I think he actually called " most whack" show ever, I remember thinking how
funny it was to hear Tom use the term whack.

The guitarist was Alan Licht, I looked him up on the net when I got home and
he's an "avant-garde" guitarist with a bunch of records to his credit. As I

on a record a band he plays with outside of Television.
