I had some butterflies before my first radio interview to support Badge this past week. It had been (gulp) six years since my last, and--like the consummate professional I am--I didn't prepare, and it was a long interview by radio standards (20 minutes). Still, Jessica Glenn of Type Cast at KZME 107.1 had great questions, and I was pleased with how it came out. We talk at length about Badge, but go into topics like "Calypso," the Refreshments, self-publishing and wondering if kids today look back fondly at my generation's music the way I looked back at the sixties generation's. Give it a listen. My interview starts at 30:10.
The Nervous Breakdown Self-Interview I did last week was much easier. This is a series I've been reading for years, so I already had a plan of attack. (B.S. as much as possible!) Enjoy it here.
Also last week, TNB published a new Badge excerpt. This is more or less me trying to fictionalize that moment when you realize your band is getting big. Read it here.
Yours in laying down the law,
