Wow, linked to by William “father of cyberpunk” Gibson:

People sometimes ask what I was listening to during the writing of a given book. For Spook Country, I’ve usually cited the complete ouvre of Drive By Truckers (whom I happened to discover for the first time just as the book was really getting started), and, toward the end, Neko Case’s Fox Confessor Brings The Flood. But I’ve been forgetting Brad Sucks, who I discovered when I was somewhere in the middle. Anesthetic’s remix of “Dirtbag”, in fact, came to have much to do with the tonality of my character Milgrim. I’d drive around and listen to that if I felt I was losing the peculiarly floaty grip that Milgrim required.

I don’t know if I will ever feel any nerd-cooler than this moment.

The Anesthetic remix of Dirtbag is here by the way and it’s by my fellow Magnatune artist c.Layne.

Jebus! He actually used one of your songs as a character touchpoint; how cool is that?

Wow. That is most damn cool! That’s one of my favorites of your songs too, and that remix is spectacular.

Wow, now that’s awesome. That would be quite a dram, to know that a writer that influenced you had been influenced right back, how cool.

Why did I say dram? I meant dream.

Call the RIAA the FBI and stop all this mess, you’re freeing art from lawyers, that’s insane, sue Gibson for The Industry’s sake.

We’ll never forget.

This said, can’t wait for the next album.
