Cracker's David Lowery and Johnny Hickman are currently collaborating on an album with songwriter LP, who sang the "hidden track" on Cracker's Gentleman's Blues. Lowery describes the album -- which is tentatively scheduled for release this fall -- as "kind of what [Cracker] does, but more eclectic. Some of it's like the Stones, some of it's like Zeppelin, and some of it's like the Clash, But, of course, it's from a female singer's perspective." Lowery says the album will likely be billed as a LP effort, with a sticker indicating Cracker's participation. "I've felt for years that she's a star waiting to be discovered," he says. "These songs have a good sense of 20 years of rock history." (Neil Chrisley)

Brandy Wood - Cracker's new bassist is doing great on the band's East Coast tour!

Johnny Hickman says:
... after recieving a lot of inquiries (cool, thank you) I'm putting together a CD package of my filmscore music to date with artwork, alternate versions etc. for anybody interested. It will consist of the complete "River Red" score (not the songs by other artists by the way) and some pieces from work in progress "The Wasteland". I'm just starting on it so it will be a little while.
