Silver Jews


Friday, July 21, 2006

David Berman called his first band Silver Jews; they helped define a style of indie rock called "lo-fi" – deliberately rough songs that sounded like they were tossed off while recovering from a hangover. But Berman had never toured with his band; he preferred to make his records and write his poems at home, living off royalties and nursing a drug problem. Now in recovery, Berman is facing his fans for the first time in years. Produced by Jesse Dukes.
