    A career spanning interview that covers Silkworm’s many years of (not so) glamorous touring, doing your best work in “low gear”, replacing a band member with space, being in a band with three singers that don’t sing together, not envying people who make music for a living, continuing on with music after tragedy, being covered by the Mountain Goats being a big deal to a small amount of people, bass vs. baritone guitar
    and being “the beef rub guy”. All that and a rock block of Silkworm and Bottomless Pit you wouldn’t believe.
