>>>>>Interview with Tom Rapp, founder of the folk/psyche group
Pearls Before Swine

Mr. Rapp has spent the last 20 years or so creating a second career as a Civil Service lawyer, working on the side of the plaintiff. His son, David (who has his own band, Shy Camp) coaxed Tom out of musical retirement last April for the Terrastock Festival. I had the pleasure of seeing them perform on a bill with Damon and Naomi at the Knitting Factory July 1. Following the show, I became curious about Tom Rapp and found Carl Edwards very comprehensive Pearls Before Swine enthusiast's page. From that page I was able to contact Mr. Rapp and have a chat with him on WFMU. Check out these page links--you'll find a lot of great information about Tom Rapp, and about the releases of the tribute album ("For the Dead in Space") and a Pearls Before Swine compilation of the Reprise releases.

*Tom Rapp"For the Dead in Space"Stardancer
Galaxy 500"Summertime"Copenhagen
