On the most recent UK tour (Jeff-Mem-Jack-Brett), Mem sang lead vocals on one song. I think this is the first time that Jeff hasn't sang lead, or co-lead (with Jack). (at least this is the case for any JL concert I can recall.)

Anyway - about the song...what was it? Was this a new Jeff-Mem composition?

It's probably the song "Avenue A, Shanghai, Hollywood" from the "Manhattan" album, unless it's something else that I'm not thinking of!

It probably was that yeah! I really love the song. Strange how it still really sounds 'typically Jeff Lewis' despite not having your voice!

Did Jeffrey Lewis and the Junkyard use to play "The Upside Down Cross" live? That would be another one where Jeff might not have sung lead vocals, but probably accompanying vocals with the chorus.

In any case I'd love to hear it live some day Smile

Yeah, we did Upside Down Cross a few times in the recent summer tour dates, I know we definitely played it in Hannover Germany on Sept 5... it's one of those songs that I can only do if Jack's part of the band... but we do sing all the words together on it. There are a few other songs that have Jack doing most of the lead vocal, like Man With the Golden Arm, where I only sing on the chorus or a few backing-vocals words here and there. Or other songs like Art Land where we sing different words back and forth. So there's a lot of songs that I can only do if Jack is there!

That's why I really loved seeing a show with Jack being able to join again last spring Smile
