He HATES doing press, but we managed to get him on the horn and ask him, among other things, to confirm or deny that he does in fact sing the line “the smell of your box on my mustache” in the song “That’s What Our Love Is” from the recently-released The Wonder Show Of The World. (TMI alert!) He was just to the sort of thoughtful prickly pear everyone who has ever interviewed him says he is. Look for it Friday on a Phawker near you!
