1994s 'Glum' was to be Giant Sand's largest record and in order to make it so, Howe Gelb invited everyone along to the party.

This carnival help create Giant Sand's best record to date and 'Glum' is now proudly re-issued by Fire.

Howe Gelb explains Glum's story, "This was our best record for a long time. It had Malcolm Burn producing it with me and it was done up at Daniel Lanois' studio in New Orleans.

For some reason I began singing like an old man on this record, or maybe was inspired too much from my new talking distortion pedal on my guitar.
