On today's episode, I talk to musician Kurt Heasley. A
Floridian by birth, Kurt spent his early years in Hopatcong, NJ and
in Virginia Beach. In 1988, he recorded a demo tape which he gave
to Slumberland Records boss Mike Schulman. Schulman was so
impressed with the demo that he released Kurt's first records,
which were recorded under the name The Lilys. Between 1992 and
2006, Kurt would go on to record eight albums as The Lilys
including A Brief History of Amazing Letdowns, Eccsame
the Photon Band, and Everything Wrong Is Imaginary,
which span genres from shoegaze to psych-rock to mod revival.
Although Kurt stopped making music full time to concentrate on
other pursuits, he plays every now and then, including some recent
shows in Philly and New York.
