We try to make these landmark numbered episodes of the podcast something special, and we think we’ve come through on that account. This week, we’re happy to be joined by bass player, Wax Trax legend, and all around thoughtful guy Paul Barker as the release of The Eternal Present, the new Lead Into Gold album, draws close. Paul spoke with us about the particular mood and sound of the new record, how his approaches to LIG and other projects have shifted over the years, and plenty of other topics both musical and philosophical. We’re also talking a bit off the top about the recent Ticketmaster vs. The Cure business, and catching The Residents live.
