In this week's print edition, I spoke with former Jayhawks Mark Olson and Gary Louris, who recently reunited after years apart to record a new album, Ready for the Flood. You can read all about the ups and downs of the duo's friendship and the details about their new album in my feature article. If that's not enough to wet your 'Hawks whistle, check out these additional online-only features:
- Exclusive slideshow of vintage Jayhawks photos from our archives, with publicity photos of the group ranging from the late '80s to 2000
- Full transcript of our interview with Gary Louris, with details on forthcoming Jayhawks reissues and a discussion of the chemistry he feels with Olson
- Full transcript of our interview with Mark Olson, including a discussion of how he has stayed motivated to continue making music over the years
My review of their appearance in the 89.3 the Current studios a couple of weeks ago, with an accompanying photo slideshow of the private show by Steve Cohen.
