• 4.18.8 Nels Cline in Studio for Coward

    I barely made it!!! Nels had been in the studios daily since the 15th. Am I getting jaded, or starting to take Nels for granted? I heard about this concept of Coward, the solo album since January. I honestly can’t really keep up with What Nels is up to at all time. Only later I’d find out that this was his first solo project (right?). I dragged myself there at Catasonic Studios in Echo Park and barely keeping myself awake (as usual.) I had a lot of ‘cuties’, the California’s version of clementines. What’s the story with clementines anyway? Aren’t they oranges? But I digress.

    Again, regretfully, this night was the only time I made it to see Nels’s recording. I usually am more diligent than this in following his projects. I was running low on energy and budget. I did my best at what’s I had.
