... but I don't hear the accordion on Nora. Where is it. I feel so dumb.

That said, Ken should've played Maracas on WIPTF. He fucking slays on those things, to quote a popular phrase. Never have I witnessed such a passionate Maracas Shaker. It was moving.

ooooooooh yeah! ken is one passionate, sexy maracas player (even tho he is still in desperate need for a haircut). and i was deeply impressed with the way he augmented his maracas rhythms with his *cough* dancing movements. he had obviously gobbled up a fair bit of irish culture before going on stage that night (and no, i'm not talking exclusively about fermenting yeast cultures there *g*). cool, cool, cool, more maracas for ken NOW!

Eric played the damn thing and it's all over the track. It's the wheezy sounding drone, like a really sick Canada goose on infinite repeat.

Ahh, got it! Just when you think you actually know what an accordion is supposed to sound like... anyway, at least now I know what a sick Canadian goose sounds like.

even tho he is still in desperate need for a haircut


Judging from the fact that he looks rather pale and that he's obviuosly got a knack for exotic percussion instruments (and dance moevements) and Hawaii shirts, I'd say what Ken really needs right now is a vacation to the Bahamas... or something...

apparently he has plans for performing in Cuba and doing a tour in West-Africa, so that should do the trick

Let's just say he looked WAY better when he was on tour with The Long Winters. I remember at one point he started talking Spanish to the audience in Cleveland (whatever sense THAT makes in the midwest)...
He probably shouldn't hang out with Mike Mills that much.

well last year he looked edible, yum!

(a) he needs a haircut
(b) he needs a drink

he seems way too sober at the moment, never a good idea! and that white suit black shirt comobo looked way more swell on him when he was in dublin last than it did this timel...

on the topic of accordions, have any of you seen The Decemberists play? Talk about slaying, that girl rocks the accordian (and keyboard for that matter) like it's nobody's binness.
