Eric's fannish moments, bands that Eric has done pages for.
I've been lucky enough to play with a bunch of really cool people this year
The Folkers and Filkers and other folk I know
Riverfolk, a group from Minneapolis who have been stalking me for some time.
The wonderful Lojo Russo who has done so many wonderfully mean things to me in song circles.
Steve MacDonald who is never ever ever over the top ... ever. Really.
Susan Urban who said the nicest thing anyone has ever said about my songs.
Sandy Andina who is a wonderful songwriter.
SASS which is Sandy and Susan together.
Tom Smith, the Worlds Fastest Filker.
Charlie Parr, the best blues guitarist ever from Duluth MN (and better than lots from other places too.
Samuel Travis Clemmons, Author, Lecturer, Philosopher, Time Traveller, Public Nuisance, Sometime Ne'er Do Well
The Worm Quartet , a mulleted behemoth channelling Salvador Dali ranting about nipples backed up by a synth-punk band made up of rabid weasels on crank. ShoEboX is my hero.
The Great Lukeski who only seems to own one set of clothes, but still has convinced me to buy all his CDs.
Sudden Death who shows that white boys can rap.
The Gothsicles, who show that you can be funny all dressed in black.Hot Waffles, Banjo, Bass and Sarcasm
Raymond And Scum, comedy rock baby !!!
And of course their fearless leader, the one, the only, Dr Demento who paid me the biggest honor of my "career" by playing one of my silly little songs. Thank you so much Dr.
And those people I listen to, but don't actually know
Richard Thompson, for reasons which should be ridiculously obvious.
Shane Howard for being my favorite of a whole lot of brilliant Australian artists.
Bill Hicks who has gone but whose brilliance lives on.
George Carlin, who is gone but never, ever forgotten
Wim Coleman & Pat Perrin, each of them a wonderfully talented writer and an amazing team together.
And my step-mom, Linda Robbins Coleman, brilliant composer that she is.
And my dad, William S.E.Coleman, who is finally on the web.
And many more as I think of them.
