Bands, musicians and radio.
WFMU is an independent freeform radio station broadcasting at 91.1 fm in the New York City area that I listen to as much as possible. Their shows stream on the web too, so you can listen anywhere on earth.
This cool record label has just published two great compilation albums called "Songs From Inside the Radio". Wacky kids music and I did the album cover art, and volume 2 contains "Super Hero Me" by Let's Audio!
The Flaming Lips - My favorite
rock band. They started out in the eighties as a noisy guitar band,
then they had a crazy novelty hit in the 90 called "She Don't Use
Jelly". Now they have matured into something brilliant, sensitive,
profound, explosive, sad, happy, funny.

Shonen Knife - I was such a huge
fan of this band that I wrote to them and asked if I could ever do one
of their album covers. Lucky for me they had seen my work in Japan and
were fans of mine. I did the artwork for their 2000 CD "Strawberry
Sound". They rock on, and get smarter, sweeter and more adventurous
on each new release.
They Might Be Giants
- I met John and John in 1985, when they asked me to do the artwork
for their first album. It was one of my first illustration jobs ever.
I have always felt a connection between their music and my artwork.
Still funny, quirky, personal, original rock.
When I first heard this band in the 1980's I knew there was hope for us suburban mutants.
Music and record label by Japanese electronic musician Nobukazu Takemura. Hard to describe, tentative hypnotic, broken, funny, fragmented, small, and include a group of innovative collaborators who make similar but oddly different music.
