Joan of Arc
Over the course of three records on the Jade Tree label in Delaware, Joan of Arc have developed their disparate set of influences into a more unified style. They mix the songwriting approaches of 60s and 70s singer-songwriters with the abstraction of 90s bands like Sonic Youth and Gastr Del Sol. Their latest album, Live in Chicago 1999, displays them maturing into a quite good and still-growing band. Singer/guitarist Tim Kinsella and sometimes drummer Mike Kinsella were both in Cap'n Jazz. Synthesizer player Jeremy Boyle performs solo (and recently released a debut album, Songs from the Guitar Solos, which samples -- in such a very ambient fashion that you'd have know idea what they were -- from the guitar pyrotechnics of Jimi Hendrix, Kiss, Van Halen, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and their ilk... Bassist/guitarist Matt Clark is also in Pinebender. Guitarist Todd Mattei rounds out the band.
