I've been so busy trying to pretend that I'm still France and not back in NYC that I completely forgot to link the NY Times article about Paramount records that John was in..If it makes him sound like the world's biggest nerd..well then-what can I say? The boy loves his shellac!
Here's a link to the article from July 12th..NYTIMES ARTICLE
I really don't know how I forgot to write about this..it was kind of a big deal. We got home from Europe and our answering machine was filled up with strangers leaving messages about 78's and music and other things that had nothing to do with the article! Whee! I think if I want to be rich and famous I have to learn how to promote more..So if there are any journalists or reporters out there reading this..I will let you know now that Robert Crumb, iconic cartoonist who has his Genesis Book coming out this fall, will be sitting in with John and I at a gig we have in Long Island at Stephen Talkhouse. It's on October 23rd and i'll write about it more next month..But we are defintely playing on October 23rd and R. Crumb AND Dom Flemons from the Carolina Chocolate Drops will be sitting in! Here's a link to the GIG page of our band site..EASTRIVERGIGS
What a perfect opportunity for a reporter or reviewer to come to this gig and write about it..especially with ROBERT CRUMB sitting in who has his biggest project to date about to be published!!
Alright, I did it..I promoted my band..Whew..my fingers hurt from all that linking and stuff..The Times article is pretty funny and I really am looking forward to this gig in October=should be a swell time for all!
