"This Pittsburgh collective has been inspired from the dark and sometimes quirky films of David Lynch to not only re-create the timeless soundtracks of his films, but to also compose original music based on the direct influence of Angelo Badalamenti's noir-jazz vignettes."

 The group is having it's CD release gig tomorrow night at Club Cafe. My thanks to guitarist Kirk Salopek for participating in this edition of First/Last.

The first album you ever bought?
Depeche Mode, “People Are People”.

Your last album bought?
The War On Drugs, “Slave Ambient”.

Favorite album of all time?
I do not have a favorite album.

Least favorite/most disappointing album?
Pink Floyd, “The Final Cut”.

First concert attended?
Social Distortion at The Electric Banana in 1988? I think?

Last concert?
The Twilight Singers.

Favorite concert ever?
The Damned or Camper Van Beethoven, I can’t decide.

Least favorite concert?
Stone Temple Pilots.

Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
Eating a burger at Tessaro’s…Mmmm.

Thanks, Kirk. The project sounds extremely interesting. By the way, my favorite concert ever was also Camper Van Beethoven. Metropol '89 perhaps?
