I was just posting this to someone on last.fm and i thought that you might be interested. I like bright eyes, even if conor oberst has gone more toward the folk rock these days rather than the pure angst of, say, a perfect sonnet, but a man going by the moniker ‘captain chaos’ has covered loads and loads of bright eyes songs, and they’re pretty good.
Captain Chaos is a solo a musical side-project consisting of Chris Johnston (a.k.a. Chris Clavin) from Ghost Mice (and formerly Operation: Cliff Clavin, among other bands). Occasionally Clavin utilizes his friends “Colorblind” Joe or McKayla for help. He plays mostly acoustic guitar but sometimes with bass and melodica. He has toured the US West Coast and Midwest multiple times.
He has recently dropped the moniker and is releasing music under chris clavin.
