About Much Much More:
In 2006 and 2007 I [Philip von Zweck] organized the Much More lecture series (named for my late cat Mucho Maas) in my Humboldt Park living room, the same room which served as VONZWECK. The series presented 9 talks by Academy Records in conversation with Anthony Elms, EC Brown, The Mount Baldy Expedition, Anthony Elms, Julia Marsh, John Neff, Huey Copeland, Paul Nudd and Lane Relyea (http://www.stopgostop.com/VONZWECK/lectures.htm). With the end of VONZWECK the series stopped, or went on hiatus. I always said I might restart it at the Humboldt Park branch of the Chicago Public Library. Well, things got busy- I got a job where I set up talks and stuff, and then the branch was closed for expansion and things just didn’t happen for a while, sorry for the delay.
