Performer Notes
  • Edie Brickell & New Bohemians: Edie Brickell (vocals); Kenny Withrow, Robbie Blunt (guitar); Wix (keyboards); Chris Whitton, Brandon Aly (drums), John Bush (percussion); John Henry (background vocals).
  • The track "I Do" is not listed in the booklet or packaging of SHOOTING RUBBER BANDS AT THE STARS.
  • Edie Brickell begins SHOOTING RUBBERBANDS AT THE STARS with the naively all-knowing credo "I'm not aware of too many things/I know what I know if you know what I mean." From her flower girl looks, to her carefree, girlish vocals, Brickell suggests a musical persona straight from the '60s; but her well-defined lyrics and original music are very today, and not as vulnerable as might first appear. Edie's style is conversational, quirky--in a Rickie Lee Jones fashion--yet very personal, and extremely off-center. Her poetry is intimate and on-target. In "She" we meet a woman who "glows around you like a moon/She smiles at her reflection in a spoon/She reads expensive magazines/She sees herself in everything." In "Nothing" the sentiment is as simple as "There's nothing I hate more than nothing," and "The Air Of December" shows off Edie's best poetry.
  • The youth and innocence exhibited on this important debut is sturdy enough to stand the test of time. And it leaves us with the universal statement/question, "What I am is what I am, are you what you are, or what?"
