1.22.2000  Utahs work with Chuck D
(from BBC Online Radio 1 website)
Utah Saints are making the most of their comeback. They've enlisted the talents of Chuck D for their next album. They've also used the vocal talents of funk soul legend, Edwyn Starr, and sampled Iggy Pop from his days with the ĎStoogesí.

The Utahs spent their few years away from the limelight very differently. Jez had his own radio show in Leeds, whilst Tim DJ-ed in Chicago. They say getting Chuck D to perform on their album's been the biggest buzz, not that they've met him yet: "We didnít hear anything back and then suddenly out of the blue just before Christmas, I got a phone call and he was up for doing it. So itís in the process of going through, but no, we havenít met him yet". And they add: "Itís a great honour to have someone like him because heís such an icon of really the last decade and this decade as well. One of the most important spokespeople of the last decade."

And they can add REM to their list of supporters: "Michael Stipeís said that itís his perfect driving record and that he likes driving around LA listening to our album. He also bought several copies of our album to give to his friends apparently which was nice."
