Thank you, Yale Herald

Rachel Khong presents an idiosyncratic interview with the Egg at the Yale Herald, where Will was managing editor in fall 1993. Rachel loves eggs. And the Egg. But especially eggs.

Thank you, Owen Gillham and music-news.com

Today music-news.com ran Owen Gillham’s incredible five-star review of Open Book. Yes! This man is a record-reviewing machine: I can’t believe he listened to the entire thing. But it seems he did. And he still liked it. I think I definitely owe him several pints.

Thank you, Chromewaves

Frank at Chromewaves, one of my favorite music blogs (its name comes from a song by my beloved Ride), reviewed Open Book today.

I went with a random sampling approach and was really surprised how consistent and good everything I heard was – some tracks are short instrumental pieces and nothing is really epic length, but there were no throwaways or blatant filler. The Egg is absurdly prolific but not at the expense of quality control…Will Georgantas, he who essentially is Thunderegg, has true melodic gift and a wry, humourous (but not jokey) lyrical touch. I don’t know how long it’ll take me, but I intend of someday getting through everything here on the CD. We should all leave a legacy on this world so impressive.

And I’m telling you, this guy knows what he’s talking about! Pick up your copy today!

Thank you, Stereogum

Music-blog heavyweight Stereogum featured 1996’s “(I Was an) Intern at Spin” today, a tune that simultaneously lambastes both the old music-magazine business and your eardrums. As the auteur, I stand by my assertion that I love all my songchildren, although let’s be honest, no parent is absolutely without bias, and “Intern at Spin”—really the entire New England Music album—is something of what my mother might euphemistically call “a pill.” By which she would’ve meant that it might be about the 200th best song on the 231-song Open Book compilation. But ah, well. We still feed them in the morning and wrap them up in their little coats and watch them trundle off to school. The world needs ditch diggers, too. More than it needs interns, even.
