The new lineup is Cripps on guitar and vocals with Stephanie Richard (Secret People) on bass and Chris Owen (Tout Le Mon, Time) on drums. “I wanted this lineup to improvise and play with energy,” Cripps says.
Cripps also wanted the group to play more than just the old Limes songs. He says neither musician was very familiar with his older recordings except Richard knew some songs from Tarantula!, so he’d play a riff and then they’d elaborate. Since January, the band’s created 12 new loosely structured songs that they’ll be taking on the road. “Enough for a new record,” Cripps says.

He also says the dynamics will continue to shift from show to show, depending on the crowd and ideas that arise on tour. “Anyone who’s been to Limes shows or who’s played in the bands knows that we never play the songs the same twice. You know, it changes but you never really know when.”
