I'm sure all you smart lawyer types know that Force Majeure is a lovely
term of art. I've always thought it would be a good song name.
Recently, when I looked up the definition I found that Force Majeure
clauses cover natural disasters, Acts of God, war and the failure of
third parties. I've always wanted to be in a band that covers stuff
So now Force Majeure is the temporary name (until we get the cease and
desist order) for Bryon Settle and I in our
guitars-from-under-the-sea-and-outerspace-and-some-coal-mine duo mode.
We've booked into Wetlands for a September 12 show. It looks like a
wonderful bill with Paleo and The Scourge of the Sea.
I have a longer post about this with some local music history and a
nine-minute audio file (I heart my Edirol) from Wednesday's so-called
rehearsal at the iLud site: http://www.ludland.com/ilud
If you haven't been there or to myspace/ludland, there's also a movie
of the Lud recording session in the Music Loft with Brian Paulson. It
is a madcap laugh riot.
