“THIS CHARMING COMEBACK SOUNDS LIKE THE WORK OF A GUY WHO KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT HE’S GOOD AT DOING.“ PITCHFORK
It was the summer of 1992 in when John Berry called up his high-school buddy Jeff Martin and basically begged him to let him come over to his studio and record a song or two. John had kicked heroin and it seemed safe for Jeff to give it a try. What came to life was the achingly beautiful batch of songs that landed them a record deal with Caroline Records and the rest is history. The critics gushed about the Los Angeles duo and the beginnings of a cult following was born. But alas, John got back into drugs and got kicked out of the band. Jeff Martin forged on (and off) for the next 3 decades. He's put a new band together and is ready to light up the stage again to support the soon to be released 10th Idaho full length. Also of note: A director named Mark Davis will submit his documentary "Traces of Glory" about Idaho's unique story to music festivals this year.
