Thanks for sharing this interview - great read! I'm doing a Panic show next Wednesday - this is helping get my excitement level going (as if it needed any help... )!

Thanks Adam! Really nice article. Wish I could hear Jimmy more often - ARU was amazing last November at Down on the Farm in Quincy. The recording of that show hasn't left my player at the office since! Haven't heard him w/WSP yet. Hope all's well with you - missed ya at GABBA! See you NYE? Going to the Mule in Atlanta? Keep in touch!!!

great interview.


indeed!

Funny thing. He mentions WSP discovering ARU in early 1989 at the Little Five Points Pub (the bar he referenced with 99-cent beer night), as if his memory has perfect clarity on that event occurring. He wasn't even there! Jimmy didn't even join ARU until spring of 1990. And no, it wasn't that he just mixed up the years in his mind. WSP did discover ARU in early 1989. ARU opened for, and toured regionally with, WSP many times in 1989 before Jimmy joined the band. The ARU December 1989 show from Center Stage Theatre that is widely circulated was a night they opened for WSP in Atlanta, and that has the previous guitarist and Mosier in the band then. Just thought it mildly amusing. Perhaps he heard the story so many times that he thought he was there.

But great interview. I am happy Jimmy has found a spot that he's digging. Here's hopin' to more ARU reunion shows too!

Thanks! Love Jimmy and I'm looking to get tickets for the Dec 30th Widespread Panic show seeing how I'll be in the area for NYE at the Fox!

Charlie "the Deacon" Williams. I'll just copy/paste from the ARU guestbook:

[Charlie]’s still alive and well. He’s got his own Django-inspired acoustic gypsy-swing jazz band called The Bonaventure Quartet, that’s gotten some rave reviews among the Django underworld. Mark Bynum, one-time Fiji Mariners bass player is playing with them now, since Kris Dale recently left to play bass with Bruce’s new Quark Alliance band. Small world in the Bruce universe. But anyway, they play around town a good bit: http://www.thebonaventurequartet.com.
Charlie’s also recently been writing for and performing with Bernadette Seacrest of late, and they’ve had some gigs around town too and I think they’ve been working on getting some dates in Europe. http://bernadetteseacrest.com.

Charlie and Sipe had a fusion band around '87 or '88 called Mystificus. They had Oteil and Kofi in the band and Jimmy as well. I don’t think they gigged around town or anything, but I know they did some writing and recording – I had a recording of a few songs on an analog cassette many years ago that I have since lost. Still kicking myself for losing that. I recall it sounding Alan Holdworth-ish, who was real big at the time. I think Sipe was the first to start playing with Bruce at Bruce’s weekly gigs at the Little Five Points Pub, and soon the others did too. I believe the lineup first gelled around Bruce, Sipe, Charlie and Oteil – along with Mosier – and that’s when they went with the ARU name. This is probably late ’88 or so. Mosier left first in early 1990, and Jimmy came in and replaced him. Not sure who exactly get credit for bringing Jimmy in, but it was a great decision! So briefly Charlie and Jimmy did some gigs together in ARU, although I don’t think any tapes of them playing together in ARU have ever surfaced. Then Charlie left and they got Mundy and also brought Mosier back and that lasted a few months as a 6-piece. There are a few shows floating around – both audio and video – from the spring of 1990 that feature both Mundy and Mosier, along with Bruce, Sipe, Oteil and Jimmy. Sometime in mid-1990 Mosier left for good and you had the Capricorn lineup, and things just took off from there.
