“30 years of giant sand

way back when it seemed like a long spans. but no. just a blink of the eye.

the flutter of the lid seems like it's in a slow-motion wow, but any motion is in fast-forward compared to still life.

albums live on a shelf like a still life collection collecting decades and dust.

what do we have here, collectively speaking ? musings set to motion. here in rewind and some in fast forward.

we know there's no comfortable category to place it all. perhaps because there is no categorical comfort.

the forefathers of this output have been set in rock: david bowie, john lennon, jimi hendrix, bob dylan and neil young.

the forefathers set in ivory are probably responsible for what's coming next.

but as far as rock erosion is concerned, with this collection of mega dust, this giant sand, it's high time to call it a day.

30 years seems an adequate number to aptly utter "I kinda quit". there's plenty enough here. more than imaginable.

i'm very eager to see what the next blink will bring. piano for now. songs forever.
so here's to the next 30 years of plunk rock. a circle of fifths in black and white blur. getting on a plane with no guitar bag slung. maybe a hat. .. bolo tie too.

thank you so very much for your participation in all of this. I will never thank you enough because I can't.

we are a fabric. a stitch in time. sonic threads woven by our space age muses.”

Howe Gelb

After this upcoming European tour in April, Giant Sand shall bid a final adios. No more albums. No more tours. The occasional festival ? could be. maybe.

Howe suggests that these last 2 years of touring felt like the best runs ever. Regardless if his memory has misspoken, he maintains the band is not breaking up cause there's nothing broken. It's just being put to bed, maybe one day to be awoken.

Good night little giant. .. good night. ..
mr. sand man .. bring me a dream. ..

As a parting farewell gift, Fire America will release a dreamy three volume box set of vinyl entitled; "The Sun Set".

The complete A-Z of Giant Sand will be released alphabetically rather than chronologically, highlighting the careening career and wandering muse of Howe Gelb and his assembled sun blasted slingers.
