“What was evident after each listen was how funny the album was and how intricate each track was…This isn’t your usual spoken word/comedy album where the set ups and punchlines follow each other. It’s far more interesting” – excellent review of ‘The Lost Archimedes’ by Nick Roseblade on The Quietus
‘Young Southpaw serves up something strange with Bat Soup Comedy’. Great piece on Vanyaland by Jason Greenough
“I realized I was loving every second of the insane human tornado that was the second edition of the Bat Soup comedy series. Organized and emceed by local surrealist comedian Young Southpaw, the lineup and its jostling forces—braggadocio and vulnerability, irony and candor, buoyancy and cynicism—attracted and repelled, and sure enough, I was magnetized.” – review of BAT SOUP II by Dan Mims in Daily Nutmeg
Feature on Southpaw in the CT Post by Daphne Saloomey
Young Southpaw interview with the Pynchon In Public Podcast. One of the best Southpaw talks out there.
What is your opinion of Jennifer Lopez?
You got that, that J. Lo, you know…like L.A. Guns’ second album ‘Cocked & Loaded’, you know, they had that song… ‘The Ballad of Jayne’, about Jayne Mansfield so I guess J. Man, there ya go (laughs). Like uh Jayman, those Jayman Islands down there, I ain’t never been but I hear they’re nice. You got the beach down there, you know, the sand, runnin’ your toes all over it you know…dippin’ your feet in the water, actually go can probably go further than just dippin’ your feet, prolly real nice to feel the cool water in that hot weather. Or maybe it’s warm water, the weather make it all, all hot, heated up you know like a kettle? Different kettle of fish down there, prolly different fish too, prolly real different fish, different parts of the world and all. The world’s a big place. I mean I think that L.A. Guns album sold pretty well in Japan. Another J island. I wonder if they wanted to call it Jayman but found the name was already taken, you know registered with the island copyright authorities? Or maybe the other way around cause Japan’s been around a long time. <read more>
