Live at WFMU on Brian Turner's Show on 7/26/2005

Album Description

CURATOR:
Released:2005-07-26
GENRE:
Gary's 1973 opus Red Hash has remained a enduring document of stark, sad acoustic beauty. It's a deeply personal and eccentric record created by someone on the edge of an abyss; in reality Higgins was on the verge of a 3-year sentencing to jail for a marijuana bust. Red Hash,
while not distributed properly upon its release, has kept popping up on WFMU playlists over the years (and was also recently documented on the station's blog in detail) and tomorrow (July 27th) Drag City lovingly reissues this elusive album. To celebrate, Gary has resurfaced and joins Brian today with the addition of some Red Hash-era band members in tow. They are: Dave Beaujon: Bass, Graham Higgins: Guitar, Maureen Wells: Cello, Terry Fenton: Keyboard (not in session, just interview) and of course Gary on Vocal/Guitar. Songs: Stable of Spuds, Thicker Than a Smokey. More info at www.dragcity.com. Thank you to Gary & co. Ben, and especially Zach Cowie for his infinite, continual good deeds to me.
