Baby, it's you



In case you haven't seen it yet... there's a really entertaining piece on Eden & John's East River String Band in The Wall Street Journal:

Both musicians hail from Queens. They met 14 years ago when he was the manager at Forbidden Planet comic-book store on Broadway. Ms. Brower was a new hire.

"He would prank call me from the office and I fell for it every time," she said, noting that it wasn't always easy to tell the difference. "We'd get questions like, 'Who do you think is stronger: the Hulk or the Thing?' That'd be a real call at the store."


Read more about John's new release, "Baby, How Can It Be? Songs of Love, Lust and Contempt from the 1920s and 1930s," over at the home of Slum Goddess (um, Eden, if you didn't make the connection...)

Read the Journal article here.


PS
It's the Hulk, right?

Nice piece--but I don't think Eden is 38 years old.
