  1. Nice meeting you last saturday! I really enjoyed your music too! Hope we can play a show sometime!

    The most knowledgeable musician/writer I’ve met. Keep up the great work. I appreciate the article on Jerry Wexler.

  3. Please get in touch. I miss people from my past. Kinda funny since I don’t deal with the past very well. But you,mike & mike were some of the best times I ever had. So……get in touch.

  4. Trying hard not to make this read like spam… Just wanted to let you know about a new album by a Vancouver band called Way to Go, Einstein (brought to you by Submerged Records, who also brought you Hinterland and Windows ’78). It’s called Pseudonym, and I’ll gladly send you some more info on it if you’re interested.

  5. just found your blog. what a gold mine of great stuff. can’t wait to visit again.

  6. Paul, I really like your blog and I really like all the artists that you write about. It is in that spirit that I send you this video. I just think you might like it. It’s a song I recorded at Abbey Road last year with Ken Stringfellow (Posies/REM/Big Star) on guest vocals and noted Liverpudlians Martin Carr and Rob Cieka of the Boo Radleys. It’s just out now on blue vinyl, so if you want a copy or an MP3, just em me. Rave on, brother!

    Hi Paul – This is “nacky” from Twitter… Truly sorry, it was just a silly thing to write on my part. I think you are talented and great. Best always.
