The melodies that 10,000 maniacs can offer coupled with some of the great songs and tales of our shores get under Phil Cooks skin, in a good way.


‘In my Tribe’, the third album by Jamestown, New York band 10000 Maniacs released in 1987 remains in my top 50 albums of all time.  The Wishing chair, their second album is in my top 100 and the MTV Unplugged sessions from 1993 still makes me shudder slightly…for the right reasons.
