Does anyone else love this man like I do. Both "Not the Way" and "A" are totally amazing,but I hear very little about him. Saw him twice this year and the two shows were different but both great. "A" is my favorite album of the year. Any oppinions?

I like "I Went to the Hospital". I downloaded the album, but it's not really my thing so I can't sit through it. I like a few songs, though. That's why I downloaded it. If I met him I would give him $10, but I wouldn't accept a CD from him.

I finally picked this up and it's excellent. Very overlooked (except by 4ad I guess). Lovely country-tinged, tin pan alley tunes.

I really liked A for two weeks then never listened to it again.

He effortlessly satisfies my neo-Reed/Lennon jones. I'm glad 4AD's giving it a proper re-release in '04, so I can consider mentioning it at the end of the year.

Yawn. Let me guess, he lives in NYC now too!

I don't get it, gygax. do you not like cass mccombs?

cozen (Cozen), Tuesday, 2 March 2004 19:57 (fifteen years ago) link

after having to sit through innumerable mediocre opening slots of his for far greater talents in this town for the past 5 years, not in any way whatsoever.

gygax! (gygax!), Tuesday, 2 March 2004 20:03 (fifteen years ago) link

heh. i get it. and yes, i think he does live in nyc now.

I hate to say it (sweet as the Cass guys are), but I agree with gygax. *Yaaaaaawn* Casiotowen has better country-rockin friends and their name is Holy Toledo.

Cass McCombs currently resides in Baltimore MD, the home of the Ouija board.

Follow-up to Wit's End already coming in November. As far as I'm concerned, this dude could release a new album every month and I'd pre-order every one of 'em, so this is great news.

nice. think he played that new song at the show i saw a couple weeks back.

tylerw, Thursday, 18 August 2011 18:12 (eight years ago) link

show was great btw, he's a better performer than when i last saw him (which admittedly was a hell of a long time ago)

tylerw, Thursday, 18 August 2011 18:12 (eight years ago) link

so awesome that he is releasing another album so quick. and that domino is letting him, assume they would want him to tour behind wits end more.
cool cover too

Yes! Sounds like the record will be more upbeat than Wits End. Took me a while to get my head round that last one but once I did it hit hard. This guy is killer. Surprised not more people who think so. Bring it on.

Tip of The Sphere is nice,,, Dan Lead’s pedal steel, especially on "Rounder" is sublime.
