    I had a feeling Milla was going to come up ... if for no other reason than, like her, I have seen more mandolin from First Aid Kit than heard (so far), but I didn't want to mention that, for fear of this train of thought heading down that siding ...

    Just in today - the latest of the greatest - first pics of Katzenjammer's whirlwind North American tour. From The Croc in Seattle last Wednesday 6/23/10. Thanks to Kirk Stauffer for these excellent photos and for uploading them to flickr, and to News Fetcher for, well, fetching. Despite what NF says, it's more than 0s and 1s - it's got a soul. And it looks like someone has a new emando - always good news!

    Did anyone go to the show? Love to hear about it. The set list has 14 songs, two encores, some new ones, but not "Ain't No Thang."

    Well, I know she plays a lot of uke (and banjo) and with tenors you can never be sure. This one also has a 9th fret marker, FWTW.

    FWIW I tune my tenor in fifths, CGDA, so you'll get no argument from me.

    I just don't understand why she is wearing a big fur hat if it's warm enough to wear a spaghetti-string top. Is this one of those "It's only rock and roll but I like it" situations?

    Simple. Because she's cool.

    Red Molly graced the cover of a recent - and apparently the last - cover of Dirty Linen.

    Looking through their archives I see a few female fiddlers - Alison Krause, Rani Arbo, whoever it is from The Cottars and Uncle Earl - but no women with mandolins. A couple of guys, though ...

    Sorry for bending the rules, but I'm a little distraught. I just found out yesterday that Dirty Linen has gone under, as a print publication, anyway. This was one of the great folk music magazines, and I always picked up a few copies every year at the Philadelphia Folk Festival (it was hard to find, maybe one of the reasons it slipped away). They also were one of the few magazines to review the Philadelphia Jug Band CD, and as I recall they were pretty kind. I'll miss them.

    That's bad news for trad/acoustic music enthusiasts. Dirty Linen was a great little publication and covered most of the kinds of music that I'm interested in. Several of my bands got great little boosts from features published in their pages over the years. Sorry to hear of its demise.

    And they did feature another woman playing a mando on their cover when they did a story on A Mighty Wind, with Parker Posey posed on a ladder playing an A style. Ms. Posey actually learned to play the mando for the movie, and even recorded something on it with the Dandy Warhols.

    Good find! Kind of small, but there she is atop the ladder - up on a pedestal, where she belongs ... (swoon)

    I can't believe Parker Posey hasn't graced this thread before. Her name didn't show up in a search. Here is another pic from "A Mighty Wind."

    Yeah, Parker is great. She always delivers a surprising, cliche-free performance.

    She's using a capo!!!! I hear she learned to play mandolin for that role. That movie was full of great roles.

    Maybe she has. If you check back to post number 109, there is a cropped picture of the same one with her on the ladder but it was attributed to another mandolin playing woman named Sissy Knox.

    Oh! That explains it - I believe that was her character's name.

    I hope you didn't look through every post to find that. That's more than it's worth.

    Cheap trick - the upper image background is mirrored in the middle
    Wonder what is really right of the middle - some interstate highway?

    Could be anything - housing development, Walmart parking lot, travelling carnival, a snow making machine, a throng of cheeering fans, a polar bear lumbering along, a wolf crouching, ready to lunge - anything.

    Of course, she just wanted a continuous image that would wrap around to the other side of the CD case. Typically, such images continue to the left, as the case is hinged on the left, but maybe some unipaks are hinged on the right? I dunno. It is what it is. Can't always explain what one finds on the interweb.

    A polar bear would be too cool to cut away - unless, of course, if it is browsing through Walmart's backyard garbage cans...

    Exactly. I was thinking she wanted to emphasize a sense of desolation, so anything appearing in the right side of the frame would have been counterproductive. BTW, now that I have spent more time looking at this (than I ever thought I would, thank you so much!), I notice the mirror point is to the right of the right side edge of the cover. That is, that long image would have to be cropped before the end to fit onto the back of the case - if it indeed wraps around. But what is now bothering me is that her mirror image doesn't appear where it should relative to the mirror image of the background. In other words - PhotoShop!

    Or maybe that's the side where she didn't wake up ...

    Hey, as a photo buff, I appreciate cheap tricks like that. It was used to nice effect and I bet most of us missed it on first glance.
