I met Alice on New Year's Eve 2002 (it was after midnight). I was quite drunk that night but we have been friends ever since.
She has played in a few different bands in the time that I have known her, but I suppose she decided it wasn't worth it anymore and decided to go solo.
She was in a band called The Vels in the mid 1980's that had a video on MTV. When I was an employee there I dubbed it along with an interview that she gave for some underground music show I can't recall the name of from about the same time. She has no recollection of giving the interview.
I used to live down the street from Alice and we would have drinks at Enid's on a somewhat regular basis. At the end of the night we would go to the deli around the corner where I would purchase a sandwich and Alice would purchase a Fudge-O.
She recently released the excellent Sky Flowers which you should do yourself a favor and purchase.
Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, a CD by Alice Cohen.
