My sole remaining memory of seeing Lanegan live that one time in Belfast (with whoever he was touring with) was how little he interacted with the crowd. And when I say ‘little’, I mean to Lanegan it was like there was no crowd there. He didn’t say a word to anyone, he just sang his songs and fucked off home.
I remember really like the albums he did with Isobel Campbell. Really top stuff and definitely an outlet for his quieter and (dare I say it) kinder moments.
And all I remember about Screaming Trees was that I liked one song and there was too big hairy biker dudes in the band.
