Mark Howell in conversation with Bernard Meisler.
Musical archaeologist (and great guitar player) Mark Howell has played with everybody in the – what would you call it? – avant-progressive-jazz-rock scene – Bill Laswell, George Cartwright, Tom Cora, Anton Fier, John Zorn and Elliott Sharp, to name but a few. He was an original member of Fred Frith’s Guitar Quartet, Curlew and Timber, along with Rick Brown (75 Dollar Bill) and Jenny Wade (Swans, Mayakovsky Maximum Access). These days, Mark works as a musical archaeologist, and is creating electronic loops with Camila Montoya. We spoke about all of that, and Mark also related his classic meeting with Jerry Garcia story.
Towards the end of the show, we’ll hear some musical clips, including “Anti-Mother-In-Law Car,” by Timber, which is also the theme music for this podcast. Now you get to hear the whole thing!

Holy Mother of God ! I grew up with this guy. Lost track of him. Went to his first wedding with Judy Dunaway. Took my kids to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and we all watched it together. Regular guy. Oh sure…Met Stephanie once. Nice lady. She had some influence on my daughter Alison the dancer in our family.
Just a couple of regular folks…. Oh sure!
He knows more people in the music business than I know period .
Mark and his wife Stephanie are both phenomenal.
