Jesse Thorn’s NPR show, Bullseye, recently aired a short interview he did with me about two of my favorite recordings. I talked about 3 Ft. High and Rising (since that album literally and profoundly change the course of my life) as well as one of my favorite rediscoveries of 2013, that De Vons 7″. Two corrections though: the intro guitar on De La’s “Eye Know” isn’t Steely Dan; it’s the Mad Lads. And second: Northern Soul began in the 1960s, not 1970s. I don’t know WTF I was thinking.
