newest member of Cold Cave (red telephone not included) (more by Rachel Carr)
Jennifer Clavin

Cold Cave have canceled the remainder of their Midwest dates as they reconfigure their live setup. Over the past two nights, Cold Cave's performances in Las Vegas and Pomona featured founder Wesley Eisold and Dominick Fernow with an extended lineup comprised of Guy Licata (formerly of Hercules and Love Affair and longtime Bill Laswell collaborator) and Jennifer Clavin (formely of Mika Miko). The same members will take the stage at the Echoplex in Los Angeles tonight (2/18).

The band will be resuming dates beginning March 6 at London's Engine Shed with the Editors. They hope to reschedule all canceled dates in the near future. [Matador]

So it looks like Caralee McElroy (formerly of Xiu Xiu) isn't going to be performing with the band, in favor of these new faces (two other ex-Mika Miko members have joined Strange Boys).

You can see the new lineup in the video below taken at their Las Vegas show (with Jennifer on the MicoKorg), or at one of the future (currently all European) dates, which are posted below...

cold cave has absolutely no substance. I can't understand why dominick continues to play with them instead of doing new prurient stuff. I hope caralee starts a new project soon and good for her for leaving this shitty band.

This band will likely have a lengthy "ex-members" list in a couple years time, assuming Cold Cave even exists in two years. For all the talk about how it's a band not just a solo project, they sure can't seem to keep anybody around.

They also canceled some shows earlier this month because of the weather. Their tour mates Nite Jewel were somehow able to make it to all the dates unharmed.

Everybody who has ever been involved in Cold Cave has done better stuff elsewhere, two new members included. Weak.

Its not surprising that Fernow would play this rehash music at all. And Mika Mako well thats just another example of a band with no history that is really over hyped.
