  1. Everyone was talking at the reunion about where you were! You’ve been hiding in plain site it seems!!! Hope life is wonderful — would love to hear from you.

  2. Thought I’d say hello. Gladdens me to see you’re a dad. Imagine you’re a damn fine one.

    Any chance you have an opinion about Trans Am? Surrender to the Night delights me but The Surveillance is peaks & valleys. If there’s another solid album from ’em I’d appreciate you pointing the way. Somebody said they went dance so I’m kinda leery.

    Anyroad, take care. I’m thinking about the Catholics a lot these days.

    1. And hello back to you — I am delighted to be reminded of how often we thought of the Catholics. I hope you are well and happy.

      As for Trans Am, I have no opinion but now I have just now queued up Surrender to the Night and “Motr” is enticing for sure. I’m dancing a lot more these days so perhaps I’ll dig the later stuff more.

      1. Still crazy but no longer irrational, thanks. Been straightedge a couple years.

        Rough Justice & the titular track are the highlights, to me. R.J. doubtless because of Full On Night. Noise has always been a thing (cf. Earthbound, ‘Groon’; Merzdub, ‘Conqueror’). Not that I abjure dance or melody, merely that for all my love of ligne claire my aesthetic tends toward the crunchy.

        On that note, more or less, Money Mark had a brief interview seg on NPR’s Closer Look today. Studio hijinks, equipment hacks w/ the Beasties, etc. Short but you might like to listen.
