The Claudettes were eating a vegan breakfast (despite the omnivorous protests of at least one of the members) in a Michigan cafe when the text messages starting coming in: they were currently being featured on Sound Opinions. Hosted by renowned music critics Gret Kot and Jim DeRogatis, “The World’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Talk Show” is heard on NPR stations all around the country each week.
Infernal Piano Plot…Hatched was picked by Kot as one of his “Buried Treasures” of the year — albums that might be flying under the radar but deserve more attention. Miss Claudette was thrilled at Kot’s praise of her band and his chronicle of her business operations, too. Thank you, Sound Opinions!
