Le Pot Pourri Questionnaire: Andy Jarvis
Andy Jarvis comes from the same school of UK psychedelia as one of his close collaborators, Ben Reynolds. Jarvis spends his time recording solo mini-epics as well as playing in numerous duos and groups like Sculptress and w/ his sister Mikarla. Not only that, but he also runs the excellent and unparallelled three-inch CDR imprint, Firstperson. The label has cranked out a few dozen releases in the past few years, all handsomely packaged in transparent acestate covers. All hail Andy Jarvis.
I am now, yes.
