What is love, and why does it require commemoration? Valentine’s Day is a memorial since my best friend and band-mate Chris “Playboy” Saathoff was killed on February 14, 2004. This mix tape compiles songs I hear at the intersection of romance and sorrow.

Deep cuts include “Baby” from the last live concert Chris Playboy and I played on In the Red, an alternate version of “Girl U Want” by Devo, wisdom from legends like Richard Hell, Greg Cartwright, and old Detroit soul legend Nathaniel Mayer who I had the pleasure to play with on Valentine’s Day in Las Vegas many years ago.  Check out White Mystery on tour this spring and hug your friends.  Enjoy!
