That’s my old band, Prehensile Monkey-tailed Skink, from back around 1991, when Ann Arbor still permitted loud bands… Greg, it would seem, had decided to include us on a show that he’d put together at the point where local music and homelessness intersect. “(I wanted music by area bands) who have advocated for our homeless friends dealing with brutally cold conditions,” he noted after the show. And it would seem that Skink, along with bands like The Avatars, 25 Suaves, Blue Snaggletooth, The Rainbow Vomit Family Band, and The Armed, all made the cut. And, what’s more, it was a pretty awesome set…
If you’re inclined, you can listen to the first 40 minutes or so online.
While we’re on the subject, Greg’s got a new show debuting tonight. The show is called One Louder, and it’ll air every Tueday at 11:00 PM. That’s right… the folks at WCBN apparently took Nigel Tufnel’s advice and pushed the show up to 11:00. (For those of you who aren’t aware of Tufnel, he’s famous for having said, among other things, “If we need that little extra push over the cliff, we go to 11.”)
