The Kernal and His New Strangers

Words by Sean Moeller, Illustration by Johnnie Cluney, Recording engineered by Mike Gentry

The Welcome To Daytrotter tag that Malcolm Holcomb taped for us a number of years ago has the old boy talking about liking to stare into a black cup of coffee. He then quickly warns, "But don't stare at it too long. It'll consume you." It feels like a conversation that we could and maybe do have -- without knowing it -- with The Kernal and His New Strangers. It doesn't take much to get consumed. We live for it. He lives for it.
