wwoman is a brand new lo-fi psych pop outfit from Pittsburgh songwriter Greg Smee who is dropping a 10 track debut release this week in the form of cassettes and CDs. I want to thank Greg for taking the time to participating in this edition of First/Last.

The first album you ever bought?

I got a two-banger of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, and Dookie.
I don’t think I even had a CD player yet but I still stand by my purchases.

Your last album bought?

I bought the new Mild High Club album a few weeks ago. The dude who is in creative control over there, Alex, is someone I look to for arrangement ideas.
The left turn they took is still settling in on me, but I do enjoy this one for sure.

Favorite album of all time?

It’s got to be some Beatles stuff, though I’m not a hands-down type of guy. I’ve been only listening to Life of Pablo for like a month now, if that says anything.

Least favorite/most disappointing album?

Putting me on the spot here.

First concert attended?

Dropkick Murphys, woah.

Last concert?

I don’t get out much.

Favorite concert ever?

One that comes to mind is Foxygen–they are super high energy in a live setting.
They can even transfer spare energy successfully on a weeknight in Pittsburgh.

Least favorite concert?

We saw Cocorosie a couple years ago, who I admittedly never followed, so maybe I was off to a bad start. They had technical issues on stage, which was fine, but they were like castigating the sound guy and ended up leaving the stage. It was a mess.

Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?

It’s great to see the city growing like it is, in a somewhat responsible manner. We do need to make sure we are nurturing the right auras.
Thanks, Greg. Those are two pretty un-embarrassing first albums you picked up there. Usually it’s something like Backstreet Boys but they are solid, man.
