<blockquote><i>''"Sophomore year in college, film school acquaintance [[Andrew Laurich]] and I were out videotaping a wedding. In the car on the way back, he played me a CD of his housemate’s high school band, called “[[ListedBlack]].” I thought it was OK, but didn’t think much of it.''

''I had been to a few parties at their house, but the only person I really knew there for a while was Laurich. During Fall Semester 2002, [[Rob]] formally introduced himself to me (”I live with Andrew Laurich”) at a Musicology lecture. We began to get lunch after class semi-regularly, swapping e-mails and so forth. He sent me a few recordings of himself, [[Andrew Horowitz]], and [[Zubin]] performing a small concert in the basement of the Frieze building, which used to be an academic facility on campus. I e-mailed him a couple of experimental tracks I had made over the summer for fun with my high school friend Andrew Kurtz: Covers of “Lady Madonna” by the Beatles and “Space Oddity” by David Bowie.''

''I was very surprised when Rob invited me to practice with his band one day; I had no intention of joining or committing to the project whatsoever. The idea of being in an actual band had never occurred to me. [[Steve Gallagher]] was invited around the same time (maybe a practice later or so), and Rob later told me that he thought I’d be an adequate lead guitarist based on some of the stuff I did in “Space Oddity.” I played a couple gigs with them (first as “Gallagher,” then as “540,” the address of their house) as a backup musician, but I didn’t really feel like part of the band until I suggested that we name it [[Tally Hall]] and Rob actually listened. He subsequently proposed it to the group (Tally Hall was one of many names I suggested via e-mail), and it was unanimous after some explaining to Andrew Horowitz, the only out-of-stater. I was basically Rob’s very inexperienced hired gun until we covered “Blinded By The Light” at the [[Blind Pig]]. Then Andrew wrote “[[Good Day]],” I wrote “[[Ruler Of Everything]],” etc."''</i></blockquote>
