You're said to be a literary band...Any books y'all would recommend? Other than Mark Twain, of course, who today would be called T-wain.
Ha! T-wain will always be hip. I'm reading "In the Garden of Beasts" by Erik Larsen right now and it's pretty good. I also just finished a sci-fi book called "The Light of other Days" which was a fun read. If you're looking to read or re-read a classic, Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath never disappoints...especially in these times of economic woe and want. It's WAY too early to tell, but it's been the genesis for a few song ideas which may or may not make it all the way to the next album.
