Paul Major Talks with Stephen Malkmus for the Talkhouse Podcast

Music aficionado Paul Major recalls some interesting and funny stories on record collecting, meeting musicians, and one lucky dog bite.

To celebrate the release of Feel the Music: The Psychedelic Worlds of Paul Major, Stephen Malkmus (Pavement, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks) sat down with Major (Endless Boogie) at NYC’s famed Bowery Ballroom for a live conversation. Their talk takes in Major’s life as a preeminent private press psych rock collector, dealer and champion; how he was protected by the mob while slinging records in ’70s Manhattan; the dog bite that prevented him from accepting Johnny Thunders’ offer to shoot up; and so much more. Joining me for this episode’s introduction is special guest Matt Sweeney (Chavez, ZWAN, Iggy Pop, Endless Boogie).
