"If you like orange juice you’ll like Mushman"

Award-winning Salt Lake City actor/musicians David Fetzer and Patrick Fugit are pretty straight forward when asked to sum up their musical collaboration. It’s a pretty abstract analysis; a perfect way to describe the band’s uninhibited and imaginative sound. Even if orange juice isn’t your thing, the music of Mushman has more than enough creativity to satisfy any listener’s appetite. The band’s name refers to movie star Steve McQueen, who used it as an alias.

Many would recognize Patrick Fugit as the star of “Almost Famous” and other popular films, but his most consistent role in life has been as an artistic collaborator and dear friend to David Fetzer, who writes and sings the most beautiful songs of innocence and experience you could hope to hear. Their influences are varied: Iron and Wine, Elliott Smith, Nick Drake, The Shins, Grandaddy, Neil Young, Cat Stevens, etc...

David Fetzer plays the guitar, the clarinet, the harmonica, sometimes some additonal keys, the guitar-banjo (with appropriate shame), and he sings most of the time. Patrick Fugit plays the guitar, the Flamenco guitar, the harmonica, and, when effectively goaded, he sings a bit. Camden”Camdalf” Chamberlain plays the bass and is a wizard at recording, mixing, and mastering. Doug Grose plays the keys and Ian Aldous plays the drums.

I totally pimped your post in my journal, hope that's okay.

The thing is, I would have bought their stuff but when I was looking for it, like, months ago, I wasn't able to order it because I live in Germany.

I know right, it's so funny! I think we already exchanged a few comments a while ago, btw. You uploaded the How To Be Soundtrack, right?

No problem =)

I know, I live in France, I bought their music first off iTunes, and I could afford this month to get the copies. But in the end it was less expensive than buying a cd in France (and I love going to Germany, I always have a huge budget to buy dvds and cds there). Where do you live in Germany by the way ? I've been there so often. I really do love Berlin, even if I know that Berlin is like Paris to France.

Oh yeah, that's right ! I know now why your username sounded so familiar =)
I'm going to post the How To Be Dvd rip soon. I'll receive my dvd tomorrow or on Tuesday and upload it here. If you want it (I know there is already some rips on the internet though, but I don't know their quality).

Oh, you live in France? That is so cool! I've always wanted to go there, but haven't done it yet. I will someday, though. And I live in Northrhine-Westfalia, about an hour away from Düsseldorf and about an hour and a half from Cologne. I have friends in Berlin and I love the city, but it's like a 4-5 hour train ride each time, so I can't go there as often as I'd like to.

Exciting! Yes, sure, I would love that. I've seen the movie, but it was really crappy quality and that was so annoying. I liked it, and I'd like to watch it again.

Hey, random, but want to be (lj) friends? (:

But i have to say I don't really post often on my own lj =/
