KCRW Radio Sessions

It seems there is a nice archive of Mark eitzel and American Music Club related stuff here at the website for the KCRW radio station. There are interviews and songs from "60 Watt", "West" and "Patriots". I believe Mark as already released one of these as a CD.

Obscure Compilations

Seems there are a couple of obscure CDs out there with Mark Eitzel contributions that I had never heard of before. First is "Dopamine" by Mitchell Froom. Mark contributes the track "Watery Eyes". Second is something called "One Act Plays" by Sonny Smith. I can't find much trace of it on the net anywhere but he is a fellow performer from San Francisco and chums with Mark. Supposedly it is 10 one act plays written for his friends in the form of songs.

Video from Loppen

The tour may be over for Mark Eitzel but the videos keep coming in. Here is one from Loppen where "Johnny Mathis' Feet" get rewritten as "Robbie Willams Feet".

Couple More Videos

Lets see. Today we have the original promo video for Rise. It features a relatively young and clean shaven looking Mark Eitzel.

and then a couple more live clips of the American Music Club.

A shot of the back of the band ?!?!

Jesus' Hands

I thought I had had a lot of hits recently. That is probably something to do with the mention over at indiefolkforever, a lovely blog about all things indie/alternative.

Musical Differences???

In shock news it seems that the American Music Club are down to a duo consisting of Mark Eitzel and Vudi. The official word is that the band will be based in LA from now on and as Danny (Pearson) and Tim (Mooney?) have families they won't be able to make the commute from SF. Presumably Vudi has given up his job on the bus' to go full time now.

However, the unofficial word in a posting from Danny on the Firefly mailing list is that;

"tim and i never left amc, we were not invited to continue! I WOULD JUST LIKE IT ON THE RECORD THAT I HAD NEVER THOUGHT OF NOT PLAYING IN AMC, I DID NOT QUIT. danny pearson"

So there you go. It cold be San Francisco all over again. For me Danny has always been as much of the Club as Vudi or Mark.
