#SupportPGHMusic // Exclusively on HughShows Radio streaming at the bottom of the page, enjoy the entire December 13, 2014 concert of HughShows Live at Eide’s Finale featuring mini sets from acoustic and solo versions of my favorite Pittsburgh bands during the marathon 6 hour concert. //

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.
