I briefly lived with an engineering student in college. During the window when I was 21 and he wasn't, we had an arrangement: I would buy him alcohol in exchange for handmade electronic musical gear. The best of the lot was an old-fashioned telephone converted into a microphone (complete with distortion). I think I paid a bottle of Goldschlager for it.

Good band, Augustines. Several years ago, they came in to play live for Soundcheck on WNYC when it was a radio show. They were fairly loud when I was setting their mix up. Just before the show went live at 2pm, I happened to glance up at our studio POV cam. It was shaking a bit and I thought, "Wow, they're playing louder than I thought." I then realized we were in the middle of an earthquake!

True fact: Asa Brebner, the second guitarist in this Modern Lovers lineup, played my parents' wedding :)

It was a bouncy up-beat death song though.

And it's familiar to millions from the version by the Dead!

"Flight of Icarus" from Iron Maiden, but that doesn't really fit, does it.

Great show as always

The Story Corner segment is inspired. The Patches medley followed up by Joe Tex's Ode to Billy Joe is genius. Thanks Joe!
