On today's show, I talk to John Colpitts AKA Kid Millions of the
bands Oneida and Man Forever. John started drumming in high
school and moved to New York in the late-90s to get into music more
seriously. After working in music adjacent jobs like being the
booker for The Knitting Factory and playing in a jazz trio, John
and some friends eventually formed Oneida. In the last 16 years,
Oneida's released a dozen albums and toured all over the world.
Most recently, John put out an album of minimalist percussion under the name Man
Forever. It's on Thrill Jockey, and it's really awesome!
