Wesley Stace’s Cabinet of Wonders: The Podcast

http://www.salon.com/2015/05/28/cabinet_of_wonders_april_2/

If variety is the spice of life, April’s Cabinet of Wonders, the first Salon.com podcast, is the spiciest yet.

In which the show must and does go on! Imagine, if you will, a world where Southside Johnny, the godfather of the New Jersey Sound, shares a bill with Andrew VanWyngarden, lead singer of MGMT: only in the Cabinet! Andrew sings the MGMT classic “I Love You Too, Death” along with covers of beautiful psych by Les Baroques and the Brazda Brothers, while Southside sings us “Hearts of Stone”, written of course by Bruce Springsteen. The meat in the Southside/MGMT sandwich was another great New Jersey poet, your ex-Poet Laureate, Robert Pinsky, with The English UK backing him on “Antique”. The assembled company then join for a celebratory, valedictory rendition of Kevin Ayer’s “Religious Experience.” (WARNING: contains excellent harmonica playing.)

For the longest time, I was worried that we'll never get a full recording of the ILYTD performance... and not only did we get one, it's an excellent quality one!
