Tucson Troubadour Howe Gelb & Giant Giant Sand set their sights on the Shortwave studios. Howe describes how the band formed by the wrath of coincidence, performing 3 hour long improvisational sets, and the story behind Erosion Rock. Howe also talks about the inspiration behind “Tucson: A Country Rock Opera,” thinking about winding down on recording, and how the recent events in Arizona have affected him as a local. Plus, we’re treated to some live songs from their latest album “Tucson: A Country Rock Opera.”

I saw Brian Lopez open for Heartless Bastards a few years ago. Took me by surprise when I heard his name and researched...same guy! Small world. Great music. He played a cover of "Killing Moon" from his album Ultra when we saw him. Stellar.
