Sound of Satellites

With the new release Satellite Rides, the Old 97's continue their transformation from a country-rock band to a more expansive outfit.

For now, though, the Satellite Rides tour is the order of the day. Miller says that the band is also in negotiations for an opening slot on a high-profile summer tour, despite their refusal from day one to fit into anyone's preconceptions. "Our thought was that if we made a band that didn't sound like anyone else, we wouldn't have to worry about being signed to a major label," he says, clearly noting the irony. But even if things haven't turned out the way they always foresaw them, the Old 97's are happy with where they are. Miller believes rock & roll is almost its own reward: "We've met Exene Cervenka, Charles Thompson [a.k.a. Frank Black], Robyn Hitchcock ... that's one of the best things about where we are now, getting to meet these people and be considered a peer."
