This week: Wanna know what Coagula firestarter Mat Gleason and formalist Max Estenger thought about the Whitney? They’re happy to tell you. At least one painter Richard used to work with is likely to drop Mat from his Christmas card list. Mat doesn’t mind.
Things go far off the rails, drinks are spilled, accusations are made, someone’s mom’s toilet paper consumption is discussed, punk rock is sung badly and, I shit you not,Â we meet Marcel Duchamp’s illegitimate son on mic during the interview and he looks EXACTLY like dad. Even Mat with his lifetime of navigating LA culture and subculture admits “this is some serious weirdness”. Without question the most out-of-control interview we’ve ever done, and the most painstaking edit in 450 shows, it is a classic. You think this is unfocused and wacky, it started life clocking in over 2 hours. Bootlegs for sale in the lobby at the merch table.

This week: Katy Hamer, who in addition to her superior intellect and charm ALSO has stamina. So she demonstrates that stamina in our bed… and by bed we mean our bed booth at VOLTA in NYC this past weekend during which she tells us all about the art fairs.
What did you think we meant? What the hell is wrong with you, we don’t roll like that. Well, okay there was that time at a certain campingy art residency but I was drunk and I didn’t know it was a sheep. But Katy should have her good name sullied by associationw with us! She is a talented writer and critic, how dare you.
