Milo hard at work
It’s pretty rare to come across a record that is genuinely exciting and inspiring; one that’s refreshingly idiosyncratic and yet un-self-conciously accessible; one who’s decided lack of pretension and pomp belies some awe-inspiring musicianship. But these were the exact impressions I had when Milo first introduced me to Delicate Steve’s Wondervisions.
A few months later, we excitedly asked Steve and his band to accompany us on our fall tour, which unofficially kicked off with a show in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. For that show, we arranged a cover of Steve Winwood’s “Valerie”, and asked Steve (Marion) if he’d be interested in playing the solo. He obliged, showed up at soundcheck, and tore it up. We had such a blast playing it that night that it became a somewhat regular fixture on our setlist for that tour, and after the tour was over, we decided to record it.
Steve’s such a great player, and his enthusiasm and overall energy is intoxicating. Being able to collaborate with him - both on stage and in the studio - was a ton of fun for us, and I’m glad this split now exists as a testament to that. Aside from his bitching solo on “Valerie”, we provided some accompaniment (bass, violin, keys and percussion) on his cover of Brian Eno’s “The Big Ship”, which was recorded completely live and provides the perfect counterpoint to Valerie.
