Hey coffee eyes

I'm a sucker for collectives. I love the history, the bonding, and the great music that comes with a group of musicians. Urbana/Champaign, Illinois is home to many great acts; beyond Bob Nanna & Braid, there was the Kinsella brothers. American Football, Owls, Owen...and Cap'n Jazz. I love all, but there is something within Cap'n Jazz (maybe it's Davey Von Bohlen) that just gets me with every listen. Energetic, formulated, honest, fun? Just listen, it's great. They formed and disbanded all in the 90's. Mike's 'Owen' project is running strong still, and with the break-up of The Promise Ring, Davey & co continue with Make Believe.
