The singer/songwriter’s obviously best known for his work with Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Sometimes Young. But followers of his solo work know that his interest in photography dates back at least to 1971, when he appeared clutching a camera on the cover of his solo record, Songs for Beginners. Nash selected all the shots for the show, which features like the likes of Elton John, Neil Young, and the Notorious B.I.G. The show includes some local shots from Tacoma (of Neko Case and Her Boyfriends), and Bremerton (Charles Peterson’s pic of the crowd at EndFest 1991, after the jump).

SEATTLE MAGAZINE PROFILES FRETBOARD JOURNAL

On a Friday in Ballard—one of spring’s first sunny, warm days—Jason Verlinde has taken a booth just inside the dark cave of Hattie’s Hat. It’s a fitting backdrop for a discussion about his passion, the guitar-geek magazine Fretboard Journal; the debut issue (in 2005) featured a story by alt-country crooner Neko Case, who grew up in Tacoma and once worked on the kitchen staff at Hattie’s. Case, who hadn’t yet released Fox Confessor Brings the Flood, the CD that propelled her past the swirling din of other indie songwriters onto the national radar, wrote the piece (on Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Louvin) as a favor. This magazine model—articles born more out of personal interests and knowledge, rather than timely hooks—is one that has stuck, in spite of other uncertainties at the publication’s beginning.

AV Club INTERVIEW WITH NEKO CASE

neko-caseAV Club:
In the epic battle between Man and Nature, Neko Case’s allegiance is clear. On her 2004 live album, The Tigers Have Spoken, she sings on the title track about a captured tiger: “They shot the tiger on his chain / in the field behind the cages / he walked in circles ’til he was crazy / and he lived that way forever.” On 2006’s Fox Confessor Brings The Flood, Case tries to save a bird from certain death in “Maybe Sparrow.” The empathy continues on the new Middle Cyclone, both for man-eaters on “People Got A Lot Of Nerve”—“You know they call them ‘killer’ whales / but you seemed surprised when it pinned you down to the bottom of the tank”—and nature in general on “This Tornado Loves You.” It all goes to show that Case is fascinated by what can’t be tamed, which her own rootless life has undoubtedly influenced.
