Early Day Miners, Unwed Sailor Do Split CD

Catherine Lewis reports:
Stateless, a collaboration among Early Day Miners, Unwed Sailor, and Chris Bennett, will be released on the Great Vitamin Mystery on January 22nd, 2002. This project was put together one weekend in the spring of 2001, with the members of Unwed Sailor and Early Day Miners composing music as a soundtrack to Super 8 footage shot by photographer Bennett from his travels around the U.S. and Europe. His films will be available for viewing on the enhanced CD.

The debut album from Indiana's Early Day Miners, Placer Found, reflects the culture and terrain of the American Southwest and features-- among others-- Daniel Burton and Rory Leitch of Ativin. Yes, that Ativin. Unwed Sailor is the instrumental project of Pedro the Lion bassist Jonathan Ford.
