The L'homme de Renaissance of indie rock. He's done lots of cover art for us, produced lots of records, lent his ham-fisted guitar stylings to recordings by the Old 97's, Kelly Hogan, Sally Timms, Alejandro Escovedo, among others, draws a comic strip, plays in the Mekons, and acts as a reeling papa bear figure to many of Chicago's musicians looking for direction and reassurance in this vicious racket we call the music industry. Among the guiding forces in the Pine Valley Cosmonauts and the Waco Brothers. As nice as he is prolific. Sort of rare in the hyper-rarified environment of notoriety.
