Morgan Taylor of Mink shares stories of the '80 and 90s Datyon, Ohio music scene up to creating children's character Gustafer Yellowgold

Author & Special Guests

We’re joined by Morgan Taylor, formerly of the band Mink, to help us revisit our review of their album Get In Get Out from season one. We didn’t know much about the band and their history, or of the Dayton, Ohio scene in the ‘80s or ‘90s, so Morgan walks us through this small but influential town. Morgan takes us back to his earliest bands, opening for an embryonic Guided By Voices. He walks through the half dozen bands he played with, including the short lived acoustic duo Glee & Beak, that opened for Bob Dylan, along with tracing the connected lineage of each Mink member, and how an opportunity to play in the opening band for a Lisa Loeb tour launched Mink. Morgan talks about becoming the “it” band in Dayton, hanging out at Bob Pollard’s legendary Monument Club, getting a standing ovation from Kim Deal, and what led to the band breaking up. There so much to cover, including how Morgan utilized his decades as a musician and interest in illustration to create Gustafer Yellowgold, a multi-media performance of live music, colored-pencil animations and storytelling for children.
