"...falling asleep halfway through side one of Meddle."

There's a wonderful piece by Sub Pop Records President Jonathan Poneman in the June 2nd Sunday Review edition of the New York Times. It recalls earlier & easier days of working at a gas station in Toledo, Ohio, and gives a glimpse of the ambitious stirrings of a person who had a big part in changing the face of music as we know it.

It's short, sweet and you can read it right here.

I really enjoyed that. Funny how this bit also applies to Sub Pop, "That was my introduction to a truth that rests at the bedrock of American capitalism: hype something quite ordinary with enough fervor, and eventually its excellence will be beyond dispute."
