Listen Here: Karp Top Shelf Interview MP3
This record really stands the test of time. Jared has been making killer
records since Karp disbanded. Karp’s Self-titledLP is just as crushing and groovy as his later work in Big
Business and currently The Melvins. Here, he goes into detail about writing and
recording this record, good times in Gainesville,
and the demise of Karp. Thanks to Natalie who let us barge in on her scheduled
time in the GROW studio to get this one done.
K Records did get back to us after the interview was conducted. To the best of
their knowledge, they made 1,000 LPs one time, all black.
Technical note: This was recorded on two microphones. We shared one, Jared had
the other. Somehow Jared’s mic didn’t record. His audio came through as a faint
ghost through our mic. This was an editing nightmare. I won’t bore you with the
tech details, but keep your volume knob close while you are listening.
