Download Glenn Bray on LARZ

Glenn Bray and I got to stretch out over almost 90 minutes for Sunday's Less Art Radio Zine on KCHUNG, playing the music of Spike Jones, Basil Wolverton, Fred Blassie, Omo the Hobo, The 3 Haircuts, Zacharly, Tuli Kupferberg, Bowen Weems, The Dinks, anonymous "blue" country swing 78s, an audio collage recreation of the Sunset Strip riot by Sonny Bono, and much more! We got to discuss Glenn's huge new book from Fantagraphics, The Blighted Eye, and many of the artists represented therein -- including Carl Barks, Harvey Kurtzman, Byron Werner, Cameron Jamie, and others.

I once again forgot to take a photo during the session -- but above is a wholly convincing artist's rendition of what it must have looked like. Although most of the music Glenn selected tends toward the novelty/fringe R&B categories, it came out in our off-air discussion that he actually attended the T.A.M.I. show, saw Syd Barrett live (and post-Syd Floyd in a bar with about 10 people in the audience), BowWowWow's debut in London, and many similar epochal moments in rock history! Guess I'll have to have him back! Sorry about the loud Chinese opera. Oh yeah, and we're doing a book signing at Arcana Books in Culver City on Sunday April 6th - details TK.

And here is the link: the link.
