kiss me again

on a normal forgettable day while taking my 20 minute subway ride to practice i look over and appear to see a man who looks like nicky siano. i walk up to him and say hey nicky siano right, hes like yes. we end up talking about music the whole ride and really hitting it off. nicky ended up coming to watch us practice one day and ultimately djing before we played at our first show ever in NYC. for those of you who do know, it was one of the most humbling and inspiring moments of my musical career. for those who dont, nicky was the owner and dj of the gallery and later one of the original djs at studio 54. nicky was a pioneer in deejaying and disco as well producing the record kiss me again under the name dinosaur. it was also arthur russells first dance record. some guy named david byrne played guitar on it. here is a link to said song. the break rules, as does the whole thing.

for more inspiration pick up this comp that nicky curated going back to his days at the gallery. its on the excellent soul jazz records, who may be one of the only labels that exist that hasnt put a bad record out yet.
