On the Radio
local gal made good (and now living in the big city) Tift Merritt was back in NC recently and was kind enough to have me on her interview show The Spark, which she records for Marfa Public Radio...we talked about writing songs and listening to songs and record covers and all kinds of things, check it out here!
The Damned - Strawberries (i first heard this record when i was in high school at a hardcore show in Durham at this Rasta place where they had shows...HR was playing (the Bad Brains had recently broken up, not for the last time). his band was amazing, and the guitar player sat in their van by the door of the club listening to the song "Dozen Girls" from this album over and over again, just rewinding the tape)
