What was the first concert you attended? 

My mother dragged me to too many country-pop concerts, mostly in casino showrooms, when I was young, which I really hated. My first actual personally chosen concert was Joan Jett at the old UNR gymnasium when I was 11. 

What was the first album you owned? 

My parents had a lot of records, so those were basically my first albums, which I still have. I also bought and kept many disco (and soft-rock) singles when I was into dancing on Dad’s pool table. “Heart of Glass”! My dad’s Supremes blue double LP was definitely my favorite. Equally, so was my mom’s Zombies 45s. I also still have a large quantity of my old K-tel hit compilations. 

What bands are you listening to right now? 

Mount Kimbie, Warpaint, The Aislers Set, Virginia Wing, Moving Units, LCD, and Satisfact, but I play myself about 10 records a day in my music room! 

What artist, genre or musical trend does everyone love, but you don’t get? 

New country pop. 

What musical act, current or defunct, would you most like to see perform live? 

Bands from the late ’70s in Manchester. 

What’s your favorite musical guilty pleasure? 

I have walls full of great records to enjoy without including anything I think is lame.  

What’s your favorite music venue? 

The Great American Music Hall. 

What’s the one song lyric you can’t get out of your head? 

Usually one of the classic traditional children’s songs, because I do story times at the library. “The ABC Song,” “Head and Shoulders,” “Old Macdonald,” etc. 

What band or artist changed your life? How? 

Lydia Lunch. As a teenager, she introduced me to no wave music and cinema. (Watch the documentary Blank City!)  

You have one question to ask one musician. What’s the question, and who are you asking? 

I already asked Cosey Fanni Tutti a question in 1989, and that question is a secret. 😉 

What song would you like played at your funeral? 

That’s a really long list. Today, I’ll say “Lowdown” by Boz Scaggs.

The Pink Opaque by Cocteau Twins.
