Jason welcomes musician & poet Bill Hickey for a ramble-yak about sharing an elevator with a pissed-off David Foster Wallace, carpet farming, fighting off ALL the members of KISS, & the sick, lip-smacked goodness of gritty early sh*t. They also reminisce about the glories of Goontown, Penguin Dust, & that one time Bill was Jason's roadie. Check out some of Bill's music at https://www.n1m.com/plasticsaint. Episode music by the edifying DJ Max in Tokyo; this episode contains the songs 'Fly On,' 'Never Ever,' & 'East Side Guitar Beat,' all of which you can (& should) buy at http://soundcloud.com/djmaxintokyo. Join the early sh*t chat at https://www.facebook.com/WRTESpodcast & on Instagram @writersreadtheirearlyshit. Many thanks, wherever & whoever you are, for listening.
