Episode #87: New Wave Pink

Yesterdays Forever“Are you trying to bribe me?”

“Trust me, our single’s gonna be a smash.”

“This other stuff sounds good, but you wanna get money out of me before I even hear the single?”

This was no transcript from Behind the Music, nor was it a scene from Spinal Tap.  It actually happened last Sunday when I had recording industry mogul, Andy Ingram, in my basement, listening to my band’s recordings (about 75% tracked).  Convinced I had backed him into the corner and held the upper hand in negotiations, I replied….well, I can’t remember what I replied.


Everything in that story is true.  But keep in mind that Andy runs an indie pop/rock label in Dayton, Ohio.  (He could probably find better ways to make money.)  He and I ran in very similar circles until we finally met a years ago through either my friend, Joel Atkinson, or my wife, I can’t remember.  Anyway, Andy visited Kansas City last weekend and was simply sitting in a chair in the corner of my basement recording room when we held the above conversation.

How does that relate to this show?  Well, Andy has a sweet band, XL427.  Enjoy.
