Hey Trey, cool firm! I was nosing around, checking out who I might wanna work for when I thought I was hungry for a degree in architecture. Dig your label, too! Been giving both those Black Lips and Crucials singles a workout!
I'm in Athens, GA... Grew up in Atlanta, but went to college in Wisconsin where I feel in love with records and freeform college radio. Back to Atlanta where I worked at Wax n Facts when it was the only record shop in Little Five Points. Fell in love with a hardcore record guy (like the symmetry?) and moved to Athens... My husband usta play drums in the Woggles back when they'd do a lot of dates with the Oblivians. After he left the band, we started traveling to the Austin and WFMU record shows twice yearly. We met so many more great people on those trips! I started getting into the message board thing when we cut down on that kind of traveling and I missed the social whirl.
Can't quite remember how I found the Goner board, probably googling the Reigning Sound. Mostly I lurk, but I've been posting a tad more. Mainly I shoot my mouth off on GP.com! They also host my podcast, Hanging On For Mercy
Sometimes, I write music bits here and there on a freelance basis, wish my hometown had less of a hohum happy music scene, not enough danger in the music, which is what I like about the Goner scene. However, there are some acts here I'd go to the ropes for any day... Don Chambers, for one. Right now, I am recovering from a long time bout with chronic fatigue, but I am reopening my ceramics studio where I make sculpture and try to support my habit by making functional pottery inspired by mid-20th century design. my design credo, less is more but damn I love jolly, bright colors and the contrast between a mechanized form and organic textures. ....and of course, need lotsa cool tunes to fuel my work!
