Joel RL Phelps currently resides in Vancouver, BC. He was a founding member of Silkworm, and he currently plays with the Downer Trio. This fall, Phelps is set to record new material for the first time since Customs (2004). I have been a huge fan of this man's special songs and special voice for 20 years or longer. To have him play the Interurban is a thrill and an honour.

Chris Brokaw currently resides in Seattle, WA. He was a founding member of both Come and Codeine, and currently he plays in The New Year. Codeine's catalogue has recently been reissued by Numero Group and Sub-Pop Records. Brokaw's recent solo recordings include Stories and Tidal Mud.
