Repercussion: I get the feeling Peter has been friends with Chris Stamey and Peter Holsapple for some time, but I don't know how they met, etc. Chris produced Peter B's wonderful King Strut & Other Stories album, on which Peter H did his multi-instrumentalist thing on several of its tracks (well worth seeking out, even though it’s out of print). Chris was a co-conspirator with Peter B in the Golden Palominos. Today, he and Peter H are active members of Radio Free Song Club (which you really should know about...) And one of the very coolest things I’ve ever posted is THIS live concert featuring Peter B’s music, with guest turns by Peter H and Syd Straw.
