oysterhead

The Police drummer, Stewart Copeland has suggested we can probably expect Oysterhead, his experimental jam supergroup alongside Trey Anastasio and Les Claypool, to reunite for another album or tour in the future. In an interview with radio.com, Copeland spoke very optimistically about the idea of getting back together to make something new with Trey and Les. When asked directly about the possability of a new Oysterhead album, Copeland said:

We haven’t actually all been in the same room at the same time for quite a while. I saw Trey not too long ago, I see Les all the time, and we all say, “Yeah, we’re gonna do it, we’re gonna do it!” And we all love the idea, but the two other guys have working bands. I’ve got what I’m doing, but I’m probably a lot more available than they are. But when a hole in both of their schedules emerges, we’ll probably do something. I’d like to get both of them over here to the Sacred Grove, just to do a Sacred Grove track just for a start.

Oysterhead first came into fruition in 2000 for a late night New Orleans Jazz Fest set at the Saenger Theatre. The supergroup trio reformed in 2001 to record their only album, The Grand Pecking Order, and embark on a fall tour. They then reuinted in 2006 for a set at Bonnaroo, but haven’t performed since.
