It’s always difficult to know how much of what Todd Snider says is the truth; even he can’t tell sometimes. So I don’t know if he should be taken at his word in this new interview, but he makes references to two projects I’d love to hear. One, a rock band side project with the brilliant Elizabeth Cook on lead vocals; two, a song called “Major Religions of the World Ranked By Size”. I also enjoy the fact that he had nothing whatever to do with his new live album, other than it being him, of course, and that he still hasn’t heard it.
I haven’t heard this record… Cause I thought if I listened to it, I’d start chopping it up and fucking it up.
So, I had my buddy Elvis, who tour manages me, and then there’s this other kid, Brian, that they call ‘Magnum D.U.I.’ and sometimes they call him ‘Foghat,’ and he records all our shows, and those two got together and made what they thought was the best of about a year and a half of stuff.
