We are going to start posting some music from the vaults on a regular basis. Some studio, some live, some unreleased. Keep checking back.
First up is "Blake". (For those who attended one of the Somerville Theater shows a few years back, you may remember a live version of this one. ) In the winter of 96-97, Buffalo Tom holed up for a week in Chappaquiddick on Martha's Vineyard. They were joined by Tom Gorman from Belly on keyboards, who also played a string of live shows with them at that time. The band was in the beginning stages of working on material for 1998s "Smitten" album. A couple of tracks from this time made it onto the B-sides ep released that same year, "Cupid Come" and "Hawaian Baby".
"Only Living Boy in New York" , a Simon and Garfunkel cover, is from the same session as Blake.
"Frozen Lake" was from a Kendall Cafe shows a few years back.
"Sun God" is another from the 8-track recordings at Chappaquiddick.
Buffalo Tom have been writing and rehearsing about 15 new songs in one of the coldest, bleakest Boston winters in recent memory. Lots of animal names in the working titles suggest some type of barnyard theme.
***> LIVE DATES
Shows! We had a nice rehearsal last night, the first in over a year. We are getting excited for two interesting sets at the Paradise in Boston on June 21. That might end up being our only US show for 2014. In addition, though, we will be playing this fantastic festival on Vlieland, an island off of Holland, on September 5. Beaches! Rides for the kids! Camp fires! Beer! We will be doing the "Buffalo Stance" with Nenah Cherry and hanging out with old friends, native sons, Darryl Ann. We will also be playing a warm-up show at our old Den Bosch haunt, the Willem II on September 4. We cannot announce one more date yet that will be in Belgium on September 6. We will do so as soon as it is confirmed. These will likely be all of our shows for 2014. Please come to see us. We do not really tour much anymore.http://intothegreatwideopen.nl/
