Happy to see ‘Throwback’ finally find a home, but a bit disappointed it’s not on an MMJ album. Hope the studio version lives up to those smokin’ band takes and also praying it stays in the MMJ canon once the guys start touring again!

Eh, new song is fine and nothing more. Cool to hear him going with a more rocking sound for a solo record though! Still excited for the record, and especially excited to get a studio version of "Throwback" after two years!

Jim posted this a few hours ago on Instagram.

"removador - hello duane- your piece "the illuminated man" was used in "the last whole earth catalogue" in 1971. i wasnt even born yet. i was born in 1978...but i found my copy of "the last whole earth catalogue" about 6 months ago in a thrift store and it blew my mind. i have been feeling increasingly overwhelmed by the speed of technology and its place in our lives and here was this beautiful book/catalogue from the past showing me me all these beautiful things and amazing images to help one learn different ways to look at the world... or "get off the grid?" funny they had no idea back then just how crazy "the grid" would get. or did they? so i am trying to put down my phone... use the computer and social media less... and just focus on real life and the people i love and my art. of course i am not fully "off the grid" because i am sending you this email in hopes of you changing your mind about letting me use your image as it appeared in "the last whole earth catalogue" in 1971 because when i saw it on the page there it spoke to me so deeply of how my head feels like it is exploding with the amount of information we are forced to consume on a daily basis and how that information is so DISTORTED there is almost no longer any tangible truth. the name of my new record is "UNIFORM DISTORTION" because i feel like there is this blanket distortion on society/media and the way we gather our "news" and important information...and more and more of us are feeling lost and looking for new ways out of this distortion and back to the truth...and finding hope in places like the desert where i write this email to you now...finding hope in the land and in the water and in old books offering new ideas and most importantly in each other and love. i feel like there was a reason i found "the last whole earth catalogue" and there was a reason your art spoke to me... and i really think it would speak to others who would see it exploding out at them illuminating from the record store shelf or the glow of their phone or computer screen and feel its organic mind blowing distortion connect with this new music.
i hope you are well and thanks for listening-
jim james"

Awesome news.  Ordered.  Even though I'll listen on Spotify a thousand times more often, I like supporting JJ or ATO in this tiny way. 

Great read above about JJ's passion and getting the green light regarding permission to use the photo.

Very interesting that Throwback is on the list.  I so hope to hear that live again...... please summer tour!!

the 80s will be difficult in a diametrically opposed reason from the 70s (my favorite decade of music)

Interesting read regarding the new album cover, and the lengths it took Jim to get the rights to use it.

I hear you.  If I was going with something other than my essential, then artists like Bob Dylan, Hendrix, Zeppelin etc would have to make the cut.  I was thinking of making an "older" essential with Zeppelin and Petty versus "newer" with War on Drugs and Fleet Foxes making the cut.  But that could be for another thread. 

that's a fun idea...essentials by decade.

YES.  Let's do it.  The 90s will very very difficult.  One of my good friends wrote a definitive list of his own top 50 favorite bands.  He said putting it down officially on paper took weeks.

for anyone there's a webcast on Relix new streaming channel of As The Crow Flies

https://www.relix.com/channel.php



I'm debating watching and reading about these shows or just waiting to be surprised next week in Lexington when I get to see for myself.

I'm going to pass on this one since it's $14.99. Didn't know Marcus King was in the band, that's pretty cool I guess
