Mike Edison: I Have Fun Everywhere I Go

Mike Edison is a dirty old man. He is also a great storyteller, a musician and funny as hell. Being the former main man at porn rag Screw and dope rag High Times and a stint as a professional wrestler is good for an unusual spoken word album produced by Jon Spencer who created a nasty backdrop for Edison's off-the-cuff machismo ramblings. I Have Fun Everywhere I Go is exactly that -- fun. Not for the squeamish and the pious. If you dug Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor (when he was a stand-up comedian, not the watered down awful actor), this one's for you. It is the sonic companion for his forthcoming memoirs I Have Fun Everywhere I Go: Savage Tales of Pot, Porn, Punk Rock, Pro Wrestling, Talking Apes, Evil Bosses, Dirty Blues, American Heroes, and the Most Notorious Magazines in the World.
