RE: joseph arthur

last time i read something about joseph arthur, he was using a lexicon
jamman, but maybe that has changed, that was like 2 years ago.

Subject: joseph arthur

at work on saturday i waited on michael mills of r.e.m.  (monster tipper by
the way:).....we talked a little of looping and he invited me to their
sunday nite gig here in da burg.....he said the opening act was a solo dude
named joseph arthur and that he was a looping singer songwriter.....i tried
to see what joseph was using but alas, the stage was too far away to get a
look.....his looping was pretty straight ahead, percussion from slapping on
his guitar, looped vocals, playing over changes etc.....nice to see and
hear.....what was amazing though was the audiences reaction to his looping,
THEY LOVED IT, i think there was more applause for his LOOPING rather than
to his songs.....his sound was a bit muddy and at times he lost control of
his volume but it was LOOPING none the less.....R.E.M. was fun, a hard
working band and mr. mills was a very nice and generous fellow.....it was
weird watching a "BAND" seeing that 95% of the shows i see are solo loopers
who may jam with other loopers.....anyhow, it took the promise of looping 
get me out of my studio and i'm glad i went.....wow, loopin in the big 
what a concept!.....michael
