Download: “I Want You to Know” (mp3)

Perfect guitar tone. Two verses, cool, then they give you the big chorus–and a ear-blistering solo that the next cubicle will enjoy emanating from yr podlings. Get some ointment from HR. From the album with the year’s greatest cover, Farm, issued recently by the clearly fine folks at Jagjaguar. Acquisition info here.

About Jay Babcock

I am an independent writer and editor based in Tucson, Arizona. I publish a weeklyish email newsletter called LANDLINE via substack. Previously: I co-founded and edited Arthur Magazine (2002-2008, 2012-13) and curated the three Arthur music festival events (Arthurfest, ArthurBall, and Arthur Nights) (2005-6). Prior to that I was a district office staffer for Congressman Henry A. Waxman, a DJ at Silver Lake pirate radio station KBLT, a copy editor at Larry Flynt Publications, an editor at Mean magazine, and a freelance journalist contributing work to LAWeekly, Mojo, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Vibe, Rap Pages, Grand Royal and many other print and online outlets. An extended piece I wrote on Fela Kuti was selected for the Da Capo Best Music Writing 2000 anthology. In 2006, I was somehow listed in the Music section of Los Angeles Magazine's annual "Power" issue. In 2007-8, I produced a blog called "Nature Trumps," about the L.A. River. From 2010 to 2021, I lived in rural wilderness in Joshua Tree, Ca., where I studied with Buddhist teacher Ruth Denison and was involved in various pro-ecology and social justice activist activities. https://linktr.ee/jaywbabcock
