Scott Sparling


Wire to Wire is set in 1978, so all of the music is from that era or earlier. Lane plays Hendrix when she does glue. Slater and Harp listen to Michigan music: Seger, Iggy and the Stooges, the MC5. Matthews isn’t part of that; he’s got John Coltrane going in the van. Listen to this music on my page.
