The Streams will play our first show in about 20 years at Cafe Nine in New Haven, CT this Saturday night, performing our 14-song Civil War themed CD "Today I Died" (Recorded at the Original Studio Red in Philadelphia by Adam Lasus).
The Streams are David Brooks - Songwriter, singer and guitarist (Dave was also in Twee-Pop faves The Lean-To's), Bill Beckett on Lead Guitar (Enokizu 78), Baby Huey frontman and Original Miracle Legion member Jeff Weiderschall on Drums, and me, Spike Priggen on bass and back-up vocals.
Although the songs are Civil War themed, the music is not. The influences run the gamut from Prefab Sprout and The Verlaines to Led Zeppelin (in fact Dave composed all the songs in an obscure open tuning he copped from Jimmy Page.) You can listen to a few songs below.
This Saturday Night @ Cafe Nine, 250 State Street, New Haven, CT 06511
