The Shining Hour acoustic version 3. After a few weeks of rehearsals, recording finally commenced in November While at Hollywood's Cherokee Studios, I began searching for a title that might compliment the tone of childhood memories that had evolved in the lyrics. I recalled a long stretch of road where I grew up which led to a nearby copper town, it was called Copperopolis. The word itself had a mythical ring to it, which also suited the visual art that I was creating, images that would become the album art.

In keeping with the sweeping breadth of Fuzzy and Mighty Joe Moon, Copperopolis Album) for a similar diversity. There's a strange juxtaposition of songs rooted in the very personal and also those that are entirely public. One of the album's finest moments, is arguably "Bethlehem Steel".

We all kind of look at this record as an end to that trilogy. I'd be anxious to strip a lot of the jewels and emeralds away and bring it down to the bare earth. Bring it back down to the guitar and the drums and the voice.

Copperopolis is our most ambitious work. But I like the energy of just going in front of an audience and playing a song that's dependent upon a minimal amount of parts.

It's sort of a cloudy album in feeling but sun does break through here and there. It's a product of it's time for me personally and also a social diary. The Oklahoma city bombing had occurred and that partly inspired "Homespun". Source: Messages From Beyond. And I stand behind the record, it's just that I think a lot of folks had a hard time understanding it, because there really was no context for it, it was as though it came out of the blue.

I've noticed that while we are on tour, I tend to write very solitary things when I go back to the hotel. When I'm away from that ritual of volume and adrenaline, I'll write a song like "Homespun" at in the morning. There is a sense of rage in the lyric that was brought on by news from home. For instance, the Oklahoma bombing was still a fresh story, as was the growing militia movement in the US.

There was this climate of upheaval, and the writing of Album) was prompted by that climate. The most dramatic news that was to be aired was news of violence.

At the same time, there were these rising militia movements. Whether they had been around for a while or not, whether they were an army marching through the Midwest or whether it was just three guys, it began to take precedence in the media. Some of the most dramatic art and pop that was being made was violent in Grant Lee Buffalo - Copperopolis (CD, too. And so, I was just trying to cope with that, process all of that.

It's the Life 4. Sing Along 5. A: No, you're right. We've only shipped it to radio so far. Actually, when Copperopolis came out, I was pushing Bethlehem Steel to be the first single, since we consider it the album's centerpiece.

There's an edit of it that's about three minutes shorter that the album version. It's a whole 'nother mix, and that would have been our preferred choice for an initial single. By the time you get around to your third single, radio programmers have already moved on to whatever's happening that week.

The new Marilyn Manson, or whatever. Not to say I'm bitter about it, but, in hindsight, I think it would have been smarter to go with Bethlehem Steel first. Source: Goldmine Magazine, Interview: Inspired by the legendary steel town of Bethlehem, PA, and in more general terms, the theme of human aspiration.

The lyric is set against a dark and grinding soul groove. It's admittedly an odd amalgam yet probably one of the album's most unconscious efforts. Question: Its funny listening to Copperopolis that Bethlehem Steel went out of business. GLP: I think I heard that, it's no more. I ought to send them a copy of that record. I began writing that song when were on the road with Paul Westerberg in and I had seen signs for Bethlehem Steel.

Later, a few years later we wound up in Bethlehem Steel and approached the thing like Dominic Dunne from a journalistic standpoint. Joey and I went traipsing into the woods through a faint drizzle and found a log to sit on.

I had continued to write while on tour and occasionally the three of us would find a moment to work through new material. Playing short concise sets as an opener left us with little time to experiment onstage. The general feeling was that if we were to create a third album of substance, it would require time to gestate, and a much needed period of grounding back at home.

In the summer of that year we finally unpacked our bags in LA, and I soon began to write for the next album with a daily Album) of discipline.

9 thoughts on “Grant Lee Buffalo - Copperopolis (CD, Album)

  1. Copperopolis is the most insular, personal work of singer/songwriter Grant Lee Phillips to date. It is an album of sensitivite expression and deep soul. With songs such as, "The Bridge" and "All that I Have", Phillips displays beautifully personal narrative in ways that few artists can, regardless of genre/5(26).

  2. 's Copperopolis is an album that lurks in a strange sort of limbo -- it's a fine record that also happens to be Grant Lee Buffalo's weakest LP.
