One of those songs is The Get Up Kids' cover of Alec Eiffel. It instantly brings me back to the countless lake-effect blizzards and silly smallliberalartsschool romances that was my time in Kalamazoo (1997-1999).
So I recently found out about this reputable studio over in Eudora (about fifteen minutes east of Lawrence). They started doing some 4-person recording workshops in May. So I emailed the studio manager-type about attending one in January.
Well, I researched it and found that TGUK and their producer-type bought this studio in 2002. And the studio manager-type I emailed was TGUK's bassist. I knew TGUK was from Lawrence/Kansas City, but yeah, it's still feels awfully weird to email someone I respect without actually realizing who they are.
Also, the guy that's fixing my tape echo is the guitarist of this band whose lead singer I interviewed last year. And I even saw them open a show. Maybe the show I met alabama_grrrl at.
Anyway, today I learned that I need to start googling people sooner, not later.
