Thanks to Lee for his donation to support our podcast. I encourage you all to look here and read about his struggle with ALS, his candidacy for president (here’s his platform), and his musical career. I know he’d love to hear any nice things you have to say about his music, so don’t be shy in contacting him through his site or commenting here.
Lee used to play bass with my band The Fake Johnson Trio back in Austin from the summer of ’95 through the summer of ’96, and we’ve been in periodic e-contact since then. As I haven’t gotten a chance to collaborate with him since he started writing music in the wake of his illness (he’s got very limited mobility at this point and can’t speak), I took this opportunity to throw together a quick ““Shalom”/”Nipple Song” 2011 Mashup” using some goofy tunes I recorded back in 1991 (part of a collection of “Spoo” songs that will likely be explained in some future post).
