Shownotes

This "behind the song" episode is all about SPITBALL's cover of Bill Wither's Use Me (often called Use Me Up by mistake). Marco talks with SPITBALL's "engine room" - Chris Orcutt (drums) and Mike Webb (bass) about what makes a great rhythm section and what makes a bad one. We ramble about the pains of aggressive self-promotion, and about that other Fab Four that Peter Jackson made a documentary about.

This episode includes a never-heard before recording from a CBGB's show.
