Honored to be asked to play at the 604 Paramore New Year's Eve party, I made the long journey to Topeka for a good night with good friends. I warned AC that I had not played in a long time, and had a time-stamped record collection. He was amused, and intrigued when I played Pink Floyd, followed directly with Tracy Chapman, and a bunch of other random down-tempo tracks.
Bucho picked up where I left off eventually, jokingly expressing my establishment of a new standard for the Living Room sets for the evening, creating an interesting but difficult musical trend to follow. Everyone seemed to dig it though. The other Sonic Engineers that night (Clandestine, Simply Chris, and AC) spun much more grand and fantastic vinyl tales, under black light and space art, using sometimes with computers and other gadgetry.
