Show Notes

It was Alex's birthday, so René invited long time drummer Doug Garrison and fellow bandleader "Johnny" Jay Beninati for a special episode. They took a free associative journey through the memory labyrinth of Alex's time in New Orleans, on the road, and beyond. Topics include his arrival in town, Stanley and the Undesirables, the Panther Burns reconstituted, personal resolve, unearthing discarded artifacts, pearls of wisdom, the Clash tour, the 688 Club, the fractured aesthetic, the Asplundh tree crew, hanging at the carriage house, the Scores at Papa Joe's, meeting Manson, the trio taking N.Y.C., finding Doug at the Eggleston opening, Feudalist Tarts and serf music, touring and the kindness of strangers, the '73 Buick LeSabre, the Road Gang, transcendental greatness, dark humor, astrology, a final encounter, the RoundUp jukebox, a European tour heist, recording, and much more.
