Does it get any better than Andrew McMahon? While I'll always hold out hope for a full-scale SoCo reunion, I'll always back anything that Andrew does.

Stoked for what's next for him.

stonecoldfox 11/24/12 03:44 PM

Here's to hoping his plans for being a solo artist entail countless tracks of nothing but his voice and a piano.

MrDelux 11/24/12 03:55 PM

I really do not see the appeal with this guy. His vocals annoy me.

baby boy better be doing another reunion tour with SoCo while he gets his solo career together

EDIT: also that interviewer was incredibly annoying

Did you not hear the part about most likely not doing another SoCo reunion?

Yes, I did. And he said not in the near future. Doesn't mean it will never happen again.

Bring on the tour and the EP! One thing I regret is not getting a chance to see either Jack's Mannequin or Something Corporate.

mike'smannequin 11/24/12 09:16 PM

Archael 11/24/12 09:54 PM

his vox are pree cool, better than most of those generic post-fob pop punx bands or or the even worse blink-182 wannabes.

Corgkowznor 11/24/12 10:00 PM

Everything I have read makes it sound like he's not really going solo. He will still play with the guys who play with him in JM now, its basically a name change from JM to andrew mcmahon. This way he can make new music under his name but still throw in a few JM and SoCo covers. I don't think this is a really big deal overall.

kismet 11/24/12 10:25 PM

As long as he does something, fine by me.

Exactly

what's that beeping sound at around 6:30 in the second video, a garbage truck?

True, but it just doesn't seem likely IMO. He's going to be playing SoCo stuff on his solo tours, so I just don't really see a point anymore. Would be cool though!

EastCoastVans 11/25/12 08:31 AM

As long as he's still making music, I'm happy. I'm glad I got the chance to see JM though, and I'll definitely be there when he starts touring his solo stuff.

MJSchmidt 11/25/12 01:25 PM

Really enjoyed this discussion. The more I think about it, the more I am excited for the next phase in his career. I am glad to see he wants to continue playing some of the older SoCo songs. Dropping the Jack's name easily frees him up to do that. At the very least it sets expectations. I would love to see a show where the best SoCo, Jack's, and solo songs are all played together. I do certainly understand his feelings on kickstarter from his perspective. Knowing his consistency, I would still probably support his project if he did go down that avenue. As long as there some cool packages to offset paying ahead of time, I would have no problem with it.

iamthealex 11/25/12 03:40 PM

At this point I'm pretty okay that another SoCo reunion/record isn't happening anytime soon. Purely speculation but I can't imagine anything they make now fitting in very well with their old discography.

mattregan 11/25/12 04:48 PM

All piano please.

Seth Robinson 11/25/12 07:48 PM

I love him, he is still one of my musical heroes, has been for the past 10 years. I thought the last two Jack's Mannequin records were a MESS, boring, and just downright pretty awful (except for the heart breaking first half of "Caves".) I hope his solo career is a lot better than "The Glass Passenger" and "People and Things."

zporter92 11/25/12 10:48 PM

Don't like anything SoCo at all, but his solo stuff is pretty good so hopefully he goes that route

They like, JUST did that two years ago. Let it simmer.

Also it would require the whole band to be available.

It doesn't have to be next month, but it'd be great to do it within the next two years or so.

I was at the SoCo reunion show when they came to Philly, and I'll always try to see them whenever they decide to tour.

TRBMan 11/26/12 07:05 PM

i'm expecting some awesome new material based on his mood in these interviews. he seems super stoked to be going solo and abandoning all the label nonsense. hopefully something equivalent to Everything in Transit.

i'm sure it'll be good regardless though because everything he touches is golddddddd!

IckyErrca 11/30/12 11:06 AM

I love and will always love anything Andrew McMahon does. done.
