My song, “Alligator” will be featured on CNN April 12
This coming Sunday at 10 pm EDT on The Wonder List. The show’s about places and cultures in danger of being corrupted by “civilization”. The Florida Everglades is one of the episodes, and producer Mary Wharton thought the song was a perfect fit. Imagine that. This recording came together in the Kingsnake Studio in 1989 with me playing drums and acoustic guitar simultaneously, Lucky Peterson on bass, and Pat Ramsey on harmonica.

THE most authentic Korean restaurant in Florida.
Many words were spoken. Few were in English.
This little down home, hole in the wall is situated next to a Korean market in a tiny strip mall right in the middle of Central Florida. When I ordered the fermented soy bean soup, the kind lady squenched up a look of consternation and a touch of fear passed over her face. “That dish has a very… … … strong flavor.” She obviously did not know who she was talkin to. However little did I know who I was talkin to. I was about to experience the funkiest and most flavorful of meals I ever had. Funkier than the best/worst cheese in France. Funkier that the “wrinkle stinks” (Chitterlings). When you smell something like this, you have got to wonder. Well you know…
The flavor was incredible. “Bold” does not even begin to describe. “very… … … strong”? Forget it. This is world class funk. But the fermented soy bean dish is sooo good. And like the super over ripe cheeses, it leaves a feeling of well being. The living organisms sending happy thoughts and feelings to your brain. A serotonin rush of AHHHHHHHH YYYYEEEEAAAH! eases down your spine to the tips of your toes. This is intelligent cooking. This is cookin that heals! These folks KNOW what their doing. And they do it with grace and beauty. Not everything on the menu is so funky. The BBQ is outrageous.They bring a pitcher of cold barley tea. No need to ask for refills. I like the way they serve the banchon side dishes with the meal rather than before. The radish with cucumber kim chee is sublime. Not too sweet. Just right to make you ask for a little more. All in all, This is the next best thing to being there.
