Original Brothers and Sisters of Love

Posted By on Wed, Nov 10, 1999 at 12:00 AM

From the big lake they call Gitchee Gumee to the college town they call Tree Town, Ann Arbor-via-Brighton-and-New-Zealand sextet, the Original Brothers and Sisters of Love (TOBASOL, for brevity) have managed to hold together a loose northwoods folk implosion thanks to a tight mastery of the three "f"’s "Folk," "Fitzgerald (as in Edmund)" and "Fun." Their music, as evidenced on their LP The Legende of Jeb Minor, is steeped in late nights haunting the camp-fire flicker with tales of passing ships, seasons and spectral sketches of Michigan’s rural otherworld.
