Joe Meno Interview

I just stumbled across this fine 2004 interview with Joe Meno (Hairstyles of the Damned), from WBEZ's "848" program hosted by Steve Edwards.

I really believe in that really simple sentiment, that music does save your life. Maybe it’s not as dramatic as I’m making it sound, but maybe it saves your day.

I really enjoyed the writing class I took at Northwestern last summer with Meno, and this interview really brings across the humility, enthusiasm and easygoing nature that he projects in person. (Yes, I'm aware of the fact that I've mentioned Hairstyles repeatedly here, without having read it yet. I intend to rectify this by the end of the year.)
