Live performance by Meaner Pencil
When she arrived in New York City, the city subway presented itself as the perfect performance cathedral. Her cello is the main tool she uses to lift musical spirits, although the overall tone of her tunes is quite sombre. Meaner Pencil's latest album, "Senza Amanti" is Italian for "Without Lovers". She writes, "These are pieces meant to be performed without lovers, and they describe a period of my life when I was trying to live alone, after severe heartbreak, in the hope of gaining a better understanding of myself." Meaner Pencil played live on Irene's show.

good afternoon friends!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Irene Trudel:

Hello, one and all! Just setting up for Meaner Pencil, whose set is going to be gorgeous. @KP, not sure who's in Humble Tripe. I'll certainly find out later.
  12:52pm don d:

kp's was a joke- Shirley was humble pie drummer

Irene your guest sounds great. And my question was a joke in regard to that other band, Humble Pie.

Oh, @KP, I'm a little slow sometimes.

I'm listening in Omaha, Nebraska. 40 minutes from where Meaner Pencil is from, Lincoln, NE. She sounds beautiful. GO BIG RED!
  1:42pm nolan:

perhaps the only thing more beautiful than lenna's voice is her laugh. you are amazing!
  2:01pm Joanna Bryson:

Sorry, was trying to contact you from twitter. I was getting nowhere googling either, but from that last I got Wilgefortis.
  2:02pm sonya:

Hi Irene, here's a link to the statue of Saint Wilgefortis in Prague. Wonderful set by Meaner Pencil!
Avatar 2:12pm slugluv1313:

good afternoon, Irene and listeners!
thoroughly enjoying the music of Meaner Pencil!
SO TRUE! art can take you to a dark place . . . then bring you back :)
(having a really crappy/depressing day, so was already in that "dark place" -- but thanks to you and WFMU, feeling SO much BETTER now! ahhhhh the HEALING POWERS of MUSIC!!!)
and i LOVE the story of St. Wilgefortis! St. Dymphna is a favorite of mine, and being Hungarian, i adore St, Elizabeth of Hungary -- so i am surprised i have never heard of St. Wilgefortis before!
here is more about here from (of course, ha ha!) a Roman Catholic website:

Avatar 2:20pm slugluv1313:

interesting! some say that St. Wilgefortis is a fake!?! :(
in any case, FASCINATING story! her day is coming up, July 20th :)

Very nice...thank you for the great music, Meaner and Irene, from Memphis

Well, this brings back some memories. I once bumped into Robyn Hitchcock in a coffee shop on Haight Street.

Thanks for tuning in everybody. Catch you next week, with a live performance by Beth Sorrentino.

Great show Irene...Great finish with this
Avatar 10:41am Van in DC:

I have had SVE's Are We There on endless repeat for days. The track you played, I Love You But I'm Lost, just wow. Such a perfect song.

Here is a live performance on WSJ of it


I was lucky to see Sharon here in DC a week ago. Just fantastic. I was wearing an FMU t-shirt and made sure to talk to her after the show. She was like, "Aww! FMU!!" :)
