"I feel like I'm always trying to shed light on dark corners of music."
"Any music that used slurred notes and in-just intonation has a certain kind of bluesy quality to it and that's the music I relate most to. When I hear the sound of the human struggling through their instrument--that's the blues."
--guitarist Gary Lucas on The Mike & Judy Show
