Aquarium Drunkard, Sevens: Hum/Stars

Check out the latest entry in Aquarium Drunkard’s Sevens series, which reflects on legendary 90s-alternative band Hum and their big radio hit, “Stars”.

How awesome was this band? There was a year when I was in college when I was absolutely obsessed with them. I remember during a visit home to NH, I attended WAAF’s Big Field Day 1998 concert in Lowell, MA with some buddies. Hum were on the bill with Fuel, Feeder, the Black Crowes, Corey Glover (of Living Colour) & Godsmack. Seeing Hum live was the only reason I wanted to go. Unfortunately, we got “lost” on the way and I missed their set. I totally wanted to kick my friend’s ass right then and there. Shortly thereafter, Hum broke up.

God, I miss them.

Phil Selway: "By Some Miracle" (free MP3)

Hello

I just wanted to let you know what I’ve been up to recently in my idle moments in Radiohead.
Over the past year or so, I’ve written and recorded an album which I’ve called Familial. It will be released on Bella Union on 30th August, except for USA and Canada, where it will be released on 31st August through Nonesuch. If you’d like to download a free track from my album then please go to www.philipselway.com. The song is called By Some Miracle and is available now.
I’m also doing some shows and there’s information about those on the website too.
Thank you x

Philip
