jan 26, 2004

i just got back from birmingham, alabama.  it's a foggy winter day
down
south.  i saw
the big sign on 1-20 documenting the number of highway accidents in
the
last year
and i'm thinking about the hours logged on this road by my musical
comrades and
the ones still willing to ride the highways for a place to play.

i have been visiting with my good friends that hail from the band
1945.
what a great
band.  katharine mcelroy is playing bass, singing, and maybe doing
more
tidbits.
hunter manasco is playing guitar and singing. will lochamy is
drumming.
this
weekend, we laid down the first tracks for my next "solo" record.  
its
off to a great
start.  we worked on two songs - "covered for you" and "put it out
for
good".
katharine mcelroy and hunter manasco are doing the engineering -
putting
the sound
on tape.  we are working on adats - sort of antiquated system at this
point, but its
working for us.  we will go to protools next and then back to analog
tape before me
mix.  everything is going down live at this point.  we are just
trying
to get the best
takes and then will go from there.  i plan to work with a lot of
different bands and
find the best combination for each song.  this ones gonna take the
better part of this
year to complete.  i will be doing it between indigo stuff.

daemon is in excellent shape right now.  our current releases by utah
phillips and
david rovics are part of a political folk series with our friends at
akpress.  you may
have heard of utah through his work with ani difranco.  david rovics
is
a hard
working activist and you may have seen him at any number of political
events singing
his hard hitting songs.  i'm really proud of these two releases and
there will be more
from this political series.

cordero's 2nd record is coming out in march and they will be hitting
the
road with the
indigo girls for a march tour.  if you haven't seen them yet, you
have a
lot to look
forward to.  cordero can turn a bad day into a good day, put you
right
back in your
beautiful body where you belong.

i am taking to an amazing punk band out of holland called bambix.  we
are hoping to
do something together for a u.s. release.  i will keep you updated on
this.

kristen hall reports that she is still working on her solo record.
meanwhile, her
country band, sugarland, has been in the studio making a record.

daemon will hae a showcase this year at sxsw.  the acts are still to
be
announced but
i know the date is march 17th or 18th.  if you are going to be in
austin
please come
support our family of bands.  michelle malone will be playing at the
festival as part of
the utne reader showcase.

as far as local bands, i am hearing inspired tales from people who
went
to see the
bands, hope for agoldensummer and telegram.  i am sure there are
more...so got out
there and discover something new.

i won't go too much into politics, because i am just not there yet.  
i
am spending
most of my energy trying to learn what is happening right now.  i
will
say though that
i am amazed that a man like bush is still in office.  his newest
social
scheme - an
attempt to amend the constitution for the protection of straight
marriage.  if that's
not bad enough, he wants to sink our tax dollars into a program to
encourage
straight marriage especially in low income populations.  straight or
queer should be
offended by this.  it's hard to fight on all fronts at once.  when
you
have a war still
going on in iraq as well as a global economic and human rights
crisis,
each of which
is greatly fueled by this administration, the idea of what to do
first
is daunting.  so i
am at my drawing board, but trying to step away from it a little each
day and do some
direct action.

i am attaching a few photos from this weekend (see webpage) and
lyrics
to one of the
new songs.

thanks,
amy

"put it out for good"

i hear the rock show winding down at the high school
kids out on the sidewalk are waiting for a ride
all the punks and the queers and the freaks and the smokers
feel like they'll be waiting for the rest of their lives

alright i hear what you're saying to me
alright i hear what i just can't do
but i got this spark i got to feed it something
or put it out for good.

the stadium lights are breaking through the bleachers
(i spent all day)pushing tissue roses into chicken wire
(hey s.g.a) i'm an overachiever of the wrong persuasion
(a pep rally kid), a new gender nation of a new desire

alright i hear what you're saying to me
alright i hear what i just can't do
but i got this spark i got to feed it something
or put it out for good

*bridge
rub up against me till it gets inside you
rub up against me till its understood
those are not your friends talking shit about you
we've had it bad, we're gonna make it good

*break

alright i hear what they're saying to me
(rub up against me till its alright)
alright i hear waht they just can't do
(rub up against me till its alright)
but we got this spark, we got to feed it something
(rub up against me and)
let it burn for good, let it burn for good.
