In 1988, Edie Brickell & New Bohemians grooved onto the mainstream scene with their album Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars. The album reached number 4 on the U.S. charts.
The album would produce their biggest hit, “What I Am” which reached number 7. As you can imagine, I bought the cassingle immediately (and much later–as an adult with a checking account and a car–the CD.) The band released a second album and then Edie split to work on her solo stuff (plus film and stage and, oh yeah, she married Paul Simon.) In 2006, the group released Stranger Things, their latest album to date. Check out their catalog, but first, let’s head back and remember Edie and the Bohemians and what they am. I mean, are.
