One Eleven Heavy
Everything’s Better

Everything’s better with a little deadpan sixties US boogie rock. So say James Toth (Wooden Wand) and Nick Mitchell Maitio (DSDV), joined by Dan Brown (Royal Tux...view item »

Wooden Wand
Clipper Ship

The new Wooden Wand Clipper Ship is a fine piece of guitar-led songcraft, on which main man James Toth wrote the music before writing the lyrics. With musicians including Darin Grey, Ryan Norris and Wilco’s Glenn Kotche, Clipp...view item »

Wooden Wand
Ogre 99: Live in Fort Collins

If you like live shows where the crowd is so small that the clapping sounds like it was conjured by five to ten people maximum, 'Ogre 99: Live in Fort Collins' is for you. This personal and breathtakingly private performance sees Wooden Wand performing at Fort Collins, the tape recorder and audience up close with him far out in the distance. It'...view item »

Wooden Wand
Farmer’s Corner

James Jackson Toth aka Wooden Wand is back this week with his latest album of smoky country rock. Didn't he just bring out an album? Is he coming to another period of intense productivity like he had a few years ago when there seemed to be something new from him every month or two? Anyway, I'm enjoying 'Farmer's Chair', he seems to have dropped ...view item »

Wooden Wand & the World War IV

I have to admit I’ve always somewhat been in the “what’s all the fuss about” camp when it comes to James “Wooden Wand” Toth. It’s not that his work is bad, it’s certainly not offensive, but he churns it out at such a pace that I sometimes wonder if he stops to li...view item »

Wooden Wand

Though I've certainly pulled my fair share of Wooden Wand records from the Norman Records stock room I've pretty much never knowingly heard any of his music. I assumed he'd be on the whole Cam Deas/solo guitar hero vibe or perhaps on more of a folky tip so I was fairly surprised when I pr...view item »

Wooden Wand
My Week Beats Your Year

Wooden Wand's newie is in fact an oldie. If you think that doesn't make sense, then you can have a geez at the track listing on the back cover. You will find some of the tracks were recorded in 2000..or Y2K if you wanna be a dick about it. This LP is a collection of his (James ...view item »

Wooden Wand
Death Seat

It seems like seconds ago that I reviewed an earlier Wooden Wand LP. This is his debut on Young God and barely has a label and artist fit together so glove-like. Its dark, back porch, slightly eerie, very bleak, coming from a lineage starting with Hank Williams veering past Johnny Cash, Nick Cave, and resting at the somewhat over populated world...view item »

Wooden Wand
Wither Thou Goest, Cretin

This is my introduction to this bloke so i have no idea how this relates to previous work of which there seems to be rather a lot. I hear that he's about to put a record out on Young God which kind of makes sense as he has the same strange dark singer songwriterly thing going on as a lot of the artists on that label. The first two tracks are chu...view item »

Wooden Wand/ Hush Arbors

It always gets a bit full on here whenever any Great Pop Supplement singles arrive. This morning a box was delivered containg two of the things. So much for an easy Friday at work. The first is a split from Wooden Wand and Hush Arbours. James Toth's Wooden Wand project serves up 'Breather' which is an out take from the 'Second Attention' LP. It's p...view item »

Wooden Wand And The Omen Bones Band
Horus of The Horizon

Also on GPS is a Wooden Wand10" called 'Horus of The Horizon' which was previously a limited CDR thing on the great Three Lobed label. This is 6 tracks of the acoustic Toth gear rather than his fuzzed out wah wah psych gear. This is very much more 60's trad singer songwriter gear along the lines of Bob Dylan. It's one of the best things I've h...view item »

Wooden Wand
James & The Quiet

Wooden Wand releases his 20th album (so I'm told) and I thought we'd write about it. This one is on Ecstatic Peace and it features Steve Shelley & Lee Ranaldo playing with their own instruments. Nice. I was expecting something more far out when I heard this and it's pretty much straight Dylan, T Rex 60's style folk rock. There's some decen...view item »
