Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: 10,000 Maniacs Rediscovered

When I last showcased 10,000 Maniacs in August 2009, I thought the alternative rock band had broken up following the departure of singer Natalie Merchant. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the group is still performing and has a web site and YouTube channel. What's more, they're fronted by Mary Ramsey, an impressive, strong lead vocalist in her own right and a violist. Above the band performs "Love Will Tear Us Apart" at the Scharmann Theatre, Jamestown, NY, January 16, 2010.

Thanks for the mention. Natalie quit the band 18 years ago. Our guitar player, Robert Buck died 10 years ago. We miss him very much. We are still playing and writing songs and this year- 2011 - we'll celebrate our 30th Anniversary with a new record and some select concerts around the country. Follow our antics on facebook.
