Shownotes

This "behind the song" episode is all about another SPITBALL classic, Lord Loves a Workin' Man. Marco talks with SPITBALL's rhythm section - Chris Orcutt (drums) and Mike Webb (bass) about the origins of this lurid, muscular instrumental and ask the big questions, like "is this a rockabilly song?" We also talk about the joys of playing at The Continental, and some of our most loyal (and fascinating) fans.

The big announcement is also revealed - the remaining members of Spitball will sell and distribute a CD and digital tracks from the LOHO sessions, after carefully mastering it. All proceeds will go to a charity in Molly's name. We'll keep you updated about the progress of this project in future episodes.

This episode includes a never-heard before recording from a CBGB's show as well as the LOHO version.
