"I've discovered a new band!" I can't tell you how many times I have said that to friends, only to find out the "new" band has actually been around for quite a while. Two recent examples: Keiko Matsui, and the Jayhawks. I stumbled upon "Paging Mr. Proust" at the library and after a couple of listens, went right out and bought it. I'm always looking to expand my "musical horizons" (after 58 years) and get a thrill when a CD gets my juices flowing. No "question for The Jayhawks" - just wanted to share some positive vibes with the band! Thanks.
Thank YOU - welcome aboard!
We were just out west in July and played 4 shows in California. There are still plenty of places that haven't seen us in a long time. We'll hopefully be back out west next year some time.
No that was an exclusive for people who ordered early through PledgeMusic. However, some of the material from the bonus disc will be released in a different form in the future.
I was really surprised to see you appearing on British Television (at long last and well overdue) on The Andrew Marr Show. Hopefully may lead to a bit more recognition for you and possibly more TV appearances rather than the overrated groups that seem to hog the limelight. Will you be releasing any new Music in the near future?
Yes, it's been a while since we did BBC TV (probably 2003 for Rainy Day Music). Our current album Paging Mr. Proust was released on April 29 this year and we're currently on tour to support it. As for the future, who knows...
We're currently in Europe through the end of September. Current tour news can always be found on our website: http://www.jayhawksofficial.com/#shows
