Woah, what is this! Limonaire Brothers Organ. If that was ever on vinyl, that would be keen!
Sat. 9/7/13 11:08am
Cool, I'm about to go to Governor's Island in a bit. I'll bring a mic and a digital recorder. Nice how this will work out.
Sat. 9/7/13 11:09am
Morning, my boy!
Sat. 9/7/13 11:10am
NGH - please send me some mp3s!

Sat. 9/7/13 11:16am

N.G.H.'s Gig Bag:

Sat. 9/7/13 11:19am
Never heard a cover version of Townsend's track from Magic Bus. I actually owned the who album at age 5 and still have that completely flat Decca pressing in my possession. I love those old really flat vinyls before they started making the more flexible ones.
Sat. 9/7/13 11:30am
Their singin your song, Michael!
Sat. 9/7/13 11:32am
You'd think living in a 2-bedroom railroad, there wouldn't be many places for a large bag full of instruments and equipment to hide. The gf put it in the back of a closet that's all tetrisized. Took everything out, and now my studio is full of random crap, but I got the bag and my recorder!
Sat. 9/7/13 11:33am
er, *they're*. Yes, I graduated highschool.

Sat. 9/7/13 12:12pm
"Singles 45's and under" is one of those records that has been a part of every record collection I've ever looked through.
Sat. 9/7/13 12:36pm
fantastic interview, Michael. I don't believe for a second you weren't prepared for it. Even if it is one of those interviews that you are perpetually prepared for.
Sat. 9/7/13 12:38pm
LOVED Squeeze and love Tillbrook's recent work(s), but i will say that that first Difford/Tillbrook record was the most disappointing record i have ever heard (because of the high expectations i had for it).
Sat. 9/7/13 12:40pm
again i emphasize -- saw glenn in recent years and thought he was doing a VERY special thing
Sat. 9/7/13 12:46pm
