mp3: S. Carey of Bon Iver "In The Dirt"

Here is the story of how Sean Carey joined Bon Inver...

While many are familiar with the cabin mythology of Bon Iver, the story behind Sean joining the band is equally kismet. After hearing through mutual friends that Justin was looking to put together a band, he spent two weeks in his bedroom listening to For Emma, Forever Ago on Myspace, dissecting and learning the drum and vocal parts so well that Justin invited him to join the band upon Sean's approach.

That is exactly how I got into The Wiggles, I would spend HOURS just learning those drum parts, and perfecting my Australian accent. Then after joining the band they replaced me after we recorded Whoo Hoo! Wiggly Gremlins!, I swear to god I will get back in that band one day! SWEAR TO GOD!
