The Can’t See

Monday, November 26

I’ve mined my recent interview with ever-quotable Feral Children a few times now—but for this, it’s necessary. Frontman Jim Cotton nearly had more to say about Can’t See frontman John Atkins than he did about his own record, throwing out statements like: “John Atkins has done more for Seattle than Kurt Cobain”; “I feel like Chris Farley interviewing Paul McCartney when he comes in [to the Redwood]—I’ll spill something every time. He’s my hero”; and “Two years ago, I remember, I was at the old Cha Cha, and I walked in and John Atkins was playing our CD! That to me was a much bigger compliment to me than being played on the End or KEXP, because it’s John Atkins.” Now that drummer Thomas Wright has returned from tour with Grand Archives (where he contributes his skills on the acoustic guitar), you’ve got a chance to see why. With Triumph of Lethargy Skinned Alive to Death.

Listen to a sample of The Can't See's "Taping Over Rain."
