Mercury Rev man joins Sophia on European tour

For those of you who are curious about who the new keyboard player is on the current Sophia tour, wonder no more: it's Anthony Molina From Mercury Rev. He had this to say about it on his blog:

"Well after some time now Robin Proper-Sheppard (God Machine, Sophia) and I are collaborating once again. I will be joining his band Sophia on tour throughout Europe this month.

It was back in 1998 when Robin came into the Brooklyn, NY rehearsal space of my band Blanco. With my brother Jason Molina (Longwave) on drums and Phil Schuster on Bass he produced & mixed 3 tracks that would make it on to our self-released Carnival e.p.

On this 16 date Tour of the EU I will be playing piano and guitar joined by Adam Franklin of Swervedriver on guitars as well as a full string quartet.

Wow, there are two semi-famous Jason Molina's?

The other Jason Molina was the frontman for Songs:Ohia and Magnolia Electric Company. I'm pretty sure they're not the same guy though...
