Mark Oliver Everett - Eels
On the heels of the just released new CD+DVD collections, the best of Meet The Eels: Essential Eels and the rarities Useless Trinkets (Geffen), Eels announce a U.S. tour starting March 28 in Philadelphia. The CD+DVD collections celebrate the first ten years of the critically acclaimed and ever-changing entity (1996-2006), while the tour finds them performing at some unusual venues (the First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia and the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue in Washington, DC, among them).

Eels leader Mark Oliver Everett aka E was recently the subject of a highly acclaimed BBC documentary film about himself and his father and has also written a book, "Things The Grandchildren Should Know," already a bestseller in England, it will be published this fall in the U.S. A recent Eels show at St. James Church in London found The Who's Pete Townshend on stage reading from the book. Eels are planning to purchase one-second of Super Bowl television airtime to advertise the new rarities collections, Useless Trinkets.

Saw "E" at Lolla 2006. The “band” was E, another guitarist, a drummer and some muscle bound Mr. Clean guy just standing on stage pointing at people in the crowd acting like he was going to kick their ass. He may have danced too, I don’t remember.

Either way, worst show ever (even worse than Architecture in Helsinki). First off, it sounded like crap. Just a din of cheap, distorted guitars. Second, the “act” sucked. In fact, it was the suckiest suck that ever sucked.

He probably has a totally different thing going, but it put me off him for good.

I've only caught the eels live once. it was in 2005, the tour with strings, at 930 club. This is the tour that was documented in a recent concert film The EELs with Strings Live at Town Hall and I must say as someone who is, at best, only a casual fan of their music that it was hands down one of the most intimate and captivating preformances I have ever seen. The string section was hauntinly beautiful and E was preforming what I think is some of their best material with a bare bones, think joni mitchel blue, almost shocking disclosure. I have seen better shows, but rarely am do I find myself so moved by a preformer/preformance. Check out the dvd from that tour.

wow, tomthumb, sounds like an epic performance! I've never seen them either, but know a few tunes from various albums (all of which I've liked). I'm so excited to see them in April! And at the best room in the nation, at that!

("the best room in the nation" is my slighlty biased opinion of the Fox Theatre ... I've seen some EPIC shows in that tiny room, the sound melts my heart!)

I'm so excited for the coming months and ALL the music coming to Boulder!
