This is not a sad song. It’s a celebration of all the greatness they left behind. So we honor that.
Thank you for listening. We hope they are too.

#TBT April ’97. Prom (Pic 1). A few of the original crew. Longtime fans will recognize @AriGold_Stein who started “Ordinary Peoples” with @jerrydepizzo before he was in OAR, but way before then Ari was helping us out almost like our first manager and even financed the production of The Wanderer so we could release it on CD. Back in high school we’d send our tapes to record labels, radio stations and any other music business contacts we could think of and Ari would decorate the packages to make sure they’d get ‘noticed’ 🤙. I vividly remember hanging out on his back deck while he hand-painted this backdrop for us (Pic 2), his cousin Brian Dubin was having a house party at Univ of MD that weekend and asked us to play. I’m pretty sure that was the first time we ever played in College Park. A few weeks before this #FoxtrotZulu invited us to open up for them at Terrapin Station but when we got there the venue wouldn’t let us play because we were underage! 😂. And we definitely played a bunch of Knox Blocks party’s, but I think that was later on? Was anyone there? Let me know if you remember. And one of my other favorite memories of this show was that Marc and I had gone to see @officialBurningSpear at The Bayou in Georgetown a few nights before this (it was a legendary music venue that’s been closed for years) and afterwards we were passing out tapes to people in the crowd and met a local reggae singer named Hutchy (Pic 3.) We invited him to come out and jam with us at the party that weekend. He was awesome and he had so much fun he sat in with us at 2 or 3 more shows that Spring and Summer.

“Walk slow, not too slow, little faster, what do I do with this arm, damn it’s sunny, is that the right lyric, pretty hungry, don’t look at camera, Black Mirror is so good, walking too fast, this arm is crazy..”

We couldn’t think of a more deserving person, who walks the walk, and still makes time every day for joy. Congratulations on your nomination, José.
