When I was compiling songs for my 1996 release IN THE NICHE OF NONSENSES I thought it would be fun to write a song around the clunky rhythm of a typewriter. We had one in our rehearsal space that I’d brought in and sat on top of band member Paul Knutsen’s bass amp. When it came time to record, Paul hauled the heavy thing into the studio and typed away. It was an old model with manual keys, so he had to punch it hard to make a sound. I’m glad he did it rather than me. I don’t think I could have kept it up for the length of the—tap, tap, ding—song.

    • The new year finds my quite well, thank you! I took a bit of time off to finish editing a little book I’m writing.
      I’m back at it now though. I hope you had a nice holiday. Onward and onward through 2016!
