This is such an amazing place. Somehow, I knew that someone would know about the D'Autremont song and now there's a possibility someone knows the writer!
Yesterday, I was looking at the Waterbug site to see what an old friend, Rick Lee, had been up to. They have audio clips from some of the CDs they publish at Waterbug. There were clips from Rick's albums but I noticd that there were also clips from some guy named Art Thieme whose albums they puiblish, too and I had the chance to listen to two the voice behind the posts. That was a pleasant surprise (the opportunity, not the quality of the performance).
It seems as though Mudcatters are spread around pretty generally.
I'm glad I found you all.
