I'm delighted to discover they're back together, even more so to find that their bass player can write.

quote:
For as long as I've been touring Europe, Americans have been regarded warily. Although our music is much loved, our government is frequently questioned and sometimes loathed. Back in the Reagan-Bush the First era, Camper didn't envision ourselves as the Clash or Crass, or now in 2003, god forbid, something like Rage Against the Machine. Yeah, we grew up on Joe Strummer, but we never wanted to be too overt. That wasn't our deal. But times have changed, dreadfully so, and nobody feels like being quiet. And it seems like we can't avoid politics, no matter what.

I saw the first four words of the thread and thought "Hey, I wonder if that's about Camper Van Beethoven?" Then I thought "Naw, it's probably some crap about RV's."
Thanks 'lance!

"Everything seems to be up in the air at this time" from the Ambiguity Song seems like an appropriate mantra for the world's current state of affairs.
