Hey Joe, I bet that was a sight!!! ...even if his band did butcher Emulsified.. ;)
had you not seen them when alex was in the band? or heard their first 2 records? while i love them as a 3-piece - the organ really adds something fabulous - not just to the RS but to many bands.
never saw them with Alex, but I do have all the albums, most all the singles, too. We had lost touch with our friends in Memphis until we went to the O's reunion that one Halloween right before Greg moved to Asheville. All of our old friends were raving about Greg's new band... and of course all the stores in Memphis were sold out, nobody in Atlanta or Athens had it, not at all into mail order then.. so it was a year after that I found 'em ...in Milwaukee at Rushmore, great store! fell ass over tea kettle in love with those albums, but no never saw them with Alex... love the three piece, but the organ really does allow them to play a buncha stuff that I'd only ever heard recorded. man, that really just sounded powerfully soulful on Friday...
and Oh, AMEN! cool! man, sucked so bad I couldn't be there!
