Looking forward to listening to this one! The chat room and the live recording session were once again hilarious (and, fortunately, with good and stable audio).

Great podcast, once again! Loved the track at the end, really cool sounds and well chosen sound bytes.

A lot of the players in the jazz bands that fly through the Slippery Noodle Inn have a tendency to tick or grunt or do some sort of facial articulation while playing ....The ones I've asked said it was there internal metronome .

The king of mouthing guitar parts, especially with wow pedals, has to be Robin Trower. I never tire of listening to the album Bridge of Sighs which also features the late great James Dewer on vocals and bass.

an even wilder vid than the one on the link, simply to demonstrate this guy is very rich and also quite possibly very nuts..respect.
