Why I Must Be Careful Live

Why I Must Be Careful had been on KBOO twice within a year's time. First on the last day before John headed to India to seek a drum master, secondly as soon as possible when I learned they had composed a new live set. I wanted it on the air, and so they played this new set on November 28, 2008.

Drummer, John Niekrasz has performed on Unherd with a variety of projects about 1/2 dozen times over the course of these 6 months of my program. It just so happens he is quite active. Seth Brown has not returned to UnHerd yet, but that means very little. Seth plays the Fender Rhodes, which plays so much in to the WIMBC sound, not just for its antique, detuned disonance, but for Seth's chops and unusual technique.
