A seminal power-trio of early-to-mid 90's alternative-rock, Buffalo Tom are fresh off the funding of a brand new album via PledgeMusic, and plotting tour dates this year around the upcoming 25th anniversary reissue of their influential third album, Let Me Come Over. Today, singer/guitarist Bill Janovitz discusses the feeling of having his music on vinyl for the first time, discovering tons of classic 45's that were left behind by his neighbors, the eclectic sounds of 70's AM radio, the democratic nature of Buffalo Tom choosing their album art and earning some cool points with his daughter for getting a song dedication from Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard. Plus we delve into his work as an author on two Rolling Stones books, a bit of history on the recording of Buffalo Tom's Sleepy Eyed album and the enigmatic persona of J. Mascis. Visit pledgemusic.com/projects/buffalotom for info on contributing towards the next BT album and follow @billjanovitz and @BuffaloTomBand on Twitter for other upcoming announcements!
