Split Single

Support 88Nine And This Artist:

Just after Britt Daniel of Spoon launched his supergroup Divine Fits, came the announcement that he'd started another band called Split Single. This one would be fronted by Jason Narducy (formerly of Verbow, currently of Bob Mould's band), Daniel would play bass, and it would also include Supercunk/Mountain Goats drummer Jon Wurster. "Three guys, one mic. Just like how Elvis and Yes recorded," Wurster said of their recording process. The nucleus of Split Single came into being during a rare lull for Narducy at the end of 2011. Narducy hadn’t written new original material for eight years – until an unexpected challenge popped out of the ether: a friend, Steve Dawson, asked Narducy to do a solo set to support Dawson’s band Dolly Varden at famed Chicago venue Schubas in January. “I thought, ‘What if I wrote and played ten new songs?” Narducy says. “The show went well, and three songs I’d written for it – ‘Never Look Back,’ ‘Love Is You,’ and ‘My Eyes’ – actually ended up on Fragmented World. I was happy being a band guy, and still am – I’ve had enough day jobs to realize this is the best one ever – but I ended up writing forty more songs. I realized I had to do something with them.” Official Site: www.splitsinglemusic.com Read more on Last.fm.
