    The Paste review cracked me up. I’m admittedly a Thompson fanatic, but the reviewer totally missed it, complaining of cliches like the phrase “As I went a’ walkin’”. That’s not cliche, laddie, that’s tradition. Made me want to consign him to a lifetime of bad “Danny Boy” covers in the fake Irish pubs that have sprung up all over America.

    Did you know Alec Guinness’s Fagin make-up was designed by Stuart Freeborn, the man who went on to create Yoda and Jabba the Hutt? :)

    Though nothing beats just hearing him and his guitar perform live. I got to see him here in NJ for Kit Bag. Beeswing brought tears to my eyes to hear it live. He also performed Oops I did It Again and made the song sound good. A true master.

    Interesting about RT. I am a loyal and devoted follower. I like The Old Kit Bag, but I think I’ve decided that Mock Tudor is my favorite of the last decade. I didn’t love it when it came out, then rediscovered it a couple of years late and became obsessed.
