Thom Lessner and I used to trade tapes and this is one that I from him pretty early on. If you’re not familiar with Thom, go to Dirty Franks right now…he did all the artwork inside the restaurant. Thom and I were never super close pals, but I like to think we had a kinship of sorts. I’ve always loved his songs because he writes in a literal, almost scripted dialog that relates to those who surround him, and he’s not afraid of humor and/or embarrassing topics. There’s lots of Columbus all-star guests on this as well like R.J. Krohn (RJD2) and Trevor Williams from Beano. Thom seems to be more focused on art these days but he’s so awesome at that too. When I listen to this tape, I miss the old days of the Crud House and all those folks. Also check out thomlessner.com to see what he’s up to lately.
