Walkin' with a Kane

The Mavericks return with another new guitarist, and it's not who you think

It's been longer than three years since Kane last visited his South Florida stomping grounds. He's a little nervous about this homecoming. "I guess you could say I have mixed emotions about Miami. It's a funny thing. I've been through a lot since I lived there [roughly from 1981 to 1988]. The two bands I was in there, the Preachers and Iko-Iko, were two of the best musical experiences of my life. The Preachers were way ahead of our time. We did swamp, rockabilly, punk. We had it all. If that band had been based out of L.A., I'd be a rich, totally decadent rock star by now.

"It's gonna feel good to come back. I have a lot of fans in Miami [like Schantz] who have followed me through all the bands. I'm nervous and excited. That's the tough part about being a small-time hometown hero. I don't know what people are gonna expect when they hear me. I hope they don't expect the second coming of Alvin Lee or something."

Nah. Just someone a little better than Todd Anthony.

The Mavericks perform Thursday through Saturday at Stephen Talkhouse, 616 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 531-7557. Times and ticket prices vary.
