the daemon tour went through 6 cities
with a menagerie of bands from the label, past and present. i came home
from the daemon events to two days of rehearsals, three new stray
kittens, and a new stray dog. the kittens have
homes now, but i had a few precious days with them. the dog - darter --
is at the vet being  treated for heartworms... he's gonna have a long
trying summer, but is a hard-headed
fella so he should be fine.


i have three songs finished for my solo project and am hoping for a feb.
2001 release. emily and i are going back into the studio in august to
record two new acoustic songs for a retrospective album that will be out
in the fall. right now we are starting to gear up for
our honor the earth tour. we will be sending letters out to bands and
prospective donors.
if you wish to make a donation, now would be a good time. the tour is
going to focus on two national issues: the nuclear waste transportation
act (yes, we are still fighting this, but have definitely made a lot of
progress) and the taxpayer supported slaughter of buffalo as they cross
over an invisible boundary out of yellowstone national park. we will be
raising money to grant to many different native environmental groups who
are still engaged in front-line battles against corporations and corrupt
governments. these issues run the environmental gamut and include toxic
waste dumping, coal mining, logging, and polluting of waterways. the
tour will run throughout the month of october and then wewill be done
for a while.


our summer tour includes some great artists that we have never toured
with plus some
musicians that you may have seen with us before. michael franti and
spearhead, a
soulful, r&b, reggae, hip-hop experience is playing a lot of shows.
shannon curfman, the
young blues sensation will be joining us in the midwest areas. also we
have kelly hogan, a dusty springfield-influenced country, torch singer.
kelly has a new record out with
bloodshot records and it kicks butt. rose polenzani and mrs. fun will be
hopping on and off the road, as well as the butchies and michelle
malone.


on a political note... our activism with honor the earth, and everything
else for that
matter, depends on getting out the vote. if you are not registered to
vote, please do. if you
are registered, please vote. we may feel that the presidential campaign
is one big sham,
but senators and representatives on local and national levels really
shape our country's
policies. we are still working with the low power radio coalition to
insure that the fcc's
ruling to issue new low power licenses actually goes through. we spent
june 8th on capitol hill playing songs for senators to help drive home
the message of low power community radio. this is a populist issue and
really has a chance of going all the way. the national association of
broadcasters is really powerful, but we have a diverse, non-partisan
group on our side.


okay. i hope everyone is having a hot and sweaty summer... see ya out
there.


over and out... amy

okay, so here's my review of last night.  first, what i can remember of the
setlist, the first 4 are in order, after that it's kinda random, but sort of
what i remember.

peace tonight
virginia woolf
land of canaan
romeo and juliet
get out the map
go
gone again
chickenman with a song stuck in there
hammer and nail (accoustic)
trouble
philosophy of loss
ozillene
compromise
tangled up in blue
shame on you
midnight train (with the other band)
andy
closer to fine


encore:
faye tucker
galileo
anyone?


fashion report, for those who care:
amy:  black, form-fitting tank or tee, with a royal blue kinda silky sheen
shirt, unbuttoned, untucked, over it.  dayam fine pair of blue-jeans, blue
suede shoes, cowboy hat.  (did she get a bad haircut?  has anyone seen her
without that cowboy hat for, like, a month?)  sexy, sexy.
emily:  army boots, navy "floods" with a cute fringy thing on the bottom,
white t-shirt with a green and white print unbuttoned over it.  very cute.


does anyone know what the song was stuck in chickenman?  it was something
like, "have you been traveling, yes i've been traveling, oh, i've been
traveling too."  it was kinda blue-grassy.  anyone know?  it was cool.


no johnny rottontale or sister, boo hoo.  sniffle sniffle.


go and faye tucker rocked ass!  as did compromise--i like that one way
better live.  they weren't very chatty, but at one point amy got left
totally alone on the stage, and she was like, "this is like a nightmare.
where'd everybody go?  i'm all alone!"  then she accepted some flowers from
the audience and kinda shook hands.


[...] hammer and a nail was totally cool, just the 2 of them with
guitars.  their playing and singing were very precise, except for the
occasional out of tune instrument, but the humidity here makes that happen
sometimes.  [...]
