Guitarist Chris Forsyth stops by the WFMU studios in support of his new LP on Family Vineyard, "Paranoid Cat." The album criss-crosses American roots, psychedelia, and avant blues, and hints at a discerning guitar lineage consisting of John Fahey, Jack Rose, Tetuzi Akiyama, Richard Lloyd/Television among others. For "Paranoid Cat," Chris assembled a killer band featuring drummer Mike Pride, bassist Peter Kerlin, pianist Hans Chew (D. Charles Speer & Helix), pedal steel player Marc Orleans (Sunburned, D. Charles Speer), synth player Koen Holtkamp (Mountains), trumpeter Nate Wooley and others. For this WFMU live session, it'll be a modified version of the band including Mike Pride (drums), Peter Kerlin (bass), Don Bruno (organ), and Hans Chew (piano).

took quite a while to really let go and let the music takeover, but once it did, I found I quite enjoyed this set. Long Warm Afternoon, ah... it's way too warm over here in Sri Lanka.
