Ordinary Freaks - a RealAudio clip by Seth's group Tangletown.

Tangletown's "national" release date is June 29th, 1999.

From TIERNAN.HENRY@NUIGALWAY.IE (Tiernan Henry) Organization National University of Ireland, Galway Date 8 Mar 1999 01:47:21 -0800 Newsgroups Missy Infermayshun asked about Tangletown's debut album. Ordinary Freaks 1998 Zinc Records Produced by David Z, Seth Zimmerman and Bobby Z. The band are: Craig Grossman: Drums Peter Sands: Piano, Hammond Dan Arden: Bass, Vocals Seth Zimmerman: Vocals, Guitars Contact Zinc Records: 11345 Hwy 7, #416 Minnetonka, MN 55305 USA email: Forty minutes of straight ahead country inflected guitar pop. Reminiscent in places of the Jayhawks, Gear Daddies, and a host of other Twin Cities geetar bands. Seth's voice is very like Jakob's, and indeed some of this sounds like it could have come from the Wallflowers debut. Production-wise it's a no-frills affair, and the songs hang around for three or four minutes at most. Unusually, the album improves as it goes on. Where a lot of bands would stick their best numbers up front, "Ordinary Freaks" gets stronger towards the end. If you like the bands mentioned above, and Wilco and Son Volt then this'll sit nicely in your collection. Let the speculation about the producers begin... (David and Bobby Z... ????) Tiernan
Some sources have said Seth was Bob Dylan's son. Here is a comment on that: From (Shiphour) Organization AOL Date 27 Mar 1999 16:46:53 GMT Newsgroups I posted this before, though it may not have gotten through, so bear with me. It seems to me that Scaduto should not bear the full blame for this error, in that it seems to have come originally from Toby Thompson, and was offered in a context that gave it some surface plausibility. For the record, here's my post from earlier in the week on this point: The original error can be actually be traced further back, I think, to these comments by Don McKenzie--Little Bobby and David's babysitter when they were kids--reported in Toby Thompson's _Positively Main Street_: "Bob's close to the whole family now, don't get me wrong. He was home for just the funeral [of Abe Zimmerman, his father] this time though, because his wife was expecting their third back in New York. Named him after his father, too: Seth Abraham Isaac Dylan. Told Beatty they decided to put the 'Isaac' in because he didn't want the little fellow's initials to be 'S.A.D.'"
Published: Sunday, August 29, 1999 Pioneer Planet Stevens does rocker Vaughn's ghost proud at Grandstand ------------------------------------------------------------------------ AMY CARLSON SPECIAL TO THE PIONEER PRESS ------------------------------------------------------------------------ What: Corey Stevens with G.B. Leighton and Tangletown When: Saturday, Minnesota State Fair Grandstand, St. Paul Capsule: Corey Stevens entertains a sparse Grandstand crowd with his blues rock. Illinois native Corey Stevens is constantly being compared to Stevie Ray Vaughn, and this comparison has been both a blessing and a curse for the blues rocker. Once at a show in Austin, Texas, at a popular haunt where Vaughn was a frequent performer, Stevens was warned that if he played a Vaughn song the show was over. Talk about a bad vibe. At Saturday night's Grandstand show, no one was threatening to kick Stevens out. In fact, from the moment Stevens stepped on stage there were random members of the audience screaming for his cover of Vaughn's ``Lenny.'' It wasn't until the ninth song that Stevens granted their requests with a lovely version of the song. It's almost eerie how much Stevens' voice sounds like Eric Clapton's and his guitar playing reminiscent of the late Vaughn's. Most of the set felt like he was channeling Vaughn's spirit. The songs from his latest record, ``Road to Zen,'' which spent more than 33 weeks on the Billboard Blues Chart, were a bit more rockin' and less bluesy, but they still felt familiar. ``Take It Back,'' ``My Neighborhood'' and a cover of R.G. Ford's ``Crosscut Saw'' off of Stevens' debut album ``Blue Drops Of Rain'' were the definite sparks of his hour-plus-long set. Doing middle honors at the Grandstand was local rocker G.B. Leighton, who has been described by many admirers as being a cross between Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp. Tonight his energetic St. Paul band was met by many fans -- a large portion of the crowd was either singing along or giving a familiar grin at the beginning of certain songs. Leading off the evening was Tangletown, led by local musician Seth Zimmerman, widely known as Bob Dylan's nephew and Jakob Dylan's cousin. The band has also recently contributed a song to the compilation ``Exposed Roots,'' and according to the K-Tel Records release it is worthy of being mixed in with Lucinda Williams, Whiskeytown, Golden Smog and other country rockers. Their set was a more forceful and vibrant sound than found on their debut album ``Ordinary Freaks.'' Songs such as ``One Time'' and ``See Right Through'' easily earn comparisons to other roots rockers such as the Jayhawks and, oddly enough, the Wallflowers. ------------------------------------------------------------------------
