and let me make one thing PERFECTLY CLEAR - Michael Zilkha deserves 1000000% props for taking a chance on The Waitresses. and recording a Christmas song was entirely his idea, for which i am forever grateful.

here's his comment/corrections/clarifications re: the podcast:

Dear Chris,
I may not have been much good at getting distribution but it was most definitely Ze and not Island who signed you. I was also quite involved in the album, restraining some of your free jazz tendencies and requesting that you use my favourite Beckett line "I can't go on, I'll go on" in one of your songs. You were definitely A & R'd, which accounts for some of the difference between the first and second albums. I had to do the same thing with August and when he left me his records became more impenetrable. On the other hand I had forgotten how much trouble I had coming up with distribution and I apologize for that. Don and David Was were just as mid-western as you were. And so was James Chance, an outsider with his face glued to the window looking in. That's what I was growing up as a foreigner in England, and the records I put out were about alienation and not belonging and trying to function and putting a brave face on it. So we were actually an ideal match and The Waitresses fit in perfectly with the rest of the acts on Ze. I may have been Euro-trash but my heroes were Bob Dylan, Neil Young, the Velvet Underground, Miles Davis and James Brown.
So sad about Karin Berg.
Warmly,
Michael>

ALL TRUE.
