Where There's a Will Johnson, There's a Song for Obama Worth Listening To
In September 1995, Johnson, then the drummer in Funland, came up to the Observer to give me a cassette filled with scattershooting bedroom demos, one of which ("Misunderstanding Surplus in the Getaway Car") made the second Dallas Observer Scene, Heard compilation. I'm looking at the tape now -- its label handwritten on the back of a cut-out Rick's Place flier, Side A of the Maxell tape marked as "Centrum. Addict." Seems like a million years ago. That voice now, good God.
