JOEL RL PHELPS



joel phelps is a dude that makes me feel genuinely starstruck when i see him. and i see him pretty much every day.
joel was in silkworm (which everybody knows is the best band ever) up until their 1994 album libertine, after which he left and started releasing music on his own and with the downer trio.

his 1999 album blackbird is easily one of the best rock albums of the last 10 years. it's so fucking good. i dream of making an album this raw and awesome. too bad barely anybody has heard it and it's super hard to find.
bla bla bla i love joel phelps.
anyway, i guess he's lived in vancouver for a bunch of years and i guess he lives in my neighborhood, because i see him ALL THE FUCKING TIME. he's always sitting in this place called zigg's 2 blocks from my house drinking beer. every time i walk by i look in the window to see if he's in there and if he is i get all "oh my god, it's joel phelps!" and kinda have to fan myself and walk away quickly before i faint. one time i was in line at the grocery store and he was 2 people in front of me. i almost died!
thing is, he's all weird and shy and i think he wouldn't be stoked if i ever tried to say anything to him like "you are the greatest human being ever and i love you".
he ain't bad looking either...
a girl i know tried talking to him once about how amazing his music is and he got really awkward and kinda couldn't say anything or make eye contact. which is cool. i guess who wouldn't get weird about something like that?
he barely ever plays live, but when he does next you'll be sure to see the members of ladyhawk standing at the very front and alternately screaming, sobbing, tearing at their clothes and scribbling furiously in their journals.

If I were completely honest, I'd admit that one reason I was OK with moving to southern Cali was that Jackson Browne lives down here.

There are just some people who if I met, I'd fall in a heap at their feet and not be able to say a word. Like Mike Scott of the Waterboys.

I have to check out Silkworm. Somehow I've missed them.

i used to tape citr shows religiously when i was a teenager cause i was too cheap/broke to buy albums and citr provided plenty of variety. all i knew about joel r l phelps was a tape recording of 'all we want' off of 'warm springs night' from 1995 that i'd play over and over. it grabbed me like no other song had and i got serious into guitar because of it.

this year i finally decided to track down a copy of warm springs night and a few others post-blackbird, but i haven't heard blackbird yet.

if i ever met joel i'd try to say thanks, but that's just creepy.

p.s. great list(s). i'm always pushing the awesomeness that is tusk on everyone.

Star struck, hey...I had a familiar feeling like that..like when I met Duffy. I was at the front watching the entire show, but sadly not one that was screaming, sobbing, or even tearing at my own clothes.
But I got lucky and did see your shirt get ripped open by a fan during your set - it got sexy in Calgary that night that's for sure.
Come back to Calgary soon!

hiya, where is zigg's?

joelrlphelps.com is down, but there's myspace.com/joelrlphelps up as a fan page i found. jrlp is the man, it is unfortunate that it's been awhile since we've heard from him. i cherish all of his albums and the live recordings i've gotten over the years. of course, i'm always on the prowl for any videos floating around. thanks.

Funny that you mention Blackbird...I'm listening to it right now, decided to look up what he's up to, and I'm finding that there's not much out there anymore.
I saw him play in Seattle every chance I got back in the 90s. I saw him at a Mark Eitzel show, decided to tell him how much I liked his music, and he was super shy about it. The shows I saw him play were intense but uplifting moments that I'll always remember.
