This is all he does, and he does it well-- P.O.S. on Making Music.
For nine years running, The Whole Music Club (long-standing all-ages venue run from the University of Minnesota's Coffman Union building) has featured an indispensable catalog of long form interview with a highly discerning list of musicians, local and national. With past principles like P.O.S., Slug (of Atmosphere, doi) and Kid Dakota, every season of Making Music warrants some serious attention.
Today on Making Music's website, the line-up for the 2009 spring season has been announced, and with Black Blondie, David Longstreth (of the venerable New York electronic outfit Dirty Projectors), and Trip Shakespeare's Dan wilson, it's a scattering of gold doubloons that should make your spring viewing highly enriching.
