Wooden Wand - Radio Sessions, Volume 1:

1-4: Wooden Wand & Friends
Live On KVRX 3/16/06

Unedited recording of an on-air radio performance of the pared-down touring band (Keith Wood, Clay Ruby, and Satya Sai) in anticipation of the Second Attention album, which would not be released for several months. The playing is loose and a little wild, the way an under-rehearsed, early afternoon radio performance can be, as we prepared to descend onto Austin for SXSW 2006. First-ever performance of the rarely played “The Invisible Children,” which was so new, it didn’t even have a title yet (and really should have been sung in a higher key). I didn’t catch the name of the KVRX engineer who did such a good job recording us, but if it’s you, get in touch so we can give you the credit you deserve!

Babylon the Great
The Invisible Children

5-8: James Jackson Toth

Supporting the ill-fated Waiting In Vain album. I started playing the country classic “Pick Me Up On Your Way Down” after being abandoned by the touring band just six days earlier. I still had about two and a half weeks to go. Three days earlier, I turned 30 years old. Darkness.
