"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/29/17 4:20pm Ike:

Uh oh @Sem, you've made John jealous. He's asking what Irwin normally does w/us. Ha. Wait, are you normally in Lithuania? I thought you were in Nova Scotia. Or is that Coelacanth?

@ike @4:20: Irwin once wondered aloud what kind of name "Sem Chumbo" was; he opined it must be something like Lithuanian.

Yes, on the Atlantic shore of Nova Scotia, pretty much full time.
