Ben Gibbard and Jay Farrar - Words and Music - 2009

by Alisa Ali
Jay Farrar of the Midwestern alt-country group Son Volt and Ben Gibbard of the Seattle Indie Rock group Death Cab for Cutie are not the most likely of pairings for an album, But, they both were big fans of the writer Jack Kerouac, and when Jay agreed to score the movie 'One Fast Move or I'm Gone: Kerouac's Big Sur' and Ben showed up to sing on a track, they thought, 'hey, one song went so well. why not try a whole album?' Thus, the 'One Fast Move or I'm Gone' sound track was born, and to talk about and share their creation they sat down in FUV's studio-A with Alisa Ali. (10/29/09)
