Boom chicka boom.

Our title is a 1990 Mercury album by Johnny Cash or a description of the sound his band, The Tennessee Three made. Take your pick.

My interview with Marshall Grant from last year's debut Pardon Johnny Cash Festival is finally up at Perfect Sound Forever.

They printed an abbreviated version of My Best of 2007 list.

Here's some categories that got left off:
