Talk about the Fender Jazzmaster, Jaguar, and any other offset waist guitars with us!
Thanks for taking the time to write that and share your anecdote, it’s very much appreciated. It has indeed been a huge leap in quality and interest from Jane ever since the Fallen By Watchbird elpee her music has been coming on in leaps and bounds. I’m also delighted that she’s carving an audience, as she’s one of the good guys, genuinely charming and down to earth.46346 wrote: ↑Mon Aug 10, 2020 7:19 pmwhat a fantastic thread! i'm actually overwhelmed... but have enjoyed dropping in on a few of the artists mentioned.
y'all are doing a great service to these artists, as reading your insightful words about them, well, what can i say, i have come to trust much of the taste of my sisters and brothers of OSG, even when there's nary a Jazzmaster on a given track.
one of the artists mentioned that i already adore is Jane Weaver. i met Jane a very long time ago when i caught the band Kill Laura in the UK. we may have even played the same night, i can't quite recall, it was the 90's, and it was all very dreamy...
i actually was unaware of her solo work, until i started working with Malcolm Mooney (of CAN) in 2016, during rehearsals for a live show here in L.A., i had asked Mal what he's been up to, and one thing he mentioned was the track for Jane. her name had rung only the vaguest of bells for me at the time, but i followed up on it upon hearing the release of Modern Kosmology some months later. this was right up a certain alley of mine from the start, i was blown away by the lush, sophisticated, and very smart sound that was coming from the cool girl i had met in a fellow, not-so-sophisticated indie band long ago.
it's great to see *some* of us evolving yeah, i've gotten a lot better too, but Jane has really got something going!

For better or worse, I follow Galaxy Electric on various social media, so I get regular emails and facebook updates. It looks like they are working on an album... but they have a Kickstarter for putting it on reel-to-reel tapes. I mean, I get that resuscitating cassette tapes has been sort of cool and twee for the past decade, but reel-to-reel??!!?

I really need to do a thread update.
