J. is playing guitar on two tracks of the new Beachwood Sparks album ‘Once we were trees’, bought that album only yesterday, I will write a small ‘review’ later today, first impression: great spaced-out psychedelic country-rock……..October 27, 2001 at 10:21 pm #54836
Beachwood Sparks – Once we were trees
Spaced-out Southern Californian cowboys making some weird and unusual music, some songs start as ‘normal’ country songs and go into a kind of interstellar overdrive after a minute or so, they cover Sade’s ‘By your side’ and make it sound like a lost Gram Parsons-classic, ‘Jugglers Revenge’ features J. on guitar and sounds like the Allman Brothers ‘Ramblin’ Man’ running headlong into J. and the Fog’s ‘More Light’, amazing stuff!!!!October 28, 2001 at 6:35 am #54837
Hey Den Buck,
Just wondering if it lists where they recorded that disc, I had heard that they were going to record the new one at Bob’s Place?

It was indeed recorded at Bob’s Place by Thom Manahan.
J. plays guitar on ‘Yer selfish ways’ and ‘Jugglers Rvenge’.
Found this on a German site:
"Zum Anschieben in andere SphÃ¤ren haben sie sich fÃ¼r 5 Tracks den legendÃ¤ren J Mascis geholt (der auch als Produzent fungiert)"
To get into higher spheres (they asked the legendary J. Mascis to assist them on 5 tracks (he also did the production)
On the album credits he’s just mentioned as playing guitar on the two tracks mentioned before, so I think there is something worth investigating here!October 28, 2001 at 10:59 am #54839
"The name of the album is Once We Were Trees, and itâ€™s their second full-length. The dry facts are as follows:
1.) It was recorded at J. Mascis’ studio in Northampton, MA. J. plays on it somewhere.
2.) It was recorded and partially mixed by Thom Monahan (Pernice Brothers).
3.) It was also partially mixed by Mike Deming (Lilys, Beachwood Sparksâ€™ eponymous debut).
4.) It features a sweetly torching version of Sade’s "By Your Side." For real."

The drummer from Beachwood Sparks was in the Lilys,so that`s why Deming is involved.Deming I think played also with the Silver Jews.
I `ve seen that new Beachwood Sparks album here,so thanks for mentioning it den buck,I`ll check it out sometime.October 29, 2001 at 3:10 pm #54841
I have both of Beachwood sparks albums."once we
were trees", is excellent. Both albums are very good. They opened for the fog last year in S.F. and L.A.
It’s worth mentioning that two of the members of Beachood Sparks, were in an indie rock
band-"further". further was heavily influenced by dinosaur jr and sonic youth. There first c.d. was recorded at fun city in NY and Lee Renaldo plays
on it. I highly recomend them, if you can find any
of their stuff, get it. Any dinosaur jr fan would dig them.
