- An article about Ramsey Kearney, the man behind the song-poem outfit Nashco

Kearney puts their words to music and cuts a demo. "I've had some lulus," he
Kearney would know. He co-wrote and sang the lulu of them all, John Trubee's
song-poem "Blind Man's Penis."

more attention than some of my great songs." "
