Hey Everyone! I wanted to make sure y'all know about the Interview that Peter Agoston/Culturama from IG and our Forum just released. He does a Podcast called The House List and he interviewed Thes One for his 50th show. Peter knows Mike and Chris personally and has a intimate connection with PUTS and the underground "scene" in general I'd say. Here is the quote from his post on IG:
Culturama » Today I posted our 50th episode of The House List, the first time I ever went to Los Angeles back in the 90s, I crashed on this guys couch. Actually, I slept in my car the first night, then his couch. Since then I've had court-side seats for him and his partner Mike's journey on every album they've released - Chris Portugal, Thes One of People Under The Stairs. It's a fantastic conversation....Now, I gab about this in the show's intro but when I got sick in 2014, I spent a lot of time in a hospital bed unable to move, see or do much of anything. So eventually I started listening to podcasts so other people's conversations/lives could help me pass the time and distract my mind. This carried on thru the countless lonely hours in dialysis (Shout out to Steve at Irving Place) and later when I was able to walk again. When I decided to try and produce my own - it was a way to see old friends I might not otherwise and people I think are cool. The social life of a booking agent can disappear very suddenly once you aren't of use to a client / manager anymore, so My social circle was only my very closest loved ones, and this damn podcast helped me get re-engaged with people. The self-promotion part is def not my favorite thing, there are more important things going on. But 50 episodes on a no-string-budget is tits IMHO. Shout out to all yall on this thing.
I haven't listened to it yet and I can't wait as the interview is 2 hr 4 min! I'll hold off on my comments as to not spoil the content...
