The past few days I’ve been on the road hanging out with Myles Coyne and his band of Rusty Nickels, in Milwaukee, then on a farm outside of Madison, then in Eau Claire where they’re playing a show tonight. I also had a meet and greet with rest of Arto, Myles’ “rock ‘n roll” band with Jamie Yanda and Cassidy J. David-Weber. Jamie has his own solo act going, and Cassidy has been making music under the name Castles.
Last night I bore witness to a practice of the band set to perform in Eau Claire tonight.The slightly re-arranged line up of Animals in Human Attire composed Myles’ backing band. Practice went on intermittently from 11pm to 2am, here’s a short clip of an earlier moment when things were still being learned.
