Last week I was racking my brain attempting to recall when I first met Mr. Murphy. It took me a while, but I eventually deduced the exact moment…
It was around 5 years ago… when I was still exercising/exorcising the many demons post the breakdown of my marriage.
It was just outside one of the dirtiest nightclubs that I have ever experienced… the washrooms were utterly SHOCKING.
I remember it distinctly, as around 10 minutes after my first rendezvous with James I received a blow to the celiac plexus from the owner of said club, a gentleman who looked not dissimilar to Lee Van Cleef’s tougher brother. Oof!
Anyway… a number of years later James took some time out of his mental touring schedule with LCD Soundsystem to sit down with Good Food Revolution and a wonderful platter of charcuterie courtesy of Reds Bistro Chef Michael Steh… perhaps the best exposition of charcuterie I have ever experienced, a thought shared by my fellow diners.
