Garth on Robert Crumb

I think Garth's given up on us here, so I'll take the liberty of posting a link to this old interview that he did with Robert Crumb:

I seem to recall reading this a while back but, according to Garth via Facebook, it's only recently seen the light of day on the interweb.

Sadly, I suspect it's my fault that Garth has deserted us. I called him on his class-ist comments and left him no room to manoeuver. I regret that now. It was disproportionate but I could not let it go. Ironically, we are still in regular contact (even this evening) and there are no hard feelings at all (at least, as far as I can tell!)

Don't beat yourself up about it Adam. For what it's worth, I don't think it was anything anybody said - lord knows, Garth can look after himself when it comes to an argument. People move on, it is what it is.

There was an amazing and extensive exhibition of Monsieur Crumb's life and work in Paris last year; art work, writing, music, biography, photos, the lot. It was curated excellently, never boring, and fun to boot. Much like his work. They really seemed to value his living in France, however 'quietly'. Garth's interview brought it all back, thanks Rob.

Ta for posting Rob. I haven't completely given up on forum just too damn busy ie travelling or desperately freelancing to make up funds to give it much attention - was asked to promote the Tcha Limberger dates which is what bought me back tonight. Good to see y'all still active. I tend to think I'm friends with pretty much everyone here on FB so if post there u will see it but I should drop in here more often - if just out of respect for Charlie. And, no, Adam, you didn't chase me off - i just don't see the point of wasting time arguing on dead rock icons if your adversary approaches debate the way the Taliban approach religion. Not fun. And, yes, i'm still a class warrior and hold that Cameron, if a few years older, would be a Beefhart fan.

No, I think that Cameroon would reckon that the pinnacle of rock would be "Badge" by Cream.

That's not what we were doing.

You had posited the outrageous (to a professional musician and music teacher) notion that my taste in music was dictated by (what you perceived and pronounced to be) my class.

But, hey, good to have you back and all (if only briefly)...
