Punk and New Wave icon Jerry Harrison of The Modern Lovers and The Talking Heads visits Anthony in Brooklyn to discuss the eponymous debut by prog-rock pioneers The Soft Machine (1968) which we paired with a bottle of equally unique wine, Raul Perez Ultreia St. Jacques 2016, made from Mencia grapes in the Bierzo region of Northwest Spain.
Jerry Harrison holds court on a fascinating variety of subjects, from his former roadie stealing Graham Parson's corpse to a nighttime visit from Charles Manson's thugs, to the architecture of prisons, the art of record production and why he likes it when keyboards sound as tough as guitars.
Kyle Meyer loves Raul Perez and Mencia. The Soft Machine, not so much.
