While working at Turtle's Records in the early '90s, one of my best friends was Kirk. We went to countless concerts and shows together, usually for free thanks to the good label reps who were so generous with putting guys like us on door lists. There were road trips to Atlanta and endless Nashville nights hitting venues such as Exit/In, Grapevine Cafe, 328 Performance Hall, Ace of Clubs, 12th and Porter, etc. We'd also drink all night at Rio Bravo talking about bands and albums and shows and songs and radio stations and record stores.
Thanks to Kirk, I know about The Waterboys, World Party, Luka Bloom, and Billy Bragg. He liked a lot of stuff, but it was very important to him that everyone know how great The Waterboys were. He was right. I was hooked from probably the first song I heard. Anyway, here they are singing "The Whole of the Moon." It's pretty awesome.
