Jambands.com Interview: Stuart Bogie Talks Phish, Fela, Antibalas
Stuart Bogie, member of the Antibalas horns and leader of his own band Superhuman Happiness, recently got the chance to play with Phish during their cover of Little Feat’s Waiting for Columbus. Stuart is a highly respected multi instrumentalist, who is best known for his work with afro-beat innovators Antibalas and his touring work with TV on the Radio. Relix magazine’s own Mike Greenhaus had the chance to chat with Stuart about playing with Phish and affect it had on him as a musician. Check out the full interview at Jambands.com:
“It was their chance to play another record they love—learn about the music, and they got so into it! They had the specific pedal settings Little Feat used. I don’t know that much about guitar pedals but Trey [Anastasio] had two of them and set them just the way Little Feat had set them. When we got to the gig they had another drum set tuned to Little Feat drum set sounds. Isn’t that wild?”
As I had expected, this confirms Trey’s use of some new pedals on the recent tour. I will try to get to the bottom of this and find out exactly what pedals the Bad Lieutenant was using…Stay tuned.
