Shudder to Think

September 18, 2007

The faithful fans of Craig Wedren were treated to a reunion of sorts at the Mercury Lounge yesterday, when Craig and former band mate Nathan Larsen once again took the stage playing Shudder to Think songs.

If this was an impromptu collaboration and a coincidental function of circumstance, we’ll likely never know, but it was the only acceptable result of the combination of the band A Camp, which features the Cardigan’s Nina Persson (wife) and former Shudder to Think guitarist Nathan Larsen (husband), opening for a Craig Wedren solo gig.

One might hope the set is indicative of a reunion-ized future for these two men, as the off-kilter hyper-originality of Shudder to Think’s Pony Express Record has been missing from rock and roll for over a decade. (Feel old yet?) It seems, however, there are no plans for further reunification.

Until that wall comes tumbling down, Wedren’s second solo record, Wand, is readying for release.

Listen: “Shake Your Halo Down” from Get Your Goat and “Lies About the Sky” from Funeral At the Movies, both available from Dischord Records.
