Skills Like This
Stories like this make be thankful I wasn’t that serious about success.
Jetset has released a remix EP to accompany the Dean Wareham & Britta Phillips album, L’Avventura, released not so long ago. It’s called Sonic Souveniers and features a half-dozen remixes by ex-Spaceman 3, Sonic Boom (AKA Pete Kember).
Lost Highway will release a compilation of rarities, b-sides and unreleased material in September as Lost And Found – Vol 1. Featured artists include the Jayhawks, Ryan Adams and Kathleen Edwards, with highlights including Johnny Cash covering Jimmy Webb’s classic “Wichita Lineman”, a Whiskeytown outtake from the Pneumonia sessions and an unreleased Bright Eyes song, “Trees Get Wheeled Away”. Which is all well and good, but Bright Eyes aren’t ON Lost Highway. What’s that about? A second Lost And Found collection is due in 2004.
