Editor's Note: Rock snob, New York City writer, Al Whirly, has been a ghost DJ in the Editor's head for decades. From the Young Fresh Fellows, to the first strummings of Marah, and the delightful screech of Dinosaur Junior, many tracks have been heard exclusively because he has put these tunes to the Editor's ear. Folker and Grandpa Boy would still be obscure to many fans and readers had he not shined a light on Mono. Move forward, he says, have you listened to this? Langhorne Slim has been featured on our site several times, simply because of the tireless compilation tracks that Whirly has collected and transmitted, to keep the Editor from trailing off into music from the past, yet again. And Jason Anderson is accredited to Whirly's perseverance to perpetuate indie greatness. Year after year, we've been trying to get him to write a review. Alas! Out of the blue, he casts his elitism aside, and sends in a nod to who else, but 80's Pop icon, Cyndi Lauper from the Beacon Theatre.
What say you, Mr. Whirly?
