    Another interview conducted with the books for my now-defunct college radio show:



    These guys were nice enough to do this interview in their van after playing a show in a little club in Denver, and moving all their own equipment. They were super, super nice & I thought this might be nice to add to this post if people were interested.

    Just to clarify, the video of the mormons are not of the founding members. They are of Lorenzo Snow and others, around the turn of the century. Mormonism was founded more than 50 years before these individuals rose to power in the corporation known as Mormonism.

    Nice article, Bassam. Both Nick and Paul are wonderful, friendly, weird, gentle people with great ideas about life and music. Two other great interviews with Nick are available through archive.org: http://web.archive.org/web/20050324233551/http://www.musicforamerica.org/music/artist/2437 and http://web.archive.org/web/20060820001327/http://www.lastvisibledog.org/arts/2006/03/books.html
