Shortwave: Howe Gelb

Tucson Troubadour Howe Gelb & Giant Giant Sand set their sights on the Shortwave studios. Howe describes how the band formed by the wrath of coincidence, performing 3 hour long improvisational sets, and the story behind Erosion Rock. Howe also talks about the inspiration behind “Tucson: A Country Rock Opera,” thinking about winding down on recording, and how the recent events in Arizona have affected him as a local. Plus, we’re treated to some live songs from their latest album “Tucson: A Country Rock Opera.”
