Some readers might remember a fraught little entry I posted here about year ago about John Lurie, wherein after strangely experiencing some recurrng invocations of the man's work, I tried to glean more about his current doings, only to inadvertantly offend the man himself online (he reached out in the comments section) after carelessly passing on a bit of hearsay and resurecting a certain infamous New Yorker article that continues to plague him.
Fret not, it all ended well. As you can read in the lengthy comments thread, I recanted and edited my original piece and apologized profusely. Lurie was entirely gracious about it -- and even mailed me a compact disc of Voice of Chunk, which probably ended up being the album I listened to the most in 2013.
In any case, a regular reader (I think) named Jeff Taylor recently conducted an interview with Lurie and forwarded that on to me. It's great! Check it out here. The most encouraging bit of news for me was that Lurie is apparently "90%' finished with a memoir. That's bound to make for some exceptional reading.
Meanwhile, here are my two favorite tracks from Voice of Chunk. Amazing stuff, this.
