Product Description & Reviews

With several critically acclaimed records already under their belt, The Handsome Family showcase their stripped down live sound with Live at Schuba's. The duo of Brett and Rennie Sparks combine Brett's haunting, baritone vocals with Rennie's hilarious in-between song banter to create a delicate balance of dark humor and sweet Americana balladry - a unique mix of vocals, guitar, bass, and the most creative use of a drum machine in the music business. Singing morbid mini-operas over simple country chord progressions and ungainly programmed rhythms, the Handsome Family were once a better concept than a live band. Their early shows, Rennie Sparks writes in this disc's notes, "elicited chair-throwing and death threats." Live at Schuba's Tavern is more than proof of Rennie and husband Brett's maturation as performers; recorded in December 2000, the set--drawn mainly from In the Air, Through the Trees, and Milk and Scissors--stands as a greatest-hits collection for a band that's as likely to hit the big time as an experimental bagpipe troupe. It's also a fine comedy album, rife with bickering shtick and oddball anecdotes. And not least, this document of one of the duo's last Chicago gigs (they moved to Albuquerque in 2001) is a typically macabre mash note to the city that served as both the Handsome Family's home and muse. Fittingly, it closes with "The Woman Downstairs": "I dreamed of lying down on the el tracks," Brett rumbles over Rennie's wheezing melodica. "The trains roared by under smoke-gray skies/Lake Michigan rose and fell like a bird." --Anders Smith Lindall
