Mikey's Kitchen Interview

"A nice melt-sandwich can be had in 30 miles depending on the weather. This is all freeway, by the way, traveling in traffic changes everything and is harder since if you cook in hot weather and your commute is 30 minutes in traffic, you’ll end up burning your breakfast burrito."


Charlie and his publicist, Mike Farley, talk manifold cooking at Mikey's Kitchen blog

Now available at Charlie's website, 1922 is back again with an amazing cover by artist Wynn Davis.  Be sure to grab a copy before it sells out again.  There will be two release party shows coming up Aug. 14: The Electric Fetus at 7pm and the Turf Club later in the evening.

Also check out the first 1922 release party recorded back in 2003 by Jon Oelke at the Gingko Coffee House in St. Paul.  In terms of both sound quality and performance this is one of the highlights of the Charlie Parr collection on archive.org. 

And we've got more recordings from the 1922 sessions here.
