Re: one man bands

I also remember "Hi-Octane" with our hosts Sophia Coppola and Zoe Cassavetes. Great NY indie spuzz variety show. It ran maybe 3 episodes, with one feature called "Thurston's Alley". Thurston Moore, on a lawn chair in a SoHo alleyway behind his apartment, would interview classic punk heroes like Joey Ramone. Solid gold!!

My fellow country-man Vaiko Eplik!

I love the harpsicord. I love the verbal annunciations instead of lyrics as for example Stereolab does in Parsec. Thanx!

Re: one man bands

crazy, man. Thurston can be a good host. He can fade slightly to the background so that the guest gets the highlight.

Re: one man bands

Some of the replies seem to be just solo artists. What makes it a one man band? I'd say that the name has to sound like a band but it is actually just one guy. I don't even reckon Panda Bear qualifies as it is just his stage name.

So I like:

Advisory Circle
Prefuse 73
Donosaur Jr (I know they were originally a band and returned to being a band but for a long time, it was really just J Mascis)
Tune-Yards (although it is a one woman band)
Belbury Poly
