Episode 080: Tim DeLaughter

In 2013, The Polyphonic Spree released, quite possibly the best album, a
decade into their existence — quite the feat for a band many had
written off as little more than novelty the first time its 20-odd
members took to the stage in matching robes. But, then, Tim Delaughter
has built a career out of defying exception. The Spree itself was
one of those crazy sorts of what ifs that artists sit around and
discuss but rarely ever deliver on: as much a happening as a band, with
two dozen members in choir outfits, born out of the dissolution of
Tripping Daisy a damaged 90s psychedelic alternative act that recorded a
handful of wonderful records that will forever be relagated to the Buzz
Bin of history for its sunshine single “I Got a Girl.” Delaughter’s
determination is the glue that’s held his deeply satisfying pop
experiment together since 2000 in the face of financial strain and all
of the other numerous logistical considerations that come with such a
massive operation at a time when similarly positioned groups with
roughly one-eight the band members struggle to make ends meet.  The
singer looks slightly worse for wear when we sit down upstairs at
Brooklyn Bowl in a meeting spot oddly positioned just outside the ladies
room before the doors have officially opened. But once the music starts
— after a very brief but extremely wedding ceremony between audience
members — the band puts on a show with every ounce of energy that
defined the Spree in its nascent days. Over the years,
unsurprisingly, members of the massive group have come and gone, but
Delaughter has maintained his position as the excited and chaotic
nucleus. The band has already outlived Delaughter’s previous group, and
if Yes It’s True is any indication, The Polyphonic Spree still has
plenty of life ahead of it.

This was a fun one. Truth be told, one of our girlfriends recommended we interview Tim. She thought it'd be interesting. And it certainly was. This was recorded in the cafe at the Black Cat, a venue located off of 14th St in D.C. Special thanks to the Black Cat for turning off the ceiling fan and the music they normally listen to as they craft their delicious meals.

Seated at a booth, Tim DeLaughter gave us his story. It was filled with triumph, sadness and rebirth. I'm not going to give away any more than that.

Special thanks also go to Greta and Denver for helping arrange this interview.
